“We’d beat the (expletive) out of [the Eagles] cause we was rolling,” Kamara said. “If we won [versus Minnesota], I knew nobody was gonna stop us cause we came all the way back.”
Naturally, that doesn’t go unnoticed. But Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins brushed off Kamara’s bravado to Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com:
“No, we we won the Super Bowl. The bulletin board material is more for you guys than us,” he said.
Kamara was asked again about his expletive-ridden comments on Thursday, and he didn’t back down. Per Luke Johnson of the Times-Picayune:
“I don’t care if we’re playing against The Monstars. Whatever team I’m on, I’m going to say we’re going to win. Period. I guarantee you it’s the same with any guy in this league that feels strongly about the team they’re on,” he said.
“It’s no disrespect, direct disrespect. I didn’t call them a name, a direct name. It’s just my team against your team. And that’s all I’m going to say about that.”
So as Kamara explains it, he looks at every game and every matchup with confidence – whether it’s the reigning Super Bowl champions, or the juiced-up alien villains from “Space Jam.” There’s something to be said for having that much self-assurance.
