Athletes, including the great ones, are notorious for their ability to self-motivate. Consider Tom Brady. Arguably the greatest quarterback all time, Brady should have nothing left to prove to anyone. But this past off-season, when Brady formed a film production company, it needed a name. The choice?

A reference to Brady’s draft spot in the 2000 NFL Draft.

Brady is certainly not alone in this regard. Remember Michael Jordan’s Hall of Fame speech? When he talked about those players who made teams back in high school instead of him? A few months ago the nation was captivated by “The Last Dance,” the documentary look at Jordan’s final season with the Chicago Bulls. It was the documentary that launched a thousand memes, or this video montage of every time that Jordan “took it personally:”

Add to the list Indianapolis Colts’ linebacker Darius Leonard, who has these custom-made cleats ready for training camp:

The cleats include references to perceived slights by the Colts’ linebacker, from his surprising selection in the 2018 Draft, the fact that he did not make a Pro Bowl last season, and even his Madden rating.

Add this to the fact that Leonard is antsy to just get inside the practice facility, and it seems like the young linebacker – one of the Top linebackers in the game according to Touchdown Wire – is rearing to go in 2020.

a baseball player running to catch a ball: It's hard to believe that one of the most dominant and versatile defensive linemen of the 1980s is not a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, but that is the position Joe Klecko finds himself in. Despite being the first defensive lineman in NFL history to earn Pro Bowl selections at all three positions on the line, a two-time first-team All-Pro and the 1981 NFL Defensive Player of the Year, Klecko is on the outside looking in when it comes to the Hall of Fame. The Pro Football Researchers Association named him to the PRFA Hall of Very Good in 2016, but that is not the same as enshrinement in Canton. If sacks were recorded for the entirety of Klecko's career instead of just at the very end of it, odds are he would be in the Hall of Fame right now. Either way, it's head-scratching as to why he has yet to receive football's highest honor.
