TMZ- We spoke with Jim Mallett ... who says he spent the night at Ryan's home after the Texans lost to the Colts Thursday night -- a game in which Ryan was pulled after suffering a minor injury in the 2nd quarter.
“He’s pissed off. He’s a competitor. He wants to be in there,” Jim tells us … “He was 8 for 10 when he came out. He wants to play.”
Ryan’s also been under attack for leaving the sidelines and heading towards the locker room before the 1st half was over … but Jim says Ryan insists it was a simple mistake because he thought the clock ran out, he wasn’t throwing a hissy fit.
“He said to me, ‘I didn’t do anything on purpose.’ And I can tell you that’s true. That’s not Ryan.”
“For people to portray him as a bad person or teammate, they don’t understand. If they were to meet our family, they’d know he was a good person. A compassion kid. Competitor. Someone who wants to do what’s right for the team.”
Jim says Ryan isn’t the only one impacted by the criticism — “You don’t know how bad it hurts the family. Ryan’s grandmas … it effects them big time. They read it all. It hurts them. I’ve seen them in tears.”
Ryan Mallet ladies and gentleman, the first professional athlete to have grandmothers that think he can do no wrong. Hey Jim, stop trying to call upon the help of the elderly to quiet down the criticisms of your son. Tell your mother and your mother-in-law to get the fuck off the internet. That's your first mistake. Who taught Nana and Grammy how to bookmark blog sites? They are supposed to be hobbling to the door first thing in the morning to see what the local beat writers have to say about little Ry-Ry. They should be in the kitchen halfway through cooking their grandson's favorite batch of cookies, not contributing to a fucking TMZ article. You can't have grandmothers keeping track of what's happening out there in the bowls of the internet. Their heart can't take half the things being said about their little angel.
Cut the fucking cord Jimbo, your kid is a douchebag. He didn't accidentally walk off the field before halftime. That's the worst excuse ever. If that were the truth he would be an idiot, and it's better to father an asshole than a dumbass. I respect the fact that your kid wants to be on the field. However, you can be a competitor without bickering on the sidelines. Look at the bright side, at least your kid made it to the NFL. That's a notch on your belt brotha, clearly you got some talented swimmers. However, with that notch comes the responsibility to stay numb to the hate when the whole world chastises your kid for being a shithead in front of a national audience. I don't need to sit down and have Thanksgiving dinner with the Mallet family to know that their son is immature and obviously can't handle the responsibility of being an NFL quarterback. If their kid wanted to do what was right for the team he wouldn't have been pouting up and down the sidelines like his dog just got put to sleep while his backup got the team back in the game. He wouldn't have been standing there with his arms folded like a menopausal woman on line at 'The Gap'.
Don't tell ME that I don't understand. I got a 50 inch TV and HD my friend. I can lipread "fucking bullshit man" with the best of 'em. You want to be the gritty, rough around the edges quarterback that's cussing up a storm before leaving the sidelines early then you can't be the grandma's boy that needs a sleepover to cry on daddy's shoulder. If you want to silence the critics then shut the fuck up and beat out Brian Hoyer. Shouldn't be all that difficult. If you deserved to be playing then you wouldn't need your entire family tree manning the frontlines of your reputation.
