Mike McGlinchey joined Lamont & Tonelli for his weekly hit on Wednesday after a tough loss vs. the Seahawks.
McGlinchey shared an interesting anecdote about how as a young player, he had to get over the mental hurdle of playing against guys he idolized when he was in high school
“It hasn’t happened to me in a longtime, because I’ve been in the league for three years now, but the first year that was something I had to get over,” McGlinchey said. “I had to get over that I was playing against these guys that I grew up idolizing and watching and all that kind of stuff.
“Especially the defensive players like Von Miller and JJ Watt and guys who were taking off when I was starting high school. Those were the ones where I was like holy sh-, smokes, like I’ve got to figure out how to block these guys that are legends of the NFL. I got a grasp on that, thank god, and have been able to settle in here and have some success.”
