Redskins Safety LaRon Landry Says He’s A Beast That Needs To Be Untamed

During a meeting with the media Wednesday, Laron Landry stated in a colorful way that he fully intends to return to the lineup for Monday night’s game against the Dallas Cowboys. Via The Washington Post:

“Don’t calm me down. Let me go,” Landry said. “Untame this beast, man. It’s been a while.”

Well, I’m certainly not going to argue with the guy. Look at him. For a second there, I was afraid this undated photo of him was going to spring to life and leap through my monitor and pummel me.

Landry last saw regular season NFL action last Nov. 15 when he suffered a season-ending Achilles’ tendon injury. A hamstring pull during a preseason game further delayed his return to full-on Beast Mode.

With all the talk of needing to be untamed and being a beast and all that, Landry presumably spent a bulk of his time when not rehabbing his injuries watching the 1993 classic film, Untamed Heart. Or the NatGeo channel. One of the two. Or maybe a weekend trip to New Hampshire to ride the Untamed roller coaster turned him on to the untamed line of thinking. But if it were Untamed Heart, I wonder if he cried at the tragic ending of that film. Not that I did, of course. I save my weeping for The Notebook, like any self-respecting pansy man.
