He looks sharp; he did before, too - but does nobody else get a little

turned off by the way some of the responses have come in (your post was just reporting the news, but some of the responses have puzzled me a little)?

I understand the comments about getting tackled by the hair being an issue. That's a practical concern. Same with the getting hazed comment (a practical concern, not sure why he'd be hazed for it, but it's at least a practical concern).

But what exactly is it about cutting his hair that makes him more committed to the NFL? Why is it such a great move by him? Why did his dad have to tell him to do it (and why is that such a good thing)?

Nobody's telling Trevor Lawrence he's gotta cut his hair (sure, he's projected #1 overall, so I get that, but nobody's told Clay Matthews to cut his hair, either). Todd Gurley has some sweet dreads. Andre Hopkins, too. The Griffin brothers... Does having dreads make him somehow less of a committed QB? Less of a good man?
