Former LSU and current New England Patriot defensive lineman Ricky Jean-Francois went up to Leonard Fournette, who was clearly emotional after Sunday's AFC Championship game, and gave him some positive word of encouragement after the tough loss.

Fantastic rookie season Leonard. Keep your head high.

When you have the potential to be a great at something, I think it's more than just a game. It's his life and legacy, and eveything he's worked for the past year. It's not like he's a guy goin to play a game of pool at a bar.

I didn’t even realize RJF was still playing. He’s had quite a career.

I know you're trying you be nice, but there is no guarantee he will be back soon.

The Jags are a terrible franchise. Every time they get close to elite status, they go ahead and scuttle the team. LF needs to get out of there.

Yeah LF needs to leave one of the brightest young teams in the NFL. Do you not pay attention to how the saints, Seahawks and others turned their franchises around?

Learn something about the Jags history and then run your mouth, 'doctor'.

I think some of you are missing my point. I have no hate or blame injuries for anything. I overcame my adversity and had a very successful career in the private sector. That was God’s plan for me. I’m truly blessed! I just don’t believe in crying after a loss. As far as LF goes, I’ve always supported him. Even while some on this panel ragged him about his low production against Bama! I pointed out that poor o-line play and predictable play calling had a lot to do with that. Leonard is a class act. Don’t misunderstand me. I just don’t see where it’s worth crying over. I never saw Manning, Favre, Brees, Brady, or Marino cry after losing a SB or Championship game, have you? That’s my point. Take a negative and turn it into a positive!

Stop acting like crying is a sign of weakness. That is where the disconnect is, no one is faulting the rest of your message. Its ok to cry, you are allowed to let your emotions come out sometimes. Do you fault him for crying when his daughter was born?

Never said it was, Lsu101205. I have a daughter, a graduate of LSU, and I didn’t cry when she was born. Instead, I thought about my responsibilities and financial obligations in order to give her a good life. I assure you, I’ve cried at the loss of friends and loved ones just like anyone. I just do it privately.

And that is a respectable response. And I dont think one way or another of that. But the point is everyone responds differently and there is no reason to claim to tell a grown man how he should react to a loss.

The Jags got there because of Fournette. Bortles probably will be testing the free market and (Robert) Blake will give the Jaguar's the bird.

Actually, I played sports my whole life and tore up almost everything on my body at one time or another. I played to win, even though I didn’t get paid to do it. I missed my chance due to injuries, which is worse than losing a game. So don’t tell me I don’t know what goes into it. Add surgeries and extensive rehab sessions to that, and You might know what goes into it. And I never cried, you bunch of pussies!

So I take it because you missed "a chance" you got to take that anger and hate you have inside out on one of the most passionate and greatest tigers to walk into Death Valley. Maybe you need to look at both sides of the Spectrum and realize not everyone plays the game like you did and the emotion of that moment takes over a lot of us and he handled the situation differently.

There’s always one mofo on this board who has some dumb shite to say and gets a billion downvotes. This time it’s you. Sucks you didn’t take care of your body, sucks you didn’t make it. Nobody gives a shite. Take it up with your therapist.

Fournette should be use to losing big games from his time here

I really wish players would stop crying after a loss. I know a lot of work over a long season culminating in a loss sucks, but guess what? You now have a six month vacation and millions of dollars in the bank to take your family wherever you want and relax! This sensitivity crap is for the birds! You’re supposed to be gladiators of the gridiron! Start acting like it! Act pissed off! Your teammates will see this as a sign of strength, and run through a brick wall for you! Not so much when they see you cry! Man up, LF7!

I take it you never played sports or a meaningful game in your life. Athletes at the top of their sport put the body through hell for the game they love. I want my players to show that kind of emotion which shows me how much they really care about the game.

You have no idea what goes into it apparently. He is not crying from sadness, he is upset and frustrated . Maybe you should have played a sport instead of being a couch potato great

He was a great player, but he was suspended the entire season. He played in the title game because it was the next semester.

Tiger brotherhood spans the years even though these 2 were never close to playing together here. Awesome to see that bond.

Blame that loss on the HC. 3 minutes left, 3 TO and he passed every play.

Lol always the head coach in football. Had nothing to do with Brady throwing for almost 150 yards in the 4th. When he threw for that amount in the first 3 qtrs. Jack going out and Dareus getting hurt also. It's the coach
