Not concerned with your friend's opinion. Not a knock on him, but I will go with the paid analysts who seem to all love him across the board.
Right, and most certainly respect your decision to do so. For all you know I am making this up.
These analyst look at "tape" and I think a lot of guys just piggyback off each others opinion.
Let me remind you that these same analyst also don't get a feel for what type of person a player is outside of the game and in real life.
The guy who is in the NFL said Norman is a good player but is a douche. That's at least an endorsement from someone who is in the NFL believing the guy can make it in the league.
