The Special One

What The "experts" Are Saying About Our Draft

46 posts in this topic

They all comment that we did not address our primary need, DT. Here is why:

Andre Neblett, 23

Frank Kearse, 23

Sione Fua, 23

Terrell McClain 23

Jason Shirly, 26

Ron Edwards, 32

LB and G were bigger needs, but the media tends to forget about players on IR or the development of rookies. Oh, and if you wanted an elite DE:

Greg Hardy, 23

Thomas Keiser, 23

Eric Norwood, 23

Charles Johnson 25

Antwan Applewhite 26

Ages from Panthers,com

I think you can scratch off Norwood off that list.

Alexander looked explosive as hell on his highlight tape. Granted, it was a highlight tape but the dude looks quick.

love Alexander's explosive plays too and of course his tremendous wingspan will help him knock the ball out of QB's hand, even if he doesn't beat OT to the QB and his ability to knock down passes,but Keiser looked great with such limited playing time and the off-season should help his development even more; I just don't know who will be activated on Gameday

Heard bill polian yesterday call Marty an excellent gm on espn.

I heard that too. This was a RR pick. He said that Marty was evaluating Lewis and RR noticed Alexander on Marty's computer. RR also is the one who wanted Silalotu and JR Campbell, a pick Gil Brandt called, "stealing." Marty's GM skills were displayed when Fox was a lame duck and he drafted future stars like Clausen, Armanti, and Norwood--one heck of a draft. This team is getting a personality now/

I'm hoping the media thinks we need a DT the same way they all thought Cam would amount to nothing...

The "Experts" agree with the vast majority of Huddlers:

64% A grade

30% B grade

Only Charles Johnson has proven he can actually play.

Now that you guys drafted a QB, shouldn't you be bloviating on the www.racistmascotredskinfans.com message board?

I really think we had an excellent draft and getting both Alexander and Adams in the 4th will turn out to be HUGE value picks.

    • I took it as voth getting defensive on behalf of the media when Gettleman slighted them in his comments. I like voth, but I don't like the attitude I've seen for years that is typical among media/journalists. .."we are owed access to everything and everyone.  Don't you dare turn us down or speak ill about us or we'll make you pay."
    • If y'all want to talk about a legit issue with illegals lets talk about the babies they make here and then the inability to collect child support when they peace out.  Until the Trump goes after the business that employee them, it's all pious claptrap.
    • I'm very familiar with the passage and the events that brought about His answer. Yes, the response was savvy, but He also didn't lie. There's another important passage about a widow donating her last two coins while the rich man donated more, but less, too. I'm sure you can massage that to nuance something to assuage your soul, but really, when it comes down to it all, there are some folks on the Conservative side that preach long and hard about following Jesus. The problem is that when they get to the part about taking care of the sick, the poor, the incarcerated and the downtrodden, they suddenly have a host of excuses and want to start parsing the wording so that they don't have to look at themselves and say, "Man, I'm supposed to be there for the less fortunate, but nah, not really. I mean, yeah, Salvation and all, but now we're talking about my hard-earned money." They always want the New Testament's forgiveness to apply to themselves, and they delight in the Old Testament being visited upon other folks. Outside of religion, they're also the ones who think it's a crying shame that "those people" don't have the means to fix themselves and then shake it off with the rationalization that those folks probably got themselves into that mess in the first place. We're all guilty of that to some degree, sadly, myself included.
