Rayzor I asked you to provide a game I could watch where Short was less than stellar, more so so any other of the top DL.
You linked a vid in which he was absolutely beastly for pretty much the entire game which myself and 2 other posters pointed out. Did you just blindly pick that game?!? lol You obviously didnt watch it or you dont know what constitutes great qualities for a DL/UT. (double teams, TFL, sacks, tackles, pressure on the qb, anchoring your gap etc)
So I am asking you again, provide some vid of both Short and Floyd I can watch and break down. (u can pick any games you want as I am positive there wont be one where Floyd clearly out performs Short)
lol....blindly picked? yes...it was picked at random. why? because it would be the easiest way out to just go and look for one or two of his worst games only to have you come back and say that i picked them just because they were bad. truthfully that was too much effort put into this discussion, esp. when you admitted to not even watching a minute of it. your mind was already closed so that told me that any more effort would be futile.
and I'm not going to put any more effort into this discussion with you because I'm discussing it with a wall. you aren't seeing what i see. you aren't seeing what the vast majority of draftniks and analysts have seen. you aren't seeing what nfl execs have seen. you aren't seeing what his coaches have admitted to seeing and discussing with him about. you aren't seeing what even he admitted to seeing when he looked at his own tape with his coaches and admitted as a problem at the combine.
you aren't seeing that lack of consistency because either you can't or you won't. that tells me that whatever games i link to or post aren't going to be viewed the same way.
now i admitted that if the problem was, as he stated, his weight combined with the number of downs he was playing, then he may not be, as he described himself, a "sometimes guy" and might be worth the pick because when he's on, he's spectacular.
the problem is, you don't see the problem...and yes, it's worse than others ranked higher which is why it has been brought up so much. you want to prove he's not more inconsistent than others in his effort, go ahead. the burden is on you and if you have the time or think it's impkrtant enough to you to be right and prove me, the draftniks/analysts, nfl execs, his coaches, and even short himself wrong, then have at it. i'm fine and truly happy walking away from the discussion though, because i know that 1) most have reached the same conclusions i have and 2) really don't care all that much. if you want to take this as me running away from the discussion and a win for you or whatever, but the reality of the situation is that you are essentially alone (or in very small company) on an island with this thought that he isn't inconsistent.
either way...i'm out.
