Enter Mr. Scot. Well this thread is heading into deja vu territory rather quickly.

Here's a challenge for you. Read the RG3 profile linked above and quote the parts that show it's racist.

Hey let me throw one back at you, find my post where I referenced said write up as being racist. I'll wait.

Clarify. The writeup on Smith or on Griffin?

If, as has been suggested here, Nawrocki hates black quarterbacks, then all his evaluations of said quarterbacks should reflect that, correct?

To you, or anyone else wanting to defend that point, quote the parts of the RG3 profile that support the argument.

If it doesn't, then say so.

Does anyone actually take Nawrocki seriously?

I don't know if he's a racist, but I know he's an idiot so the question of racism is irrelevant to me.

From another draft guy I follow who's a QB guy, pretty interesting to say the least...

(and look at his more recent tweets if you haven't already)

Both, because I never said it. The words ignorant and irresponsible do however come to mind when I hear his name though. One article on Robert Griffin isn't going to simply wipe away the rest of his history.

I don't honestly know if it's correct to call him an analyst. He's more of a compiler. He interviews scouts and front office people and summarizes what he gets from them.

The results are actually fairly accurate a lot of the time (read the RG3 one and you'll see the primary concern was durability) but like all draft analysis, sometimes it's off - occasionally way off.

Now, the guy he replaced at PFW, that guy was an analyst. Joel Buchsbaum was arguably the best draft analyst ever. He was dead on target probably better than 80-90% of the time. And Buchsbaum pretty much did it all himself. Nothing second hand.

Sadly, Buchsbaum died young (mid-40s if I remember right). Shame. Loved reading his draft previews. Wish he was still around to write them.

In other words, it doesn't matter if there's evidence that contradicts your views. You'll still hang on to them and insist they're true regardless of the facts.

There's a word for that particular debate tactic. It's called "losing".

If you think RG3 is the only black quarterback he gave positive reviews, I can guarantee you haven't read them. I've been reading them for years. That's how I know the whole notion is pretty ignorant.

Is he wrong sometimes? Definitely, and way more so than the guy he replaced (see above) but the people suggesting he's racist are pretty clearly uninformed. And from the sound of it, I'd guess they don't really care to be informed if it contradicts their knee-jerk reactions.

    • I had always assumed she was dardaroarroar
    • elton simpson was monitored over a 9 year period (fbi claims there were breaks but at the least there were still years of monitoring) and at least $132,000 in cash was spent on one informant alone. here's the fbi's version in the immediate aftermath of the shooting:   Three hours before gunmen attacked an anti-Prophet Muhammad event in Garland, Texas on Sunday, the FBI sent a bulletin to local police with a photo of one of the shooters, Elton Simpson, noting that he was "interested in the event," FBI director James Comey said. At the time, the FBI had no reason to believe that Simpson intended to attack the event, Comey told reporters Thursday. Nor did the agency know that Simpson was already on his way there. Comey also said that he does not believe that the police officer who shot Simpson and the second gunman, Soofi Nadir, was aware of the bulletin. He went on to say that while the investigation of the Phoenix gunmen is far from complete, Comey believes the FBI acted appropriately. ..... Two weeks before the Garland event, which invited artists to draw illustrations of Muhammad, the FBI and Homeland Security warned law enforcement agencies across the country that it was at risk of being targeted by Islamic extremists. The advisory noted that supporters of ISIS and other terror groups had posted links to the contest on Twitter. Simpson was reading those posts, and communicated with an American in Somalia who'd called for attacking the event, investigators have said. The FBI then developed information that Simpson might be interested in traveling to Garland, Comey said. The Sunday bulletin followed. ..... The FBI now has hundreds of investigations of potential home grown extremists under way, with cases open in every state. "I know there are other Elton Simpsons out there," Comey said. Finding them, however, is a "very hard task," he said. Investigators can follow messages that are posted on public twitter accounts. But ISIS recruiters are steering people off Twitter into encrypted forums, which the government cannot see, Comey said. "Its the old going-dark problem, in living color," said Comey. He added: "We have hundreds working on it around the clock. But in almost every case of violence, someone saw something. A friend, a family member. Its more important than ever for people to speak up."     ^^^just a reminder for the bolded parts that a federal agent was in the car directly behind them as they opened their doors and began their short lived attack
    • Looks like it has potential. BvS was terrible. I will say the extended version was a better film but still not good. Suicide Squad was one of the worst films I've seen in a while.  That said of course I will waste my money and go see this. I hope they bring back Batman's more cunning qualities in future films. I got the sense that in BvS he was a what you see is what you get type of guy. You don't get the feeling that he has something up his sleeve at all times. Which was something Nolan/Bale had, almost Bond-esque.
