I'm not saying it isn't a fact, it's just a pretty well known that none of us have game tape of college prospects. Also, there's a difference in the highlights that the OP is talking about, and what most of us are watching. I would be willing to bet that the OP has watched the same game cut ups all of us has, since he's had an opinion on many prospects....


Agreed.

I pretty much am wowed by every guy I look at based on his highlight reel.

Yea, the game cut ups give a much better idea, but you still need coaches tape to best evaluate a guy....

That's true, but it's all semantics. Who really gives a fug? At this point everyone knows what "tape" is in the context of the Huddle. It's less insufferable than all the grammatical errors in my opinion (but we put up with that every day). For example: to vs. too, or---my personal favorite---we're vs. were. It's not that big of a deal. Go with the flow and accept it.

NFL Game Rewind has coaches film...but I'm assuming you're talking about the draft prospects.

"I've watched tape"

Is almost as LAME as

"My sources told me"

You don't need coaches tape to form valid opinions. Need it to be an expert on players.

You could watch the NBC broadcast of Notre Dame games and tell Clausen sucked....looks like at least 31 teams did at least that

I agree with this completely. I wouldn't have had him on my board at all after watching Notre Dame while he was there....
