Still got so much to do for work today but cant wait to dig into it, Em. Thanks for your contribution to the "good" pile.

 

 

favorite line so far - "Watching Kung-Fu movies doesn’t make you a Karate Master"   in the context of Draft analysts arent experts. Damn I wasted a lot of time on Saturday mornings as a kid. That poo is still entertaining though.

 

Thanks Cap'n! Glad you're enjoying it. There were about 15 that didn't make the cut because we couldn't convince each other enough 'beyond a reasonable doubt'

Are the myths cheap and high quality?

 

Absolutely! I guarantee it!.

 

Paperback is $12, PDF is $5.99

 

Hehe, there's no way you can properly utilize him over the long term. His short to medium range mechanics are horrendous and at some point you have to be able to throw the ball short to maintain possession.

 

Lol..fair point though. Howeverrrrrrrrrrr…. He has proved that he could

It's not that The Golden Calf of Bristol can't play quarterback, he's just not very good at a lot of its core responsibilities.

 

"Not very good" or "Not used properly?" That's the crux of my position

 

Hmm looks interesting. I might look into it.

 

I love your work btw keep it up!

 

Thanks Wake! Trust me, you won't be disappointed

I think he meant a couple of years down the road, to see how the picks worked out and who was right.  Revisiting them later this summer is meaningless. 

 

And that's what I was talking about as well..

He selected an WR, OG, and a RB.

 

What did you want?  Another TE?  A center?

 

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh... now I understand.

 

An OT.

 

So, like I said, you didn't like it because in your closed little box of a world, you draft only for "need".

 

That's what I said in the first place.

 

Actually, I would've preferred another WR instead of a RB. Do you think RB & OG was more of a need than OT & 2 WRs? And my 'little closed box of a world' I actually think Kugbila could be what you needed at guard more so than spending a 3rd on Turner. 'My little closed box of a world' would allow me to at least give the guy that was drafted last year in the 4th round a chance to prove it on the field…but I guess that's just small time thinking. 

 

 

How did we get a C+ when our 1st, 2nd and 3rd rounders were ranked by you guys overall at 142, 124 and "off the board"????  I'd respect this piece a little more if you just came out and gave it the D- it deserves based on your rankings.

 

I grade your gameday analysis at an "A" level.  But after looking at your draft board rankings you seem to swing to extremes.  So, C+'s all around!

 

Because you can't control what happens on draft day and just because I would've 'preferred' other targets than Benjamin, like I mentioned in the piece, I can't be upset if he was 'their guy' and they wanted him. Also, it would be unfair to grade a team based of 'my rankings' as opposed to the player they drafted & how he'll fit. My grades are talent based and my personal opinion on the prospects. Sure some guys are 'reaches' so to speak but that's not reflected in how I evaluate the team's draft. So even if I had Benjamin as my 16th best receiver…I know that teams had him in their Top 10; For grading purposes, I have to look at it more from a 'how the player's talents fit' perspective.
