Rashawn Slater named 2nd team All-Pro at LT

Very true, but it was completely unnecessary to say in that interview. It was essentially doubling down on their initial (wrong) assessment of his skillset, which not only makes him look bad, it makes the scouting look incompetent. "Didn't want to draft a guard that high" Implies they would have played him out of position had they actually drafted him instead of sticking him at LT where he has shown out. It basically says what they did to BC this season, they would have done to Slater too, and that just makes them look foolish.

He could have avoided the ire by saying, "Slater is a great player too, he was on our board but we just had Jaycee Higher."

That's it. that's all he had to say. 

Yeah the thing is everyone makes mistakes in the draft.  But not everyone tries to make it sound like they actually weren't wrong etc.  It's okay to like one player over another but you don't need to come off like an idiot in saying that.  Horn may very well be a better pick long-term. That will never justify rhules comments lol

But would he have been as good with the Panthers? Maybe they would have played him at LG instead of his ideal location. Or maybe they would have played Slater in a different position every week. Brady was played in 4-different positions this year. Nobody could be successful like that. 
I still think one of the reasons (certainly not the only) the Oline was bad was due to a bad scheme. A bad scheme makes even the best players look bad. The entire offense was terrible and out of sink.

Right but everything you're saying is no different from "Rhule is fuging incompetent" which is true of the explanation he gave as well as the personnel choices he makes on the field.

Horn may very well be a better player and a better fit, but he had to go stuff his foot in his mouth anyway. He just comes off as having no clue what he's doing or saying often lately.
