In response to TexasPat's comment:
RESPONSE: Since when have you dismantled anybody's opinion? The only thing you ever dismantled is perhaps a set of blocks! If those players suck as you claim, why were they signed to huge free agent contracts by other teams? Why don't you run along, and go play with your Madden 2013?
Kruger is the only player listed who signed anything remotely close to a "huge" contract. And you'll notice my comment was that his first 3 years were nothing special so the Ravens essentially got one good year out of him. Had he been picked by BB I guarantee the BB the GM hater goon squad would be out in force lambasting the pick. Tavares Gooden is playing for 700k this year. Antwan Barnes is playing for a bit over 1 million. Dickson and Smith are still under their rookie contracts. So much for those "huge" contracts. Just in case you were wondering Chung and Meriweather (the big bad BB busts) signed larger contracts after being released from NE than Barnes or Gooden. Why don't you try acquainting yourself with some facts?
RESPONSE: Barnes had 11 sacks for the Chargers in 2011, and signed a 3 year deal with the Jets: http://espn.go.com/new-york/nfl/story/_/id/9066619/antwan-barnes-new-york-jets-deal But he sucks, right? Compare and contrast his him Pats' 2nd round flop Jermaine Cunningham. Who is by far the better player? Couldn't help but notice how you omitted the huge contract given to OG Grubbs to leave the Ravens? Try 5 years, $36mil., clown: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2012/football/nfl/03/15/ben.grubbs.saints.ap/index.html
Where did I say that Dickson and Smith were signed big free agent deals, Einstein? If you want to talk more about huge contracts, what did the Ravens have to shell out to keep Joe Flacco, Haloti Ngata, and Ray Rice?
What group of players have the Patriots drafted since 2006 that can compare with the Ravens' haul of Ngata, Flacco, Rice, Torrey Smith, Marshal Yanda, and Ben Grubbs??
RESPONSE: I still see no serious debate...just your own warped opinion.
That is because you are too busy drinking your "objective" koolaid. You are not objective on this issue. You are no better than the "homers" you criticize. Being a contrarian doesn't make you objective.
RESPONSE: You're choking on your homer koolaid, son. Can't wait for you to list the Patriot players selected from 2006-present that top what the Ravens have done.
RESPONSE: Talk about straw man, who said that BB sucks? The guy is great at everything football, except selecting the right guys in the draft. He appears to have too much on his plate...is cutting corners on evaluating players by placing huge amounts of trust in certain college programs...and now is disregarding his own scouts. Even Mike Reiss has suggested that a change in the player selection process needs to be made. But...go right ahead being homeric, homer!! LOL!!!
RESPONSE: Spare you?? Sorry, I can't save you from repeatedly making a homeric fool out of yourself.
You've said in multiple threads that BB is a poor GM fired on another team as GM.
RESPONSE: Hogwash! I've said on multiple threads that he has done a poor job of selecting players in the draft...period. I also said that if a GM on a rival team had drafted as poorly as BB, he would have been fired by now.
This thread is about BB the GM. Clearly you think he sucks as a GM which was my point.
RESPONSE: That is NOT what this thread is about. I've been clear to those who don't have clear comprehension issues caused by overdosing on homeric koolaide, that BB has done a poor job of selecting players in the draft. I've also been clear about him being the greatest coach of all-time, and have been crystal clear in pointing out that he evaluates veteran talent well, and generally makes good trades...especially stockpiling draft picks. The sole problem lies in his awful draft selections. DO YOU N UNDERSTAND...you drunk on koolaid homer! LOL!!!
And you still haven't responded to the point that even if you definitvely proved BB is inferior to Newsome (which you haven't)
RESPONSE: Please!!! Reasonable minds (unlike yours), would take issue with you here...LOL!!
that doesn't make him a bottom tier GM. Is Matt Ryan a bottom tier QB because he isn't as good as Brady or Rodgers? Of course not. That is 12 year old logic.
RESPONSE: AGAIN...my sole criticism of BB lies in the awful draft selections he's made, since 2006. Though I agree with his philosophy of stockpiling top 100 picks, he has squandered the great majority of them. But...go on and defend him, and ignore the facts if you so choose. I'm sick and tired of going over this, time and again...with the likes of brain dead homers like yourself.
