In response to ATJ's comment:
Oh boy - another thread by the same poster about what an abysmal judge BB is of DB prospects. I do hope this one goes on for 28 pages as well. It really elevates the quality of discourse in this forum. A word of caution however: you may run the risk of damaging that drum when that's the only one you beat, post after post after post.
Are you saying I'm wrong? Are you defending 1/13 on DBs in the first 3 rounds?
That "drum" gets stronger for every repeat whiff.
BTW, I couldn't find any topics you've inititated on this forum. Only thing I see from you are butthurt replies whenever anyone questions BB.
Actually my original post here in this thread was a bit snarky so I suppose I should expect a little push back. Fair enough. What I probably should have posted here was something along the lines of the following question: Since you've already made this point in a thread that is now in the vicinity of 20 pages long and is still an active discussion, I'm not entirely sure why you wish to initiate a thread on what is essentially the same subject? I get the point (and I suspect others do as well): you view Belichick as a pretty poor judge of the DB talent. Got it.
With respect to your pot shot, you're correct, I don't initiate a good many threads on this board. I do so, from time to time, when I see a point worth making or a source worth citing that others have not made or made reference to. Not entirely sure what a butthurt reply is but I'll take your word for it that that is how you view my posts. Not a matter of consequence from my perspective. Moreover, I truly don't see a need to repeat points made by others. pcmIV and tanbass pretty much sum it up on this thead with respect to the DB situation. pcmIV in particular made some pretty compelling arguments that have yet to be refuted in your other thread on the matter. Quite frankly, I don't believe that mere repetition equates to credibility.
With respect to my view of Bill Belichick, it's no secret that I think highly of him as a coach and a GM. He's not exactly a media darling but I suspect that's not a big deal with Robert Kraft. What I do try to do is view BB's body of work in context. All in all, he's done a phenomenal job with the Pats. Not perfect, no one is. Some, most particularly Babe, view this as almost exclusively due to the presence of Tom Brady. Brady's great, no question. I don't beieve, however, that even a great QB can win surrounded by mediocre talent.
So, CubanPete, by all means post whatever you wish - I, for one, believe that you're entitled to your views. Mine are different from yours and, with all due respect, I'll continue to offer them.
