    You're right of course.  But to be a member of the HH-elite it is essential that you meet the listed criteria.  I've laminted my membership card to ensure continued legibility. 

     



    TP got really upset with me and cut my card up!!

    You guys should be ashamed of yourselves ganging up on poor TP like that. Wilson and Harmon were reaches. Even if they become hall of famers, we could have gotten them later, thereby passing on other sure hall of famers.

    Harmon's a reach because BB took him at a point where some posters on this board believe was too high.  OK, they're entitled to their opinion and they've not been at all reluctant to express it.  And I'm not at all reluctant to express mine, HH that I am.  I really couldn't care less how the Mel Kiper's of the world evaluate this guy nor where Joe Schmucatelli's freeze-dried overnight can't fail draft evaluation blog has him going nor whether or not BB was in lock step with his scouting department.  The guy was taken at the bottom of the 3rd round for crying out loud - this is a pick over which Pats fans should open a vein?  Efriggingad. 



         Homers like yourself keep trying to paint the picture that because Mel Kiper thought Harmon at #91 was a huge reach...that anyone who criticizes BB for making this choice is doing so, only because Kiper said it was a bad pick. The truth of the matter is that BB's own scouts strongly advised BB not to select Harmon at #91...that they thought that he could be had in round 7, or as an undrafted FA. But...BB took Harmon anyway, despite this!!  

         So...let's try setting aside our BB homer bias, shall we?

    And trolls like yourself like to keep painting the picture that because you thought Tavon Wilson was a bad pick that he has been a bust thus far despite the fact that numerous other players picked after him in the 2nd round contributed much less to their teams last season.  Now you are doing the same thing with Harmon despite the fact that he hasn't played a down.  Heck you admitted that you don't care if he turns out to be a good player which is insane.  Who the hell cares about "reaches" and "steals" if the guy becomes a good player? Why don't you try setting aside your BB whiner bias?

    Why, when the only reason Harmon was rated so poorly was because he wasn't at the combine and the only reason you think BB overruled his scouts is because some two bit blogger made the story up?

    I'll simply say you've either missed the point of every post I've put up on this subject or are intentionally avoiding mentioning it - my point?  Belichick knows more about evaluating talent than do you, TP.  That doesn't make me a homer (although I really don't care if you call me a cumquat); what that makes me is someone who respects the opinion of a proven professional over that of an interested amateur.  Shocking I know.

     


    And please; don't claim your opinion on Harmon was in part based on Belichick not being in lock step with his scouting department on him.  You labeled the pick as 'absurd' before the scouting department/BB disagreement appeared on this board. 

    How many posts do you need to see about how well Wilson has done relative to those chosen after him to recognize that your chronic hissy fit over this pick may have been premature?

    Finally, there is a mounting body of evidence in your posts that you would much rather be proven right than have a draft pick you don't like succeed.  Not sure what to call that but it sure isn't the attitude of a Pats fan.

    TexasJet is the worst, most ignorant person on this board. The ignburr feature is a beautiful thing for this clown. End of discussion.
