In response to ATJ's comment:
As soon as I saw the name Easley I expected exactly what I found when I logged on this morniing. It is the inevitable, unrelenting 'BB can't draft to save his a_$$' mantra. Thing is, I seem to recall a lot of the same internet GMs applauding Lombardi's affiliation with the team as the fix for BB's 'deplorable' drafting.
OK, if the pick sux soooooooo bad where the he11 was our lord and savior Lombardi when the pick was made?
Vent away - it's what the board is all about but try a little consistency once in a while.
And of course I'm a hopeless homer - but at least I'm consistent about it.
I've told you, dude. They're frauds. They also mocked Lombardi for being fired after a tremendous job in just 1 year there. The millisecond BB put him here on the payroll, they then claimed he was great and would tell BB what to do.
The fact is, Lombardi has had the same job since 2010 for BB and the Pats. That's a fact. It's just that he's officially paid now for it.
Every year these same dorky morons claim they know more than BB and the scouts. Every single year. It wouldn't matter who BB picked. These fans like it when wind tunnel tested mop head Kipie runs around ESPN talking about how great BB's pick or picks are, but Mel Kiper is a moron.
BB picks players who fit the mold for what he wants, projecting UP, not staying the same from the NCAA level, but just playing in the NFL now. Most of the time, he's right on with that.
You're not a homer. You're a reasonable, rational adult who is educated and gets it. Very, very few people remain here who are like that.
