Hey maybe you dont have a football intellect, but that doesnt mean I dont. And as for the scouts, well they miss pro-bowlers every year. Welker, Bracket, Nick Harper, Antonio Pierce, Adewale Ogunleye, London Fletcher, Pat Williams, Adam Vinatieri, Bart Scott, Jeff Saturday, James Harrison, Rod Smith, Jason Peters, Jon Randle, Warren Moon, and some guy named Curt or Kurt Warner LOL. Scouts and GM's are wrong everyday/every year, and every draft. And maybe you didnt think anything of Edelman, Collie, or Garcon, but I thought all 3 would be perfect fits for their teams systems and QB's. One other guy you mentioned was J-Russell, I couldnt find one person with an ounce of football intelligence that thought he would amount to a functional person nevermind a real QB. He deserves a gold start for tying his shoes and moving on from the velcro kicks. Seriously though, I was dead on about him, he had a good last month in college, thats it. His physical gifts and the last month of his last year are the only reasons he was drafted. Ive been a physical therapist for almost 8 years now and try to be best I can by learning as much as I can from as many different people/sources etc as possible. Besides my job/career and G/F, sports and politics play a huge role in my life, so Im constantly trying to learn as much a possible. Always trying to read up on different defense/offense, different styles of coaching/philosophy etc. So in other words..I have no life and although I hate religion I look up at the sky everyday and thank someone/anything that such a beautiful girl would actually stay with an ugly fu#k such as myself. Sorry if I was harsh, but it really bothers me when people pull the hindsight card. Its not monday morning QB'in when Im screaming at Fatty Little to pull Pety the first time he walked his cupcake azz out to the mound. I mean they started killing the ball the past two innings and...sorry that still bothers me(doesnt take much LOL LOL). I thought Maroney was a terrible pick then and still do, everyone from Minnesota was thought the same thing. You could tell from watching their games that Phoney Maroney loved running over smaller college kids, but M-Barber just loved running over everything. Two years ago I was kicking the TV when the PATS ddint grab J-Charles, and last year when we could have had Matthews and/or Maualuga/Laurinaitis, I wanted Laurinaitis. Hey Ive been dead wrong many times as well, I thought Joey Harrington was going to be a great QB, never got enough time LOL! This Tebow BS has really got to me though, Im so sick n tired of people(morons) talking about his character and how good a person he is. I really dont care how nice players are, their character doesnt concern me at all. And Im sorry, but I think your a moron if you would/wouldnt draft someone because hes a nice guy. None of us will ever know anything about the real Brady, Seymor, or any other player. Just because they have some charity/foundation doesnt mean their a nice guy, they could be just doing it for the tax write-off or maybe they are good people. Point is we'll never know and I want my receiver to put 6 on the board more than anything. None of us are going to share a ceaser-wrap and Dr Pepper with Wilfork. As long as he occupys two, sometimes three o-line and stops the back from getting to the second level then were good. Tebow couldnt cook me breakfast, nevermind be an actual NFL QB. He sux under center, and has no speed, hes not running past or over anyone. Accuracy and his delivery are the biggest problem and are seldom fixed. Hes been throwing the same way for 15-17 years, it'll take 4-5 years to remake him into a viable QB and IMHO you cant teach accuracy. You either have that or you dont, I guess god doesnt think you need to be an accurate QB. His football awareness and presence are no where near NFL ready, along with his footwork. He reminds me of a bigger, slower version of Matt Cassell. Tebow isnt out-running David Harris and Calvin Pace and isnt running over James Harrison and Ray Lewis. And just like Cassell he cant hit air past 15 yards and is allergic to the deep ball. There are so many needs on this team, there isnt one position besides QB that you can say were good at. Oline/Dline , RB's, Rec's, Tight end, ILB/OLB, and the whole secondary are in need of major upgrades. If hes there in the 5-6 round then maybe, but just for trade bait. I wouldnt let him cut our grass, nevermind play on it. He couldnt cut it in college as a legitimate QB, think about it, how long did he have to develop and prove he has potential at that position? How many plays can you recall that he made with his arm, how many times did he read and diagnose a defense and made them pay with his arm and QB intellect. Seriously, hes on the 2-3 yard line and instead of dropping back, surveying the field, and trying to find a matchup he likes, he makes a fu*king jump pass like hes Ray fu%king Allen. A jump pass! Let someone else spend millions and waste years making him into a poor mans Matt Cassell!
