2011 NFL Draft

For all non-Boston, non-gambling sports chatter

Postby SC » Thu Nov 11, 2010 2:57 pm

I was watching some of the Clemson game vs. NC State last week (flipping during maryland-miami) and Da'quan Bowers is really good. He just kept on making plays.

I've enjoyed Andrew Luck this year, as well, but there's something about him that doesn't inspire confidence about being a #1 pick. Sort of like Alex Smith. I mean, Pac 10 defenses are pretty swiss cheese.

I had this argument already way back in the spring.

Show me a national title contender that didn't have alot of qulaity NFL talent.

Bama-Texas
Florida-Oklahoma
LSU-Ohio State
Florida-OSU
USC-Oklahoma
OSU-Miami
Miami-Nebraska

I can keep going but FSU, Oklahoma, Va. Tech and Tenn pop up in the next three. Safe assumption there was some NFL talent on those teams.

I want to see LaMichael James a future NFL tailback in the open field against Patrick Peterson rather than the guy pumping gas 5 years from now in Minnesota waiting for the Hartford Generals to give him a UFL tryout.

So not appearing on a November mock 1st round list = no NFL talent.....right? If you're not on McShays November mock, you're pumping gas in Vernon?

So you're smug comment was about no BSU or TCU guys on the first rd mock....

Now are you saying that there are no NFL quality players on their rosters at all?

Tell me which stupid fucking point you are trying to make....then we'll deal with it.....

Or better yet, don't. Just shut up.

angry today huh?

I said I didn't think there were any guys close to the first round after your comment about a FIRST round mock draft in November. Thats how we got here.

We can keep going if youd like

Im still waiting for a response on my question about the NFL talent im missing.

Young, Carder, Pettis, do those guys last more than 3 years in the NFL?

So you're sticking with the argument that you aren't a contender unless McShay thinks you have a 1st rounder. In November.

Right?

My argument is that to be a title contender you should have guys that NFL scouts want and think highly of.

Ask Oklahoma how that went last year. They had 3 of the first 4 picks and 4 1st rounders. By the end of the season they weren't even in the top 25

Oregon is fucked. McShay doesn't see any 1st round talent on that team. Do you think the NFL would agree to hold the draft in December, that way we could have a title game AFTER seeing who really deserves to be there?

Under this nonsense theory, miami should be in the championship every year. Who cares how many #1s they have. Being well coached and playing solid football might mean something. In the immortal words of Tyson, if you don't like it change you're f' ing station

I can address all three points

1. Ronnie, Bradford didn't play last year try and keep up.

2. LaMichael James when he declares will be picked high.

3. Miamis not back, but when they were check out where they ended up at the end of the year. see 2002 and 2003 title games.

Im not saying that having NFL talent automatically puts you in the title game which you guys can't seem to get past. Im saying that to be in the title game, you need real NFL talent.

Good to know that when you aren't bringing down CT HS football programs, you are scouting all of college football to determine who is NFL caliber talent.
