Just read an interesting article over on yahoo....( yeah I know, not the pre-eminent sports authority). It recalls the top ten draft picks from 2009 (which included DHB). And it just goes to show that there are no "cant miss" prospects.(not that DHB was)
Basically, Fans must be patient and willing to trust in the management of a team for a period of time before they say "WTF!" or, declare said management stupid/genius.(unless they draft a punter in the 1st round)
This is a pre-emptive response to everyone that is not satisfied/ or those who are elated with whomever grigson and Co. end up coming away with after the draft.
All the whiney babies will be out in full form bitching: "OMG Grigson sucks!!! he didnt draft Teo/Mingo/vaccaro/ fluker/trufant/allen/moore/jones/etc./etc.".............last years 3rd round pick comes to mind...all the WTF!!!! (including the editor here)...but which turned out to be pretty OK. and even "luck sucks, should've drafted Griffin"... While most top ten picks ( of which many were "can't miss" pre-draft, turned out to suck. in 2009....)
here is the link.
hopefully the link paste works, havent done it before
So, instead of phrasing it as "being mindless drones of management/team" if you don't question things...... I say either be "FANS" and be optimistic that "OUR" guys are going to rule/kick ass.... or go become an "analyst" or blogger or some other armchair quarterback type, and be bitter like Mel Kiper because "they didn't pick your guy"( can anyone say trent dilfer?? or how about ricky williams...)
.. whichever it is, PLEASE dont spend 4 weeks filling up every article's comment section with WHAAA-WHAAA, BOO-HOO.....( like some of you have done during/after the free agent period)
