There's a statement that circling the Internet is slowly, but surely, beginning to piss me off:
Their post-draft analysis, however, stinks!
Scott Wright, the President of NFL Draft Countdown, wrote the post-draft analysis personally. Actually, he writes all the analysis for all the teams. I guess the president of the company is the only one actually working there! Currently, he's about halfway through all 32 teams. Scott gave the Colts a "C" grade for their draft selections, the lowest grade thus far. Why "C" for Colts?
I've given up expecting quality post-draft analysis from sites like ESPN.com and NFL Draft Countdown. The only pleasure I can take is the joy I feel when I take their opinions and bash them into pulp.
Look Scott, you don't have to like the Colts draft. You can, of course, disagree and say Indy should have taken this player over that player. However, if you are going to question the decisions of one of the best evaluators of talent in the NFL, I expect you to at least KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT, especially when it pertains to a specific team.
If Joseph Addai was such a "reach," why the glowing review of him on your site, Scott?
Folks, this is a classic example of a pundidiot who is upset that the team he's evaluating did not see the draft the way he did. Scott ranked White and Drew ahead of Addai on his draft chart. Heck, he ranked White ahead of Maroney!
And regarding Keiaho: if you think the Colts drafted Freddie Keiaho to replace David Thornton this year, you are simply ignorant of how the Colts do business. Keiaho will play special teams this year, and most likley backup Cato June. They will apprentice him and groom him to eventually replace one of the starting linebackers one day IF he shows promise. Gilbert Gardner had this role for two seasons. Now, with Thornton's departure, he will be the starting strong side backer. All Scott had to do to know this kind of information was to simply go to the Colts website and read about it.
Is it so much to ask that these pundit fools actually KNOW what they are talking about BEFORE they grade a team's draft? Is it too much to expect that the President of NFL Draft Countdown to know his business before posting a draft grade?
And cut out the "Colts were hit hardest by free agency" crap already! I listed New England, but Denver was also gutted by free agency, losing their best d-lineman (Trevor Pryce), their starting runningback (Mike Anderson), and their tight end (Jeb Putzier). Honestly!
