So Bill catches hell for bad draft choices but gets no credit for the positive ones...
Got it... don't you see how silly this is?
Belichick could have passed on Brady, could have waited for him to go undrafted (and he would have), BB has a say in all football related decisions, he chose Brady. Period. Taking away all of Belichicks best draft picks just because you don't like him makes you look foolish.
History will record that Bill Belichick drafted Tom Brady, all your self hatred (assuming you're actually a Pat's fan and not some plant by BDC to increase posts) will not change that.
As I have REPEATEDLY stated; I don't credit or discredit picks after the 4th round.
If you get something there, great; if you don't, I'm not going to slam that.
It is how depth is built on a 53 man roster. It is a very important part of team building and takes just as much draft prep as any other round.
Right, the last 125 players chosen are nearly as important as the first 125 players chosen, and an equal amount of resources are expended to research those picks. Makes perfect sense. That's because the bottom 20 spots on a roster make such a big difference to the eventual fate of a team, right? Thank you for your astute football observation.
(And people wonder why I so liberally used the S-word in the past.)
Right, because when injuries happen and teams don't have the quality depth to to use as replacements it doesn't matter. If you want to have a discussion about the topic fine. If you are just going to be a d*ck then just don't respond. You are suppossedly 60+ years old stop acting like your 12.
