My issue is not with the Hernandez pick....I do get frustrated that Belichick tends to think he is the smartest guy in the room and do his "value picking" - it's more the pattern of the value picks that bother me...brushing off other people's concerns and assuming that he knows more than they do about extracting value. Gronk/Hernandez are currently exhibit A for that.
sometimes you have to go top dollar, don't trade down, that's it. Would like to see him mix it up a bit. But every team has to roll the dice sometimes.
But that said it's his style and he deserves credit for the successes he has had with his style also.
My only beef is elevating Belichick to the best drafter in the game. He's been good, very good, sometimes great.
He's not the unquestioned best in the game at it though. That's all.
I'm not into moralizing about the NFL so I never had that problem with AH, therefore I don't have a hypocrisy issue to deal with here.
What I do have an issue with is if AH came to Bill for help and didn't get it. But - that story has not be sufficiently verified to my satisfaction. I would like to think BB would have done more if he had known more.
Actually I see it as the opposite. BB DID help Hernandez by drafting him(where would hernandez have gone if he went undrafted? probably full gangster mode) so in light of TFB posting about Jim Brown and him saying how BB visited the jails and mentored kids and talked to gang members, do we really believe BB didnt know Aaron was one? I dont think BB is that naive. its why he was so contrite and sympathetic when he finally spoke. I think BB was hoping Aaron would take his chance and run with it and when it didnt, BB felt dissapointed like a father. I believe he rolled the dice. He knew he had trouble after his father died and maybe thought bringing him here and mentoring him would change his life(while also being a beast on the field) lets not forget the real reason he was drafted but yea. Why was BB telling him to get a safe house if he didnt know anything?
Oh, I agree. I think there was some of that sympathy element and that he could be groomed a bit, which for a while he was.
It appeared that he started to go off the rails in the summer of 2012, after playing in a SB and his agent talking new deal with the Pats.
With your last sentence, you really believe BB casually suggested for him to "get a safe house"?
Please tell me you aren't THAT stupid, Shizzles.
I just want to know why the 49ers took a risk with Aldon Smith when they were clearly red flags with him on his dossier in draft. Can you answer why other teams' aren't verballuy accosted in the press like BB was?
What line did you use earlier?? Im just a messenger? Yea, I never made this up and dont know if its true. Ive heard it several times though and if you say havent, you are a liar, but what else is new. I dont make things up. Im just saying that the media reported HERE LOCALLY! You know the same media that you find articles from daily to support your agenda?
So you can beleive that BB wanted to help him but cant believe he would suggest him getting a safe house?? WHat do think that is?? I would call that Helping , no? Wow...you are the dumbest person with a 152 I.Q. ever in history!
Look at you! you are being owned left and right. You posted an article today and lied about what it said. YOu are over here desperately trying to find as many articles possible on some guy who doesnt even play here JUST to delfect from the AH thing....WHY??? Its not a bad reflection on you. Why do you feel the need to defend BB. Was he a child sponser or something for you back in the day.??? Defending some of BB's GM moves will have you fighting daily, but you do that anyways...Wow...what a life you have....(sarcasm)
