Well for the expectations on this board that BB should be hitting on All-Pro players with every pick, yes, the pick wasn't up to snuff.
But if you're living in reality, he was a good player for them on the field and worth the Rd 2 selection. He was a quality, starting caliber NFL inside backer that was at the top level player vs. the run and brought a physical edge/toughness to the position.
But hey, keep living in f/riggin fantasy land.
As always, a very insightful post mb. It seems that this board these days is made up of the same few guys trolling. Telling all who will listen how bad this team is and how much BB sucks, but it's nice to jump on and read thoughts from pats fans, and pats fans who are also fans of football.
I read somehwere that Spikes had the highest rating against the run this year for all inside LBers. Considering that is what he was drafted for I would say he was a pretty damn good contributor, especially considering that we are usually one of the better run defenses in the game, until we lost our co captains on D this year.
There you both go - injecting that inconvenient, uncomfortable reality check into the discussion. If BB ain't battin' a thousand in the draft he's an incompetent bumblef**k - didn't you know?
Don't worry, one of the crew will be on here soon to label us as homers, and idiots. It is a typical last ditch resort to attempt to tear down ones credibility when losing a debate.
