Yeah - Bruce - let's keep Pack, here, happy with his need to abuse honesty... move this over to the SMACK forum and I'll insert appropriate retort for the John Kerry Koolaid drinkers to read.P@ck66 said:Bruce, this is not a political forum. Please post the the REPUBLICAN NATIONAL AGENDA in the proper forum, the Smack area...
Nope. Another informative post Bruce. In my case I've been too busy on the golf course the last couple of days that I'm still trying to catch up on my reading all the posts.
musccy said:There were some rumblings in the LOCAL media LATE in train camp 3 yrs. ago that Driver MIGHT be a diamond in the rough. His success that yr. was even a bit of a surprise to the local media that were at practice everyday...so how is a Len Pasquerelli supposed to know if Cullen Jenkins, or Brady Popenga, or whomever is supposed to take off when he's responsible for covering 31 other teams? There are about 20 of those types of guys (players w/ potential) on every team, and again, the Len Pasquerellis can't spend 5 hours / day at all 32 team's practices.
So, the national media is almost forced to base their opinions on the **** pick ups...and be honest, you would too. What grabs your attention more...The Bears adding Lovie Smith to head Coach, and the Vikes adding some first rounders and former pro bowlers....or....the Seahawks adding Mr. X too Offensive coordinator, and the Rams adding getting some dbs in the 3-6th round?!? The Packers were the latter this offseason...not that that's bad...it just won't grab the headlines.
Couldn't agree more...speaking specifically about preseason predictions, the Sean Salisburys et al have as much of a chance of picking correctly as anyone else on this board. MAYBE they have a few more insider tips than we do, but that's all a wash when you can't predict the Drew Brees and Antonio Gates popping up, Ricky Williams retiring, random injuries, teams simply underperforming, etc.The problem comes in when people start accepting these guys as experts and what they write the "truth."
