What went wrong?




The draft is over and….damn

Thursday night after the Floyd (next Alan Page?{don’t mean to blasphemy}) and the X-man picks I was on such a high. Loving RS. Then…Fast Pat for our third, first fourth and last seventh? Arrrggghhhh. This guy is the quintessential high upside/potential pick that never pans out. RS said he expects him to be better than Pee wHee at kick/punt returns. HA! I want to find someone that would make that bet on per return results for the 2013 season. I will give them 2 to 1 odds and bet the price of a new 1 ton pick up. And as far as FastPat’s WR potential? Good luck.

Look at Arif’s review of him vs. what we could have had at 52. Hopkins was gone of course (but then who expected Floyd to fall to us at 23?), but we could have had Dobson, K. Allen or M. Wheaton. All three of which project as better for us than FastPat (Arif’s scouting reports; I agree) And….we would have had for our third round choices, DE C. Lemonier, OT Barrett Jones, OLB K. Greene, etc, etc, and our first 4th? Hey why not take a guy with better route running, catch radius, and HANDS ? yeah I mean Da’Rick Rogers. I am just thoroughly disappointed once again. Floyd may be the next Alan Page and another tall long DB are great, absolutely great, but other than that we got hopefuls with Hodges and Mauti and a probably a can’t go wrong with Locke.

So in review that gives us two definite starters for years to come (that is what should be expected from 1st and 2nd round picks) and….a punter. That ain’t good.

This draft went from great to fugging average in a heartbeat.

On the bright side our counterparts in the NFC north don’t look any smarter than us.
