NFL Draft 2011
For the last five years, the blog has served as an archive for both hilariously innaccurate and incredibly accurate player assessments. Steve, the Bub and Condy all have paragraphs of predictions that they ought to include on a resume sent to ESPN. Obviously there's plenty of documentation on why several bloggers (Steve, the Bub) thought Clay Matthews was going to be great. But we've all read that many times after the fact. I've highlighted a few notable and funny comments below. By way of who's the blog's best oracle, I'm putting my money on the Bub Father. Seriously.
"Great story on My Man Mario on Yahoo! today. The man is going to be a disgusting NFL player. Everybody is saying that he's by far the best defensive prospect in the draft." Bub in 2006.
"I'm a bit concerned about how injury prone all these guys seem to be" Condy in 2007 regarding Justin Harrell.
"Jordy had something like 120 catches and had 260 return yards on 5 returns. He was obviously picked to make the special teams extra special." Steve 2008
"The other player I'll talk about individually is Brian Brohm. I was higher on this guy than any other quarterback in the draft" Bub 2008. (Matt Ryan, Joe Flacco and Matt Flynn were in this draft).
"Bubba Franks is gone, so he finds a TE who is really athletic, knowing how Franks couldn't separate any longer. This guy can't block (yet), but sure can run, jump and catch passes." Bub Father on Jermike 2008
"Our offensive tackles are getting a little old and Barbre is a tackle we were forced to play at Guard when Coston and others were hurt. By grabbing Sitton and that wop from Louisville, we added nice depth."
Bub Father in 2008 (Sitton is arguably the best guard in football)
"Alright ya'll, I'm about to fuck you up with some truth. Matthews is horse shit."
Condy in 2009
"Underwood was too undisciplined to stay at Ohio State?! Crack open the fucking bottle and let's toast!"
Condy in 2009 (Bub and I agree this is the best one, Underwood had a great preseason on and off the field, so I still am optimistic about him).
"I think the Packers will expect Burnett, as well as Bulaga and Neal, to contribute significantly in their rookie seasons."
Condy in 2010
Get on record starting tonight!
