Re: 1st Round Pick Draft Suckage

Why has nobody pointed out the unfortunate typo where I referred to Kenny Vaccaro as a 'Daft Pick'

Haha! Because some of us thought he was.

I'm disturbingly sold on him with nothing to back it up at the pro level. Ugh. Really hope he can be that good! I'm sure he will be

I'm totally out of control. I'm seeing Ed Reed and Troy Polamalu all rolled into one.
I see both of them also.. Its subliminal, hidden with in his tattoos..

3 years from now we can resurrect the threads where people called the pick bad.

But anyone who saw him in 2011 when we were still running GWs man coverage saw him grab 7.5 sacks.

Funny; we're going back to a very similar system... And now with Vaccaro in the mix; there will be times that all 3 safeties are on the field at the same time and Harper will most likely be blitzing at will

Re: 1st Round Pick Draft Suckage

And the debate can re-ignite about moving Harper to OLB ... Could he do a role there? He did it from Safety on the blitz and he sucks in pass coverage so with a couple of men going down this is a very viable offering

"et tu Brute"?!? Thought we could count on you for a little cynicism and temperance in expectations of the rookie...
