Defensive line...A+
Linebackers......A+
Def. Backs.........A+

Do I really believe these grades...no.
Do they mean anythng to anyone else...no
Do I have a link to back them up......no
Am I impressing anyone...well, you figure that one out.

Just letters I decided to put down there...nothing more.
Thanks for the input. That\'s REAL helpful to this discussion. When would it be approriate to post my opinions on this forum? They do mean something to others because they\'ve been posting their opinions too. I also have a link, it\'s...

I know the moderators can\'t be on everything right away. But where the heck are the moderators?

We have a bunch of moderators now and I see none of them doing anything.

I know JoeSam would step in if he were here. But I never see the other mods doing too much. Not saying they have to do anything. Just curious.

There are plenty of \"belittling\" posts going on tonight.

Opinions are one thing. Talking down to someone is another.

This Saint_LB guy needs to tighten up.

It is most appropriate to post your opinion at any time, just as I have an opinion on what you just posted. It is only my opinion, and I don\'t really care if it is not shared by the rest of the forum or not. When you start giving people grades, it makes me think that you got the idea because you just got your report card, or something.

Also, I don\'t feel the need to call out people for not responding to my thread.

The knock against McKenzie in GB is that he is a fine cover guy but he doesn\'t tackle well in the open field and he is not too tough against the run. Perhaps some one who was able to see more games than I could say something about that.
I\'ve read numerous reports exactly opposite of that. He\'s a great tackler, and extremely good versus the run.
The only knock I read is that he takes too many gambles and will get beat (tricked) occasionally.

Many think his gambles pay off far more often than not.

That\'s what I\'ve read also. More importantly, that\'s what I\'ve seen on the field.

I must admit, I was wrong about McKenzie. He was everything some said he was and more. And I wasn\'t a fan of his at all. I am now!!

Well, when you make grumpy comments like that, it makes me think your social security check must have been short this month.

Your need to call people out for not responding to your defense thread instead of the AB threads makes me think that something else of yours must be short. :P

I wasn\'t calling people out to respond to this thread specifically, although I referred to it. The D thread was just an example of one that is sometimes ignored in favor of 4 or 5 other AB threads.
