You do look pretty mean in your avatar pic, so I may still draft you, even if you have off-field problems. I like a guy with a mean streak and some heart. But not before the second day.

EDIT: I heard that you once ate a guy\'s liver because he took your parking space. That should go a long way toward intimidating opposing players, even if you\'re likely to be a locker room cancer.

I\'d rather have charlie frye, walter, or the QB from harvard-all seem to be better players with much less character issues.

One of my all time favorite quotes regarding my avatar, by whowatches, one of the many that no longer posts here that I do miss.

... and if Baby Jesus cries, Darren will have to make you eat one of the walnuts he\'s crushing with his butt-cheeks.

Mmmm... salty.
Makes me laugh to this day. I miss you ww.

Frye has been my pick since day one (do a search if you like). The problems that McPherson had at Florida St. are insignificant, and could hardly be referenced to as \"character issues\". What I know of him, he has worked his ass off to get where he is right now, and he looks pretty damn good.
Fitzpatrick is the guy you\'re thinking of from Harvard.

The waiting drove me mad....
I don't want to hear from those that know...
Everything has changed, absolutely nothing's changed


Eddie is a....draftnik?

I like McPrherson cause behind our line, he will need to have some athleticism. I don\'t know much about Frye on that end. but I agree BNB the character issues he had are not the deal breaking kind, they were just out of line for NCAA football. He could be a steal in the 3rd. I wouldn\'t be mad if we got Frye though.

As for the character issues, Mcpherson admitted to floating bad checks, but not to gambling- whether he did both I don\'t know.

An article regarding his performance at the combine- near the bottom. Also he ran a 4.72 40 during which he pulled his quad.

...and his draft profile

http://www.nfldraftcountdown.com/pla...mcpherson.html

- An interesting note the last time I posted this (I was the one who brought him up eariler), someone copy-pasted the weaknesses section and then proceeded to say how we shouldn\'t draft him. Not that this guy doesn\'t have character issues, but to completely ignore everything else and not give an overall analysis I think shows how negative this board can be.

I\'d like to see us draft him. I think he has superstar potential. I think some team will take hime him in the second round though.

I think Mcpherson and Alex Smith will be the two best QBs out of this draft. Speaking of which - sometime before draft day I think we should have a thread were we list our top 5 or 10 draft stars and busts. It\'d be interesting to see in a year or two.

I can\'t remember his name ever...but yeah

btw-sportsweekly has a great rundown of the top players in the draft.

I floated bad checks in college too. I hope none of my fans are reading this.
Never did think you had much in the way of character, BnB!

That\'s a good idea 200, I know I poo-pooed him, but I didn\'t post his negatives. I thought the character issues were bad too, but it doesn\'t seem so heavy to me now, especially since it appears he has talent. And especially in light of recent admissions by BNB. Now that\'s a guy who is off the draft board. But I am sold on the guy now. I like him, or Jason Campbell, although I am more enamored with McPherson\'s upside than Campbell\'s.

Thanks, WhoDat, I miss your backhanded compliments almost as much as ww\'s posts. :P
Look at me, I\'m now nothing more than a free agent walk-on :casstet:
