I specifically saw you criticizing someone who started a thread about draft prospects, a while back. You basically said that it was stupid for anyone to think that they can have any clue what the team is looking for. But all he was doing was making predictions. No harm in that.

So that shoots down where you said you don't mind if someone wants to do a mock draft.

You claim that it's only the people who say they can run the team better, who frustrate you. Yet, I clearly see you jumping on people (including me) who simply state that we would have preferred a different position be addressed.

You say I have caught your "ire", yet I have never stated that if I were running the team, things would be better. When I am critical of the organization, it's when there is a pattern of futility in regards to whatever subject I'm criticizing. and that is because, as professionals, I expect better of them.

I don't work in the NFL, of course. But whatever I do, or have done, I'm typically a fast learner. If I chose to take up a career path that led me to work in a front office, I guarantee you I would learn quickly from any mistakes. If it were my job to study hundreds of hours of tape, I would do so. So the point isn't whether myself, or others, are qualified to run an organization. It's that we expect those who are to do better. We're all held to certain standards in whatever job field we work in... Does that make sense to you?

You absolutely do not limit your criticism to just certain individuals. You don't like ANY opinion that is not in line with the team, and YOURS. No matter how calm and reasonable a person may try to be in explaining themselves, the response from you remains the same. "You don't have a clue what you're talking about. You're really dumb if you think you have any idea".
Well put. I apologize to you.

I accept your apology, but really I wasn't looking for that. Just wanted to get my point across, better. I appreciate it, though.

We all have our opinions, and I certainly have more than my share of disagreements. I try really hard to keep it as nothing more than that. Hopefully we can all discuss with cooler heads, in the future.
