Very early in the season, but Hill looks to be pretty strong. He was my number two WR in this draft....Jenkins number seven. Made the rookie, Gilmore, look silly.
Don't even get me going on JJ Watt. Dude is quickly becoming elite.
By all means, MD, get going on Watt. How about Ray Mac, Ahmad Brooks, Bowman, Aldon Smith? These guys would either not be on the field or on our team if you were in charge. What you continue to fail to acknowledge about Watt, is that you would have let Ray Mac go to get him. Then what at OLB? Yeah, that's what I thought. The reason everyone talks about our front seven, is because we have seven guys who dominate. You would have let go of three of them and kept Takeo Spikes instead of unleashing Bowman.
The point is, your criticism used to be based on bashing every move Baalke made. But now you'd just like to relive history as though you were correct at prognosticating things. Guess what? You were wrong. You called for Baalke's head. You thought we'd be lucky to win 8 games last year, saying it was more likely we win 4. We drafted Aldon Smith who is following up his monster rookie season with 3 sacks already this year. He's one of the best young pass rushers in the game and we got to retain Ray Mac, one of the top 3-4 linemen in the league, a guy you thought we grossly overpaid.
Spare us your patting of your own back. You not only have been wrong about our team, but you've put others down for disagreeing with you. So let's stop pretending you are some guru instead of just another average fan who frequently puts his foot in his mouth.
