Thank you.

He's had a fantastic career thus far, but NO ONE knows what the future holds. Changes teams, changes schemes, injury, etc., etc. The body of work is simply too small to make such grand pronouncements.
He probably holds Olineman to let his teammates get sacks. He's a cheater to me.

Let's see Watt get a DUI and get stabbed, then put up those kind of numbers.

This. And a pretty big ego to go along with it

To be fair he has been wrong on some. And right on some. I suppose like anybody he brings up the right ones more. Isn't that what most people do?
I didn't start this thread, and to this day, I say it is too early to say in concrete terms that any player is assured of being superior to another from this draft....although I like Watt's chances.

Don't forget about Shawne Merriman.
Anybody know what Watt's stat line looked like after the GB game last week?

Watching that game, it looked like Watt was handled by GB's OL. He was getting alot of double teams.

Kinda like what Justin Smith sees every week.

With the stats Watt has put up so far this season, it would be surprising if any team did NOT double team him, which may mean that his stats go down a bit as the season progresses. Also shows that he's playing great if he gets the same kind of respect as Justin Smith.
MD for GM

Six tackles, five solo, two tackles for loss plus two sacks, three QB hurries and two or three QB hits.

And him and the defense gave up 42 points.

Stats are for losers
lawlz...

That's all I have to say.
I personally appreciate Maddog and the fact that you made this thread. I loved both Aldon and Watt coming out and was torn between the two.

No one is ever right all the time. One thing I can't stand is when people just assume that a GM knows better than a well-informed draft nut/football fan (take for instance Maddog). There are so many other factors (connections, luck, politics, etc.) that lead to people landing GM jobs these days. Take the 49ers for instance, you could have literally done a webzone poll for our 1st round draft pick each year under McGloughan and our team would have been better than the one that McGloughan fielded.

From recent memory these would have been the consensus picks:

Aaron Rodgers (over Alex Smith)
Desean Jackson (over Kentwan Balmer)
Patrick Willis (consensus agreed)
Vernon Davis (consensus agreed)
Michael Crabtree (consensus agreed)

Now that team looks much better even if you subtracted every single other good player that McGloughan drafted in the later rounds (Frank Gore, Dashon Goldson, Ray McDonald). There were literally entire draft classes wasted with nothing but depth to show for it. Scott McGloughan is surprisingly enough a well respected scout/GM in the NFL. While some GM's have made it earning their stripes, the truth is there are many football fans that are just as good if not better at evaluating talent than some GM/scouts. Yes they don't get all the background, interviews, in-depth tape, and dirt on players but just because they chose other professions does not make them any less of a judge of talent.

Desean Jackson over Aldon Smith- better do your fact checking.
