I said I am not sure that Rice has any particular skill at evaluating players for the draft.
I never said anything about his credentials and I never said that did not have skill. I am not sure that being the best receiver of all time means that Rice is good at talent evaluation or that he would be good at coaching.
But it is. You can say it's not but it's a judgement on his character especially when you correlate you're statement with what you were responding to.
BrianGO said "Wilson opened the door for QBs like Manziel. Houston would be crazy not to take him" and you responded with "Wilsons a hard worker and he's dedicated. Manziel might be more dedicated to his fame". You're trying to refute BrianGOs comparison of Manziel to Wilson by saying they're might
be a disparity in dedication.
You're stating you don't know about his dedication, but you're framing rebuttals around it. So why get caught up on the might? You know what you were getting at. The same thing you were getting at when you questioned Rice's comment.
not like Manziel.
You're not the only person that feels this way about Manziel. You're also not the only person I've argued with about him so it's all good.
