until you address head-on LA's refutation of your claims, you are still pwned.
There are 12 pages of notes. Which one of the 150 comments do you want me to address?
Feel free to click on the links provided. You may also refer to ESPN's Mike Sando's analysis of Heitmann as well.
As for comments by players in the league, I will continue to look. Leaguewide praise on centers is not a hot topic for journalists. Doesn't seem to generate as much interest as skilled positions.
While I am searching, I will note that broadcasters get a lot of their information about players from opponents who speak about them during the week. That is why twice this season, Heitmann has been praised as being a solid NFC center.
I will continue to look for you.
um...no. dude, you need to respond to LA's response to your link. he exposed your lack of proof that Heitmann is recognized league wide as a great center.
My whole point in asking for the links initially is that you like to make blanket generalizations and preach them as the gospel truth. You are wrong here--not about whether or not Heitmann is playing better this year, but about how Heitmann is such a widely recognized player that only you and the "experts" notice it but none of us "noobs" or "commoners" do.
Man up and admit that you used hyperbole and got caught.
So, you are saying that broadcasters and sportswriters make this stuff up. That they do not talk to the opponents about the best players from other teams. That is silly, and you know it.
So, let's replay...
At least three local sportswriters who follow the 49ers do not think that Heitmann is recogized around the league.
That the SFI writer that posts weekly reports for other teams about the Niners does not understand that Heitmann is respected around the league.
That more than one national publication, I am starting to lose track (including ESPN) doesn't talk to other teams about players in their division or league.
Sure, you may continue to live in your own fantasy.
