susweet and i agree with you and thats about it,, sad to say. i guess they thought they could just get the same players to do the same things this year as they did last year. we saw what the rookies did last year, to bad they got away from thier game plan but that is not the first time the coaches have went away from something that works.

Couldn't have said it better myself.
Look what happened to Aaron Rodgers. Sat behind Favre for 3-4 season than burst onto the scene. In my opinion, I believe he's the best QB in the league atm.
Great front office management by the Packers. Something the Colts didn't do, but it worked out for them in the end. They got Luck.
A QB selected 24th overall, riding the pine behind an NFL legend is =/= to a first round WR and a second round RB from the same draft class not even being active on game days. In todays NFL you cannot have nearly your entire draft class contribute 0 to the team.
Yea im done talking about it. All it does is bring out the "well this QB sat, and it was ok" arguements. Like i said, one player sitting =/= to an entire draft making no contributions. This Team is good upfront, but lacks quality depth at nearly every position besides WR, QB, and RB.
I keep asking someone to give me a single example of a team that has done what we have done this year in the draft and been successful. Haven't had anyone give me an example yet. They just keep making the same excuses about why the #1 and #2 draft picks arent even active on game days. they fail to see that other players could have been had at those pics that would have been active and at the very least contributed sparingly. Blind optimism is just that.
We make the playoffs one season and all of a sudden were the deepest team in the history of football and can afford to have the draft that we did? The patriots get contributions every single year from rookies. Thats why they stay on top. Good teams, regardless of depth, find players in the draft that can contribute year one. Im not saying they have to be superstars, but you cant have no contribution from a single draft pick.
I have said all along that i really like Harbaalkie. But i think they screwed this 2012 draft bigtime, and i bet if you were close to either one of them and got them drunk in a bar, they would admit it. Draft Gets an F from me.
