Originally posted by spizzy:Take a chill pill. I'm simply saying that he's not as great as everyone makes him out to be, which is the best GM in football in terms of talent evaluation. He has hit more than he's missed but I was pointing out that the 2012 draft in its entirety is a hard failure, which is pretty rare. AJ is arguably the biggest bust we've ever had which is pretty impressive.
I'm chill, it was more of a LMAO tone I was going for. We just have different views on his abilities and AJ. Bust, yes but worst pick ever? Not even close. He had a luxury pick to use and let his inner Al Davis get the best of him, but Jenkins wasn't a locker room cancer or a wifebeater just no confidence. And to hold injuries against him is lame, unless he drafts an injured player. Like if Carradine or Lattimore never get healthy than yeah hold that against him all you want.
What about Carlos Rogers, Boldin, extending McDonald, bowman,and Ian Williams. We needed a safety this year and so far Baalkes guy looks exactly like what you want out of a rookie.
It's ok not to rank him #1, but your post makes him sound like Donahue, when objectively he is easily top 5 in the league.
