NFL Daft

Not draft, “daft”. As in fans losing their minds over the NFL’s selection process.

The NFL Draft is quite unique. That is, unless you consider the NFL has ripped off the hockey draft format, like it has done to everything successful the NHL has ever done. It’s successfully avoided the NHL’s labor strife, settling for keeping its fan base over minor gains for ownership.

What I’m gonna talk about here is the craziness exhibited by a football-mad America. Whenever something about the NFL comes on, it’s overblown, overanalyzed and part of a whinefest beyond belief. The link to the 2013 draft shows players, their alleged strengths and weaknesses. Their heights are measured in eighths of inches.

Today, I heard Mike Greenberg whining about the Jets draft, before a draft expert made him at ease. At the same time, Mike Taylor was defending the Cowboys draft in a lukewarm way while fans were trashing their new center and ownership too. A famous comedian whom I know well stated of the Raiders pick “I don’t like the pick”, except he had never seen the guy play before. Those three teams had selected (between them) four players. By the way, does anyone outside of New York truly give a f**k about the Jets? It’s entirely a media-driven phenomena. Meanwhile, the Giants have played in five SB’s since the Jets won in 1969.

People need to get over themselves. It’s ONE ROUND (now three with rounds 2 and 3 in the books). They don’t scout players. They can’t tell what makes one great and one average. Unless you’re a football junky and statistician, you won’t know. It isn’t your job. Its a seven round draft. A couple of hits in the late rounds makes your team a threat. If your team’s depth sinks to the depths, you will shoot for top-5 status in 2014. The great part is, you won’t know until September1

Meanwhile, in this link having nothing to do with football, Jessica Alba makes a stunning appearance. I suggest you observe this beautiful woman.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
