  1. this is a funny way to defend ND by citing miami players. it is telling that you avoided the substantive part of my post.
  2. one or two players a trend doth not make. this is like saying height doesn't matter at the QB position because brees has done well. despite such exceptions, you're still statistically better off with a taller QB. so in order to maximize your odds of not striking out, a GM should avoid ND players in the first (and possibly even 2nd) rounds because ND has 10x the national press coverage of other schools (i.e. NBC contract) and thus its star players get an artificial boost in value due to media hype/exposure/and familiarity. not saying a ND player can't succeed at the next level, you're just more likely to overpay for him in the draft.
  3. you're proving my point by comparing nd to the other school with the most over-rated players. thank you.
  4. yes but 3 stinks considering how many 1st round picks have been burned on dud ND players over that time frame.
  5. i understand the trepidation, although LT wasn't brought in to start.
  6. but only three in the last 20 years. i'm not disputing they used to be a great program but last 25 years or so they are the quintessential "over rated due to legacy" program.
  7. occasionally an ND player isn't a bust but, on average, domers are grossly over-rated.
  8. the only saving grace is that i'm not nearly as optimistic as game 1 of the 1999 season.
  9. if you want to maximize your chance of drafting a bust, take a domer in round 1.
  10. and if you take away peyton's superbowl ring he is dan marino.
  11. Hey at least she's not blaming it on a gland problem.
  12. wow this team is freaking aggressive. not used to seeing the jets be so proactive. exciting times to be a jets fan.
  13. yes, this is why i bought it. i'm a perfectionist when it comes to buying electronics. the pioneers were rated a little bit higher but are 150% more expensive. none at all. we're happy with it. i'm not a gamer, either. i have a samsung lcd in my bedroom - the plasma has a better picture imho.
  14. our WRs aren't exactly blowing the world away either. crotch is steady but unexplosive and braybray's problems holding on to the ball are well documented.
  15. can't believe some turds are gloating over this injury. welker is a helluva competitor who has fought an uphill battle his entire career because of his size and being stuck with the offensively-challenged fins for the beginning of his career. he's a real rags to riches success story and it's because he works his tail off. i for one have a lot of respect for a player like that which seems rarer and rarer every year, especially in the ranks of prima donna WRs. hating a guy like welker who keeps his mouth shut and does everything that is asked of him and more reeks of jealously in my opinion. classless.
  16. it think the opposite is true--from what i understand for LT to approach $5mill under our offer he has to hit some performance benchmarks which either means greene goes down and we needed him or he performs better than 2009 indicated he would. either way, if he gets his $5mill we'll be glad to pay it.
  17. good sleuthing; i think we just figured out where the dinner is.
  18. find the power button, go take a walk to burn off steam, and come back later. the site will still be here and you'll feel better, promise. XO
