Wow, the homerism is strong in this draft. Apparently anyone who dislikes a pick is a HATER. Can't we have a discussion about a player without people getting upset when someone else doesn't LOVE every single player that John and Pete choose?
It's as if people think that every player picked is going to make the team if and only if they defend that pick. Some of these guys are going to suck, and just like some posters recognized greatness early on in Russell Wilson, some will recognize mediocrity in a player early on in a player.
The other argument that I hear is "we won the Superbowl last year, or did you forget?" As if that means the front office is now infallible. What happens if we don't make the playoffs this year? Or have people already determined that we have a dynasty?
The Front office has blown it on a lot of picks, all through the process, at every round. Where's our "Anquan Boldin" that everyone was so jazzed about last year and that everyone was quoting Kiper about? If one of those "pundits" has something good to say about our draft pick they get quoted. I see tweets from people that nobody has heard of being quoted yet Mayock is dumb?
Let's be reasonable here. A lot of these guys may not make the team, some will be injury prone, some just will not be football players. And some of the "naysayers" and "haters" on here will be correct. It does no one any good to call them names if they disagree about about a choice.
So let them speak their piece, and try not to get upset about it. Because when you do, it's obvious to everyone here by the lack of discussion in your post. Negativity and hyperbole are evidence of one thing, an inability to respond in a thoughtful way.
This is a discussion forum. Let's discuss the draft, both the pros and the cons of it. Not JUST the Pros. That is unless YOU can guarantee the rest of us that all of these players will be starters for The Seahawks and that they will win us the 2015 Superbowl. Then by all means I'd be on board with trashing the naysayers.
