He's got nothing on me, though I suspect I've got nothing on Jon Gruden.

I was hoping Schneider would walk over and punch him in the face, but alas. No such luck. I think Schneider would have taken him in the first round if his intel had told him too.
I had the same reaction when I saw that. JS would have taken Wilson at #12 if the hype had ever caught on and he was forced to. So would I. At the end of day one (first round) I joked on SDB that Seattle needed to draft Wilson in round 2 if they wanted to make me happy.
It's a lame argument anyway. I guess the Patriots are idiots because they didn't take Brady in the 1st? Some draft steals really are dumb luck, but Wilson and Brady ain't among them. Those were great players you could see coming if you were willing to step away from the process and it's discriminatory traits to give real thought to something. As my sig says, "if everyone's thinking alike, nobody's thinking."
