    A completely self-made man worth $75 million, on 100's of stations, simulcast on CBS sports and on satellite radio five days a week? I wish I were that big of an idiot.

    Im.on some pretty good beta bockers so one of your 8,000 posts about Edmunds doesn't really move the needle for me, let alone generate spit.i.don't think ive even had a really good message board fight in three years and that was the year after Troy was forced to retire and I was arguing about the secondary and that wasn't even heated.

    Edmunds must not have tried to cover anyone going deep yet. Then again, when a player rated as a 3rd-5th round pick goes in the 1st, you will have these issues.

    • Missed open field tackles have dogged him
    • Takes inconsistent angles to the ball
    • Lunges rather than sliding his feet to close distance on cutting runners
    • Too aggressive in response to route fakes
    • Bites and gets forced into recovery mode
    • Lacks desired instincts and feel for deep coverage
    • Doesn’t get enough depth to help on deep throws
    • Slow to read quarterback and get the jump to range over top
    • Fails to find football when his back is to the ball
    • Missed the end of the season with a shoulder injury that will have to clear medicals

    I haven't seen him do anything but nail his takes so far.

    No? This rhetoric doesn't seem very "beta blocked" to me.


    "As opposed to the blistering condemnation of someone with no NFL experience, no standing with the team, no inside info into practice, team meetings or posiRion coaching and still doesn't understand how the team will utilize the player he doesn't like. Pretty sure Burnett''s opinion pc or otherwise wins out here.thanks for playing and enjoy these parting gifts."

    I mean, just look at the content and the delivery. That's some anger.

    Short for NFL
    Not a real ball hawk
    Misses plays because he's out of position
    Does not read and diagnose well
    Struggles covering man deep
    Plays out of control
    Lacks great change of direction
    Does not have great playing speed/range
    Prefers setting up a well timed hit to break up a play over going for an interception.

    Anybody want to take a guess as to whom owned these negatives in his draft profile?

    Lol really because that's just cold hard truth there. You have continually spouted off about Edmunds having based your opinion on one of several draft reports and choosing only to focus on the two weaknesses they mentioned. You refuse to admit that they aren't going to use him as a traditional safety because you decided that as a first round pick he is the starter or will be at some point because that validates your point of view. Several members including myself have pointed out numerous coaches who have said Edmunds will be used in dime packages more than likely replacing a lb in the box but you discard it because it makes your narrative about a reach or wrong pick seem hastily made. Now you discredit Morgan Burnett''s opinion after praising him because obviously he is just being nice and you have done extensive research and know more than the team. Although you have not in any way been part of the rookie mini camp or OTA''s to the best of our knowledge. I mean are those facts untruth?

    You: He sucks I hope he never has to cover deep, the coaches can't teach instincts × 50

    Me: I like what cam said they show promise let's wait and see.

    You:No I can't wait I have to make my feelings about the draft known now!!!!!'

    Seems one of us is worked up, maybe it is me? Does dementia hit at 40? @mac daddyo@mac daddyo @Blast Furnace@Blast Furnace @TerribleTowelFlying@TerribleTowelFlying @SteelerGlenn@SteelerGlenn guys is dementia setting in?

    Speaking of whining, somebody here clearly hasn't gotten over the last verbal beating I gave him. Apparently, that motivated you to write this bit of fiction.

    Your opinion is duly noted and given the lack of consideration it deserves.

    Female pronouns as an insult? Apparently, you think your first-grade playground material is still good enough. The adults in the room see the childishness and misogyny in your post.

    Come on back when you finish elementary school.
