I also could be wrong though...
It's certainly minimized value on our team, with Eli and all, but I'm a fan of this pick.
Then again, I was also a big fan of the Andre Woodson pick in 2008, so my opinion on this type of situation doesn't really matter.
Fantasy headline quotes:
-Insanity, with "Eye of the Tiger" playing in the background, accumulated the highest point total this week and beat Hakeem Nicks 137.95 - 100.75, overcoming an 18.22-point spread.
-Legend of Seawright Throat-Punches Mediocrity.
-20-page Eli Argument Knocks Out Insanity, Delivers an Early-Season Message
U talk about ELI possibly getting hurt, but what about guys like Rivers who have shown nothing but the ability to stay off the field?
The funniest thing about it all is we have the most injuries of any team at positons like CB and LB and Dline and RB, and yet the one positon we draft a guy as insurance is at a positon we never have injuries..lol
And again, there's no reason for people to use the "Jerry Reese disagrees" argument in a draft forum. While it's encouraging to me that Reese felt strongly enough to move up to get Nassib, my perceived value for the Nassib pick was in and of itself, no matter what Reese did (peep the Barkley thread from yesterday).
