In Topic: What Draft "Mistakes" Did You See?

You should have watched more games. Colorado might have been his most impressive performance. Or Rutgers, but that's just Rutgers...



Why would I want to watch more ichigan games?   I don't care how good or bad he was in college anymore.  He's on the Browns so I hope he's the next Lawrence Taylor or Eric Turner and has a nice long career that ends up with him in the hall of fame someday.

Ehhh, they aren't THAT similar. Peppers is bigger, and played more up at the LOS. Honey Badger was better in coverage. Both were DBs that played special teams and we're utilized in unique ways though. But no one ever suggested Tyranny at LB coming out of college



Wasn't comparing the playing styles or size.  The comparison made sense to me in that they were both thought to be too small to play in the NFL at whatever position it is that they are playing.  However, Mathieu loves playing football and is a football player and guys like that can overcome their size or lack of size.  Peppers would seem to me to also be a guy like that and hopefully will have even more success.

Why not?


Personally, the absolute last thing I want to read is another Ghoolie thread...I mean, who actually wants to start one anyway?


Only thing worse than his drivel, are the schmucks who feel a need to respond to it....endlessly.....



And there you have the reason why it was deleted.    I didn't see the point of it, especially knowing full well that he wouldn't respond.   Hoorta is right except I'd say it's more than half the time he's just posting to get the reaction of the dolts who feel the need to respond.   The thread in question would've turned into a total shit show before the end of the first page so I nuked it to save the board some nonsense.

Good pickup Mark. I would not have thought of that, but very similar kind of player indeed. Hope our wolverine works out as well as their honey badger.


Hope so....I really only saw one game that he played (against OSU) and he wasn't all that impressive.   But all reviews are that he loves the game and loves to play and that's a good start.   I did like that he did the workouts at the combine with both the LB and the DB.   Not sure I've heard of many others doing that.

Also Peppers...ya hate me if you want but he's a tweener. Where does he fit in other than a player in STs


Only disagreement with this and before the draft I would've agreed with you but now that Peppers is in Cleveland, you know who else was a tweener was Mathieu in Arizona and he's played pretty damn well in the NFL.
