I wasn't trying to say you in particuliar were saying those things about those players, just that I heard it alot about those young guys as a whole. Here, DMN blogs, BTB, I remember your stance on alot of them. But people saw them start getting good in their rookie seasons and just got carried away to where they think they would end up in a few years.
I also don't consider myself being a "Cowboy hater" or being on that side. See the thing about me, and your the same way, is I just call it like I see it. There doesn't have to be just one side you stick to no matter what, I hate fans like that. I defend Jerry quite a bit but when he does something stupid I'll criticize it. When people were raising the question should we fire Wade a year or 2 ago I defended him, but not how we came out this year.
I was also willing to give the 2009 draft a chance before bashing it like you did, you were right, but funny thing is had we gotten the guys most of us did want they would have been bust.
Now this whole thing with Dez has you making me sound like I'm a Dez hater, or think he's gonna bust. I'm not saying that, I'm saying that while you guys think he's gonna be the best player in the NFL, excuse me while I just stay skeptical and wait for him to actually earn that crown before I consider him that good. Some guys it takes some time, some guys don't put in the craft in the off-season, some have a down year after a big year, and some fizzle away after a big rookie season.
I'm not gonna act like I know what Dez is gonna do, but I'd put my bets on him being a stud and getting better, but I'm just not gonna act like he's the best thing the NFL has seen in 50 years. Everybody forgotten Anquan Boldins rookie season? 101/1400/8. We have seen guys come in and dominate before, but how many people have ever called Q the best WR in football?
So while you guys act like it's a sure thing, that's fine, all I've been saying is I'll wait as he proves it on the field. I want him to, and I'm as happy as anyone we drafted him or when he scores. I'm just not about to start saying he has the best ball control the NFL has seen in 30 years, or other off the wall charts like Dez is the first good WR I've ever seen in my life. That Jerry Rice guy was pretty good but even he didn't have the measurables Dez does.
