Wow, I think I just found a new hobby: trashing brain-dead sports writers!

I was joking when I posted on my prior post that for my next trick I was going to pick on Armando Salguero, but then I read his latest masterpiece:

http://miamiherald.typepad.com/dolphins_in_depth/2009/05/ill-be-the-first-to-admit-that-i-often-view-the-draft-through-the-prism-of-what-the-player-is-likely-to-do-or-not-do-for-the.html

That's just a fantastic idea, let's grade our draft on the players that we didn't pick. Doesn't he get the point that those players don't just succed due to their talent, but to their SURROUNDING TALENT as well? Is he so brainless to believe that if Nicks has a great career than maybe it's because Nicks has a better supporting cast? Did he forget that our more pressing need was CB and not WR? IS HE STUPID!?!?! I think the answer is yes to all three questions. Here's a reader comment that just gave me the giggles:

Armando
I think I read just about everything you write but this may have been the dumbest thing I have ever read and I believe I'm stupider-er for having read it!
So by your logic when NE got brady in the 7th round that made every other team in the NFL's draft a bad draft! Because everyone picked before him pails in compairison?!?! I should be able to go on and on here but my brain just went numb from trying to figure out your logic for this!

Oh...MY....GOD!!! Here's an idea: let's all rush the Miami Herald, drag out Salguero and Cote (we'll leave the other sports writers for now, they haven't pissed me off yet), strip them, tar and feather them, kick 'em between the legs then break their computers/typewriters/pencils/hands to make sure they never write again.

Then we kick 'em between the legs again... each person one kick... I get two, since it's my idea.

Alright, that's enough out of me. Two rants within two days: I'm just surpassing myself. Let the hilarity commence.
