I've watched NFL Network's combine coverage and the drafts and I can't stand all of the yuk-yuk that goes on. Every once in awhile you will actually get some decent insight on a player. I watch their NFL total access which seems to think there are only 3-4 teams in the NFL and it seems they are purposely targeting the LCD (lowest common denominator) with their antics.
You have to love it when an "analyst's" opinion starts with, "Dude need to get PAID!"
Why do you think this player can help team X? "Yo, dude is just a baller. You get this man here and he can do everything for you."
Gee thanks. Let me go drink about 10 beers so I can join in the fun and understand all the gibberish.
This is how I feel most of the articles on this site are written. They are written with (my opinion) a notion that the fans don't know anything about the players, the team, or the game of football. This is why I feel the message board community is so valuable because it allows for some more intellectual conversations.
As for, "Well, all the other teams are ditching their message boards..." Since when did the Ravens become followers and not leaders? Since when did we want to become just like everybody else?
