So I got a little bored today and decided to check out some ridiculously early mock drafts in an attempt to familiarize myself with some of the names that are getting kicked around the top of the draft boards at this early stage. My first stop was Walter Football. Walt is typically pretty good and it just so happened to be the first site in my mock draft folder of my bookmarks. Here is his latest mock. As I scrolled down to the Bills pick I was amazed at what I read. Here is the very first sentence for those of you who are too lazy to click the link:
The Bills have ruined their chances of becoming a playoff contender in the first half of this decade by winning themselves out of the Andrew Luck sweepstakes.
So let me get this straight; the only way the Bills have any chance at making the playoffs in the next five years is if they get their hands on Luck.?!?!?! I admit that I haven't watched Luck play at all, but I do understand that he is very highly thought of and as of right now he is the consensus top pick and by leaps and bounds the top QB in the draft. But that is a pretty bold statement. I mean you are telling me that this is the only chance the Bills will have in the next five years to acquire a QB capable of bringing them to the playoffs? FIVE YEARS?!?!?!
As they say on ESPN: Come On Man!
Walt may have just been being factious here but he comes across pretty fatuous and quite frankly makes me question his football acumen a bit. Maybe I should move him down a few spaces in my folder....
