Some may argue he is just crazy, and I will admit that has crossed my mind also. After all he just finished his first NFL draft calling the shots, and the experts vary widely on his performance. One thing we know is he is not going to follow blindly what the experts say should be done. Also I think we can preclude that he thinks he knows better than the experts what should be done. Lastly I think it is fair to say he does not care if they agree with him or not. A few more observations after the jump.
I do think though that he does care what the fans think. At least a little bit anyway. With that in mind I came up with a thought on how to look at last weekends draft. It starts with the premise that we as fans were divided into three major camps as was stated in another recent fanpost.(Thanks for not steeling all my thoughts "mob") The three fractions were all adamant on why Tebow, Clausen, or LT had to be picked in the first round or the world would come to an end. I feel your disappointment as I was in the last camp and was neglected just as were most of you. From there use your imaginations if you would, and imagine Nix is our father(the three fractions are the three little stepchildren) and we are all fighting over how the toy dad is going to get us is better than the toy he is going to get the other two. Nix (dad) can only get one toy, and it is obvious he is going to make two of his sons angry know matter which way he goes. The wise father not willing to have division in the home decides to not give any of them the toy they wanted, and the three stepchildren are unified
in their hatred of their father in their misery. I hope you get the point. I do not think this was Nix's draft strategy to make everyone unhappy, but as he has said several times their were more holes than could be filled by the picks that were available, and I know he is smart enough to know the need that is there at QB, and LT. So maybe he was filling all the other holes while giving us all a new toy to brag about (Spiller) even if it was not the toy any of us wanted. CRAZY LIKE A FOX !!!!! Only time will tell.
