    To be fair, Haynes was supposed to be a fit for Jauron's D, and was absolutely not for Lovie's. Also, it was Lovie's first OC that insisted on bringing in Quinn, because he was a backup at KC and "knew the system". Hutchinson was the only bright spot at QB in 2004, and was promptly gotten rid of after a poor outing in the 2005 preseason.

    Ok, so I haven't really watched Robinson play ball because time is limited and I've mainly concerned myself with possibilities for the Bears... but a lot of what I've read about Robinson is that he's very RAW and his pass pro technique needs to be coached up. How does that make him the SAFEST player in the whole draft class? Or is all of that I've read on him inaccurate and he's as sure fire as Orlando Pace was, coming into the league?

    B/R is fairly critical, but says he's one of the best 2 OT's in the draft and calls him a plug and play OT.
    Walter has him as the top OT in the draft.

    So w/my limited looking around I'd say he's probably looked at as pretty damn safe.

    As what though Henry. He couldn't play DE or DT.

    It's JA talking. What else is there to say. This is the guy who drooled over a kid who could jump out of swimming pools but never learned how to play football and spent a third round pick on a WR whose now playing for the who? The Helsinki Wolverines?????? Do they play night games up there in the Midnight Sun League?

    Manziel a top five pick? The guy has the potential to be the biggest coach and GM killing QB to be drafted since Ryan Leaf. 80% of the teams picking are frightened to death of him. He's far more a novelty pick for a bottom feeder who needs to put butts in seats like Jax than he is for any team seriously thinking of contending.

    Yeah, I guess there's differing opinions. I've read, using Jerry speak, that his floor is lower than other top OTs in pass pro, but his ceiling there and ceiling overall is sky high, and that's why he's rated so high. When there's technique issues to coach up, I wouldn't say it's safe... again, I've seen little to nothing with my own eyes to give an honest assessment.

    Back in the day, there was this article regarding a player's desire and interest in playing football. They cited three examples but did not list them by name, but with a little digging it was easy to figure out who they were talking about. One player during his interviews would not shut up about playing piano. They would try to steer the conversation towards football, and he'd get it back to playing piano. That player as far as we could figure out? Joey Harrington.

    Next on the list was a guy that was so interested in zoology that he would not shut up about animals during his interview. As far as we could figure, it was Michael Haynes. He just did not have the focus to succeed in the NFL because he did not actually like playing the game. And of course Lovie moved him around and asked him to change his weight probably didn't help.

    Last guy was Kwame Harris, but I can't remember what his deal was. Maybe it was something about him accidentally admitting that he was gay in his interview, but my memory is hazy. I didn't care about what his deal was. Joey Ballgame and Haynes lack of interest in their interview were what stuck in my memory.
