Maybe I didn't understand what you were trying to say, but it sure looked like you were saying they should have drafted multiple WRs.
Then you said ' I think there were several receivers on the board that they should have taken instead of sticking with guys like Parker or Butler.'
Which again, is talking about taking more than 2 guys in the draft. No one ever claimed you said they should drop everyone, but you clearly seem to think they should have replaced multiple guys with rookies.
What they said by their draft was that they couldn't even find a place for one rookie wide receiver on their roster at the draft pick in which he was available. I find that incredible.
If they got a great pick earlier, maybe they wouldn't need a second. If they got a "maybe" then take another shot to hit later on.
Note that I wrote "Parker or Butler". Not Parker AND Butler. It's "or". That means not both of them, does it? You replace one and perhaps don't need to replace the other, based on expected role.
You wrote: "Better WRs as rookies vs. the guys they have as vets? They could have added maybe one guy, hardly overhaul the entire corps." That suggests that I said they should overhaul the entire corps. Those are your words, not mine. Who suggested they should overhaul the entire corps?
One rookie? For sure. Absolutely. Do you disagree?
Two rookies? Maybe, as you got later in the draft. Take a shot. Round 5 or 6, or even 7. Again, do you disagree? For some reason, teams like the Chiefs were able to find a receiver outside the first round. So were the Vikings. And the Steelers. I wish I had confidence in their ability to draft well, such that I trust their decisions to be the work of pure genius.
I don't. I think a monkey throwing darts at a draft list could draft a better roster past the first one or two rounds.
Now, go ahead and critique me for that. Question what kind of monkey? Who trained him to throw darts? How were the names arranged on the dart board draft list? What happens if he misses the throw? And what if he drops a dart, does he lose the pick?
When we can't win the argument, we'll just get you banned.
