Well, we fired the guy who made those picks over the past 10 years.

That said, Rondale Moore, Byron Murphy, Christian Kirk, Budda Baker, and Markus Golden all had arguably better seasons that BJ Ojulari.

Really waiting on someone to make the positive case for Ojulari's rookie season.
Arguably better and stellar I think are 2 different things....lol Stellar should have a much higher qualifier than arguably better than Ojulari as a benchmark.

Or that sacks aren't the be-all, end-all stat in the NFL. Let's take Felix Anudike-Uzomah, for example.

Yes, 218 snaps. In fact, from Week 8 to week 16 he never played more than 9 snaps in a game. He's been inactive in all three KC playoff games. Despite playing double-digit snaps twice since October 12, he managed to get seven QB hits and nine pressures.

Yes, Felix Anudike-Uzomah had more pressures in 218 snaps than Beej had in 409 (8). Lots to look forward to for Mr. Ojulari in 2024.

It's almost as if Felix is playing on a super bowl quality D line and Ojulari was playing next to some guys off the sofa...

He's four months younger than Will Anderson. Saying he was the youngest player in the draft is accurate, but it's not as informative as a lot of people who would like to excuse his rookie season would like it to be.

I'd also add that you project him to be a six-to-eight-sack per season guy, which is a lower ceiling than I think a lot of people would want for the draft status.

He has a similar draft status to Markus Golden and he was a 6 to 8 sack guy most of his career, peaking at 12.5. Most seasons less.

I seem to recall people thought Golden was always a solid pick.

This is going to be like Trey McBride again. I'm not as bullish on Ojulari but maybe stop writing rookies off after a year?

You don’t even know what “opposite” means, smh. Poor guy.

I know that I said dozens of times that Keim sucks and should be fired and you somehow read that as me supporting Keim.

Ojulari was less productive than Michael Wilson last year. Why are people saying Wilson is going to have to battle for the #3 spot and talking up Ojulari like he is something we should be counting on?

Not the same people.

The people that think Wilson will be battling for #3 are the same people that think Ojulari sucks. Let's call them, I don't know, Darksiders.

And other people think Wilson and Ojulari can both be more.

If you don't realize that one is a directly against the rules, then maybe this place isn't right for you.

They seem like 2 versions of the same thing except one is just saying be quiet and the other is saying to leave. But I'll remember to use the other in future.

Well, if someone says GTFOH to me, I know he means S T F U.

Why not ban both terms?

If it comes up **** we know not to use it.
Technically both are against the rules as both are attempting to get around the profanity filter. One is clearly worse than the other.

Please do not use either term.

How do you measure productivity between, not only different positions, but different sides of the ball?

Context doesn't help his argument, because bad arguments generally lack context.

In @kerouac9 world, football is a individual sport apparently. Laughably bad argument.

The humbling he's taken the last few years is going to lead to a better pro career imo.

I think Rattler will have a long career as an NFL backup and I don't mean that as an insult. If you watch him play enough, he's a good college player that won't likely be good enough to start consistently in the NFL but could string together a few good games.

Similar to how there were 10+ Edge rushers listed as taken before Ojulari and he just happened to pick the one guy that out of them all with some better pressure stats to make a case Ojulari actually sucks.

Takes some dedication to crapping on Cardinals players to go through the stats of 10 rookies that barely played to find the one that suits your fantasy.
