If Vick gets taken in the 2nd/3rd round, and plays like a top 7 overall player that people feel he is,
That is where Mr. Bagel said people project him as a top 7 OVERALL. Do you guys need a seeing eye dog to read the posts correctly? Overall means all players NOT only QBs. And I got the point, if Vick is drafted in the 2nd or 3rd round and plays like a top 7 pick then he'll be a steal and like getting a first rounder for a 3rd rounder. I'm saying most people don't project him as a top 7 OVERALL player.
First - no one is saying Vick is a top 7 pick.
Uh, no one said he would be picked in the top 7. But someone said people have him ranked top 7 overall. I didn't say anywhere about a specific person saying he should go top 7. I said that Mr. Bagel said that 'People' project him as a top 7.
Second - and this is more important for me to get across - your statement about past performance being the best indicator of future perfomance is extremely wrong. This is a common misconception used in many aspects of our lives. Fundamental analysis of the current situation and future prospects is the best indicator for future performance. Just like the stock market, chasing trends is the easiest and most common way to fail.
With out change then the best indicator of future performance is past performance. It's the truth. It's the best and easiest way to predict what will happen. True if things change then you re-evaluate the situation. Not much has changed for Vick so I'm not banking on him as a player I must get. Especially cause he's going to go too high. Of course it's not an exact science. And using your stock analogy I have to say that most stocks are pretty secure and you know what you're going to get because of past performance (lets say Coca-Cola). And then you have your overhyped 'New' stock that gets everyone to over pay with getting little in return (lets say, Breex Gold). Of course Their are the stocks that are hyped and actually do do well, but they are risky (Lets say RIM when it first came out). This thread started with McNabb vs. Vick. I'll let you decide which player is which company.
My top 7:
Nice.. so umm what about top 7 QBs?
Well if you read the post I said I'd say Vick is probably my 4th ranked QB behind McNabb, Manning and Culpepper. And since the question was whats my top 7 OVERALL I answered with all RBs because they are my top 7 OVERALL.
I think we need a dictionary in here. Can someone get a mod to link up a dictionary site?
So they weren't the best...and may have ended the worst. SO WHAT!
