    Additive, not argumentative, not non sequitur. Sometimes people add to a discussion instead of argue.

    A simple response would have been, "Jones isn't too good to pass up at #14."

    Jack was an example of the statement, too good to pass up. Simple.

    A needless statement. Exactly.

    To someone expecting an argument, not a discussion.

    Perhaps. But as you conceded above, you didn't make the statement for purposes of discussion, your alluded to denial notwithstanding.

    What's the discussion? Have you disagreed with anything of substance I've said?

    It is not a surprise to see Florio take shots at someone. He is probably among the least professional "journalists" in the game. He is known to harbor animosity against certain parties and use his platform to skew information to be detrimental to those parties.

    Bet those certain parties don't work for NBC. Like to see what stories he's pulled since he took a payday from NBC.

    My heart swelled with patriotic pride to see this post.

    The term of abuse 'wanker'. Bloody marvellous. As British as egg and chips.

    We debated 8 needs on O and D heading into the draft, and Red addressed (1) SS (Joseph), (2) 5-tech/3-tech DT (Ward), (3) edge defender (Calhoun), (4) RB (Washington), and (5) ILB (James). Red indirectly addressed (6) LT via OG (Alexander) freeing up KO. While we can debate how effective those picks will be assessing those needs, it only left two positions unaddressed: (7) WR (#3/deep threat) and (8) CB (to replace DJ/McGill). While I wanted Perry or Vigil over James, and Braverman, Cook will likely be worth the 4th & 5th given up.
