This is the only reasonable discussion I've been able to have on it. The brain trust that believes SP can do no wrong and are in denial about our D and draft record since 09 jumped up my arse defending the pick when they know deep down they don't like it either. Ironically the last time I bitched this much is when we took Dante stallworth when Ed reed was on the board. fricking haslett and his 40 times.
I think I was just surprised at how extreme some of the negative reaction was by those who preferred Jones. Of course, I had my doubts about Jones in the first place (although I freely admit he could turn out to be a stud in the NFL, especially under LeBeau). Like I said, KV seems to be a safe pick and should contribute right away. If Galette, Butler, and company along with the 3-4 don't pan out, then I guess we're fricked for another year.
Yeah, Reed may have been a better choice.
But, dude, I have a little more faith in the current regime.
