  1. You have my condolences, Sidney. I know that the Stanley pick must have been hard on you. Squeezed between the Joe Flacco contract and Ozzie's recent drafting, things are looking grim for the Ravens over the short-term.

    So bad, in fact, that I have a standing bet that the even the Browns will accumulate more wins this season. I don't expect it to hit, but that such a thing is even a possibility should be a cause of concern.

    1. Yeah, I think the Ravens are treading water at this point. It's been a long time since they hit on a truly top notch player. Stanley just seems like another mediocrity, though I guess it's still a bit too early to say for sure.

      The Browns are a fairly odd and amusing team. Sure, they have their problems, but there are some fairly respectable players on their team. Probably not enough, or at the right positions to make a real run, but it is fun to bet on a perpetual underdog.

    2. The Browns don't have to put together a real run for me to hit my bet - I am not that crazy. They simply have to limp a little faster then the Ravens.

      I should also take a moment to mention that you do some good work here, Sidney. I don't think that it is said to you often enough, leaving you to wonder if your opinions are simply echoing in some empty corner of the internet. I've used your little draft board three years running now and have watched with interest as your prospects develop (or not). I am genuinely surprised that you don't have more of a following.

    3. Thanks for the kind words. That is among the nicest comments that my peculiar blog has attracted.

      While there are many people who write about football and the draft, I think we have been spectacularly successful when it comes to being one of the most unpopular sites. It's probably a notable achievement. I attribute this to a number of factors.

      1. My insane devotion to Reilly (including commentary on how he could devour more human beings than a typical defensive tackle), which probably makes most dog owners feel inferior.

      2. Too many references to tentacle porn. It probably puts us on the fringe of accepted sports commentary.

      3. I'm incredibly half-assed about promoting the blog, at least compared to a lot of other people. People either stumble through here, or they don't. I'm very bad at self promotion.

      4. I might be nuts, and easily recognized as a lunatic.

      I can't dismiss any of these possibilities. Seeing how the internet works, I'd probably get more page-views by posting pictures of Reilly slumbering on the couch, but he refuses to sign the contract to release the photos. I can't afford to pay Reilly what he is demanding, so...I just talk about football instead.

  2. Looks like the Stanley pick was so morale shattering that it killed this excellent blog. For the record, two years in and ProFootballFocus has Stanley rated 76.2, putting him as tied 31st among tackles, which is almost the perfect definition of average. Quite the pity for a first round pick.

    Wherever you are and wherever your passions may lead you, I wish you luck, Sidney.
