Found in archives-best long range prediction ever on TSW?

Recommended Posts

I refuse to give a frustrated fan credit for assuming we finish dead last and would take the #1 prospect in most mock drafts at the time.

I remember that post draft/first two games period. Everyone had to be fired for this and fired for that. Good times.

They came a long way from Davis retiring at halftime.

Still playing that card? Did you also know Lebron James was going to be good during his time in high school?!

 

Touting up kids who are already 5 star recruits won’t get yah any pats on the back. You can always do it yourself though.

Even better observation slightly down the archive post from @NewDayBills

Maybe they thought bills would be picking #1 overall and I believe Oliver was being gushed over as a potential #1 pick at the time. 

 

 

Yeah, the same way once the Sabres won the lottery they really didn't have to wait until draft day to know who their pick was going to be last year.

I was looking for something else when I stumbled onto this.  I never found what I was looking for & gave up.  

People who are spending their free time on a message board themselves shouldn't throw stones from their glass house. 

Whoa. So defensive.

I can't find the thread but I remember @Cripple Creek suggesting that Josh Allen looked like a perfect prospect for the Bills during his first year at JuCo and subsequent year at Wyoming (before his shoulder injury). If I find the thread I'll link it.  It's important because this was before any other national "expert" got on the Josh Allen train.

Not defensive, just telling it like it is.   The comment was idiotic since anyone on a message board is in some way wasting fee time.  I'm doing that right now but I don't care since I'm retired & have all the free time in the world.

You got an issue bro... I didn’t call you out once...

 

There are tons and tons and tons of 5* recruits who never pan out... who never star in college

 

tons  of 5* QBs who never do anything 

 

he was a highschooler when I said that... and I was the first to talk about him here

 

Every 17 year old has massive bust potential and All I said was he was the best HS QB I’ve ever seen and was going to be a top pick... i was going to the us all American bowl

 

You can be a douche but that is a prediction... because there are a dozens and dozens  5* QBs who haven’t planned out over the years 

 

fact

 

most 5* football recruits don’t even make the league... but Lawrence was a guaranteed star when I made this when he was a high schooler ? Yea right funny joke

 

4 out of 10 5* QBs don’t even get drafted and 60% that do don’t even last 5-6 years in the league... 5* QB retention rate is 40%

 

I realize it isn’t the boldest take... but nobody was even talking about Lawrence here in 17

A douche? Touchy subject?

 

He was the consensus 2018 #1 recruit in..... 2016. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.dawgnation.com/football/recruiting/nations-no-1-player-should-decide-very-soon-between-georgia-and-clemson/amp

 

Facts matter, I think it’s a weak attempt at passing it off as a good prediction. I don’t see the need for name calling. 

 

Silly.

Silly. 

 

Who cares if he was the #1 recruit? Does that mean every scout who scouted him doesn’t get credit?

 

I said he was PERSONALLY the best QB at his age I’ve ever seen... and I’ve seen lots of great ones in 25+ years as a coach and scout

 

lots of 5* recruits are busts... nobody knew Tom Brady would be Brady or he wouldn’t have lasted til the 6th

 

There is a college football forum here and I was the first to mention him... I don’t care if he was already highly rated... I wouldn’t make a thread about a 3* recruit calling him the best HS QB I’ve ever seen

 

he’s obviously a 5* recruit... and I’ve been following him since his FR year in HS... if I made the thread after that season There would still be no pleasing you Because he was  the #1 ranked freshman QB as well 

 

But guess what , good players are ranked high and every one has bust potential 

 

you called me out so it’s obviously a touchy subject for you...

I'm confused.  That thread was started last September.  The math doesn't add up.

 

I think the OP thought the Bills were going to be picking at #1 and Oliver was pegged at #1 way back then.

I guess I should have read just a little farther ;)

I saw him throw a football over a water fountain into a trash can at Stubhub Center in Los Angeles. Except, the water fountain was Deonte Thompson, and the trash can was Chargers' CB Trevor Williams.
