I did mention his unbelievably great contested catch % because it was by far and away the best in all of college football. That is a good thing. He also had the best completion rate by far of all WRs in college football. You have noted how that is good yourself. I also pointed out how he seldom had to make contested catches because he almost always got open. He's also very fast. Not Tyreek Hill fast but faster than 90% of the WRs in the league. Put all that together with his best hands in college football with volume and we got something far better than average. You are just being an ill tempered jerk in this discussion with me.

Yes Seriously regarded by the vast majority as the 4th best Wr in this draft and the vast majority considered this the best WR draft in history.


I don't care if you know or not. I"m suggesting you stop using it to disagree with people. I gave you the descriptions next to examples of your usage of it so you are sure to understand you have been. Now hearing you already know just tells me you aren't someone to expect a decent discussion with.

Best Hands of the draft! Best WR draft Eva! Consensus by everyone! Oh my god.

Any claim of this being the best WR draft ever, right now, is maybe the most laughable claim I have ever heard. Yet you still are trying to defend this statement. But if it does end up proving to be a great WR draft after a few years of proving so won't you feel foolish claiming they had to spend a FRP on a 6-1 WR if there were so many in this draft to choose from?

Claiming I'm being ill tempered sure is righteous from the guy who came out guns blazing saying I'm embarrassing myself and numerous other kind descriptions. This is classic you. Call someone names and disagree in order to get them talking to you.

I wrote you off last summer for doing the same thing. You've stepped in it again already in May so good riddance.

Edit: This is what your stains on the page look like to me now.

That's just the top section of this page alone. Enjoy yourself.

Jedzz I give you the benefit of the doubt and reply to you despite your being known as a negative Jerk. Klomp is one of the nicest guys any of us will ever meet and you go off on him. If you keep me on ignore and never see this that is fine with me. I just want to go on record as calling you out. You're not the victim you are the antagonist.
You also made up lies about what I said. Where did I ever say we HAD to use a FRP on a WR regardless of height? I never once said we had to use a FRP on anybody. I gave the bigger alternatives. I never said we shouldn't have taken Mims, Claypool or Pittman. I just pointed out that none of the 32 teams in the NFL determined any of those three worthy of using a FRP on. I don't even know if any of the first round WRs were taller than Jefferson. He may have been the tallest one. You are unbelievably obsessed with the height of our newest WR even though he is taller than most.
The part of your post I bolded I stand behind. Those were all agreed to by a strong majority of the media. When I talked about you embarrassing yourself it was in regard to your claim that Jefferson was a body catcher. That is pretty embarrassing to say when he was known to have the best hands in all of college football or darn close to it.
I just looked up the height's of the first round WRs in the 2020 draft.

Ruggs 5'11" 2.25" shorter than Jefferson
Jeudy 6'1" .25 shorter
Lamb 6'2" .75 taller 191 pounds. 11 lighter than Jefferson.
Reagor 5'11" 2.25 shorter
Aiyuk 6"0" 1.25 shorter

I just found Jefferson's combine height listed at 6'2". I'm pretty sure that was rounding up from his actual 73.25 inches, but maybe they were rounding up on all of them.

So that's another area you IMO are embarrassing yourself in. Claiming that Jefferson is too short when he was the 2nd tallest of all the first round WRs.

There is no back and forth.

Agree, we need sports back. The Vikings should have Rick on the home web cam sharing all his wisdom during this time. They need a Mike Tise show type of thing at the least. Not that I'd watch.

Return to Minnesota Vikings
