Casserly, Lombardi, and Mayock are all I listen to. The rest of those guys are just background noise. It's all better than ESPN though. EsPN is just garbage.
I like Casserly and Mayock myself, Lombardi was a GM but Al Davis made all the calls for Oakland so his experience is limited. Davis isn't too bad and seems to do his homework but the rest are just background noise.
I was just watching NFL Network "Path to the Draft" and had to watch Brian Baldinger explain why Andrew Luck was the best pick because Bill Polians son worked for Stanford.
I then watched Charles Davis explain that "Robert Griffin" has knee injury issues. 1) he used the wrong name he was meaning Cedric Griffin, 2) Cedric signed with the Redskins and doesn't even play for them.
Not to mention La Confora. Most of the players they have know the game and how to play it, but are poor at analyzing and scouting talent and add little value as speakers
It seems Mayock is the only person you can truly believe or value his opinion. Thoughts on whether it's still reliable or not?
Haha, it's more reliable than any other football shows i've seen. Mayock knows his ****.
Sapp is having a bad few weeks. First there was the caused by claiming Jeremy Shockey was the snitch on the Saints. Now he's been declared bankrupt and his contract expires in August with NFLN. I'm no legal expert but does bankruptcy protect him from making any payouts should Shockey sue and win his case against him?
why do you still post here? anytime anything like this comes up, you immediately jump to defend any idiot who's been hired on tv, and have repeatedly told all of us we're morons who have no idea what we're talking about and that we should really just listen to the media, and only the media. so why bother? clearly our analysis is worthless. clearly you're much smarter than we are. why keep posting?
I agree with you. I dislike Mayock also and it seems like a lot of people like him because of the way he comes off. It's sort of like giving an answer confidently even though you're full of crap so the person believes you.

Just as a side note, I thought Lombardi gave a terrific insight when he said that scouts will really talk up a prospect till draft day, but when it comes time to actually pick the player the scout has been pimping, the scout suddenly starts putting out question marks just in case the draftee flops, he doesn't want to put all his eggs into the basket.
If a scout does that it shows either a lack of confidence or a fear of his boss. I would think most good managers want to hear good ideas from staff and the conviction behind it. If wrong then so be it. These scouts get paid FOR their opinions so if i was a GM i would want them to speak up and have solid convictions. There are some jobs where you have to accept you will be wrong sometimes and a scout would be one of them.
