This isn't some ex-NFL football player who is an "analyst" for the sake of meathead football fans; this is a guy was an average joe like you or me who gets paid because he clearly knows A LOT on the subject.
Irvin on a per snap basis was a top 5 pass rusher especially on 3rd and 4th down.
How can you hate on that.
pm me for your team or any other espn insider article for that fact.
Fact, Kiper knows more about football and football players than me. I only said it several times. Fact, Kiper chooses to make poor and innaccurret assessments of players with that knowledge, something I think I can do a better job in than him if I take the time and effort he does.
In case you forgot to read what I wrote, I am not making a case on how much he knows, I am making a case on his process of evaluation.
Got this from and article.
Kiper began compiling scouting reports as a teenager, mailing them to NFL teams in hopes of getting advice. Sometimes, luminaries such as Don Shula or George Young would write back. When he was about 16, Kiper visited Baltimore Colts training camp and approached Ernie Accorsi, then the team's assistant GM.
"Most kids were trying to get autographs," Accorsi said. "Mel had draft lists. And he would stick them in my hand."
Originally, Kiper was aiming to land a job with an NFL team, perhaps as a scout. But while Accorsi twice tried to recruit him — as did others — Kiper was hired by ESPN despite a lack of TV experience.
Teams tried getting him and went to espn instead. So he chose not to be a scout.
I assume by your icon that you want to know how he rated the Seahawks. He gave them an A.
We're better than you
And we know it
