Football Savages / NFL Draft Prototypes: Quarterbacks | Football Savages
In last year’s class, or really any other class, a piece like this would have been much more interesting, but because of how atrocious this quarterback class is, two players alone make up most of this year’s “prototype.” That is not a slight to those two players. Rather, it is a shot at the rest of the class not being good enough to put up much of a fight against the top guys of the 2015 crop.

Noting the fast-diminishing utility of any further debate about the end of last Sunday's Super Bowl, New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick tried to recast the entire discussion this week as a kind of sordid, illegitimate theater. Criticism of Seattle's play-calling in the final minute, Belichick implied in a radio interview on WEEI in Boston, was not only wrong; it was completely devoid of standing. Such criticism, never mind that its rhetorical mass would block out several of the planets, is not "anywhere close," in Belichick's view, "to being deserved or founded." Such criticism, he went on, is "totally out of line," and (here's your money quote) such criticism is "by a lot of people who I don't think are anywhere near qualified to be commenting on it."
