    so everybody from the draft profiles to be a pro bowler!
    "On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me."

    Almost as comical as these two:

    Sanchez = Big Ben

    Stafford = Palmer
    I'm not cool enough to have a good signature

    Thanks for the laugh.

    Seriously though, I have read a lot of comparisons between Mark Sanchez and Carson Palmer. Of course, it could be more of the USC pedigree than anything.

    Crabtree and Calvin Johnson is just laughable. Even if both have great careers, and I think they will, CJ and Crabtree's games are completely different. Calvin is a 6'5 240 lb freak of nature while Crabtree is 6'1-6'2 and a more electrifying kick returner.

    Crabtree reminds me a LOT of Peter Warrick coming out of FSU. Similar build and skills, but hopefully he does a better job of putting it together.

    IIRC, Peter Warrick was on his way to developing to a quality NFL talent before a staph infection in his knee ended his career.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
