Gidion, as a Steelers fan I love that we are frequently the beneficiaries of the multitudes of reaches that happen every year. As an NFL fan and more specifically as a draft fan it's nauseating. I know these players are crap, but the GMs running these teams are willing to put crap on the field if it means dumb fans buy more tickets. That's not competitive football; it's dollar signs and good PR because of great grades from pundits. Meanwhile teams seldom improve and are often set back years because of these decisions. I love the rookie wage scale, but in a way it has allowed GMs to take more stupid risks because it means less financial backlash. It's all about the money.
And next year we may be looking at Matt Barkley and Tyler Wilson as our top 2 picks, when it's arguable that neither is the best QB in next year's class to begin with. You've got to be at least a little sickened by that as a football fan.
