    Re: Monday Musings: Jake Knott will make the NFL pay

    Looking forward to hearing from some of our resident former LBs. What do they think of the results for Klein and Knott?

    Like CW, I was surprised that our guys weren't taken earlier. Down the road, they are going to make some GM a genius for grabbing them (even though he should have done so earlier).

    You should have been in this little beefsteak town on Saturday night. The fire dept. made steak history.

    I agree with what you said, except I can't become a fan of pro football, because their ignorance obviously baffles to the point of contempt. Jake Knott, I played a little more football than Chris, apparently, and rarely have I been impressed by a player like I was with him.

    If he can stay healthy, I have no doubt Knott can play in the NFL.

    Well of course they are going to pay him. He's not going to play for free.

    Re: Monday Musings: Jake Knott will make the NFL pay

    Is it just me or does this article come off as a little butthurt?

    Knott will do what he has to do with his shot he has in the NFL. Really doesn't matter now if he has drafted or the UDFA route.

    Re: Monday Musings: Jake Knott will make the NFL pay

    The point of the article was the pro-football people are stupid. You can agree or not, but the article isn't about whether Knott will make it or not, what route he has to take. He was better than most of the players that were signed ahead of him. Normally I don't talk about football at all, but Knott was a great player.

    Butthurt might be too harsh, but homerish? Definitely.


    I don't bring my own opinions, just attack others.

    Re: Monday Musings: Jake Knott will make the NFL pay

    I am surprised that Knott wasn't drafted given his stats, his instincts, his smarts, his work ethic, his big play ability, and the testimony of some folks with pretty good NFL credibility. Surely, I thought a few of those characteristics would lead to a late round draft pick regardless of the injury.
