Skip Bayless is a jerk. He probably said it in reaction to a question from a Browns fan or something like that.

He likes to take a contrary point just so people can disagree with him and he can then fill time in his show. He makes Mark Madden look like an optimist. Honestly,
Bayless and his act are so contrived and old that its unfortunate he gets airtime.

I'll believe more in something I read in the national enquirer more than what comes out of Bayless mouth.

Now I really think that the Chiefs on paper had the best draft. But only time will tell about how good our draft was. I look at it this way.
RB Mendenhall is gonna be a very nice selection and a great change of pace for Willie. This is gonna pay very big dividends for Willie and him not having to carry the ball over 300 times again.
WR Sweed I hope will come in here and be our 3rd reciever this season and within the next 3 years or sooner, he should be our #2 guy with Holmes as our feature reciever. Blayless had Sweed as his #1 all the way up to the draft, so take that as U wish.
LB Davis is a project but you cant argue the stats he had at UCLA, the guy just sacks the QB.
OT Hills was taken a little late for the Steelers to get help here, this pick could be the worst pick for the Steelers in '08
QB Dixon= The All-New "Flash" He will be exciting to watch with all the gadget plays the Steelers like to use... I just cant wait to see the DIxon walking off the field with all the linemen still lined up and see how many TO's will be taken not knowing what is going on and the ball is snapped directly to Parker or Mendenhall or Moore.
Humpel and Mundy maybe can give us some special teams play and depth.
Grade:B

Other than Wilson throwing for a 2pt convert last season.....there were no "gadget plays".

I believe you are looking for Arizona or Atlanta....thats where all the Mularkey, Whisenhunt and Tomfoolery went to a couple seasons ago.

I think we had the best draft, because each person we drafted has the chance to wear the Black and Gold...and that my friends, is the best possible situation for any football player.
