Mocking The MockersApril 17th, 2017
As regular readers of this here website know, Joe has a serious issue with the mockers.
You know the type, like helmet-haired Mel Kiper. They change their mock drafts weekly, probably more than they change their underwear. Do a mock draft and stick to it! Quit throwing crap against the wall!
Apparently, Bucs AC/DC-loving general manager Jason Licht is amused by the mockers. He called them out in his pre-draft press conference today from One Buc Palace.
“The real experts are those scouts and the scouting department and the coaches that are doing the work right now,” Licht said with a wry smile. “So, we don’t get 10 mocks to get it right, we get one. We don’t have the luxury of doing multiple mocks and then end up at some point you can say, you were right. We only get one chance.”
Indeed! You do enough mocks, you are bound to be correct. You know, like a broken clock is right twice a day?
And if the mockers are wrong, which they often are, they don’t get tossed to the curb.
