The fact is Kiper has become arrogant and has been wrong too many times recently for me to take him seriously anymore. Watching draft day on ESPN nowadays is filled with him defending his "expert opinion" because he was wrong. I picked a more accurate first round last year than he did. Most of us here can pick a better draft than he can. Back in the day he was a pioneer, now he just goes by his reputation. That is not enough in today's NFL.
That simply isn't true. His information on players is usually pretty darn correct. His mocks are always off because that isn't his speciality.
This is a team who is battling several major injuries to
key players including Pro Bowl talents like Lee, Austin, Jenkins, Murray,
Carter and Ratliff. Other key starters missing include Costa, Smith, Church and
Coleman. That is 11 key players - that's half the starting lineup. Yet we still went 8-8.
