Spencer is a better pass rusher than Ingram. Spencer was more productive in college and got more sacks. Spencer has better athleticism. Spencer did better in the pre-draft process (and will have better Combine numbers once Ingram does it). All the scouting reports about Spencer talked about his explosion off the ball and his elite pass-rushing skills. With Ingram the book is he is slow to react and no one says he has elite or plus pass-rushing skills. There is absolutely no objective basis from which to conclude that Ingram would be more productive than Spencer. All of the objective evidence indicates the contrary.
[View Full Quote]Drafting Ingram to replace Spencer is a waste of the 14th pick because the defense gets worse by playing Ingram instead of Spencer. The smarter thing to do is improve at Guard, CB or D-line where the team would be better when we draft someone at 14.
I don't know exactly has caused your posts to spiral down to venemous drivel lately, but can you please consider coming back to the world of posters who actually contribute thoughts rather than someone who tries to place them in around insults and attacks? No one minds responses and critques, but the borderline personal attacks you have posted lately are beneath what I used to think about when your name came up. When you were throwing out insults at idgit the other day I just chalked it up to your having an off day, but that is obviously not the case.
I live in South Carolina. I am in a neighborhood with a massive amount of SC alumns and watched every single game of Ingram the last two seasons. All of them. I was offered tickets a few times to watch them live, but could not spare the travel time due to some things I had already planned with my kids. Now, your comments make it seem that you are an authority on Ingram's game-by-game performances, so I would welcome your thoughts on a few of them. How about the ECU, Auburn or Georgia game? Please provide me with a breakdown of his play and your thoughts on his highs and lows. I would not ask but for the fact that your attempts to insult must be accompanied by some scathing reviews of his play on a game to game basis.
I think Dallas will resign Spencer. I would welcome it. I would want Ingram only if they can't resign him and they need a replacement. Guard and DB are the first two options on my list, so I am not sure why you even posted your comment about the order of preference unless you simply did not read my post through. Having said all of this, I also stand by what I said with Ingram. I am not going to add any additional thoughts on why until I get the requested game by game critique. Given your scathing response, you must have watched a lot so I am very interested in your negatives in his game on a weekly basis.
