[QUOTE=Come Back to NY;3526106]there's a saying operaposter, something about if you don't learn from the past...(edit- as stated above...)
the short term discussion is where cody will be drafted next month and where he deserves to be selected....it is impossible to state any case without using examples...previous examples of how players performed in college and in workouts are quite relevant- there's a reason why scouts have specific and detailed ht/wts, body types, test results, etc for each position....like I've stated previously; some people throw darts at a board- some don't....[/QUOTE]
I can see what you're saying especially in the context of player evaluation its just that I worry such a dependence on comparison can get out of hand.
player x reminds me of player y, player y was a loser player x will be a loser too. Not that it doesn't have a place but I find it limits actual discussion on Cody, probably part of a longer discussion in multiple threads, but found the overdetermination on analogy to diminish your point - one I agree with, not that a forum discussion has to be highly articulate and sophisticated, I guess I came to expect a higher level of argument from you and was a little disappointed is all...
