the media is not going to get these guys to go away from their boards. They are professionals, if the only force they have to be beholden to is the media, they have it easier than the other 31 teams.
just like you need a QB to win, a bad QB pick can set the franchise back 5 years... drafting Bradford at 1 is playing with fire, especially if Suh pans out.
