    Edited for Violation

    First off let me say I'm not trying to make an attack or question his football knowledge, I've just noticed that a lot of people are on the Derek Anderson train and he was the first person that I noticed who was supporting the notion that is top QB. I remember certain instances in the past where he has either been completely wrong or perhaps been a bit ambitious with his predictions.

    Players that I recall him hyping before or shortly after the draft:

    Philip Rivers- I remember him declaring Rivers as the best quarterback in the draft, much better than Big Ben and slightly better then Elisha.

    Derrick Strait - Called him a shut down corner.

    Randy Starks - For one reason or another he absolutely loved this guy.

    My personal fav was his comparison of Mike Williams to Lawrence Taylor.

    We had just signed Jmac that offseason and GJ&H stated that a player like Williams would justify switching the offense to a base 3 wide out formation much like the Giants switched their defense to better suit Lawrence Taylor his rookie season.

    GJ&H knows his stuff. He's had hits and misses just like the rest of us.

    Completely understood, infact I'd be a fool to assume I know more than he does.

    However, the point of this post was not to point of his errors, but to encourage others to find their own opinions instead of just taking his and running with them.

    For sure. Point taken. But there are plenty of draftniks.

    Hell, if you want a list, look at GGI's hit squad from last year. That guy basically bat a thousand.

    You forgot his hyping of Reggie Bush

    If drafting was so easy there wouldn't be so many inept and former GM's roaming the earth as we speak.

    I thought he was bigger on Big Ben than Eli and rivers.. that could have been somebody else though.

    First off, when you're a guy like Ham that puts himself out there on evaluating and talking about so many players you are likely to be wrong a time or two...

    with that said, my all time favorite of his muffs would have to be Rashaun Woods. i think in the same class as Roy Williams. he was absolutely in love with this kid. The second coming of Jerry Rice is what you would think he was gonna be.

    I'm confused. Is Alf calling out Ham or not?

    I love reading Ham's stuff. Today when he went after Ray Lewis, I had a great time reading along. Lots of fun.

    I've never noticed it but he does, minus the mullet.

    Gastineau could probably suit up now and be one the the better D-Linemen we have.

    Agreed, and he's had so many more hits than misses over the years. Not to mention his power rankings are required reading.

    As a Pats fan, my favorite miss though was his insistence that letting Vinatieri walk in free agency would come back to haunt the team. The Ghost has been money so far and routinely boots the ball in the end zone on kickoffs. Vinatieri, on the other hand, is lucky to get his kickoffs inside the 10 and is now missing chip shots in the clutch.

    Ham knows his stuff no doubt about it, but like many draftniks he's had hits and misses.

    For example, I remember him talking up Osi when most hardly knew who this guy was.

    And of course everyone remembers him going crazy over Bush. He wasnt the only one off on that one

    When it comes to the draft, I leave that up to others with good knowledge of the situation. Rutgers, GJ&H, Come back to MY, etc., all know more about it than I do. I just do not follow the college game closely enough.

    When it comes to the pros and in particular the JETS, I let common sense do my thinking for me. There's no one person on this site who has molded my opinions to some sort of conformity. I make my own opinions.

    And just like everyone else, I hit and miss on my opinions.

    All this does is confirm I'm human, just like everyone else.......

    Ham posted some commentary yesterday and over the weekend...he sounds great...

    I for one enjoy his stuff and LOVE the power rankings...

    I wish I had the knowledge to even talk about half the stuff he does and the cojones to put it out there with all the self-proclaimed experts on here!

    Ihave neither the knowledge nor the cojones!

    Although I dont know where your going with the Anderson thing, he looked pretty good to me against a surging Ben Roethlisberger...

    I thought picking this week to bash Ham was a little odd, but I can only assume you dont know what he has been through....
