Agreed. There should have been a "None of the above" choice.
If I had to pick from the choices, I'd pick "the draft" -- but the draft sucks because:
The talking heads are really annoying and clueless;
High-round draft picks often end up being busts, resulting in undue excitement for us fans;
Low-round draft picks sometimes end up being useful, resulting in fan excitement later -- when football is actually played;
I'm not saying I'm not grateful that we picked up Wagner in the 2nd and Russell in the 3rd. But did anyone know
these guys would be that good at the time they were chosen? Maybe the Seahawks FO -- otherwise, no -- certainly not any of the talking heads.
So I just don't see the point. The talking heads tell you you made a great pick (see: Curry) or that you reached (see: Irvin), and they might be right, they might be wrong* -- but no one really knows until you play football
Watching draft-day is about as much fun as watching weather forecasts, and less accurate.
