2011 NFL Draft E-mails - Hate Mail



  • From Corey Miller:

    Don't you guys find it a little funny that as soon as Mel Kiper mocks Cam Newton to the Bills, Walt scrambles to make a new mock that has the Bills drafting Newton? There's no viable source or any evidence that justifies Walt changing his pick suddenly to Newton other than Kiper's mock.


    --> I actually released my mock about 12 hours before Mel Kiper, so if you want to be technical, Kiper copied me :-). Maybe you should send him some hate mail instead.

    The pick makes sense. The Bills need a quarterback. Newton's stock is on the rise after his private workout. Reports indicate that the Bills like Newton. It seems like it's bound to happen.



  • From MikeHawk:

    Nobody knows what character concerns he is referring to about Ryan Mallett. This guy thinks he has inside information that he cannot reveal, thus making him feel special when people ask about his character concerns.


    --> I don't need to do that to make myself feel special. My mommy says I'm special, so I know I'm special.

    Oh, and here's an e-mail from Tom P. who actually agrees with me about Mallett:

    I am a current UArk student and as such love the Hogs, so that will get rid of the haters. If you want Mallett character issues, see if you can find information on Scantron gate, his reaction to it (it would make a 2-year-old blush), his locker room conduct at UMich and his tardy policy to classes. Also, the Hog offense did not miss a beat with Wilson under center, as he almost beat two top ranked teams while Mallett was out with a concussion.

    Mallett is this year's Ryan Leaf, Jamarcus Russell: a huge physical talent without the brains or drive to put it together. He feels entitled (more so than Clausen, we remember his reaction to the number issue UnderArmour Bowl back in 2007) and does not do the work needed to be elite. Mallett is not popular on a campus that loves its football. That should be the biggest sign.






  • From Vikingsfan28:

    your retarted.....the vikings will get a quaterback first round...


    --> Even if Cam Newton and Blaine Gabbert are off the board? That's smart. I can just hear the Vikings brass thinking, "Let's take a crappy quarterback we could just draft in Round 2 with the No. 12 pick! That'll make us awesome!"



  • From Aaron:

    OK WTF Ben Chppel should go in the 2nd round he is the 5th best QB in the draft (also ahead of cam newton) and Doss was the best WR in the big ten how is he not at 3rd round pick at least


    --> My advice is to drop the crack pipe and check into a drug rehab facility.





  • From PBSKids4000:

    Leonard Hankerson to the Colts is not going to happen guarenteed. Extremely stupid


    --> So, let me get this straight. The Colts need a receiver. Leonard Hankerson, if he's still on the board, would be the best player available in the middle of Round 2. Yep, no chance that happens. Extremely stupid indeed.



  • From Mel Kiper:

    I DRAFT GENIUS MAKE PIKE RITE NIQQA. I BEST IN BUSENESS AT MOCK DRAFT. HER MY PANTER PIKE ROUND 1. NICK FAIRLEY ROUND 2. AFTER TRADING STEVE SMTIH WE GRAB AJ GREEN ROUND 3. MARCEL DAREUS TO STRENGTHEN D LINE ROUND 4. CAM NEWTON HE SUCK ROUND 5. ROBERT QUINN DAMN NIQQA THATS A GOOD MOCK


    --> Wow, my site is so awesome. I even have Mel Kiper commenting on my mock draft!

    Hey Walt, I have the feeling that there will be more trading in the first 2 rounds than ever before since QB's will be at a premium and better teams may be willing to trade back because of the depth at other positions. Do you see many of the early second round teams trading into the back of the 1st round such as the 49ers or Texans trading up for Ponder or Dalton?

    Hey Walt- I always love your stuff and trying to mock a 7 round draft is like herding cats. As a packer fan my only issue is when I see huge reaches like noel devine in the 4th round. I feel the pack organization is 1 of the few that usually doesnt reach for need but takes players that unexpectedly fall such as Bulaga last year or Finley a few years back. They may take a rb like Vereen, Murray, Hunter, Green, in the 4th but I doubt Devine. Keep up the great work because soon we'll all be wrong.

    Hey Jay, a typo would easily explain a missing letter; that's not necessarily a grammar issue.

    Also, SomeFrenchGuy, I'll draw up a mock for last year. I'll let you suck my dick.

    Walt, you make fun of people who make grammar mistakes but you made one yourself in this article. You stated that Stephen Paea is "the prototype of what Wade Phillips look for." Unless somebody cloned him and there are now multiple Wade Phillips, it should say "what Wade Phillips looks for."

    I would like to say to anyone who wants to post some hate comment to try to write something clever. Walt's mocks always make sense, some comments don't...

    If someone find a mock draft which will be 100% right, i will s*ck his c*ck. (PS for stupid haters : that was ironic dumb b*stard, like many of Walt's comments)

    Thank you.

    PS' : I apologize for some hypotetical writing mistakes because of my name.

    Walt, do you think it is possible for the Broncos to trade Tim Tebow to the Panthers for Jimmy Clausen and the Panthers 2012 second round pick?

    Walter refused to answer them. My real name was posted 3 times. I didn't feel like putting it again, so I condensed my 3 posts into one long one.

    For which I still have gotten no response.

    Hilarious that you combat Mallett's wonderlic score which clearly proves you wrong about his intelligence with "well Chris Mortensen was wrong about Gabbert's score so he's probably wrong about this too. I heard he got a 9".

    Seems like a 9 would have been stated already by a media dog who wants to bring him down more, or it seems like you of all people would have loved to break that news.

    You refuse to admit you're wrong

    Okay man, you need to get your facts straight about Ryan Mallet. He's from texarkana, arkansas. if you know people from there they all take like rednecks with a ghetto accent. its just how he talks who cares? chris johnson talks like a dummy (read his tweets) and no one ever questioned his ability? and also everyone smokes weed now. EVERYONE.
