No pete. The comparison is not spot on. It is not even close. The comparison is not "apt" as you put it. Not at all. Luckily pete, my eyes get ahead of everything. I've been doing this for years and I've been forced to watch Mizzou regional coverage. Maclin is nothing close to Marvin Harrison as players. I don't understand how this is escaping you.

he will need to work on running routes and getting open. Most of the Missouri offense operates within ten yards of the line of scrimmage.

In college, Mario Manningham seemed to be faster than every defensive back he went up against. But then Manningham went out and ran in the 4.5-4.6 range on his 40-yard dashes. Teammate and linebacker/defensive end Shawn Crable even out-ran him. He doesn't deserve to slide because pure vertical speed isn't the main reason why he blows by people with such ease; it's because of his amazing route-running skills and change-of-direction ability.

It is because of these abilities that Manningham compares well to Marvin Harrison of the Indianapolis Colts. He has a little bit better speed than Harrison but will probably not be quite as good due to his somewhat inconsistent hands and occasional fear of going over the middle leading to drops.

So pete, before you go taking about who's mouth is working before the brain, STFU man. Maclin could break 4.3 and is a poor route runner with slightly above average hands. He made his name by being a jack of all trades. When did you see Harrison returning punts or kicks, pete? When? Aside from them both being 6', they don't have much in common. Maclin is about 20lbs heavier and .3 of a second faster. Their games on the field don't compare at all.


I was ready to drop this until you had to try and be cute and clever without knowing a damn thing. Now pete, because you seem to think that your brain is so far ahead of anything, I went back through the archives, and I checked on the Anthony Gonzales. There is a thread entitled Anthony Gonzalez???? started 1-31-2007. Now, while you did post in that thread, you didn't once actually mention a single thing about Anthony Gonzales. http://www.texanstalk.com/forums/sho...thony+Gonzales


Pete, the earliest I can find a single post by you on this topic is 10-11-07, or well after the draft happened.

In fact, the first mention of Anthony Gonzales as a first round prospect from anyone on our board not quoting a professional, is beerlover. We had some of our tOSU friends tell us about Gonzales, especially matching up vs UT. However, I can't find a single post, pre-draft, with you suggesting Gonzales would go to the Colts.

Starts with the oldest mention of Anthony Gonzales and gets newer. It also will list posts with just Anthony (you will see Anthony Spencer some) and just Gonzales highlited in red.
