I'm done with it though. I just wonder those who think Mario was a waste of a pick who should we have picked then? I don't care about it no more though, I'm done with it.

As for the strawman...I didn't build one. My first post was responding to Vinny calling Mario a workout warrior. I know what that means, it means a guy who merely puts up numbers in the draft workouts but never can and will in actual games. And all I said to that was "I don't think it is fair to judge guys after a season and a half."
Here's the strawman I was talking about:

There is nothing magic about three years for passing "final judgement" anyway. Why not 2? Why not 5? If Mario gets three years, I guess players picked later in the draft for potential should get more. It seems the ultimate conclusion following such logic is no one shoud be "judged" before three years.

Evaluating players is about passing judgement anyway. Just because you don't agree with the conclusion doesn't make the process inherently wrong.
