Along with the Sean Taylor scenario, he thinks he thinks (how does someone think they think anyway? don't you just think?) that Jacksonville and Seattle will play in the Super Bowl (I personally think they could make the conference finals) and that Darnell Dockett will win defensive rookie of the year honors. Does that mean it's going to happen because King thinks it? That's his opinion, he's entitled to it and others are entitled to challenge and question it. But, that doesn't mean King knows more than everybody else. What if John Clayton comes out and says "Taylor is thrilled to be a Redskin" What then? Isn't Clayton as qualified if not more so?

Besides, what was even the point of what King was writing? "I think Taylor isn't happy but it's not a big deal because Gibbs will work it out" Is that even a story?

dog pile on Drkstar! You guys are dyed in the wool, I will give you that.

I appreciate all the links in the news section. I am obviously not one who posts frequently and thanks for refreshing my memory as to why.

Peter King knows more then you Smoot because he is paid to. Its really simple bro. I have no more a fascination with his logic and opinions then you do of joe Crisp's. The difference to me is in the contacts. Say Joe, when is the last time you spoke to Drew Rosenhaus about Sean Taylor firing him? Or when is the last time you Smoot spoke with Taylor or is close friends as to his interest in playing in DC?

These questions are loaded I understand. But I will say that when it comes to reading pen and paper, I appreciate the amatures insight in here and I respect the opinions of the professionals more so. That includes by the way Lenny Pasta who I despise but completely respect from a knowledge base standpoint then anyone who posts to some fan discussion board. But that is of course, why we all continue to go back and read these journalists time and time again. Is it not?

And again, there is no right or wrong.... simply opinion. But apparently, you Smoot, have lost touch with that.

Dude, I'll even go a step further and say that a LOT (not all) of analysts talk out of their asses. A couple members of the media will label a player as something, and the rest of them will regurgitate it. Yes, they have access to places we don't, yes they appear on The Dan Patrick show, and Mike & Mike, but at the end of the day, I'd take an imformed fans opinion just as readily as an analysts. Espescially when it comes to fans of a specific team, that watch every down, play, etc. They're the ones that know what they're talking about.

That said, Taylor will be kicking some shit for the Skins next season, and will be a candidate for the DROY. If there's any merritt at all to this rumour, it's probably just a little posturing by him and his new (?) agent.

Like Crisp, I and a few others on this board have a lot of contacts having worked in sports and media. But I'm not here to name drop. That's not what this site is about.

Drkstar, it's apparent that you don't post much because you seem incapable of having your own opinion or respecting anyone else's. You just like to drink the Peter King Kool-Aid.

Hold me back Matty!

That is as off base as I was calling folks nimwits earlier Smoot. If it makes you feel better bro, you win. You are right. I am wrong.

There, you feel better now. Do me a favor jackoff, go call your contacts and tell them how smart you are.

The whole reason I am under your skin there skippy is because I do have my own opinion which differs from yours. If I took the "warpath" kool aid you and I would be chummy but I challenge the board, its members and there opinions and I am a crazy asshole? Nah bro, just different.

Your flamethrower at me shows you are not about moderation but about making someone feel like an ass for not buying your story. Sad really.... cause folks around here respect you for it and even worse, because you feel its your duty... shame.

Hmmm, Maybe we should ask Peter King. Who knows what OTHER contacts he may have. Now THAT would be something we could all respect.
