I've railed long and hard against the hilarious group known as Scouts Inc. It employs one Jeremy Green who was one of the worst talent evaluators in the HISTORY of the NFL when he presided over the worst set of draft disasters in history. They also employ Keith Kidd, and ex-Patriots employee. It makes one wonder why he's no longer employed there.
Scouts Inc. has long dissed the Colts, for example their hilarious criticism of the drafting of Tony Ugoh (they questioned his 'commitment' to football because he threw shot put in the off season at Arkansas). Today, they chose to rank the #1 scoring D in football, the #2 passing D, and the #8 defense in yards per carry....FIFTH...out of teams in the playoffs.
Their scoring system is stupid, as I mentioned yesterday. Today, the ranked the Colts and Bucs as having the 11th and 12th D lines and 6th and 9th ranked linebackers. Both teams allow fewer yards per carry than every team but Washington and the Giants (Colts and Giants are tied, Tampa is behind just Washington). Oh, and the Giants and Skins ranks? The Skins are 10th in everything and the Giants got a #1 one line ranking but 12th LB rating.
Upon what criteria are they judging defenses? The Colts and Bucs have suspect D-lines and LBs? Then how are they shutting down the run?
Scouts Inc. must think that Bob Sanders is some kind of reanimated demon from the realm of the undead.
Ok, so maybe they aren't so stupid after all.
