Definitely agree. Until some news articles came out this past season about Ballard going to watch Love, none of the posters here (or very very few) had even heard of him, let alone thought he was such a cant miss prospect that we had to have!
Also, the way that Ballard likes to keep things so secretive on his draft plans, i'd almost be willing to bet that part of this was just to throw everyone off of who he may truly be interested in, and to get the hype going so that he will be overdrafted by someone else, while we still get the guy we wanted.
Do i think that Love could be a good NFL QB? sure, he might be...but there is just as much a chance that he is a bust or backup at best... none the less, there are so many on this board that think he is the 2nd coming, that it is going to be fun to watch the meltdown if/when we do not select him as our QB.
Good point and I do agree that we shouldn't just believe (I'm changing your wording a bit) ANYTHING just because the media says so.
Again, my point was the difference for Fromm and Manning/Luck, even in the article you linked no one was questioning if Manning had a strong enough arm for the NFL, just that his arm strength was a weakness (and from some other articles I've read, there is speculation that was started by Leaf's agent and media being the media just parroted that rather than reviewing. And I've also said, I don't necessarily believe the reports about Fromm's arm, just that is what is being reported.
