  • New sports cliches you are totally sick of

    For me it is:

    "They need to draft a young wideout because so and so is getting a little long in the tooth."

    I have heard "long in the tooth" about 10000 times over the past month, and I am so sick of it!!!

    You might want to play the Emmitt Smith Anthology for all that.

      I want to thank that Emmitt Smith anthology for injecting new zest into my life. I actually try and use Emitisms in speech now.

        What's 'long in the tooth' mean? I've never heard of that expression.

          "franchise (insert position)" is the most anoying phrase IMO.

              "Best Player Available" when 99% of people have no idea what it really means.

                  People think BPA means that X player is better than Y player when it is so much more than that.

                    Y-players is 15 on BB

                    X player better than Y player according to _____ team/person

                      I think he's saying that not everyone's big board is the same.

                        Old.

                        Example: Isaac Bruce won't be able to perform very well for the 49ers because he's getting a little "long in the tooth". - I forgot who said that, but it was probably Charles Davis.

                          But that isn't what BPA means...you have to factor in the exact need of the prospect to get the correct BPA, as well as your draft strategy in general and where you have other players ranked.

                          It is more like Best Value Available.

                            Matt are you including offensive and defensive schemes here? I.e. if you're running a 3-4 you might not want a 4-3 DT even if he's the "BPA" because he doesn't play the 0 technique.

                              If thats how you define drafting BPA, then i would like to hear your definition on the "Drafting for Need" Philosophy.

                              And of course what separates the two philosophies.
