So, there are some on our board saying Brad isn't that good of a mid blah blah blah. Others think he's actually one of the better players in the comp. Some ppl have questions about his durability.

Lets put it all down now and we'll see who makes the best call and therefore had the most informed call as to his value.

I think his durability issues are largely behind him. We (the AFC) finally discovered surgery in the last three years. Especially we discovered you could do it in and at the end of season, rather than late in the preseason after a failed period of trying to rest. I think Brad will play a lot of games from here forward.

As for his ability, let me remind you of Henderson, Wright, Lyons et al. I believe our gameplan has made our players look sub par. So I think Brad will shine in a team where he isn't blunted by our past game plans. Some think his kicking is questionable. I think its pretty good. We let our forward line be packed with defenders, so it makes it difficult for any kicker kicking to our forward line to look bad. He'll go elsewhere and shine. I don't have a prob with any step the club took up until not matching. I think he was disgruntled and even going to hold us over a barrel by making it impossible for us to trade him anywhere but for that, I would've even been happy to give up pick 1 for the purposes of picking him so no one else could and showing what happens to people who hold us over a barrel

So in summary, I reckon the records will show we got massively dudded.

Bicks saying earlier that we might get a good player with the pick so should wait and see, but then says that you can't have a crystal ball on how Brad will go at the new club and may have more injuries as he gets older.
