Okay, so everyone has had time to sleep on the Anger pick. The immediate reaction last night was devastation and embarrassment. This was shaping up to be one of Gene's most predictable drafts up until the 3rd round.
Some questions remain too. How much influence did Kahn have on the Blackmon pick? Was Gene giddy about getting to the 3rd round so he could "wow" the nation by drafting a punter?
Gene's quote about grabbing a "starter" over a backup was not rational when speaking of a punter. Someone please remind him of the many late-round "backups" who have flourished in the NFL.
Like it or not, it looks like the Jags have a great punter.
