I really hate that stuff you didn't say

    Not really a comment on Petit-Frere, but I'd guess that 2013 Khalil Mack, a college RS senior who was about 7 months away from being the #5 overall draft pick, was a tougher blocking assignment than 2018 Anoma.

    Easily the most moronic comment I've read today, but it's early.

    Not really. Most HS OL are dreadful at pass protection in high school, while premiere pass rushers possess the athleticism and quick step to beat their underdeveloped (if developed at all) competition on the OL.

    If we're comparing the assignments, this guy has a tougher one. If we're comparing the players themselves, that's obviously another matter.

    I took your comment as comparing blocking Mack vs blocking Anoma. I'm not sure how to take it any other way lol.

    It wasn’t my comment, buddy. :biggrin:

    But the comment didn’t say they were similar. It was that blocking a RS Senior soon to be #5 overall NFL draft pick was tougher for a young college kid than blocking a high school DL the same age as you.

    That’s @zincfinger ‘s opinion and @jwinslow offered up another. Calling out another poster as moronic probably isn’t the way to navigate these boards, though.

    I realize it wasn't your comment, pal :) I was replying to you asking me to explain.

    I don't have any quarrels with the distinction you made. The original poster did not make that distinction, but rather made a direct comparison between a #5 NFL draft pick and a HS senior. If the distinction you mentioned was implied, I'm sorry for the snide remark. It seemed as though he was dumbing down a comment to make a point no one would argue.

    What part of a comment directly saying blocking Mack would be tougher than Anoma makes you think the poster was saying they are comparable?

    Well this sure has jumped the shark.
    Yeah, it didn't say that at all
    Meaning both guys may yet be studs. No mention is made of the challenge of blocking the two. At most, he referenced two situations where the DE obliterated the OT.

    At which point zinc picks up and runs with it in order to rebuke the heresy that was never stated:
    ShowMe didn't say this either.

    So now what happens? Does someone else pile on Showme like we do on BP? No, powerair calls out zinc, who not only didn't say it either but beat powerair to the punch and was also rebuking the same non-existent statement.

    I'm not saying he made a comparison between the abilities of Mack and Anoma. My original comment was intended to mean it goes without saying blocking Mack would be more difficult than a HS senior. I wasn't following how zinc came to that point from what showmebuck said.

    I certainly apologize for being rude, just get annoyed when things are taken out of context.

    I thought showmebuck made a good point that was taken out of context or misunderstood.
    Jwin pretty much summed it up (I think) haha.
