Best of WCG Draft Open Threads

You hate me, you love me, either way, you got me. - USA TODAY Sports Images

I guess it depends on your definition of "best," but you can only do so much with the source material.

Well, folks, the NFL Draft is over, and the Bears ended up with a bunch of guys that will play like Hall of Famers in training camp. Okay, sure, that's not true, but Phil Emery took some risks in this year's draft, but only time will tell whether or not they paid off.

This is the WCG Best of the NFL Draft Open Threads. What we have below is a collection of the funniest, craziest, most rec'd comments we could find from our draft threads. Okay, actually just from the round one threads and a little bit from the day two pre-game thread, because those alone totaled around two thousand comments.

As expected, there were plenty of people none-to-pleased with the Bears pick of Kyle Long in the first round, with plenty of salty language thrown about. Anytime you see parentheses, I'm cleaning up the language for you or providing some context for the comment. Overall, not a bad performance. All comments are verbatim and sic'd. Timestamps prove that, yes, that was you freaking out. Apologies if the formatting's weird.

Geno Smith does not go past us by DutchBear on Apr 25, 2013 | 9:32 PM

Raiders are geniuses...they still get Sharif Floyd by YouBlewwIt on Apr 25, 2013 | 9:35 PM

Eifert goes here to NYJ by mike.faust.9 on Apr 25, 2013 | 9:42 PM

Now the Bears' pick is going to be REALLY interesting (At pick 17) Best 3 QBs are still available. And they are Geno Smith, Matt Barkley, and Ryan Nassib. What team could trade up from round 2 for any of those guys? by Erik Christopher Duerrwaechter on Apr 25, 2013 | 10:06 PM

Pittsburgh I predict will take Tyler Eifert by Johnnynumber5 on Apr 25, 2013 | 10:07 PM

(At Bears pick) alright here we go. Last year I called Alshon let’s get Geno this year!

by suckmyditka on Apr 25, 2013 | 10:18 PM

They (Bears) HAVE To Take Floyd What a steal if they get him!!!! He’s rated 3rd-4th player on the Board of most mock drafters. by chris.walsh.5095110 on Apr 25, 2013 | 10:20 PM

So I think I've decided Emery can't (FRAKKING) draft

good lord, a 2nd round OG when Eifert and Ogletree were avaliable is JA still here?

by Edward_Thefirst on Apr 25, 2013 | 10:30 PM

So what's the plan tomorrow Phil? Perhaps try and draft a 7th rounder in the 2nd?

Having a complete stroke here.

This pick is even worse that anything I could imagine. THIS GUY AT 20???? WE COULDN’T GET A (deliciously) BETTER TRADE FOR THIS (STINKY) SECOND TO THIRD ROUND SCHMO? I miss Jerry Angelo. Emery seems even more arrogant and worthless.

by Just Dave on Apr 25, 2013 | 10:35 PM

GREATEST OVERREACTION EVER!

Great we are the (dagum) laughing stock of the (farting) league in this draft.

by tfrabotta on Apr 25, 2013 | 10:30 PM

And in case you thought things get better with time…

Im still (plucking) pissed by tfrabotta on Apr 25, 2013 | 11:14 PM rec (1)

A voice of reason? Also, the first positive comment on the pick goes to…

This is actually a great pick for the Bears He’s big, strong, and fast. Takes care of a serious need at Guard. by Erik Christopher Duerrwaechter on Apr 25, 2013 | 10:29 PM

Any more positive people? Anyone? Bueller?

Good. Our OLine better now. by crackedcactus on Apr 25, 2013 | 10:29 PM

Well we ALL bitched about the FO ignoring the Oline So they address it and we all bitch, I think we all need to take a deep breath

Agreed . by MidWayMonster54 on Apr 25, 2013 | 11:14 PM

Sorry ya’ll. Dave’s usually not like this. He’s very cheery. Occasionally funny, even.

So because we have no actual way of seeing into the future other than to go by EVERY FRICKING MOCK, EVERY FRICKING DRAFT GURU, AND EVERY PROSPECTUS. We’re wrong to be upset. ok, i get it. by Just Dave on Apr 25, 2013 | 11:23 PM

I’ll be taking him home now

I'm out. Final thought? This was a stupid (frocking) pick. Period.

by Just Dave on Apr 25, 2013 | 11:37 PM

Excuse us while Dave gets some re-education training… Okay, we’re back!

I didn't mind the actual pick... by Just Dave on Apr 25, 2013 | 11:43 PM

I liked Physical Education, but don’t know if I trust it.

" I trust PE, more than anyone of the media clowns on picking talent, cause if they were any good at picking talent, they’d be a GM, not a sports reporter."

does this mean jerry angelo is a sports reporter?

How long does it take to make a flip-flop? Nine minutes

No Doubt It's the Worst Pick of the 1st Round Given the Alternatives

He’s got some upside athletically and great bloodlines, but C’mon Man! You could have traded down and got him later. And to pass on Floyd, who was CLEARLY the BPA, was a monstrous mistake. Worse, he’s now a Viking and we have to play him twice a year. by chris.walsh.5095110 on Apr 25, 2013 | 11:07 PM rec (1)

Not sure about that Pugh going to the Giants was an even bigger reach according to ratings. by Frontera on Apr 25, 2013 | 11:12 PM rec (1)

You've Got A Point There Hayden at 12 was a serious reach too. But you expect that of Oakland. by chris.walsh.5095110 on Apr 25, 2013 | 11:16 PM rec (1)

Apparently, no one.

Who wants Ryan Swope in the 2nd? by Kuma9 on Apr 26, 2013 | 12:20 AM

You new ‘round here, boy?

I didn't realize my lack of anger about this pick would start another argument. haha by boudyreau on Apr 26, 2013 | 9:39 AM

And this is how quickly a player’s draft stock can tumble…

Eifert's an alien. Brown is actually 2 midgets stacked on top of each other.

Still not sure how this got 3 recs…

Awful

couple more first rounds like this and the emery regime will be gone in 3 years. rams gets a 3 and a 6 from falcons. is the very slim chance that long isnt around at 30 (falcons orig pick) worth two picks. this makes me sick. totally agree with the "outsmarting" comment. shea was example 1, and this is example 2.

by blackblue44 on Apr 25, 2013 | 10:51 PM rec (3)

um, its year 2 of emery regime already. A couple more 1st round like this would result in way more than 3 total years. by T.J. Shouse

Epic rant… succinct followup

would I draft Teo at 50? Maybe, if I was an NFL GM. But, I’m not.

And I don’t like seeing what happens to my fellow fans who are also NOT general managers when thier carefully constructed ideas about what "should" happen come crashing down upon them.
Such angst! So many wishes and hours of contemplation… wasted! Tossed aside like a bridesmaids dress or a christmas tree, loved intensely one day, discarded as trash the next.
Personally, I prefer "Phaith in Phil" and reccomend it to the bretheren. Its a much less angrifiying philosophy than it appears some of you have. :-)
