I have sat down to write a letter/story on just how wrong you are as you continue to insist that Jimmy Clausen is a better pro prospect than Sam Bradford.
The only problem is that after two hours of non-stop pounding on the keyboard I cant ever get to that last sentence.and that final period. The story goes on foreveras Robert Earle Keen best sings in his classic, The Road Goes on Forever. Because Mel, with all due respect, your notion is simply preposterous.
Such an easy argument for me. While I like you and have tremendous respect for your conscientious work ethic, I couldnt disagree with him more. And your persistence only makes me write more and more because the more I talk to people and learn the more I realize that Clausen is not in the same league as Bradford.
Maybe the best case is the fact that the Rams (No. 1 overall pick) and the Redskins (No. 4 pick) want Bradford, not Clausen. And as you know, theres a chance Clausen may not go until the second round.
Anyway, Ill stopfor now. But one day before the draft I will pull all my War and Peace writings together and fire out my Dear Mel letter. For now, please give the Clausen over Bradshaw nonsense a rest.
