I offered a very objective, fair view of Pettigrew. Give props when props is due, but call a thing a thing. I didn't even start bringing the draft into the discussion until TL said the Lions didn't draft him to be a receiving threat.

You guys have made good points that the draft doesn't matter at this point. I shouldn't have taken the bait.

Taken the bait? Whatever. You feel that the team drafted him expecting him to be an explosive vertical threat. That's inaccurate.
ya you told us 50 times already..I too think its more than your saying. I believe they expected more..how am I wrong..
If you wanna believe everything they tell the media more power to ya. Who would ever draft a skill set you suggest in rd one.. only fool I can think of is millen/mayhew.
Seeing as how one of the "fools" you listed was the guy calling the shots, doesn't that kind of end the debate there?

Edit: Maybe you don't remember it because it was a few years ago, but the Steelers, who certainly aren't idiots, spent a first round pick on a non vertical threat TE when they took Heath Miller.

Not after going 0-16. Like he said, only Millen or Mayhew could be that stupid.

Pfft. Taking a 1st round prospect in the 1st round? Idiots.

Where he was drafted doesn't matter, TL

I agree completely.

The teams expectations don't matter, either. What matters is his impact on the game.
