    10 rookies we trust most in the clutch

    I found an article on the Bleacher Report listing their top ten rookies they would trust most in the clutch.

    at no. 10 we have Janoris Jenkins. Good to see, nice hes getting noticed.

    then things get weird...

    at no. 3 they have Justin Tucker, Ravens kicker. They claim that he would already be the best rookie kicker in memory if it wasnt for this next guy....

    Yup at no.2 is Blair Walsh! Eh, im sorry but were is Legatron?

    So they have Tucker and Walsh over Greg, does this make sense to anyone?

    This is one of many reasons that most B/R articles are laughable. Who cares what one of their writers thinks anyway, as AV has said in a previous thread, Anyone with a laptop can be a writer there.
    We all know of Legatron's abilities and he has been getting praise from much more reputable analysts than "some guy with a laptop". Besides, neither of those kickers ranked has a cool nickname like Legatron

    I read that article earlier, and went to the comments and 2/3-1/2 of them all all were asking why Legatron wasn't on the list.

    Also, if any of you didnt read MMQB by P.King this week, he tells how Percy Harvin won special teams player for the month of September, but as good as Percy had been, Legatron should of won the award easily.

    Already really tempted to make a legatron jersey.

    I feel a lot of b/r articles are more subjective than objective

    Building on the point Av brought up

    The only nicknames I can come up with them are negative. Blair Witch and Justin...

    well you know the rest.

    Easily. He broke records and has yet to miss a FG. 58 and 60 in the same game? By a rookie? Incredible.
    I guess its because kickers never get any love whereas Harvin has so many admirers in the media that its almost embarrassing considering what he's actually done.

    Re: 10 rookies we trust most in the clutch

    Once there was this young art critic who walked into a gallery that had just received some of the top pieces from one of the finest artists in the world. Included in the collection was the artist's masterpiece. As the young art critic approached the masterpiece he noted an elderly gentlemen standing in front of the piece quietly soaking in every nuance and detail.

    After several minutes of observation, the young critic broke the silence with, "I'm just not seeing what's so great about this piece. I must conclude this master is quite overrated." Without removing his eyes from the masterpiece, the elderly man replied, "Boy, it's not his talent that's on trial here; but rather your ability to see it."

    Bleacher Report, it's not Legatron's position as the top rookie that's on trial here; but rather your ability to see it.
