32 Predictable Pieces of Public Promotion

32 Draft Platitudes. On Draft Day, all 32 teams have won! Since we know that is impossible, what do the comments below collectively mean? It means that the Draft is a media Public Relations show to sell their fans on hype and hope. Most of these guys will not be on the team in 3-4 years. The average NFL career is 3 years. Many won’t survive. Yet right now, every team has gotten the 1974 Steelers Draft. Not. We will go back 3-5 years from now and see how many of these platitudes were wrong. In the meantime, let’s sell those jerseys and fill those seats!

“I’m proud of this draft.” “I’m as excited as John. I think we’ve improved a whole lot.” (San Francisco)

“The way this whole draft turned out- it’s great to have 11 guys coming in this draft class.” (Seattle)

Did you notice who had the weakest platitude? That would be the Patriots. They don’t need P.R. when they win the Division every year and win Super Bowls.
