2 things 1) Lombardi really likes our first rounder2) We were up to 56 Facebook likes yesterday and now we have 55. OUr draft coverage both gained us popularity and then lost it. Interesting.
hahah, i'd love to see who it was.
I'd put stock into Lombardi's opinion if I weren't convinced by multiple appearances on the B.S. Report that he's an idiot.Did you hear the latest one? Simmons asked him something like what the worst case/best case scenario for Cam Newton would be and the three guys Lombardi brought up were Vince Young, Akili Smith and Steve McNair. That's pretty pathetic. I'm surprised he didn't mention Culpepper, McNabb or Randall Cunningham.
Yeah I was surprised Simmons didn't say something.Normally I think Lombardi seems pretty bright though. You don't?
His whole Blue-Chipper concept is a joke. It's supposed to be the top 5 players at any position, but in the span of one podcast he'll list 10 RBs that are "blue." Also, if a guy has two good weeks he's immediately "blue." It just gets annoying.(Ha, the verification word for this comment is "drivel." Sounds about right.)
YEah, the blue chipper term is pretty loosely applied
Well after the movie Blue Chips I feel it just became a bandwagon term. I think DGP is a blue chip blogging prospect.
He's no prospect.
Speaking of Blue Chips: "They bought NEON!!"Do you think that movie broke the soul of not only Nick Nolte's character but also the man himself? He hasn't really been the same since.
Not much buzz going on right now. Had some breakfast a while back. It's amazing how quick you can go to a restuarant and get in and out for breakfast on a weekday. I was in Pete's Eggnest yesterday for a total of 12 minutes. Today was more like 20, but that's cuz i ordered a beer. Impressed?
me too. why do you think i ordered the beer?
Alright chumps, let's do this! I let the surprise wear off and now I really like the pick. Pete - did the Clayborn pick surprise you? Nobody considered that a reach?
And yes - for some reason I am a TJ Yates fan. Especially after reading that he has the fastest release of the QB's in the draft.
I was surprised they went with Clayborn, but some people really like him. For some reason I don't.Mayock just said he's concerned that Bowers may continue to slide since all these teams have passed on him once. If he does slide I'd love for the Hawks to take him.
Jim Mora is on NFL Network and said he got up early to watch some of the Royal Wedding. He loved the pagantry and said she looked beautiful and he looked very handsome. Man I'm glad we fired this clown.
I think this is my realistic(sorta) #57 wishlist - Ras-I Dowling, maybe Bowers, maybe Greg Little, Marvin Austin.Here is an interesting thought - what if Rodney Hudson is available?
I still think Hudson is an option. He can play G and maybe C. I'd like Greg Little too. I think he'll be awesome. Any of the guys you mentioned would be great picks, but they'll clearly pick some guy none of us even considered.
I too want to pick the Batman villain Raz A Guhl or whatever...I want a Guard. Let's just make a huge offensive line, and let best go mode.Also... are you serious about Mora Jr?
Yeah, that is for sure. Who saw Stephen Burton at SeaTac with Hawks gear? I also liked what I saw in Courtney Smith...Not that WR should be a priority over DL
No need to draft a WR, Pete's gonna turn Keary Colbert into a star this year.
Can't disclose my source, but if he's reading this maybe he'll expose himself.
A difference maker at DT would be a huge step towards NFL Domination
Any word of Forrest?
I think the Forrest buzz will build overnight.
where's he honestly ranked amongst punters?
ESPN has him #4
Not related to the draft, but have any of you been following this Roger McDowell stuff?
Yes, probably could use it's own post, but (un)fortunately for Roger our attention is devoted to football.
My favorite part is when he threatend the guy. He came at him with a bat and said "how much are your teeth worth?" hahahahahahahahah
That is classic. Can you imagine what Norm Charlton would have said?
Can you imagine what Norm MacDonald WILL say on Tuesday?
HERE WE GO!
Sounds like Oakland is trying to get up to take Kaepernick
Doesn't look like Dowling will slip any further
All of my realistic wish list might be gone within 5 picks of the second round.
Couple corners off the board to start the 2nd round. I like how they say Aaron Williams might switch to Safety, but he's not a good tackler. Do we see Ryan Mallett go here to Cincinnati?
Anthony Munoz looks like a mexican Dolph Lundgren
Just paint some black stripes on Dalton's head and it'll look like he's already wearing his new helmet
I sense Carson Palmer will be here next year. Not sure I love it, just a feeling I get
Whoa! Niners trade up! Who's it gonna be?
Niners have two women in the war room. Figures
Kaepernick, interesting. See you hell you dirtbag
I just went from a huge fan of CK to thinking his tattoos make him look like a pansy
He could be good, but I doubt it
I'm a big fan of this guy and not happy that the Cards so far have added Peterson and Ryan Williams
Lots of durability issues in the AZ backfield
Tennessee really loves the Pac-10
Bruce Carter's a good pick. As long as he comes back from the injury. Probably would've been mid-1st if healthy
I thought Jenkins would be available at 57
So I just looked at the picks between now and the Hawks. Barring any trades, Oakland is the only team I could see that would prevent Mallett from being available at 57. Still don't know if I want that to happen. If we don't resign Matt, I'd rather draft Mallett than go for Palmer
Texans apparently have decided that instead of covering the WRs they'd rather just sack the QB
Looks like the lockout is back in effect
The ol' 10-1 Defense?
I like the idea of Matt or Carson because next years QB class could be really good
Matt coming back would be my #1 choice. But maybe we could have Matt back for 2 years and Mallett developing
Will a safety or an ILB be taken first? They're the only two positions that haven't been selected yet (not counting FB, K or P)If the Lions take Da'Quan Bowers here, they could have the #1 and #2 picks from most early mock drafts
They might want Hudson
Tears of joy from Titus Young? Or just crying because he's going to Detroit?
NO! NOT DETROIT!
Why am I really starting to fear the Lions?
I could see Hudson going with one of the Bronco picks
this guy cries and carries on a little much for a 2nd rounder
Really good draft for the Broncos
YeahWho are the butt Rams going take? Wide receiver? Piss us off and take Austin?
Torrey Smith? I am ok with that, he seems average to me
Yeah, just don't take Greg Little please
Hmmm, OK. He could be pretty good
These picks are flying. Who is Indy trading up for?
Liking some of these players still on the board
Alright Pete, only 5 more picks to go, who do you think ends up with the Hawks?
I don't want to jinx it. I'll hold off for another 2 picks
Looks like even thinking about it jinxed it
I hear ya
There go 2 of the people I would have liked.
EFF - everyone I have wanted is being picked right before us, what a tease
With Hudson and Austin gone the guys i'd like:MallettGreg LittleWill Rackley
Or Mikel Leshoure
EP - they call that the VlMarcus Tubbs Syndrome.
Commercials on both channels. Never fails.
OK, so we now have a 3rd, another 4 and better spots in the 5 and 7
so we have the 11th pick of round 3 and 2 of the top 10 in round 4. Guess they just don't like anybody in this draft
think they'll let tez announce the 3rd rounder?
starting a new thread for the third round if anyone's interested
