2 things

1) Lombardi really likes our first rounder

2) 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.

Pete said...

hahah, i'd love to see who it was.

Erik said...

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.

Mr. F said...

Yeah I was surprised Simmons didn't say something.

Normally I think Lombardi seems pretty bright though. You don't?

Erik said...

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.)

Mr. F said...

YEah, the blue chipper term is pretty loosely applied

wanamaker said...

Well after the movie Blue Chips I feel it just became a bandwagon term. I think DGP is a blue chip blogging prospect.

Mr. F said...

He's no prospect.

Pete said...

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.

Pete said...

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?

Mr. F said...

depressed

Pete said...

me too. why do you think i ordered the beer?

Mr. F said...

to surpress

EP said...

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?

EP said...

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.

Pete said...

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.

Pete said...

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.

EP said...

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?

Pete said...

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.

Mr. F said...

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?

EP said...

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

Mr. F said...

No need to draft a WR, Pete's gonna turn Keary Colbert into a star this year.

Pete said...

Can't disclose my source, but if he's reading this maybe he'll expose himself.

EP said...

A difference maker at DT would be a huge step towards NFL Domination

Mr. F said...

Any word of Forrest?

Pete said...

I think the Forrest buzz will build overnight.

Mr. F said...

where's he honestly ranked amongst punters?

Pete said...

ESPN has him #4

Pete said...

Not related to the draft, but have any of you been following this Roger McDowell stuff?

Mr. F said...

Yes, probably could use it's own post, but (un)fortunately for Roger our attention is devoted to football.

Pete said...

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

EP said...

That is classic. Can you imagine what Norm Charlton would have said?

Pete said...

Can you imagine what Norm MacDonald WILL say on Tuesday?

Pete said...

HERE WE GO!

Pete said...

Sounds like Oakland is trying to get up to take Kaepernick

Pete said...

Doesn't look like Dowling will slip any further

EP said...

All of my realistic wish list might be gone within 5 picks of the second round.

Pete said...

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?

Pete said...

Anthony Munoz looks like a mexican Dolph Lundgren

Pete said...

Just paint some black stripes on Dalton's head and it'll look like he's already wearing his new helmet

EP said...

I sense Carson Palmer will be here next year. Not sure I love it, just a feeling I get

Pete said...

Whoa! Niners trade up! Who's it gonna be?

Pete said...

Niners have two women in the war room. Figures

Pete said...

Kaepernick, interesting. See you hell you dirtbag

EP said...

I just went from a huge fan of CK to thinking his tattoos make him look like a pansy

Pete said...

He could be good, but I doubt it

Pete said...

FUCK! Dont take Ryan Williams

Pete said...

I'm a big fan of this guy and not happy that the Cards so far have added Peterson and Ryan Williams

EP said...

Lots of durability issues in the AZ backfield

Pete said...

Bowers?

Pete said...

Tennessee really loves the Pac-10

Pete said...

Bruce Carter's a good pick. As long as he comes back from the injury. Probably would've been mid-1st if healthy

EP said...

I thought Jenkins would be available at 57

Pete said...

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

Pete said...

Texans apparently have decided that instead of covering the WRs they'd rather just sack the QB

Pete said...

Looks like the lockout is back in effect

EP said...

The ol' 10-1 Defense?

EP said...

I like the idea of Matt or Carson because next years QB class could be really good

Pete said...

Matt coming back would be my #1 choice. But maybe we could have Matt back for 2 years and Mallett developing

Pete said...

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

EP said...

They might want Hudson

Pete said...

Tears of joy from Titus Young? Or just crying because he's going to Detroit?

EP said...

NO! NOT DETROIT!

EP said...

Why am I really starting to fear the Lions?

Pete said...

I could see Hudson going with one of the Bronco picks

Bobby said...

Because your a pussy.

Pete said...

this guy cries and carries on a little much for a 2nd rounder

Pete said...

BATEMAN!!

EP said...

Really good draft for the Broncos

Pete said...

Yeah

Who are the butt Rams going take? Wide receiver? Piss us off and take Austin?

EP said...

Torrey Smith? I am ok with that, he seems average to me

Pete said...

Yeah, just don't take Greg Little please

Pete said...

Hmmm, OK. He could be pretty good

Pete said...

These picks are flying. Who is Indy trading up for?

Pete said...

Liking some of these players still on the board

Pete said...

Poop

EP said...

Alright Pete, only 5 more picks to go, who do you think ends up with the Hawks?

Pete said...

I don't want to jinx it. I'll hold off for another 2 picks

EP said...

Good Call

Pete said...

Looks like even thinking about it jinxed it

EP said...

I hear ya

Pete said...

There go 2 of the people I would have liked.

EP said...

EFF - everyone I have wanted is being picked right before us, what a tease

Pete said...

With Hudson and Austin gone the guys i'd like:
Mallett
Greg Little
Will Rackley

Pete said...

Or Mikel Leshoure

Mr. F said...

EP - they call that the VlMarcus Tubbs Syndrome.

Mr. F said...

Commercials on both channels. Never fails.

EP said...

Confusing trade

Pete said...

OK, so we now have a 3rd, another 4 and better spots in the 5 and 7

Pete said...

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

Pete said...

think they'll let tez announce the 3rd rounder?

Pete said...

starting a new thread for the third round if anyone's interested
