But it's funny. :D

Most mock drafts seem to have Detoilet taking either Joe Thomas (OL, Wisconsin) or trading down.

Looks like Briggs and the Bears #31 pick may be going to Washington in return for their #6 pick. Can see the Bears then drafting Branch or Okoye on the DL.

Now that the Niners have re-signed Gore there remains one loose thread to deal with, Smiley OG. Looks like we have structured all the deals with an eye for minimising any adverse impact on the cap should things not work out. What a delight, given the mis-managment of the previous two regimes that we now have a coherent business strategy.

Oh, and Monday night football to open the new season too. Quietly optimsitic for a sorjourn into the play-offs next season.

Washington throwing money at a problem, what a surprise. :rolleyes:

What on earth ever happened to them? They used to be an example of just how you should run a professional sports team.

Didn't work last off-season, throwing money

I'm not even convinced about Gibbs anymore.

They have been a little scatter gun with their player acquisitions over the last couple of years. I'm just thankful that SF have finally found a decent front office.

Why don't they announce all the fixtures in one go?

I'm going to be in Texas at Christmas and want to go to a Cowboys match and I'm patiently waiting for the THIRD installment of fixtures... (firstly, the London match; secondly, the opening day plus Thanksgiving TV matchs; thirdly, the rest of them)!

For god sake NFL, sort it out :D

Strathclyde Eagle 29-03-2007 12:29 AM

That's an extremely valid point. It annoys me no end.

Chief Brody 31-03-2007 07:23 PM

Looks like Chicago feel they are being a little railroaded into the trade (from Briggs I presume) so have baulked at present. I would not be surprised that come draft day a trade was actually made though.

saxoneagle 05-04-2007 04:41 PM

Seems now the pre-season fixtures have been announced but STILL no sign of all the regular season games.

F*ck sake!

saxoneagle 09-04-2007 03:22 PM

I heard on the grapevine that the NFL fixtures are due to be released "early this week".

Excellent.

Please let the Cowboys be at home on December 23 :p

Finally, tomorrow

Blimey, Pacman's been suspended for the season, and Chris Henry for half of it:

A hard line stance which I quite like, particularly the bit about playing in the NFL being a privilege rather than a right.

Chester 11-04-2007 05:32 PM

There are quite a few players who will be looking nervously over their shoulders like Tank Johnson when he is released. It seems to have been met with a positive reaction from everyone including players who were getting tired of being tarnished with the same brush as the likes of Pacman.

Now how long before that plonker in Dallas gets his cumupence

Strathclyde Eagle 11-04-2007 08:07 PM

Unfortunately the one thing TO isn't is a law breaker. :(

nookiebear 11-04-2007 11:50 PM

Redskins v Dolphins first game of the season, Ben :)

Strathclyde Eagle 12-04-2007 12:08 AM

Buffalo and New England away in December again. :bash:

Shall we go? How hard are Redskins tickets to get?

I am totally serious.

elliott 12-04-2007 01:11 AM

I wouldn't be.

My friend Paul wanted us to go to Detroit for Thanksgiving to watch GB. Not in.

Seems like Cam-Cam is looking for the Fins to play a bit of Air Coryell football. The interesting thing is that I think they could have the roster to do it. Strong armed QB (if DC plays), fast receivers. Good single back too in Ronnie.

Benzhiyi 12-04-2007 01:17 AM

Contrary to popular opinion, Detroit is quite a cool place as long as you stay away from the trouble spots - just got back from there. I especially recommend the Old Shillelagh irish bar. So I hope it wasn't that which put you off.

Fins vs Skins tickets onsale here for $89 upwards:

With Virgin, flights out on 7 September and returning 10 September are 395 each. Nooks, we really could make this happen. I've got a few pennies in a jar that I'd be more than happy to spend on this.

(And anyone else who fancies it is welcome to join us.)

elliott 12-04-2007 01:30 AM

It was mostly the fact that I'm spending 400+ on Rugby World Cup, and then NFL London the week after.
