Oh and Paul, maybe if you got yourself a girlfriend you wouldn't have to copy and paste so much on here and maybe, just maybe, you wouldn't have damaged your hand ... :D

That's why whiffing on a 1st Round pick is such a calamity, and why some teams are always crap while others are consistent playoff teams. Almost always, 1st and 2nd round picks are expected to contribute in their first season, second at latest.

Very true, hadn't thought about it in that way. I guess you can class the college system as kind of loosly equivalent to Championship and possibly League 1 football in the UK ... Difficult to compare I know but next best thing. So if football did this then all the players who played in the Championship and League 1 would be available in a draft in July maybe ... :)

:moo: :afro:

The draft really is random, we all know that. I've paid more attention to it the past two seasons than ever before but still know bugger all about almost all the young players - just read the Redskins forums a bit to get a feeling for what really people in the know think

The Brady thing is good to point out. Kurt Warner wasn't even drafted

Redskins fans seem excited by the wide receiver we drafted in the 7th round, Marko Mitchell - 6ft 4, but quick. They think he could have the sort of impact Chris Horton had for the Skins on D last season. He was a 7th round pick as well and is now a starter at Safety. Some are actually rating him higher than the two wide receivers we drafted in the second round last year :eek:

Now I hadn't put you down as the first to respond to that :D

I will be taking a look at the 12 that Dallas picked and see what the thoughts are on those at some stage when time permits. But the drafting of a QB is very interesting.

Erm, it was partially because of things like that that I ended up doing what I did.

He is a backup.

Romo is still rated pretty high in this league and unless he performs a Brad Johnson for 5 games in a row, this guy will only see time when the Cowboys are a ton of points ahead.

Are the 4 NFCE teams, the best in terms of RB ability? All have a top 10 RB in terms of the league, and all have a decent backup in some shape or form.

Two other things before I leave for Tonbridge-Carshalton.

1. Why do the Phins really want Taylor? The one year without Porter and look what happened. And they won't move Porter for Taylor apparently.

2. I got a question answered by Vic Carucci on NFL.com yesterday (always a positive). Didn't like the answer though. :(

Yours,

Mr. Looking forward to a competitive AFC East.

Not cool, dude. Not cool.

Pats fan here. Anything on Peppers or Taylor to help the pass rush?

Deadly quiet on that front. I remain baffled as to why Peppers has yet to sign his franchise tender, which is really the only way he's going to be moved (if he's going to be moved at all). And it's hard to believe that there would be any deals made now involving the 2010 draft. As for Taylor, I'd say he probably has a better chance of rejoining the Dolphins than going to New England.

I'm not a complete tool Paul, I know that. But we also brought in the Lions aged backup.

Agreed on the RB position though, we are pretty stacked up there with three I would say.

well, i can't believe no one wanted to take a punt on him.

I would have thought his drive in the last two minutes against Texas would have got him picked. Too much value in measurements and not enough in how players can play I'd say.

Erm, no.

As stated multiple times, I punched a wall. I don't hit people, especially girls, i'm not 9Freedman9. ;) I take my anger out on other things. And it wasn't because of that anyway.

I'd give you the whole story but I have a banging headache from Carshalton where I met AddiscombeEagle (I think), nice guy who joined our group for the trip home and sung with us for the match.

What about his first play at the Senior Bowl? Took the snap from center, got his legs caught up in the O-Line, fell over but somehow got the ball to the RB.

Good start to an NFL career :D

Skins rookie Glenn says he lied in first interview

April 29, 2009 10:37 AM

Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley

The NFL career of Redskins rookie linebacker Cody Glenn has begun with a mini-scandal in which he's admitted lying to local reporters about why he was suspended for three games at Nebraska last season. The fifth-round pick said he got so caught up in the euphoria of being drafted that he told a big fib. During a conference call with local reporters Sunday, Glenn was asked why he'd been suspended at Nebraska. Fair question. Here was Glenn's response:

"I got caught up with selling some tickets I wasn't supposed to," Glenn said. "I did it, and I got caught up in it. Coach Pelini had to do what he had to do, but it wasn't nothing really big. It was just something where they didn't want to hurt the team."

That explanation certainly caught Nebraska off guard since they didn't know anything about a ticket-scalping story. A follow-up call by a reporter from the Associated Press to Glenn prompted a confession. He had made up the story.

"So many people kept asking me about it, everywhere I go," Glenn said. "That was the rumor out there, so I just said, 'OK, yeah, I sold tickets.'

"It was just so people would kind of leave me alone, just to get them an answer, for people who had to have an answer. There's so much I'm going through, trying to finish up school. And to have people constantly nagging in my ear about 'What did you do?' blah, blah, blah. I got tired of that. That's all that is. I didn't mean to confuse anyone."

If you want a job done properly ....

Special teams coach DeCamillis broke a vertebrae in his back without paralysis but one of the scouts weren't so lucky it seems. The minicamp included the drafted players and several free agents ....

jazman 04-05-2009 04:44 PM

It seems QB McGee that Dallas drafted is making waves in mini-camp. As is free agent WR Kevin Ogletree ....

How the Dolphins fans enjoying "Land Shark" Stadium. Great name...

Here comes the Dolphins. Who take Vontae Davis.

Why cant the Pats take Maualuga or Brown who I wanted us to trade up to 9 to get. He is sitting here Bill, take him.

I think taking Mack was pure Mangenius!

Robiskie 2nd pick :p

Go Brownies!! WOOF WOOF!!
