Are you all excited for next week's Geno Smith Bowl? Chiefs vs. Raiders: The loser of this game is in a strong position to get either the #1 or #2 draft choice.
I'm not sure if everybody is going to go QB crazy in this draft. It's not that great of a pro style QB class. I think Barkley's stock has fallen as well as Geno's. I wouldn't be surprised if a guy like Jarvis Jones from Georgia is a number 1 overall pick. I thought that kid was better than Manti but he didn't have the hype train. If you want a franchise QB than a guy like Tyler Wilson from Arkansas fits the mold. Tyler Bray out of Tennessee as well. Everybody was high on Logan Thomas out of VT but he ended up being an incompletion machine this year. He still might get some looks in the later rounds because he is 6'6 and 260 lbs.
True, and yet we have a fair number of teams that are absolutely desperate for a QB, and there aren't a huge number of good options among free agents or trade options. What is, say, Kansas City going to do at QB if they don't draft a quarterback with their high draft pick? Trade for Alex Smith or Matt Flynn? There'll be other teams like Arizona that might want to trade for them as well. Trade for Michael Vick???
No one's going to trade for Alex Smith when everyone knows that there isn't a snowball's chance in hell of the 49ers picking up his $7.5 million roster bonus. Vick will most likely never start another game in the NFL again. I have to imagine Seattle will hang onto Flynn as long as it can, too, since the jury's still out on whether Russell Wilson is legit -- he's definitely talented but the Seahawks have played a pretty hilariously weak schedule.

Re: NFL 2012 - Drive to Glory

Just used the playoff calculator, and determined that if Houston loses to either New England tonight or Minnesota in week 16, and then Indianapolis can somehow sweep them (I know, I know, unlikely that Houston loses 3 of their last 4), then Indianapolis actually wins the AFC South.

I think that's insane, considering both Denver and New England have already locked up their divisions, but Houston is still 2 games away from winning theirs.

Houston is getting smacked around by Belicheck right now. Whatever tweaks he's added to the Patriot defense, it has the Texans completely stymied

While I hope that to be true, you can imagine someone signing him as a backup and who knows the uncertainties after that.

Houston isn't managing much on the offensive side, but they are pummeling Brady. Dude's been getting drilled all night.

Aside from seeing Brady knocked on his ass a few times, MNF tonight was about as much fun as an anal evacuation.

I don't like seeing Brady get hit, but I admit MNF was so awesome that I also shit myself.

It was weird to see 3 TDs followed by 3 3-and-outs. That worries me.

What people that don't follow NE on a week to week basis don't realize is that their run defense is actually pretty good. Their D overall gets maligned (rihtfully so) because their secondary is dreadful. The Talib trade and getting Chung and McCourty healthy for once has helped though.

Their secondary really isn't dreadful anymore. Talib's been a pretty solid pickup, Dennard has come on strong in the latter half of the season, and McCourty is so much better at safety than he is at cornerback. I no longer worry when I see the opposing QB drop back like I did earlier in the season.

Re: NFL 2012 - Drive to Glory

^They haven't been boss in a while. The Giants own them, and before that they had a couple of shitty, home playoff losses.

If NE gets a bye, they might play on my birthday in the divisional round. The Tuck Rule Game was on my birthday, so I have a good feeling if they do.

Of course after the Super Bowl loss last season, my ex-wife called the next morning and said she wanted a divorce, so I donno if I what kind of luck I am.

Tagliabue has vacated the suspensions of all four Saints players punished in the initial Bounty rulings. His decision basically came down to the fact that while there was proof of inappropriate behavior (one article I read said he actually found indications of a bounty, another article said that it was just a general pay-for-performance fund), there was no behavior on the field to justify large suspensions or player fines. Vilma still plans to pursue his defamation lawsuit against Goodell.

Basically, the players are having their suspensions vacated only on the fact that individual appeals require such a high level of scrutiny that wasn't able to be met due to the active interference from the coaching staff with regards to the investigation. There was zero exoneration. Tagliabue affirmed basically everything Goodell concluded, but did not have enough to uphold the direct suspensions based upon the coaches muddying the water.

In other words, Tags just showed Goodell just how shitty of a commissioner he is and said, "That's right, bitch, now go make me a sandwich."
