Re: NFL 2013 Off-Season Discussion

No draft day chatter?

The Bears went with an OT, Kyle Long, at #20 instead of the pick everyone thought they should (Te'o)

Addressing a need is better, but SI gave them the lowest grade in the first round of 5.40. Anyone know why they don't like this guy?

David Haugh from the Chicago Tribune sums it up best:

"We see a player who's going to contribute right away,'' Phil Emery said.

I see a 6-foot-6, 313-pound risk with a troubling past and limited experience against elite competition.

Long started just four games for the Ducks last season, the only one he played after a circuitous path created by his immaturity. A left-hander with a 96 mph fastball whom the White Sox drafted in the 23rd round of the 2008 draft, Long played baseball at Florida State until academic problems and "chemical-dependency'' issues after a DUI arrest sent him west. The son of Hall of Fame defensive end Howie Long landed in Southern California working at a surf shop and enrolling in classes at Saddleback Community College in Mission Viejo, Calif., where he resumed playing football.
Long is basically the definition of a reach.

Curious to see who snags the first running back. Hoping it's Eddie Lacy, and hoping he goes to a team that will win the Super Bowl with him.

The Bears might have some new guys at the top but they have the same jokers out actually scouting the talent. This was a wasted first rounder, maybe as poorly chosen as Stan Thomas. I have no problem in passing on Manti, way over rated due to the ND hype machine. Should have taken Hopkins to bolster the receiving core. You can never have enough weapons.

You can have all the weapons in the world, but it doesn't mean a thing if your quarterback is getting bodyslammed about a second after the ball is snapped.

Hence the desire for another O-Lineman, but was there a better option at #20 than Long?

3 out of the first 4 picks were OT's, how much was left?

Eagles fans are baffled at taking a tight end when they need defense but I think they forgot who they hired as a head coach. Kelly is going to want to tweak the offense for to his style.

Re: NFL 2013 Off-Season Discussion

God I hate being a Cowboys fan sometimes. A TE! You have got to be kidding me. We just drafted Hanna from Oklahoma last year. Hell if they wanted a TE so bad why didn't they just sit on 18 last night and take Eifert. I'm sure our mediocre center would have still been on the boards today. Have fun getting your ass handed to you next year Romo. You are going to take another beating all year.

Re: NFL 2013 Off-Season Discussion

As a 'Niners fan, I'm not seeing much excitement here but certainly nothing to complain about. Solid choices. Hopefully they add a WR or two here in the next couple rounds.

Don't the 49ers have something like 15 picks?

They could have afforded to trade up, if they didn't have a lot of needs.

Re: NFL 2013 Off-Season Discussion

Tebow has finally been released by the Jets.

Anyone think Trestman could find a use for the guy? (hides from Timby)

Re: NFL 2013 Off-Season Discussion

He shouldn't even expect a phone call until he considers himself a hybrid FB/TE. The QB thing is not happening Timmy. If you accept that, then it is possible you can still salvage your career somewhat.

Tebow to Canada maybe. I hear they have two months of bad ice up there when they can play football.

Re: NFL 2013 Off-Season Discussion

I'd be interested in seeing if Tebow is able to develop if he lands in a place where there is no question who the starting QB is. When Tebow was given the choice of where to go last offseason, picking the Jets over whoever the other suitor was was the worst decision he could have made. Not only would Sanchez leave the door open for Tebow questions to emerge, but combining the Tebow circus with the dysfunctional disaster they call the Jets would never lead to anything good.
