Talk about a gold digger.


Since the team is safely out of their hands, I could care less what happens to those two. Hopefully each of their lawyers with bleed the other dry.

This year's draft was such a snooze fest. Boring Boring Boring Boring. And then, in the infinite wisdom of Lombardi (michael, not Vince) we took a Dlineman who has never played as an OLB to be our new OLB opposite Kruger, when we had a 2 years start who fit the mold already.

Oh, and the guy we drafted lit up the SEC with 4.5 sacks last year. Yes. We're off to a stellar start.

At least we put the "bark" back in the dawg pound (ugh... Kill me now)

I learned two things last night from the draft:

Buffalo will never win anything. Ever.

Aaaand Westbrook goes down for the playoffs with a tear. That makes the West even more jumbled than it was.

I do swear the Heat are getting every break they could, at least as far as injuries are going. And it does seem like the injury fairy is much more active this season than others, seems like more Stars went down this year than any in recent memory.

And that's not even touching Rose being at 100% but still not playing.

There is a rumor floating around that the Browns are looking to trade into the second round. No speculation on who they are after, but they are offering:

3rd, 4th, and Atabya Rubin (SP?) Would be sad to see him go, and that feels a little cheap, but conventional wisdom would point to them going after a QB, or possibly a CB. I hope it's a CB, since I'm pretty sure that Smith will be off the board by whatever pick they are getting.

Jeffrey Loria would sell Babe Ruth to the Yankees if he had been the Sawx owners back in those days.

The Browns are executing a new strategy. Don't draft anyone unless you absolutely can't trade the pick for next year.

Apparently the Patriots have a new strategy of their own: Draft from Rutgers. Yeesh.

Standard Belichick stuff though, lots of "who the hell is that?" draft picks in positions of need.

Kansas City didn't seem to draft with any coherent strategy, but I somehow have more faith in Dorsey and Reid's picks than I ever did about the previous regime's.

Really strange to watch the Seahawks draft this year. I can't recall ever before going into a draft without any significant needs and the ability to take whatever player we wanted.

I like several of the guys we got, but I wonder how many are going to make the team. We just don't have that many open roster spots. Some will make the practice squad, but some guys are just going to be drafted and cut.

I guess that's why we were willing to take shots on some higher-risk players. If they work, they come with high reward, but if they don't, it's not like we had a roster spot for them anyway.
