We all like to evaluate how badly our favorite teams have screwed up the draft. I though you might like to see how I evaluate players. I will be doing a draft rap up here on the Browns and other teams after the draft.
This outlines the system I have used for more than 40 years in evaluating college players for the NFL draft. The system is based on a point system. A number of years ago, I was in Indy the week of the Combine. I ran into a couple of Colt scouts in the hotel lobby. I suggested that they look at a C that I really liked but would probably not be drafted. He wasn’t drafted but the Colts signed him as a rookie undrafted free agent. The player was Jeff Saturday. All he has done is become an all pro for many years and the captain of the O line for Payton Manning. I found him using this system.
To use it, there are a few rules that must be followed.
The game of airsoft is amongst the many different kinds of extreme sports that continue to rise when it comes to popularity. Just like any other sports, it also involves the use of different kinds of equipments and accessories. The major equipments being used in playing airsoft are electric guns, tactical airsoft gears, targets, ammunition, and other accessories. Since airsoft revolves around using ammunition, this kind of extreme sport is usually being played by grown ups, although there are also times when kids are allowed to play — as long as they are being guided accordingly by grown ups.
For you to be able to completely enjoy the game, you should have complete airsoft equipments and accessories. Without proper protection, playing this game may get you injured. This is very true especially when you are playing against other players in a group or team battle. That is one reason why you should wear a complete set of airsoft protective gear that includes a helmet, a pair of gloves, boots, goggles, face mask, knee pads, and clothing. But, if you are only playing a practice game where you are shooting at airsoft targets, then wearing protective airsoft gear … Read more at FryingPanSports
There has been a lot of talk about why Andrew Luck and his golden arm will stay at Stanford for another year when every NFL draft analyst agrees he would be the #1 selection in the 2011 draft.
Some believe that he just really likes the college life style.
Some think he wants to work a little more on his game. He is a redshirt sophomore and has 2 more years of eligibility. He has only started 2 years for the Cardinals.
I have no idea why he decided to stay but it raises a HUGE red flag to me.
I have serious doubts about how important his NFL career is to Luck. If I was the owner of the Carolina Panthers, I would not want to spend 50 million dollars on a guy that may or may not be committed to the game and the team. Payton Manning went back for a final year at Tennessee but it was clear that his goal was to beat the Gators for once in his career.
This will be the last draft in which the first pick will get 50+ million dollars guaranteed. As soon as there is a new Collective Bargaining … Read more at FryingPanSports
As I predicted months ago, Bronco Owner Bowlen fired HC Josh McDaniels this week. This is what I said on this site on March 17, 2009:
The key story is that Bowlen blew it when he fired Mike Shanahan and blew it again in hiring the 32 year old McDaniels. McDaniels is not mature enough to be a head coach in the NFL. It was a bad hire and this is only the first screwup for which McD will be responsible.
That was written before the Broncos went 6-0 to start the 09 season. That start was followed by a 2-8 record to end 09 and a 3-9 start to the 2010 schedule.
It was obvious to me that McD was not nearly ready for the head job. But that is only the latest example of the failures of the Belichick disciples. Here is the major list of NFL head coaches that have come from the Belichick system:
Josh McDaniels – Fired after less than 2 years
Eric Mangini Browns (2009-?) – Was so bad at judging talent that he lost his GM control after a year and now is on the hot seat again.
I have some gift ideas for those of you that need to buy something for the NFL player, coach or administrator that has everything.
TO Romeo Crennel, the ex-coach of the Browns: A fire extinguisher. Given how hot your seat has been after the abysmal season you perpetrated on Browns fans, you need it. You are a nice guy but nice guys finish last. And the Tans are last after they lost to the Bagels and to Pittsburgh while Cincy beat KC. By the way, your back pants pocket is currently smoldering.
TO Phil Savage, GM of the Browns: An email editing program to delete expletives from your responses to fans and a financial advisor to help you invest your contract payoff. You really need to get a grip. The fans are your customers and we pay your salary. Before you write another email that would choke a dock worker, take a moment to appreciate your life. You may not have any job for quite awhile so spend your money wisely.
