  1. The Vikings might not take Kahil, and I would be okay with that. This draft is deep with linemen, and Reily Reiff is a great option as well. The main thing is, we need to seroiusly upgrade this offense with young talent to go along with our promising young QB. A premier LT would go a long way toward accomplishing that. Personally, I think they should snag the following players in the first. four rounds, assuming they trade back a few spots in the first and don’t draft Kahil.

    1: OT Riley Reiff – Iowa
    2: WR Stephen Hill – Georgia Tech
    3: OG Kevin Zeitler – Wisconsin
    4: CB Leonard Johnson – Iowa State

    Reasons why the Vikings would pass on Kalil? I’m not even going to click on the link. The answer is, because they’re stupid.
    I initially thought the same thin you did Meccabi, but if you read the article, it does make some sense. Plus this draft is the deepest at LT and DT that there has been in many years, and very few teams have LTs that are 1st round picks… most are mid rounders.

  3. Would the Patriots take a chance on North Alabama CB Janoris Jenkins?


    Let’s take a look at Mr. Jenkins track record:

    – 4 kids, by three different women, at age 23.
    – 2 arrests for marijuanna possession in college.
    – failed drug test in college.
    – arrest for a bar fight.

    Yea I’m sure BB is licking his lips.

  4. That story on Manning is just plain silly. From day one the date for Manning to become a Free Agent has been March 9. If the Colts don’t pay him money by March 8 he becomes a free agent on March 9.

    The article asks, what is the hold up? The “hold up” is that this is February.
