    Yes, Mike Holmgren has truly left his mark on the draft and that franchises. Every year he is in charge of a draft, makes me happy the Packers never handed him the keys to the franchise.

    The Patriots are far from needing help at RB. Woodhead, Vereen, and Ridley are more than capable of carrying the load. They are better off signing a rookie free agent to put on the practice squad.

    Sorry RG III, but you can say that. Won’t make it so. Ask Romo about huge expectations and no one else stepping up to help out.
