  1. In my view, it makes little sense for New England to draft a QB in 2011. The 2012 NFL Draft, however, is an entirely different matter. That’s the year the Pats need to get a young and very promising quarterback in their system to be the heir apparent to Tom Brady. That special someone will not be the 199th pick in 2012. Rather, he may be the 1st pick of the first round. I happen to think that Andrew Luck is the man for the job. It’s instructional here for Pats fans to consider Aaron Rodgers’ backup role under—and eventual replacement of— “Lord” Favre. In retrospect, it was the right decision, as the Packers have a young franchise quarterback and are now well-positioned to repeat as Super Bowl champs. Hopefully, with a rookie wage scale in place, Luck to New England will be doable. Of course, he’ll command at least two high draft picks. Then again, that’s one expense that can be justified, given that we’re only talking about the future of the franchise.

  2. Cmon guys. Just because Brian Billick says something about Cam Newton, and he used to coach the Ravens, doesn’t make it about the Ravens. This is becoming a pattern.

  3. “Former Cowboys RB Emmitt Smith expects a lot of first-round running backs this year.”

    Um… you guys should pay a little more attention to the links you post. It’s a link to some guy making fun of Emmitt Smith.

  4. “Former Cowboys RB Emmitt Smith expects a lot of first-round running backs this year.”

    Whether Evan Silva thought it was a real headline or not, the mock article is hilarious.

    “Load and behole, Emmitt Smith IV Jr., the fruit of my loom.”

    Good stuff.

  5. The Titans better be careful, once I got exceptionally high on Kaepernick and O.Ded and had to go to rehab.
