  1. Not much, how are you?

  2. According to one of my sources, who speaks with scouts regularly, this kid is projected as a 5th to 7th rounder, right now. He's a Washington State transfer, so he has a nice arm. It will be hard for him to rise much, though, because both Blesto and National Scouting listed him at barely 6' 2" coming into the season. He's got talent, but he's not a small school freak, who can make aa easy jump into the early rounds.
  3. While Mamula is held up as the symbol for the biggest DE bust ever by the media, he started every game as a rookie and he did have a 3 sack game against Willie Roaf and a two sack game against Jumbo Elliot (both stars at the time) back in 1995. Those were his only 5 sacks as a rookie, but at least he saw the field. Gholston had only 5 tackles all season and rarely saw the field in key spots. That said, as bad as things look, you never know, he might bounce back a bit? He definitely has no where to go but up...I hope?
  4. BTY, I'm a big fan of his half brother ColecoVision Smalls, who, I believe, tried out for the New York Dragons in the spring of 2004.
  5. Yea, here in Connecticut you can opt out of jury duty for 3 years after appearing. While at the courthouse yesterday a 50'ish year old women was told by the clerk she could leave yesterday because she served in 2007 and responded with "can I please stay, I love serving"....she did get the call. Also, a 60-something year old women sitting a few rows in front of me told another lady she did this before and it was "a lot of fun".... I'm thinking these women are abberations. I bet I'd swing towards Green DNA's response if I ever made it onto a jury -- I'd get so bored, that I'd wa
  6. I was wondering if anyone here ever served on a jury? Coming out of college, I was summoned to jury duty and made it into the courtroom to be questioned by the lawyers in a civil case. But I provided to many "candid answers" and was politely told to hit the road less than 2 minutes after leaving the witness stand -- Plantiff's lawyer thought I was way too biased, because I suggested, among other things, that "it's possible" his client was faking a injury from and basketball fight and I also noted I would not mind being sucker punched if it meant a 2 million dollar payout (or even a fr
  7. It's a great move -- right where Joba belongs!
  8. Nothing will improve the team, until they fire Zeke....
  9. It's been an amazing run for the Rockets.
  10. Exactly SE, speed can be very important, but it can't be the only factor.... Also, I guess I was lashing out a bit some media types. You know the type that are beat writers for the Daily News, Newsday, The Post, ect... Like trained Seals, they'll constantly say and write things like the Jets (or any team) need more speed at linebacker!.......or the Jets need more speed in the secondary....or the Jets need more speed at wide receiver....or the Jets need more speed wherever? But can these stoodges tell me where all these talented fast players are, when the N.F.L. hand picks

  12. SE, I think there are so many more like Welker out there..... My theory is there is a percentage of N.F.L. players that are "no-brainers", in that they are so talented coming out, no one can hold them back and scouts simply can't miss them -- Peyton Manning, Randy Moss, Carson Palmer, Antonio Cromartie, Mario Williams, ect... After that, there is next wave....that are close behind... But I honestly believe that the last 15 spots on most N.F.L. rosters can be occupied by many of the top players in the C.F.L., Arena League or more talented released street free agents and

  14. SE, 2004 was the first year we really started doing draft daddy and that was Wes Welkers' class.....I thought he ran even worse than that 4.58, which was a huge problem for me when trying to rank him. Wes was an absolute superstar @ Texas Tech (set several 1-a records), but mostly as do everything weapon -- played RB, WR, and special teams. I loved his talent, but how do you project a kid that's 5' 8" and runs a 4.6-something? You knew he was great back then, but would he even get a fair shot? Best thing Wes did, was "seize the moment" with Chargers as a undrafted
