  1. Too easy.... I think Pouha has potential, but realistically, what are the chances that he pan out? Defensive tackles have a brutal job which requires brute strength and technique. Outside of men like Richard Seymour, Kevin Williams, Tommie Harris, Trevor Smith, etc how any show this in their first year? It takes years for these guys to develop, something Pouha may not have much of. Pouha will have to put in some serious work AND have to be coached up. I hope he does well, but he looked brutal last season, the little time he was on the field. maybe in year two, he makes a h
  2. I wouldn't buy this book, but maybe someone can use a Sharpie to highlight any interesting parts.
  3. You were too busy calling people marshmallows on the other boards
  4. Thanks, Bart. I had a rough time choosing between Hester and another player I had high on my board, but Hester would provide Chicago with the versatility they needed in Randel El, who decided to sign with Washington. Blackmon, my third round pick, could step in for Tillman, who some rumor jerry Angelo as being down on, or he could provide Nickel help. Hester could also play in the Nickel or Dime, and would provide a nice combo return game with Bernard Berrian and Nathan Vasher. Overall, this pick provides more athleticsm on O/D and ST and Hester gives Chciago that another
  5. Ok. The Chicago Bears select CB/WR/RB Devin Hester U of Miami
  6. Watching Orton last year was painful and almost unBEARable(excuse the pun), but he was better than the collection of stiffs the Bears trotted out two seasons ago. He was a rookie and I didn't expect much. He did what was asked of him, which was manage the clock, and not turn over the football. Griese is getting grief, but he played very well last year, right up until he got hurt. I like the move.
  7. Is there a time limit in this round or are things more relaxed? I'll be lurking around until my turn.
  8. Agreed. Grossman, Griese and Orton make a nice trio of qb's, and Griese could also push Rex, IF Lovie opens up the #1 spot to competition.
  9. Oh TX, must we go at it again? Yes Abraham is worth a #1 pick. No I am not saying this as a homer, but as a football fan. Historically, top ten DE's have been traded for #1 picks. Tennessee traded their #1 for Kevin Carter and Abraham's stats compare very well. Both will be 28 the year they were traded. Abe is young, in his prime, and is better than any 1st round DE right now. Aside from Mario Willams, what DE is as good as Abe? Daunte Culpepper has a shredded knee, yet Miami wasted no time in trading their 2nd round pick. Abe has just as many, if not more
  10. See, I love how these "experts" say the jets are asking for too much and will not receive the compensation they want, mainly because everyone knows that NY "needs" to get rid of him. Bull****. The simple fact that so many teams need a DE like Abe, someone that can get to the QB, negates our "NEED" to get rid of him for nothing. These idiots think that the Jets will have to let him go for peanuts, and that is so far from the truth. The truth is that Abe is in his prime, has THREE Pro Bowls under his belt, and has just as many sacks as The Freak in the last three seasons.
  11. Finheaven? Please. They ban you foor anything over there. You cannot debate or post anything that does not ass kiss or deify the Dolphins. Meanwhile, a bunch of idiot homer fanatics can post trash like "Zach Thomas is better than Ray Lewis and Brian Urlacher". There can be no dissenting opinion over there. F them.
  12. You're both right. A record amount of compensatory picks were awarded last season, including third round picks. That being said, I believe that last year was the first time in several years that a third rounder was awarded. Denver got TWO third round picks. Adam is a god when it comes to this stuff. His prediction rate runs at some unreal number of 90 something percent.
  13. LOL, lol good stuff. Here's some more: Ole staggered home very late after another evening with his drinking Buddy, Sven. He took off his shoes to avoid waking his wife, Lena. He tiptoed as quietly as he could toward the stairs leading to their upstairs bedroom, but misjudged the bottom step. As he caught himself by grabbing the banister, his body swung around and he landed heavily on his rump. A whiskey bottle in each back pocket broke and made the landing especially painful. Managing not to yell, Ole sprung up, pulled down his pants, and looked in the hall mirror to see
  14. A man walks into a restaurant with a full-grown ostrich behind him. The waitress asks for their orders. The man says, "A hamburger, fries and a coke," and turns to the ostrich, "What's yours?" "I'll have the same," says the ostrich. A short time later the waitress returns with the order. "That will be $9.40 please," she says and the man reaches into his pocket and pulls out the exact change for payment. The next day, the man and the ostrich come again and the man says, "A hamburger, fries, and a coke." The ostrich says, "I'll have the same."
  15. Ok, let's lighten things up a bit. A little boy goes to his dad and asks, "What is Politics?" Dad says, "Well son, let me try to explain it this way: I am the head of the family, so call me The President. Your mother is the administrator of the money, so we call her the Government. We are here to take care of your needs, so we will call you the People. The nanny, we will consider her the Working Class. And your baby brother, we will call him the Future. Now think about that and see if it makes sense." So the little boy goes
  16. I was surprised to see him fall that far, but with the run on corners coming in the first two rounds, it gave me hope. I was also hoping for Fasano or Klopfenstein to fall into my lap but the run no luck
  17. Thanks Faba. If the bears draft actually went this way, I would be content. I've heard good things about him and his profiles show that he has excellent potential. In another mock, I selected Ashton Youboty in round one, and Klopfenstein fell to me in round three. I think it's pretty interesting how these mocks work out and how people value certain players. Three solid picks, all filling needs and providing depth.
  18. Here's the other thing. I don't know what their contract situation is like, but will a tender for Schaub be the wise thing to do? Do they have any big time players that will become free agents? They might be able to get away with this next season, but I find it hard to believe that they can avoid it two years in a row.
  19. Boozer, Come on. You're the third person to sayt his, and it's not true. Kearse was a free agent when he signed with Philly. The Bears offered hima $14 M signing bonus, but chose Philly and their $16M signing bonus. It was Owens that garnered the 2nd round pick. This is bs. people expect us to get rid of a 27 yr old, 3X Pro Bowl player, who has more sacks than Kearse in the past three years, for less than a one. Please. Step away from the crack pipe and put down the Jack. Tennessee gave up a #1 for Kevin Carter and Tampa gave up a #1 for Rice. Granted, Abe has not
  20. I actually had Allen as my second choice behind Spencer. It was pretty close for me, but with the line showing age and Mike Brown locking things down in the backfield, I thought I'd take Spencer instead. Great pick, Ham.
  21. I remember for years, listening to George Young and Bill Parcells talk about the types of players they sought out. Big, physical, hungry. It all comes from the same tree. Parcells, BB, Mangini. The Giants players, in terms of intelligence, were never the smartest, textbook wise, but on the field, their football IQ was tremendous. I immediately think of guys like Leonard Marshall, Carl Banks, Mark Collins, mark Bavaro, Jumbo Elliott, LT. Parcells, in his interviews, always wanted to know which was the most important thing in the guy's life, and if he didn't say footb
  22. I'm pretty happy with the way things have turnedout for me so far, and I would be thrilled if the Bears draft acutally mapped out this way. Ernie Sims LB-FSU Charles Spencer OG-Pitt I've managed to create Ham's "Super Unit" by selecting one of the top linebackers int he country, also protecting the team in the event Lance Briggs cannot be resigned or is injured. The offensive line is ok, but showing signs of age with Fred Miller and Ruben Brown, so I drafted one of the biggest, nastiest, most talented guards in Spencer. He can step in immediately and plow open road for
  23. Jerry Angelo flies up to the podium to select: Charles Spencer OG-Univ of Pittsburgh
