NFL 2013

Post by Thanas »

Today is the first day of the title defence of the Baltimore Ravens.

Wonder who we'll get in the draft.

I just want to laugh at whatever desperate move the Jets make to try to salvage their imploded team.

They may actually win that way. There is no way anyone in that locker room has faith in Captain Butt Fumble.

Hour and 45 to go. I have no idea who we are even considering with the SECOND TO LAST PICK ( :finger: :banghead: ) in the first round let alone who we may be targeting.

I know there is a giant NT in the first or second round somewhere, but I am so out of the loop this year I can't even remember his name.
We need some secondary help and maybe a up and comer behind Gore. Need that 2nd TE position filled as well.

April 25th-27th, just in case you didn't see it.

As a college football fan, I'm more interested in if BSU can get a first round pick two years in a row, though there are definitely some interesting picks lined up. One player I've decided to track this draft is Aaron Rodgers' little brother. He had an efficient season at Vanderbilt (by which I mean he lead them to their most successful season in... like forever), but he hasn't gotten much draft buzz. Most projections have him as a 7th round or undrafted Free Agent. It'll be interesting to see if a team decides to use a late round pick and take a chance on him. Hey, he could be the next Eli Manning.

Well, with the Ravens having to rebuild their defense and the Bucs getting two All-Pro OL back to block for Martin and Freeman showing significant improvement, that could be a good matchup. Of course, you have Flacco on the other side and unless something gets significantly better in Tampa's pass defense, the best the Bucs can hope for is a shootout.

Our schedule is pretty nice:
1 @Broncos
2 vs Browns
3 vs Texans
4 @ Bills
5 @ Dolphins
6 vs Packers
7 @ Steelers
8 Bye Week
9 @ Browns
10 vs Bengals
11 @ Bears
12 vs Jets
13 vs Steelers
14 vs Vikings
15 @ Lions
16 vs Patriots
17 @ Bengals
Nice bye week in the middle, nearly always pairing one good team with one shitty team. Playing steelers on three days of rest is bad, but that is about it.

Aww, phoeey. I was hoping they'd play the Jets at the Meadowlands, since I'm only 45 minutes away. My wife and I really want to go to a Ravens game this year, and Baltimore, though a lovely city, is a bit of a schlep.

Meanwhile, in other news, the Browns are still the browns. Only now run by a crook.

So, a first and conditional fourth (most likely be a third) plus a 6 year, 96 mil contract? That is a lot. Hope you guys get your money's worth.

I'm looking down the barrel of a 6-10 season. The worst part is that everyone (and not just that numbskull Peter King) is predicting the Chargers will use picks they can't spare to move up to #6 (Cleveland's spot) to get Lane Johnson. The entire offensive line sucks, just as bad as Arizona's or Chicago's. Rebuilding it is at least a 2-year project, meaning that by the time it's done Marmalard will be through. Thanks to AJ Smith the team is in cap hell, too.

Well it looks like Rolando McClain kept his promises to stay out of trouble and to avoid decatur....for a whopping 10 days after signing his contract. Screw him.

It has zero guaranteed money, which means the Buccs can cut him almost anytime and have no salary cap penalties. 16 million isn't to much to pay for Revis if he is still Revis.

As for McClain, yelling "fuck the police" isn't against any law I have heard of, nor does it warrant physical action by them. Pretty interesting as well that out of a crowd of 700 a sober McClain gets singled out. I mean "disorderly conduct"? :lol: They couldn't even figure out anything good to charge him with so they went with that bullshit stand by, because I'm sure out of those 700, his conduct was way more disorderly than anyone else. :roll:

According to the police, he tried to incite the crowd to riot.

But that being said, the stupidity is not "what" got him arrested, but that he got arrested in the first place.
