Jacksonville got another Soldier along the Defensive Front Lines. Took me a while, but I'm happy with it.

I cant imagine the Browns sucking after this Draft.

It seems mathematically impossible but hey....they are the Browns.  :P

Jimmy Haslam will find a way to tank.  He always does.  A lot of the coaching search debacle at the University of Tennessee this offseason was really about the fans just telling him to go away and stop finding ways to kill that program like he had for the past decade.

An NFL exec who'd worked for him was quoted as saying "Jimmy's a nice guy and he asks all these smart questions about things, but then he completely ignores everything you tell him.  He just won't listen."  He's basically the new Al Davis at this point.

I was really high on Mayfield before the draft, but then I saw how his coaches at Oklahoma would talk about how they had to really strip down a simple (for FBS college football, anyway) passing game for him to be effective because he struggled with reads and complexity.  That's usually a big red flag for a QB going into the NFL (see JaMarcus Russell, Vince Young, Johnny Manziel, etc.).  He may never learn how to "Spider 2 Y Banana."

I was shocked and bummed at first but once the shock wore off I realized he was clearly the BAP and that made me happy.

I was shocked to hear Cleveland handed Denver B Chubb.

What were they thinking?

Good to see L Jackson go in the first round. I think he is a sleeper. Been honing his game for this day for 3 years. I think he is Vick but better.

Chubb is a game changer for Denver. He immediately makes Kase Keenum a better QB by allowing him to play within his lane. Denver's biggest woes start and end with Vance Joseph. We play Spring teams who can't line up properly on a KR, have a hard time putting 11 players on the field, don't manage the game, etc. That all falls on the HC, whose job should be game day operations.

Case in point. I scouted two opponents Wednesday. We play both later in the season. (Youth) Broncos beat the Stampede 8-7. Broncos scored first and kicked the PAT. Kicking a PAT is worth 2. Running or passing is worth 1.  8-0 at the half. Stampede kicked off the 3rd quarter and I'm not exaggerating that the ball went 48 yards in the air. Broncos returner fumbled to the 1 and Stampede recovered. Stampede quickly scored to close the gap 8-6. They ran the ball in for the PAT, so now it's 8-7. Let's examine that decision:

* Zero offense the entire first half
* opponent gifts you a 1st and Goal from the 1 that you convert on
* your kicker has 50 yards in his leg
* You are down 2 points and kicking the PAT ties the game
* You run in the PAT for 1 point

What am I missing?

It gets better. Late in the 4th, down 8-7, Stampede has a first and 10 from the Broncos 11. Through a series of penalties and a double fumble, Stampede had about 12 plays to try and score with time running out. They failed on a 4th and 4 from the 5, but there was a personal foul that gave them 1st and goal from the 2. 3 plays later and it's 4th and goal from the 2. A field goal from your freak leg kicker gives you a 10-8 lead with seconds left in the game. Nope. Run the QB sneak that gets stuffed. Turnover on downs. Broncos run out the clock.

The Denver Broncos looked like a bad youth Spring team last season. VJ said some good things and made some solid changes regarding coaching and developing their personnel. We'll see if it pans out. He has to get better with the game day quality control, though. If he's able to do that, Denver should at least be competitive on an NFL level next season.

Same.

I thought there were a lot better choices still available, but I love the idea of "this is too much talent to let pass by, regardless of what position he plays."

He is also going to allow the Jags top trim since salary in 2019. Did you see the 30 minute break down of 2 of his games? It was pretty impressive.

What the hell is up with your team? After last season...they were a shoe in for this season.

Injuries mostly. We are decimated on the OL and at TE. Defense isn't getting the turnovers we got last year and that isn't helped by our star CB freelancing on defense either. Oh and the injury bug has not us hard at RB too and that never helps when you are a team that relies on the run to set up the pass.

Jags are going to need a new cb since Ramsey is leaving. No way he is in J-ville next season. Kid needs to learn to shut his mouth. The NFL has shown recently that they are 100% willing to blacklist problem players. Ramsey is about to find that out.

Haha. He is still on his rookie contract and has a 5th year option available after next year. Ramsey isn't going anywhere.

Nah, Ramsey wont be blacklisted for his trash talk.  There is so much trash talk that goes on in the NFL... the black listing isn't for trashtalk.
