NFL Draft Thoughts


  • That's Aggie QB Ryan Tannehill's wife. The Miami Dolphins drafted him in the first round. When his head hits the pillow tonight, he'll say "Ka-Ching". 
  • Jessica Simpson?
  • Baylor: RG3 at #2 and Kendall Wright at #20. Excited for Baylor? Yes. Real thought? Please come back!
  • No UT player in the first round. That explains a lot. 
  • When the Cowboys drafted the LSU cornerback in first round, I mistakenly thought it was the Honey Badger. Excitement trampled. 
  • I hate Chris Berman
  • I didn't get to watch the first two hours of the draft because I was running the scoreboard at a softball game. Flawlessly, I might add. 
  • The new Collective Bargaining Agreement has quite the impact: Two years ago OU's Sam Bradford, the first overall pick in the 2010 draft, got a six year deal worth about $78 million, and $50 million of that was guaranteed. Tonight's first pick, Andrew Luck of Stanford, will probably receive a four year deal for $22 million. No reason to cry, but it's just another brick in the player v. owner wall.

Mitt Romney hates NFL collective bargaining. Ron Paul will save the NFL.

I can't imagine which would cause me to stab myself in the face faster...
Running a scoreboard at a softball game or
paying any attention to the NFL draft.

Maybe doing both and then Blogging about them might cause me to go ahead check out completely.

So, how many consecutive error-free innings is that now?
I hear scoreboarding will be part of the Summer Games in 2016. Got a sponsor lined up yet? Try Chico's Bail Bonds

Contracts and signing bonuses were getting out of hand. $50M guaranteed before taking a single snap is ridiculous

I remember when Warren Moon was drafted. He's black and RG3 is black, so it's just exactly the same, right wordy?

Always thought rookie draft picks had it the best. Insane contracts for no performance at the NFL level. Save the big contracts for those who produce in the NFL!

Had a conversation with Colin Jones a few weeks ago, he said he had to file income tax in every state the 49ers played in last year (9). Not Fun !!!
