2009 NFL Prediction (4/30)

It’s been a long time since I’ve done one of these, and you probably thought it would be a lot longer before I did another one, with the NFL season still being over four months away. Wow, that’s a depressingly large number. I want it to start tomorrow and because of this, here I am putting out my first predictions for the 2009 NFL season. This was really hard to do with the season so far away, but I have a treat for you all tomorrow. I hope you’re excited about it; I now I am and I bet you’re going to be surprised too!

Here are my early 2009 regular season NFL predictions: Continue reading

NHL Playoffs Round 2 Preview

Alright after a double dose of Game 7 last night, the first round of the NHL Playoffs has come to a conclusion.  In the preview of Round 1, I managed to pick six of the 8 series correctly and I got the game total corrent in four of them (Boston in 4, Carolina in 7, Pittsburgh in 6, and Detroit in 4).  I missed the Canucks’ sweep over my Blues and the Ducks upsetting the Sharks, though I almost picked that.  Too bad almost doesn’t count.  Anyway, on to Round 2.

Mike Rozier Got Married

Who?

I know most of us aren’t yet familiar with the name Mike Rozier yet, but Ghost reported a couple weeks ago that the Vols signed him as a quarterback. Rozier is a 23-year-old (will turn 24 on Independence Day) former minor league baseball pitcher, who was also a two-star quarterback recruit when he graduated high school.  He turned down a football scholarship to play at North Carolina in order to join the Red Sox organization.  Now, he’s a Vol. Continue reading

The Best Players Not Drafted

I decided to put together a list of the best players not drafted in the 2009 NFL Draft. I’m putting them in order with the best non-drafted player first. I might redo the list later and update it, and add some players just depending on how much time I decide to put into this but I figured I would go ahead and throw my initial list up here.

Live Blog of The 2009 NFL Draft (Day 2)

To check out the live blog from Day 1, go here. To check out more of our concluding thoughts from yesterday, go here. Just like yesterday, I will be blogging and Bryan will be taking care of the comments. Today I won’t be providing quite as much analysis due to the fact that teams only have five minutes to make their picks on Day 2 which means I won’t have as much time to provide my opinion on here.

Review of Day 1

Bryan and I thought it would be a good idea to put together a few lists that showed what we thought after Day 1 of the draft. We also just decided not to include the Raiders on the worst 5 teams of Day 1 because they were SO bad that they deserve their own category. Here are the lists: Continue reading

Live Blog of the 2009 NFL Draft (Day 1)

Alright, the actual draft starts in just over four hours. We’ve already got one pick under our belts and we’re ready for the next 255. I’m literally so excited right now that I can’t sit still long enough to write this intro. I have hopes, I have dreams, I have thoughts that don’t even make any sense. I will be putting up the team with the player they picked, his position and college he last played for. I will also be putting up a brief analysis and/or opinion for each pick. After that I will put up a prediction for the next pick or two or maybe more just depending on how I’m feeling in the given moment and then I will join Bryan in the comments section where we hope to have a constant discussion going on, so if you agree or disagree with a pick, or have a question about a pick please let me know in a comment. Also if you agree or disagree with my analysis/opinion on a pick let me know in a comment. Continue reading

2009 NFL Mock Draft XIV (4/25)

WE’RE LIVE BLOGGING THE DRAFT. CHECK IT OUT BY CLICKING HERE.

The actual NFL Draft starts in less than 15 hours, so it’s safe to say that this will be my final 2009 mock draft. It was just announced that the Lions will be taking Matthew Stafford, so that is one pick I have right.

Bryan and I will be live blogging the actual draft this year, just like I did last year only this time it will be even better because I won’t be flying solo, as long as Bryan can get his internet to work. It should again be filled with a lot of excitement and a lot of emotion, and we hope to put up a lot of good info and feedback with each pick and encourage you to let us know what you think in the comments. Hopefully we’ll have a running conversation about the draft going. Continue reading

Ten Truths About The 2009 NFL Draft

1. There aren’t any quarterbacks in this draft that will end up being good enough to be franchise quarterbacks unless they happen to end up somewhere that is a perfect fit.

2. Josh Freeman is severely overrated and will likely be the worst value out of any of the quarterbacks drafted. He only had a 59.1 completion percentage for his career in college and had a 44:34 for his TD:INT ratio, and if you exclude last years games against North Texas, UL-Lafayette and Montana State, Freeman’s completion percentage last year was 54.7 with 11 TDs and 8 INTs.

3. Jason Smith has the red flags for being a bust. He climbed the draft board ridiculously fast out of nowhere after the season was already over.

4. Knowshon Moreno will end up being a much better NFL back than Chris Wells, and if Wells gets drafted first then the team that takes him will end up regretting it.

5. Jeremy Maclin and Percy Harvin will have injury problems throughout their careers and will be drafted too high because of it.

6. Bryan and I each picked a player that we think is the most ready to go in and perform at a high level in the NFL right now. I picked Aaron Curry and Bryan picked Michael Crabtree.

7. Chase Coffman will be the best pass catching tight end to come out of this years draft.

8. Offensive tackle is the strongest position in the draft up front, but running back is the deepest with a lot of great change of pace backs and backs that will excel in a two-back system.

9. Ramses Barden will be much better than expected. It will be like when Marques Colston got drafted late and ended up being a stud. They’re both from small schools and didn’t get much recognition because of it. They’re both big possession receivers. Somebody is going to get Barden late and it will be a steal.

10. If William Moore and/or Patrick Chung fall to the third round then which ever team(s) he/they go to will be getting a great value out of their pick. Bryan says that if William Moore goes to Denver and can play with/under Brian Dawkins for a year or two then that would be very good for him.
