The Panthers let Sam Darnold know yesterday that there’s a “pretty good chance” they’ll “add” a quarterback in The Draft. Yeah, and there’s a “pretty good chance” the Sun will “add” another sunrise Friday morning. I’m guessing Darnold was not exactly shocked.
Ditto for Falcons’ “bridge” QB Marcus Mariota. You’re just renting, bud.
Remember that Mayfield and Jimmy G. are still out there, whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing. I think Jimmy is a well-above average QB. I think Baker is a hot mess.
I can’t make up my mind about former Liberty QB Malik Willis. Truth is, I can’t make up my mind about ANY of the quarterbacks in this year’s draft class. Some of those guys are going to be taken in the first round, simply because they are quarterbacks. But I don’t think one of them is a legitimate first-round talent.
No such reservations about former Aggie offensive lineman Kenyon Green. Holy moly, that is a good-looking football player. Zero chance of that pick blowing up in a team’s face, in my view. He’ll start and star for a dozen years.
Bears pass rusher Robert Quinn says he wants to stay in Chicago rather than be traded, as former teammate Khalil Mack was (to the Chargers) last month. There’s a major house cleaning going on in Chicago, and Quinn is coming off a season in which he recorded a franchise record 18.5 sacks. At age 32, Quinn still has considerable value.
Texans, don’t overthink this. If Alabama OT Evan Neal is still there at #3, and he will be, just fill out the card and hand it to the runner. You have 15 minutes to make your pick. Return 14 minutes and 55 seconds of that time.
Savvy move by the Broncos Tuesday, as they brought back veteran RB Melvin Gordon III. Gordon can provide some “thump” in that new offense.
Looks like Altuve will be back in the next few days. That will aid my breathing.
So, the Yankees were stealing signs electronically, too, huh. I’m shocked…
Players bitching about the baseballs they throw, hit and catch. Must be, you know, baseball season.
Mark Emmert will step down as NCAA president before 2023. The only thing that could make that sentence better would be, “Mark Emmert will step down as NCAA president before lunchtime today.” Disaster. And dishonest disaster at that.
Did you read that Paul Finebaum is predicting the end of college football as we know it? He may not be wrong. Except that we may ALREADY be witnessing the demise of college football.
