  1. John Ross insurance here. Another speedster to stretch the field. If you have to have one player, draft two. Good pick.
  2. I liked this guy way back. He really shows up on game tape. Love this pick.
  3. Sharpe or Butt. And we're gone to commercial.
  4. We have Kroger here in Richmond, VA. Also, I was the voice of young Barney Kroger on radio ads in the early 80's.
  5. There is also the simple gravity of having one of the more popular teams in the NFL. If you're the Stealers, with a 10-15% chunk of NFL fans, your silence or or chatter on any players transgressions makes up a good chunk of the water cooler talk.
  6. I know... If he can get away with that... http://www.prosportstop10.com/top-10-dirtiest-nfl-players-2016/5/ It's not just a perception... When there's clear video evidence of him intentionally trying to hurt two other players after the whistle? Yeah, he's a dumb ass. Especially when you can get away with plenty before the whistle blows.
  7. I'm going to go out on a limb and say because he isn't a dumb ass.
  8. Seriously? And the problem is, you can't guarantee he won't get caught, and he's already been caught twice. (at least) If he was able to murder people and not get caught, we wouldn't be having this conversation. But no, he can't get a traffic ticket without acting the ass and getting caught. So, just to be clear - You were against drafting Foster because of a diluted urine sample, but you're ok with a dude who hits chicks and tries to run over meter maids.
  9. Whatever man. You're right. Burfict went undrafted because of his involvement in a youth choir who rescued puppies. The reason he was blacklisted long before he joined the Bengals is because the league is crooked and hates Mike Brown.
  10. Also: Never heard of vaping or edibles. Goodell doesn't have a problem with players living on 1,000 Vicodin a month washed down with tequila... "We've taken guys in their forties who were weeks or days from dying on a 1,000-Vikes-a-month-and-tequila diet." "Pain-pill dependence is the NFL's dirty secret, and the next wave of trouble to breach its shore. In a months-long investigation involving dozens of former players, as well as their attorneys, physicians, and addiction counselors, what emerges is a picture of a professional league so swamped by narcotics that it closes its eyes to medical malpractice by many of its doctors and trainers. It does so not because it lacks the will to police its staff and players, but because the game itself could not survive without these powerful drugs. "The wear and tear on our spines and knees – we all had to take that to play," says Richard Dent, the Hall of Fame terror of those great Chicago Bears defenses of the 1980s and 1990s, who is now hobbled by back pain and headaches. "We got pills from a trainer, and where he got them, I don't know. But we were all involved with that." "Your body ain't made to go through a wall 50, 60 times a game," says Fred McCrary, a Super Bowl fullback with the New England Patriots in 2003, now belabored by bum shoulders and daily migraines. "By week three, they'd give you whatever you wanted – and, still, guys smoked weed for the pain." "Our doctors, who've seen everything, were shocked when they saw these guys; their prescription-pill addictions were literally deadly," says Smith over her steak salad." http://www.mensjournal.com/magazine/the-nfls-secret-drug-problem-20121127
  11. http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2017/04/28/roger-goodell-marijuana-is-addictive-and-unhealthy/ Yes, we would hate for the players we get addicted to pain killers so they can play through serious injuries to do something as addictive and unhealthy as marajuana. Besides, we have advertisers like Budweiser and Miller that wouldn't care for that. When a guy suffers a major concussion, I want to know his eyes are glazed from severe brain trauma not from some OG Kush. That way we can shoot him full of Toradol and get him back out on the field! After all, there's Millions of dollars riding on these guys at Draft Kings, the official fantasy football gambling website of the NFL.
  12. A known history of being a knucklehead doesn't just encompass what happens off the field. Other than that... Dunno what to say. Guy was a 1st round talent that went undrafted. If Reuben Foster can still get taken in the first after his disastrous combine/interview/drug test, you think Burfict slipped that far due to some sort of conspiracy?
  13. You don't see how drafting a guy with a known history of being a knuckle-head is going to paint a target on his back? See Burfict, Vontaze.
  14. So, let's draft a guy who has a history of beating women and see how that goes?
  15. Maybe because he didn't agree to give me an ass-load of money? People keep wanting these guys and then can't understand why we were 2 15 yard penalties away from winning a playoff game. Or why the defense gets off to a slow start when their leader is suspended for 3 games.
  16. As someone who has met Kitna, this doesn't surprise me one bit.
  17. Plus, you know, Jethro Bodine is just fine. Sigh.
  18. "Even Andy Dalton can succeed in that situation..." Fuck you. Guido asshole.
  19. That might be the best NFL comparison for Ross' game. However, don't forget that Chad also had Chad Johnson levels of work ethic. He lost his way in the later years, but before he changed his name, he was at the stadium more than Marvin. Chad was also a slight guy. He was a taller 6'2" and had a real talent for high pointing the ball. Ross isn't going to have that, but at 5'11" he's not going to be shorter than 90% of NFL corners. Both guys predicated their game on speed. Ross shows that same short area burst and sideline control. From interviews, he seems MUCH smarter, so hopefully he will commit himself to learning the craft, and have Ocho's luck when it comes to durability.
  20. Don't worry, when Mike Brown dies they'll cut to a very tasteful mac and cheese commercial during our pick out of respect.
  21. TJ Watt is pretty easy to hate.
  22. Shut up about Dan Rooney already.
  23. He was standing off to the side of the stage, ranting like a crazy man with snot running down his face. Deion shoved a mic in his face and he was all "I told my Grandma I'd be drafted, blah, blah..." He's like Rocky after defeating Apollo Creed depths of crazy/incoherent. "I told her I'd fucking do it. Get to the quarterback!' (Literally, he kept screaming the "Get to the quarterback" thing like he thought that's how you pronounce "!") He then ranted about "Fine me later, I don't care... Grandma..... Get to the quarterback! I did it Grandma...." until Deion had to be like "We love the intensity son, but you need to control it, not let it control you." Deion Sanders as Yoda. Dude's a god damned mental patient. He's the kind of guy that makes you explain to him that cartoons aren't real.
  24. Great Blue North had him at #18 when they went to print, at #17 on April 26th.
  25. Someone needs to get McKinley his meds. Aaaand he just dropped an F-bomb on NFLN.
