Could McCoy fall to Bills?

Standard

The Buffalo Bills biggest need is offensive tackle in the April’s upcoming National Football League Draft.

However, things are starting to look like th Oklahoma defensive tackle Gerald McCoy could fall to the Bills.

That is due in part to economics of the game forcing offensive players towards the top of the draft.

That in turn will force top defensive prospects to slide down in the draft.

With Ndamukong Suh of Nebraska being the top rated defensive tackle, McCoy will slide further than expected.

In the end if McCoy is there the Bills will take him.

Just Sad

Standard

The contracts that are given to the prospects at the top of the National Football League Draft have become so obsurd certain positioons are not even considered anymore.

Its a sad sight to see that these contact are affecting who is going first overall this April.

According to ESPN”s John Clayton, the teams picking in the first three spots overall will not take a defensive tackle or safety due to the amount of money in each contract of those spots.

It should never come down to this as teams should be allowed to take the best player available.

However, thanks to the former National Football League Players Association executive driector Gene Upshaw things are now a complete mess.

In the end a rookie cap will be a welcomed sight.

Bills would be better off with Brohm

Standard

According to Washington Post, ProFootballTalk.com, word is that for while now there has been a proposed trade between the Washington Redskins and the Buffalo Bills.

Simply the Bills would be better of just nixing it.

Reportedly, the Redskins would send quarterback Jason Campbell to the Bill in exchange for safety Donte Whitner and a draft pick.

Campbell is not an elite quarterback and making a trade for him would be ridiculous.

Also, there are options out there like Miami Dolphin quarterback Tyler Thigpen.

In the end the best move is none at all and just starting quarterback Brian Brohm as tackle is much more important at this point.

We apologize for not having more posts up, but a video project took up most of my day.

Good night and good luck.

Broncos cannot escape trouble

Standard

The Denver Broncos may have a different man at head coach in Josh McDaniels.

However, they still find trouble just like they used to under head coach Mike Shanahan.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, running back Knowshon Moreno is being investigated for allegedly hitting someone outside a bar.

The fact of the matter is that the punishment for violating the Personal Conduct Policy is not tough enough to make players think twice.

In the end the NFL needs to toughen the punishment up or things will only get worst.

Some clarity

Standard

One of the big bits of news is the 18 percent credit that the National Football League wants as a part of the Collective Bargaining Agreement.

Finally, ProFootballTalk.com takes a look at ehat the 18 percent really is.

The National Football League Players Association at pre-Superbowl press conference stated that the NFL wants the players to take an 18 percent pay cut.

The truth of the reality is that the NFL wants to reduce the gross sales revenue pool by 18 percent before the players salary cap is figured.

That means of out of 100 percent of sales the NFL wants to eliminate 18 percent.

Of the remaining 82 percent the players 60 percent would be figured out.

So, out of $8 billion the NFL wants to reduce it by $1.44 billion to $6.56 billion to be figured out for players salaries.

Then the players would get their 60 percent cut, which would $3.936 billion and that translates into a salary cap of $123 million.

The salary cap for 2009 was $128 million, which is a $5 million reduction, which is actually a 3.91 percent reduction.

In the end the players are lying to get more sympathy.

Personal Conduct Code a joke

Standard

According to the Associated Press, Oakland Raiders head coach Tom Cable will not be punished by the National Football League after investigating into allegations of domestic abuse and a fight with a assistant coach.

Now, the NFL’s Personal Conduct Code has become a joke
The NFL didn’t punish Cable, because there were no criminal chargers filed against him.

The problem is that when the Personal Conduct Code was first implemented NFL commissioner Roger Goodell stated that there doesn’t need to be charges for a person to be suspended.

The fact of the matter is that Cable did something and should have been suspended for it.

The message that the NFL is sending is that players can go out and do whatever they want and as long as they plead out to eventually no charges will be filed or eventually dropped its okay.

What happens now is that there will be more player this offseason getting arrested as they will test Goodell to see if they can get away with more now.

In the end if Goodell doesn’t start getting tougher things will revert back to the way they were before the Personal Conduct policy.

Good night and good luck.

Dream on LT

Standard

According to ProFootballTalk.com running back Landainian Tomlinson believes that he can play for four more years in the National Football League on a young upcoming team.

The fact of the matter is Tomlinson will be lucky to even play again in the NFL.

Tomlinson is clearly in decline after years of abuse and punishment.

Also, the competition at running back in free agency just got crowded with former teammate Darren Sproles most likely hitting the market.

Also, there is the possibility that New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush will be cut as well.

Then there is April’s NFL Draft, which is suppose to be very deep.

In the end the only way that Tomlinson is going to play four more years is in a complementary role to someone else.

Tebow should rise on boards

Standard

Many fans of the National Football League are interested in where former Florida Gators quarterback Tim Tebow will go in April’s National Football League Draft.

After considering several factors Tebow’s stock will rise before the day of the draft.

First, the Combine will serve Tebow well as each team will be able to conduct an interview of Tebow.

According to the St. Petersburg Times, via ProFootballTalk.com, former NFL coach Sam Wyches stated, “I was around Montana and Boomer, and they would be at the top of the list of understand theory coming out of college. They understood concepts. This guy is right with them. I hope he gets a good coordinator and a good quarterback coach. If not, he’ll be smarter than they are.”

When Tebow conducts the interviews team will realize how smart he is, which will boost his stock.

Also, the other factor that should help is the fact that Wyche and several other coaches are working with Tebow to fix his mechanics in time for his Pro Day.

If Tebow is as accurate and has as much velocity as he did with his old motion teams will raise him up on their draft boards.

In the the end when all the predraft festivities are concluded Tebow should be a first round pick.

The Jaguars have the best chance

Standard

According to the Jacksonville Jaguars own website, via ProFootballTalk.com, the  team would also like to trade down to get more picks.

If there is any team that has a chance at doing just that the Jaguars have as at that point the cost of signing the draft picks is a  lot lower.

In the 2009 National Football League Draft wide receiver Michael Crabtree was taken 10th overall and the contract he signed was six years $32 million with $17 million guaranteed.

That is nothing compared to the six year $72 million contract with $41.75 million guaranteed for first overall pick quarterback Matt Stafford.

Also, at that point there is usually a player that slips out unexpectedly from the top 10.

In the end this is a extremely deep draft and there will most likely be very few trades in the first round, especially the top half of it.
