Bradford would be foolish to holdout

Standard

Over the past four National Football League Drafts the three out of the four first overall picks were signed before the Draft even started.  That might be the case if Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford was selected first overall.

According to ProFootballTalk.com, Bradford could refuse to resign a pre-draft contract.

That would be the worst thing to do as the smart teams start negotiating with multiple picks at the same time.  That way they can get a deal done at the lowest possible price as contracts for rookies have spiraled out of control.

If Bradford would at the least slip to fourth overall to the Washington Redskins, but it’s not guaranteed they will take a quarterback as they also have a gaping hole at left tackle.

In the end, this year the draft is deep and anyone taking a stand for more money is foolish as teams always get their way.

Good night and good luck.

Bills can address left tackle before the Draft

Standard

One of the needs of the Buffalo Bills is an offensive tackle.  There is now one possibility to address the position without having to use or give up a first round pick in the upcoming National Football League Draft.

According to ProFootballTalk.com, Baltimore Ravens left tackle Jared Gaither is available for trade.  The reason being that he is a restricted free agent and most likely wants to get paid starting left tackle money.

According to the report,  a team offering a second round pick would get the conversation going.  That means the Ravens want a second round pick and something else, which is most likely a fourth round pick as well.

Gaither has started 27 games at left tackle since taking over for long time starting left tackle Jonathan Ogden who retired prior to the 2008 season.

Gaither has become expendable due to the selection of offensive tackle Michael Oher in the first round of last years NFL Draft.  Also, the Ravens most likely think that Oher will be the better of the two.

In the end, the Bills better jump in quick if they want Gaither as reportedly the Redskins have offered their second round pick already.

Here is some evidence

In an earlier post I wrote that women cannot be trusted with secrets, because of the way that women communicate with each other.  Well here is some evidence to back it up.

Here is the full article by Lynda R Williams, yes a different name appears as the author as it is Brett R Williams that does the writing, but asked his wife to write this one, from Articlebase.com:

Men Bond Differently Than Women Do

By: Brett R. Williams

Being the only female in my household has taught me a few things about the male of the species. In some ways men are quite different from women. I grew up with only sisters for siblings and when my husband and I got married there were a few things I noticed about men. One thing that really stands out is that men bond by doing things together.

When I bond with my girlfriends we have deep conversations, share intimate details of our lives and spend a lot of time expressing our feelings. Here is a story to illustrate this point, one day my husband Brett and I were at another couple’s house for dinner. Barb and I began talking and inquiring about each other’s lives; while we noticed that our husbands had gone outside with a shovel and a hammer. Curious, we followed them to find them repairing a wooden post next to a gate. I turned to Barb and said, “Can you imagine if you came to my house and I asked you to help me mop my floor or repair a sink?” We laughed, but the lesson was not lost on me. The men were bonding by participating in this act together.

The act the men participate in is not always a mundane chore; it could be cooking the steaks or going surfing. The point is that they are doing something together. My husband Brett recently went motorcycle riding with a guy friend. I marveled at guy bonding time once again, as there was no possibility of any talking while riding motorcycles.

Now here is the really interesting thing from a woman’s point of view. The activity the men bond over is satisfying and bonding for them, even if it never leads to any meaningful conversation. It is the shared experience connects them.

Now I have a husband who is an excellent communicator, but if you find you are having trouble getting your husband to talk with you about important issues, I suggest that you plan an outing. It can be as simple as walking the dog around the neighborhood together. Giving men something to do may put them in a place where they feel they are bonding with you. Creating that feeling of connection on their terms may help them move into a place where they can talk with you and listen to you.

Kelly was asked to go

Standard

According to the wife of former Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly, who is Jill Kelly, Kelly met up with former Florida Gators quarterback Tim Tebow for dinner Sunday.  A source has confirmed that Kelly was indeed asked by the franchise to attend.

I haven’t confirmed this, but I suspect that in addition to Kelly other members of the Bills were there as well, which probably included CEO Russ Brandon, general manager Buddy Nix and head coach Chan Gailey.

There was a report a while back that Tebow would meet with the Bills and this is probably that.

In the end, if the Bills want Tebow they will have to trade up from the second round in this April’s National Football League Draft to do so.

It goes to show u cannot trust women

Standard

Former Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly has been an advocate of former Florida Gators quarterback Tim Tebow.  As much as he loves his wife Jill Kelly he knows that you cannot trust women with somethings.

According to Jill Kelly’s Twitter page, via  ProFootballTalk.com, Jim had dinner with Tebow Sunday.  Most likely Jim met with Tebow on behalf of the Bills.

Jill like most other Bills fans wanted to know everything that went on.  However, she was rebuffed as Jim state that he isn’t going to, because she would post it on Twitter.

That was proven to be true as Jill posted that on Twitter page.

That is the problem with women you tell them something and they will turn around and blurt it out to someone else.  The reason being that women bond with each other verbally by telling the secrets that they know.

In the end, if you want something to remain a secret don’t tell your wife.
