The Wedge Scouting Report: Baker Mayfield, Oklahoma

What a miserable end to the Dolphins season!  Actually what a miserable season.  Hmmm…Let’s see if I can line up Buffalo in my sights….

Wedgeand Cannon

Ehhh…Whats the point?  It’s already a dump!  There is nothing this astro cannon can do that they can’t do to themselves or haven’t done to themselves…

May as well start thinking about the NFL draft and get ready for 2018.  And let’s start with the top – let’s start with the Heisman Trophy winner, Baker Mayfield.

Mayfield1

Okay, settle down Tannehill lovers.  I’m just looking at all options.  Besides….we never draft the guys I look at anyway…so this is probably a blessing.

Mayfield2

The Positives:  If you don’t know about Mayfield by now – WAKE UP.  There is a reason he won the the Heisman Trophy.  He’s been dominating College Football this year and has Oklahoma competing for a National Championship (at the time this is written).

Just look at his numbers.  Over 14,000 yards in four years (including his first year at Texas Tech), 129 Touchdowns and only 29 interceptions with a career passer rating of 176.00.  Mayfield had 40 touchdowns in 2016 and 41 in 2017.  Mayfield is probably the best Oklahoma QB since Sam Bradford and some experts since he is a better pro prospect.

He is 8th on NCAA all time passing yards and 6th in touchdowns.  His 2017 QB rating is first in NCAA history surpassing his 2016 QB rating which is 2nd all-time.

We can go on forever about his stats – they are impressive.  But beyond the numbers, Mayfield is confident and competitive and loved by his teammates.

OU VS TULANE

Weaknesses: Okay…I know he’s smallish.  He’s listed at 6’1 and might be even smaller. Although he has been durable at Oklahoma, some question whether at that size he can be that durable in the pros.

He’s not a great athlete either.  He’s not a bad one – he’s just not going to make heads turn if/when he runs the 40 at the combine.

Oh – and then there is the attitude.  He’s a crotch grabber…I guess Mayfield comes off a bit cocky.  I’ve even seen him compared to Johnny Manziel. YUK!

Mayfiled3

The Alien Dust:  He’s a gamble.  What front office will take that gamble?  There are many great college quarterbacks that don’t produce in the NFL.  Mayfield is smallish and has that personality that gets under some human’s skin.  But not this alien.

I actually love him.  I think h has a chance of being a great NFL QB.  His consistency in college should not be ignored.  He’s a natural passer with great pocket presence and does a great job of improving when a play breaks down.

That confidence doesn’t bother me.  This alien thinks a lot of humans may regret passing on Mayfie;ld.  Currently I’m hearing he is the 4th ranked QB behind Rosen, Darnold and Allen – but this is a weird draft, and a QB like Mayfield of Jackson (Louisville) may not get selected as high as the other quarterbacks – but still have a better career.  The QB prospect analysis always has had inconsistent results.

MayfiledCannon

But the inability to predict success won’t stop this alien from comparing Mayfield to an alien weapon of destruction.  Mayfield is the lethal Astro Cannon!

    I went to St Andrews High which burned down and was replaced by West Ashley High.
    But Darius went to Middleton High with my little brother which was St Andrews Jr High went i went there (same campus).
    Bennie Shell went there as well who was the little brother of the great NFL Raiders player Art Shell who i think also went to your high school. (BW was an all black school back in the days Art Shell went there.)
    My mom went to Chicora High because her dad worked at the Navy Yard
    My dad went to Charleston High. btw

  2. Tim Knight says:

    Lou, I agree with this.

    “You’re building a team, you’re taking the best players you can for the team, not taking as many as you can.”

      • Tim Knight says:

        LOL, I’m more about impact players than I am more chips. I think this team has some depth. We need a few more impact players throughout the roster. But we have to play better fundamental football and with more discipline regardless. That’s on the coaches to do a better job and find the players willing to buy in. I think things got out of control this year. It has to get cleaned up.

  3. Tim Knight says:

    Stanger, I do think we have playmakers on this team. Our problem has been consistency on offense and killing our own drives. The defense is always playing from behind and then the offense tried to make a run late in the game and mostly fell short. We ended the season doing just that. We need to be in more contested games and play with some leads. It’s no secret the offense didn’t score enough.

    Not saying the defense was great, but they were playing with no support too much of the time. I think the defense needs less work than the offense does.

    • and that means the defense lacks talent.

      • Tim Knight says:

        They’re also a pretty new group with quite a few young guys. I like the core moving forward if we can play competent offense. Add a few more pieces and maybe they can be really good. Young players improving and more chemistry in 2018 could make a real difference. That’s my opinion on it but I’m really not that concerned about the defense if we start scoring more on offense. You can’t win many games with 0, 3 and 6 on the board at the half.

    • stangerx says:

      We definitely have playmakers, just not enough to be thinking ring. But while do think the D has an arrow up on it, for sure the O being able to hold up drives comes into play. Seems that brings us back to the OL….but that is where we were last year at this time too.

      I’d actually be cool with OL in our first two picks assuming we keep the team we had, but that wouldn’t leave much room for upgrades elsewhere.

      • Tim Knight says:

        There will also be FA and you can add upgrades without the big signings. We’re going to be parting ways with some guys and getting more cap back. I would prefer we don’t double up at any position in the 1st and 2nd. I know C, G and T are different positions, but I’d prefer we won’t double up on the OL with our first two picks.

  4. can give a shit about the nfl playoffs

  5. Tim Knight says:

    Let’s say 3 QBs go before we pick in the draft. Not saying we won’t take a QB we like at #11 but for this point let’s say the ones we would have taken are off the board. We have a shot at the best 8 prospects at every other position not counting a K or P. LOL

    Who do think will be there and who would you take? I know it’s early but at this time I don’t think it’s that difficult this high in the draft.

  6. BailBondMike says:

    Naples. I lived in apts on West Ashley both times I was stationed there in the Navy. The Palms (I think) during Hugo and down by the Citadel Mall the first time. Yes, I was in the minority at BW HS. I had a good time at that school. BW was the beginning of Art Shell’s legend. I moved to Indiana as a junior. Came back to Charleston in the Navy from 82′ to 84′ then again from 87′ to 92′. Tried to go back there again but they were closing the base and there were no billets available at the weapon station in Goose Creek or at the Navy Brig. I ended up going to the Naval Hospital in Beaufort, SC instead from 95′ to 98′. That is a gem of a little town itself.

    • naplesfan2010 says:

      I love Beaufort. We used to go down there to go surfing at Hunting Island.
      In high school I lived way out Highway 61 near Magnolia Gardens (Drayton Plantation).
      I grew up downtown right next to the walls of The Citadel (the real one) and Hampton Park. (Rutledge Avenue)

  7. naplesfan2010 says:

    I absolutely hate trading down, because every time we do it, we get two OK players instead of one stud, which we then complain about for years. “We need playmakers” and “Our players are mediocre” we hear for years.

    In fact I would rather package our 6th and 2 7ths and get a high 5th, because we already have lots of ok players. We need impact players. Or package our two 4ths and get a 3rd. I know most guys don’t agree, but unless you see some quality in the draft at those “low value” positions.such aws Safety or OG AND we have a need there, then those picks are just wasted and we end up with 4 or 5 guys at one position and none of them are great. So we cut them and they go play elsewhere.

    • stangerx says:

      I’m with you on that on the lower picks, but then every year seems am hoping to trade down with the top ones as well. Obviously depends who is there, but say for #11 we could get #19 and a mid-2nd…..that always seems good to me.

  8. Tim Knight says:

    Lou, I think Nelson is the type of player we need. We need to add a stud prospect on the OL.

    • well, if we went that way I couldn’t argue with it and one of the reasons why is because offensive linemen usually have super long careers compared to some of the guys at other positions.

      I’d be good with Chubb or Smith as well even though we aren’t going to have a shot at Chubb. DB is kind of tough. I’ve seen both Fitzpatrick and Jackson mocked to us and I just don’t think we need to go with db that high right now.

  9. stangerx says:

    We have to see about re-signings and FA, but what position would we not take in the first?

    Only ones can come up with right now are safety and DT. We keep James and Landry….then would add in OT and WR. And maybe C, but seems most of those could line up at G (as could some OTs as well).

    • the ONLY position we should definitely be targeting in free agency is a solid starting offensive lineman. if we bring in anyone else like another rb to add to the stable, depth on the o-line, another TE or any of player then so be it. but a starting-caliber offensive guard is the #1 priority and if that’s ALL we get then I’d consider it a success.

    • stangerx says:

      Agree with you on G being top priority in FA, and that would free us up in the draft as well. Same time, get that G and it wouldn’t stop us from taking another in the first.

    • rich0322 says:

      Personally, I wouldn’t take WR or RB in the 1st, unless Barkley was available. With most rules favoring the offense, I would almost never take a WR in the 1st, unless he was the next Jerry Rice. Lol.

  10. naplesfan2010 says:

    We need a stud TE and a stud OG and a stud RB. I also would draft a stud EDGE rusher if one came to us. If we got those 4 and I mean we snagged starters with a real chance of being in the pro bowl, then that would be a successful draft and we would go to the playoffs. (figuring FA will replace what we lose in FA and fill in some depth)

    • rich0322 says:

      I agree on those 4 positions too.

    • Tim Knight says:

      You think we need a stud RB or do you mean a complimentary back to pair with Drake, a physical runner?

      • rich0322 says:

        I wouldn’t say we need a stud back, but I wouldn’t mind something more than complimentary. …I wouldn’t mind a guy like Nick Chubb or Royce Freeman.

      • Tim Knight says:

        What is it that you don’t like about Drake? He showed me he’s better than I thought he was. With a full season he could be a 1,200+ back and a threat as a receiver.

      • rich0322 says:

        I like Drake. I just believe you need 2 RB that can carry the load if needed.

  11. Tim Knight says:

    That’s how I would double up on the OL. One in FA and the other in the draft. Then guys like Larsen, Davis, Steen, Brendel, Asiata and Smith compete for depth. Though I do think Davis could be our RT if we let James walk.

  12. rich0322 says:

    Anyone watching the game? The officials are at it again.

  13. Tim Knight says:

    Finding a younger version of a Mike Tolbert is what I’d be looking for at RB. Don’t need to pay a lot or draft someone high to find that. But you get physical production from his touches. That depends on if we re-sign Williams. If we don’t, then I might want to find a back who is physical yet also dynamic to pair with Drake. Like a Murray/Henry combo.

  14. Randy says:

    ORob,
    It isn’t necessarily true that when you run more you win. Lots of times teams run more because they’re winning. You can’t just look at the rushing attempts and assume they won BECAUSE they ran a lot. It may actually be the reverse.

    • Tim Knight says:

      ^
      Trailing in games basically every week is not going to produce high rushing numbers. That’s something we have to fix.

  15. rich0322 says:

    Alex Smith with a near perfect 1st half.

  16. BailBondMike says:

    Naples, loved Hunting Island. I remember when they were filming parts of GI Jane out there. Beaufort was a fishing and shrimping paradise for me.
    Hampton Park is beautiful. I used to go to the Charleston Royals/Charleston Rainbows games at College Park right there.
    I also went hunting way out off Hwy 61 around Middleton Place before you would turn off 61 to go to Summerville.
    Did you live around Shadowmoss Plantation GC? I played golf there 2 or 3 times.

    • naplesfan2010 says:

      I lived in Drayton on the Ashley, got married in Magnolia Gardens, and had my rehearsal dinner at Middleton Place plantation house. I was actually born on James Island and lived on Folly Island, Isle of Palms, and Mt. Pleasant.
      My grandfather had a 100 acre farm in Summerville, actually Ladson.
      I used to walk to the baseball field but back then it was the Charleston White Sox.
      Shadow Moss was built while I was in high school.

  17. Tim Knight says:

    Enough of is it a catch or not when everyone knows it is. All this ball moving while still in possession is friggin stupid. Do away with that nonsense. At least they got it right.

    That was a great play by Smith and Robinson with time running down to get the TD over the FG. That was big time football.

  18. naplesfan2010 says:

    If the drop off from Drake to #2RB is too great, then several things happen.
    1- the other DCs know this and know that we are not running that 2nd guy as much so when he’s in, they can reassign to take out our TE or slot WR or whatever.
    2-If Drake gets injured, then we are in Big Trouble and even if he is dinged up, then we are in trouble for that game(s).
    3-If Drake goes into a slump, fumbles, etc. there’s no one to get us over the rough patch and when we take him out for a breather, then we have an inferior attack.
    4-no competition for Drake and no inspiration either

    • Tim Knight says:

      The great IF debate. 🙂

      Naples, you can’t upgrade areas of need and have awesome depth everywhere. The Chiefs lost Kelce in this game. They don’t have another Kelce. Maybe a guy can step up for a game or two, but that’s rare that you have two TEs like Kelce.

  19. Tim Knight says:

    Alex Smith is an example of how I think Tannehill’s career could go – gets better with age. RT is off to a better start than Smith’s career was after the same amount of years. Similar skill set. Both guys excel with a balanced attack. They’re more rhythm QBs with mobility than drop back and gunsling it all day. What the Chiefs do with their RBs in the passing game is what I think Gase wants to do.

    I hope I can say this without starting a crazy Tannehill debate. I really do believe this and have thought this for awhile.

  20. Randy says:

    Wow, i have never seen that before.

  21. BailBondMike says:

    Naples, we had a beach house on Folly Island. I remember catching a ton of blue crab on the rock breakers.
    My first Navy tour in Charleston, I moonlighted as a lifeguard on the IOP. It depended on who the mayor was on whether they would fund having lifeguards. My roommate was dating the head lifeguard (who was the mayor’s daughter). She gave us both jobs since we were Navy Corpsmen and CPR certified. Also because we were in the Navy, she figured we could swim well. LOL
    My favorite bar was the Windjammer on the IOP used to play a lot of volleyball out there.
    When were you in HS there?

    • naplesfan2010 says:

      I have been to the windjammer about a thousand times. Beach volleyball there was so fun. Hott String Bikinis cavorting around the net and lounging everywhere. Good times.

  22. ElephantRider says:

    I have never been to Charleston.
    🙂

    • Tim Knight says:

      I have once. It was in February a few years ago so it was a bit colder but we enjoyed it. Would like to have been there when it was warmer though.

  23. Tim Knight says:

    Wow, how did the Chiefs blow their lead? I’ve missed a lot of the 2nd half.

  24. Ken says:

    Marriotta threw a TD pass to himself

  25. Tim Knight says:

    Entertaining game.

  26. ElephantRider says:

    Yep.
    They’ve done nothing 2nd half. Had 6 yards I think in the 3rd

    • Tim Knight says:

      Wow!!! They were rolling in the 1st half and shut down in the 2nd half. Some credit has to go to the Titans defense. They were swarming all day and maybe they cleaned up their game in the 2nd half. I’m sure the loss of Kelce hurt KC, but who knows. Maybe the Titans were just better in the 2nd half.

      Very entertaining game and it reminded me of football back in the day. It was physical and for the most part they were allowed to play that way. That’s football and the way the NFL should be. Call obvious penalties and get away from the ticky tack killing great plays. And calling penalties early on throughout the game making it unwatchable. That ruins the game and the experience. Wake up NFL!!!

    Very interesting. One of my former teammates and now work colleague played football at Lackawanna Jr College, too. It really IS a small world… and it seems Pennsylvania is ‘The Cradle of QB Civilization’, if you will.

  28. naplesfan2010 says:

    Why didn’t KC run that rookie back? Didn’t he lead the league?

  29. Tim Knight says:

    KC, one of the toughest places to play on the road is now 0-6 at home in their last 6 home playoff games. There are so many quirky stats in the NFL that are surprising. The Phins usually beat SB and playoff teams previously or in the future every year, but we play like a bad team too often. Not just during Gase’s term, before that. We beat 3 teams this year in the playoffs. It’s not like we can’t beat good teams. We’re not consistently good and that has to change.

    _______________________________________________

    Hi Randy,
    Miami runs more when they are successful at it, they bail on the run game when they fall behind most likely because they are not successful at running the ball. We may break off a 30 yard run but on 1st down for the most part we are getting stuffed, in fact losing yardage which puts us in long down and distance, which makes us resort to the pass, which makes us not run the ball, which makes us predictable. an easy read.
    I’m not saying to continue running the ball on 3rd and 15 with the game on the line but not being able to run the ball puts us in those situations.
    Go to NFL.COM STATS, look at every game we played this year, we ran the ball over 23 times in 6 of those games, we won all 6, we ran the ball 16 times or less in the other 10 games and we lost every one.
    this is not a coincidence.
    IMO We need to focus on establishing a bread and butter running attack, one that wont lose yardage, we need a low to the ground heavy RB. one that will pick up 4 yards on 1st down consistently.
    we also need an OL coach who knows run blocking schemes, a lot of times i’ve seen we ran the ball and the OL were man on man blocking, no one was pulling, and the limited time i had seen an OL pulling it was a lame attempt.
    I’m sure we need to be successful passing as well but from where i sit you fix the running game it will bleed over to our defense and this whole team will be more successful.

  31. ElephantRider says:

    That non fumble call really hurt KC as well. Lead to 3 points for TN. It was early when they were rolling the Titans…..so maybe the refs had to come in and make a bit of momentum….

  32. ocalarob says:

    What the Chiefs do with their RBs in the passing game is what I think Gase wants to do.
    ___________________________________________________________

    I certainly hope not, what has it done for the Chiefs? who won today? was it the smash mouth titans or the cinderella Chiefs?

    • Tim Knight says:

      Rob, the Chiefs utilize their backs in the passing game very well. All season. They do a lot of what we did in the past under Shula with Marino. 5 OL, 2 WR and a TE, or 3 WR and two RBs in shotgun flanking the QB. You can pick up the dog blitz that way better than at the LOS once it’s past you. We did it a few times this year. I think it works if you have backs that can pass pro and catch, and we do.

      It doesn’t mean don’t establish the running game. You can talk about other stuff without saying the running game isn’t a factor. 🙂

    #FloridaState CB Tarvarus McFadden officially declares for the 2018 NFL Draft. Didn’t have the 2017 season most expected, but his traits are intriguing.
    ———
    Tarvarus (6’2″, 205) is the size we desire at the CB position and he had 8 INTs in ’16. I’m not sure we’ll highly target him with the emergence of Xavien Howard and with Cordrea Tankersley coming along in his rookie season, but if he’s the BPA going by our board, we might take him if he falls to the 2nd round.

    Officially: Chucky’s back!!!

    • mf13ss says:

      And yes… I’m already resigned to the fact we’re not taking Penny as early as he’ll go (2nd Round, IMO).

      • Tim Knight says:

        Why do we feel the need to replace or push Drake? The guy has shown us he’s a difference maker. I don’t get it. Can anyone already on the team ever be praised?

        I see a player on the rise. Yes let’s make RB a priority too. Oy!

      • I’m going to be interested to see what they do with the rb’s this offseason; if we pursue Williams with a bit longer term contract or let him walk, if we bring in anyone else thru the draft or even thru FA or if we settle for what we’ve got with Smith and Perry along with Drake.

  38. mf13ss says:

    This is another good read. It’s about the top QBs in the ’18 Draft and how they stand up to Bill Parcells’ 7 rules to drafting one. I’m high on the two who graded 7/7…

  40. Ha!! Imagine being a Chiefs fan right now

  41. pheloniusphish says:

    I think Miami needs impact players on both sides of the ball and pretty much any position is in play with the 11th pick. I would exclude only Safety, CB, and RB. Those positions need depth, not starters. If Mayfield or one of the other top QB is available and the BPA they should take them. At worst you have trade bait, at best your QB of the future. I also think the defense is in need of as much help as the offense. It was unreliable and not very good. Alonzo hasn’t been the playmaker hoped for (just adequate), Wake is tailing off, and Suh doesn’t play a game changing position (he does, but you have to have the complimentary piece that takes advantage of the double and triple teams he draws). Maybe Harris and McMillan are part of that, but who knows. They need OL, TE, and a true #1 WR. Parker ain’t it. On the OL I would not be disappointed if they took even a LT and kicked Tunsil back to guard. Definitely need a replacement in place for Pouncy. I think they will let James walk and try to bring him back cheap.

    • ocalarob says:

      I would exclude only Safety, CB, and RB. Those positions need depth, not starters.
      _____________________________________________
      who do we have behind Howard? unproven players, taking a CB at #11 would be a great choice.
      we need a move the yard stick big low to the ground bruiser at RB, we don’t have that.

      So i would think it’s safe to assume that CB and RB are huge positions of need along with the OL.

      • pheloniusphish says:

        Lippett will be back, McCain did fine as a nickel. Not a priority. As for RB, you can find one in the back of the draft.

    ********************
    Oh we zeroed in Week 2 against the Saints, and also Week 3 against the Jets for 59:59, and Week 7 against the Ravens. That’s zeroing in more than just about any team in the NFL

      how bout the 4 games we won among’st those? was the glass 43% empty or 57% full?

      Can’t bore me with that. Found my wife there.
      Charleston is known for large amounts of beautiful women.

  46. BailBondMike says:

    Tim, in response to you yesterday, if 3 QB’s go in the top 10, Nelson won’t go in the top 10 and I am looking to trade down. Some on here don’t like that idea because we would be “trading down for lesser talent”. I agree and disagree with that. There are only 5 to 10 or so “can’t miss” prospects in every draft. Everyone else is a crap shoot on how they will translate to the NFL game, IMO. How is trading down 5 spots or so and getting the guy you want (Nelson) considered trading down for lesser talent when you don’t know how some are going to pan out? We need a plug and play OG and one of the top TE’s for sure who (again IMO) need to be taken in the first 3 rounds (OG top 2 rounds). Trading down and gaining that extra pick would allow us to target more needs like our future center, a stud LB, a replacement for Landry if he is not resigned (see Anthony Miller), a second TE, a DE prospect, a RB (see Royce Freeman), or even a QB. An extra pick in the top 3 rounds would not be trading down for lesser talent in this particular draft. It would be a huge bonus, IMO. Now, if a “can’t miss” player (like Barkley) is there at #11 do you pull the trigger? If he is there and someone else wants him, the value of #11 just increased. That’s where my hands get sweaty and I start second guessing myself. LOL

    OK Lou, let me have it, LOL. I know, if we trade down 5 spots and miss out on Nelson, then we traded down for lesser talent. Or did we? I just know you can’t say we are trading down for lesser talent until we actually get to our pick and see what’s up when it’s our turn. It’s the beauty of the draft.

    Yeah Mike they took it a little too literal for a few games. Rest easy though Tannehill will be back.

    I support a themeless off season. No stupid sayings or tee shirts just show up and work.

    “who do we have behind Howard? unproven players, ”

    Rob, that is what Phish was saying. We need depth at CB but we NEED a plug and play OL and TE. Now, if that “can’t miss” CB prospect is there at #11, you can pull the trigger but you will really need to hit on that OL prospect. If it’s me, that just makes #11 more valuable to a trade partner. Normally, I am a BPA guy in the 1st round but not this year. I am targeting Nelson. But that is just me. LOL

    Lou, I got you and that would probably be the smartest thing to do.

    I can’t believe the Titans are advancing. This was such a screwed up season, not just for us. Missed a big opportunity this year in my opinion.

    Agreed. We should be a playoff team.
    The only thing we didn’t do was freaking Zero In

    *******
    We missed a big opportunity this season
    That’s what really upsets me and has me questioning Gase

    • BailBondMike says:

      Right, where was that week 13 and week 14 team all season??????

    • Ken says:

      We lost our starting QB and had trash playing behind him, lost our starting MLB and starting CB at the start of the season. We never had an opportunity this year. This is why I don’t question Gase at this time.

  52. BailBondMike says:

    Pig, I agree, where was the week 13 and week 14 team all season????

  53. BailBondMike says:

    So, next season as the team with a lesser record, we have to play the tougher teams on the road while the better team (Pats) get to play them at home? WTF is that? We have the Packers and Vikings on the road and the Pats get them at home.

  54. BailBondMike says:

    Ken, I know what you are saying IRT Pig above and I agree with that. My questions is where was that team against the Bronco’s(away) and Pats at home who seemed so prepared and a team on a mission? Where was that team the other 14 weeks. I mean we beat 2 other good teams in the Chargers and Titans but they still didn’t look like the team who stomped the Bronco’s in every phase of the game and then put it to Brady the next game. My guess, it was a combination of what you mentioned and a young coaching staff who didn’t know how to overcome it.

    • Ken says:

      The Broncos were a bad team. The Pats were missing some key players, most notably Gronk, Matt Cassel started for the Titans and the Chargers missed a makeable field goal.

      • The Flying Pig says:

        We should have beat the Bills and the Chiefs

        For that matter the Raiders too

        We were a really undisciplined team – but for all the dumb penalties I bet we are in the playoffs

    My wife says what the hell is Bill Shate day?

  56. Tim Knight says:

    BBM, Nelson might be BPA for us. He is a stud prospect and a need. He would not be reach to me though I know some people find drafting a guard high boring. LOL

  57. The Flying Pig says:

    Ramsay is amazingly. I’m so jealous of that draft the jags had with Ramsay and jack 1 and 2 – what a draft

  58. BailBondMike says:

    Ken, ya got me there, LOL.

  59. Ken says:

    Man Borttles sucks

  60. son of a son of a shula says:

    The refs stole the Bucs game from us

  61. Rockphin says:

    I feel even worse about the Dolphins after watching the Bills and Jaguas play in the playofs. It feels kind of like taking a couple big gulps out of your beer and then realizing it’s not your beer it’s a warm beer from 2 hours ago with cigarettes put out in it

    Don’t know why but stuck in my head is Madonna’s material girl but saying Litterial Green instead of material girl.

    Living in a Litterial world
    And I am a Litterial Green…

    you guys all know the feeling should I just let myself hurl and get it over with? Sweaty weak kneed, mouth-watering entirely too much start feeding a little bit too fast
