    Grade the Pats Draft: How Did BB/Nike Do?

    They got McGrone in the 5th round and Nixon in the 7th, both of whom had injuries last year, McGrone got hurt in November, cutting his season short and probably making 2021 a red shirt NFL season for him, Nixon broke his collar bone early in the season and missed most of his teams games.. I'll...

    Grade the Pats Draft: How Did BB/Nike Do?

    Thanks. Fairbanks was a great coach and talent evaluator as you mentioned. Blaming the referees/umpires/officials gets old, but that 1976 team got jobbed by a crooked piece of garbage, he basically admitted he made a bogus call on that and the pathetic thing is he wears it like a badge of...

    Grade the Pats Draft: How Did BB/Nike Do?

    Behind Belichick and Parcells, he's my third favorite Patriots coach. Not sure what happened between him and the Sullivan's that caused him to leave but what a wagon those 76-78 teams were, they 100% got screwed out of a Super Bowl win and had he hung around, I firmly believe he would have...

    Grade the Pats Draft: How Did BB/Nike Do?

    I gave it an A- if for no other reason than there was not a single WHO?? pick and they did not trade down/out of rounds to stockpile more picks later in the draft/next year. Between the draft and free agents, they have totally rebuilt their front 7, which was a mess last year and the skill sets...

    Pats Draft Rd.3/96: EDGE Ronnie Perkins

    Jamie Collins; he'll be forever known to me as the guy who got torched by the corpse of Owen Daniels in the 2016 AFCCG.

    NFL Draft Rd.2-3: Discussions, Rumors & Spoilers Gamethread

    This illustrates once again how much of a crap shoot the NFL draft actually is. The QB they got who a lot of people feel is NFL ready gets a C, Barnmore who an NFL executive claims is going to be a bust due to off the field issues with being late and takes plays off gets an A- and Perkins who...

    NFL Draft Rd.4-7: Everything Goes Gamethread

    That's a substantial human being right there. Holy smokes. He was one of the few highlights last night, as was Stanley Morgan. Run DMC and the faux Randy Savage were not, the latter got more air time that the commissioner, which I guess is not a bad thing.

    Geneo Grissom maybe? Another defensive end.

    NFL Draft Rd.2-3: Discussions, Rumors & Spoilers Gamethread

    I switched to the NFLN very early on; aside from Rich Eisen and his non stop babbling, it's better than ESPN. He's still trying to wrap his head around why Houston picked a QB earlier tonight.

    NFL Draft Rd.2-3: Discussions, Rumors & Spoilers Gamethread

    The "fan of the team drafting gets to sit in the broken down chair" gimmick is horrendous. And yet, it's far from the worst aspect of the draft coverage so far. The whole thing is cheesy and overdone.

    NFL Draft Rd.2-3: Discussions, Rumors & Spoilers Gamethread

    Considering one of the commentators on NFLN said "Is that Randy Savage?", I'd say no.
