    Nah... its voodoo... dude is 41 years old and just won the Superbowl... on a team that goes pass first, pass second, pass third, and pass some more. He's not hiding behind a great defense, some superstar running back, or marquis receivers, he's just an inexplicably good, old-assed 41 year old QB. I know you hate him, but that's all there is to it. The man is amazing.

    I'm blaming crossroads-at-midnight voodoo magic at this point.

    Sony Micheal appears to be a legit running back (first round pick for a valid reason and the only touchdown scorer in the Super Bowl) and their defense held LA to 3 points.

    That said, I can't really dispute that Brady is GOAT.

    Now there’s rumors going around that the Cards don’t really want Murray after all. I never believed they wanted him in the first place but with the window closing on any buyers for Josh Rosen it’s going to be really hard to take Murray even if they intended to.

    Edit: then the next question is if the Cards don’t want him, who will? There’s not another team that needs a QB other than possibly the Bucs and then definitely the Giants. But even then, would they choose Murray or someone else ?

    I think the Giants are going to spend another season riding Saquon Barkley like a three dollar mule before making any long term quarterback decisions

    The latest rumor is the Giants taking Jones from Duke. This just seems really bizarre.
    With the Bears not picking in the first couple of rounds, I really haven't been paying as much attention as I usually would. But I still don't regret the why. ;)

    Wouldn't surprise me. But it does raise the question of why you'd treat your high first round pick as expendable - doing that with a 3rd or 4th round pick is one thing, but #2?

    Barry Sanders was pick #3 and he was treated exactly in this fashion... so this isn't without precedent.

    The Lions at least pretended they were looking to build a team around him.

    and then proceeded to ride his back like a $3 rented mule until he finally realized that the team was going nowhere and walked away while he could still walk under his own power.

    I know that. And then there's Walter Payton. But that isn't going to keep me from questioning it especially in a time (unlike pre 2000 ish) where it's next to impossible to ride just an RB to success.

    Two late first round picks might improve that situation. This draft is so deep in D line that even twenty picks in there should be something for Seattle.

    I meant in the short term. There's nobody that late in the first draft who can be an immediate impact player in the way Frank Clark already is. I could be wrong of course (and hope I am), but I'm pretty sure I'm right.

    We're thin at Wide Receiver, have no good Free Safety after ETIII left, and still have a below average O-line. I've been looking at mock drafts very closely for literally the past several months ever since the Super Bowl so I'm already aware of that.

    The problem is, there's no guarantee that ANY player will be an impact player, whereas we already have the guarantee with Frank Clark. We have to draft player(s) who can compensate for what we lost in Clark, which is obviously possible but I don't think is likely.

    One thing I will, with regard to us obtaining a first AND second round pick from KC, is that it makes the Lions obtaining Trey Flowers from the Pats look like a steal by comparison.

    Ok, question for the day. What pick will the first QB go and which one will it be. I'll take the long odds and say, not in the top 4 and Murray won't be the first taken.
    Make your predictions.

    Are you convinced it will be Murray?

    I think it's all smoke.

    I'd like to think they're not that stupid; Rosen wasn't exactly put in a position to succeed. But the Kingsbury hire smacked of panic to me and this would definitely be a panic pick. So I'm not betting against it.

    I don't think the Cards will take Murray. The reason being they haven't found someone who wants Rosen. If they can't find a trade partner for Rosen then they have two back to back first round QBs. It will all but guarantee that picking at least one of them was a waste, and that will create locker room problems with two starting QBs on the roster. Not to mention you've got to play to the draft and none of the best players on the board are quarterbacks. It makes no sense to get a QB with the top pick.

    Washington takes Haskins at number three. Yes, I'm out on multiple limbs here.
