Lol. Otherwise known as The Most Likely To Get AIDS Award.

What a joke. The sports media in the US are borderline ridiculous these days. Hard to watch a lot of this made up drama. Pathetic.

Guy has done nothing other than announce he's gay at a very dubious time (i.e. he's a very borderline draft pick, so he used his 'coming out' as a way to attract more attention and hopefully get the 'sympathy vote' out of the NFL (you know bc everyone in America is hoping and praying that the NFL drafts a gay dude, and if they don't, well then, the NFL is 'homophobic'!)).

Heard he might not get drafted - hoping he does not.

RE: NFL thread
can't believe Manziel is still out there. They are saying it could potentially be pick #26 before he gets taken. Nobody could have predicted that...he was slated as #4 in many, if not most, of the mock drafts.

I have to think Philly or KC will take him....he's dropped so low at this point.

Edit: Eagles trade 22nd pick to Browns who get Manziel - man that worked out good for Cleveland.

Manziel to Cleveland isn't surprising. Manziel to Cleveland at the 22nd spot is surprising. Either way, Cleveland got their guy. I wanted to see him somehow end up in Dallas or Houston for shits and giggles, but this will still be fun to watch.

Cleveland might have come away with a franchise corner and a star QB.

Well played, even if God hates Cleveland.

RE: NFL thread
BTW Manziel's sister looks pretty damn good IMO. Skinny brunette girl with some cleavage too - the skinny factor puts her in the top 10% of American women on its own.

In watching this draft it's incredible how many fat black 20-something women there are hanging out with their now millionaire boyfriends/fuckbuddies/friends or whatever. Every time they pan to the guys celebrating with their family & friends about 4-5 overweight women get showcased. Pretty scary - no wonder African-American men are running away from these fatties.

RE: the Niners, I haven't heard that much about Jimmie Ward. However his scouting report seems very positive, with negative comments about him talking about being somewhat undersized for safety. It is very likely that the Niners will start him in the slot as a Carlos Rodgers replacement and groom him to eventually take FS, with Reid moving to SS. I like it, kind of the Niners version of Earl Thomas. Slot Corner is a significant position of need and if he can start right away and play well, I have no reason to doubt HarBaalke.

By selecting Bridgewater that high, the Vikings have officially admitted that Ponder was a mistake. There is no other way to read this type of decision - you simply do not invest this much (first round pick) in a new QB when the guy you've got is already taking you where you'd like to be (unless he's reasonably close to retirement, as Favre was when the Pakcers selected Rodgers).

Did you read this? What did you think?

Imo, if I were a GM and had to draft a QB to start, I'd go with Teddy. He's the most ready to step into a pro style offense and play at a high level. Bortles may have more upside but I consider him more of a project.

I would have gone with Teddy as well. The article was dead on in describing the reason Bortles gets so much hype:

Quote:As former Chicago Bears GM Jerry Angelo wrote for the Sideline View: “The reason I like Bortles best is because he’s the prototype of what successful NFL quarterbacks historically look like.”

In short, they see tradition. But while Bortles may look like a “traditional” quarterback when he’s in a T-shirt and shorts at a workout, he doesn’t play a traditional game. If teams have Bortles atop their draft boards because of how he looks rather than how he plays, they’re going to be disappointed. “When [Bortles, Bridgewater, and Manziel] walk into a room, one looks like a quarterback,” CBS reported one team GM saying. “The other two? Not so much.”

Unfortunately, “looks like a quarterback” too often means big, tall, and white. What’s more, it’s not a very effective way to select a signal caller.

Couldn't agree more, and I'm tired of this "tradition" BS in football governing how QBs are selected and respected. The game has changed dramatically during the last couple of decades. We have positions/roles on teams that didn't even exist 20 years ago, and athletes who've been getting better and better over time. The quarterback position is not immune to change, and the NFL needs to understand that. I think Bortles has been overrated because of what he looks like and Teddy will turn out to be the better pro in the long term, but we'll see.

A bit dissapointed my Jets took a safety. I was hoping for a WR or a TE. Was hoping we'd trade to get another veteran CB, but there's still time for that.

RE: NFL thread
Pretty surprised Manziel dropped as far as he did. I feel a little bad for him getting stuck with the Browns, but at least if he blossoms he can make that team his own. I do think he'll be a star of sorts but the Browns are definitely a tough turnaround given their historic ineptitude.

I am also pretty bummed that my Eagles reached so high with Marcus Smith. I like Marcus but I was hoping we could nab him in the second round sure as hell not spend a first on him. I don't know there are days I feel great about this team others I just, to be honest I'm not even over the whole DeSean Jackson debacle.

To be honest, it never really began. He's serviceable, but doesn't look like he'd get you to the next level. Hence the Bridgewater move.

Personally, I like him. Pull up some highlights of his Louisville career and see how smart he is with his check downs and pocket awareness. Reminds me of a taller Russell Wilson. Wish him the best.

Manziel was part of the hype machine, it was hilarious seeing his face as they called out other players.
Dallas passing on him was surprising, considering Romo just had back surgery.

Something about that draft and Manziel reminded me of Aaron Rodgers on his draft day. The cameras were trained on him the whole time and he was just sitting there smilling about not being drafted. Definetely and alpha guy. I'm the only person who likes his personality because I know behind the scenes he's having a good time and absolutely slaying pussy.
