    Regular Season Schedule

    They like division games for Thursday night because the travel is typically on the shorter side.

    I wasn't thinking that it should take the whole season (but there IS a lot of 'new'...coaches, playbooks, players, etc.....and the modern practice rules negotiated by the players union limits how much practicing you can do - - this is where teams with continuity have an advantage). Still though, I'm hoping that by the 4th or 5th game Baker and his receivers, old & new, will be in sync. The OL will also have to play well together...which is a concern.

    Not me. I knew we were gonna suck after the 10-6 season. I told people, "We don't have a QB! Derick Anderson sucks! He can throw it 70 yards but he can't complete a 5 yard crossing pattern on 3rd down." THIS time we HAVE a QB. (and much more) THIS time it's a totally different feeling.......for ME anyway. THIS time I'm telling people, "Yup, we're good on paper. We just gotta make sure that those pieces of paper do it on the actual football field."

    ...it's just plain weird...it's mid April.....and the draft is so, ho-hum. On draft night we can take the wife out to dinner and a movie. (in theory) We're used to having multiple 1st round picks....one of em' being top 3. ....and I'll say, "I want the tallest QB with the best mechanics." And somebody else would say, "So long as we don't take one with pick 22. It's cursed." ...it's just plain weird...

    Yeah, that ultra is horrid. It's like drinking bad water.

    The Pick At 49

    To me...Duke has value. (that and a quarter will get you a phone call) He was our best offensive weapon one year. He's a smart football player. Baker utilizes him out of the backfield. And we certainly could use him to spell Chubb for those first 8 weeks. And I'd like having him on the field for third downs from week 9 on...

    The Pick At 49

    What trade value does Duke really have? If you were to trade him straight up for a draft pick, what round do you think you could get from somebody? I think you'd be lucky to get a 4th.

    The Pick At 49

    Of course he is. And he's considering NOT trading back into round 1. And he's considering moving up in rnd 2...and not. - He's considering all options...including as to whether next year's draft class might be strong or weak. Let's say that we wanted to trade back into round 1, say, pick 29 with KC. We would have to give up our 2nd rnd pick, our 3rd rnd pick, and our fist 5th rounder. (according to the draft value chart) - Or our 2nd, 3rd and Duke.... I think trading into round 1 would require someone that they absolutely loved, sliding down the draft board towards the end of the round. I place the odds as 'slim'. ------------------------------------------------------- ------ 1st ever picture of a black hole was released around 9am this morning -- way cool --------
  12. ...I hear ya. At last year's TC Jackson had the OL coach going to plan 'Z' at tackle. You're saying that the drop-off from mid to high 1st round tackles to 2nd & 3rd rounders is so huge that you might as well just take a pot shot at a 6th, 7th or undrafted guy. That's a theory. I'm concerned about our OL...because now we have the RG to cross our fingers about too.

    The Pick At 49

    Personally, I think he's just throwin' stuff out there so that everyone knows he's open for business, but actually has no 'real' intentions........of course if someone that they absolutely loved is sliding to the bottom of the round, all bets are off.

    The Pick At 49

    You can't teach speed. - He's fast. ...quite a crap-shoot trying to determine who pick #49 will be...and I wouldn't be surprised to see us move around in the second round. (No 1st round pick for us...but we have one of the best receivers in the game to place along side of Landry, Njoku & Calllaway/Higgins/Willies.....so far we're having a great draft)
