It wouldn't be the NFL draft if Bill Belichick didn't draft a guy nobody had ever heard of.


One guy had him mocked in Round 8, the other undrafted.

I bet Kirk Cousins isn't the happiest guy to be drafted by the Redskins as a back-up instead of somewhere where he could have a shot at starting at some point.

Listening to the newest press conference with Mike Holmgren and Pat Shurmur, they don't expect to get rid of Colt McCoy, so I'm guessing that either Seneca Wallace or Thaddeus Lewis will be getting the boot at some point since they don't need four QBs to start the season. I wish Tom Heckert and company didn't lie to fans about the plan going forward once they failed to get the #2 pick, as they told fans the plan was to get Colt weapons to give him the best shot possible to succeed. They didn't say that they were looking to draft a QB to compete or take the starting position, so making the Brandon Weeden pick went against everything we were told about what to expect for the draft. He needs to start and be productive early in the realm of an Andy Dalton, Matt Ryan, or Joe Flacco and less like Chris Wienke to be worth the pick.

I love the second round pick of Mitchell Schwartz, as he may finally be the answer they've been looking for at RT to give them the most solid offensive line that they've had in years. I'm not a fan of ignoring the WR need until the fourth round, as it basically confirms that Greg Little and Josh Cribbs will be the top two receivers this year unless somebody breaks out. They did a nice job to solidify the defensive line with another DT or two to rotate in when Taylor or Rubin needs a break and I'm hoping either of the LBs they drafted will be the eventual successor to Scott Fujita with some speed to help the defensive line on run defense. They made some good picks, though I'll have to see how everybody plays when that time comes to see if it's a good draft or not.

The NFL announced Wednesday that New Orleans Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma will be suspended for the entire 2012 season for his role in the team's bounty program.

Defensive end Will Smith will miss four games.

Anthony Hargrove, a former Saints defensive end who signed with the Green Bay Packers in March, was given an eight-game suspension.

Cleveland Browns linebacker Scott Fujita was suspended for three games.

http://sports.yahoo....31854--nfl.html

- Scott Fujita (now with the Cleveland Browns) is suspended without pay for the first three games of the 2012 regular season. The record established that Fujita, a linebacker, pledged a significant amount of money to the prohibited pay-for-performance/bounty pool during the 2009 NFL playoffs when he played for the Saints. The pool to which he pledged paid large cash rewards for ''cart-offs'' and ''knockouts,'' plays during which an opposing player was injured.

- Defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove (now with the Green Bay Packers) is suspended without pay for the first eight games of the 2012 regular season. Hargrove actively participated in the program while a member of the Saints. Hargrove submitted a signed declaration to the league that established not only the existence of the program at the Saints, but also that he knew about and participated in it. The evidence showed that Hargrove told at least one player on another team that Vikings quarterback Brett Favre was a target of a large bounty during the NFC championship game in January of 2010. Hargrove also actively obstructed the league's 2010 investigation into the program by being untruthful to investigators.

- Will Smith of the Saints is suspended without pay for the first four games of the 2012 regular season. Smith, a defensive end, assisted Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams in establishing and funding the program during a period in which he was a captain and leader of the defensive unit. Multiple independent sources also confirmed that Smith pledged significant sums to the program pool for ''cart-offs'' and ''knockouts'' of opposing players.

- Linebacker Jonathan Vilma of the Saints is suspended without pay for the 2012 NFL season, effective immediately per league policy for season-long suspensions. The investigation concluded that while a captain of the defensive unit Vilma assisted coach Williams in establishing and funding the program. Multiple independent sources also confirmed that Vilma offered a specific bounty - $10,000 in cash - to any player who knocked Arizona quarterback Kurt Warner out of the 2009 divisional playoff game and later pledged the same amount to anyone who knocked Minnesota quarterback Brett Favre out of the 2009 NFC championship game the following week (played on January 24, 2010). Vilma is eligible to be reinstated after the Super Bowl in 2013.

Fujita, Hargrove, and Smith may participate in all offseason activity, including preseason games, prior to the suspensions taking effect. Each player disciplined today is entitled to appeal the decision within three days. If an appeal is filed, Commissioner Goodell would hold a hearing at which the player may speak on his behalf and be represented by counsel.

Commissioner Goodell concluded, as he did with the Saints' non-player employees, that it was appropriate to focus on those individuals who had a higher degree of responsibility and whose conduct warranted special attention. While a significant number of players participated in the pay-for-performance program, whether by contributing funds to the pool or collecting cash rewards, the players disciplined participated at a different and more significant level, Commissioner Goodell noted.

''In assessing player discipline,'' Commissioner Goodell said, ''I focused on players who were in leadership positions at the Saints; contributed a particularly large sum of money toward the program; specifically contributed to a bounty on an opposing player; demonstrated a clear intent to participate in a program that potentially injured opposing players; sought rewards for doing so; and/or obstructed the 2010 investigation.''

Dammit. ESPN pointed out that a pretty staggering number of players from the Chargers 1994 SB team have already died. Something like 8. Considering that it was *only* eighteen years ago and the oldest guys were probably in their mid to late 30s, that's ridiculous.

Not denying it isn't but the chance of causing a fatal injury through gunshot to ones self seems much lower where he shot himself. There had to be some significance to him killing himself through a chest shot and not a head shot.

Yup. So that was unrelated to football but I can't speak for all the others (or for Seau at this point but concussions do seem to very frequently lead to these kinds of tragedies)

stolen from ESPN

Seau, who played in the NFL for parts of 20 seasons, is the eighth member of San Diego's lone Super Bowl team who has died, all before the age of 45. Lew Bush, Shawn Lee, David Griggs, Rodney Culver, Doug Miller, Curtis Whitley and Chris Mims are the others.

Oh, no, I completely agree with you, I was just commenting on the situation as a whole and the decision he made to kill himself like that.

I'm guessing when he drove his SUV off of a cliff last year that was his first attempt. I'd also bet that getting hit for 20 years definitely leads to some form of depression and/or brain damage.

Head trauma effects the brain so much it changes its look in scans. There is definitely a link.

Everyone thought the crash was a suicide attempt, he denied it.

Someone reported he left a note saying he shot his heart to save his brain for research but that's not confirmed.

In terms of design, it's looking good. Wasn't a fan of the two-tone sleeves so I'm glad that's gone. I like the design, but the elements give off a collegiate feel primarily thanks to Oregon's identity crisis.
