Wilfork was a nice pick but I think you'd be happier with Brady in the millionth round with the billionth pick. That one worked out.


That's why I had "at the time" in parentheses. :D

Brady is probably the best draft pick ever, but any Patriots fan who tells you that they thought after 2000 that they'd just drafted one of the best QBs of all time in the 6th round is lying.

Even after the 2001 Super Bowl there was a not insignificant number of Pats fans who wanted to give the job back to Bledsoe when he was healthy.

I'm pretty indifferent toward the Patriots as well. Hated them for a good while after the tuck rule crap knocked the Raiders out years back. But otherwise don't mind them.

I despise the Ravens, so will be pulling for the Pats in that one.

Otherside I'm pretty indifferent on. I live in Atlanta, but I'm a Raiders fan--don't mind the Falcons though.. 49ers were my preseason pick to win it all so I wouldn't mind seeing that pan out either--and I like Kaepernick. Was fun to watch in college, glad he's having success in the NFL.

Dumb rule, but definitely called correctly. Interestingly, there was what looked like a possible "tuck rule" play in the 3rd quarter of the Broncos-Ravens game but they kept it a fumble.

Should have never come into play Woodson should have been flagged for the hit to the head he gave Brady

Actually, I don't think Chip Kelly himself technically did. There were always "Sources say..." and then the AD for Oregon or someone confirmed he was coming back, but never Chip Kelly himself. He doesnt talk much to the media, anyway.

Rumor had it he was going to give it one more shot at the BCS title or hold out for a job more on the east coast. (Where he's from)

Well here is another story.....Remember Manti Te'o, ND player, well right before the Heisman race was to begin, It looks like either Manti is extremely gulable or it was an elaborate scheme to get Heisman trophy support. He did do a media blitz and emotional interview.

"Notre Dame's Manti Te'o, the stories said, played this season under a terrible burden. A Mormon linebacker who led his Catholic school's football program back to glory, Te'o was whipsawed between personal tragedies along the way. In the span of six hours in September, as Sports Illustrated told it, Te'o learned first of the death of his grandmother, Annette Santiago, and then of the death of his girlfriend, Lennay Kekua."

Manti Te'o did lose his grandmother this past fall. Annette Santiago died on Sept. 11, 2012, at the age of 72, according to Social Security Administration records in Nexis. But there is no SSA record there of the death of Lennay Marie Kekua, that day or any other. Her passing, recounted so many times in the national media, produces no obituary or funeral announcement in Nexis, and no mention in the Stanford student newspaper.
Nor is there any report of a severe auto accident involving a Lennay Kekua. Background checks turn up nothing. The Stanford registrar's office has no record that a Lennay Kekua ever enrolled. There is no record of her birth in the news. Outside of a few Twitter and Instagram accounts, there's no online evidence that Lennay Kekua ever existed.
The photographs identified as Kekua—in online tributes and on TV news reports—are pictures from the social-media accounts of a 22-year-old California woman who is not named Lennay Kekua. She is not a Stanford graduate; she has not been in a severe car accident; and she does not have leukemia. And she has never met Manti Te'o.

Girlfriend never exist, story was a hoax and elaborate scheme, Manti is saying he was tricked and he was having a online relationship.

Its breaking news on ESPN

My main thought when SportsCenter broke the story "Manti Te'o and his girlfriend...that did not exist, well be back with the story" My mind was blown, His excuse is it was an online relationship, and he was embarrased, but he mentioned in several interviews leading up to Heisman trophy, he spoke of him and his girlfriend physically hanging out togother, but now he is saying he is a victim of a hoax....but yet he was the only one who benefited from this elaborate hoax.

Kid needs to work on better lies, especially in this day and age. Dead anything is very bad as it's super easy to track that down.

Obviously the best choice is to not do that stupid shit, but if you are, do a better job.

I for one am glad they are making this story front and center to let America know the same guy who everyone felt sorry for, was just a scheme for publicity to his benefit. It makes me sick that he used "Leukemia" to get votes, Leukemia is such a tragic disease that takes thousands of young helpless childrens lives each year.

If this is all true, and he was behind this hoax the whole time, I really hope the NFL teams take this into consideration during the draft, because it truly shows his twisted character.

To quote one NFL scout "This won't effect his draft stock at all, we draft guys who have robbed banks."

I don't believe the whole story that he was hoaxed. Nothing adds up.

That scout is an idiot. Of course it will impact his draft stock. Dez Bryant lied about going out to dinner with Deion Sanders and it caused him to drop to 22.

His stock will take a hit but nothing too crazy. Looking forward to Mel going "This is a steal at pick xx. Some pros of Teo are his tackling ability. A con of this pick is that he likes to pretend he has a girlfriend"

LOL. I'll admit I haven't read any of the news stories relating to this but I am surprised that this wasn't discovered earlier....

I mean his relative (mom or grandmother?) actually did pass away in September (?) and IIRC his fake girlfriend died shortly thereafter.

How it wasn't discovered that he was lying then I have no idea....

He would look better if he claimed to be the mastermind behind the hoax in order to raise his profile for the Heisman. That's a terrible thing to do but perfectly understandable. The alternative... is just embarrassing.

In the old draft system he would have lost a ton of money. But in the new system he will lose less. He was already slotted mid-first round after his horrible end of the season, so it will likely drop him to Round 2.

Then again, players' stock tends to skyrocket up and down at the Combine, so it is way too early right now.

Worst case scenario: He ends up as this year's Burfict.
