DeSean Jackson Burning the Gophers Video

This TD play gave us a good laugh on NFL Draft Day. It was retarded by ESPN to show that as any 5 year-old can burn the Gophers horrible defense

Analysis:
DeSean Jackson runs a simple go route. This is usually easily defended by having the corner run with the receiver and the safety providing help over the top and this is one of the very first play you learn in pop warner youth football. Desi Steib (The worst cornerback to ever soil a Gopher uniform) breaks his ankles and runs around like a decapitated chicken even though Jackson does absolutely nothing. Strong Safety Duran Cooley can't believe how much Steib sucks but his 5.39 40-time is not enough for him to catch up to the play.

Conclusion: This play doesn't show anything about DeSean Jackson, only that the Gophers 2007 Defense is the worst in school history. Oh and Steib sucks so good thing he is graduating

Dom Barber to Houston!


Congrats to Dominique Barber!

Kansas City address their woeful tackle situation as expected

The Jets draft Gholston, one of the most impressive athlete of this year's draft

The Saints draft Rivers, an impressive player who will revamp their defensive front 7

The Bills get their first #1 corner since Nate Clements departure

Albert will fit right into Denver's aging offensive line
13. Carolina Panthers -Derrick Harvey, Florida, DE
The worst kept secret of this draft

The Redskins provide Campbell with a big target

Cowboys have been highly interested in drafting Cason, and I expect them to do so if he is availabe at #22 or even #28. Cason is very UNDERRATED
23. Pittsburgh Steelers - Jeff Otah, Pittsburgh, OT
Steelers add the big and somewhat slow footed Otah to their O-line
24. Tennessee Titans - Jerod Mayo, Tennessee, LB
Mayo is a very good prospect at LB and should start immediately for the Titans behind a very good D-line
25. Seattle Seahawks - Brian Brohm, Louisville, QB
Brohm will be able to learn behind Hasselbeck for a couple years and this is an ideal situation for him
26. Jacksonville Jaguars - Quentin Groves, Auburn, DE
Jaguars address their pass rushing need with the speedy end from Auburn
27. San Diego Chargers - Gosder Cherilius, BC, OT
Cherilius will provide starting competition and depth for the Chargers O-line

Cowboys will draft Jones if they can't get their hands on McFadden. He is used to sharing the workload with a superstar
29. San Francisco 49ers (IND)- DeSean Jackson, California, WR
49ers will be ecstatic to bring in the exciting player from the University of California - Berkeley. He will bring playmaking ability to a team starving for big plays
30. Green Bay Packers - Reggie Smith, Oklahoma, CB/S
The Packers will hit two birds with one stone by drafting Smith who can play both safety and corner. He will be able to play as the nickel corner as well as provide competition next to S Nick Collins.
31. New England Patriots - (forfeit) Cheaters
32. New York Giants - Curtis Lofton, Oklahoma, LB
Lofton will make an instant impact for the Giants, he is a tackling machine.

FREE CHAD


This Offseason Bengals WR Chad Johnson has made it well know to both the fans and the media that he would like to be traded. Chad has practically been appearing on every media outlet in the past couple of months, trying to justify his trade demand.

Chad believes that the Bengals franchise is not serious about winning and he has also said in many reports that he is sick of people trying to put the blame on him. Their are some people within the franchise and in the media that find his in game antics are a distraction while I on the other hand find them humerus and entertaining.

Lets also not forget about the Cincinnati "Behind Bars "Bengals, for those who don't know Cinci has had 10 players arrested in a 14 month span. Recently Bengals WR Chris Henry was arrested earlier his month which was his fifth arrest while being a member of the Bengals. So you tell me is a player who is the face of your franchise performing funny TD celebrations in the end zone that appear on Sports Center more distracting for a team both inside and outside the locker room or is it the 10 guys in handcuffs. If you ask me its got to be embarrassing to be a Bengals fan. I mean how is it that their management is so bad at judging character? Do they hold some secretive yearly prison yard draft?? if so I guess Micheal Vick would be eligible this year.

On Wednesday Chad came out sounding more serious then ever about being traded by saying "I want to be traded before the draft, and if that doesn't happen, I want to be traded as soon as possible," followed by saying "I don't intend on reporting to anything.''

As upfront as Chad has been about being traded, so has his coach Marvin Lewis along with the Bengals organization in stating that they have no comment about Chad other then that they have no intent on trading him. Also if they were to trade Ocho Cinco they would have to take an $8 million salary cap hit for the upcoming season as well as winding up looking anorexic on their WR depth chart.

If Chad were to get his wish and be traded before next weekends NFL Draft, than I think the best teams for him to end up with would be the Titans or the Eagles. Both teams have Pro-Bowl QBs (Young & McNabb), both are still looking for a #1 option at WR, and both are expected to target a WR in the 1st round of the draft. So why gamble on project RC WRs like Devin Thomas and DeSean Jackson? When you can get a sure thing in a Pro Bowler like Ocho Cinco. All it would cost these teams to pick up Chad would be their 1st RD pick plus maybe a late RDer. An acquisition like this would also help to take a lot of pressure off of the teams running game from having to be its main source of offensive production, while helping them become less one dimensional.

Plus the last time the Eagles had a WR of Chad Johnson's talent they went to the Super Bowl!
