As of yesterday, the Money's have now welcomed a new addition to the family in the form of a 37 pound beagle named "Alex". He is 9 months old and shockingly housebroken already (eventhough She$ is not). Here he is on the left and I'm sure I will post more annoying pictures of him on Facebook. It's what dog owners do, I suppose. Anyway, you may call him A-Bomb if you would like. I plan on injecting him with as many steroids as possible but I will try and keep him away from Canadian HGH smugglers.
We were going to get a little dog from these people but I put my foot down. I can't own a ten pound dog. I just can't. That's a meal to me, not a pet. So we went to the Franklin County animal shelter and picked out a rescue dog. This makes me feel good. Saving a life is a nice feeling. It makes me realize that despite all of my shitty behavior and daily hate-mongering here, I am a good person. This proves it. I am OK. Although I made a dogfighting joke at the shelter that She$ told me I was retarded for doing. So I guess I'm not that great after all. But enough back-patting, let's get some final thoughts on the draft...
*I am one of the few people who actually liked the former "Day 2" of the Draft. Chris Berman was not involved so how can't it be great? I missed every fucking pick of rounds 4-7 though as I was umpiring. The games were 27-1 and 18-0 and lasted a combined 6 hours. I love umpiring because it's one of the only places that I garner any sort of respect, but those games made me want to quit. It was awful. City league (AKA mostly black) schools are just fucking terrible and should never be allowed to play doubleheaders.
*I thought, just from seeing the classes, that the Seahawks had the best draft with the 49ers, Ravens, Eagles, and (gasp) Raiders doing well, too. Look, I know that most of you think that Jason Campbell is terrible, but I don't. And I think he's in a pretty good situation in Oakland. He has a nice running game, fast receivers, and he is following in JaMarcus Russell's shoes. Yes, I just admitted that the Raiders were better than the ZornSkins. J-Camp is going to be fine and I wish him well. He will start over Polack Bruce. Mt. Cody and the Ravens just make so much sense. With Cody, Ngata, and fistfuls of HGH, Ray Lewis might play forever. Seattle, after day 1, added Golden Tate, Leon Washington, AND LenDale White? That is outstanding.
*After that shitty first round, Mike Holmgren did alright. Look, I don't know if Colt McCoy can play in the NFL. But as the 85th pick, it's worth a shot to find out. I always wonder about a guy who has never played in the cold now playing 4-5 games per year in 40 degrees or worse. Hardesty was a nice pick, too. That brotha from Oregon apparently hits like a brick shithouse. Like I said, not a bad class but I still hated that first round pick that was unnecessary.
*Anyone else find it amusing how everyone thought that Toby Gerhart and Jordan Shipley were sleeper picks? They went two rounds too high only because they are white. That makes me laugh. I would rather have LeGarrette Blount than Gerhart just because the ceiling his higher, but Blount didn't get drafted because he likes to punch whities. Shipley can't run and is great if you are looking for a slower Joe Jurevicius which I assume you are not.
*Jimmy Clausen goes to Carolina. This is a pretty good fit for him. When the only one ahead of you on the depth chart is Matt Moore, you are going to play sooner than later. And the mix that the Panthers have is nice. A monster running game with a stud WR and a bulldozing O-Line? Remember, this team may have been a Super Bowl team if they weren't lead by the Browns starting QB for the next two seasons. He will be starting for Carolina by week 8...book it.
*Speaking of which, this QB class wasn't great and the teams agreed. Other than Bradford and Tebow, every single one of them slipped. I don't think that Dan LeFevour will be able to play in the league, but I thought that he would go before two fucking punters. Since Jay Cutler blows though, maybe he will see the field soon. Next year could be a solid class with Mallet, Locker, and (ugh) Terrelle Pryor.
*I should probably talk about the Skins before I go. Yes, I was wearing my Offseason Champs t-shirt on Friday night eventhough they did nothing. Shanny was fortunate to get a 4th rounder for Campbell since everyone knew that we were getting rid of him. They had three big needs to address: OL, OLB, and FS. They drafted three offensive lineman and some dude from LSU at OLB which has been deemed a solid pick and a potential starter right away. They signed Anderson Russell out of anOSU after the draft and he could play right away if he wants to. What do you guys think? Can Russell play in the NFL? But really, the Redskins should get at least a B+ for their draft because you have to include Don Burgundy as our second round pick. I'll say that they did alright and I will absolutely jerk off on Grumpy's face if we sign Alan Faneca who was cut for no good reason at all by the Jets.
What did you guys think of the draft? Are everyone's hopes up? Mine are. I yelled Super Bowl after our first round AND fourth round picks! I had never done that before. The Steelers should probably taper theirs though since their locker room is a mess and they drafted two Buckeyes. That's not good for business.
