NFL Jabber 12/16/07


http://www.tino-offseason.com/forum/myth/finsgif.gif Miamiherald.com is looking at free agency and the draft for the Fins today. Nice break from the grumpy old men that can’t wait to uncork the bottle when the Pats lose.

The Dolphins can clinch the #1 pick today with a loss. Think they can do it?

http://www.tino-offseason.com/forum/myth/cardsgif.gif Is Edge James Hall of Fame worthy? A little premature of a question but they are asking it in the papers in AZ. His career has been a little quiet since moving to the dessert but he is 13th on the rushing list. They debate it here

http://www.tino-offseason.com/forum/myth/titansgif.gif Mike Maylock of the NFL Network said he wouldn’t draft Vince Young coming out of college because you would have to change your offense to fit him. Jeff Fisher and Norm Chow have been doing a decent job with compromise in their marriage to Young.

“I don’t know if there is another coach who would be able to bring him along like they have to this point, to be able to put their egos at the door, adjust to his strengths and not ask him to do more than he is able to do,” said ESPN’s Merril Hoge, who has been one of Young’s harshest critics. “I can’t think of a place where Vince would be better off. It just takes time.”

Speaking of Norm Chow…he met with the UCLA Bruins about taking the Head Coaching gig in KC last night.

With Matt Hasselbeck still on the mend, Seneca Wallace and David Green will get the reps in minicamp.

The Titans first rounder, Michael Griffen, will be moving from Safety to CB.

After what some think the best draft in the league, the Browns stay at work with rookie free agents. They are bringing in nine of them.

The Cards could top that as they look to bring in 20.

The Bengals will have 14 at minicamp.

Greg Ellis isn’t a fan of the 1st round pick of the Cowboys.

“This was not some generic thing — the guy came to my house,” the Cowboys linebacker said. “It’s the next step. Everybody’s assuming I’m gone.”

As hard as the Chiefs try to replace him, Eddie Kennison just won’t go away.

Cam Inman of the Contra Costa Times has some sour grapes about Randy Moss. He thinks it won’t be such a steal for the Pats come playoff time…at elast they will have to worry about playoff time, right?

Yes folks, Curtis Martin is still in the league

Roy Williams and Mike Furrey went to bat telling the Lions they wanted Calvin Johnson.

The Packers are one of the teams looking into Keyshawn Johnson.

ESPN has a big ass ad on it’s NFL page trying to get you to pay for their NFL draft info at the “impulse buy” section of the checkout counter.

Jason La Canfora of The Washington Post reports that talks have resumed with the Bears and Redskins over LB Lance Briggs. Doesn’t 50% translate to might or might not?

“While a deal was not a certainty, one source with knowledge of the situation said there was a “50-50″ chance a trade would be completed before Washington makes its first selection in the NFL draft tomorrow. The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said it was possible the teams also would swap their first-round draft picks, with the Bears receiving Washington’s sixth overall selection in return for Chicago’s 31st pick.”

Some mock drafts that we have seen have the Bengals taking Miami TE, Greg Olsen in the first round. How often do the Bengals use a TE? Marvin Lewis weighs in with a “might or might not” of his own leaving it as a 50% chance?

The Titans have many needs to fill this season. Given the current situation they can kill two birds with one stone by taking Ted Ginn Jr. if he is there for them. The fashion of the year is to have a stud returner. Ginn could provide them with that and help at WR where they lost players to free agency.

A year after the biggest day in his life, Reggie Bush returns to New York with the less stressful job of peddling Schutt Sports gear.

“It’s definitely a year later,” Bush said at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square, where he met with a handful of area high school football players and coaches to introduce a new line of gear for Schutt Sports. “(I’m) able to come to New York and in a sense enjoy this trip without the stress of all that outside stuff.”

The Chiefs are saying the trade rumors about Larry Johnson are untrue (but when Larry goes in the other room we can talk…).

Vince Young can’t do it alone although he makes it appear that way at times. This is the perfect time to start building around this franchise QB the Titans drafted last year.

“Superman can only climb so many buildings. He can’t do it all,” said Gil Brandt, former vice president of player personnel for the Dallas Cowboys. “Vince is certainly a great player. And if you are Vince, what do you do for an encore? Knowing Vince, I’m sure he wants to make last year look miniscule.

“But he’s going to need some help. They’ve lost some key players in Tennessee, and they need to get some guys in place to make some plays for him. You can’t count on him for everything.”

Although it may appear that it is time for the Eagles to begin looking at bringing in another young QB, they are not in a very good spot for it. With the 26th pick they may be reaching if they took one of the second tier QB’s on Saturday.

The Saints draft is still in the hands of the Colts as they wait to see if Indy matches the offer sheet given to CB Jason David.

ESPN has an interesting article on the Best Drafts Ever.

Don Banks is trying to remind everyone (article titled ” Damaged Goods”) that Adrian Peterson broke his collar bone. Disguised as information (which everyone already knows) is likely being put out there so if he gets hurt in the NFL Banks has the “I told you so” card.
