    If only we could get those first rounders to turn out wins. Lots of good QBs this year, and whoever we choose needs to sit behind Taylor for season at least.

    If I were the Browns, I might go for both. They can be had for league minimum at this point, and it would give them the ability to get some stout defensive players and a decent offensive line together pretty quickly by trading out of the first round and getting a slew of picks in the middle rounds.

    I hope my Bears do not trade Jordon Howard! My favorite player. Dabutcher loves Dabears.

    The Bears NEED new management. The McCaskey family has run that team into the ground. They have no idea what they're doing. Look at it this way, the Blackhawks got new ownership when Rocky took over and BAM! 3 championships in 5 years. The Ricketts took over from the Tribune company and got the Cubs their first title in over 100 years. It's time for the McCaskey family to step aside. Time for some new blood.

    Does it really matter? The only pick I remember of theirs flamed out before he even took the field. The Browns have sucked for a decade, and will still suck a decade from now.

    Agreed. Not my team, I just get a kick out of watching the first round of the draft, especially the first few picks. Steelers don't pick till 28th, I probably won't last that long.

    Ummm yeah, about that. They need to produce a win first, and then perhaps 9 or 10 more... and the key part is that they all occur within the same season.

    Good luck with that.

    Yes I understand how it works.

    Baker Mayfield though, I was wanting Darnold.

    He was 15, he managed to get through college

    I've read the tweets, some most were when he was goofing around like playing beer pong...so IMHO a blown out of proportion story. Was it wrong...yup, did he apologize...yup.

    He has been in a team environment for all his life. He wouldn't have been successful if he conducted his daily life that way.

    Training camps are about to launch and the Vikings take yet another gut-punch before their season gets underway. Tony Sparano died today of what appears to have been a massive heart attack, after he checked himself into the hospital for chest pains just last week.

    Doctors dropped the ball here, as how you don't run some major tests on a middle aged fat guy complaining of chest pain is beyond me.

    Bears add Khalil Mack to defense to seal up an awesome off season of additions. Makes sense when their division has three of the best QB’s in the league. He cost a lot of picks but will definitely slow QB’s down. Said to be one of the top ten players in the NFL today. My son and I are more excited for this season than I can remember.
