-Signal was horrible. My texts to Matty were arriving sometimes 20-30 minutes after I'd send them. So, so much for being the "embedded warpath reporter" on the ground

-To see players' moms and grandmothers (and other families) get excited was really cool

-I totally called Ponder to the Vikings in one of my mocks

-After the Niners passed on Quinn, the plan to move down was to get Quinn at 16, we didn't expect him to go to the Rams. We also didn't think Ponder would go to the Vikings

-Kerrigan is a solid pick, but man if he effs up he'll have to deal with chants of "Nannnncy...Nannnnncyyyy"

-No, I'm not Scott Van Pelt

-I never predicted Vince Young to the Redskins, I merely reported that we're seriously considering him...I predicted Alex Smith (which may be just as foolish)

-Names I heard most frequently mentioned for tomorrow (in no particular order): Stephen Paea, Stephen Wisniewski, Leonard Hankerson, Ricky Stanzi...which means we're taking Andy Dalton and Rodney Hudson
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! The guy is mentally weak. If he can't hack it in Tenn then there's no was he can cut it here.

Re: 2011 Draft Thread Round 1

SMOOT - On NFLN they showed a shot of one lone Skins fan in the seats, wearing a burgundy Portis jersey.

My life laughed and said "Look, we only have one fan there!"


WAS THAT YOU?






----------------

My thoughts:

Titans taking Locker that early...stupid but I was excited that they saved us from being stupid.

Then, I was nervous we'd take Gabbert, not a fan. THANK YOU JAGS! GREAT TRADE FOR US! 2 second-rounders will be very beneficial.

Kerrigan was a solid pick for us. We should be able to play OLB fine. I watched his highlight vid and checked his sack/forced fumble stats...IMPRESSIVE. I'm excited to see him and 'Rak attacking QBs from both sides. We're going to be a D with a ton of sacks and TOs.



NOW...Get DALTON with one of the picks, preferably #41. Then go for the best available O-Lineman, Hankerson (WR-Miami) or a CB, maybe the kid from Miami.

I thiik we have a great shot at Kris Jenkins in FA to address the middle of our D-line, so use the draft for more pressing needs.

LOL. No, not me. I didn't wear any Redskin gear. I did see some dude in Portis gear, another in a Smoot jersey, another wearing Taylor #36.

On some of the wide shots of the crowd you could see quite a few Skins fans.

SS sitting in the crowd with the common folk? Please.

Re: 2011 Draft Thread Round 1

They were a bit more scattered than most other fans. I think actually other than the Jets and Giants, the strongest contingent there was Lions fans

Not as far as I know, but I don't think he's at the top of their list

Re: 2011 Draft Thread Round 1

SS, kudos to you. When you said that Locker might go in the top ten I thought that you were spending too much time partying with Mallett. You are the master.

Re: 2011 Draft Thread Round 1

I saw one dude with a mainly burgundy long shelve shirt with yellow highlights and Redskins across the front. One of the few times in my life I was like god we have awful colors.

What? We have one of the best color schemes in the league. No black just for the sake of having black...no navy blue (seems like most teams are going with some shade of blue lately, in all sports).

Re: 2011 Draft Thread Round 1

When done wrong though, our colors can be kinda ugly. But I blame that on whoever designs some of these shirts and hats.
