How did other teams do?
 
So not including our Skins, how do you think other teams did?

I'll be honest - I was going to start a thread on Cam Newton, based on this tweet:

RT @daringantt Awesome. Clausen was first guy in the building this morning. Newton's presser begins with him saying he'd like jersey No. 2.

Think the Panthers may really have blown it, Cam's first comment was, he's going on vacation, and his second (that I've heard) was a direct slam of another teammate. Not a good start...

But the whole first round may be worth some discussion, and later rounds too...

I would say the Browns got the best trade obviously, and Atlanta made the dumbest one.

Ponder by far was the biggest reach.

Other than Carolina the other top 4 made good picks.

And a good laugh at the end with Chicago and Baltimore's little escapade.

That was a fun evening of tv and Warpath!

I think Detroit owned the first round. Fairley and Suh? Are you kidding me? We couldn't block Suh, imagine having to deal with both of them? Amazing. Congrats to the Lions, they deserve something good. Now it's our turn.

They should go for some DB help in the 2nd round. But yeah I think Detroit will be ready to compete with Chicago and the Pack, as long as Stafford is healthy.

Falcons messed up big. I'm sorry but a second receiver might help you out during the regular season but during the postseason it's not going to overcome a defense that has been exposed.

With what they gave up, Jones would have to get on the Larry Fitzgerald level to be worth what was traded for him. And it's sad to. By no means is he a bad player, he has a great work ethic, he's tough, played through injury (ran a 4.39 with a foot that need surgery), also had the production worthy of a top 10 draft pick. He's like an offensive lineman playing receiver.

I feel bad for him. Unless he's posting 1,300 yard seasons he will have fallen short of expectations.

Seems like they don't need to commit many resources to Haynesworth. haha

And Fairley isn't a guy I would have necessarily liked everywhere in the long run, but for God's sake we're talking about a head coach that made Albert Haynesworth a $100 million man. Fairely's talent is most certainly comparable to Haynesworth going all out.

Of all the places he could have landed, their system (with White established as the no. 1) is one of the few places where he will avoid appearing as a bust.

They gave up WAY, WAY too much for the production they will get. It wasn't at all a good move. But if any other team had made the same move, there would be a clock counting down to the firing of their front office. With Dimitroff, it's an aggressive move that probably hurts the team, but actually makes some sense for them.

I'm sure Brett Favre is glad he chose retirement. ;)

Jay Cutler and Aaron Rodgers, on the other hand....pray to the Lord for mercy.

If those two play nice together it could be a long game for opposing qbs, but I can see a situation where they end up feeding the negatives and causing an implosion. In this case I think the chemistry will outweigh the individual talents, I just am not sure if it will be a positive or a negative. (an example is in a negative competitive mode they could become a personal foul tandem of epic scale, I don't think Suh needs much prodding to put him over that AH - head stomping line)

Sometimes I wonder what the hell NFL front office people are thinking. Cam Newton has so many holes as a QB. He must've went in the Carolina complex and sold them. This pick is going to set them back for the next several years.

Unfortunately if I am a fan of any one of our three division rivals, I like the move that my team made.

Nah, just because AH and Suh have the same coach doesn't mean they necessarily have the same personality.

Also how about Tenn and Minn reaching??? It just goes to show how desperate teams are for good QB play.

Re: How did other teams do?
 
I just dont understand the praise being heaped on the Eagles and Giants this morning. The Giants went BPA and ended up taking a non-impact player at a premium position that wasn't a need. Amukamara is a no. 2 corner on that team who should start for them between 2012 and 2019. Hardly a cause for a party.

And the Eagles picked a 26 year old interior lineman. Probably the worst pick of the round and out of character for the Eagles.

I agee. Real nice job by Det. Martin Mayhew seems to know what he's doing. If Fairley can keep his momentum going then this is going to be a great pick.
