hahahaha I was waiting for someone to say that.


Yeah the funny thing I'll always remember about JLac is that he always broke the latest big news the last. And the news he broke was always the "huh?" reaction news from the fans. Example:

Jlac: The Minnesota Vikings have announced that they have signed CFL Defensive player of the year Solomian Eliminian.


Fans: Huh? Who?

----

Jay glazer: the redskins will be trading 3 first round picks to the st. louis rams for the #2 pick and RG3.

Adam Schefter, Rob Rang, Peter King, John Theismann, RG3, every skins fan: Redskins have traded for robert griffin...

JLac, 2 days later: My sources are saying that the redskins will trade for robert griffin...

I was wrong about picking 6th, but in this instance it doesnt make a difference for us as well still pick before Dal, Phil, and NYG.

Before the supplemental draft, the NFL has its own draft lottery | ProFootballTalk


Thanks for noticing! No affiliation. I just love current events.

Someone posted a link to an interview where 3 questions (not question 3) were asked to Griffen about Gordon.

Griffen's answears were all positive but not overly positive like you might expect from a young rookie who wants to add a former teammate. Griffen is in a tough spot and spoke like a leader should by not alienating anyone yet staying positive. It seems its tough to get a good read out of a good QB regarding their personal feelings on team "operations" type stuff. But im sure behind closed doors the FO is well aware of what Griff thinks about Gordon.

Because we already have developing talent at the position, trying to incubate another preemie before the others have developed is kind of counterproductive. The team would almost be forced to use a roster spot on him right away because you used next year’s draft pick on him. Unless he is a hands down, no questions asked, bona-fide, potential 1st round draft pick, then using a pick on him in the current scenario just doesn't make sense for the Skins. If you take into consideration that if you wait another season to validate whether or not you need a WR, then you can have more guys to possibly choose from rather than marrying yourself to this one guy for the next 2 years only for it not to work out. If however, the consensus is that this guy is the truth then by all means take him. Honestly though, one year of production coupled with being out for a while doesn’t exactly scream “take this guy now”! Perhaps if you could snatch him in the later rounds then he might be worth it, but I would question the sanity of almost anyone who takes him before the 5th and would request an immediate psyche eval of those who suggest he might go as early as the third in the supplemental draft.

This organization seems to love wr's. I would not be shocked if they made a move for him.

re: Updated: Browns Select WR Josh Gordon in 2nd Round

I wouldnt give up anything above a 5th or 6th for him. The guy is NOT a proven talent and he's got too many red flags. Besides that, we are actually pretty stocked at WR. If he made the team, it would likely be at the expense of Robinson, a hard-working guy with atleast as much promise/potential as Gordon. I just cant see any reasonable reason we'd give up our 3rd round pick in 2013 for this guy.

He is the worst culprit of the viral media cycle

Were any of the other supplemental players worth signing in FA?
