So I wonder if the NFL plans to:

A) Go with an odd 17-game schedule all the way through 2030 when the CBA expires,

B) Get the players to agree to an amendment to extend the season another week, or

C) Wedge in the 18th regular season game by cutting the preseason down to 2 games.

Anyone up for a song & dance?

“Our team has been roundly criticized because these numerous brave women haven’t filed formal criminal complaints with HPD (although we have provided info to other organizations.) Here is my worry: When I ran for Houston mayor against the CURRENT mayor, I called for the resignation of the former police chief. I was thus reluctant initially in these important cases to provide info to HPD, at least while Art Acevedo was the Police Chief — even though my brother in law is a long-term HPD officer. Mr. Acevedo has now left Houston for Miami. Yet, I’ve since learned that my legal opponent, Mr. Hardin, has a son who is on [sic] of the exclusive Command Staff of HPD. I am not saying in any way that Deshaun Watson’s lawyer, Mr. Hardin, has a son who has a position that would compromise HPD and its investigation. I support his service, along with all Houston police officers — I think the rank and file know that. But, I am saying that me and my clients will go elsewhere to provide our evidence to investigative authorities. Stand by.”

Steve DeBerg, what a gamer. In BA times (before Andy), I would put Steve at number 3 in my Chiefs QB hierarchy, following only Lennie and Trent. Yes, I would put him ahead of Montana. He really gave me hope because after being replaced by Montana in SF, and Elway in Denver, he said the guy who took over after him would be an elite QB, that was his fate. He missed on that one though, how could he know that Carl Peterson was allergic to developing young QBs?

So, what would you guys think of this mock draft I did (using The Draft Network simulator)? Other than snagging a LB which I was hoping to do, I think I picked up some really really good players. In fact, my last 3 picks might turn out to be better players than my 3rd pick.

31.Jalen Mayfield, OT, Michigan
63. Brevin Jordan, TE, Miami
94. Ronnie Perkins, EDGE, Oklahoma
136. Anthony Schwartz, WR, Auburn
144. Rodarius Williams, CB, Oklahoma State
175. Tyree Gillespie, S, Missouri
181. Jaret Patterson, RB, Buffalo
207. Jimmy Morrissey, IOL, Pittsburgh

I don’t like the back half very much, but without knowing who was available it is hard to judge. This is my last one.

31. Liam Eichenberg OT

63. Jabril Cox LB

94. Hunter Long TE

136. Dayo Odeyingbo EDGE

144. James Wiggins S

175. Josh Imatorbhebhe WR

181. Jaelon Darden WR (Also punt returner)

207. Rachad Wildgoose Jr. CB

Fair enough take on mine. I like Gillespie and Patterson – those guys I think are going to be diamonds in the rough and late round steals for whoever gets them. I’d just like them on our side. But yeah, we did need a LB early.

For yours – I love the first 2 picks. Don’t know much about the middle guys. Heard good things of the 2 wideouts, and no clue on Wildgoose other than he’s expected to go in the late rounds if at all.

I like it up to 144. That said, I don’t see any way Perkins makes it past the second round.

I think it needs more WR. But I do really like Jordan, and the positions you addressed in the top half.

As far as LB goes, my newest irrational hope is we can get Dylan Moses around the late 3rd-4th. I think he’d resurrect our defunct WLB position.
