Andre Johnson & Reggie Wayne - good WR tandem.
My draft is 24 hours away. Can't wait!
Watching the Cards right now.
I really like Breaston & am impressed with the RB from Richmond--Hightower.
Rackers sure is a head case. He missed an extra point. I dread him deciding games again this year.
Here is my squad....
Who will be the starter in AZ?
Warner or Leinart?
decent squad bud...and as far as i know, leinart's the starter.
It is quite the QB controversary over here again.
Leinart was named the starter before training camp, but lately Warner
has been given the opportunity to compete for the job.
Warner looked really good as starter vs. the Chiefs Saturday.
Plus Warner was amazing last 1/3rd of last season.
Consensus all over the paper & airwaves is for Warner....
...we shall see how it unfolds!
I am an SC fan & all about Leinart.
But, I cannot help but feel we will win more games this year with Warner.
And we really need to win now. This is a year we have the talent to do some good things.
And on the financial end, if we have another mediocre season the season ticket renewals will drop drastically, etc, etc,etc.
I had high hopes for Leinart when he was drafted. Too bad he turned out to be an idiot. I hope Warner gets the job.
Tom...you are right, we will see plenty of both.
Hope it is not an enormous distraction.
Another mess on our hands in AZ...
Anquan Boldin's unhappiness is a story that didn't die after he lambasted the organization at the beginning of camp. It just went on a three-week hiatus, returning Monday with slight variations in the story line.
As a fellow member of the media said today, Anquan arrived in Flagstaff angry and he's going to leave angry. Much of what Boldin vented Monday to NFL.com wasn't new. He feels betrayed by the organization and can't see himself re-signing with the Cardinals. He said the same things three weeks ago.
The surprise came when he criciticized coach Ken Whisenhunt. The two have no relationship, said Boldin, who feels like Whisenhunt stepped over the line by involving himself in negotiations.
The whole thing is a sordid mess. It's especially troubling because Boldin once was the golden child of the organization, which did everything to praise him short of commissioning a statue.
Boldin's comments came Monday evening, after Whisenhunt's daily meeting with reporters, so we haven't had a chance to get a response. That will come on Tuesday. So will Boldin's view of the situation.
Earlier in the day, Whisenhunt denied reports that he had no relationship with Boldin and didn't talk to the receiver.
The team, so far, has shown no inclination to trade Boldin, and my hunch is owner Bill Bidwill isn't going to budge off that stance. He can be stubborn and he could determine that letting a player talk his way out of town would set a bad precedent. That's the stance the Bengals took with Chad Johnson, who had little recourse but to report to camp.
yeahhh im a cheesehead
Damn this is frustrating! Q was my favorite, all this bitching about people knowing their roles in the organization, he's a player, PLAY THE GAME!!
What pick did you get Brady with B-field?
I have the 6th pick in my draft, speculation leads me to believe the first five will go:
M Barber (I know)
TO (I know I know)
My question considering this is the order, who would YOU go with? Addai, S-Jax or Brady?
as a huge eagles fan living in san diego...it's refreshing to hear all the love for westbrook. i'm open to hearing opinions on how the eagles will do this season?
3rd or 4th in their division.
But I hate Q's agent, so who knows what is going on.
I got TB with the 5th pick. I am happy with how my draft played out.
If you take Brady, you will still have a shot at a strong RB in round 2, then Fitz in round 3.
Have fun at the ballgame tonight D!
Looks like Matt's awful showing last night sealed the deal....
Source: Cardinals set to name QB Warner as starter

The Arizona Cardinals are expected to name Kurt Warner as the team's starting quarterback, a team source said Sunday.
Matt Leinart's poor performance Saturday night against the Oakland Raiders probably sealed the decision.
Leinart had three interceptions in the first half and completed just 4 of 12 passes for 24 yards. His passer rating was 2.8. The Cardinals won the game 24-0.
The source said Leinart's training-camp performance has been uneven, and the Cardinals are concerned about his arm strength and consistency.
After the game, coach Ken Whisenhunt said Leinart was still in the running for the Cardinals' starting job.
"I know Matt's down because he didn't play as well as he would have liked," Whisenhunt said. "This competition, being pushed by Kurt, has made Matt tougher. It's one of the things you have to be as a quarterback."
ESPN's Chris Mortensen covers the NFL. Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
Addai probably wont be there at 6, unless you are drafting with idiots. If he is there, you should definitely take him. You will probably have a choice between Barber, Portis, or S-Jax, and maybe Brady. I had 6th in my work draft and was pretty stoked that S-Jax was still on the board when it got to me.
In other news, my raiders looked horrible against the fucking cards last night. Couldnt even get on the board. I had high hopes considering how good we looked last week against Tennessee, who I thought would be tougher than AZ. Either AZ has a really good D, or we have a horrible O.
Let's go on a livin' spree!
Let's go on a livin' spree!
lol surprisingly, people were still having solid picks. i think i drafted westy, wayne, a johnson, lj, holt and THEN mcgahee...people were letting those two slip and i couldn't pass them up. oh...and i was picking fourth.

I'm a reasonable man, get off my case.
49ers all the way bitches!
