And so my American Football season is in fullswing for 2012!

I am looking forward to who my Broncos get today, since we traded out of the first round (32 picks in 1st round)

The fellowship with the guys at BWW lastnight while watching was AWESOME, as we got to eat, drink, and needle each other on our teams and the direction they will go for 2012 (all in fun!)

So, who do you want for your team? Do you like who you chose so far?

Team: Broncos
Pick round 1: none
looking forward to a non-sexy OL for one of our picks today, a DT for our DL-rotation, also hoping for a RB to help with depth behind McGahee

Im a huge Jets fan...
Somewhat happy with the pick last night(Quinton Coples DE from UNC). DE pass rusher was priority #1.
Tonight- hoping to get OL and a WR early.

I think the Bucs have made some of the most impressive moves with free agency and the picks they made for a stud safety and solid running back they get an A in my book. Hopefully they get a cornerback and some more help on the Dline with their other picks. I think they will definately be challinging the Saints and Falcons for the South title and be relevant again this season.

Charlie, you guys must be thrilled with Manning coming to your team!
i used to be a Pittsburgh fan, but too much into the other kind of football! Good luck this season.

My team has the younger Manning. I have no complaints.

So my Broncos FINALLY got into some great action last night! (2 picks round 2, 1 pick round 3)
I am personally THRILLED with the picks, moreso because of their value in the spots we drafted them (DT,QB,RB).
Here is a snippit from a Denver Broncos Beat writer...

Quick hits from Fox on Wolfe, Osweiler, Hillman
By Lindsay Jones

Broncos head coach John Fox met with the local media tonight at the
conclusion of the second and third rounds of the NFL draft, and spoke about
the team’s three picks: defensive tackle Derek Wolfe, quarterback Brock
Osweiler and running back Ronnie Hillman.

Here is Fox’s take on each new player:

On Wolfe, a 6-foot-5, 300 pound defensive tackle from Cincinnati:

“Derek’s a guy that played well at five technique and three technique
defensive tackle, has good length, good speed for that length, got a great
frame to get bigger and was very, very productive in terms of creating
havoc on the quarterback, mostly because he does a good job with his hands
as far as snatching off things. He was the most productive sack guy of all
the tackles in the draft. He’s got a great motor, and on some of the
testing things we do, he was a high-character guy and a guy that will bring
a great attitude to our defense.”

On Osweiler, a 6-foot-7, 21-year-old quarterback from Arizona State:

“When we went to visit, I thought he had an outstanding interview,
outstanding workout and he’s a guy that we think has a bright future. … I
don’t think you can ever have too many quarterbacks. I don’t think its
going to be one of those things where Peyton Manning feels threatened by
any stretch, but he’s a good young guy, he’s got mobility for a guy that
big. Quick twitch, a tall body helps you see some of those lanes you get in
this league. All in all, it was what you were looking for in a prototypical
quarterback in the national football league. … The thing that was most
impressive to us was his accuracy and his mobility for a big guy and just
his production, being a young guy coming out. I’m sure he’ll learn a lot
from Peyton Manning.”

On Hillman, a 5-foot-9, 200-pound (and 20-year-old!!) running back from San
Diego State:

“One of the big things, and no offense to Marshall [Faulk], but he broke
all of his records there at San Diego State, and [Faulk] fared pretty well.
I think he can be an example, that’s the first one that comes to mind.
That’s pretty big shoes to fill. But he’s that dynamic – kind of
Sproles-like, that explosive, and dynamic whether you hand it to him, check
it down to him or even long passes to him. He’s an all-around running back.”


ahhhh is it Training Camp yet?!?

Folks would think that since I live in WI that I would be eat up with the Packers. Well, I'm not. I like them and like to see them do well, but don't loose any sleep when they don't. There are several teams that I like and I was more interested where some of the players went as apposed to who drafted them.

I think Detroit made a good move to draft Broyles out of Oklahoma. I think Cleveland made a good move to draft Weeden out of Oklahoma State. I think Seattle made a good move to draft Wilson out of Wisconsin.

And I disagree with all of the so called experts and the Dolphins. I don't think Tannyhill will make it. Maybe as a back up some day, but not a quality starting QB.
