Players Deserve More

OK, I am an agent but the overall numbers indicate that the system is broken in favor of the teams.

In the NFL, lack of experience is essentially rewarded. Where's the equity in there?

April 24th Winner: mickeyjay1

If Oprah put a football in her hands and said she could throw, Snyder would probably be there with a contract. He is single handedly turning what was a rich and respected football franchise into a low class, alienated and mocked flea circus.

Avoid Mark Sanchez, Redskins

Another young hotshot quarterback is not the answer, but the Redskins just do stupid stuff.

Mariucci and Mayock Pick Sanchez Over Stafford

If you put Sanchez in the right system, one that emphasized creativity and route diversity and pocket movement, he'll do everything required to be a great player in this league.

Sanchez Fits Seattle

Much has been made of Mark Sanchez's rising stock. As perhaps the only media member who viewed his Combine performance live, as well as attended USC's Pro Day, I can understand why.

Two Likely Suitors

with an established QB mentor at the helm and an undeniably talented offensive line and receiving corps, Sanchez at 12 to Denver makes more sense then Matt Leinart at a keg party.

West Coast Ideal

If he can be in a system -- like what's perceived to be the West Coast system -- where the ball gets out quick in a shorter area, he'll do well.

More Data Needed

You'd like to have had another year to verify what you think you see in what he did this last year.

Don't Blame Mel Kiper

If he doesn't pan out in Denver Mel Kiper has taught us who to blame.

Redskins or Seahawks

Playing under Jim Zorn, would be a great way to start Sanchez's career.

I'll Take the Tuna

If Parcells is the top name on my org chart, I have no worries when it comes to personnel.

I Pick Dick Haley

Of all the greats, the person most apt to lead my war room is none other than Richard "Dick" Haley

Picking First Isn't Best

This isn't the best year to have the first pick in the NFL draft.

Great Pay Good Talent

The reality is that teams -- especially this year -- no one wants to pick first.

No Guts No Glory

The kind of front offices that prefer to draft fourth instead of first are run by pragmatists not champions.

Wrong Year for First Pick

Curry is the safest pick in this draft, but who wants to take a top-5 selection, and pay top-5 money, for a linebacker?
