Oakland Raiders had a solid draft, can they do it again?


oakland-raiders-jim harbaugh

Yet another rough season for the Oakland Raiders. That’s become all too common for this once proud franchise. It’s been lean lately; like Keira Knightley on ephredra lean. If there was a NFL version of the NBA Draft Lottery; the Raiders would be like the Milwaukee Bucks- seemingly there every year.

They’re back at #4 this April, but this time there’s a bright side. They made the right call in hiring Jack Del Rio. It would have been disastrous is they had hired Pat Shurmur.

The latest Raiders draft class last year provided building blocks. Maybe you have the signal caller of the future now in Derek Carr, Maybe? And then you pair him with a wide-out?

VIDEO: Amy Schumer parodies Friday Night Lights, football rape culture


amy-schumer

Amy Schumer is becoming to the 2010s what Chris Rock was to the 1990s.  Her series, Inside Amy Schumer, brilliantly and hysterically slaughters every sacred cow imaginable. Schumer’s take on both the oppressive annoyance of the drunken bachelorette party and the desperate-for-positive-press-celeb doing the cliche pity prom date were two examples of her comedic genius.

Like Rock, Schumer has ascended from comedian to social critic.

Who goes #3 overall to Jacksonville Jaguars?


jaguars-blake-bortles

It seems to be decided now that the two quarterbacks are going #1 and #2 in the NFL Draft next week. No one really knows for sure, but the consensus seems to be leaning that way. That means the draft actually starts at #3 with the Jacksonville Jaguars. 

After listening to 12 NFL Draft Media conference calls; totaling 17 hours I know that…..true knowledge comes from knowing that you know nothing- as Socrates put it.

TNT’s Allie LaForce claims Milwaukee is west of Chicago


allie laforce

Everyone makes verbal gaffes from time to time, but the one made by TNT Media personality Allie LaForce last night was pretty bad. Usually, it’s not worth devoting an entire post to someone making a simple mistake, but again, this slip-up was truly outstanding.

Like I said, everyone makes mistakes. In a recent NFL mock draft update, I screwed up by having both the Denver Broncos and the San Diego Chargers draft the same guy. In a mock update a few weeks ago, I still had the Seahawks drafting with the pick that now belongs to the Saints.

I got called out for it by emails, on Twitter, in the comments section. As I should. You learn, you laugh, You move on.
