The annual NFL draft is coming up. Most of the players will be busts and there will be many who are drafted lower that outperform the early selections. I am hoping Detroit and Kansas City get their acts together.
The Detroit fans need a real QB who is up to the challenge and a defensive playmaker. The Chiefs need an LB or a WR with firepower.
Locally the Giants and Jets both need help at WR. I see a trade for Braylon Edwards on the horizon
and a draft of LB and offensive linemen. I hope the Giants get 6'6'' WR Ramses Barden in the late rounds. The Jets need to rebuild the entire offense save the line and get help on the DL.
There are some who wonder if we still consider Tiki Barber to be a low life fraud for his antics in NY. Tiki is the epitome of what is wrong with the NFL. He was a big mouthed lowlife who was given countless chances screwed up weekly and blamed others. He is a lousy commentator who should not be confused with Chris Collinsworth, Deirdorf, Strahan or Howie Long. Barber lacked class as a player and is a joke as a commentator. He is neither knowlegeable or likeable and has no class. If I want knowledge I turn to Colinsworth. If we want fun we turn to Bradshaw or Strahan. Most of the others offer a mix of knowledge and fun like Sims, Irv Cross or Tom Jackson. Tiki is not even up to the poor standards of performance of Deon Sanders.
