NFL Draft Thoughts

It’s a few days late, but everyone else has their opinions, so here’s mine.

I don’t know a whole lot about college football, so it’s kind of hard for me to evaluate good draft picks, other than mirroring what others say about them. I was hoping the Bears would pick up Mike Williams since their passing game has been brutal for the last few years, but evidently the Bears didn’t value him as highly as I did. Apparently not many teams did as he dropped all the way down to 10. I guess they could use another running back, although I was satisfied with Anthony Thomas Jones combo last year.

I got a funny email from my brother who goes to Purdue in regards the Bears picking up Kyle Orton. He was wondering if the Bears were hoping to learn Purdue’s patented fumble formation. The sad thing is I responded that yes that is probably something that would fit quite nicely in the Bears offence. And I was only half joking.

A friend of mine pointed out that the Bears now have six quarterbacks on their roster. We put the over/under on number of Bears quarterbacks seeing significant (read at least one quarter) playing time next year at 4. I wouldn’t rule out the over either.

At least its still baseball season and I don’t have to worry about football for a few more months. Oh wait, the Cubs have already broken their starting middle infielders, and it looks like one of their top starters. And their closer couldn’t get me out in the ninth inning if I was batting left handed, and blindfolded. But other than that they should do real well this year.

Baseball season will be a lot more pleasant for you if you decide to follow the White Sox. I think I might win our 'first Chicago team to win a series bet...'

Now you're just being silly. I'll admit the Sox are having an incredible season so far, but never underestimate the ability of a Chicago team to choke. It's a long season. I wouldn't be surprised if they miss the playoffs.
