Sunday Morning Mail Sack

I've been getting some great emails from readers about the new site and just some excellent questions and comments. So every Sunday morning I am going to reach in the Mail Sack and answer a few.

Why didn’t the Chiefs draft a quarterback in the first round?

Curt Popejoy's 1 Round Mock Draft - 3/15/2011

1.1 Carolina Panthers Blaine Gabbert QB Missouri
Unless the Panthers think that Jimmy Clausen is the long term answer, they must pull the trigger on a QB here. I like Gabbert's football IQ over Newton's dynamic athletic ability, and as the financial risk isn't so great, thanks to the incoming Rookie Hard Cap you take the QB when you can get him.

Andrew Luck returns to Stanford - The Implications

I don't think anyone could have expected that Super Sophomore QB Andrew Luck would return to school for his Junior season but that is just the announcement that Luck made.  I think we were all even more shocked when in the wake of that decision former Stanford head coach and new San Francisco 49er head coach Jim Harbaugh decided to leave.  But since that announcement Luck has re-affirmed he is still going to return to school even minus his head coach.

So, I started thinking about just what this could mean for Luck and the 2011 NFL draft.  And why make this decision?

Looking back at the week in the NFL

I know I said at the start of the season I was done with the NFL, and for the most part I am.  I am giving no financial support to a bunch of spoiled rich guys.  I watch the games on my cable that are going to be there regardless but beyond that, the NFL gets nothing from me in terms of revenue.  But I like to think I have a pretty informed opinion of the issues floating around the league so I figure a little rant isn’t such a bad thing.

My top gripe this week is all the talk about the big hits and how it somehow correlates to an argument against a longer regular season.  For me, these are two separate issues and here’s why.

Preseason NFL Power Poll - The Good, The Bad and The Bills

Every year about this time, fans of 32 NFL Football teams look ahead to the season with either hope for a push into the playoffs or pray that the franchise they love doesn’t embarrass them yet again. Fortunately with the way the NFL runs its business many more teams look ahead with hope than despair.  There have been some serious moves this offseason with more to come and so looking at who’s the top and who’s the bottom is a little more complicated than last year’s finish.  And I have made sure to put on my fireproof underwear for the flames I am going to get for how this is all shaking out. But if you're into NFL betting there might be a few good tips in here.

32. Buffalo Bills

My entirely too early 2011 NFL mock draft

The draft order for this mock is based on a highly scientific formula.  I simulated an entire season of Madden 2010 on the Xbox 360 and this was the order it gave me.

1 Jacksonville Jaguars Jake Locker
QB Washington
2 Buffalo Bills Ryan Mallett
QB Arkansas
3 Cleveland Browns Michael Floyd

The Random insanity of the first round...

As I am on the eliptical this morning, I am thinking about what I had seen the night before as the NFL showcased the first round of the NFL draft in prime time.  The NFL draft is like the Super Bowl for me, and so I am always excited for it to come.  And when it's over, I am always scratching my head.  Here are a few observations that I made now that I have had 4 hours sleep.

The Rams make the tough call and were right.  I've said since December a QB had to be the pick, and it was.  Whether or not Bradford will be a franchise QB is a different discussion but the fact the FO wanted to make a bold move must be applauded.

2010 Free Agency - March Madness?

"It's the most wonderful time of the year." Just the words conjure up thoughts of opening gifts on Christmas day, and as I heard one ESPN analyst put it, Free Agency is just as much fun as Christmas day if you are an NFL fan. Only two days in, and several teams have made some big moves, some are looking, and some are being smart and re-signing their own. LT is no longer a charger, something that will take the entire NFL world years of getting used to. Most of us can't imagine Tomlinson running in anything other than powder blue and a tinted visor. Strange days indeed.

Why Ndamukong Suh has to participate at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Before I get too far into this, let me explain my stance on the NFL Scouting Combine. For me personally I only use it to gauge players I haven't gotten to see play. Nothing gets me more than draft sites that list players and rank them knowing full well they've never seen many of them play. I get emails after the draft every season asking me why I didn't have this player or that player ranked and they were drafted. Because I am honest. I don't feel right ranking players I haven't scouted myself. If you are going to base your rankings on other people's work, at least give them credit you hacks.
