On your home page.

Made for a great read, the last paragraph pretty much summed it up.

Warner doesn't need win to join Namath in Canton



..."The last decade of NFL football has been dominated by quarterbacks Tom Brady, Warner and Roethlisberger who entered the league with something to prove.
Brady was the 199th pick in the draft.
Roethlisberger played at a midmajor.
Warner bagged groceries and played in the Arena League.

They weren't supposed to be NFL stars.

Brady, Warner and Roethlisberger remind me of Elway, Montana and Kelly, the trio of winning QBs who defined the 1980s and 1990s.
Does Kurt Warner belong in the Hall of Fame? You can't properly explain the last decade without him."

Let' see, there are 3 first round guys to 3 "oh let's throw this QB behind center and see what he does" guys.

Looks like a 50/50 chance of getting a great QB in the first round.

That stat has been thrown around to be true over and over again yet the brains of this place think those are great odds to take whatever QB is left at #3 and I, in the minority, don't think that's necessarily so.

The interesting thing is the combine and the work outs haven't even started yet and usually there are some changes in belief as to who the elite players are after the combine and work outs are over. Usually some stocks rise and some fall. I am interested to see who those players are this year.

No matter how you look at it, this is a weak draft class at the top. Not a lot of hype. Had Bradford and McCoy came out it would be a nonstop line of comparisons.

Last year had Long,Long,Ryan, Dorsey and Gholston who were all hyped big time.
