Interesting that the kickers are almost always the highest scoring players on the team every year. You don't realize how many FG's and extra points add up over the season ...

Meh. Some cautious picks (Shelton, Erving) early, and some head scratchers (Orchard, Cooper). Why did we need a second DT from a school that has Washington in the name?! What exactly is Orchard? Is he a LB or DE? He's not good at coverage, and lacks power to be a great rush DE.

Sometimes you just have to wonder why you take best player available at any position when you clearly have specific holes to fill.

For those earlier posters, the Browns lost Jordan Cameron to Miami, but signed former Arizona Cardinals TE Rob Housler.

^^^ This comment is exactly what I was thinking. Survivor has never had the primitive edge that Naked and Afraid has. I think the reason is that Survivor is dependent on the drama of having people voted off, and quitting takes away that suspense.

DGB is Josh Gordon 2.0 ... a prodigious talent that is all ego and no brains. He could be an All Star, or a perennial candidate to receive a suspension for violating the leagues substance abuse policy or worse. He's a first round talent with question marks due to his lack of character.

The real question is: Can he be enough of a team player to avoid destroying the chemistry in the locker room?

Remy -

If anything, we (11W readers) all owe YOU a beer for the content you've been so kind to research and provide recently.

I look forward to reading your posts. I'm glad I was able to somehow return the favor, if only a little bit.

Please keep on doing what you're doing!

Columbus St. Francis De Sales' Austin Andrews will see Ohio State's Luke Fickell tomorrow. Andrews is on commitment watch for Michigan State as well, but didn't make the trip to their spring game last weekend and won't visit East Lansing this weekend either because Mark Dantonio will not be on campus. 

I'm pretty sure I saw Dantonio with Trae Waynes in Chicago at the draft.

W-E-B-E-R ... just like the incoming OSU running back.

Built tough, heats up fast, and is worth every penny. The grill is great, also!

(Pro Tip: Splurge for the S.S. grates and flavorizer bars!)

My venerable Weber Genesis Silver B (that my brother now has) is going strong for 15 years now. It was the first item I bought after signing the papers on my first house. We had a grill, but no living room or dining room furniture! LOL. I upgraded to a slightly newer (but used) Weber Genesis Gold ... with a little bit larger cooking area. I love it!

Yes, but we Browns fans would get two squandered draft choices instead of one ...

Comment 29 Apr 2015

Sadly, Trent Dilfer was a Brown in 2005 ...

BVTW - Yes. It can go both ways. However, 90+% of domestic violence is men attacking women.

There is also the issue that same-sex relationships that can become abusive - See Brittany Greiner recently.

Not the best, but one of the better "sandwiches" I've had recently was the "Chubalub" at the River Dog Café in Rocky River, Ohio.

I had a hot dog topped with copious amounts of homemade Mac and Cheese and a whole scrambled egg. I added bacon to it. It was phenomenal!

Here's a pic of the first one I got a year ago (no bacon):

Parris Campbell = sleeper. He is a better returner than Jalin, I think, and will electrify in the return game.

I'll go with Corey Smith as my breakout player. He's going to have a big year replacing Devin Smith. Look for his catching ability to be much improved, and his blocking to continue to be hard-hitting.

Comment 27 Apr 2015

While this sounds good, I'm just not sure Kobe is a "teacher" in any sense. He really doesn't have a track record of being anything but a "Me first" kind of guy. And unless DAR can convince Kobe otherwise, his growth in LA won't be from anything more than film study of Kobe.

To the O.P. -

I think it's safe to say that a World Record holder then (Jesse Owens) would be approximate to the world record holder now (Usain Bolt), if given the opportunity to compete with the benefits of modern equipment and training ...
