It all comes down to this roll. Roy Munson, a man-child, with a dream to topple bowling giant Ernie McCracken. If he strikes, he's the 1979 Odor-Eaters Champion. He's got one foot in the frying pan and one in the pressure cooker. Believe me, as a bowler, I know that right about now, your bladder feels like an overstuffed vacuum cleaner bag and your butt is kinda like an about-to-explode bratwurst.

Funny movie. I may have to go watch it again now.

Sometimes I feel like it, but I do have a wife and kids, and no egomaniacal corporate dogs.

There is so much win in the ideas presented so far ...

Regarding the idea of Relegation/Promotion ...

How would you handle the draft? College players would be in the system only 2-4 years (very few at 5 years). You would never have the opportunity to see players on lesser teams play against elite competition. It would make player evaluation much more difficult. It would also make the rich, richer (and the poor, poorer), by ensuring that only the best players choose programs in the top 24/32 team tier. Why would a 5* ever play anywhere but the top tier? There's also no incentive for player development in this system if you're not in the top tier because of the need for immediate positive results every year w.r.t. wins/losses.

It's a fun idea, but it would need to be set up with a true minor league system like baseball or Euro. soccer. Unpaid/non-contract college athletes would not fit into a system like this.

Take Noah Spence at 32. Browns could really use someone to disrupt opposing offenses and take the pressure off their weakened secondary.

I would also consider taking another CB like Mackenzie Alexander or a RT like Jason Spriggs.

I'd like to see them get S Jeremy Cash in the late 2nd or 3rd round.

I don't think Kyle is hating on the Falcons, as much as he's being a little realistic. BG has a history of quick regression after having a really good year.

Additionally, BG has to replace their starting QB, top 2 WR's and top RB, and they have a new HC/coaching staff. They will also transition to a 4-2-5 defense this year.
