NFL Hypocrisy

The hypocrisy in the NFL has hit an all time high. All we the fans have heard about for the past 2 plus years was PLAYER SAFETY. Commissioner Roger Goodell has been fining people at an alarming rate and suspending players for where people have been getting hit. Defenders literally have a smaller hit zone than MLB players have a strike zone.

So what does good ol’ Goodell want to do to remedy the situation?

Adding two more regular season games.

Expand the number of playoff teams (Water down the playoffs)

Now he wants to add more Thursday night games.

All 3 of these things will only hurt the game and the product of the game.

It’s a ludicrous thought to think by doing these things player’s will not be hurt more. Come playoff time do you really want to see your team playing a good majority of 2nd stringers and guys off the streets?

Injuries are inevitable in this game but doing these proposed things will CERTAINLY mean more injuries and high profiled players being on Injured Reserve.

If you’re an NFL fan you can’t like what Goodell is looking to do to the game.

And You Thought The 2012 QB Draft Class Was Great

While I’ll admit there isn’t an Andrew Luck in the 2014 QB draft class. This class has every opportunity to be every bit as good if not better than that terrific class in 2012.

I believe Brett Hundley is the top of the class. While most pundits and writers are putting Teddy Bridgewater at the top of the draft I like Hundley’s game better and his physical build better, While both are listed at 6’3” Hundley weighs 225 and Bridgewater a much lighter 195. I see Hundley as the almost perfect build. Lighter and faster than a Daunte Culpepper and heavier than Michael Vick with good running ability. I’d say Hundley is a better version of Cam Newton and I think Bridgewater is going to have a hard time staying healthy in the NFL at his size.  Then you have to look at the competition each guy has faced and Hundley has clearly played the better competition. Plus Bridgewater has had some injuries, wrist/ankle. Hundley has been durable. In addition to Bridgewater and Hundley the other QB’s in this class include Marcus Mariota, Tajh Boyd, and some kid name Johnny Manziel. With second tier guys like A.J, McCarron, Aaron Murray, Stephen Morris, Derek Carr, and David Fales.

Obviously this is assuming Manziel and Hundley come out this year. So while Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, Ryan Tannehill, and Russell Wilson was/is a special QB class the 2014 has the potential to be even better.
