I always take even money.

I don't always hit on 16 though, that is about the only way I don't play blackjack by the book.

Love the write up, Harry. Really looking forward to the 2nd day draft tonight, some good players are there for sure.

Oh man, I thought ARZ made 2 trades and scored a 3rd & 4th rounder but they traded #23 to BAL and BAL traded down and picked up the 4th rounder from BUF for dropping down 2 spots.

BAL is the best front office in NFL. After thinking about it and hearing analysts take, I think ARZ overpaid. Brown is being touted as a deep threat but he averaged around 11 yards per reception. You can argue LJ is not a great passing QB but Mark Andrews had almost 1400 yards receiving last year.

Two things are required to exploit via deep throws.

1. a wideout with speed.
2. a QB who can throw a catchable deep ball.

The Ravens' had point one and not number two.

The Cards have #2 covered with KM.

Mark Andrew's numbers reflect the relatively short passing game of the 8-9 Ravens, and despite Hollywood not being used optimally he still caught 91 for over a thousand yards.

Imagine 'Smokey' Brown at his best with AZ.

ok I'm feeling better now. I was concentrating on the check book too much.

He's cheaper than Kirk, but you're gonna have to provide some evidence that he's better.
I was going to argue with you and get on you for being so negative, but I recall when I hate the pick or what we do, so even arguing wouldn't be fair. Sorry you don't like what we're doing, K9.

This transaction is good in so many ways. I'm not sure how much is saved against the Cap but not paying an unproven Keim draft choice and given how tight the Cardinals are against the Cap every little bit helps. This is the way L.A. has been successful. I'm all for it.

I just like to live in a reality-based environment. Based on all available evidence, Brown = Kirk. I have yet to hear a convincing argument that he’s an upgrade outside of him being cheaper.

I’m open to being convinced tho.
