It’s Been Awhile Pt. 3

I’ve been on and off of here for the last two months and I am going to be more active since college basketball will be in full force very soon. A lot more stuff to annoy and praise with the upcoming NBA, College Football BCS debacle, NFL season wind-down, and NHL. I can’t wait until Mel Kiper and Todd McShay invade ESPN every five minutes, they need their own show.

I know what you’re thinking, the last two times that I had a post called “It’s Been Awhile” you used it as an excuse to post a picture of a girl that you have a celebri-crush on…I will explain.

– “Tim Lincecum shirtless” google term has been directing tons of traffic to my blog, so I figured that I needed to actually have a picture of Tim Lincecum, well, shirtless. People must have a need for shirtless photos of Ryan Braun, Evan Longoria, B.J. Upton, Brady Quinn, Grady Sizemore, Gabe Kapler, and even C.C. Sabathia to get directed to my blog with the term “shirtless” after their name. I need to boost traffic and with football and basketball season going, here are players that I’m sure will make my blog better. Reggie Bush, Allen Iverson, Colt McCoy, Sam Bradford, Chris Paul, Lebron James, Jay Cutler (really?), Tom Brady, Terrell Owens, Tony Romo, Matt Leinart, Vince Young, Brett Favre, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Garnett, Ladianian Tomlinson, Michael Beasley, Matt Ryan, and for good measure, Grady Jackson.

– My fantasy football teams are all over .500 and I am leading 2 of the 4 leagues I am in.

– Spicy Chicken Nuggets at Wendy’s are not as good as the regular chicken nuggets.

– Sonic Drive-Thru is my new vice. I love that I can get jalapenos on basically anything I want.

– The Mobsters game on Myspace is very addictive.

– Sam Bradford will be a better NFL quarterback than Colt McCoy and Graham Harrell.

– Logan’s Roadhouse is currently paying my bills.

– Greg Oden plays like Dikembe Mutombo without the finger wave.

– The Indiana Pacers might actually be a .500 team. Danny Granger looks like the real deal.

– Brett Favre has probably cost the Jets at least two wins, they would be 9-1 if Chad Pennington was the QB.

– Girls are getting very risky with their facebook photos.

– I think 90% of my friends dressed up as sluts at Halloween and brag about it.

– Texas Tech’s offense looks like every other Texas Tech offense the past ten years. I’m sure Kliff Klingsbury is pissed that the Red Raiders never had a defense when he played.

– Accountemps piss me off.

– The new Emery EP is very good.

– Showtime have two great series on their channel. “Dexter” and “Californication” are must-see television shows.

– Real Chance At Love is better than Rock of Love Charm School, but that is just one man’s opinion.

– Fantasy Focus Football podcast isn’t as good as the baseball podcast, but still amazing.

– Oklahoma Sooners basketball team will be very, very good this season.

– You will see a lot of Stephen Curry this season, I’m pretty sure every non-conference game of Davidson is televised nationally.

– Andre Dawson deserves to be in the Hall of Fame.

– Chauncey Billups will flourish on the Denver Nuggets and Allen Iverson will have trouble in Detroit.

– Fantasy Hockey is very hard to play, especially when you barely watch the sport.

– On the other hand, Fantasy Basketball is extremely easy when you have Chris Paul and Danny Granger on your team.

– I still like to stare at Katy Perry.

– I don’t understand the buzz about “Twilight,” I think “Role Models” would be a better movie to watch.

The White Boy Mock NFL Draft – 2008 Edition

I am going to do my best Mel Kiper impersonation, but I will not replicate the hairstyle, that thing is pretty brutal. I’m more of a fan of Todd McShay than Kiper Jr. anyways. McShay has been going toe-to-toe with him for a couple months now. If Matt Ryan goes #3 to Atlanta, look for McShay to punch Kiper Jr. straight in the mug.

Before I start, I will like to state the two moments when Mel Kiper Jr. was extremely wrong. He never talks about them, ‘cause he would lose nearly all credibility. They both involve the Colts picks. The Colts picked Marshall Faulk over Trent Dilfer and Kiper Jr. blew a fuse on camera. An executive actually went on air and said that he didn’t care at all what Kiper Jr. thought about their pick. The next incident happened a few years later when the Colts selected Peyton Manning over Ryan Leaf. Kiper Jr. didn’t think it was the right choice for the team, even though I just saw an ESPN commercial that stated that Manning was Kiper Jr.’s #1 rated QB that year….I smell bullshit, son.

Here is my first round mock draft.

1. Miami – Jake Long, OT, Michigan
2. St. Louis – Glen Dorsey, DT, LSU
3. Atlanta – Matt Ryan, QB, Boston College
4. Oakland – Darren McFadden, RB, Arkansas
5. Kansas City – Vernon Gholston, DE/LB, Ohio State
6. New York Jets – Chris Long, DE, Virginia
7. New England – Sedrick Ellis, DT, USC
8. Baltimore – Ryan Clady, OT, Boise State
9. Cincinnati – D. Rodgers-Cromartie, Tennessee State
10. New Orleans – Aqib Talib, DB, Kansas
11. Buffalo – Jeff Otah, OT, Pittsburgh
12. Denver – Limas Sweed, WR, Texas
13. Carolina – Rashard Mendenhall, RB, Illinois
14. Chicago – Justin King, DB, Penn State
15. Detroit – Sam Baker, OT, USC
16. Arizona – Derrick Harvey, DE, Florida State
17. Kansas City – Leodis McKelvin, CB, Troy
18. Houston – DeSean Jackson, WR/KR, California
19. Philadelphia – Malcolm Kelly, WR, Oklahoma
20. Tampa Bay – Devin Thomas, WR, Michigan State
21. Washington – Antoine Cason, CB, Arizona
22. Dallas – Felix Jones, RB, Arkansas
23. Pittsburgh – James Hardy, WR, Indiana
24. Tennessee – Jerod Mayo, LB, Tennessee
25. Seattle – Chris Williams, OT, Vanderbilt
26. Jacksonville – Mike Jenkins, CB, South Florida
27. San Diego – Keith Rivers, OLB, USC
28. Dallas – Branden Albert, OG/OT, Virginia
29. San Francisco – Brian Brohm, QB, Louisville
30. Green Bay – Calais Campbell, DE, Miami
31. New York Giants – Dan Connor, LB, Penn State

There are still a few guys out there that I wasn’t sure where to put them, ‘cause their need isn’t there. I would have really liked to put Fred Davis, Early Doucet, Dustin Keller, or Brandon Flowers at the end of the first round, but I wasn’t sure if there was a need for their positions.

My argument about my own mock draft is that I don’t think Oakland should pick McFadden. Justin Fargas and Michael Bush should do a great job in their backfield. A pick of Ryan Clady would make a lot of sense, since their O-Line is pretty weak. They could end up trading McFadden to a team for help in other areas or future draft picks. I think Jerry Jones would love to get him, who knows what kind of package he will throw at Al Davis if the Raiders pick McFadden. Also, I think the Chiefs could pick Chris Long with the #4 pick, but I think they need a solid pass rusher since they just traded Allen yesterday for some draft picks. Vernon Gholston would be a better fit to start right away, he did smoke Jake Long in last year’s OSU/Michigan game a few times.
