Mike Tanier's Combine Report Friday: The Cold Hard Truth

Greetings, draftniks! Day Two of the Combine featured lots of quarterback press conferences, and there are no Robert Griffin or Andrew Luck types in this draft when it comes to sounding charismatic and impressive at the podium, for whatever that's worth. Also, Jim Harbaugh is an odd dude.

Mike Tanier's Combine Report Thursday: Talking Heads

Andy Benoit and I are running around Indy trying to meet with coaches and low-level front office people, rather than generally hovering around the media room. So instead of FO-only combine reports this year, we decided to just depend on the dependable Mike Tanier to do the dependable Mike Tanier thing of finding humor and one or two actual comments of interest within the dependably repetitive day-long parade of coaches and general managers refusing to give the media any details about "THE PROCESS."

Mandatory Monday: Age-Old Question

Forgot to post this yesterday, due to Daddy Duty. The ages of quarterback prospects, why it matters, and 120 hours in the life of Titus Young. Also at Sports on Earth: my wide receiver Top Fives continue with the Dolphins, and the Jets should be up by Wednesday.

Wide Receiver Top Fives: Patriots

It's that time of year: time for me to count down the top five players by position for all 32 NFL teams. This year, I am counting down wide receivers, and I am doing it at my little Tailgater blog over at Sports on Earth.

The Patriots are up first; I am starting with the AFC so I can put off worrying about 1930s "ends" for a few weeks or months. I will post an XP every time I complete a division, but feel free to stop by the Tailgater from time to time to see what I am up to. If it is too weird or wonky for the main site, it will be there.

Mandatory Monday: Hidden Agenda

I know, I should not keep going back to the Jay Cutler well. But I am not the only one making him look silly in the name of self-branding: I am clearly in line behind his fiance. At any rate, here is some football stuff.
