NFL Draft Historically Based on Lies

Now let me get this straight, agents, GMs, scouts and just about everybody else involved in the draft aren't exactly truthful about their intentions? Get outta town! So maybe this isn't earth-shattering stuff, but it's still worth the read for this story alone: "In 1982, Eagles coach Dick Vermeil told good friend Chuck Knox, head coach of the Buffalo Bills, how much he liked Clemson wide receiver Perry Tuttle. Lo and behold on draft day, Buffalo traded a spot ahead of the Eagles and took Tuttle.

Ricky Williams Suspended for 2006

Congratulations, Ronnie Brown! You're going to be on the cover of Pro Football Prospectus 2006! We hope you are as excited as Matt Hasselbeck was. Seriously, I have "Ricky Williams suspended" as Auto-Text now. In later news, Onterrio Smith has applied for reinstatement and been denied.

TMQ's Mocking the Mock Draft 2006

The return! I always enjoy the seventh-round draft projections. Before anyone gets huffy about Gregg not mentioning us in here, remember, we're the competition now.

Colts' Pursuit of Bears RB in 'Rumor Stage'

If this were to come about in the next few days it would at least allow the Colts to address a defensive need in the first round instead of drafting a running back to replace Edgerrin James. I don't know what Thomas Jones's contract looks like, but he'd have to be a substantially cheaper alternative to James, while still being a quality back (he finished 11th in DPAR last season).

NFL Network Will Re-Air Four Games per Week

Years from now people will say, "That's the best invention since the NFL Network decided to replay four games a week condensed into 90 minute segments by eliminating halftime and other elements not critical to the outcome.'' It's not as pithy as "sliced bread," but it really conveys the point.

TMQ Returns to ESPN

Guess who's back, back again? Gregg is back, tell a friend. Na na na na na. Na na na na na. Na na na na na. Na na na na. King Kaufman has the details in an interview with the man himself, although this means you have to sit and look at some pictures of rotating coffees. (Really.) Thanks King for the props, not leaving FO off of TMQ's historical timeline. By the way, for all of you who constantly complain that TMQ is just the same stuff over and over, guess what -- Gregg knows this. It's popular, and nobody forces you to read it. So it's time for you to stop all of your sobbing.

Ricky Manning Charged with Assault in L.A.

There's a lesson in here somewhere and I think it's this: When you sign an offer sheet worth up to $21 million, you shouldn't be eating at Denny's. Unless of course, you're there for the Moons Over My Hammy. Otherwise, there's no excuse.

The Unparalleled Genius Of Barry Switzer

Is there ever not a good time to make fun of Barry Switzer? As Deadspin mentions, "If you think [John] Madden's too easy on the players and coaches in the NFL, here's a chance to re-shape your opinion." (And by the way, a few weeks ago I wrote that I didn't know unauthorized footage of NFL games appearing on the internet was a problem. After seeing this, I now get it.)
