    From a niners standpoint that would be great, but I'd prefer to see them go at about picks 2, 16, and 25 rather than one in each round for sure - although possibly trading down, grabbing Caff and Kupp, then take Rosen or Darnold would be the best case scenario from both views aha

    I was a Crawfords fan but never could become fully vested in them because of their typical coal black rosters. I just remember Big Ben back in 2003 at Miami of Ohio and wanting the Steelers to draft him. By the time they hired Tomlin I was done with them though.

    Let me clarify; I didn't root for the Skins when RG3 was the QB. But now with Cousins and their 3\5 White OL and White LBs, I like them again.

    DoubleD, I like it.. I can picture you rooting for the red-jersey'ed, Steve Bartkowski' Falcons. They were kinda cool.
    I was watching a clip on YouTube, of the Falcons when they still played outside at Fulton. Clip was probably circa 1981. You could see a couple guys waving Rebel flags in the stands. Seemed a simpler, more enjoyable time of sports fandom.

    Yessir. I recall those days at AtlFulCo stadium...watching Mike Kenn, Bill Fralic, RC Thielemann & Jeff Van Note block for "Bart". The defense including guys like Fulton Kuykendall, Buddy Curry, Scott Case, Don Smith, Jeff Merrow & Rick Bryan.

    I was die hard Eagles fan. You all ruined football for me...lol! I never loved the Eagles more Chip Kelly's first couple years even though he was a disaster of a coach. A shame he couldn't get it together on defense.

    Kelly's problem is he wanted to be the GM too and he did a poor job of it.

    Word on the street is the media is out for Tom Brady's skin. He is the closest thing to a Trump supporter in the NFL. The rest of the sports world is crying about Trumps ban. Combine the Trump hate with Patriot hate (all those white guys) and it's going to be along week for him.

    Brady openly supported Trump several months before the Republican primary elections even began. It all started when he was "caught" with a MAGA hat in his locker...

    Brady, Belichick, Kraft, and the rest of the squad are under immense pressure to win this game, particularly given Brady's 4-game suspension, the Trump connection, and the sickening and irrational hatred of the organization (which stems from their perennial success, alleged "cheating," and noticeable fairness to white players). The night before the inauguration, Trump mentioned Brady, Belichick, and Kraft by name at a "Donor's Speech," which I believe Kraft personally attended...



    I'm very fearful that they'll lose to a very talented and hungry Falcons team, lead by the defensive-guru Dan Quinn, who gave the Patriot offense all it could handle as Seattle's DC during Superbowl 49 in 2015. If New England wins (with Brady and his 3 white WR's having a great game), it'll be yet another massive cultural victory for our side. All six of the Superbowl games in the Brady/Belichick era have been a "nail-biter," with 4 razor-thin victories and 2 last-second defeats. Thankfully, this isn't their first rodeo.

    NE motto is preparation...preparation...preparation. I think NE will get this game with every player knowing his exact role and job. Score 31 / 21 NE.

    "Do your job" was their motto the year they beat Seattle. Words to live by.
