NFL Tickets – Eric’s Mock Draft

by on April 18, 2014 updated April 18, 2014

The NFL Draft is soon upon us. So, we might as well start guessing which players are going where. I’m too lazy to do the whole NFL so I’ll just muse over the first few picks in this NFL Draft, maybe 10. Maybe not.

 

 

Houston Texans – The Texans need a quarterback. So the decision really boils down to Blake Bortles or Johnny Manziel. I think Bortles fits the mold better but don’t be surprised if the Texans go for a home state hero. My pick? Blake Bortles to the Houston Texans with the first pick.

St. Louis Rams – The Rams need help on their offensive line. It’s not a flashy pick but a pick that could pay dividends for a long time and solidify the line. Greg Robinson of Auburn becomes a Ram

Buffalo Bills – Jadeveon Clowney, despite the questions around him, has too much potential for this ailing franchise to pass over.

Cleveland Browns – Manziel gets his shot. This franchise needs a focal point and an upgrade at quarterback and Manziel might give them that. At the very least he will sell tickets.

Oakland Raiders – The Raiders are in need of any kind of help in the passing game. They’ve added Matt Schaub so they’ll pick someone on the other end of those passes. I say that someone will be Mike Evans of Texas A&M.

Atlanta Falcons – Is Matt Ryan the winning quarterback we all though he was? The Falcons think so. They’ll want to protect him better and Atlanta will go with Jake Mathews, offensive tackle out of A&M to make that happen.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers – A new coach, new management, and everything is unpredictable. I’m guessing the Bucs like Sammy Watkins, wide receiver out of Clemson.

Minnesota Vikings – Still need a quarterback. With Manziel and Bortles out of the picture, Teddy Bridgewater will get his shot.

NBA Tickets – Look to the West, Spurs, Clippers, Thunder

There’s a feeling I get

When I look to the West 

 

Remember that line from the Zepplin song “Stairway to Heaven”? Well I get the feeling that the Western Conference is going to produce an NBA Championship this season. Here’s why:

The Western Conference will boast the San Antonio Spurs with the best record in the NBA and a cast of players that fit together like a glove. They also have a coach who believes in bringing his team to the finish line healthy and rested. The Spurs divide up their minutes during the regular season. To know how much difference this makes you only have to look at Indiana, the top team in the East, and see how they’ve played the last few weeks. Look at the Miami Heat. What are they doing? Abandoning the #1 seed and resting players. The Spurs get their rest during the regular season.

The Western Conference will also have the LA Clippers, a team that seems to be on an upward spiral in the last three years. That upward momentum does play a role. Players begin asking themselves what stands between them and an NBA Championship and the answer is usually nothing but hard work and smart play. Make a Game plan and stick with it.

I also believe the Oklahoma City Thunder are thirsting for a shot. This is a team that has been consistently good and steadily frustrated. That has to break sometime and this could be the year.

Finally, coming out on top of the Western Conference is harder than coming out on top of the Eastern Conference. It’s just harder. Playing tougher teams and better talent forges a champion. I know the Miami Heat are out there but it’s hard to see this Miami team as the same steamrolling unit that has claimed the title the last two years. This is the Year of the West.

Kaepernick Says “They Make Stuff Up”

updated April 11, 2014April 11, 2014

    Oh, the perils of NFL stardom. You have to be really careful about what you say in the news. That’s why they invented words like “alleged”. Reports of the involvement of Colin Kaepernick in an alleged assault on a woman are “completely wrong” according to a tweet by the quarterback. Could this be […]
