Long Awaited Review of Lingerie Football League
THE TEAMS If you want to see the Lingerie Football League, you can see it in the following ten cities: Tampa (Breeze), Philly (Passion), Miami (Caliente), Orlando (Fantasy), Baltimore (Charm), Chicago (Bliss), San Diego (Seduction), LA (Temptation), Dallas (Desire) and Seattle (Mist).
THE GAME It's 7 on 7 football. 50 yard field. I watched two games and am not sure if there is actually a kick besides each one to open the halves. This was never explained and it is not even explained well on the website. 1 (2yd) or 2 pt (5yd) option after a touchdown. There must be two passes attempted every four downs (This seems to be a rule change in between each of the games I DVR'd). 18 minutes running clock halves. I guess this is because very new league with women has to begin in halves (see NBA, W) before going to quarters or something. Why? I have no idea.
HOW TO SEE IT On MTV2 on Friday Nights.
THE SCHEDULE Now, I learned about the schedule after I watched the games and went to the website. This made some of the commentating very funny after the fact. Each team only plays a 4 game season. The top two in each division face in a League Championship and then a Lingerie Bowl.
LET'S GET HORNY GUY STUFF OUT OF THE WAY
Thought #1: This is going to be really hot. Reality: Yeah, it still is. I mean, it's women tight bikini-type things playing football. Yeah, but it is not as hot as the horny guy thought is. They wear shoulder pads that are somehow tied into the "tops" they wear or something. They also wear hockey helmets, pads, eye black. They also wear garters like they were wrist bands or something.
Thought #2: There might be accidental nudity. Reality: None. Nada. Somehow the uniforms themselves never move at all. Ever. I wonder if there was actual tests done to prevent this. I think there was.
Thought #3: I mean, it still will be like watching 14 Playboy spreads running around on a field, right? Reality: Maybe I need to go to a game, but even in HD at home, it is not like that at all. Seeing a rug burn on a good-looking woman after a tackle is not that hot. The sweat does not help much, either.
IN GAME ACTION
Most of the plays look like real plays we see in regular football. I did see an end around, a sweep, a counter, a reverse sweep, a real screen, a delay, a draw, an option, a QB sneak and even a FB dive. There are not a lot of passes that go 10 yards. One girl on Philly can actually throw, though. She can't throw further than me, but I had a arm, but she could definitely toss one past a couple friends of mine could throw. I did see a 35 yard spiral. There are some good hits by some of the women. 3 or 4 per game.
This is by the far the best part of the action on television. The commentators on MTV2 go out of their way to embarrass themselves with their words and I could not be happier. Certain players are showcased during the games to try and promote them. A player from Philly was called a cross between "Chris Johnson and Andre Johnson." They talk of the players being free agents and rookies and veterans and stars and as top players at their positions. A group of d-linewomen are described as bookends (5' 7", 132 and 5' 10", 160) for Philly. The commentators mention the Power Rankings (which do exist on the LFL website) and talk about there "not being enough tape" on certain players. Players are described as All-Fantasy QBs, WRs, or RBs.
There definitely was some mistakes in the presentation. They sell the point that the LFL is the only game where the fans don't leave when it is 30-0 at half (It was 33-0 during Philly game) way too hard. A couple times, they say "there you see the numbers" and there is no graphic. There was an expected number of veiled sexual references. There is some audio of "trash talk," which is normally just a girl screaming in a way-too-manly way.
It took 7 minutes for there to be a shot of drunk guys in the stands at the Philly game. The Seattle game seemed to actually be sold out and the crowd was loud. There even was a staged false start by Chicago to promote this fact and make the crowd sound like they were the Seahawks crowd. There was a shot of a Japanese businessman that could have led to many obvious jokes; I am glad the commentators let it go. There was a shot of female fans in Seattle wearing the uniforms without the pads. There should have been more shots of them. Guys now have a new idea for anniversary gifts.
It's not bad. The website is not done cheap. There is enough fun and humor that proves that the league is not actually taken as seriously as the commentators make it sound on MTV2. One good instance is talk about the line for a league game at the Las Vegas Wynn. Maybe Buzmeg can make a stop and let me know if there are actually lines for these games. The actual lack of horny guy stuff is disappointing. Tickets cost about as much as an Arena League game, except it has hot women. I guess that is what this whole thing comes down to: Would I rather go to an AFL game or a LFL game? Heck, I'd try a LFL game. The research was well worth it the Chris/Andre Johnson comment was the only thing I heard.

Yep, Still Me, Again.
WHAT HAS HAPPENED SO FAR?
Well, we did pretty well with our picks this year. The PolishguyPodcast got 5 of the 8 playoff teams correct. the predictions did not miss any one team by more than two spots and the only surprises that were completely missed was the San Diego Padres and the San Francisco Giants. 16 of the 30 teams were picked exactly correct in their places of record. Do I have an east coast bias? I picked the AL East and the NL East exactly correct.
Also, we have a good chance to to get some of the post-season awards correct as Halladay and Sabathia each have good chances at the Cy Young. Evan Longoria will probably finished in the top three of MVP. Troy Tulowitzki waited just a tad too long to look like a MVP, but will probably still get some votes. Julio Borbon as AL ROY? Um, let's just skip that. Jason Heyward as NL ROY? He has good competition with Buster Posey, but also has a great chance.
The team we almost picked in the NL Central, the Reds, turned out to not need an extra year to make the playoffs as they make it for the first time in 15 years. Their last chance was 1999 when the Mets saw Al Leiter shut them out to get into the playoffs.
MATCHUP #1: New York Yankees and Minnesota Twins
-Can the Twins get a break? They are 0-9 in their last nine playoff games, last beating these Yankees in 2004 in Game One before they lost three straight in that one. Since then, they have been swept by the Oakland Athletics and these same Yankees just a year ago. Also, they found out for sure that Justin Morneau will miss the remainder of the season with his concussion. One can only hope that his fine career has not been cut short. It would be a shame.
-You think the Twins want some replay? The now famous missed call on Joe Mauer's double that never actually happened last year helped fuel some of the talk for baseball to get more and more replay. Bud Selig and the ancient-thinking by him and his cronies are desperately hoping that nothing happens again this year.
Sidebar: Seriously, baseball, get with the program. The solution is deliriously simple and not hard to implement. Get a seventh umpire to sit in a booth and just monitor the game on TV to check safe/out, fair/foul and home run calls. How is this embarrassing? Why do they not want to get things correct? Cheating may be a part of the game, the human element is something that does not need to exist once technology circumvents it. Baseball has literally turned into that old man who just bought his first computer and does not know how to do an email. Bud Selig is currently trying to write with a pen on his computer screen. I do hear that he drives a fine 1974 Chevy Nova, so he has that going for him.
-Is AJ Burnett alive? Well, yes, but Joe Girardi and the Yankees secretly made a great move this year when they sat Phil Hughes for a few weeks. Why? It means that Burnett may not have to pitch at all. CC Sabathia has experience on three days rest and Burnett can sit back and just be called upon if Andy Pettitte throws 75 pitches in 3 innings and does not look like himself.
-Who are the key players? Delmon Young has to keep pretending he is as good as his stats say in the absence of Morneau and really has matured. Alex Rodriguez must continue his secretly very good season and prove that his post-season demons are gone for good.
Some Stats: The Yankees offense led the league in runs and OBP. They were third in HRs.......The Yankees faced the most amount of pitches in the league, again.......The Yankees were 64-40 vs. RHP and just 31-27 versus lefties.....Nick Swisher had a .335BaBIP as he changed his approach to more of a hacker........Delmon Young .826 OPS, Morneau 1.055, Thome 1.026...Thome had a HR every 11.04AB, his best since 2002 with Cleveland when he hit 52 in 480 at bats.
Prediction: Yankees in 4.
MATCHUP #2: Texas Rangers and Tampa Bay Rays
-Which Josh Hamilton will we get? It is an absolute shame every time I think about how good Hamilton could have been in his career if his body was not so fragile from years of taking drugs and abusing himself. He may still get MVP despite missing almost all of September. Despite that, he hit when the Rangers need him most. He hit .400+ in the months they needed him most. I can only hope that his ribs are fine we get to see him at his best.
-Will Cliff Lee dominate? Maybe not. The Rays were the best team against left-handers in the league, but this is not ordinary left-hander. They best get used to him, though, because they will see him a lot next year in pinstripes.
-Do the Rays have anything behind David Price? Yes, no and maybe. James Shields had an ERA that hovered around 7 in September and allowed 50 hits in his final 32 innings of the season. Matt Garza had shown the ability to shut down teams, but he has also blown up at inopportune times. I am going to guess that we will get the good version of Garza in the playoffs. He reminds me a bit of the mentality that the younger Josh Beckett had in 2003, 2004 and 2007. Wade Davis is a rookie and lacks the postseason experience. He also could turn out to have a good post-season as well, but let us not expect any 1997 Jaret Wright here.
-Do the Rangers have a chance without a fully effective Hamilton? I don't think so. The team still had a record above .500 without Hamilton, but he just means so much to the team.
-No team will be giving up too many ninth-inning leads. Feliz and Soriano each only had 3 blown saves.
Key Players? Josh Hamilton and every Rays starter not named David Price.
Some Stats: Cliff Lee has great splits, but was just 4-6 as a Ranger and was beaten three time by the Rays.......Incredibly, James Shields allowed 90 extra base hits in his starts, hitters against him all basically looked like Scott Rolen in his prime against him.....The Rays led the league in walks and stolen bases....The Rays win percentage during the day was 6th in the Majors, the first two games are day games......Elvis Andrus and Julio Borbon combined for 31 bunt hits this year.
Prediction: Rays in five.
MATCHUP #3 Philadelphia Phillies and Cincinnati Reds
-Do the Reds have a chance? Well, yeah, if they had three Joey Vottos. The Reds were the surprise team and won with a combination of Joey Votto paired with just enough pitching. This is also the healthiest the Phillies have been all year. Good luck Cincinnati.
-What do the Reds have going for them? The fact that they are young and hungry and don't know any better. The Reds led the NL in runs scored fueled by a team that could have a homer hit by almost any spot in their lineup. Any pitcher who feels like they can just get Votto out and then cruise will be battered relentlessly. Scott Rolen looks ten years younger in that hitters park.
-This should be a fast series. Why? The Phils allowed the lowest walk rate against them in the NL and the Reds had the highest swing percentage in the NL. I do not think this bodes well for the Reds, especially if they get down early. When a team faces veterans like Halladay and Oswalt with a lead and they are not very disciplined, it would lead to a situation where the Reds get eaten alive. One player who has been good for the Reds but may have a tough series is Drew Stubbs because anything with good movement can get him out. Halladay and Oswalt are too experienced to give him easy fastballs to hit.
-Why are the Phillies the favorites? Because they have the pitching, the bullpen, enough defense and a bruising offense. Many have said that the Phillies are good because they have the same model that many good AL teams have and they is absolutely true. Roy Halladay is possibly the best pitcher out there today.
-Big lefties. Cole Hamels will be a big factor in the series and the Reds have some lefties to combat the Philly sluggers in some key situations. Arthur Rhodes and Aroldis Chapman will have key roles.
-Key Players? Jayson Werth. He will have to make lefties pay if he gets to face them after Howard and Utley get their shots at them. For the Reds, Joey Votto must lead his team. He may not like that moniker, but with questionable pitching, he will have to lead his team and make them believe.
Some Stats: Roy Halladay led the league in innings, complete games and shutouts....Roy Oswalt is 4-0 in his post-season career....Carlos Ruiz finished with a .302 batting average this year, yes, that Carlos Ruiz...
Prediction: Phils in 3.
MATCHUP #4: San Francisco Giants and Atlanta Braves
-How many runs will be scored? This is a fitting way for Bobby Cox to go out. He is in the playoffs and it will be decided by who has the best pitching. There may only be 30 combined runs scored if this series goes five.
-Who has the better rotation? Lincecum, Cain and Zito versus Hudson, Lowe and Hanson. This is basically a wash. The questions around Barry Zito and his overall effectiveness is canceled out by the youth of Tommy Hanson and his ability to lose the strike zone at times. The other four are about equal as well. Matt Cain is probably the best pitching in the league no one talks about. Cain routinely does not get runs in his career and normally is near the top in the league in quality starts and WHIP.
-Who has the better lineup? This is also tough to say. While Brian McCann and Heyward led the Braves, the rest of their lineup is aging, not very good or declining. Rick Ankiel has hole sin his swing and Derrick Lee has lost most of his bat speed. Alex Gonzalez can hit some homers and provide a glove, but he reminds too many of another version of Jose Hernandez. Pablo Sandoval saw his plate discipline come back and bite in his second full season. Pat Burrell awoke after his release and signing and he alone makes the Giants lineup a bit more scary than Atlanta. Aubrey Huff and Andres Torres were able to get on base in front of Burrell and star Buster Posey.
-The Playoff Run effect. The Braves fought tooth and nail until the end and were forced to use Tim Hudson over the weekend in a key game, which forced the Braves to alter their rotation just a tad while the Giants threw Jonathan sanchez on the final day of the season to end the Padres hope. This may give a slight edge to the Giants.
-Key Players? The entire Giants lineup and Brian McCann. McCann must lead this team in the batter's box. The team cannot just rely on Jason Heyward to drive in all their runs. They will need someone to lead the masses.
Some Stats: Starting with 2007, Eric Hinske has been on a team to go to the World Series the last three years, advantage Atlanta.....Craig Kimbrel had only one outing where he did not record a strikeout.......The Giants had a 1.78 ERA as a team in September.....Billy Wagner's strikeout per nine rate of 13.5 trailed only Carlos Marmol.
Prediction: Braves in five.
Phils over Braves in Five.
Yankees over Rays in Seven.
WORLD SERIES: YANKEES OVER PHILS IN SEVEN. Hey, I picked this at the beginning of the year. I'm not changing it now.

This post was one of mine on there and has some comments on the new QBs in the NFL. Enjoy. Also, Podcast coming this weekend.
-#4: I think our friend from Notre Dame has the least chance to succeed. It is a weird situation with two QBS drafted by the team and it is a team in a bit of a transition and has a quarterback that was hot at the end of last season. I do not see how it is not Matt Moore's job to lose. That being said, Golden Jimmy ran an offense with some pro terminology and could be in the right situation if he is groomed to be a Jake Plummer-type. The ball control offense there may help and the play-action and roll-out could make it so that he only has to read half the field and make things easier. Having an athlete like Steve Smith come down with even your errant deep throws has got to help with confidence. Even though many do not like John Fox, I actually think he is not a bad coach at all.
-#3: Second-least to succeed is Sam Bradford. I don't care that he added 15 lbs. of muscle. I do care that he looks like he can make most of the throws and is accurate. One huge problem, though, is the surgeries and that shoulder. That shoulder makes me very scared. If his shoulder cannot take the hit from a college lineman that did not look too abnormal in terms of how he contacted the ground, how is it going to do with a really fast fat guy on it? Without the shoulder issues, I would have put him as most likely to succeed. I feel about him as I do about 1,000 carry college running backs. No sir, I don't like it. Damn, another thing I need to do research on is if there is any validity to that theory.
-#2: Anyway, on to Tebow. It is sad that I have to put the best H-back of the draft on the list as the #2 quarterback most likely to succeed. It is sad that I have to hear at least three more years of his name even if he busts. What isn't sad is the fact that he is a tireless worker and really has all those good things about him that we hear about. He has about the same chance of having a Big Ben moment as we have seeing the entire world population of women becoming completely sane at the same exact second. Maybe that's what the Mayans were really talking about. Anyway, because he is smart and blah blah blah; he has some chance to succeed, even at quarterback.
-#1: Colt McCoy has the best chance to succeed. Most throws have an air distance of 35 yards or less (I think) and I scoff at anything about how bad a guy's arm is until he actually plays in the league. If Charlie Frye can start as many games as he has in his career, then Colt McCoy can certainly get a chance. BTW, Charlie Frye is the answer to the question of "What do you get when a quarterback has everything you want except that his arm is a lot like Jim Miller's was when it was all torn up?" Chuck has what is known as a boomerang arm. Once the air flow catches it, it might come back. Colt McCoy has the best of the Best Case Scenarios which to learn from a veteran leader like Jake Delhomme and a veteran QB guy like Mike Holmgren. He even has a good to above-average line in front of him. He can sit out a year or two and get into the game when he actually knows the system. He could have a rise like Carson Palmer did. Now, if Delhomme has 10INT in 4 games to begin the year, all bets are off.

Thursday, April 22, 2010
7:31: Is that Stuart Scott? Oh, no, that’s Gerald McCoy.
7:32 Mel’s forehead seems to finally winning the battle. It could be long term effects of too much gel.
7:34 Will Goodell suspend a fan in the audience?
7:35-Rams on the clock.
7:38-Tom Jackson says Bulger used to be all-right. I guess all right means “Two-Time Pro Bowler.”
7:40-Rams select Sam Bradford, QB. In all honesty, I question the first time he gets sacked on that shoulder.
7:41-Bradford looks a bit like Howdy Doody.
Lions are now on the clock. Stuart Scott may get picked. And Mike Williams just ate another sandwich.
7:47 Lions select Suh. Matt Millen is pissed that he never had it this easy. He tried to call in a pick for Dez Bryant.
7:54 Jon Gruden tried to call in this pick. Gruden calls in Gerald McCoy. Taking the place of McCoy for the draft; a crying Stuart Scott. Bucs accept Gruden’s pick.
Goodell has announced a fine of $5,000 for Gerald McCoy for having an un-sanctioned number as a DT.
8:00 Trent Silverback Williams is picked. Apparently, Michael Crichton is part owner of the Redskins.
Goodell checked the personal conduct policy and deemed the nickname responsible. Goodell decided that the original nickname of Trent “Greg Oden’s Cell Phone” Williams would have been a fineable offense.
8:09 Eric Berry is picked at five. Podcast picks are 5 for 5. It should go downhill from here. Everyone has made smart picks so far, and I do not just say that because the podcast is 5 for 5. Good thing the Raiders pick soon.
8:14 Pete Carroll tried to take Reggie Bush, but was told he was already drafted. He just tried to buy Goodell a SUV to get what he wants. Goodell announces a fine of $10,000 for bribery. The NCAA just said they saw nothing.
I just saw Russell Okung on the phone and it was corded. You can tell Okung did not play at USC.
8:17 Cleveland is on the clock. Mike Holmgren just announced retirement to run a fishing boat. Rumors are swirling that the Browns will select Thad Turner form Ohio University. They like that he was second team All-MAC and had leadership qualities. He once did a bong hit with Peter King.
8:25 The Browns take Joe Haden. The podcast made its first miss of the year. Joe Haden looks like an Avatar being. If he fails in the NFL, he can go back to his home world. Cleveland lets out a collective sigh. He may be a good corner if he gets his ears cropped by the vet.
8:30 Raiders pull the first “Yoink” of the evening. Rolando McClain gets picked and every single team between 11 and 15 are pissed. They really think that the defense now can out-score opposing offenses. The Bruce Gradkowski Show should allow the defense to try and prove it.
8:34 CJ Spiller is picked as the Bills have decided to run the T formation because Marv Levy is the only who knows how to run it. In the second round, they will pick Tebow. Podcast picks are out the window, but this is entertaining. It has just been announced that Marshawn Lynch has been fined for trying to sell Spiller weed over the phone. Levy ripped the phone away and ratted him out.
8:40 Jags just selected Aluala from Cal. Most of the other teams are laughing. Gruden’s face is very red. He either killed a co-ed during the break or is mad that he cannot actually coach any of the QBs he had on his ESPN special. Hack announces his nickname as Aluala the Slender. I accept.
8:43 First trade of the night comes about five spots after a lot of people had it. After McClain was gone, Josh McDaniels angrily threw his bottle on the floor. San Fran is supposed to take a corner here, but after the last four moves, I am convinced that Singletary will pick himself. Or it might be Gary Fencik.
8:46 Anthony Davis is picked. The room settled down a bit. Podcast selected Bulaga for them at 17, so we got the position right.
8:48 The Chargers trade up for reasons unknown. It may be to announce that Shawne Merriman will actually retire to become a firefighter. San Diego is happy.
8:52 Chargers select Ryan Matthews 16 spots ahead of when we had him. Other than the fact that no one really wanted a RB, it is a good pick. Perhaps Norv Turner can now have 4 bad draft points in his regime. Not even Wade Phillips has done that yet. They could still be tied by the end of the night, though.
8:54 Philly trades up as we thought. They should take Earl Thomas but with the way this has gone they may take Danny DeVito.
8:59 Eagles take Brandon Graham. Every Ohio State Alum and current student hates him. It is a smart pick for Philly except for the fact that they allowed a ton of TD passes when they blitzed, as stated by ESPN. Eagles are hoping for new rule to allow for a 12th defender on passing downs.
9:07 Seahawks take Earl Thomas. This is a classic solid pick. Jon Gruden may want to make out with him. It’s either him or Pete Carroll. Seahawks are fined by Goodell $25,000 for making two smart picks in the first round, thus subtracting from the entertainment value of the broadcast. This conduct is deemed unbecoming of a new NFL regime and is in violation of policy.
9:11 Coming back from commercial, it shows the Giants on the clock and Jim Sorgi is listed as a key arrival. Apparently clipboard holding was a team deficiency last year. Several cups of coffee were also dropped last season. Never thought I would hear about David Carr dropping things. NFL is now investigating tampering charges between Peyton and Eli Manning.
9:17 Giants take Jason Pierre-Paul. Gruden also calls him JPP proving that he cannot just kill co-eds and collect quarterbacks, he can also yell out obvious nicknames.
9:23 As LeBron fans, we check into the Cavs-Bulls game. Chicago fans are at game because Bears don’t pick until 2012. Bulls are up four and LeBron has scored 32.
9:24 While we were away, the Titans selected Derrick Morgan. This is another smart value pick. The draft is getting boring and predictable. Goodell is about to plan a David Stern draft lottery move and switch envelopes.
9:26 Mike Iupati is picked and the Niners have picked two linemen. Steve Young has just been taken to the doctor for a concussion-like injury. Goodell is preparing the rigged envelope. Two million fantasy football players are already bragging about getting Frank Gore in the second round.
9:30 Steelers pick Pouncey and podcast is right on a pick again. In a cute move, a kid from Make-A-Wish makes the pick. Too bad this move was planned in the last 24 hours to help the franchise look better. In other news, Ben Roethlisberger is announced as missing. Dan Rooney may be personally burying the body.
9:33 Atlanta takes Sean Weatherspoon ten spots too early. They actually missed Keith Brooking.
9:40 Houston does not sprint to the podium despite Kyle Wilson being available. The Polishguy Podcast contingent is confused. They take Kareem Jackson. With Kyle Wilson falling a slight bit, Rex Ryan can still flick off the league. Goodell has telepathically fined Ryan $10,000 for his thoughts.
9:42 Bengals select quickly. Palmer needs a weapon and a new knee. He is going to have to settle for the tight end that the podcast predicted-Jermaine Gresham.
9:45 Patriots trade with the Broncos to collect more picks as usual. Belichick can now select even more mediocre players that have not panned out so far. At least he will have 13 of them.
9:47 Broncos select Demaryius Thomas. The Podcast had him going to the Broncos at 45, but 22
picks ahead of that is okay, too. As long as the podcast is right, everything is right in the world. Josh McDaniels can have his final bottle of the night and can go to bed. It will be a shame when Josh finds out that Thomas only runs go routes.
Ed Werder tells us that McDaniels liked Thomas because he reminded him of Brandon Marshall. If this sounds weird, it is because even Steve Young and his head injury noticed the comment. So the Broncos picked a guy who reminds them of a guy they already had. Ummmm…..
9:53 Packers select Bulaga from Iowa. This is another good value pick. I’m angry.
9:58 My dog has big ears. Hack mentions that she looks like Joe Haden. He might not be happy about the Browns pick. The other clue is that he is putting bamboo straws underneath his fingernails.
10:00 Dallas trades up to select Dez Bryant. Roy Williams’ and Dez’s personalities won’t clash at all, I’m sure. Goodell announces suspension of Dez Bryant for 4 games just to get it out of the way. New England can select a 14th mediocre player.
10:07 Broncos traded up in get back in the first round. They pick Tebow! Somehow Tebow is the second best passer in this draft. I think he can replace Peyton Hillis at fullback. Each of the last two Notre Dame quarterbacks are both pissed. Claussen thinks he should have sold that “went to a Catholic School” thing in interviews instead of the “I’m an a-hole” route. There is a 50/50 shot that this is the switched envelope pick.
Also, Tebow is just one state south from one perfect for him to start his cult.
With all the trades, we have lost track of who is picking. We hope ESPN is right.
10:19 Arizona selects Dan Williams. Chalk another up for the podcast.
10:26 The Patriots try and select a defensive back for the future….again. I had to give Hack smelling salts.
10:30 Miami is on the clock. We don’t think Parcells is trying to trade with the Cowboys. Someone mentioned Quincy Carter as a joke. A nameless Dolphins coach is taken out via stretcher. In another office, Jerry Jones is advised to stop drinking.
Parcells selects the next Leonard Marshall in the name of Jared Odrick. This is another smart pick. Jerry Jones is given another shot in hopes that he will wonder onto the stage.
10:34 ESPN goes to commercial. We try and name as many Jet draft busts as possible while at commercial. Brady, O’Brien, McNeil, Thomas, Neagle, Gholston, Thomas, Marvin Jones, ….
10:39 Jets select Kyle Wilson. The Jets Eff-you moment happens and officially becomes the greatest Polishguy Podcast prediction ever! We decide that Rex Ryan is awesome.
10:41 Minnesota is on the clock. A quarterback is mentioned by Adam Shefter. Turns out we were right with the joke about Tebow to the Bills. Amazing! They might have actually planned to run the T formation. Steve Young is talking like he wants to play for the Vikings this year.
Tom Jackson is clearly uncomfortable. Kiper has less hair than he did at 7:30.
With all first round grade defensive backs gone, Lions trade up with the Vikings.
10:47 Matt Millen is kicked out of the Lions war room holding an envelope holding the name of wide receiver Damian Williams. Mike Williams just had a donut. Charles Rogers is dreaming of a conjugal visit…or just some drugs.
10:49 Lions select Jahvid Best. Now they can have two running backs who only play 8 games each due to injury. So I guess that gives them 16 total games now. Plans may be remove Smith’s head from his body and put it on Best’s so they can have Kevid Bith, a running back with no injury history.
10:53 Two picks left. We are both only semi-conscious at this point. Drafts during the day are much better. We hear Gruden making a joke about a “dumbass” and Kiper laughs hysterically. Don’t think we were supposed to hear that. Everyone seems to be thinking up excuses for Steve Young to not to be on the set tomorrow.
10:56 Colts select a hybrid player in Jerry Hughes from TCU. He is a good fit for the system. Since Peyton Manning has reached Godfather status, Goodell announces that Jim Sorgi tampered with himself and is fined $2 billion dollars.
11:01 Hurricane Katrina and the Saints are mentioned in the same sentence for the 2,456,738,392nd time. Drew Brees is a good guy. Sean Payton is smart.
It should be mentioned that Kiper’s 4th overall player is still on the board.
11:04 Drew Brees comes on the stage to make the pick for the Saints. Brees announces to the world he is on the cover of Madden. Don’t be surprised if he hurts his knee walking off the stage. Patrick Robinson is picked to end the first round. Hack is asleep.
POLISHGUY PODCAST SUMMARY
-Of the thirty-two players picked in the first round, we had 24 of them right.
-Eleven of 32 picks were picked exactly correct with the team, including six of the first six.
-Of the missed picks, we had the position right on four more occasions.
-We had Mike Iupati picked before the Giants pick.
-We had the Eagles trading up.
-Overall, not a bad performance, we think.
