    Huh? Pre-season plus mop up does not = #1 or #2.
    No one remembers who came in second.

    Nope, he played real games and played reasonably well in them. It was not mop up duty. That is just not a winning strategy. Drafting guys so that you can try to pull the wool over the eyes of other GM's with a position like QB. You either like the guy or you don't.

    We once traded a player for a conditional pick after telling him he was cut. I don't think drafting a player with the thought that he could be future trade bait is that far out of the question.

    If the truth be told, Harooni has crossed every apendage that it is possible to cross hoping that somehow, someway...this kid starts soon. I would venture to guess that September wouldn't be too soon for him.

    Of course...I haven't really seen this kid without his uniform but if he is not pretty old hardy har har rooni probably won't like him.

    Why? We've already drafted 2 since Eli's been here.

    I'm inclined to think they would then make hin the back yp for the duratoin of his rookie contract and, if Eli is still knocking them dead at that time, consider trading him if there is someone in college they like as a replacement or pay him as the heir apparent.

    I guess it's always an option.
