#1 Draft Pick

miami_dolphins.jpgYes! The #1 Draft pick is in sight! This looks like the year the Dolphins will go all out and finally earn the #1 pick in next year's draft (that is, unless they already traded this one away to get Ricky Williams, too).

After four weeks of football, only the New Orleans Saints and the Saint Louis Rams are still left in the running. With the Miami defense giving up THIRTY points a game (second only to Detroit by 0.5 points), this could really be the year. Will they go an entire year without winning a single game? Well, they do have to play Cleveland, Buffalo, Houston, the Giants, Baltimore, AND Cincinnati. Surely they'll win a couple... well that's my prediction, based on their performance so far: 3-13 -- worse than the 2004 year of 4-12.

I'm still rooting for them -- they can get that draft pick if they try real hard!

Football Announcers

Someone who knows someone PLEASE talk to the NFL announcers. I know many are former players, and many have been hit in the head a lot. But someone has GOT to get them to stop with this line that I hear EVERY week:

Gee, Bob, that defense just can't take this any more. Look how tired they are. They've been out on the field too long, so they're getting tired.

Hey clueless talking heads -- the offensive players they're playing against have been on the field the EXACT SAME amount of time, down to the second! If the defense is tired from being on the field 19 minutes and 3 seconds, why isn't the offense, who has been on the field the exact same 19 minutes and 3 seconds tired, too?

Oh, they just sound like total idiots when they say that.
