Hallelujah! The NFL Draft is (finally!!) almost here.
I'm about exhausted from every time I tune in to anything sports related, we have to have a break-down of the NFL draft. I understand it's a big story and a big deal, especially here in Titans' town where we have the number three overall pick, but if I hear one more breakdown of the strengths and weaknesses of the big three quarterbacks and who best addresses the overall Titans' needs, I think I am going to scream. (And take into consideration that this is a self-professed football nut talking here).
It reached a new level of insanity yesterday when The Tennessean published half a page
, breaking down the personality preferences of each of the big three QBs. Seriously, it's like a MySpace quiz gone horribly, horribly wrong. I mean, sure the Eva Longoria vs Angelina Jolie debate is interesting, but does it mean you can read a defense, direct a game winning drive and lead us to the Super Bowl? (Of course, I realize that as sick of this as I am, the various sports writers in town must be exhausted trying to come up with some new way to cover this story).
Of course, no matter who the Titans pick first in the draft or how the draft plays out (will they trade out of the number three pick if _______ isn't there?) , there will be a backlash Monday morning as the entire viewing and listening audience pretends we're Floyd Reese and goes, "I am happy they took ____________ but why didn't they take ___________?"
At this point, I have only two things I hope from all of this. One is the Titans get the player they need to bring the team back to a competitive level and two that they not waste the pick like they did last year on Adam "Punkman" Jones.
