Over the next week I will be recapping my overall thoughts on what every team did in the 2022 #NFLDraft.

Today I will start with the NFC West and cover the @AZCardinals, @RamsNFL, @49ers and @Seahawks
the @AZCardinals recap

2 (55) TE Trey McBride
3 (87) EDGE Cam Thomas
3 (100) Edge Myjai Sanders
6 (201) RB Keaontay Ingram
6 (215) OG Lecitus Smith
7 (244) CB Christian Matthew
7 (256) LB Jesse Luketa
7 (257) OG Marquis Hayes

fav pick: Thomas
value pick: Luketa
? pick: McBride
draft haul has to include trading for M Brown giving them explosive speed WR they need with loss of Kirk & suspension of Nuk. I think they had more pressing needs than TE after giving Ertz a new 3 yr deal. Think Thomas can become starter & Luketa could have went early 4th

My #Packers rant:

Why am I more upset at Aaron Rodgers than anyone else on the team?

Because Rodgers made me believe in "The Last Dance", when every fiber of my being had consistently said, FOR YEARS, we needed to move on for the betterment of the team in the long run. /1
Me, 2018: We need to avoid any long-term deals with Rodgers, tag him until we can't tag him anymore, and hand the reins to the next guy. We can't bury our future cap in overpaying one guy.

#Packers, 2018: Signs Rodgers to a cap-crippling $134M extension.

Me: Why?

/2
Me, 2021: That was our All In Year. We can't re-resign all these veterans without crippling the cap even more down the line. We need to trade Rodgers for max trade capital, as well as other overpriced veterans.

#Packers, 2021: Extended Bahk, Jones, Clark. All In Again.

Some sportsbooks offer “Big 2” bets - which is the Packers OR Bucs to win the NFC, and Chiefs OR Titans to win the AFC at around -150 each.

Here is why this number is short and I think the “YES” on both is a good bet: 👇🏻

🧵
Starting in the NFC, according to my numbers, GB is 2/1 or has a 50% chance to reach the Super Bowl and Tampa Bay has a 24% chance. If you add the two, since you need either one to win to hit the bet, you get a 74% Packers or Bucs win the NFC.
74% translates to -285 in American odds, which is much higher than the -150 line and the implied 40% probability. “Yes”, on the #Bucs or #Packers to win the conference is a solid bet at the current price.

#Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is on the @PatMcAfeeShow right now.

Aaron Rodgers is blaming cancel culture for him misleading about his vaccination status and then not following league protocols.

Aaron Rodgers claims he has an allergy to an ingredient in mRNA vaccines.

Also adds the in his opinion, NFL vax protocols are "not based in science" but were "shame-based"

Says the Packers knew his status... when he didn't follow protocols.

** Post-Week 7 Review // Pre-Week 8 #fantasyfootball Lookahead Thread **

Another thought dump rather than
Position-by-Position Rundown. Feel this format may be less organized but more efficient.
* Justin Fields Dream is officially dead
* Sounds strange but Allen Rob’s best hope = Andy Dalton
* Painful but still buying low on Cal Ridley as long as he keeps getting 10 tgts/game. Bye also out of way
* Somehow, ARodgers has been *better* in box score w/o DAdams last 3 years
* Tonyan & RCobb looking like must-starts on TNF as Covid wipes out #Packers top pass catchers
* Jalen Hurts drafters need a QB2 handy as benching rumors heat up. Suggestion: Danny Dimes
* Tyler Higbee peripheral usage screams buy buy buy. #Rams featuring him in scoring position

#Packers QB Aaron Rodgers to @Kenny_Mayne on SportsCenter on voluntary offseason workouts: "Yes, I did not show up."

On whether he's making news tonight:

"I'm just here so I don't get fined."

On the future:

"Anything is on the table at this point."
Rodgers asked about #Packers fans taking team's side: "I think sometimes people forget what really makes an organization. History is important, legacy of so many people who come before you, but the people. People make the organization."
Rodgers on his situation with #Packers: "It's never been about the draft pick, picking Jordan. I love Jordan. He's a great kid. ... It's just kind of about a philosophy, and maybe forgetting it is about the people that make the thing go."

.@MayorGenrich is wearing a Sterling Sharpe jersey for today's news conference with former #Packers coach Mike Holmgren.

"It didn't have to be this bad. It really didn't," Holmgren says of Trump's COVID-19 response. "He knew and he did not take action."
Holmgren says he's voted in every election but never been outspoken. Says he believes this is the most important elex of his lifetime and, since WI was so close in 2016, he thought he might be able to help Biden here.

"If I'm ever going to do this, this is the time to do it."
Asked about critics who say it's WI's fault there are no fans at GB games, @MayorGenrich: Trump has pitted govs against each other to compete for fed support. If he had been "sincerely interested in working w/ govs of both parties…things would have played out much differently."

Instant Round 2 Grades! Here we go! #NFLDraft2020

Starting with...
33. CIN - Tee Higgins WR9 ... C

My 44th overall player, I think there are better values & better WRs available.

I also would've gone OT here, unless an AJ Green trade is imminent.

Building around Burrow is a good move, though. #Bengals
34. IND - Michael Pittman Jr. WR12 ... D

I'm lower than many on Pittman - 53rd - I just think there are much better prospects at WR. Multiple are still on the board: Laviska 21st, Mims 36th, Edwards 43rd.

Also, not the route I would've gone here with such a valuable pick.

Richard Sherman (@RSherman_25) has as many catches (1 INT) as he has allowed in coverage (1 reception) in two career NFC Championship appearances (both wins).

#Packers Aaron Rodgers on his non-MVP like numbers this year: "The level of success and the way that I feel I am playing is different in this offense this year. I don't need to throw 40 touchdowns for us to win." Continued 👇
"I need to be great on my checks, I need to be as efficient as possible, and I need to take care of the football. I feel like last game was one of my better games of the season. I'm never lowering the bar for myself." - More 👇
"The expectations are for greatness. "But my responsibility was to get us in checks, and my responsibility was to get us in the right protection scheme, and to take care of the football." 👇

Meanwhile (part 3)...Baltimore is suffering a period of intense gun violence, with more people shot than some larger cities. Why? Per @AlecMacGillis

This morning, I called this my favorite stat this year. But then I thought that was an exaggeration. It's my favorite stat for the #Cardinals.

Here's my favorite stat for every other team. #Thread
#Falcons in 2016: 1.57 TDs per FG attempt
2017: 0.85 TDs per FG att
#Ravens
Joe Flacco was 7th in pass atts in 2017, never threw for 300 yds, averaged <200 per game.

One of my favorite moments from the #Packers season. Week 5 in Dallas. Jordy Nelson is lined up wide to the right against a man lined up in outside technique.
Rodgers gives Nelson a little hand sign, motioning Nelson to the slot. #Packers
Man stays with Nelson, but he's still lined up in outside technique, meaning Nelson can get inside position. There's a shallow safety to that side, so he must be dealt with. #Packers
