Kiper

Talking hairstyle/self-proclaimed "draft guru" Mel Kiper Jr. gave none of the teams an A- or above in his rankings of the NFL Draft, so the fact that he tagged the Eagles with a "B"? I'm pretty pleased.



Here's what he had to say, from the four letter network.com:

I really like defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley playing next to Mike Patterson on the defensive line. Tackle Winston Justice and Georgia guard Max Jean-Gilles will solidify the left side of the offensive line for years to come. Chris Gocong was a solid pick, whether they play him at defensive end or linebacker, and Jeremy Bloom will be a great pick once he shakes off the rust from being away from the game. Still, Bloom can help the Eagles in the return game this season.

And this, from CNNSI, on Jazz Hands:

Michael Irvin
Here's how ESPN can improve its draft coverage next year: Send Irvin to an isolated studio in Nova Scotia where he won't overwhelm the broadcast. It's all style and finger-wagging and going against convention: Irvin is tired of hearing that defense wins championships. He's sick of the grading process. Blah, blah, blah.

7:52 AM... that seems kind of late given your recent posts and given that you went to bed at 7:00 PM last night. Or were you blogging while "billing?" Does your boss know?

Whether you choose to believe it or not, mystery smartass, I do not bill for time spent on here, responding to the likes of you.

Dave, now I am chirping in. After being accused of posting to your site, I have had to investigate.

These posts that you attribute to me, apparently, are not mine. While hard to believe, I do have better things to do than harass you at home (no matter how hard to believe that is).

I dont even know who Justin Henry is, though, he sounds like Red Foreman.
