    Does the NFL flip at the combine or the draft? Drafting 19th would be nice. Moving up just one spot in the draft has some nice value.

    I believe the coin flip is done at the combine.

    Heard on 610 radio driving home the coin flip would be on Friday at the Combine. They didn't give a time or anything.

    When will the decision on the Travis Johnson pick be known?

    Who gets to make the call on the coin toss?

    Do they flip a coin to decide who gets to make the call on the coin toss? Rock, Paper, Scissors?

    Maybe the owners or GM's can put pots on their heads and run at each other. Winner gets the 19th pick.

    I hope we lose. I'd really like to say that we picked in the twenties instead of the teens. Makes us look like a better team.

    The only bad thing about the Falcons choosing in front of us is the fact their needs are very similar to ours. It'll give them a chance to grab a player we were possibly targeting.

    In a standard Dollar coin or quarter flip ALWAYS choose Tails. This is becuase the weight of the heads side is slightly heavier than the Tails. When flipped in the air, there is a slight bias in which the heavier Heads side pulls the coin down.

    Now, we are talking fractional difference, but these are not fair coins, so I say, ALWAYS go tails.

    I don't know we're pretty loaded at DE. and Jamal Anderson....that there thingy is what they call a bust. and every round you wait on a DE is one more wart. Too little. Not explosive enough. a lot of people are unhappy with Barwin. But I thought he had a pretty good year. Looked to me like he was putting on good weight every week. Be patient with him and he just might turn into a beast.
