    Twas the night before draft day and all through the house...

    It's Christmas in April! Did everyone remember to leave a hot dog and a mug of beer for Draft Claus tonight?

    He sees you when your 2-14, he knows when you're 8-8, he knows if your GM is good or bad...so trade back for goodness sake.

    That Matt Millen vid with the crawl on screen was priceless. Absolutely spot-on priceless.

    How does she find these things?

    Genius. ....absolute genius

    Thank you.

    Fans want the Rockem Sockem Robots, but sometimes the presents that aren't advertised the most on TV are the most fun.

    I think I pegged this draft pretty well (from the blog post).



    This explains the variations between what the big boards say the Texans should have done and what they do.

    As I recall, back in 2006, there were a bunch of people freaked out that the Texans took that Owen Daniels guy in the 4th round. (Wha? Injury history, not that great a TE, blah blah blah).

    If they have more needs than draft picks, they still have a lot of time to get guys for the upcoming season.

    ummm... don't go to the warroom threads with this type of logic.

    saw you at the Draft Party but you were busy talking with N.D., LoneStar, AnnaMegan, and some others...

    You should have come by to say hi! We are going to try bringing ND Kalu by the Platinum lot next season.

    I sat there - at the 610 remote setup - and took in all the "ambiance" for about an hour but I had to leave before we made our pick. the only msg board members I know by sight are you, Vinny, and Gary.
    Although, I think that was TedC and his dad sitting on the first row...
