if the Saints would pass on home town once in a lifetime type of player in Leonard Fournette I would DIE!! Mark Ingram hasn't shown to be all that great. We will likely have a new young QB in a few years and a BEAST back would do him wonders. Hell he may help Brees last a little longer in that he won't have to pass 100 times a game. Delvin Breaux, PJ Williams, DeVante Harris, Ken Crawley, Damian Swann, and Kyle Wilson will be plenty enough depth at corner. The 2 UDFA corners have played good considering they are undrafted. I think PJ was gonna have a good year before the devastating concussion. We are missing Sheldon Rankins right now and our top 3 corners. This D isn't as bad as most think, but the devastating injuries to all our corners have killed us, which would happen to every team out there. Plus I'm scared of Bama corners BIG TIME!! They seem to bust or take forever to produce!!
Yeah the Patriots are just clamoring for an interior offensive lineman. After all they have Thuney and Mason as starters at guard with Jonathan Cooper and Ted Karras as back-ups and have a very good center in David Andrews. What the Patriots need is an offensive tackle because Sebastian Vollmer ain't getting any younger and hasn't really been fully healthy the last two seasons. If there's a great prospect at OT at the end of the first round the Patriots should take him. You're out of your tree if you think the Patriot's greatest need is an interior offensive lineman.
Yet again, I will follow Walt's lead for this draft order outside the fact that the Bears land the top pick over the 49ers or Browns, I have more faith in Cutler running into wins before I do with Kessler or Gabbert. Also, there are still some players not in the system such as the Illini DEs, Justin Evans and Malik Hooker at safety. Until they are in I will mock without them.

--> Thanks for the hilarious e-mail. I got a kick out of it, though I'm not sure who "MARSHON LYNCH" is.
Sorry you lost money with the Jaguars, but even with the Pick of the Month loss, I still won this week (9-6-1, +$700).
Betting against teams with fired coaches works most of the time. Nothing works 100 percent, and this was one instance where it just failed. Jack Del Rio didn't prepare his team and had an awful game plan with Dirk Koetter. This is only the second Pick of the Month I've lost since '07. You can't win em all.
"BE A MAN YOU SPIKY HAIR DOUCHEBAG MOTHER F****R" Haha classic.
From Other Unhappy Emailers:
WALTER WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO GIVE SOME GOOD ADVICE FOR GAMES? I LOST A BOAT OF MONEY FOLLOWING YOUR HIGH UNIT PICKS... PICK OF THE MONTH HUH...LOL 8 UNITS. I HAVE A BETTER CHANCE FLIPPING A COIN. WALTER FOOTBALL SHOULD BE CALLED GO BROKE FOOTBALL.
I just want to tell you that your picks have really been bad lately. I dont mean to hate or anything but this is as bad a stretch as ive seen from you. If this was spanish i would make a joke about you being on crack or something but in english it would sound too bad.
--> All of this after a 9-6-1, +$700 week. Imagine what'll happen if I have a real losing week. My house might just get nuked.
From Chad M.:
You should be very, very careful of your name calling. It could easily come back to bite you in the a**. I wish you and your family the best of luck. You're good people.
--> Even though I don't know you, thanks for the advice and the good-luck wishes!
Fortunately, it's all satirical, so it doesn't really matter. If the creators of South Park can get away with berating celebrities and denouncing religions, I think I'll be OK with bashing Emmitt's grammar and Al Davis' thirst for virgin blood.
