Would you rather have a Super Bowl Ring or be inducted into the Hall of Fame?

jim kellyI want to know what you all think….

If you were or are a player in the NFL, would you rather have a Super Bowl Ring or be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Dan Marino would rather be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. 

Appearing at a Pro Football Hall of Fame function on Friday, Miami Dolphins legendary quarterback Dan Marino was asked whether he would trade the gold jacket that comes with Hall of Fame induction for a Super Bowl ring. Marino’s one-word answer: “No.”

I personally agree with Dan Marino.  I would love to say I won a Super Bowl, but to have your name inducted into a Shrine with the greatest players to ever play the game, I feel it is more important than winning a Super Bowl.  Many players win a Super Bowl and never have a successful career after winning the title.  I would not want to be remembered as a guy that just won a single game, than a player that paved the way for the others at my position. 

So here is the question, would you rather be known for winning a Super Bowl, or being inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame?

Former Bucs GM says whatever GM compared Jameis to Jamarcus Russell should not have a job

jameis winston to skip the DraftLast week there was a report that one GM stated Jameis Winston was the second coming of Jamarcus Russell, and that upset former Buccaneers general manager Mark Dominik. 

“I think it’s rude,” former Buccaneers G.M. Mark Dominik told Jorge Sedano of ESPN Radio, via JoeBucsFan.com.  “I think it’s completely off base to call him JaMarcus Russell.  I just don’t see the comparison.  Look, if you want to say one thing about Jameis [as a football player], the only thing I’d sit there and say is at the end of the season, he lost 17 pounds to go to the [Scouting] Combine.  I didn’t like that.  You now, because I’d like to think he’s playing as well as he can all the way through the bowl series and then getting himself ready for the Combine, instead of having to get himself in shape.  But from a football standpoint, from a football intelligence, from a competitor, from a leader, it ain’t close.  It’s embarrassing.  For my personal opinion, whatever G.M. said that, probably should not be a G.M., quite frankly.”

To be honest, I agree with Dominick, because I cannot see the comparison.

Three most overrated players in the entire 2015 NFL Draft all play the same position

Earlier today we put out a list that had five players we thought were the safest players of the draft. We have had many requests about who our biggest busts would be, but we wanted to do our three most overrated players in the draft. 

kevin white dolphinsKevin White – West Virginia – I have watched numerous games of Kevin White and I feel he will be the biggest bust in the 2015 NFL Draft.  This is just my opinion, but I am not seeing what everyone else is seeing.  I may be wrong, I have been wrong in the past, but I cannot see White being a star wide out.  He pushes off a lot, and will struggle in the NFL with the overall speed of the game. 

breshadBreshad Perriman – UCF – I do not care how fast you are, if you cannot catch how can you help a team win?  Perriman had a 12 percent drop rate his senior year, and was not that impressive.  I think a team is going to overdraft him based on his speed and they will suffer big time.  

dorsettPhilip Dorsett – Miami – Dorsett might be the toughest player to account for in space in this entire draft but I do not think he is worth a first round pick.  If you draft him in the 3rd to 5th round sure, I would say that is a smart move, but he is not a better player than Justin Hardy, Ty Montgomery or Dezmin Lewis who are projected as late round picks.

Jets GM says they will call all teams in front of them and gauge interest to move up

marcus mariota buccaneers

Marcus Mariota could be the target of the Jets….

The New York Jets might be interested in trading up, but for who?  Could the Jets be looking to land Marcus Mariota?  When their GM was asked about moving up in the draft, he said the Jets would in fact call every team in front of him to gauge interest. 

“We’re going to reach out to every team ahead of us and gauge the value of what they’re looking for in compensation to move up in the draft,” he said. “That doesn’t mean we’re actually trying to go up necessarily and get a player but you hear what the market value is basically, and then what you do is see what unfolds with the first few picks and who is available. We’ll have that discussion when we get to the draft — if we want to move up in the draft.

“Philosophically, I’m not opposed to moving up in the draft to get a player if you feel if a player is going to be an extremely good player. … I would personally want to (acquire more talent).”

Saints QB Drew Brees downplayed the trade talks from this off-season

drew breesWhen Drew Brees the New Orleans Saints starting quarterback talked to media the other day, he spoke about the trade rumors he heard.  He mentioned the Buccaneers and the Bills of two places where he heard he would be traded.  While he says he downplayed the situation, it makes you wonder if he could be traded next year. 

“I would have people come and, ‘So I hear you’re getting traded to Tampa,'” Brees said, via ESPN.com. “Oh, OK, great. And then the next week, it’s like, OK, who is it this week? Buffalo? Or wherever else. So I lost track. But again, I know that if things like that were taking place that I have the type of relationship with our team, our organization, that I would know about those things. So when I hear them second-hand or from a media outlet or whatever, I don’t really pay it much attention.”

Mark Sanchez says he was told Tebow was nothing more than Camp Arm for Eagles

Tim Tebow end Mariota Talks?Mark Sanchez was talking to CSN Philadelphia about the signing of Tim Tebow, but he exposed some information.  Sanchez said that Tebow was basically signed as a Camp Arm for the Philadelphia Eagles.

“He’s obviously a great guy, he works hard,” Sanchez said, via CSN Philadelphia. “And we needed another guy to throw while Sam’s (Bradford) still recovering. So that’s the reason (for the signing), at least as explained to me. We’re excited about the upcoming year and I think we have a great group.”

I am not sure that Matt Barkley can beat out Tebow, but we shall see the real intentions of Tebow in the near future.

Our Five safest picks in the 2015 NFL Draft; Who are yours?

The NFL Draft is all about picking the safest players who will contribute to your team for the next 10 to 12 years.  Well we have evaluated all the players and came up with our 5 safest players in the 2015 NFL Draft.  

amari cooper Amari Cooper – Alabama – This is a no brainer, Cooper is the best football player in this entire draft.  He is a the best wide out to enter the NFL draft since A.J. Green.  Cooper will be a Pro Bowler for many years to come. 

dukeDuke Johnson – Miami – I have been high on running backs in the past, but how are teams not talking about Duke Johnson?  Duke Johnson was the heart and soul of the Hurricanes offense and I could see him going to a team like the Colts and becoming a 1000 yard rusher in the first year.  Johnson is the real deal and is a very safe pick. 

Nick O’Leary – Florida State – Okay the guy is slow, who cares…. Nick O’Leary is the best tight end in this draft, and hnicke will end up being a Pro Bowler in the near future.  O’Leary has glue hands and catches everything thrown his way.  I could see Buffalo draft him and if they do, he will be their Rob Gronkowski for years. 

beckwithBen Beckwith – Mississippi State – This kid has been the underdog his entire career.  He walked onto Mississippi State, and by the time his senior year was over, Beckwith was an all-SEC selection.  He might not be the fast, pretty looking draft pick, but he will be starting for a team for years to come. 

rotheramMatt Rotheram – Pittsburgh – I talked to NFL scouts about Rotheram, because I feel he is being overlooked.  Analytically speaking, he was the highest rated offensive lineman in all of college football last season.  That is per one NFL team, which means one thing, the kid can play.  I love him, someone draft him.
