NFL Round-Up

April 28, 2022

The top story right now around the NFL is the re-signing of RB, Melvin Gordon, with the Denver Broncos. Gordon, who racked up over 1,000 yards on the ground and 10 touchdowns last season, will agree to a new deal with Denver.

The NFL Draft will begin tomorrow night, April 28, 2022, in Las Vegas. The first round will begin at 8 o’clock. The 2022 NFL Draft will continue with rounds 2-7 on Friday and Saturday. The Jacksonville Jaguars have the #1 pick. The New York Giants have the 5th and 7th pick overall and plan on taking the best available talent on the board, although rumors suggest Evan Neal, an offensive tackle out of Alabama, and CB Ahmad Gardner from Cincinnati.

Pittsburgh will get the 52nd and 84th overall selection when they make their selections in rounds two and three with the 20th pick.

The Oakland Raiders traded their first and second round picks to Green Bay for wide receiver Davante Adams. They’ll make their first selection in round three with number 86 overall.

I Didn’t Know

When I was hard at work in the Journalism program at William Paterson University, I would sometimes take short breaks, walk to the local 7Eleven, and buy a copy of the Star Ledger. The Star Ledger, now that was a newspaper.

When I moved to Pennsylvania I bought the Morning Call, and I was like what is this, anyway…….

I would sit in my car and thumb through the paper. I played football at the time so the Sports Section was most important, especially on Mondays after the NFL played on Sunday.

“Thank God for the Sports Section, it’s the only thing that’s real,” that’s what I used to say.

Real. What did I mean by real back then because at that time (2000-2003), there was not a doubt in my mind that the Middle East and Muslim terrorists were responsible for 911, and that was almost twenty years before President Trump began calling out the mainstream media?

Real. What did mean by real?

Ten years later it came to me.

New York Giants 19 Washington Redskins 10.

This is a fact, and you cannot debate it. It doesn’t matter how much you hate either team, and it doesn’t matter how much you inject your poisonous personal opinions (PPO’s) into the article itself; at then end of it all, you have to accept the New York Giants as the winner because of the score.

Case closed.

Now, if we can just keep out all the political over and undertones and propaganda, we might get our sport back.

Have a blessed day.
