Luke Links: Combine style


Many try, most fail, to play like the Horse Shoes.

 In an effort to get back into the groove of posting weekly links, I give you this week's Luke Links:

  • Mocking the Draft has a new player rankings page up. For DTs, Ron Brace is ranked 4th. 
  • Coltplay landed a really nice interview with Colts linebacker Jordan Senn.
  • 18 to 88 thinks that the Kelvin Hayden signing actually opens the door for Marvin Harrison to return.
  • Adam Shefter disagrees.
  • Pro Football Weekly is working hard from the Scouting Combine at the Luke (or, the Lube; whichever nickname you prefer).
  • The Chargers franchised their best running back yesterday. Now, they need to work on re-structuring their other running back: LaDainian Tomlinson.
  • Larry Coyer talks to PhilB about why they had to blitz so much in Denver.
  • Proof that "Fanhouse" has gone to the schmucks. Chris Burke posted an article calling the franchise tag "unfair," citing Julius Peppers situation. Um, Chris, what the hell is so unfair about being paid the average of the top 5 defensive ends in football and having all of that money guaranteed? Trying to make your readers feel sympathy for a guy who is upset he will make millions in guaranteed money next year is bad sports writing defined.
  • Edgerrin James says playing for the Colts again is an option he likes.
  • Albert Haynesworth will likely not return to the Tennessee Titans. Haynesworth, who will become the highest paid defensive player in football when someone offers him a real contract, was only offered 4 years and $36 million, which is (of course) a slap in the face for the best player the Titans had.
  • Football Outsiders Twitters from the Combine.
  • Cold Hard Schmucks from New England thinks the Combine is full of sh*t. They also think Kurt Warner is better than Peyton Manning, the sky is green, the moon is made of cheese, and people care what they think about football.
  • And finally, Bill Polian said the NFL Competition Committee is indeed discussing possible overtime rules changes. For the conspiracy idiots out there, calm down. The topic came up at a meeting. Other topics that likely came up were "Where should we order lunch from?" and "Hey Fisher, where's the mullet?"
