I'm here. Let's go.

Mike Wallace out of Pittsburgh is a nice productive receiver and, in the slot, there's no one better than Wes Welker. But if I'm Jerry Jones, I don't spend my money there. You can find WRs in the draft. You can't find many OL who walk right in and play. He's got to find another OG or OT, and he could use a DT. Maybe Henry Melton, who might be a good fit. I could see adding a safety, too, maybe Buffalo's Jairus Byrd if you don't think Church will be recovered by training camp.

I don't know about the offense, because they do come and go, and the read option can be a little brutal if your QB isn't big enough to take the pounding. But I think the era of the mobile QB is here. Even though Flacco isn't as mobile as Kaepernick, he can still get out of the pocket a little bit. A mobile QB just presents you with so many more options, no pun intended. He doesn't have to be a genius deciphering defenses. And if you're OL is no good, he helps a lot. Like Romo.

There's no question that Ware is on the downside of his career, so I don't think he'd draw as much in return as you'd like. You're better off just riding him out now. He might be much better in a 4-3, where he doesn't have any pass coverage responsibilities. Anthony Spencer could be much better in that role, too, if the Cowboys decide he isn't too small to play DE.

I've had two jobs in my life: Loading fertilizer and selling shoes. Sportswriting is not a job.

Didn't hear but read it. I believe that's accurate. The Kardashians may object to the analogy, though.

Because sooner or later they have to see if Craig Gentry and Leonys Martin can play. They've committed a fair chunk of change to Martin. Some in the organization still love him; others aren't sure. He's not very instinctive and still very raw. But he has much more power potential than Bourne, even if he's not close to his class as a fielder. The Rangers added Elvis to the club in 2009, I think, and Moreland in 2010. But the last two years, they've not brought up anyone outside pitchers. They've got to start finding out if these guys can play. Now's as good a time as any. Having said that, they don't have a replacement for Cruz's power in right if he goes down for 50 games. That's a lot to ask of Mike Olt.

Jerry loves the splashy pick. I believe it's one of the reasons he doesn't like to draft QBs. Generally speaking, they cost you more than other picks, and they're not going to play right away. Why draft someone to sit on the bench, he figures. He needs to get over that kind of thinking.

Anybody but Dirk is fine with me. At this point, I'd have to think that Marion, Carter and Mayo were the most likely candidates.

What conferences have been doing in scheduling is forgetting the idea of a round robin. Certain teams in the conference you play every year; others, every other year. The only reason to have big conferences is to expand footprints for TV purposes, thus driving up revenue. It also leads to speculation of four super-conferences, thus eliminating the have-nots altogether. Still a distinct possibility, in my opinion.
