Talked to someone in a front office yesterday and these interviews are doing real, but not irreversible damage.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) February 2, 2019
He’s a QB. Can’t lead if you’re not all in. He hasn’t decided yet, which is why the damage isn’t irreversible but the idea that he could bolt isn’t sitting well. https://t.co/74DigGS3Ci
I don't know..I think we are making a huge deal out of one awkward interview when the kid doesn't want to completely tip his hand. Now should he be doing them? No. Is this one spot that big of a deal to me? No. I could be wrong. #Redskins https://t.co/ni6PCKVmn8— Chris Russell (@Russellmania621) February 2, 2019
In the last three NFL drafts, there have been 11 quarterbacks drafted in the first round.— Goodberry (@JoeGoodberry) February 2, 2019
10 of those selections saw the team trade UP to pick that QB.
The only one who didn't require a trade up was Baker Mayfield with the first overall pick in 2018.
From Super Bowl Live: The #Eagles are expected to pick up the $20M option for QB Nick Foles, sources say. Not a surprise, but an important piece. What happens next will be intriguing. pic.twitter.com/FOpLeAhQu1— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) February 2, 2019

MVP voting was Mahomes in a landslide:— David Ely (@David_Ely) February 3, 2019
Mahomes -- 41

Redskins CB Champ Bailey going to Canton... well-deserved, of course. No-brainer selection. And part of Dan Snyder’s brilliant legacy— Hogs Haven (@HogsHaven) February 2, 2019
Favorite Ed Reed on-field anecdote: He intentionally played a certain coverage wrong multiple times early in the season because he knew Peyton Manning would watch it on tape. 10 weeks later, Manning ran a play, threw deep, and Reed sprinted across the field and picked it off.— Kevin Van Valkenburg (@KVanValkenburg) February 2, 2019
Further validating a pick many wondered about. https://t.co/MCaYOuqjYK— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) February 2, 2019
This needs to be retweeted before tonight's awards show. Baker>Barkleyhttps://t.co/ohp4RB9mgl— Brent Sobleski (@brentsobleski) February 2, 2019
Barkley got 25% more carries than another rookie in the NFL. He got 261 carries and rushed for 1,307 yards.— Roberto Shenanigans (@CLE_Shenanigans) February 3, 2019
If Chubb got 261 carries he would've rushed for 1,354 yards. Phillip Lindsay would've had 1,410 yards.
Barkley wasn't even the best rookie running back. #Giants suck it. https://t.co/eSB9LEd9Ve
Not impressed by Rob Gronkowski ... I'll make sure your opinion gets logged into the record. https://t.co/9JcuE91UHN— Tim Graham (@ByTimGraham) February 2, 2019

Most correctly predicted NFL Honors awards by a @HogsHaven contributor? This girl. (Also, there’s a lot that none of us saw coming this season. ♀️)— Jen (@VARedskinsFan) February 3, 2019

I watched Fort Dupont practice today.— Jason Rogers (@HeyJayJRogers) February 2, 2019
Black coaches, black trainers, black players.
And I realized I had never seen that before.
And that's on me, and the company I keep.
But imagine how powerful that image would have been for a little black boy or girl.
Names that trended on the Friday before the Super Bowl:— Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) February 2, 2019

I argue that America, unless you're a #Patriots or #Rams fan cares more about this top-five when it comes to the #SuperBowl tomorrow night:— Chris Russell (@Russellmania621) February 2, 2019
1. Pure Gambling
2. DFS/#SBLIII boxes, etc
3. @SuperBowl Food/Drinks
5. Halftime Show
Then you care about the game.
I once took a trip to Atlanta when I was younger with my grandma. At one point we got separated and my grandma got lost.— Roberto Shenanigans (@CLE_Shenanigans) February 2, 2019
Yada yada yada... I just left her there and flew home. I love my grandma but it just wasn't worth it.
Play-action passes have been a staple of Super Bowl strategy since the game began. But no one has ever embraced them quite like these Rams. I wrote about how Sean McVay’s offense was shaped by 50 years of play-action — and how he’s pushing its very limits. https://t.co/wxc77BIhfM— Robert Mays (@robertmays) February 1, 2019
Padres ownership is said to view Bryce Harper as a business/marketing opportunity and despite the positional need at 3B may now lean toward Harper over Machado (also Manny not want to go west). Question now is whether San Diego could outbid a team with stupid $ (plus others).— Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) February 2, 2019
Rickie Fowler on the Phoenix fans calling him "Big Dick Rick":— Jason Sobel (@JasonSobelTAN) February 2, 2019
"It's been going on for a few years now. It's really growing -- the name, I mean."
