NFLN Doesn't Discriminate

by: Michael Steffes

The Patriots took long snapper Jake Ingram one spot after where the Seahawks took Tyler Schmitt last year.

It was nice to see the NFLN take a break from their excessive praise of the NE organization to mention that drafting a long snapper was equally as absurd this year as when the Hawks did it last year.

Clearly the Hawks and Pats feel differently, and they have enough wins over the last half decade between them to justify their actions.

The NFLN guys also took a minute to praise the Seahawks' draft, saying that if Deon Butler develops they have had a "heck of a draft." They think very highly of Curry and Unger and expect great things from both. And then at the end, they remembered we also picked up a first in next year's draft.

It has been a good weekend. However, the dividends might not be fully realized until this weekend next year. END
