Football Officials and Their Duties

Football officials... the men on the field we all love to hate and complain about. But without these keepers of the rules, a football game could not progress with any sort of structure or sanity.

Now what have the Saints done to improve the LB corp in 2009? Lets take a look. I have included a basic outline of each players role also. Remember Basic is the key word.

4-3 Outside Linebackers

Outside linebackers (4-3):

Will (weak side, or non-tight end side)

I just found this among my stuff. I thought I lost it.

1. Detroit Lions - Eugene Monroe, OT, Virginia


Lions say they are going another direction. Nobody believes them.. Look for the Lions to shop this pick big time. This pick will not be over priced either. Think players invoved in a trade. There is no clear cut (1. 2. or 3) BPA here. Perhaps the most NFL ready tackle in the draft,

A group of various fans representing various teams annually get together to get some drinking done and do a mock draft. Everyone debates each teams pick as clearly as the beer allows. Well this year is now. This year it took 2 days. The mock stops with the first sign of stupidity
