Let's get rolling, everyone.
Could Tyler Wilson be a possible 1st pick?
Sure, nothing changes in the draft process like the QB position. Wilson has a good draft season, he cna soar up the list. It's very fluid.
Do you think the Chiefs will take the Seattle approach and get a FA quarterback, draft a quarterback and then keep Ricky Stanzi. Then have a 3-way competition?
I don't see Stanzi in the mix unless something dramatically changes.
Being that Greg Jennings and Charles Woodson's futures with the team is questionable at the moment, could you see a possible reunion with the two with Reggie McKenzie, McKenzie drafted Jennings and Woodson was drafted by the Raiders which both is a need for the Raiders, What you think?
I doubt that would be the direction Oakland will go this year. The Raiders need a lot of pieces and they need to spread out limited resources. Reggie McKenzie has already indicated big-ticket players likely won't be coming to the Raiders this offseason.
What Are The Chances Of Revis Landing In Denver? Perfect Fit Right?
Well, there are lot of perfect fits for a player like Revis. but I do think Denver could be an intriguing landing spot for Revis if he is dealt.
Do you think the Chiefs can pick up a veteran QB like Flynn?
Yeah, I think he has to be on the top of the list of possibilities. He should be available and John Dorsey has a history with him.
As a raider fan I'm praying for a trade down in order to stockpile picks. With no 'franchise qbs' at the top, which prospects could help us create demand for other clubs to trade up?
Might be tough because there are so many top defensive players. Teams may not feel the need to make a huge trade up.
Since Kapernick is doing so well for the Niners, do you think they will be looking to deal Smith to a team?
For sure. He'll likley be on the list in KC as well.
Do you see Denver possibly pursuing Glenn Dorsey? I feel like he was drafted out of position and he belongs in a 4-3 and could really help the broncos and allow them to draft other places of need.
He could be a decent role guy. Nothing defnsive-changing, though.
With the apparent switch on offensive line philosophy do you see Briesel's job in jeopardy in Oakland? Are there any power scheme OL available in FA?
There's no doubnt Brisiel is more of a zone-blocking guy. He could be kept because Oakland has so many other needs, but he is a much better fit for the old scheme.
Will the KC brass pass on Geno, trade the pick, or pick up the LT from T Tech?
Star L. from Utah also a possibility.
Hey BW, Do you think the Seahawks will eventually cut Matt Flynn if they don't have a partner to trade with?
They will try to trade him first, but the belief around the league is they will be forced to cut him.
BW, what do you think of the Broncos taking Eddie Lacy at 28?
I think that depends on how good he looks in the draft season. I think John Elway wil go with the ebst player available wiht a lean on defense.
With Brandon Carr leaving and the Stanford Routt experiment failing miserably, does it make sense for the Chiefs to talk to the Jets about Revis? Any guesses on asking price for an elite corner on a 1 year deal with a bum knee?
Any team that trades for Revis will likely give him a new deal. I think KC could be on the list for Revis. It doesn't have a ton of needs and grabbing player like Revis would instnatly make this a terrriifc defense. Remember, the Chiefs' new defnsive cocoridntor is Bob Sutton, who has been with Revis his entire NFl career, including being his coordinotr in Revis' first two seasons. Sutton would likely over to start his KC career with Revis.
No way Rahim Moore returns as the starter in Denver, right?
That is the plan. Yes, Moore goes down in history or that gaffe, but he had a good season. Denver has to help he can get over that play. It worked for Kyle Williams in San Francisco, and Denver hopes Moore can get over it and resume a promising career as well.
Do you think Pryor will have a legitimate chance to challenge Palmer for the starting job? He looked a lot better in the season finale then the way he is reportedly practicing and will Palmer being 33 and really not playing his best do you think they will allow him to backup pryor next season?
I think Palmer is the starter in Oakland's mind right now, but if pryor has a gret offseason, camp and preseason, he can steal this job.
Could the Raiders look at Gregg Williams for their LB coach? He's obviously a very good 4-3 guy, but is he being black balled as the fall guy from "bounty-gate"...
Very interesting, sir. Dennis Allen coached for Williams, so there is a connection. Who knows if Williams would take a slide down to a position coach, but if he feels like that is his best way back, you never know. I'm not sure where Allen would be with bringing someone so heavily invovled in the scandal. But I like the way you think.
Oakland has a lot of weapons on offense (even though they didn't score much this year) do you think there draft class should be Defensive heavy with maybe a OL pick in there?
Their greatest needs are on defense, but they also need mroe help on OL, RB and maybe TE if Meyrs goes.
Which is more likely Alex Smith or Darrelle Revis a Raider in 2013?
so you have dt star as my chiefs #1 pick, but we are running a 3-4 D and got d. poe, so why star? we need de to replace dorsey or a cb!!!
That would be Star. He'd be a nasty 3-4 DE. versatile guy.
If you are wondering why I haven't answered many San Diego questions ... cause I haven;t seen many.
If a Branden Albert deal doesn't work out, do you think the Chiefs try to make it work with Stephenson or go for someone like Joeckel in the draft? (I'd rather they try to keep Albert somehow and fill a different need)
I think it could be Joeckel in that scenario. But I think the Cheifs need and will find a way to keep Albert.
Do you think there is a chance the Raiders would trade a premium pick in either this draft or next years draft for Darelle Revis?
Too many other needs.
On a scale of A-F, what would you give the Broncos draft last year? I say F.
Well, they got a starting D-lineman on the No. 2 defense in the NFL ... glad you were never my teacher. Wouldn't have gotten out of the first grade.
How concerned is the Denver brass about PFM's cold weather performance. Should Elway convert Sports Authority into a retractable dome?
Brother, undertake a major construction project a t ahigh cost for a guy who is going to be 37?The Broncos didn't lose that game because Manning was chilly.
Will the Raiders Resign Brandon Meyers Or Let him go as they do every year with tight ends(zach miller,kevin boss)?
I think they need to. he is an exciting young player, but Oakland has a lot to do with not a lot of money to do it. it will be a challenge.
Do you see the Broncos making a move to draft Manti teo?
If he starts to drop, maybe. Something to watch.
I've seen you write and have heard other say that Olson is a power blocking guy. But I've found several articles which say he leans toward ZBS with power mixed in here and there. Can you clarify for me what makes you so confident the ZBS is out?
Well, a lot fo OCs mix in a lot of diffrent things. But I've been assured by the Raiders that they are moving away from the ZBS. Don't worry.
dont bother reading this u wont answer, twilson m flyn or geno who u like
Why you so down, bro?If I don't answer your questions, it's cause I don't see them. I get hundreds. It isn't perosnal.To answer your question: Flynn as long as it's nto at a high price. Less risk.
Do you think Alex Smith with get a look in SD as a backup if he can't find a starting slot?
There's enough starting gigs out there and so few draft options, I think he gets a chance to start somewhere.
Hey Bill,Can a guy that shrunk from 325 to 308 really be taken seriously as an NFL QB? He seems he is more interested in Purple Drank, Fatback and O Rings then being a serious NFL QB. Don't you think that ship has sailed or sunk?
Life is all about comebacks, but that dude has a long, long way to go.
do you think sd should keep phillips, or replace him in draft/FA?
I think he gets a chance to test the market. Chargers may go younger there.
Why is Pryor seen as such a project when guys like Kaepernick, Wilson, etc are able to step right in and play? Pryor was very productive in college, why is he so far behind those other guys?
Just that he's been inconsistent and he is green. But he'll get his chance.
What will the Raiders do with Michael Huff?
They wnat to mvoe him abck to safety if possible.
Why did Dennis Allen make Sparano the assistant head coach, instead of Greg Olsen or Jason Tarver?
It's just a title, nothing too serious. Former head coaches oftne get it.
Do we really see Fox moving a pick to acquire Revis? Sure he moved future picks for current picks plenty in Carolina, but don't recall him making any moves like that.
Players like Darrelle Revis change history. I'd say he'd be worth the No. 28 pick, wouldn't you?
Flynn has proven nothing! I would much rather see Alex Smith in KC, at least there has been a somewhat extended track record of success there. Flynn is Cassel Jr.!!!!!
Perhaps he is. Dorsey has a hisotry with him. There are no sure things this year. Every QB this year comes with his share of risks.
Do you think that David Ausberry is really worth the hype?
Not so far. Give im a little more time.
Jarvis jones to Oakland?
If he is available, he has to be considered a real possibility.
DeAngelo Williams to reunite with Fox in Denver?
It;s always been considered a possibility. If he becomes available, it could happen.
With the Chiefs sending six players to the Pro Bowl including three of their four LBs, the D is obviously strong. If KC fixes the QB situation, how big of a rebound do you see Reid and the Chiefs making in 2013? .500 or better maybe?
Yep, it all revolves around the QB. Get a good one and the Chiefs are on their way to good times.
Is it time to give up on the Julious Thomas project? Antonio Gates he is not. And it looks like Virgil Green is a better blocker, and has better hands at an already deep position. Is he even worth a roster spot at this point?
The key word is project. Takes time. But I agree, he has to amke a move this season.
Are the Chargers looking to bring back Danario Alexander and Micheal Spurlock ? And with all these coaches coming in to try and fix Rivers will it work ?? with this years draft are they going to be drafting a highly rated rb to replace Matthews?
Alexander will be a restricted FA and spurlock is an UFA, With Bisaccia on likley on his way to Dallas, Spurlcok could end up there. Spurlock and Bisaccia are tight and that's the reason why he came to San Diego in the first place.
Do you think Denver will keep DJ Williams?
I'd guess no.
What are the Chargers to do with Jared Gathier? Any LT's in the draft they could be targeting? any Chance they go after Ryan Clady if the Broncos don't franchise him?
Gaither is all but gone. LT is the Chargers' greatest need and it will be addressed. I don't see Clady being available.
When do you think the Chiefs call it quits on Jonathan Baldwin? He a training camp stud, real game dud. He doesn't even flash potential like Bowe does, if the Chiefs sign Bowe long term, do we still go after a WR early?
Nah, Baldwin gets a clean slate with Reid.
Great hour. Talk to you next week.
