BOSTON -- I've been trying to find reasons to justify the NFL pushing back the draft by a whopping three weeks next season, to Mother's Day weekend, May 15-17. I can't find one. I'm not alone.

Talked to one personnel czar last night on the phone. "Hate it. Absolutely hate it.'' Saw one owner at dinner last night, and he said (sarcastically) his GM "would just love this ... more time to obsess on final decisions he made a month ago."
The NFL will say if the change is made -- and it's all but done, and could be approved at the meetings here today -- it's because Radio City Music Hall isn't available next year on the last long weekend of April. I live in New York City. There are other venues. Lots of them. It's ridiculous to trot out that excuse. To say the league couldn't find another place at Madison Square Garden or the Barclays Center in Brooklyn or any one of a score of other options in New York is insulting to the intelligence of any thinking person. Say what it is: three more weeks to hype the most ridiculously overhyped event on the NFL calendar. Three more weeks for spring-programming-starved NFL Network to be relevant. And less time for NFL coaches, GMs, scouts and coaching staffs to be human beings and have family lives.

Worse than all of that it is 3 less weeks for the kids to study their new system.

I am sure it it all about hyping the NFL network.

beast (4h) : Yeah it's weird, if anything goes wrong the defense and OL get blamed, even if passing game fault
hardrocker950 (6h) : But I put it mostlt on the offense and poor playcalling
hardrocker950 (6h) : I have seen the defense take a lot of flak over the loss..
Cheesey (7h) : Rodgers would have hit open guys. The game plan wouldn't have killed us. Less 3 and outs, and maybe some scores.
beast (8h) : Rodgers wouldn't of abandon attepting to get the ball to Nelson and Adams.
Zero2Cool (8h) : Rodgers with that game plan would have came up short too.
beast (9h) : Yeah the Packers defense got wore out... being on the field so long. Giving longer breathers than 3&out would of helped a lot IMO.
Cheesey (10h) : There wouldn't have been so many 3 and outs, thus keeping our D off the field.
Cheesey (10h) : True, but with the low score we would have had a chance with Rodgers behind center.
Zero2Cool (10h) : Brees is a damn good QB, not giving Capers a pass, not even close.
Zero2Cool (10h) : Saints kicked Packers ass with Rodgers too.
Cheesey (11h) : That's just it. Rodgers needs a DEFENSE as well. And without him, there is NO chance.
beast (12h) : Just fire everyone! Rodgers can do it without them! Hell trade for the healthy Browns players!
Cheesey (14h) : Capers needs to GO. So do players that can't cut it.
Zero2Cool (14h) : Capers presser summed up? INjuries are why we suck. (shut up, coach and adapt)
Zero2Cool (14h) : nearly crapped myself hearing dom capers talk, forgot to close the tab after mccarthy haha
Zero2Cool (15h) : McCarthy said the communication was not good enough on defense yesterday. Injuries in secondary have complicated substitution patterns.
Zero2Cool (15h) : McCarthy again says "I believe in him"... sorry, BS, we saw how you believe in him yesterday.
Zero2Cool (15h) : @The_Green_Gold Highest graded players Kenny Clark & Blake Martinez. It wouldn't be possible to grade an entire defense
Porforis (15h) : Well, it WAS clean until someone 'shouted' in it...
Zero2Cool (15h) : QB Brett Hundley when targeting a WR against Saints: 6-for-15, 54 yards.
Zero2Cool (15h) : clean?
