  1. Lets just get this out there and not sugar coat it. Absurd pick for a 1-15 team to take a RB in the first round. They own the 33rd pick so they will get a great value but a 1st round RB? The reason Robinson blew up is because the Jags took Leonard Fournette with the 4th pick of the 2017 draft and didn't resign him. Lesson NOT-learned. I can see Pittsburgh taking Najee since they are a 11-5 playoff team in dire need of a RB and don't have a 1,000 yard rusher on the team but Jacksonville? You don't build a team from the RB position. Come on, this was a terrible TERRIBL
  2. 42. David Lindley - She Took Off My Romeos Probably many have not heard of this artist but he was HUGE at my radio station. Everyone played him and I choose this as my pet song, I loved this tune.
  3. I really like the trade-up and pick of QB Justin Fields for Chicago.
  4. Andrew Brandt video His thoughts on Aaron Rodgers. Don't expect any movement this year.
  5. 43. The Who - Don't Let Go Of The Coat Love The Who 1981 Face Dances era as they were the first BIG concert I ever went to. Folsom Field in Boulder Colorado. John Cougar Mellencamp opened to boos, then Jethro Tull came on to massive cheers before the Goodyear Blip sailed over to showers of fire works and Townshend's patented high arm twist and Daltry throwing the microphone about twenty five feet into the air and deftly catching it like he'd done numerous times before, smile. Awesome concert. Under rated and great tune here.
  6. Selected editing to insinuate you had 5 bar mitzvahs for the cheap joke. Good thing you didn't have 5 Brit milahs. Ooof 🚑
  7. Doesn't mean teams are not looking to trade-up in this draft. Makes sense for teams to move-up if they only have so-many draftable grades given out this year, they would want to move-up to land one of those players. So many opted-out or had shortened seasons so not as much film but 'some' players had more tape. Their have already been 4 trades involving first round picks next year, six picks have been traded for this year's draft so their have already been a fair amount dealt.
  8. Pete Thamel @PeteThamel How will tonight go? According to a source in the thicket of the top of the draft: "There are so many teams trying to trade up right now. I think you're going to see a record amount of trades."
  9. 44. Jefferson Starship - Find Your Way Back Grace was back after a three year absence. Not sure if she's the one on the cover in black leather but if sexy was the intent, I don't think it succeeded. Woof
  10. 45. The Pretenders - Cuban Slide Light hearted romp into a Bo Diddly beat by a very-tight band at its peak. James Honeyman-Scott shreds, stacks, and burns on this tune.
  11. 46. Joe Jackson - Cancer Joe tapped into the zeitgeist of the time when it seemed like weekly reports were coming out of things that were causing cancer. Odd we don't seem to get those weekly media reports any longer. Almost like the media is controlled to keep fear mongering till the ridiculous dire warning loose effect, lol. Love this tune.
  12. Back to MJ's tune. Supposed to be about the media feeding on him. He was quoted before the song came out saying. "They eat off you, you're a vegetable." And Michael is over looked for what he contributed musically. He is credited with creating a unique sound mix called 'bathroom stomping' where he combined multiple drum machines and synthesizers. Think Phil Spector's 'Wall Of Sound'. Then their was a bit of controversy over the chorus since Michael stole the 'Mama se mama sah ma mah moo sah' from Mana Dibango's 1972 song Funky Soul Makossa. They reached an out of cou
  13. Gawd I hope that didn't reach Billboard top-100. Maybe top 1,000,000, maybe, lol.
  14. They're talented Doc. Currently ranked 11th best roster in the NFL. LINK Lowest ranked QB offsets a very talented roster. They 'could' improve if a QB falls or if they move-up.
  15. Jimmy Donovan with former Browns FO and current NFL draft talking head Daniel Jeremiah. LINK Great listen. Jimmy and Daniel know and knew each other since Daniel was with the Browns. Jimmy gives him #### for the terrible draft Jeremiah 'helped' with, lol. Remember LB Beau Bell? After ribbing each other they go cover the overall draft leading up to talking Browns pick. Go to the 6:00 minute mark to hear what DJ says, pretty interesting. He talks 'moving out/down' Jimmy counters by discussing CB and DJ didn't realize how big a need CB was which I found very interesting.
  16. 47. Michael Jackson - Wanna Be Starting Something I think I can safely say the line: You're a vegetable ... Has only been used in this song in the entire history of top-100 songs. Pretty sure but haven't gone through em all.
  17. 48. Joe Jackson - A Slow Song One of many tunes from Night And Day that populate this list.
  18. The album was released in 82 as was the single in the UK so it wouldn't have made Tim's list and I also don't think it qualified for Andy's either. Its possible Andy had Stand Or Fall from the same album since it wasn't released as a single so he would/could have gone by the date the album was released which was October of 1982.
  19. 49. The Fixx - Red Skies Used to play this one up in the Colorado Mountains at the radio station. Very 80s tune.
  20. 51. Steve Winwood - Arc Of A Diver What I thought was a fresh new artist was a seasoned vet reinventing himself as a solo artist. The title track of a great album.
  21. Travis Wingfield@WingfieldNFL Daniel Jeremiah had a very interesting comment on the latest Move the Sticks pod. Said your WORST offensive lineman is more important than your BEST guy. Says more sacks are given up than earned.
  22. Tatoo You is under rated. They took tracks that they had let over from the 70s and that is why it sounds so different from most things in the early 80s. Its basically classic Stones but new and fresh at the time.
  23. 52. Tom Petty - A Woman In Love John Lennon was going to stop by the studio when they were recording the album and Tom was excited because he had never met him, he never would as Lennon was shot before the meeting happened. Always loved this tune and Benmont Tench the keyboardist for the Heartbreakers explains how their is a lot of 'open space' for air. Great explanation here. When we asked Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers keyboard player Benmont Tench about this song, he said: "I like the way the track breathes. There is a lot of space, there are a lot of places where there'
