Brady has a theory on why NFL ratings are down


It appears that Tom Brady had a few things he wanted to get off his chest, because the Patriots quarterabck touched on a lot of topics during his interview at the Milken Institute Global Conference earlier this week.

For instance, we now know that Brady plans on playing at least two more years in NFL, but only because he has Gisele’s official approval. We also now know that Brady may or may not feel appreciated by Bill Belichick. We also know that Brady was and still is totally in the dark about why Malcolm Butler got benched in Super Bowl LII, which means that’s a mystery that will likely never be solved.

Thoughts: It’s been a shocking free-fall for Hurst, and Lions general manager Bob Quinn wouldn’t comment whether the former Michigan standout is on or off the Lions’ board due to health concerns. But you can make a strong case it’s worth exploring the risk on Day 3. Settle is a two-down lineman who could be a long-term nose tackle option, while Ford has an non-traditional body type (5-foot-11), but has shown the ability to produce despite those limitations.

Basically what we did, coming into the draft, we had a group of about five guys that we would be very happy with at 24 and we got our pick and three of those guys were there and it was a hard decision between Calvin Ridley and D.J. Moore, Hurney said. I think that the difference to us is, and we think they’re both excellent wide receivers, is just D.J. Moore gives us a little different skill set than we had.

Kyle Lauletta, QB, Richmond Grade: A. Quick-strike QB with quality accuracy on short/intermediate throws. Aggressive. Needs work downfield and against pressure. 109. Troy Apke, S, Penn State Grade: D+ Super athlete with size. Not a great football player yet. Slow to react to run plays and route concepts. 110. Nick Nelson, CB, Wisconsin Grade: B+ Sticky man CB. Nice ball skills. Average athleticism. Can be overly grabby. Helps to fill a need in secondary. 111. Brian Allen, C, Michigan State Grade: B- If he was bigger and a tick more athletic, he’d have gone on Day 2. Technician. Nice depth on aging OL. tigers_056-115x115
