Jerry looked like the pacemaker skipped a couple of beats.
I don't see how that's possible. The phone call I am talking about was during our pick. Pitt picked before us.
Something else to consider when you are watching that war cam and also watching ESPN or NFLN draft...Both ESPN and NFLN were behind showing the picks many many times.
CBSSports draft tracker was putting the picks up well before some of the announcements were being shown on TV...Well at least well before the ESPN one but I think also the NFLN one as people in chat that were watching both did not know the picks.
Here is an example.
On the TV it was showing the Pick was in for the Chicago Bears (did not announce which pick yet) while on CBS Sports they already showed the Bears Pick, already had the steelers set as Pick is In and had the Cowboys started on the clock.
So when watching the war cam and you see them on the phone while the tv is showing a pick or two before us...it does not mean that is in real time so it might be hard to gauge what is going on concerning if they are upset about a pick being taken before them and so on.
This is exactly right. They also tried to get up to the Rams spot but it was for Donald and that is who the Rams wanted.
Looked like Jerry's daughter was hitting on Garrett.
I think we came out of the last minute scrambling for defensive talent with an amazingly good alternative in Zack Martin. We'll get another chance to rectify our defensive shortcomings tonite. Just keep your fingers crossed for the smart decisions to continue.
I'm speculating here, but I think Cleveland probably offered the same deal to move to 13 as they gave the Eagles at 22--their third round pick--and the Cowboys refused it. The warroom's disappointment could stem from not being offered Cleveland's second.
At any rate, I am very glad they stayed put and picked Martin. Had they traded back, I don't know if they would have picked Darqueze Dennard or reached for Dee Ford, Ealy, or (heaven forbid) Marcus Smith. But I know I would much rather have Martin in the first than any of those guys.
I think this is a GREAT pick, you can not complain about it! Plug him next to Tyron, and maybe next year throw him at RT. I wanted Barr, but Martin was very close 2nd, for me.
Its the annual Charlotte flirts with Garrett in the draft War room..... No wonder Garrett hasn't been fired.....he's got a secret weapon....the bosses daughter....LOL Ol Red is still a playmaker...
She's not too bad to look at.
I noticed Spaulding Smails was bothering McClay an awful lot.
Per Clarence Hill, that is what it was.
So what you guys are saying is Jason Garrett is the Triple H of the Dallas Cowboys... He's flirting with the Stephanie McMahon of Jerry Jones...
I thought that was kind of high for Shazier. And they're going to play him inside? Big difference from the days their ILB's were 250lbs.
yeah being excited about a pick is just SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO important
It actually looked the other way around, i.e. she was flirting with him.
Jerry was mad he couldn't trade down. We thought we had a deal with CLE until they changed their mind at the last minute. That is what gave Jerry the sour attitude.
Agree the TV feed was off. In many cases the pick showed up here on this blog before the announcement on TV. Kudos to the contributors to the Blog, and why I like this spot over others.
Almost spit up my drink right there.
I think that's it.
Smart (and lucky) move in the end by Cleveland but a gamble as someone else could have nabbed Manziel between 16 and 22.
My guess is that we wanted a 2nd or (more likely) a 3rd and 4th from Cleveland for them to go up to 16.
So by giving Philly only the 3rd rounder to go to 22, Cleveland saved a 4th rounder in the process.
