The Rumors of Draft Day
There's nothing quite like getting to draw Mel Kiper and Chris Berman in the same cartoon. It's always a blast when you get faces made to caricature. I considered making Kiper's hair even higher . . . but the panel I draw in wasn't big enough.
On a serious note . . . I think what the rumors have done to affect Vince Young's draft status are nothing short of criminal.
And a quick opinion about the Broncos trading the No. 22 pick. It STINKS. After bilking Denver taxpayers into building the Broncos a new stadium, owner Pat Bowlen promised Broncos fans he was doing it to remain competitive. Instead, what fans have gotten is a lousy quarterback with no class or leadership skills who is incapable of ever leading the Broncos to a Super Bowl championship and a team of leftover Cleveland Browns castoffs that will never get past the first round. Now he trades away a pick that might have actually gotten the Broncos something worthwhile with the 22nd pick or as much more valuable trade bait when teams get a little antsy under the clock on draft day. At some point, Bowlen has to be held accountable for not holding up his end of the deal.
