Looks like the poll went pretty well yesterday, but the comments were even better. Lots of intelligent conversation, great suggestions, and no attacks on anybody's level of education, ancestry, or the like. That's exactly what we're shooting for here. So, kudos to all.
I did find the results quite interesting. When I posted the poll, I went in thinking that middle linebacker should be a primary focus of free agency. But by a slight plurality, you guys thought it was only moderately important. Of the 124 voters, 59 (47 percent) went with that option, while 55 (44 percent) thought it was an urgent matter. Only 10 voters, or eight percent, considered the position utterly unimportant.
Loved the discussion on the possibility of packaging Goff and some draft picks to get a guy like DeMeco Ryans, and the idea of drafting for someone like Penn State's Sean Lee in the second or third round. Shows a lot of insight out there.
We'll do a few more polls as free agency progresses and the draft draws near. In the meantime, keep reading.
It appears that 61-year-old former quarterbacks coach Chris Palmer is going to have quite a job in the UFL. Not only will he coach the Hartford Sentinels, but he's also going to be the team's general manager. Should be good experience for a guy who wants to get back to the upper rungs of NFL coaching.
The UFL formally introduced him today in a press conference in Hartford.
