Still crazy after all these years.

The National Football League draft is this weekend.

This annual event is so over-hyped that it has NFL rubes (like me) waking up at the crack of 11:00 am on a Saturday to tune in to the coverage on ESPN.

Have I told you how much I miss former Vikings coach Dennis Green? It wasn’t for his porous clock management or dismal playoff record. No, it was the nonsensical rhetoric spewed by ol’ Denny which made for some classic soundbites.

In this his third season as Arizona Cardinals head coach, Green was commenting today on where their #10 draft pick, USC quarterback Matt Leinart, will fit in the Cards’ QB rotation.

“Kurt Warner is coming in at number one and Leinart will battle John Navarre for the #2 spot. Whoever wins that will be #2 and the other guy will be #3.”

One thing is for certain: Denny has not lost his grasp on the obvious.
