Joe Is At The Combine

February 20th, 2014

Hello from warm (yes, for February in central Indiana, warm, pushing 60!), rainy, windy, gloomy Indianapolis, where Joe is typing from Lucas Oil Stadium as the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine is about to start.

Things kick off with a bang with Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin talking at 9:45 a.m. Gee, wonder what he will be asked about?

Bucs coach Lovie Smith takes the podium (one of three here) at 1:15 p.m. and Bucs general manager Jason Licht arrives at 2.

Over the next four days, check back early and often. Joe will try to overwhelm you with news from Bucs people and, of course, the hundreds of players the NFL will trot out for us beer-swilling, free-food-scarfing scribes to pester.

Joe is looking forward to this and hopes you are too.

Caution: Reporters do not have access to the stuff on the field during the NFL’s glorified indoor track practice (well, very limited access). Readers who want to know times, etc., will see much more on the NFL Network than Joe will see at Lucas Oil Stadium.

    While you’re out there, see if you can find us a QB, preferably one who can set NFL/Team rookie records and win the NFL rookie QB of the year. Oh never mind.

    Welcome to Indy Joe, you picked a good time to visit now that 2/3 of the snow is gone.

    The only thing Joe is looking forward to is complaining about Glennon and dreaming of Johnny.

    It would be interesting to review 5 years of draft comment by Joe and see how those things turned out.

    Those that claim to have the answers, rarely do.

    Especially those in the Mike Glennon Mob.

    Why won’t Johnny boy throw at the combine? Needs his comfort zone at A&M.
