NFL off season in full swing

We don't care where Apps go, as long as they goThe past couple of years, “App State” and the “NFL” have come together as often as “FBS move” and “rumors.”

Since the Combine, which featured the Quickness and DP doing their thangs, the internets have been quick to link one of the two with such-and-such team. For example

Appalachian State WR Brian Quick (6-3 1/2, 220) may have pushed himself into the second round with better-than-expected times of 4.48 and 4.53 in the 40 at the NFL combine. The Texans, who will address the position early in the draft, will have to consider Quick if they choose to focus their first-rounder on either a NT or OLB.

They “have to”. Got that? There’s a rule somewhere apparently. Who knew? Here’s a Colts blogger pining for Quick. Could he go there? /shrug

NFL draft guesses are like brackets. You’re just guessing, but it’s fun! ….. we guess.

Meanwhile look who is meeting with his hometown team.

The first one of the season will be Appalachian State running back Travaris Cadet, a Miami-Central High graduate who also played quarterback and receiver in college and will work out for the Dolphins this week.

While those three Apps audition for their first pro job, one App State great is looking for another.

Welcome to free agency, Superman.

“It’s kind of a fine line,” Lynch said of being excited about a new opportunity versus being apprehensive of where and when he would get such an opportunity. “You’re kind of anxious about not knowing where you belong.

“You think about all the coaches you have played for who are with other teams. You think about the teams you played well against. Or somebody might show up, and you don’t even know them. It’s kind of the luck of the draw.”

    wonder if we could somehow sneak Lynch back into the App secondary if he doesn't land anywhere?

    Man Luck and BQ in Indy could be a tandem to watch for years to come. With Indy just resigning Reggie Wayne, Quick could learn from one of the best receivers in league. I wouldn't mind seeing this happen.

    I still don't know why in the hell Indy released every single good player they've ever had

    Indy believes that if you "TEAR it down, then they will come"

    Addai and Clark are getting old, still good, but they are just wearing down. But that team was also built around Manning, since they are replacing him with Luck, they are going to do the same for Luck.
