NFL Europe sked

Postby eastcoaster » Wed Mar 15, 2006 11:06 am

NFL Europe games begin this weekend on NFL Network and continue through May. Hey - at least it's football, and some of it is live:

Something to while away the time in the off-season.

My initial reaction is bah, who cares.... but didn't some current NFL players get developed in NFL Europe?

I really don't think there were that many that made the transition, but maybe the top few guys will end up playing here next year. Who are the top prospects in that league if there are any?

Look out for Drew Henson... the guy who started over Tom Brady at Michigan and could have been a first overall draft pick if he didn't decide to go to baseball for three years.

He's been shaky in his two years back since, but apparently he's been doing alright in training camp, and he's slotted to start for Rhein Fire this season.

Here's hoping he does well. Oh, and for anyone who gives a damn, he has a NFL Europe brief he writes and publishes on http://dallascowboys.com every week or so.

Right. Kurt Warner, Jake Delhommes, Brad Johnson - to name three.

I just read that Dallas Cowboys backup Drew Henson is headed there for this season, along with some others:

Jared Allen, Gibram Hamdan, Lang Campbell, B.J. Symons, Kliff Kingsbury, Tory Woodbury, Craig Ochs, Jeff Otis, Brock Berlin, James Kilian, Reggie Robertson, Brian Wrobel, Bryson Spinner, Chad Mortensen and Timmy Chang.

The linkis here. I'm going to go look at a few other teams to see who they're allocating there for this spring season.

Guess we all now know how much throwing for over 4,000 yrds in college is worth.

I watch a few games here and there. Try to pick out who will make it in the NFL. Walter Payton's son played there last year and made the Titans' squade. Everybody made a big stink when he ran for a TD....then he fell off the face of the earth again.

Flutie's a CFL product, isn't he?

Thanks for putting this on the cafe. Nice to know there are options to NASCAR and College Hoops!
