In truth, I'm still lost on this Twitter thing. I thought I had it figured out. Create an account, throw links up there, and we'd have some more friends. Then someone suggested to me that I install this thing called TweetDeck, which supposedly makes it all easier to manage. Little did I know I hundreds of personal messages that I didn't even know existed; which means everyone inside the Twitter world thinks I'm a jerk. So I'm going to try to do the Twitter a little better and maybe learn how to respond to something.

I asked Behind the Steel Curtain's Blitzburgh what he thought and concluded that it's a "good pick up for your team from a depth perspective."

Adam Caplan mocks that the Bengals will draft defensive end Brian Orakpo (sigh).
