The start of baseball brings football a bit closer...

Well baseball season has begun, which in my football-oriented mind means that football season is that much closer to being here, and I for one an psyched. Another thing I'm psyched about this week is that my husband is defending his dissertation tomorrow - soon I can call him Doc Holladay. Six years of hard work are about to be rewarded. Can't wait.

Onto to today's football linkage:

  • Want a little light reading before Draft Day arrives? Then don't turn to FootballGuys' 624-page beastly Rookie Scouting Portfolio (for a free 75-page sample, check out this link); but if you want something informative and detailed from one of my favorite fantasy football writers, check out Matt Waldman's aforementioned tome.
  • Ahh, to have a mature quarterback. Jason Campbell and Dan Snyder met at the end of last week for a pow-wow on the same day that the Skins brought Byron Leftwich in for a workout. Though the Washington Post points out it's unlikely that Leftwich will leave Pittsburgh to be Campbell's backup, which is what he would be should he sign.
  • Looking for a new drafting strategy for the 2009 season? Or maybe just a refresher? Take a look at the Bruno Boys' four-part series designed to give you a leg up come August.
  • If you're really not the sort to keep an eye on the wire for any football news (my fave is still Rotoworld's NFL Headlines), then consider scoping out FFToolbox's 2009 NFL Player Movement guide to keep you updated on all the latest.
  • Now that Plax has been released by the Giants, The Hazean investigates the impact on the Giants' passing game and Eli Manning's value.
  • And finally, since I can't seem to get a post up without mentioning Jay Cutler's name - see MMQB's How Jay Cutler-Kyle Orton trade went down.

Thanks for the linkage. Glad to see you going strong through the offseason, football cannot get here soon enough!

Thanks again for all your hard work in the off-season. =o)

For what it's worth, a Miami Herald story paraphrases sources at the Dolphins stating that Chad Henne likely to become their starting QB sometime in 2009 or at the latest in the 2010. The Dolphins are looking to replace the efficient Chad Pennington. A battle of the Chad's in Miami at the QB spot.
