So his draft and out, I thought he would at least wait to the end of the season. Cheers Buddy, can't wait to see that baby ;)

The only real surprise is that both Buddy and Russ Brandon went nuts talking about how Buddy was in for the long haul post-draft... if they knew this was coming, why go overboard saying it isn't?  And if they didn't know, then what changed?

Wow! It felt like this was on the cards when he had that meeting with Russ just after Chan was fired but its still crazy to see! Fingers crossed he left us on a high note with this draft class!

He delivered the QB for which his legacy will be forever linked and rode off into the sunset. Cheers, Buddy. Hope that baby grows into a corn fed, molly whopping, beast. Only downside: no taped phone calls from a 75 year old GM that doesn't know how to use a phone.

Wow! I know this was expected but I am still a bit surprised. He seemed really active in the draft.

Nothing changed.  Since when are press conferences sworn to be the whole truth?

I liked the tweet that said "Nix drafts EJ, drops mic and walks off stage"
