(AP Photo/Tony Gutierrez) Top Stories Arizona thus far has held private workouts or visits with North Carolina’s Mitchell Trubisky, Clemson’s Deshaun Watson, Texas Tech’s Mahomes, Notre Dame’s DeShone Kizer and California’s Davis Webb.This could be the list head coach Bruce Arians was referring to when when he said there were “maybe five or six” potential starting quarterbacks in this draft class.Mahomes leads all prospects with 11 of the 50 mock drafts tracked by Arizona Sports since April 1 having the Red Raider going to the Cardinals in the first round. Watson comes in tied for second with eight selections, while Kizer has three and Trubisky has two.The raw athlete from Texas Tech was described by ESPN’s Mel Kiper as “really the hot guy right now” earlier this week. He led the country in passing yards last season with 5,052 in the Red Raiders’ wide-open offense and accounted for 53 total touchdowns.Of course, the Cardinals still have potential needs at a litany of other positions, including wide receiver, linebacker and cornerback, and Arizona vice president of player personnel Terry McDonough recently advised against believing spring draft talk, but a quarterback may be tough to pass up if the team finds one it loves. Comments   Share   Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact With Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer entering his 14th season in the NFL at 37 years old, many around the Cardinals’ organization have alluded to finding a potential successor sooner rather than later.That’s why ESPN writer Dan Graziano believes Arizona’s “dream scenario” for the first round of Thursday’s NFL Draft would be to find a quarterback of the future.Arizona probably would have taken Paxton Lynch in the first round last year if he’d fallen to them, and they’re in position this year to find a guy they like and can groom behind Carson Palmer for a year or two. Let’s say it’s Patrick Mahomes — a project quarterback who’s going to need time before he’s ready. The Cardinals believe they have that time and need someone to follow Palmer whenever he’s done. The second key part of the Cardinals’ dream is that Palmer stays healthy and has one more really big year left in him. But that feels like the part of the dream that you’re just about to get to when you wake up to use the bathroom, and then by the time you get back to bed you can’t remember what you were dreaming about even though you know it was good and you were desperate to find out what was about to happen next. Hate that.The Cleveland Browns, New York Jets, Houston Texans and Pittsburgh Steelers’ dream scenarios also involve taking a quarterback in the first round.

By FFWPU Belgium Hugo Veracx The Peace Road 2016

first_imgBy FFWPU Belgium, Hugo VeracxThe Peace Road 2016 in Belgium started at Waterloo. Waterloo is well known as the place where the final battle between the French forces of Napoleon and the Anglo-led Allied forces took place in 1815. The Lion’s mound stands as memorial for this fierce battle which led to the end of the rule of Napoleon.We gathered at the home of Jean- Pierre Delens in Waterloo and from there we went to the ‘Lion’s mound’. The sky was grey and there was a little rain. At first we lost the road and after our picture at the Lion’s mound a brother (Kristof Tanghe) got a call that there was fire at his house. He urgently had to hurry to his house. Afterwards it seemed not that serious.But it was clear we had to break through something. The Second Gen. therefore started singing Holy Songs along the way as we headed to Bastogne, 165 km away. And yes, along the way the sky opened up and beautiful rays of sun were showing us God’s blessing. It became such a beautiful sunny afternoon.Our final destination was The Mardasson Memorial in Bastogne. The Mardasson Memorial is a monument honoring the memory of American soldiers wounded or killed during World War II’s Battle of the Bulge. We arrived just at the same time as our Brothers and Sisters of Luxembourg to whom we wanted to pass on the torch of the Peace Road.So, by driving 165 km we connected 2 memorial places which meant turning points in world history. They symbolize the victory of God’s side in the respective battles but also they remind us of the horror of war, expressing the hope of “war no more”. The peace road initiative expresses the same hope and wants to brings victory on God’s side. This was the intention of what we perhaps symbolically wanted to express by our event.We discovered that there was also a crypt under the Mardasson Memorial with three altars, one for Protestant, Catholic and Jewish services, expressing also the hope for unity of religions.We had a very nice “one family under God” experience with our brothers and sisters of Luxembourg with some ice cream and drink. We all returned with a good, happy feeling of having contributed a little bid in God’s providence by symbolically realizing True Father’s dream to have a Peace Road. Many thanks to all brothers and sisters who made such an effort to participate.For more pictures click herelast_img read more
