First and 10: Getting chippy about blue chips

Did you have any issues with Michael Lombardi‘s blue-chip and red-chip rankings of the best players at each position? If you did, you weren’t alone. Check out this heated debate from Thursday night’s edition of “NFL Total Access,” in which Heath Evans and Antwaan Randle El attack Lombardi for ranking Philip Rivers over the likes of Drew Brees and Peyton Manning. It’s a good thing Lombardi wasn’t in the same studio, because it could have gotten ugly!

Here’s what else is on tap for Friday:

  • The New York Giants and Jets moved up the start time of Saturday’s preseason game by five hours because of concerns over the threat of Hurricane Irene. That game can be seen live on NFL Network (2 p.m. ET) — and Giants offensive tackle David Diehl will stop by “NFL Total Access” tonight to talk about it. How does he feel about Rex Ryan saying the Jets are the best team in town? Are the Giants pumped to face old pal Plaxico Burress? Diehl will have the scoop.
  • Miami Dolphins cornerback Sean Smith calls he and counterpart Vontae Davis the best cornerback tandem in the NFL, which might, of course, surprise the New York Jets’ Dardelle Revis and Antonio Cromartie.
