Taz - You need to focus on using more emoticons and baseless claims if you want this truckstick to comprehend.
Your post in his language would go something like this:
Mariotta is good but not sliced bread and bears need jam and peanut butter and ham and cheese. Cutler's money is a big number but blows so bears are in a rocking chair with Romo.
Other teams take QB's first and not many this year.
More QB's next year for bears. Bears win 11 games with no Cutler. Andrew Luck is a big hairy man who I love with all my pimples. Puberty is hard because of all the masturbation.
Check in on Bears drafting for defense to not suck.
The stink bait Winston is no good. Mariotta will cause a team to win 12 games next year because he is a great Hawaiian god man who I love like Luck.
Check in on things I said are all correct. Prove my wrongs. I like Dallas but hate them here.

Wow! Big news there Triple. I hope everything continues to go well for you and the kids and that it works out positively for you in the end.
It is already working out positively. Recovery has everything to do with your perspective. It wasn't my choice, but it is my choice to look forward instead of backward. Even so, I'm naming all of my fantasy teams this year the Audulterous Sluts or some variation thereof.

I debated hard on at my 3.09 pick whether to take WR Brandon Coleman (a coveted player for me and somewhat sleeper and tandem to my 1.03 Cooks pick) or take a needed QB for depth. Need ruled out and I went with QB Savage as a potential starter as early as late this season or perhaps next season.
Coleman was key though....He's the guy I wanted. Yet, I reasoned that if I didn't get Coleman.....another QB and WR I wanted were still out there and they would be consolation prizes I could live with.
I figured...oh well, I'll take the chance he'll fall to 3.14, my next pick.
3.10 Rhinos picks RB Storm Johnson.
3.11 Monkey picks RB Marion Grice
3.12 Phantom picks WR John Brown
3.13 Vanquish picks WR Shaq Evans
PERFECT. Not one of my circled picks went there. It was beautiful. Freakin Aye!!!!!!
Then something happened. As I was about to take my guy Coleman and complete my perfect draft.....Dave (Jaws't Win) jumps online......immediately chatting that he's up for trading some "late or future late picks for any of the next few picks.......
So my mind wandered. And I wavered off my "plan". I shot him a private chat comment about garnering his next pick plus my 4th and 5th rounders back for 2015.
I surmised that if I trade my pick, I could get his next pick this draft (4.05, just 8 picks later) and garner my late picks for next year. I rationalized that if I did this, my earlier trade with Jaws on moving up to the 1.03 pick (Cooks) would essentially just cost me a 2nd rounder next year and $8 DAD bucks. Pretty good deal, no?
I wasn't really thinking thru it though, because Dave had also made a private comment that he couldn't possibly use all of next year's picks....but I was already hooked on my idea. I probably could have gotten those picks without selling mine.
So I did the deal. After all, I still had my eye on 3 players. What are the chances they would all go in the next 8 picks???
3.14 JAWS picks QB Mettenberger.....no worries, that wasn't my target QB.
3.15 Berlin picks WR Norwood......nope, not either of my WR's.
3.16 Mud picks RB Taliaferro.....freakin awesome.
I've got 5 picks ahead of me....and 3 guys I would take, including my man WR Coleman are still there. And Monkey's picks have been off my radar for 3 days....I wasn't really worried about him.
Ever just know things aren't going to work out in a "moment"??????
4.01.....Casino drafts WR Huff......ouch. But no worries. He was my #2 of the 3 players.
4.02.....Vesper drafts QB Thomas....ouch......but it made sense, because he's got an aging Palmer on his roster about to retire. He was my #3 guy.
And then I text DieNasty (befitting name now) on whether he would "sell" that pick. But I had spent most of Monkey's DAD$ he gave me from trading my 1.08 pick who he later traded to Brentastic to move up to earlier 2nd and 3rd round picks.
I was worried, but I reasoned......really scoop, what are the chances Gamebreaker will take your guy????
I could almost hear his voice as time was running out when he texted "going, going...."
Even then, Gamebreaker still gave me a last shot to pull the trigger on a trade.... asking "Should I go ahead and pick?"
I balked....and alas, I just told him to pick away.
And the rest is history.....
Moral of the story.....TAKE YOUR GUY IF HE'S THERE AND YOU'RE UP!
****** My apologies for the long read.

I think I'd rather watch Pride and Prejudice with my wife than watch this week's Thursday Night Game. That alone should tell you how bad the matchup is.
Crappy TNF games are a good time to score wife points.
Wife: Isn't there football on tonight?
Me: Yes honey, but I'd rather spend the evening with you.
Wife: It must be a hondaty game and you're trying to score Wife points...humph
