  1. Deeper Sleepers

    I blame it all on Seattle's non-existent offensive line over the past years...but supposedly it's better this season. Guess we'll see...
  2. Deeper Sleepers

    From Rotoworld: ESPN Seahawks reporter Brady Henderson considers Chris Carson "the favorite" to enter the season as Seattle's starting running back. By all accounts, Carson has been running circles around the rest of the running backs in Seahawks camp. He looks "all the way back" from last season's ankle/leg injury and has added 10 pounds of muscle to his frame. Seattle used a first-round pick on Penny, and he's obviously going to have a role, but Carson appears to be the favorite for touches right now. Penny is currently being drafted in the fourth round of fantasy drafts, while Carson can he had in the 11th round.
  3. Who has been here since the 90s?

    Hey...one of those is mine!
  4. Who has been here since the 90s?

    Last I heard Carl took the billions he got from the USA Today Sports 'acquisition' and bought an island out in the south Pacific...probably very nice.
  5. Who has been here since the 90s?

    Think I've been on here since around 1998...

    Sucker... K...Penny is in you win, and Carson is in I win, or if you want to do most touches the 1st game I'd be in for that as well. Cheers!

    Already paid for my subscription so can't really go there...how about a 6-pack of beer from a local brewery or a bottle from a distillery or winery? Bet would have to be that either Penny or Carson take the 1st snap on offense in the 1st game of the regular season...if either one gets hurt before that game or neither of them are in there then no bet.
  8. Deeper Sleepers

    Carson looks fairly electric running the ball, got that wiggle and wow factor about him. Watch some of his college tape when you get a chance. Not sure how long any of them will last though...there's a reason all the Seattle RBs get hurt after a few games, as the offensive line is non-existent.
  9. Deeper Sleepers

    Why is that insane?...did you even watch Carson run last year? What do you want to bet?
  10. Deeper Sleepers

    Penny will start the season as the back-up to Carson...bank it. Problem is no matter who starts that o-line is a sieve and no one is going to last too long trying to run thru it. Another year of revolving backs...
  11. Deeper Sleepers

    Chris Carson going that late just seems like a crime...although with what constitutes the Seattle offensive line I foresee the same thing happening to the Seahawk's RBs as last year. 2-3 games and then pop! Moncrief, Enunwa, and Butt all seem like good value that late. Will be watching Coutee in preseason as I think he mostly mans the slot in Houston this season...that should pay huge dividends as long as Watson stays healthy. I think he's a better athlete than Fuller, but JMHO. Will also be watching Gathers, Schultz and Jarwin to see who, if any, can emerge as the primary receiving TE in Dallas.
  12. GBP backfield

    Jones is a much more diversive RB, more dynamic then Williams will ever be. Jamaal is a plodder, move the chains type. JMHO...
  13. GBP backfield

    IDK...Williams averaged about 3.8 yards a carry while Jones averaged about 5.5, although Jamaal did have almost twice as many carries. Williams averaged over 10 yards a reception and scored a few times, so possibly it's the other way around and he's the 3rd down back and Jones is in on first and second.
  14. GBP backfield

    Jones was arrested last year just days before he took over the lead back position, so I doubt GB has any qualms about starting him again this season...he by far IMO looked the best out of any of their RBs and Ty Montgomery.
  15. Have we had any rookie drafts yet?

    Dynasty rookie draft (can draft vet FA) that started Monday, May 7th...half point per reception, 14 team league.

  16. The 2018 NFL Draft

    Manning hasn't been 'fine' for a couple of years now...not sure how this helps him stop making all the bad decisions...
  17. Browns fans: Read this long rumor!

    lol...well, it is Kevin Costner, but Jennifer Garner is nice to look at. I think the Browns come out of this looking pretty good no matter which way they decide to go...they have both Hyde and Taylor so they could bypass both those positions and go defense.
  18. Browns fans: Read this long rumor!

    Seriously...as a Browns fan you don't think getting Barkley and Allen in this draft would be a great thing? Perhaps try watching Draft Day, I hear that ends pretty good for Cleveland.
  19. Browns fans: Read this long rumor!

    I'd probably be a tad bit bitter if I was in your shoes as well...
  20. Browns fans: Read this long rumor!

    Probably just my bias against seeing Barkley in a Giants uniform kicking in...
  21. Browns fans: Read this long rumor!

    Hyde is decent but he just fits more of a COP and 3rd down RB to me...he is still yet to have a 1K yard rushing season and he's been in the league for 4-5 years. Barkley would sell tickets and could be an every-down monster for a few years to come. IDK...I just can't really see taking Allen #1 if they are really that enamored with him, could easily get him at #4.
  22. Browns fans: Read this long rumor!

    Conventional wisdom would seem to dictate taking Barkley first overall, then grab Allen at #4 which would be a major coup IMHO...although conventional wisdom seems to elude the Browns year-after-year. So guessing they will probably mess this up somehow. But here's to 'hope' if you are a Cleveland fan...cheers!
  23. Dez Bryant cut

    Texas is soooooo big, there's room for 2, and then some...
  24. Dez Bryant cut

    Yes...got him in the draft. Also have Zeke and Dak so losing one of my triplets. And yeah, I know, total homerism, but I've won that 14 team dynasty league the last 2 years in a row.
  25. Dez Bryant cut

    Please, please, please let him go to the Packers or Saints...
