  1. Long-time BOTH (Born of the Huddle) redraft leagues has one opening. This is a great league with an old-school set of rules. Cost is $50. Here is a basic rundown of the rules, for anybody who is interested. Please post here or send me a PM for more info. Top 6 make the playoffs. 4 division winners and 2 wild cards. There are four divisions of four, and divisions are determined randomly, as is draft order. Initial Pre-season waivers run is reverse of draft order. Every run thereafter is "worst to first" based on record/points. Roster/Starting Lineup 1 QB 2 RB 2 WR 1 TE 1 K 1 D/ST 5 Bench *No Flex 1 IR spot (must be out for the week) Scoring All TD's = 6 points Rushing Attempt = .2 points Rush Yard = .06 points Reception = .6 points Receiving Yard = .06 points Passing Yard = .03 points Int = -1 Fumbles Lost (-2) FGs 39 and under (3) 40-49 Yards (4) 50+ Yards (5) PATs Made (1) D/ST Scoring Sack (1) Interception (2) Fumble Recovery (2) Touchdown (6) Safety (2) Kickoff and Punt Return Touchdowns (6) Points Allowed 0 points (10) Points Allowed 1-6 points (7) Points Allowed 7-13 points (4) Points Allowed 14-20 points (1) Points Allowed 21+ points (0) All Other Touchdowns not covered by the above rules = 6 Points.
  2. DirecTV / NFL Sunday Ticket (2019)

    Been with them since 2001. I've had the Sunday Ticket every year, and probably paid for it (or a portion of it) only 2-3 times. In the past, it was relatively easy to just call, threaten to leave, and get it for free. RedZone included. Now, not so much. Last year, I got it for $75, which wasn't bad. I'd pay double that, if that was my only complaint with them. I'm so tired of having to haggle for discounts every 6/12 months, only to later glance at a bill and notice that the discounts have expired (and monthly bill goes from <$100/month to $150-175/month). I hate the fact that they treat brand new customers better than those of us who have been around for years (and AT&T has only made this worse). I'm seriously considering just canceling, and sticking with Netflix, Amazon, etc. for my TV viewing. For sports, I'll either go to a bar, listen on SiriusXM radio, etc. Heck, most of what I watch is football or golf, and with this latest fiasco with DirecTV not even carrying CBS in my area, I can't even do that. Final straw, I'm afraid. All of that said, I know that there would be things I'd miss. DirecTV has a great DVR setup, and for the most part, it's a user-friendly and convenient system. But, the billing and customer service has pushed me to the ledge. I'm somewhat afraid to take the plunge, but know that once I do, I'll be better off.
  3. Except for these women. NFL Draft Ruining Bachelorette Parties Personally, you couldn't pay me enough to attend one. I must be getting old.
  4. I don't see them. Unless I missed it several times, the safeties are omitted from that list/content. Just a heads up.
  5. Last year's schedule for the Vikings was, in my opinion, one of the toughest I can remember, in terms of who they played outside of the division. NO, SEA, PHI, NE, and LAR (and 4 of those 5 were on the road). This year's is MAYBE slightly easier (on paper, of course), but they still have road games against LAC, SEA (again), DAL, and KC. It's going to be critical that they take care of business at home early in the season, considering all of their divisional road games take place in the first 7 weeks. On the flipside, if they're still in the hunt, playing GB, DET, and CHI at home, all in the last month of the season, could be huge. Of course, I say all of that keeping in mind that this is the Vikings I'm talking about. They'll probably go out and lose to OAK by four touchdowns at home, then win in KC,.or something to that effect.
  6. Interested in trading Brown while you can still get something for him?

  8. Who else is 0-2?

    QB Manning, Griese RB K. Jones, Arrington, C. Brown, R. Williams, C. Benson, W. Green WR Driver, Houshmenzadeh, Wayne, B. Edwards K Stover DEF New England I was hoping that the Wayne/Manning combo might carry me the first few weeks until one of the rookie RB's or Williams became a solid option. Wasn't counting on Manning/Wayne AND my #1 back Jones giving me virtually nothing. Still not out of it, though. I am thinking of making 3-4 roster moves this week, including dropping Stover and Green and picking up Dayne, Shipp, or Blaylock and a kicker. My starting RB situation this week is brutal with Jones on a bye and Arrington and Brown seeing limited to no playing time.
  9. When do they bench Dante?

    Better question - When do they fire Tice?

  13. Bears RB's

    I agree. Unfortunately (for Benson owners), I'm not sure either team can score more than 20 points, so I can't see it being "out of reach" in either team's favor. Because of this, I think you will see Jones get the most touches, with Benson getting 10-12.
