  1. You know you're getting old when...........

    When there's an opening in the league you've been playing in for the last 25 years, and the newest team to the league was born 3 years after you started the league.
  2. Willie Parker Owners summit meeting

    I'm keeping him and going to ride him as long as I can!!! My #2 RB is Kevin Jones. Breakout year!! Easy rushing schedule!! Yada, Yada, Yada!!!!
  3. RB

    I know Jamal Lewis is in the AFC and he just got out of jail........... Don't think he broke out though!!
  4. Remind me to never ...

    Lets also not forget that DMD and WW are PAYING someone to host the servers for these boards, and they are still providing these boards all us schmucks at no charge!!! I'm still givin props to the boys!!!! That's value!!!!
  5. Jamal Lewis to split carries with C. Taylor

    All I can say is..............AAAAGGGGHHHHH!!!!!
  6. Collins deep ball and the Freak

    You've heard of the Randy Ratio haven't you!!!
  7. MNF?

    Didn't miss anything with Kimmel. He pretty much just slammed anyone who plays fantasy football.
  8. Dallas Clark info....

    Ben Hartsock is the 2nd TE in Indy. This is his sophmore year. Will he get a few catches if Clark sits.....Possibly. Is he viable.......probably not, there are probably better options on the waiver wire to pick up........
  9. Remind me to never ...

    It was a major pain in the A$$ last night! It would work for 5 minutes, then go down, then back up, then back down. They were like bad porn!!!
  10. Ok you Minnesota Homers out there.......and I apologize if someone's already posted this, but I couldn't find anything...... What's the deal with the WR situation up there??? Obviously Burleson is the #1 guy, but who's the real #2. Travis Taylor or Marcus Robinson?? (or Koren if and when he get's there??) I ask because I heard awhile ago that Travis Taylor was unseating M-Rob for the #2 spot, but haven't seen updates in awhile, and in both leagues I'm in Travis Taylor is available on the waiver line, and M-Rob is available in one. I wouldn't mind picking up the #2 guy as they could put up some decent #'s for my 3rd WR or a bye week filler...........but need some answers from the homers out there as to who it really is??? Thanks!!!!
  11. did i hear right

    Glad I picked him up!!!. Already had Suggs
  12. Larry Johnson Trade Value?

    There's no doubt that if Priest goes down, LJ's value skyrockets and is HUGH!!! Last year......In the last 6 weeks of the regular season, LJ was averaging 23 points per game.........In comparison, when Priest was playing the first 9 weeks of the year, he only averaged 20.9 points per game. (depending on your scoring system) I've seen LJ go in rounds 5 - 9. If you really want to trade him, the only value you'll get is trading with the Priest owner, and as a backup, you should be able to get a top 20 WR or some middle tier starting RB.
  13. Hey Guys..... I've got a huge week 3 bye issue with Jamal Lewis and Kevin Jones and I could use help at TE, WR, and Defense. Just so happens that one team has both Ahman Green and Cedric Bensen, and I've got his backups, and trying to work a trade with him that helps both!!! Here's my lineup (scoring below): QB: Bulger RB: Jamal Lewis, KJones, Suggs, Thomas Jones, Staley, & Davenport WR: Clayton, Drew Bennett, Bruce, Toomer, Ferguson TE: Wiggins Def: Colts His Lineup: QB: Culpepper, Brooks, Pennington RB: Ahman Green, Steven Jackson, CBensen, Anthony Thomas WR: Darrell Jackson, Driver, TJ Housh, Reggie Williams TE: Heap & Putz Def: Pittsburgh & Washington I'm thinking about offering KJones, TJones, & Davenport to him which would give him a top back he wants and the backups to both of his other RB's.... I'll be asking for Steven Jackson, Pittsburgh Defense, and either Aaron Brooks or Todd Heap. Am I giving up too much for the sake of a bye week? My thoughts are that I would still have Suggs & Staley as backups, and I'm also picking up William Green off waivers, which I should get. Does anyone have any thoughts as to whether or not they think this is fair or too lopsided one way or another??? I know the season hasn't even started yet, so maybe I'm just getting the "joneses" to get into FF mode by making a trade!!! Let me know your thoughts!!!
  14. Corey Simon a Colt?

    Agreed!! Was hoping they'd go after him because we've got line holes bigger than anyone in the league, and he definitely has the capability to plug the gaps.......but thought there was no way they would spend the cash!!! I can't wait to see the official statement on the Colts website announcing it!! Then I'll be a very very happy man!!!
  15. Corey Simon a Colt?

    SWEET!!!!! I got laughed at for taking the Colts D. in my draft. Granted, I'm a homer, but it was my last pick and I missed all the other defenses I was planning on taking. Makes me a happy man like Hook!!!!!
  16. Picking 3rd in 12 team league...

    I had the 4th pick this year in one league, and your right, makes it kind of difficult. Obviously if either Alexander or LT falls to you, you know who to take, but between Holmes, Edge, or Manning........I would still take Holmes (and I'm a Colt's Homer!!!). I just can't justify any QB that early. Even Peyton! Do I think Peyton will repeat last years performance?? If anyone can, he'll be the one to do it, but even still, taking a QB now will force you to go RB, RB with the next two picks unless you're willing to take a chance on some flier rookie RB. The two leagues I'm in, the two guys that took Peyton with the 3rd pick, they ended up with 2RB's like Ronnie Brown and Warrick Dunn, so if you're willing to live with that caliber of #2 RB, you can take him. I just personally couldn't! Granted, if you take Priest, you'll have to handcuff LJ to him. In one league, LJ went in the 5th round. In my other, I did take Priest with the 4th pick and I got lucky by not having to lock LJ up until the 8th round......
  17. Drafting #8....Who went 8 in your league?

    I'm in two leagues. #8 went Deuce McAllister in one and Dominick Davis in the other. However, with what's going on in the Big Easy, I would shy away from Deuce, and actually lean more towards picking DomDavis or even Jamal Lewis. While hurricane Katrina shouldn't have a long term effec on Deuce, it will still be tough to deal with in the short term since the Saints will litterally be living on the road for the first month to month and a half. Just my $0.02
  18. Saints Homers

    I've heard on the news that there are 30k - 40k people held up in the SuperDome. Hope it can withstand the wind and the water. I've heard that the dome itself was built up so it's higher than the city itself which is below sea level! Prayers are definitely with all those still there!!!!! Wow!! Editing my last post............ CNN just showed some pictures showing the damage to the roof of the Superdome taken by a Lt. in the National Guard who's helping coordinate the efforts there. There's a decent size hole in the dome. Looks like about the size of a car, which won't let in a ton of rain, but it's still coming in. Hopefully the wind doesn't start pulling more sections of the roof off!!!
  19. Ok just finished my first draft of the year, and I'm not reall happy with it, but want everyone else's thoughts. Had several key guys I was targeting get taken just ahead of me, and I was planning on taking some guys early, but this is what I ended up with.... Standard performance scoring, with passing TDs at 4pts......Start QB, 2RB's, 3WR's, TE, K, Def. QB: Bulger RB: Jamal Lewis, KJones, Suggs, TJones, Duce Staley, Najah, Chris Perry WR: Clayton, Drew Bennett, Issac Bruce, Ferguson, Toomer TE: Wiggins Def: Colts I'm ticked at myself for not paying attention to the fact that my first two picks in Lewis and KevJones both had Week 3 byes :doah: Thoughts???
  20. Thanks guys!! You're making me feel somewhat better about my draft!! I agree about the TOP 5 WR, and there's one guy in my league who drafted 5 RB's -- All with Week 7 byes!!! WOW!! We're already talking a potential trade, but his top 5 WR is Owens, so who knows..... Thanks!!
  21. Start 2 QB league and Warner #2

    How many teams are in your league??? I ask because Peyton & Lewis went in my first round, KJones & S Jackson went in our second round, and Javon & Nate went in our third round. And all of them before the 31st pick. If this is a 6 team league, I could see that, but if it's anything more than 6 teams, I think you are going to be in very very good shape for the year, even with Warner as your #2.
  22. Latest Injury Reports

    Got two drafts today and one tomorrow, and can't seem to find the latest team by team injury reports out there...... Anyone have any links???
  23. Rhino, what really amazes me is that you continue to improve upon this year after year after year!!!! I got your first one from back in 2002 and am still amazed by that one!! Once again, my many many thanks to you for all the hard work and effort!!! And what's fortunate is that all the guys in both the leagues I'm in are too cheap to even pay for access to the Huddle, so there's no way they are getting any info from me...... I thought about buying the draft lab software, but still like yours better!!! You should really really think about selling this every year! I'd buy it in a heart beat!!!!
  24. Has anyone really evaluated this DraftLab Software from the home page of the Huddle??? Thoughts, opinions........Do you even care?? DMD -- Your thoughts?? Seems like it might be pretty decent, but still not sure about using a software during my draft, especially if something goes haywire with it during the draft. Can't afford a screw up at that point!!! The last several years, I've used Rhino's annual projections / spreadsheet to help prepare for the draft and that tool has rocked!! Kudo's to Rhino again!!! I know it states that it will get all its draft analysis from The Huddle website, but is anyone aware as to whether or not additional stats can be downloaded into the tool. It might be pretty sweet if Rhino's annual projections could also be downloaded into this software. Let me know your thoughts, and any evaluations of the software.......I downloaded the demo, but it wasn't that easy to use, but that may have to do with the fact that it was a demo!!!!
