  1. Need help: Most competitive league settings?

    Maybe so although I get a lot of edge by stocking my bench full of guys with potential or key handcuffs so I doubt would work in my favor
  2. Derrick Henry Keeper Advice

    Personally I dont like guys who need to learn how to run hard like Henry needed to relearn. I doubt he has the fire to be productive much past his contract year, which is this coming year. I dont know squat about dynasty drafts but my personal 2c.
  3. Antonio Brown just won't shut up!

    While OBJ is also a head case I believe he's probably better than AB, at least at the present moment. AB seems to be actually slightly crazy. OBJ and Mayfield may get along great. Mayfield is slightly nutty/highly competitive too, and more talented than Eli, so it may work out just fine.
  4. Antonio Brown just won't shut up!

    I don't think using logic really works. He's just crazy and lacks self awareness. Saying he has no ego yet has an enormous ego.
  5. Antonio Brown to the Raiders

    Yeah have fun with that Gruden.
  6. What round will you draft Josh Gordon?

    Lol if you type the word *weed* it comes up "Josh Gordon". I was wondering wtf was going on when I was typing Josh Gordon smoked Josh Gordon
  7. What round will you draft Josh Gordon?

    Josh likes a cool draft as well as getting high on life. He said he drank or smoked before every Browns game. Id assume college was similar. he seems like a decent enough guy just can't say clean. Everybody says good things about the guy. I don't think they should test for MJ in the NFL anyway. But maybe the owners still want it as a measure of responsibility or something.
  8. What round will you draft Josh Gordon?

    Yep, Josh Gordon was my single worst draft pick last year. Never again, at least not until a very late round. He's 28 years old now and has been a heavy drug user for well over a decade. I think it's foolish to start drafting him too high.
  9. I love the AAF

    I could certainly get behind cheaper ticket prices and a faster more streamlined game but the loyalties run deep in NFL, and football teams require so many players. It wouldn't seem like something easily run on the cheap. The D league being proposed by Tom Brady's agent and McCaffrey is an interesting one. For prospects too young to go to the NFL or don't want to go to college. And it's only 4 teams and based in CA only. I could see that being useful. Here's a good list with a short description of previous and current NFL leagues https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/from-aaf-to-xfl-to-pacific-pro-football-and-more-heres-a-guide-to-all-the-new-non-nfl-football-leagues/amp/
  10. I love the AAF

    I don't know how other people feel but the NFL offseason is kind of interesting in its own right. I can sort of pay attention to what's going on without investing a lot of time. In the meantime you have March Madness, baseball, basketball, hockey playoffs. Obviously there's a lot of intense football fans that miss NFL football but I just don't know that there's enough room for very profitable League after the NFL season. These guys think there is and more power to them.
  11. I love the AAF

    Lol making players pay for their flights home. The Carolina Hurricanes owner lost 70 million. The XFL lost another 70 million in 2001 and even McMahon called it a total disaster. I'm sure these guys have ways of squeaking out money in different ways, publicity, etc, but it just seems puzzling. Now McMahon is going to try for the XFL again next year and says he's willing to put hundreds of millions into it. So I was quickly proven wrong that this would dissuade people from trying again. I don't totally get it.
  12. I love the AAF

    I would think this would reduce the appetite for another professional football league for a long time. Maybe ever. How many times are they going to try?
  13. C.J. Anderson signs with the Lions

    This is a good point. CJ is a great handcuff next year to hold on to.
  14. Is this April Fools? I hope not.

    Worth sharing again https://www.google.com/amp/s/sports.theonion.com/giants-consider-drafting-quarterback-to-mentor-eli-mann-1833237416/amp
  15. What round will you draft Josh Gordon?

    Not before 12
