  1. Who has been here since the 90s?

    LOL, great one! Screwed around to look: The old FF site Skippy, Big Country, and I had back in the day (whodoistart.com) resolves to the Edmunds Car website, to a 2018 Chevy Sonic. WTF? Why not just the homepage? If it were Skippy's Dart (or my Zed4) I'd understand some irony...
  2. Who has been here since the 90s?

    He got old. Health issues. Rarely posts much anymore, but gets out in the wilderness plenty. Nature picture fanatic.
  3. Who has been here since the 90s?

    At one point I had username #4, after Whitney, David, and Carl. (Pretty sure it was Carl the programmer/sys admin). Test drove the new messageboard with an all-nighter called "Riff's Place" that was hidden from the public while testing out the functionality. David, Muckrakers, and Skippy showed up to Riff's Place. Back in the day I had a free Huddle hat from David and a free Mr Football t-shirt from Dodds (before FBG).
  4. Who has been here since the 90s?

    Nearly everyone in our Usual Suspects league. Year 20 of the 14 team league. Riffraff, Skippy, Big Country, Roadrunner, Figme, Penguin, Willy, Pratts, MikeC, Beach Bum, CEO of the BFPK, Dope. No longer in the league, but still around: Merlin, Defector
  5. Rashaad Penny

    You know better than this lazy stat post. Penny played 1 ranked team (Stanford) and conference defenses that produced (1) first round defensive player and (0) second round defensive players in the NFL draft. Basically a bunch of guys that won't be playing pro ball. 1 of 29 defensive players drafted in those 2 rounds. Meanwhile Guice played against 10 ranked teams (won't list them all) and conference defenses that produced (4) first round defensive players and (3) second round defensive players in the 2018 NFL draft. 7 of 29 defensive players drafted in those 2 rounds. Back in 2016, Penny didn't beat out Pumphrey (drafted in the 4th round). Whilst Guice led the SEC in rushing while sharing time with Fournette (drafted in the 1st round). Don't really need to compare NFL level defensive opponents in 2017's draft too, do we?
  6. The 2018 NFL Draft

    M Bryant was technically the first WR acquired during the draft. Jordy is probably pissed.
  7. The 2018 NFL Draft

    Not a WR for Dallas. Whodathunkit?
  8. The 2018 NFL Draft

    Martavis Bryant to the Raiders for the 75th pick
  9. Dez Bryant cut

    Dez Bryant Cant Run Routes?
  10. Dez Bryant cut

    Maybe Dez can go to a team with David (yes David) Carr. Carr vs Dak in a friendly accuracy throwing competition.
  11. Joe Mixon owners rejoice!!!

    He was a free agent due to end of contract, not released.
  12. Joe Mixon owners rejoice!!!

    Bengals acquired LT Cordy Glenn from the Bills. The teams are swapping first-round picks (Cincinnati's No. 12, Buffalo's No. 21) as compensation. Cincinnati is also getting a fifth-round pick, Buffalo a sixth.
  13. Carson Palmer retiring

    Does this mean he has quit on 3 teams? Possibly an NFL record for a starting QB.
  14. NFL draft 2018

    The thing is - they can guarantee they get a QB with the 1st/4th pick, they cannot guarantee they can trade up from the second round ahead of anyone to get the last one on the board. Other teams may offer more for the same pick or move ahead of them. It could cost the second plus a future first depending on how high the final QB is sitting at. No ego involved, it's just not good odds or economics. They already control the draft board right now.
  15. NFL draft 2018

    Cleveland has 2 top 4 picks. In the NFL you take the one you want, not the one left on the board (as in fantasy football). They can still trade back up into the first for another player (to get that 5th year option) and have 3 firsts.
  16. NFL draft 2018

    Could be interesting on offense if they go QB of choice, then Barkley. More confidence the new GM will make smart choices.
  17. Your best 10th round or later target ever

    Trent Green went out; some bagger named Kurt Warner came in. Last round guy. Championship.
  18. Where do you watch the NFL on Sunday?

    Now that's a game day room! Just missing those black dip chips with some hot yellow cheese!
  19. Fournette inactive

    Team photo, plus team meeting, plus a therapy session (for an injured guy that's huge). But he did make time to attend LSU's game yesterday.
  20. Conley’s calf

    Achilles snapped
  21. Injuries Thread

    Pretty rough this year (lost 3 starters thus far). Not as rough as 2 years ago for me personally in a different league. Of 12 starting spots, I had 8 go on IR (year long and/or return). Just too many to overcome. Broke my chance for a 3-peat in that league. Came back for a 3 out of 4 last year though. Sometimes you have the good luck, sometimes you have the bad.
  22. The Chargers are cursed...

    Being 0-and-Koo ain't cool. Wonder who they bring in for tryouts.
  23. Adrian Peterson? ....trade possibility?

    Not at his contract price.
  24. Gates sets all-time TD record for TEs

    Nope... now he continues to put the record out of reach. Gronk is coming for it after all. Well done Mr Gates, well done!
  25. Week 2 Injury Thread

    Gronk walked off, maybe a back issue?
