    Not saying anything about Payton, but Brees, Colston, Bush and a healthy Deuce had a lot more to do with their turnaround than he did. A weak division helps too. The Phins are largely unchanged except for an aging QB, a very questionable first round WR choice, and a first time HC, and they face much stiffer competition.
  7. Michael Vick's Property Raided again

    Fair enough...but I'm not a Colts fan, and my impression of him before the big miss was probably similiar to most casual observers -- the most accurate kicker in the NFL. Granted he played his home games in a dome which didn't hurt, plus the rest of the division is in the south as opposed to, say, Soldier Field, but still, very impressive. Then he misses the most clutch kick of his career (at home, in the dome), and now he's done. It's always fascinating when someone falls that far. Come to think of it, he's not unlike Michael Vick...
  8. Dolphins

    That is not the consensus on him but that would be about right in my opinion, maybe slightly overvalued. If he stays healthy, I think he can be serviceable. He's not going to touch his KC numbers at his age with that supporting cast. A reasonable hope is that Green stays on the field and is able to move the ball and keep defenses from stacking the box. That is the only way Brown is worth his ADP. LT was a superstar since high school, and is a unique talent to say the least. Brown is no LT. People talk about Cameron like his play calling made LT the player he is today. In his first year of coaching a team that has been very bad lately, that plays in a very good division, and faces a daunting schedule, Cameron better be Vince Lombardi. Even the best coaches usually need 2-3 years at the very least to turn a team around, though there are notable exceptions. When I pick in those two rounds, I also want a high floor, and the less risk, the better. I want the guy to offer a solid baseline number, with upside for a lot more. I can see Brown being a complete bust this year and no one would be particularly surprised (look no further than '06). I think a breakout year could happen, I just wouldn't want to gamble my season on it. My comments are more aimed at the top 10 RB ranking I've seen of him. If he's going 2.04 in drafts, I can't argue with that TOO much.

    You have to consider that Green just turned 37 and is not exacly a lock to set the AFC on fire. He is coming off a severe concussion and walking into a new offense. He has a serviceable WR in Chambers and a good pass catching RB in Brown but not much else to get excited about. The offensive line is worrisome, to say the least, and that cannot be ignored. And even if Green manages to stay upright, there is a second round pick waiting in the wings who they hope will be their future franchise QB. So they better win games. What happens if they start off 1-7 and the fans and media start screaming for a QB change -- this season is lost, give the kid some playing time. So there are legit reasons to fear that Green doesn't play 16 games, which could all but kill Brown's production. He's not going to be a #1 caliber RB without a good passing game to keep defenders honest, and simply to move the ball to give him some scoring chances. Is Brown good enough to carry the entire offense? He wasn't last year. Granted this is all worst-case scenario stuff, but I still say that the conditions will have to be almost perfect for Brown to be worth a first round selection, and there is no precedent with Brown to be overly confident. If all this wasn't bad enough, take a look at the Dolphins' schedule, particularly late in the year. They face a lot of tough run defenses, especially in FF playoff weeks. They play the NFC east, and throw in the Steelers (week 11) and Ravens (week 15 ) Four games against the Jets and Pats (week 16 ) will be tough too. All in all, an uphill climb for Brown to be a stud RB and worthy of a 1st round pick.
  10. Are the Pats getting sentimental?

    I was surprised when I saw this too. My guess is he's there for veteran leadership and depth in the secondary?
  11. Michael Vick's Property Raided again

    You know who I've been thinking about? Mike Vanderjagt. Guy was the NFL's most accurate kicker, now seems to have fallen off the face of the earth. That one miss negated everything positive he did in his entire career, and now that is all anyone will remember. Man, I don't shoot heroin, but I would if I was that guy.
  12. Keeper League Commissioners

    In my league we announce keepers on the day of the draft, in order of last year's finish. Then in reverse order, each guy selects his draft position. Last year's turd can pick any slot from 1-12, then #11 picks from what is left, etc. It works out pretty well.

    No, but one was named Valtrex.
  14. Michael Vick's Property Raided again

    I'm still trying to figure this one out. My neighbor bought a pit bull pup at around 6 months of age. He has 2 young kids, which would be enough for me to avoid the breed altogether. But he defended the choice, saying it's not the dog, it's the breeder and the owner. Then he tells me he thinks the dog was beaten because it flinches when he raises his hand up to pet her. So he encouraged me, and anyone else around to come over and pet her, to help "socialize" the dog. At first the dog loved me and I would often go over and pet her. She is now around 15 months old and I don't like going near her. One time she growled and looked like she was about to snap at me, and often she looks a little tentative when I approach, like she can't decide if she wants to be nice or go for the jugular. At this point she probably senses fear in me, but honestly every dog I've been around has loved me and I think this one is just a rotten apple. I have this sense of impending dread that this guy's little daughter is going to be rushed to the hospital one day because the dog snapped and decided to bite her face off. How a parent of young kids could bring a dog like that into the house, knowing their history, just boggles my mind.
