  1. Link your dynasty draft here

    There were a handful of bad picks IMO. Okoye and Beck going in the first round were just awful as far as I'm concerned. Meachem going after Bowe, Jarrett and Ginn doesn't make sense either. Oh well, I wasn't expecting to have Pos available in the second round but I'll take it.
  2. Link your dynasty draft here

    Neither. I inherited this team.
  3. Link your dynasty draft here

    http://football12.myfantasyleague.com/2007...ns?L=35378&O=17 I'm the Redcliff Maple Leafs. 12 team IDP, heavier defensive scoring than usual
  4. Simply releasing O2 into the atmosphere will do absolutely nothing to counteract CO2. The only benefit will be the presence of more Oxygen. Trees and plants help the situation by actually using the CO2 with water and sunlight to produce sugars and oxygen (by-product of the plant food making process).
  5. Man, my students get dumber every year

    Did the guy just word-for-word copy or did he actually write his own paper based on the the information presented from one's of echeat's papers?
  6. Deuce McAllister

    I fail to see how Deuce cracks that lineup of RBs, unless you start 4 RBs I guess. A 1st round pick is a lot to spend on health insurance for your backs IMO.
  7. I can't tell if you were serious on not.
  8. Sorry to hear that. As said before though, do your best to keep busy, distract yourself. You know that you had zero fault in what happened but it is easy to lose self-confidence if all you do think about it. I know this is a standard answer to something like this but it always comes true. Something will come along and everything will turn out fine. Chin up and I wish you luck.
  9. Best Free League Software?

    Yahoo is probably the best, I would say.
  10. I have the 1.01, 1.02 and 1.03 picks in my dynasty draft giving me the any 3 players I want from this draft. Given this team, who would you pick? Culpepper Alex D Smith Roethlisberger Deangelo Williams LT Lamont Jordan Chambers Edwards Randy Moss Stallworth Sinorice Moss Mike Williams Passing TDs are 6, INTs are -1, the rest is pretty standard scoring. My defense is pretty solid so I probably won't need to devote alot of attention to it until much later in the draft. (I have 2 second round picks also) Lineups are as follows: 1) Offensive Players - Each team will have the option of playing the following offensive players. (PN – Punter) A)QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, WR, TE, K, KR, PN, OC B)QB, RB, WR, WR, WR, WR, TE, K, KR, PN, OC C)QB, RB, WR, WR, WR, WR, WR, K, KR, PN, OC D)QB, WR, WR, WR, WR, WR, TE, K, KR, PN, OC E)QB, WR, WR, WR, WR, TE, TE, K, KR, PN, OC With OC being an open slot (any position even QB) Do you pick AP, Lynch and Russell? or AP, Lynch and CJ2? What would you do?

    Hayes and Dansby as ILB you figure?

    We aren't all like that.
  13. Dynasty Rankings

    EXTREME SLEEPER - COULD EXPLODE!!! Sorry, for some reason I found that funny. BTW, +1. That's an awful list.
  14. Just curious, what is your IQ?

    +1 I've gotten anywhere from 110-145 depending on the test. Never taken a standardized test though.
  15. Dynasty rookie draft in progress

    I can't believe Kolb was picked almost a full round ahead of Stanton.
  16. Obviously, Draft will not overtake Witherspoon at MLB. Where does he go? Does he overtake Chillar's spot?

  18. Stacked with rookie picks

    I made a couple moves that I think will make this decision a no-brainer. 1) I cut Randy Moss; he was signed at $44 per year (more than LT) 2) Dealt away Shockey ($2) and Alex Smith ($5) and 2.10 of this year's rookie draft for Vince Young ($13.50 for 6 years) and Tony Gonzalez ($14 at 1 year). I'll be the first say that this was a blatent cap move and that Gonzalez is way overpaid but I was able to absorb the hit fairly easy and Young over Smith is a hugh upgrade. 3) Traded LaMont Jordan ($7) for Gary Brackett ($0.30); Easy move for me as Brackett outscored Jordan by about 100 points last year and it's $6.7 in cap relief. Jordan likely would have never left my bench and likely would've been cut. The result is this roster; Player YTD Pts Bye Salary Contract Culpepper, Daunte MIA QB - 8 $12.50 Roethlisberger, Ben PIT QB - 4 $5.00 3 Young, Vince TEN QB - 7 $13.50 6 Tomlinson, Ladainian SDC RB - 3 $42.00 1 Williams, DeAngelo CAR RB - 9 $13.00 5 Chambers, Chris MIA WR - 8 $0.30 1 Edwards, Braylon CLE WR - 6 $3.00 4 Moss, Sinorice NYG WR - 4 $1.50 4 Stallworth, Donte' NEP WR - 6 $10.50 Williams, Mike DET WR - 8 $4.00 3 Gonzalez, Tony KCC TE - 3 $14.00 Lewis, Marcedes JAC TE - 6 $3.50 3 Scheffler, Tony DEN TE - 4 $0.30 3 Scobee, Josh JAC PK - 6 $0.30 1 Maynard, Brad CHI PN - 7 $0.30 Plackemeier, Ryan SEA PN - 5 $2.25 Abraham, John ATL DE - 5 $10.25 Peppers, Julius CAR DE - 9 $3.00 1 Rice, Simeon TBB DE - 4 $6.00 Spicer, Paul JAC DE - 6 $0.30 Suggs, Terrell BAL DE - 7 $3.00 1 Udeze, Kenechi MIN DE - 6 $2.00 2 Vanden Bosch, Kyle TEN DE - 7 $9.25 Brackett, Gary IND LB - 6 $0.30 1 Carpenter, Bobby DAL LB - 3 $0.30 3 Dansby, Karlos ARI LB - 9 $1.00 2 Davis, Thomas CAR LB - 9 $2.00 3 Draft, Chris STL LB - 7 $0.30 1 Harris, Napoleon KCC LB - 3 $0.30 1 Harrison, James PIT LB - 4 $1.75 Johnson, Derrick O. KCC LB - 3 $3.00 4 Leber, Ben MIN LB - 6 $0.30 2 Thurman, Odell CIN LB - 5 $1.00 3 Ware, Demarcus DAL LB - 3 $3.00 4 Williams, DJ DEN LB - 4 $1.00 4 McGee, Terrence BUF CB - 8 $4.25 Allen, Jason MIA S - 8 $0.30 2 Archuleta, Adam WAS S - 8 $3.75 Demps, Will NYG S - 4 $0.30 1 Hope, Chris TEN S - 7 $0.30 1 Simpson, Ko BUF S - 8 $0.30 2 Taylor, Sean WAS S - 8 $3.00 2 And I have these draft picks; 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 2.6, 3.1. Turns out the Palmer, Brees and Manning owners were not interested in dealing at all. However, I did manage to get Young without forfeiting a 1st round pick.

  20. 2007 NHL Playoffs

    The loss of Dipietro will be too much for the Isles to overcome and Ryan Smyth will be forced to resign with my beloved Oilers (I wish.) Sabres in 5 Interesting series here, great offense versus great defense but we all know the answer to that question in the NHL. The Denis/Holmqvist duo will be the undoing of the Lightning despite them making a series of it. Devils in 6 Lehtonen will be the key here. He's untested and the Thrashers are not exactly a gritty team not to say that the Rangers can grind it out much better. I gotta give the edge to Rangers in an exciting series. Rangers in 7 I love the game that Pittsburgh plays. They attack you from every line in every situation. I think Fleury warrants his first round pick by stepping up big in this series and the Sens continue to choke in the playoffs. Penguins in 6

    This is what I believe. I think that there are multiple "futures" that God knows all of, but the choices we as humans make affect which course true time takes.
  22. Gas prices where you are

    99.6 CDN cents per liter here, that's about $3.27 USD/gallon.
  23. Stacked with rookie picks

    Figured I'd add more fuel to the fire here. Thanks for the responses so far. 14 of the top 30 scorers from last year were QBs (25th being Roethlisberger). Alex Smith was 55th overall. Here's the breakdown of my offensive players. LT 1st Overall Roethlisberger 25th Overall Alex Smith 55th Overall Braylon Edwards 248th Overall Stallworth 361st Overall Shockey 366th Overall Chambers 404th Overall D. Williams 444th Overall Lamont Jordan 611th Overall I'll be the first guy to say that I rely solely on quarterbacking, LT and my defense. This league is a salary cap league ($260 cap) and for as much as I rely on my defense/ST, I only have $57.50 tied up in cap room on my defense. Here are the rest of my significant signings. LT $42 1 year remaining (able to franchise tagged for $42 for next year if I wish) Culpepper $12.50 (able to be cut free of charge if he doesn't play) DeAngelo Williams $13 for 5 years Stallworth $10.50 (cannot cut free of charge) Mike Williams $4 for 3 years Braylon Edwards $3 for 4 years Roethlisberger $5 for 3 years Alex Smith $5 for 4 years Lamont Jordan $7 for 2 years (able to cut free of charge) I have about $95 in cap space left before the draft and if I keep all of my picks in the first and second round I will be devoting at least $60 to sign my rookies. The teams that have Brees, Palmer, McNabb, Manning, Bulger and Vick are all very hesitant to make a deal and been dragging their heels about negotiating. So far any deal that has been offered to me has been a clear no. Also, the best QBs available on the wire are Harrington and Warner, so that tells you something. Also, I should remind you that I can only start 3 RBs at the expense of my 2nd QB. And since rarely will a number 3 RB outscore a number 2 QB, this rarely happens. I have a good idea what I want to do, but I'm curious to hear other opinions. TIA
  24. Tournaments have a stronger competitve feel than cash games. I will agree, I generally win moreso in a cash game than a tourney but something about tournaments gets the adrenaline running for me.
  25. Fellow hockey fans and Bettman haters

    This summarizes my opinion pretty well.
