  1. Chiefs want 1st, 2nd, & 3rd rounders for LJ

    My whole attitude about players holding out changed dramatically after 2005. Javon Walker reported to camp without a new contract at the start of the season and then blew out his knee Week 1. Drew Brees was given the franchise tag and then busted up his shoulder in a meaningless game in Week 17. Fortunately, it worked out for both of them in the end, but I now have a much greater appreciation for where these guys are coming from as players. Yeah, a lot of these guys are taking home more money than most of us will ever see, but you can't blame a guy in any profession for not wanting to leave money on the table when he's at the top of his game.
  2. My first draft of the year II

    Gotta love Chambers at 7.06. I expect him to be a bargain pick in most drafts this season after being overvalued last year. I was a little surprised by the back to back QB selections as well, but every league rolls a little bit differently and at least you minimized your risk by taking both Kitna and Romo. Were you ready to spit nails when Bulger went at 5.05? I would have been!
  3. Northcutt to the Jags

    You know, I live in Jax and I WANT to be a Jags fan. I really do. Unforutnately, I don't see that happening as long the current regime is in place. I don't know if there's another team in the league that's worse than the Jags when it comes to judging talent, at least on the offensive side of the ball. At this point, I attribute Maurice Jones-Drew to either the law of averages or sheer dumb luck.
  4. Del Rio: Leftwich will start for JAX in 2007

    I couldn't agree with you more. Mediocrity is all we have to look forward to under this regime. The offensive coordinators keep getting the blame, but the bottom line is that the personnel decisions on this team have been a disaster since Coughlin left.
  5. Which RB's to keep ?

    Well, just to make it even more difficult, I'm going to go against the grain and suggest that you keep both McAllister AND Bush. If McAllister had this good of a year coming off knee surgery, imagine what he'll do next year. Also, if either Deuce or Bush miss time, you've got a bona fide stud in the other runner. For your fourth keeper, I would go with Maroney. Norwood looks like he could be a future stud as well, but we don't know who will be coaching the Falcons, what kind of offense that coach will implement, or what Dunn's status will be. Bell's had plenty of chances to become the featured back and hasn't been able to hold onto the job, and I'm just not sold on Williams.
  6. Trade Help

    I'm not a big McGahee fan, but I just don't think you can afford to do this deal. There are just too many question marks surrounding Dillon and Droughns, and while I still think Glenn has another productive season or two in him, you can probably get a younger and better player with your second round draft pick.
  7. Is Dayne not playing?

    Pittman is the guy I would have probably picked up and plugged in as well.
  8. Is Dayne not playing?

    Well, that will probably cost me a championship game. Every report I read online leading up to kickoff said that Dayne would be active today, so I didn't have a chance to reset my lineup. I didn't have any particularly good options avialable, but something would have been better than nothing.
  9. Keeper Question

    I can't see anyone keeping any of those QBs unless their RBs and WRs REALLY suck, so you should have no problem picking up a quality starting QB in the draft. In fact, you might even be able to get Bulger back.

    It's hard to imagine that Vince Young won't get at least one score through the air or on the ground, even against the Patriots. The biggest concern I have with Warner is that he's going to take a LOT of hits. If he has enough passing attempts, he will produce, but he's got to stay in one piece and take care of the ball in order for that to happen. So here's my question for you: Do you need a big game from your QB in order to have a shot at winning or do you just need your QB to get you 10 to 15 points and not bury you? If you need the former, go with Warner. If you need the latter, go with Young.
  11. I can keep any three of these four guys

    I agree with the other posters. Fargas has had plenty of opportunities and hasn't done jack with them. Any NFL calibre back that's gets a significant amount of touches due to injuries is going to produce some yardage and a few TDs, but that doesn't mean he's a starting NFL calibre back.
  12. wide reciever advice

    I would stick with Andre Johnson over your other choices at WR, and I still think Rudi is a safer choice than Brown in spite of the matchups. Where I really have an issue is with your QB. Can't you do better than Big Ben with all of the turnover at the QB position during the past couple of weeks? I'm thinking of Kurt Warner, Trent Green, or maybe even a guy like Tim Rattay here.
  13. That's a tough call. I would start by eliminating Dayne. He's not a bad option, but I wouldn't start him over a bona fide stud (Gore), a bona fide stud that's had a tough year but may be rounding back into form (Alexander) and a semi-stud that's playing at home against one of the worst rushing defenses in the NFL. I think I would go with Gore and Alexander. Alexander gets the nod over Taylor simply because I have more confidence in the Seahawks ability to move the ball than I do the Vikings.
  14. Week 17 QB decision

    I'm with Tega and Pinoles on this one, especially since I'm a Jags homer. The only time the Jags air it out is when they're way behind and I don't see that happening against KC.
  15. Keeper Question

    That was my thought as well. There's nothing wrong with giving up a 3rd round pick for Reggie Wayne, and you almost have to keep two RBs in a keeper league. With only three keepers, I imagine that only Peyton Manning and maybe one or two other QBs at the most will be kept.
