  1. Your schools non-conference opponents for 07

    Can you say ...... CUPCAKE!
  2. Moss to Pack Done Deal?

    Sounds like "Agent Speak" to me. Yea, Randy Moss ran a 4.26-4.31
  3. Packers After LJ?

    If I was Green Bay I wouldn't deal Jennings. I think he's a star by 2008. I would try to give up a 1st and a 4th and if that isn't enough throw in a 4th in 2008.
  4. Packers After LJ?

    I agree with BB here. Terrible comparison.
  5. Court date tomorrow

    What Darin said. I went through an incredibly tough court battle for my two children about 8 years ago. I was fortunate enough to get custody of my kids. I applaud your efforts to stay involved with your children when they don't live with you. It would tear me up to be a "weekend only" Father. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
  6. My gift to you today

  7. Who will your team pick?

    Jarvis Moss would be a mistake. Low character guy. Not very strong. I think he only did 11-15 reps @ 225lbs at the combine (Hell, Quinn put it up 22 times).
  8. Flying first class

    I frequently fly on business also (8-10 days per month) and sit in 1st class for about 30% of my flights. I notice the same thing with the looks when coach flying passengers stroll past me when I'm fortunate enough to sit in 1st class. I can't help but repeat the look when I'm unfortunately one of those coach fare payers! Last week I took a last second trip to the Windy city and the only seats available were middle seats. To my right was a 30ish looking man that must have weighed at least 325 and wasn't into the whole hygiene thing and to my left was a frail 70+ lady sitting by the window. At 6 foot 3 and 245 it wasn't one of my favorite flights!
  9. Tom Brady. We keep 1 player in our auction league and the guy who is keeping Addai has offered him straight up for Tom Brady. We draft 3 QB'S (10 team league) - Start 2 - Draft 4 RB's - Start 2 - High performance scoring. It is a PPR league so Addai has a little more value than some of the other 2nd to 3rd tier running backs. I like the fact that Addia will be getting 65-70% of the carries this year but I also think Brady is in for his biggest year of his career with the WR additions the Patriots have made this off-season. I have Brady ranked #4 behind Manning, Palmer and Brees. I have Addai ranked between #6-#9. Would you trade Brady straight across for Joseph Addai?
  10. I've been offered ............

    Great response Super Chief. I appreciate your time. I have got caught up, in the past, focusing in on the "running back is the most important position in FF" common belief. But, when I started to change my focus on the RB, the more success I've had. Don't get me wrong, the Running back position is important but as the RBBC philosophy becomes more prevalent in the NFL the "other" positions become more and more important. If this offer was made to me 2 years ago I would have jumped all over it but I think I am going to stay with Brady in this situation. He's solid, plays every game and has the best group to throw to that he ever has. With our roster requirements of 3 QB's (start 2) and 4 RB's (start 2) I think Brady's value is elevated. By getting him for $1.00 as my keeper with a $300.00 cap (18 roster spots) I can go two ways in my draft ..... I can pay $35-$48 for another stud QB (Palmer, McNabb, Bulger) and take a flyer on a $1-$6 QB late in the draft (Campbell, Schaub, Frye, T. Jackson) to fill in during bye weeks. Or I can pick up a 3rd tier QB like a Green, Culpepper, A. Smith type guy for $7-$16 to compliment Brady and a late draft low dollar pick and have a lot of cap space to go after a top 5 RB and still get a couple Top 15 WR's.
  11. I've been offered ............

    Thanks DKF for your input. I have this "gut" feeling that Addai is going to get hurt and miss significant time. I felt the same way about Shawn Alexander and dealt him a few days before our draft. That turned out to be the decision that led me to the Championship of my league. I am still undecided on what I want to do? It's great to hear these varying opinions.
  12. Your schools non-conference opponents for 07

    Huskies are young. Probably starting freshman phenom Jake Locker @ QB. They need their WR to step up and create some big plays. With the Huskies schedule I'm hoping for a 7-4 schedule. Probably looking at a 5, 6 win season though.
  13. Your schools non-conference opponents for 07

    University of Washington Huskies 8/31 - @ Syracuse 9/8 - Boise State 9/15 - Ohio State 12/01 - @ Hawaii 4 game stretch: 9/8 - Boise St 9/15 - Ohio State 9/22 - @ UCLA 9/29 - @ USC
  14. I've been offered ............

    If you look at the numbers Tom Brady has put up, the last couple years, with arguably one of the worst WR crews in the league you don't see a huge increase in his production this year with the solid group of WR's he has at his disposal?
  15. I've been offered ............

    Here is the answer .... Keep in mind last year was the first year we "kept" a player so each of those players are available this year. You can only "Keep" a player for 1 season. Top RB's available: (I'll rank them how I think they should be ranked) LT SJ LJ SA Portis R. Brown Top QB's available: Manning (McNabb will probably be a keeper) Palmer Bulger Vick Hasselbeck Looking at these lists it would probably be smarter to keep Brady for $1.00 and use some of my money to get one of the Top 4 Rb's. Where does Addai fall on this list? In my mind he falls somehere between 5 and 9. He has great upside, especially with Rhodes being in Oakland.
  16. I've been offered ............

    I am a bit concerned about Addai's ability to stay healthy too. It's one of the reasons that I am leaning towards Brady. Playing in a "1" player Keeper league I need to feel confident that the "guy" has a great chance of playing all year.
  17. I've been offered ............

    Normally, I would too.
  18. I've been offered ............

    Thanks Guys. I normally would keep a RB over a QB with equal value. I ended the season with Ronnie Brown, Cedrick Benson, Jerious Norwood and Corey Dillon as my RB's. I can't "keep" Brown because he was my keeper last year (We can only "keep" the same player for 1 year). I think Addia's probably the smart move given the fact that he shouldn't be a part of a RBBC in Indy but I have a great feeling about Brady with his improved receiving corp. Brady is the "safe" pick here too because he doesn't get hurt and you know he will start 16 games every year. If I kept Brady I would look to spend minimal dollars on my other 2 QB's and have enough Cap room to spend a higher percentage on my RB's and WR's then the other owner's would have. Our Keeper's only cost us 50% of what they were drafted at, or picked up for through free agency. In both cases Brady and Addai would only cost $1.00 because Addai was dropped in week 2 and picked up for $2.00 and Brady was dropped prior to week 17 because the owner who had him didn't think he would play the last weekend and needed QB help. I immediately picked him up because I had Palmer and Bulger to start week 17. Any more thoughts or advice?
  19. Another trade offer...

    Mark it down .... LJ is in for a "down" year. Too many carries last year. No passing threat. LJ will finish between #5 - #7 RB at the end of the year.

  24. Your Final Four

    No way OSU makes it to the finals. Kansas vs. North Carolina (the two teams with the most depth and athleticism) North Carolina wins a close one. I only got 12 of the Sweet 16. I picked Arkansas to upset your Trojans!
