  1. Priest, Blaylock, & Larry Johnson

    It isn't crazy. I like to pick-up some key back-ups before the playoffs start. Like one of my QB's back-ups so if there is a benching because they have the playoffs locked up or an injury I have a viable option. Just so long as you don't sacrifice another position. But you must have a handle on your talent if you are 11-1.
  2. League Rule Question

    What is the gestation period for a playoff? lol Our leagues the first tie breaker is head to head. You said as much, so how could you justify even discussing a change at this point in a season? Bad luck isn't something that should be considered when determining playoffs or anything else.
  3. Peyton Manning owners

    Two leagues: The teams with Manning are both leading their division and either 1 or 2 in ppg. I'm number 1 in points starting Harrington or Leftwich each week...ugh. Whatever gets it done I suppose.
  4. What player has been the biggest surprise for you?

    Javon Walker was a mild surprise from my draft class. Pittman off the waiver wire has been huge. I have struggled for 2 years with QB's so Leftwich of the WW was a nice surprise also. Especially that month or so with 300 yards every game.
  5. BIG Commish Problem!

    I agree with his Honor, let the season play out as if he paid. If he doesn't I would either pay it myself from my winnings if any or deduct an equal amount from the top playoff spots. $16 and change if the top three get paid. He very well might finish in the money and your problem is eased or eliminated. He may also pay, I suspect he wants to but can't for various reasons. In any event he is strongly advised to seek another league next year. This stuff happens and if you get any guff because he is your pal it should all go away when you send out an email saying " Despite the fact Brad is my friend his failure to pay in a timely manner will/has resulted in his not being invited back next year. Friend or not the league deserves..."blah blah blah you'll know what to say. Don't sweat it but keep trying to get him to pay.
  6. Graham and Branch

    if what you say is true... branch's speed might open the middle of the field up with the safties helping out deep. open middle of the field equals tightend production.
  7. Every Week it's SOMETHING

    i have both joneses or jonesi and played niether. pittman and dillon had better produce or i will be pissed at myself.
  8. Manning / Marino

    I have no proof in front of me but it is my general recognition that several of Marino's td's were inside the ten and five yard line. I also think it's irrelevant... Manning has been given a set of circumstances and he is taking advantage of them. Just as Marino was given a different set and he took advantage of them. Be it a dome or nice weather in Miami or poor defense or ability to audible or enforcement of certain rules. The only thing you should examine is the final results.
  9. WR Starters-

    I agree with Driver and their logic.
  10. Moulds, D. Bennett, Clayton

    Clayton and Moulds. Mike Mularkey called Andy Reid about the Bills road woes and he was told feed the team cheeseburgers before the game. Moulds will I repeat will breakout this week.
  11. I control my road to the Championship

    2 years ago I needed a win or team A to lose to make the playoffs. The team playing team A knew this and started a scrub like team and lost. I foiled his plan by winning. But the win let team A into the playoffs as well. Team A ended up winning it all and beat the team that let him into the playoffs along the way. The only saving grace was that the team that threw that game would have lost anyway in that their studs had off weeks as well. Bottom line, be careful what you wish for as you just might get it. Play the game correct and you will be rewarded.
  12. what comes around, goes around

    It was the league feelings including mine, I had one of the worst teams following draft day. Keeper league with each team keeping 1qb, 1 rb, and 1 wr and 2 of 3 te, k, d. Ricky retired, had no second round pick and Garcia was my Qb and drafted 10th of 12 in first 3 rounds. I won my first 5, lost 3 of 4 now 2 wins in a row. 8-3 in first and second in points scored. Thanks to Javon Walker and Thomas Jones draft day. Byron Leftwich, Detroit D and Michael Pittman waiver wire. It has made me re-think my approach to big name players and waiver wire flyers.
  13. Tim Rattay

    I also think Rattay just had a bad week. Palmer would be the next best and would consider him in addition to Rattay not in place of. I like three sure starters going into the playoffs. Vinny and Garcia are not that...
  14. Julius Jones...is he worth a pickup?

    30 carries from a rookie coming off a shoulder injury is a great sign. I would pick him up. I did in fact prior to this week, just for the playoffs and some depth.
  15. keeper leagues

    I copied this from our league constitution. It has worked for us for 11 years. You can of course taylor it as needed. The point of keeping a kicker or defense is it speeds the draft a bit and allows for player loyalty to form. I have had Jason Elam on my team for 6 years and have become a big fan of his. The roster restrictions allow for a bit of parody as no team can load up to much at 1 position. It makes for an overall very competitive league. PROTECTED ROSTERS: MUST CONSIST OF 1QB, 1RB, 1WR, AND 2 OF THE FOLLOWING THREE, TE, K, OR DEFENSE. PROTECTED ROSTERS ARE DUE MONDAY, 8-16-04. DRAFT PROCEDURE: STARTING WITH YOUR ORIGINAL 5 PROTECTED PLAYERS MADE UP OF 1QB, 1RB, 1WR, AND 2 OF THE FOLLOWING, TE, K, OR DEFENSE. YOU DRAFT UNTIL YOU FILL OUT YOUR ROSTER AS FOLLOWS, 2QB, 3RB, 3WR, 2TE, 2K, AND 1 DEFENSE, NOT NECESSARILY IN THAT ORDER. FOR A TOTAL OF 13 PLAYERS. ROUNDS ONE THROUGH FIVE ARE WEIGHTED BASED ON PREVIOUS YEAR'S PERFORMANCE. ROUNDS SIX THROUGH EIGHT BEGIN WITH THE HIGHEST SEEDED TEAM FOR THE PREVIOUS YEAR AND SERPENTINES UNTIL ROUND NINE. WHEN ALL TEAMS HAVE FILLED THEIR ROSTER TO THE ABOVE GUIDELINES THERE IS A THREE ROUND SUPPLEMENTAL DRAFT IN WHICH YOU MAY CHOOSE ANY POSITION(S) YOU LIKE. THE SUPPLEMENTAL ROUNDS, NINE, TEN, AND ELEVEN BEGIN WITH THE HIGHEST SEEDED TEAM AS WELL AND SERPENTINES FROM THERE. THE DRAFT IS OVER WHEN ALL TEAMS HAVE SIXTEEN PLAYERS.
  16. Listen and Learn

    To pull your punches means to refrain from doing something. To hold back your resources. I believe you wanted to throw some punches, in a verbal manner. Why don't you start over and try being nice and the others may be nice to you. If not that's fine as well.
  17. Start Wayne or Clayton?

    Clayton gets 2 this week.
