  1. Cadillac Williams the next Ladanian?

    True, but that's not at all what he intially said. He said that (1) if one were smart/informed, they would've taken him first round this year (no league qualification, which is asinine - in any league that isn't a dynasty, this is a foolish move) and (2) that he would not have taken any of that list of established studs ahead of Caddy, excepting JJ (this would've been a nice time to clarify that he wouldn't have taken them b/c they weren't available). Dynasty league - taking Caddy first round is a great move. Redraft - you'd have to be on crack, or otherwise very open to taking huge risks. As we all know, if your first round pick in a redraft league bombs - you're hosed.
  2. Cadillac Williams the next Ladanian?

    No offense, but you are a crackhead. You would've taken Cadillac, who had not seen a single snap in a regular season game, ahead of those guys? That's laughable. The smart and informed drafter would've taken one of them first, knowing that Cadillac would be available in the 2nd or 3rd round - those others would not. I took him in the 3rd in both of my drafts - people laughed. I think it's safe to say that I'm the one laughing now.
  3. If this weekend was Like Christmas

    At least you got my Palmer over Collins question right (got me an extra couple points). Unfortunately, I had a pretty sick week in my big money league: QB - Palmer RB - McAllister RB - KJones WR - Steve Smith WR - Fitzgerald Flex - Cadillac TE - Witten K - Wilkins DEF - WASH Took the points by a longshot and KJones and Witten didn't do much for me at all. I'll buy that for a dollar.
  4. Arrington - Lelie - What Gives

    I think Lelie will come around, but I'm not so sure about Arrington. His complete inability to pass protect has got to be a big concern - I wouldn't be surprised to see Shipp continue to get at least half the time in the backfield.
  5. What is the biggest week 1 surprise

    Definitely Miami. STL has been shaky away from home over the last few years - this isn't the first time they've lost to a crap team on the road. GB and DET are going in opposite directions - I wasn't very surprised by that one at all. Denver completely imploding like that shocked me.
  6. Does anyone know if there is a way to move all free agents to the waiver wire each Sunday (and have them stay there until mid-week)? I'm having a hell of a time instituting a good dwaiver process on this site . . .
  7. ESPN Sunday Night Crew

    If only this were true . . . Theisman seems to end up somewhere prominent every year. Why anyone would pay him to talk about football, I have no idea. He sucks.
  8. Cadillac!

    No, but I heard it - TB announcers were going nuts.
  9. Cadillac!

    Indeed. And for those who were worrying about the "RBBC" - how many carries did Pittman have?
  10. QB Quandry

    Go with Pennington - Plummer is a lot stronger at home . . . against tough Ds (though I'm not sure the Miami D is so tough anymore) on the road, he's not so good.
  11. Heap or Cooley?

    Hard to sit Heap when you know that he's playing - I think I'd gamble on him and give him the start. I'm not sold on Cooley just yet - he's a redzone threat, but he really doesn't get the ball that much. Heap, when healthy, is generally targeted far more often.
  12. Tough one...Bennett or DJax

    DJax, I think. Pitt's D is a fair amount better than Jacksonville's and there are fewer questions surrounding DJax. Until Bennett proves that he can perform like last year w/o Mason in the fold, I'd go with DJax.
  13. bench Lewis?

    No brainer - go with CMart and the solid matchup. I see no reason to doubt what Billick has said about splitting carries.
  14. Which QB To Start?

    I'd go with Pennington - KC's D is a joke and I'm just not ready to rely on Harrington or Leftwich yet.
  15. Tight Ends vs. O.K. Wide Recivers

    Take a look at various projections and past performances for your answer. Look at Crumpler, for example - 750 yards and 6 TDs last year? All mid-tier WRs (and most WRs that are draftable) have higher upside than that.
  16. Julius Jones vs. Tiki Barber

    I say Jones - Barber publicly stated a few weeks ago that Brandon Jacobs will be vulturing all of his TDs. They'll probably have similar games from a yardage standpoint, bu JJ has a better shot at scoring.
  17. WDIS?

    I think Arrington is probably your best bet. Shipp will get a few looks, but JJ is the safest bet to get 15-20 carries.
  18. Cant decide.....

    Parker - at least you know that PIT's O-line can run protect with the best of them. Barlow will likely get plenty of looks, but I have zero faith in his O-line until I see it do something.
  19. wr

    Rod Smith is the safest bet here. Miami's secondary ain't what it used to be - they play somewhat soft underneath and Rod should end up with plenty of receptions and yards.
  20. RB

    I love this stuff - Cadillac is in a RBBC now? Funny, that's not what I read . . .
  21. LJ Smith is available

    I don't see any reason to sacrifice a RB with upside for a second backup TE. Stick with what you've got.
  22. J. Jones or W.Parker?

    JJ - no question. I'm not sold on this Willie Parker character just yet - a lot of talk about this guy when he hasn't done anything yet.
  23. WDIS Flex

    I don't see why everyone is down on Caddy b/c of this news. All it's saying is that Pittman will be sharing the backfield with him on occasion - not replacing him. Yeah - Pittman will take a few touches away from Caddy, but that will only serve to relieve the pressure on the kid. Tough call b/w he and Walker though - I think I'd go with Cadillac, as he's guaranteed the touches and, as someone mentioned above, Javon struggled mightily against DET last year.
  24. WDIS?T. Housh or Fitzgerald?

    I actually like Fitzgerald - I'm thinking he puts together a sick season and it starts this Sunday.
  25. Sit DD?

    Only situation where I'd start Parker over DD right now is the Huddle MVP Challenge. Parker's got upside this week, but DD is the safer bet.
