As it turned out that one goalline fumble early cost me like eleven or twelve points lol...MJD's six on what could have been a TD, a -2 for his fumble, a +2 for your defense on the fumble recovery and another couple on the points your defense didn't give up.

In any case, congrats and good job on the win (and really on your managing so far as a whole). Hopefully we'll get a rematch in a few weeks.

Not sure how much consolation this is for you after THAT Raven loss though :P


Thanks Has, looking forward to our next battle. Hopefully, we will meet with full rosters next time.

No consolation for that loss. That was a terrible game, but we can learn from it and be better next week.

Flacco actually played a pretty good game, in spite of our O-Line breakdowns.

We learn from this. I am so confident in Flacco, Cameron and the Harbaugh fixing this I am starting Flacco over Stafford this week.

Considering Stafford may not play this week that's not all that much of a statement.

Ryan hasn't put up giant numbers yet... although has outperformed Josh Freeman...
Forte has only gotten better... I thought I was selling him at peak...

So I'll give you the win on that trade... although I don't regret trying to upgrade my QB.

While we're looking back, you've gotten by far the best of your Foster/CJ 'swap' so far even if Foster missed a couple games early. I was the only one at the time that thought CJ's holdout would be a problem in season lol.

And god, Manta would be scary good if he had kept Rodgers given his point total so far without him.

While Rodgers is god like, and I HATED to deal one of my favorite players, it has been the depth I was able to procure as a result of this trade that has me in first place.

Well technically you picked Stafford, Flacco and Sims-Walker with the picks you traded for (Graham was your own pick in that round)

Stafford has carried me most weeks, Flacco is a great back-up;

Sims-Walker was a bust, but I parlayed him with Decker from the Broncos (pre-Tebow) who also carried me the weeks Stafford couldn't. Either way, I have the best group of starters I have ever had in terms of balance.

I'm quite happy that Austin Collie was auto-picked... I was going to take him, and would have passed on Steve Smith.
But overall... at 1-6. I can't be happy about much.

Oh, how little we actually know on draft day. To think I was kicking myself for being a weenie and passing on my favorite non-Jet. But the fact he wasn't even cleared for practice, involved in OTA's or even able to talk with the Colts doctors during the lockout had me worried that he'd be at least a few weeks before getting back on track.

But overall... at 1-6. I can't be happy about much.


Like passing on Gronkowski for a fifth WR? :whistling:

To me: I saw the writing on the wall about Manning, to the point he wasn't even on my top 20 QB chart. Which is also why I was so pissed that the hurricane forced Austin Collie on me.

I thought initially he would miss maybe the first two to three weeks, but would be playing catch up the whole season without camp.

You stole him from me... I didn't even have him as a potential pick... I had him as a final pick on my side. You going backup TE through me off.

lol I wouldn't go that far, the second round was just too high to deal with that much of a risk. Plus I figured I needed a WR more anyway since all the elite ones would be gone by the time it got back to me, which they were.

Usually I like to play it safe with my first few picks then take risks, which is why Beanie Wells in the fourth round was out of character for me. I'm glad Felix Jones got taken on me now, even though Beanie's had his own injury issues at least he's been good 'when' he's played :P

My 2nd rounder wasn't going to phenomenal; but yea... that hurt a lot. If I didn't go with Manning... I would have gone Bryant or Romo. And if I went Romo, I would of stuck with him rather than gamble on trading Forte for Ryan.
That's too many what ifs... sh!t happens :)

TE really went 17-18 deep it felt in the draft with all the potential sleeper picks. I didn't really like what was left on the board at other positions though I was annoyed VALUE Laflamme - jacked me on Jordy Nelson later lol (I didn't think too many people would take 5th WR's when you only play two most weeks, and quite a few did).

I think WR this year was really questionable... so it was more like grab what you can and see who plays well and drop the duds.
