Yeah I was predicting keepers at the end of the season. Didn't know MJD would go there instead. Jennings was good enough for them late last year I thought they'd drop DMC and keep him

and now he's got a better offense but probably less likely to touch the ball as much (Giants aren't big in using their backs in the passing game with Eli)...the keeper thing is as much a crap shoot as anything else....how many besides the "lock guys" (Peyton, AP, etc) usually put up monster numbers two years in a row??

I saw CRASHER trip a kid on skates and then he stole the kids lunch money and slapped his mom when she came to pick him up.. All because the kid looked at his crease

I'd definitely change a few of my predictions now lol. But how was I supposed to know Josh Gordon would be catching passes from Paul Crewe this season? :P


Well played

sh!t I forgot that I basically need to decide between Foles and Stacey...I should point out that whichever I don't choose should probably be the first pick in the draft since he'll become the best player in the league with my luck :lol:


Stacey is NOT going in the first round, probably third at best. Foles is a no brainer.

I know, i was being facetious, I just meant knowing my luck whichever player I don't take will wind up having the best season in fantasy football

When does the draft kick off again?   I don't want a first round disaster of years past; as I'll be on vacation.

August 18th seems like the target date to start picking players, maybe get positions ready the week before.

I think I mentioned the extra roster spot in conjunction with rookie keepers when that was the du jour thing to talk about after last season. Not that I'd be opposed to having a 16th player in general, but we'd have to start the draft a couple days earlier which would make CRASHER's head explode :lol:

This is the time to vote.....go for it and propose one :)

Not at all, the only heads who will be exploding are you guys in the panic room when someone takes 8 hours to pick, because there is NO WAY IN HELL the start button gets hit till I am back from Indianpolis :P

I vote NAY, an extra roster spot makes it easier for teams to hold injured players, tough roster decisions are always part of the game.

Conditional no to another roster spot, with the "no" becoming a "yes" if we do a rookie draft and rookie-only roster spot (however, I'm not sure if Yahoo can enforce this)
