Allright, most people seem to like these, and for those of you who say "manage your own team" I have my opinion about what to do, thank you very much (see below). For those who are here for the fun of it, throw your takes out.

Here goes:

I've got 5 backs, I can only play 3.

LenDale White

Pierre Thomas

Ray Rice

Steve Slaton

MoJo Drew

Slaton and Drew are the obvious choices, White has a tough matchup, and Thomas is questionable for Sunday. I think my third is Rice, unless I hear better news about Thomas before Sunday. Any other takes?

Wow, we almost have the same RB's. I have Slaton, Pierre, and Rice on my FFB team too! (nothing to be proud of, Russ) I picked up Pierre as a risk/reward player for the oft injured Bush. Ironically Pierre is the one questionable for the first week. Ha!

I wouldn't put much faith in Pierre just yet. I'd go Rice.

I've got MJD on my team but I'm a little worried about his "leg bruise". They aren't saying much.

I'm starting Rice over White this weekend, KC has no run defense and White plays Pit so tough call! I start 2 RB and 3 WR in that league though, and im loaded at RB with Ronnie Brown(other starter), White, Rice, Donald Brown, Felix Jones and Derrick Ward.

Cadillac was named starter in TB the other day. FYI.

Donald Brown is still waiting in the wings of Addai but in a couple of weeks he could be in a similar situation as Pierre in NO, especially if Addai stinks it up like he did last year. They really like Brown.

Jeepers creepers Cadillac starter lol wow....I can always cut Ward later on...I got a feeling quite a few RBs will go down this year so I like to be loaded or possibly trade. Trying to trade Ward for Colston as we speak..

I can only play two backs in my league. I have jones-drew, which I am starting for sure. But for my backup I have Kevin Smith (Det.)and Julius Jones from Seattle. Which one should I start.

I am also torn between starting either Chad Ochocinco or Santonio Holmes

Who do I start in my 3rd RB/WR slot?

The options are:

Donnie Avery

Percy Harvin

Jamal Lewis

Julius Jones

Harvin, think Avery still out, Lewis going against Vikes D, and don't think Jones will do much.

Hoping Favre gets Harvin involved and show off his skills

Yep, I think Harvin has a shot at some big plays. Who should I start here. I can run 3 running backs and one wide out or vice versa.

Backs:

Tomlinson

Slaton

Barber

Addai

Wideouts:

V. Jackson

Desean Jackson

Lance Moore

Roy Williams

I'm leaning towards Barber, Tomlinson, Slaton and Moore. Any thoughts?

I am feeling good about my

  • Jay Cutler
  • LaDainian Tomlinson
  • Reggie Bush
  • Edgerrin James "Flex"
  • Randy Moss
  • Hines Ward
  • Kevin Boss

Was able to get the Vikings D and 13th round Ryan Longwell was still on the table, so I scooped him up. I went a little over board with RB's this year for my bench, but some good talent was sitting their. grin

    • Well another game 7 tomorrow night.  Sens have a tough go having to play in Pitt.  Hoping they can pull it off though.  That Karlsson has some wheels!  Even in the 3rd period last night he was fast.     If it is Preds and Pitt it is a toss up, probably go 7 games.  If it is Preds and Sens, I think Preds will take it in 5-6.  
    • I get your drift Rebel but this kid is not going looking for trouble. I think he just wants some ability to respond as a last resort. Sorta the same reason so many of us have carried for  years-  a last ditch option. And he is not going to walk around with it under his raincoat! Ha Ha! I guess I will have to take a look at some of these things just for the heck of it.  To me they have always appeared to be a plastic shooting appliance. I have no use for one and no interest in buying one. There are other options and I certainly do not consider them to be decent hunting weapons,  although I know the younger generation does.
    • I've got $100 that says it's the diaphragm, like I first said. Put yer hand under the carb input are where your line and diaphragm are. Pump that bulb hard. if you get a drop or two of gas leaking out there, you DO have a hole or tiny tear. Pumping it up makes it run better at high speed and /or brings up idle is the telltale sign.
    • Thanks for the input guys.  When the bulb is pumped up it does run fine at high RPM's after a little bit.  I can hear/feel it want to kick in all the way and then it goes fine.  So sometimes it hesitates just a little bit before jumping up to full RPM's.  Of course the boat is on the lift at the cabin so this weekend I will check the size of the lines under the cowl so I can buy some of those along with some other parts.  I will have to decide if I trailer it home or work on it up at the lake when I am there for a week in mid June.  Thanks again for some direction.
    • Whole weekend cheats yes I agree even with ideal weight but one cheat meal a week I feel is ok If you are maintaining your calorie deficit for everything else. I feel like this is actually a good thing because when you are in a calorie deficit your bodies metabolism actually will slow down as your leptin levels drop to conserve energy. Having one cheat meal will temporarily raise your levels.  Now your cheat meal should be sensible still something with carbs and protein think burger or philly cheese steak sandwich pizza with sausage two or 3 slices not the whole pizza.   Fasted cardio before your cheat meal is also recommended         Anyway like others have said before being in a calorie deficit is the way to lose weight You need to find your calorie maintenance level then ideally cut 500 calories a day below that this will get you around 1lb of fat a week loss. Weigh yourself ONCE a week in the morning and track your progress give it 3 weeks before you evaluate and see if the calorie deficit you are at is right if you gained or stayed the same weight take more calorie off your daily intake. Being in a 500 calorie deficit is the most important part exercise comes second when adding exercise this is going to add to the daily calorie you burn so if without exercise you calorie deficit to lose weight was at 2500 calories with exercise it might be 2700 calories a day.   When cutting or anytime really clean foods are #1 in my book if it doesn't spoil in a week I don't eat it Think chicken, broccoli, green beans, peppers, sweet potatoes, green beans, turkey blah blah   You should also count your Macronutrients which are carbs protein and fat Ideally when cutting  10-30% carbs, 40-50% protein, 30-40% fat  
    • Have you had a chance to use your new Garmin Ref? Any feedback to share... 
    • Now that Dems are out of the majority I am seeing big sales on black guns. I would think you could get a better modern rifle than the bushmaster for a very reasonable price right now. 
    • "Because he lives in a high tension area" ... "high capacity"....    This one sounds like trouble just waiting to happen.
    • check for crack in the boot between the motor and the carb. get it started squirt some carb cleaner on the boot if the rpm goes up there is a leak.   
    • just spotted one. yay ! LOL
