Our draft is tomorrow night, got our order e-mailed to me yesterday- 10th in a 10 man league. It is a rebound draft, so I will get the next (11th) pick as well. Thinking a RB and Moss if hes available- if he's not, then 2 RBs.

i don't know, but romo was picked ahead of peyton in TWO drafts that i've been in.

i sat back and picked up quality receivers while others fought over the top qb's. then, nabbed carson palmer in the 9th round.

I don't think there will be a HUGE drop in peyton's #'s but they will level off a bit especially with harrison's decline.

Just got back from my draft my team looks as follows:

QB: Drew Brees, Marc Bulger

RB: LJ, MJD, DeAngello Williams, Fred Taylor, Ray Rice

WR: Randy Moss, Brandon Marshall, Hines Ward, Javon Walker, Sidney Rice

K: Shayne Graham, Rob Bironas

A couple good players but im starting to doubt the depth at WR we start 2 RB's and 3 WR/TE's each week. Fred Taylor was more of a hundcuff for MJD, might have to trade him for a solid WR as the season progresses.

What do you guys think?

Had my last draft last night and let me say some of these people that are in this league are morons its an 8 team league due to 2 people dropping out. They were taking kickers and 1/2 arse QB's by the 5th round. We start 1QB,2RB,3WR,1TE,1K,1DEF

here is what I ended up with

QB- RODGERS,DELHOMME

RB- ADDAI,GRANT,WCGAHEE,K.SMITH

WR- OWENS,FITZGERALD,HOLT,R.WILLIAM(DET),JENNINGS,HARRISON

TE- D.CLARK,J.SHOCKEY

K- P.DAWSON

DEF- SEATTLE

My QB's arent that great due to taking them my last 2 picks but other than that I am pretty solid.

Nice looking squad. Stacked at WR, pretty deep at RB. QB might not be as strong as the other positions, but maybe Rodgers or Delhomme will step it up.

BTW, I hear what you are saying about K's being taken early, but I got laughed at when I took the Vikes "D" early, but they scored a ton of points last year.

Some good teams. See a lot of Derek Anderson, grabbed him too.

QB: D. Anderson

RB: C.Portis, J.Lewis, E.James, F.Taylor

WR: T.O., M.Colston, G.Jennings, L.Coles, D.Stallworth

TE: J.Witten, T.Gonzalez

K: N.Folk

Def: Chargers

My one regret- picking the Chargers while the Vikes were available.

This also left me with a team void of the Purple. Shame on me.

Merriman's going to play on it. Sure hope he has one of those Kevin McHale under the table agreements cause he could blow any future money by wrecking himself for life.

********************

Rudi Johnson just landed in Detroit. We'll see if he's got anything left in the tank.

In the 14th of 16 rounds right now, 12 player league and I had the 4th pick (wrap around style).

So far

QB: Hasselbeck (keeper from last year, cost me an 8th round pick)

Favre

RB: Addai, LJ, S. Slaton, Justin Fargas, TJ Duckett and Mike Hart

WR: Ocho Cinco, Santana Moss, DJ Hackett

TE: Shockey

Def: Tampa

No kicker yet, but that is next and my 15th and 16th picks will be receivers.

    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.  
    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  Hope they work for ya!  
    • Reminds me of a memorable morning at our place when  THREE male's landed on a front picture window ledge and just sat there for a few minutes looking in.  What a glorious sight!  They were likely just moving through because we do not see them during a normal summer. In fact this summer we have noticed a decline in many species; no bluebirds at all, only a couple doves, fewer swallows, not as many wrens (but still plenty of them) and for the first time a pair of cowbirds. Normal mornings are like a symphony around here just about daybreak.
    • forgot I made this post, I fished a lake here in SD last weekend that has a sunken road way and bridge completely submerged. Its gotten to the point the concrete has fallen apart under water but you can still see most of the structure in tact but also some rebar etc.   I wanted to get a screen capture but as usual that exact spot was popular and already occupied with other boats playing bumper boats to anchor and fish near and I didn't want to intrude on their fishing space just for a picture. 
    • Good post and discussion. I'm convinced not more than 10%, and that might be stretching it and I include myself in the 90%, know how to use their equipment. Every fishing site is loaded with similar posts.
