In Topic: Can Travis Kelce Get Anywhere Near the Level of Jimmy Graham?

01 October 2014 - 09:31 PM

NE was #1 against te's going into that MNF game.... Not saying Kelce is match proof, just pointing out an interesting fact. Also M. Bennett had a pretty big game against the 49ers, so I wouldn't bench him based off the matchup....

 

You speak truth...........still the 49ers do have the ability to cover big bodies with big bodies and have proven it the rule with a few exceptions.

 

Additionally, the 49ers have specifically taken notice of Travis Kelchy who could be "the new Vernon Davis for Alex Smith"

Finally, while the Harbaugh really wants to win this game I suspect if they were going to lose they would much rather have it be to Jamaal Charles than Alex Smith throwing the ball to anybody.

Will KC evolve their offense to take advantage of his mismatch ability like NO does with Graham?  It seems Kelce should be used more in their passing game.

 

This is a little bit funny to me. Kelce had 8 catches on 9 targets including a red zone TD this week.

 

How many targets would you like to see for him that would satisfy the desire to be "used more in the pass game"?

 

His snap count has been rising each week as he is essentially a rookie that didn't even have a full off-season, he missed a lot of OTAs rehabbing. I doubt he even knows what to do in the all the formations yet.

 

I'm a big believer in the talent but it sounds like hopes are way too high for him this week.

 

KC plays the 49ers in SF.

 

SF is a top 3 team covering TEs this year statistically, and in reality they probably are the best.

 

They shut down Ertz last week with no problem and they should shut down Kelce this week too. I have to play him at flex in a league I have no depth but I'd be sitting him everywhere else.

 

One last buy opportunity, there could be owners who will see the meager stats and think earlier was a fluke. Pounce!


In Topic: So who starts going to the early church service tomorrow?

You do not need to go to church to accomplish that. 

I was raised in the church and was a born again christian for 15 years till I started to think for myself. 

What I realized was there were way more lies spewed from within organized religion. It was a huge turnoff. 

I prefer to think my life has more meaning than serving some God others claim i should worship. 

If God is in desperate need of my love or me worshiping him/her then he is not so great after all IMO

So, I do believe in God, but my God does not punish nor judge, My God also has a sense of humor.

Sorry if I hurt your feelings  :wave:

Forgive me?  :dunno:

 

       I'll be in church for part of Sunday and watching football part of Sunday. I'll spend part of Sunday nights working with kids in the community at a church playing sports games, teaching some bible verses and trying to impart some real world life skills using experiences I've had in my life, a number of them sports related. Sometimes I'll make it home in time to see the 2nd half of the Sunday night game. Many of these kids will be kids who have never otherwise been in a church, the parents, more likely the single parent, is dropping them off to take a break for a couple of hours.

 

I'm not surprised that you would have a bad experience with a religious organization there are misguided people in all walks of life. Religious leaders, teachers, counselors, politicians, parents, everywhere. I don't take offense at anything you have said but I am concerned that people who read your comments would be mislead. 

 

God does not need our love or worship................. He is God.

However people in this world, our neighbors, community members, friends and relatives, can use the love of God as shown through us.

 

By the way when Atheists want to show love and help others, and many do, I'll stand right along side them work together, and high five them when we're done. I'll join their FF league and do my best to make sure I beat them every time!

 

You are correct that you don't need to go to church in order to accomplish any of this, but if someone is fortunate enough to find the right group of people with a common goal to love and help others you will find that you can be a part of something that does amazing things.

 

God does not need our money, he is doing OK from my understanding. People in my community could use monetary and other help many churches provide. People around the world can for that matter.

 

Jesus Christ in the bible was far more critical of the religious hierarchy of the times than he was of general humanity and I'm sure the same is true right now. Sorry you had a bad experience with the people you knew.

 

The dude preferred to hang with the kids and sinners. God was and is about love 


In Topic: Just took Calvin #1 in my money league ...

01 September 2014 - 04:44 PM

I don't see this team as rough a some of you guys do. If I'm understanding the OP on scoring system as 6pts for TD passes then its perfectly feasible that Stafford would be a 2nd round pick. 

 

So I'm guessing he went 

 

Calvin

Stafford

Stacy

Ellington

Floyd    (I'm assuming Michael here)

 

That's not awful. There are significant risks in here for sure, I'm not a CJ guy, don't know if Ertz is going to be the breakout FF scorer in that O, etc but I understand where he was coming from and I think you guys are being too harsh. In fact I'd go out on a limb and say its better than 50-50 he makes the playoffs. Love to see him come back after the season and tell us how it turned out.  


In Topic: The Skinny Addition

29 August 2014 - 11:55 AM

I've been playing Fantasy Football for over 20+ years and won multiple championships in my league.

If there's a 10 point rating system on my football knowledge, i would be a 12.

 

So go ahead if you have any questions, i'll answer them with the best of my abilities. 

 

:thumbsup:

 

I have a big picture question worthy of your breadth of knowledge with consideration your many years of FF experience.

 

What implications do you see the new emphasis on DB contact after 5 yds having on FF this year......... and into the future if it sticks?

 

I have been thinking a lot about this myself and I think it could have both redraft and dynasty implications but I love having the opportunity to ask someone else who has a long window of watching changes in the NFL effect the FF landscape over time. Plus I think the question fits OK here with respect to the complaint regarding "a little help board".
