    Black Monday

    This seems to be the year of the Re-Tread. So many coaches being reported as interviewing so far or generally linked to these open spots are just re-treads. "Oh. Yes. I failed before, but it's all different now. Now I will be a success for you." The NFL is really sad in their efforts to bring in new, exciting coaching options. They just hired what has been hired (and failed) before.
  2. Who you take #1, or who you take anywhere in a draft, is not about total points scored. If it were, QBs would likely be the first 10-12 players off the board. Where you take players, Mahomes and other QBs included, is based on their relative value to other players at their position. The difference between the #1 RB and the #10 RB might be huge whereas the difference between the #1 QB (assume Mahomes) and the #10 QB might be minimal. Does it make sense to take Mahomes at #1, or even in the first at all, if a QB drafted 10th, presumably several rounds later, offers only a minimal loss in points per game? Not really. Value. This is what FFers have talked about for years. You draft for relative value, not the flashy points. Now, that said, in my main league, I try to set the scoring so that QBs/RBs/WRs/and even elite TEs have roughly the same PPG value at the top end. What this does is make it plausible that a drafter could go several different ways with draft strategy. It is also a 2-QB league so QBs fly off the board like all positions. No one's waiting until the 7th or 8th round. It's a 10-team league and you want 3 QBs so they get picked. Someone will take Mahomes in the first next year. I generally try to get 2 QBs by the end of the 8th and my third by the 10th. If I don't, reliable QBs will be gone. At that point, I move into IDPs and then close out with backup picks and flyers. But that's a whole other discussion. That league is unique. In more traditional 1-QB leagues, either 10-or 12-teamers, I wouldn't take Mahomes, or any QB, in the first. I've reached in the 3rd before and it's rarely worked out. Better to wait. Why take Mahomes in the first when I can get a Ryan/Rothlisberger/Goff/Rivers type later on? Draft for value, not flash!

    Antonio Brown requests trade

    We've seen this act with the Steelers before - Santonio became Wallace who became Brown who will become JuJu.

    Raiders Hire Mike Mayock as GM

    Yeah! Cause every one is always right about every player in the draft. That's why only HOFers go in the top 10 and no one outside of the first round is ever really good.

    Mike Tomlin needs to go

    So, the Steelers miss the playoffs with a 9-6-1 record, a half game behind the 10-6 Ravens. If close games are lost by poor coaches, or even just coaching mistakes, consider 4 of the Steelers 6 losses this year. Lost to KC by 5. Somewhat respectable, I guess. Lost to Oak by 3. OAKLAND! Lost to SD by 3. A game they flat gave away! Lost to NO by 3. Again, respectable, but still a loss. THREE 3 point losses! One to a horrible team and another a pathetic collapse. Win any one of these games and they win the division and are in the playoffs. Heck! Had they not tied and had beaten the Browns in week one when they were coached by an idiot and QBed by an average, at best, QB they tie the Ravens at 10-6 and win the division on best division record. But nope. They are coached by Tomlin. So, no playoffs for them!

    The Official Week 16 FU Thread: Championship Edition

    J Cook is fast reaching my FU list. Only needed 6 from him. He caught the first two passes of Carr for 20 yards. 4 points. Easy right? Was out for a bit, but has been in, but not ONE target since. Sitting at 4. Awesome.

    Elijah Mcguire

    I own in 3 of 4 leagues. Only played him in 1 though. Went with J Williams instead in the other 2. Not horrible, but not as good.

    Two amazing things: 1. A team with Rudolph as their TE made it to the finals 2. I'm now in danger of losing that finals due to Rudolph

    Redskins at Titans: In-Game Discussion

    Why do teams, like the Titans here, run the clock down and then call time out to avoid the delay of game? They stop the clock to kick. They punt and the ball is fair caught and no clock runs. Had they not called time out and punted, at least another 5 seconds or more would have run. Probably even 10s. Everyone does this, but I don't get it.

    Championship DST!?!

    2 sacks, 1 turnover, and 16 PA. Failed to meet expectations. EDIT: That Pick six saved the day!!

    Championship DST!?!

    Titans have been a disappoint already. 10 points, to this team, at halftime? No turnovers and 1 sack. Disappointing. Embarrassing even.
