    And still Russell Wilson to go.

    Anyway, Happy Draft Day folks!

    I agree, it'll be tough for Paul Allen to keep all his players even if the cap increases over the next couple years, it is just impossible...I suspect after Wilson's big contract that Marshawn will be let go as they will not be able to afford to keep him and all their players and with Christine Michael and Robert Turbin right behind him, it'd be no surprise if they did decided to let him go.

    I'm happy for Earl Thomas and Sherman as well as Chancellor last year but it makes it harder to keep players like Red Bryant, Chris Clemons, Golden Tate, etc....wish the cap would increase but even then, players will never be happy until they get paid what they feel they deserve. :agreed:

    Now...time for the Draft...Houston Texans on the clock....let's go!

    Nice last second cock-block by the Vikings.

    Dear Texans, please do not pick Carr Jr, Savage or Garrapolo (sp?). Giving Keenum one more season has to be a better option than those guys.

    Well, not only do I think Manziel will be a bust... but now Josh Gordon is facing a 1 year suspension. :lol: :lol:

    Hard to believe how great Keenum played last season but just could not catch a break in getting at least 1 win. He came close once but Luck fought his way back when the Colts were down. Keenum played very well in that game but just seemed overshadowed with how well Luck played to catch up and ultimately win the game. Couldn't believe it but I agree, he needs a bit of work but I think he's good enough for another season/chance. :agreed:

    So I take it you're not thrilled the Texans took Savage...

    Well, for the past 5 years, sometime every May has been when my Fantasy League's owner sets everything up. We determine how much money to put in, his daughter rolls dice (now on Skype, instead of waiting for everyone to be in person) to determine draft order, etc. 12 team league.

    For the 3rd year straight, I'm 1st. :lol:

    Downside to that, of course, being that I pick... then wait through 22 picks before I get to pick again. Upside, my 2nd and 3rd are back-to-back. But you guys know how that works.

    Think I can get away with taking Peyton Manning and Demaryius Thomas with my 2nd and 3rd picks like I did last season? Considering Manning scored the most fantasy points, I'd say no. I'm gonna have to take him with my 1st pick and hope that he produces those insane numbers again.

    We've decided on $500 per person this season. Double what it's always been. 4k to 1st, 1500 to 2nd, 500 to 3rd. I won 12 weeks straight last season, finished 4th place. That cannot happen again!

    I like him alright, the last game I watched was PITT vs Notre Dame where they won 28-21 and he was alright. Either way, should give some competition. :shrug:

    Anyway, Happy Mother's Day, all....

    Saints sign UDFA WR Brandon Coleman. How in the hell was this guy not drafted? 6"6 BEAST! I think the Saints stole one here.:hbang:

    I like Seattle's first pick in Paul Richardson, should compliment Rice and Harvin really well. He's 6' 1", 170, very fast and has some Harvin-like qualities.....

    Interesting that they picked up another local QB too.......

    Can't wait for the season to start already!

    You know what's awesome, but at the same time, absolutely blows?

    My job is taking me to Seattle.

    I love that city; but unless we beat the Seahawks in week 3 AND beat them in a SB rematch.... it's not going to be the best place for a Broncos fan. I miss living in Denver lol.


    Anyone want to bet against our matchup in week 3 bringing the new crowd noise record? My Broncos better learn some serious physical gesture codes, cause there's no way they're gonna be able to hear Manning. :lol:

    Espn has Denver ranked 2nd ahead of the 49ers.....I'd agree more with that than NFL.com's rankings where it's SF 2nd and Denver 3rd. With what Denver did in Free Agency alone makes them much better than they were last season and they made it further than the 49ers. :rant:

    Oh, and I had no Idea the 'Hawks wanted Dominique Easley. It seems as though the Seahawks and Vikings do a lot of trading. Pretty cool he went to the Patriots though even though it would've been awesome to see him in Seattle. :yesway:

    Well, my job decided I'm going to Charlotte NC instead of Seattle. I can deal with being in Panthers territory lol.

    I know! I thought he just didn't want to go but apparently he was mourning over a death in the family.....or so his mother said. :shrug:

    I make the mistake of turning on "the nfl channel" every once in a while......

    If I was smart, I'd just record it once and keep watching it. :nuts:

    "great idea, let's talk about the jets quarterback situation"

    "Johnny Menzhell? sure, we haven't discussed him enough at all"

    "tony romo, does he deserve the wrap he gets"

    And then there is some filler to go along inbetween that I'm sure bores the poor babies to death.

    nah, it's like that all the time. Unless there is some kinda breaking news, it's the same tired subjects.
