No way is Green ranked higher than Marshall Marshall Marshall...

Not sure why you ranked them in 'teams', tho; why not just rank them in order from #1-12?

I think A. Thomas should replace S. Davis in your list, btw...

its just a small league w/ just 6 of us, so we don't have overullings, but i think it was a very unfair trade

"Game over man, GAME OVER!"

Gimme a break you Hudson clones! The knowledgeable and intelligent players will always find a way to compete, even when someone stacks the odds against them. Why do you think casinos still need to have blacklists of gamblers they won't allow in?

Holmes finished with more fantasy points than Green last year, and Edge put up Faulk-type numbers two years in a row before his injury. There is always another RB fighting for to be top dawg, and no superstar is ever more than one play away from a season- or career-ending injury.

Let's also not forget that fantasy teams also have QB's, WR's, TE's, PK's, and DT's. If the guy with Faulk and Green also has Warner at QB then even I might start to worry, but I wouldn't delete my team and say, "Game over man, GAME OVER!"

Given this "we're gonna lose anyways" train of thought, the Houston Texans shouldn't even suit up this year ... they should just forfeit all their games, right? We don't watch NFL football to see a bunch of quitters and also-rans. We expect these guys to be tough physically and mentally, to always go the distance and try to win no matter what the odds. It's a good thing for the Patriots last year that they didn't say, "Well, multi-millionaire QB is out and our #1 RB has rushed for 5 yards in the last two seasons ... let's just call it a year." Oh and top of that you can add in that their only serious threat at WR played in 3 games. Not exactly the team that people would have figured to become Superbowl Champs, eh?

Therre are football team owners crying that they can't fill their stadiums. Well, let me tell you something. It's not the inflated ticket prices, it's not the fact that their team isn't going to the Superbowl ...it's because the team isn't playing a man's game.

Make me a head coach and these would be my rules:

*Never, ever kneel the frikkin ball with time on the clock. I don't care if you're up by 1 point on your own 1 yard line with 20 seconds on the clock. People come to see you play. Snap the ball and give the crowd those 20 seconds they're paying for.

*Shove the prevent defense where the sun don't shine. Make the opponent earn every inch of that field they want to try and take.

*Celebrate! I don't care if they fine you into bankruptcy ... when you get into the endzone, celebrate! At the end of the game, lift your coach into the air and scream, "You da man!"

*Make the game exciting. Let's see some flea flickers, reverses, fake punts, naked bootlegs, halfback options, the works. Keep the opponent's defense on their toes and backpedaling. When you need one yard for a first down or TD, put in some guy that makes Refridgerator Perry look like MiniMe, and give him the ball.

*Play the guys with Heart, the guys who don't even know what they're getting paid, the guys who hit a tackle dummy like it's Adolf Hitler reincarnated. Draft these kinds of players, grab these guys out of free agent pools, yank them off street corners if you have to, but always look for those guys who give it 100 percent every time.

*The head coach doesn't always have a say in this next one, but it's just as important. DO the deals. Get guys signed and into the right frame of mind. Don't have Jimmy Smith sitting out with season about to open. It makes your team owner look like a clown.
