I just dont see the point in drafting a person who will sit on the bench for you every single week except week 4. You have Brady. You're whole idea is predicated on the fact that he will carry you and you dont need RB's...so I dont see the reasoning behind it.
I guess I will have to be enlightened during the season....because to me...you might as well have pulled a play out of Minnesota's playbook and let your draft time expire and let someone else pick.
Sorry for the delay.
I think LS2 summed it up well. Although it is small it knocks the caliber of QB down a bit and it makes me stronger in week 4. I also mentioned that Ricky Williams was the next RB that I wanted to take and I still got him along with Sidney Rice at WR. I almost took Schaub in round 9 also, but I wanted to acquire some depth at WR. Honestly, if I could go back and have known how this draft was going to go and how long people were going to wait before they started taking their QB I would have drafted McFadden in round 4, Hass in round 5 and McNabb in round 6 and then Shockey in round 7 (If I had known he was going to play for the Saints). At that point I would definitely be trying to trade McNabb or Hass for a running back by midseason, unless everyone colludes against me, which I don't see happening because I perceive everyone as honest competitors.
Don't see the point of drafting someone who will be sitting on your bench? Did you see how many people drafted 4 running backs in the first 7 rounds? That is the reason Hass was even there for me to take. I had filled pretty much all my needs before I drafted him. The only need I had was at Running back and the guy I wanted I still got.
