On Brady:

Brady is certainly not undervalued. It's not like New England is suddenly gonna drastically change their play style and Brady will throw 40+ TDs. Not gonna happen.

can't remember when (awhile back) but I once said to play David Carr over Trent Green. :-o

I've talked about this a lot, but in 2005 I had LT2, Jamal Lewis, Marc Bulger, Steve Smith, one other top WR, a top-three DEF and some warm body at TE and K. I crushed the season scoring record in my league (I actually did it three years in a row), but the best finish I had was fourth in those years. In 2005 I finished fifth and out of the money.

Fantasy football is such a crapshoot it's unbelievable. I refuse to get sucked in to it too deeply anymore.


I usually just ask you guys about football stuff and blame you if it doesn't turn out good. :-D

I hear you about the crapshoot. I didn't pay attention nearly all year last year except for the last couple weeks of the playoffs (yeah, I made the playoffs somehow) and won my league that I've been in now for 8 years. That shouldn't happen.

Oh you guys don't even want to see my predictions from last year. Pretty much every single one was so dead wrong I feel like a fool. Well I am a fool anyway but that's besides the point. :-b

My 2007 predictions were so bad I'm not even going to post in the 2008 predictions forum. I always love going back to my first few posts. Such good times.

^Truthiness. :-D

Knapp's having a hard time right now. I think it's because he chose a struggling Yankee prospect to base his team name off of. !+) :-D ;-)

Fantasy baseball definitely more skill but I still love fantasy football. Fact that it's a crapshoot makes it so fun :-D
