I have to gloat a bit

Postby Arrowhead Nation » Thu Nov 06, 2003 5:08 pm

I must be the only guy on here whose team is awesome (7-2) that picked Corey Dillon (3rd round!!!) as a starting HB. Not only that but my other back is Garner #2 pick).....and this is a 16 team dynasty league we are talking about!

I figure that with all the talk about how Dillon is killing teams I would inject some positive vibes into the topic of the Halfback that used tobe Corey Dillon

I am 7-2 cuz I took Manning in rd one @ 11 overall...going aginst conventional wisdom of RB-RB.....I grabbed McGahee and Mike Bennett in rds 17-18 cuz everyone forgot (our draft was @ 9 PM...people got tired...it ws midnight when it ended!)

I traded for Dom Davis and I have Onterrio Smith as a #6 back now......and I also own Rudi Johnson.....I threw Bennett and WIllis on IR for the year and so now...man, next season...man talk about your lineup @ RB

I just had to gloat a bit since all I hear is Dillon sucks @#$#...DIllon #@###

So come opening Sunday next year I will have Dillon, Garner, McGahee, Bennett and Davis

You might have a good year next season because you are in a keeper league, but this season was still screwed over by Dillon. What about all the Dillon owners who aren't in a keeper league?

Thats why I never do anything except keeper leagues...its pointless to win when ya cant keep your roster...and in this case lets say you drafted Dillon, Warner, Faulk, and Edge...your screwed this year but there is hope for nezt season....I never do one-season only leagues cuz there is almost an aura oif it being a crapshoot every year...keeper leagues allow you to REALLY manage and maintain a team...and not be forcxed to win every week....

I had a guy in our inagural draft took Vick in the second round knowing he was hurt,....he conceded this year and is building for the future...

Obviously in a dynasty league where ya keep everyone...ya gotta be a pretty serious owner and sometimes people take a keeper league more seriously than other one season only leagues.....but it makes it more reality based.

Not to be mean or anything, but if Corey Dillion fell to the 3rd round in a 16 team league, then I'm not really surprised that your team is good.

Based on our point system...WR are just as equal as RB and QB...so we had one or two terrible picks....Grenn of KC went early as a homer pick and that guy is 1-8.....in the first round we had 9 RB 6 QB and 1 WR taken......

Our guy in first whose 8-1 has Alexander, Buckhalter, A. Smith and Betts as RB...but he has Brad Johnson at QB, and is loaded @ WR with Hines, Andre Johnson, S. Smith, K-Rob and Porter...we start 3 WR so he is loaded.....

What I am saying in a roundabout way is that there is so much parody that 15 out of 16 teams are competitive every wek (minus the guy who is 1-8.

It makes it so much like the NFL....and to be good...ya gotta be REALLY GOOD

Here was our first Rd.

1 1 LaDainian Tomlinson SD RB
1 2 Priest Holmes KC RB
1 3 Clinton Portis DEN RB
1 4 Ricky Williams MIA RB
1 5 Marshall Faulk STL RB
1 6 Deuce McAllister NO RB
1 7 Shaun Alexander SEA RB
1 8 Edgerrin James IND RB
1 9 Trent Green KC QB
1 10 Daunte Culpepper MIN QB
1 11 Peyton Manning IND QB
1 12 Travis Henry BUF RB
1 13 Rich Gannon OAK QB
1 14 Marvin Harrison IND WR
1 15 Donovan McNabb PHI QB
1 16 Tom Brady NE QB
