...I tried to condense this (Play Maker's post), but it's just a big 'ol run-on sentence...

Anyway, I won my league with Quincy Carter and Joey Harrington (drafted a little too early - Canacuna would have been a casualty of the Michael Vick injury had it not been for an overall solid draft) - not exactly the most envious position to be in. While having a stud QB is definitely ideal, you can win without 'em. RBs on the other hand... :-?

In your case, it probably should be. ;-)

lol Gotta love them Gators...and now that half of the Bears are Gator alums, all my fellow Chicagoans are starting to dig them too.


Heh, unfortunately alot of them (Ian Scott, Todd Johnson, etc) will probably never see the field. Btw, Ian was on one of my little league baseball teams way back in the day, and me and his dad (Randy) are pretty good friends. I talked to his brother (Alik, who plays for UF now) the other day.

Your statistics pretty much proved why RBs are the most highly sought after fantasy performers. The fact that there are 16 QBs in the top 25 shows that, in a 12 team league there is more than enough quality starting QBs, and more quality QBs than there is teams in the league. Meanwhile, with each team starting 2 RBs in typical leagues, as opposed to one QB, the quality pool is much thinner, which is why the 7 RBs that made that top 25 list are so coveted, because the drop off is so huge.

Hah, true about Ian and Todd, they were great college players though. If Rex can pan out, though, it will be all good. Alex Brown has impressed me.
Interesting about your relationship with the Scotts.
