Actually it was cocaine... I echo the sentiments though. ;-)


Yeah they got the Mary Jane from Ricky Williams. ;-D



I was just gonna say that... But in a joking way of course becasue Ricky Williams is the man... Ive always thought that Funston was a goof... That denver thing really boggles my mind. :-P

I was in a TSN Mock draft with Brendan Roberts and asked him.

He said Funston left ESPN (Bristol) to go to Yahoo (Cali) to be closer to his home, which I think is in Seattle. Also said Yahoo wanted to ramp up their fantasy production so he was a good fit--hey, they never said they wanted GOOD fantasy production.

Did it ever occur to Funston that even if Denver finished 1st in rushing in the whole league, it might be split up between all their RB's?

McNabb in the 6th
McNair in the 4th.

One of the reasons I never end up with a top5 QB is because they're all gone by the 3rd round in most drafts, and that's just too early for a QB, but someone always does it. Though that's still way too low for those guys, I think the only thing this draft got right is that the first 3 rounds should not be used for QBs.

That being said, what imbecile takes Trent Green while passing up McNabb, McNair, and Hasselback?

T. Jones in the 3rd round just blows my mind...

After seeing this mock, a monster bidding war should commence. Seriously the FFC should get a 10 person panel and just destroy these fools.

TJ Duckett? This pick put me off of Fantasy Football.

If you are drafting in a league with a group of guys who are FF smart and believe in the stud RB theory (who doesn't), then the first 3 or 4 rounds of this mock draft looks very real and practical.

Over half the teams had 3 RBs by the 4th round.

In every league, the pressure of "your on the clock" will make someone take Trent Green or E Moulds over J Horn, S Smith, A Bouldin, C Johnson, etc...

but,

There is no explanation for M. Westbrook going in the second round before the next 10 picks.

They should just pull 10 random people from the cafe and we can do a better mock draft for free.

We already have multiple times.

The only thing is, if you go overboard (like they obviously did), you allow some smart drafters to clean up and have top 3 stars at every position. Look at twominutewarning.com, that guy is STACKED!

McNabb
Alexander
Faulk
Mason
Coles
Shockey

Good luck going head to head with him any given week. Just about any team is the underdog to him every week.

Same goes for Y! Sports Romig. Holmes, Culpepper and Holt. There's a three-headed monster if I ever saw one.
