BTW - Swiper, nice team bro. gotta love the #1/#2 guys at every single position. can't complain about that.


Grassy-ass man. I have worked hard on this team over the years. Hopefully I can get the title again. It's been 2 years now since I had the trophy in my hands.

Chris Brown at #6 already? Don't think I would put him that high yet.

After 1 or 2 weeks, the DBs will realize that they are giving up lots of penalty yardage and are going to start backing off and allowing route runners and speedsters to get open, producing more numbers. It may happen more right at the beginning, but I say that the DBs play off the reciever more because of this, which will mean easier catches and better YAC.


I agree with Sweetness (great name by the way!) in that eventually it will mean more yac and therefore make the receiving position one of the deepest in recent memory. That also means that unless you get one of the big 3 recievers (Moss, Harrison or Holt) then don't bother with receivers for a while because there will be a bunch to choose from who will be productive. Remember the 11th commandment - thou shalt get RB's early.

Your T.O.'s are still going to put up the same numbers, but guys like Santana Moss and Steve Smith who make their money off of simply outrunning the coverage will be able to put up the same if not better numbers, early in the season, as your T.O.'s and Andre Johnson's...
;-D I think everyone will get some boost from this but they really may as well call this the Marvin Harrison rule. After the AFC championship game last year it was apparent something was coming. The guys that win at least short term are the small guys that have a tougher time getting off the line at the WR spot. I forsee the DBs having to back off like 34 was saying and giving these little waterbugs the cushion they need to get off the line and start their routes.

As a Marvin owner, that rule is fine by me.

This is even more proof that this years FF season will be more based on luck than any other in the past.
