Figured this is better than flooding the sign up thread.
Todd's team is already horrible.
I've already won.
The only winning move is not to play.
In all seriousness, my only goal is to build a team I'd like to see out on the field together as a fan.
Ken Dorsey, Willis Mcgahee etc???
That would have been fine like 12 years ago. You drafting Maurice Clarett this year? He should be finished with classes by now....
IF I'm the team I'm hoping for???
I'll be calling up the Raiders and offering one of my 1st's for Terrell Pryor.
If we play a college GM game...hell yeah. Give me some Andre Johnson too.

Hopefully people take into account the team each GM started with rather than looking just at overall end results.
Not to mention, any strong defensive effort should be given its due respect rather than focusing excessively on QB and receivers IMO. So far there have been 5 Super Bowls pitting the #1 Offense vs #1 Defense, and defense holds a 4-1 advantage. Pair that stat with the NFL's top defenses posting a 12-3 overall SB record compared to 10-8 for the NFL's top offenses. So, top offenses make more trips to the dance but top defenses win more hardware and head to head. Just sayin.
No Bdogtitan11, Schisno or Sean yet huh?
We will get it filled up sooner rather than later I think. Ususualy by the rnd there are more people wanting to play than teams.
Though it would be cool to hand out teams soon and let thr new sign ups fight for scraps
Way to air your jaded laundry out.
Good points. I tried to puy bad-average teams on my list mostly because I didn't want my job to be easy. I definitely know what aspects of my team I want to focus on in order to create a winner.
sent them all PM's with no replies. I see that schisno has been here since the PM was sent, can only assume he read it and is thinking about it. The other two have not been here since before I sent them a PM. If you guys know people (who don't visit this board) that would be interested, feel free to invite them over. If they have a favorite team that is not one of the popular teams that people are picking from, I'd be very inclined to give them that team (unless they don't want it).
Down to 11.
I wanted BPK to participate but I think his inbox is full so no idea if he's interested.
Update: Down to 10
The AFC East. Black sheep of GML.
Pretty much. Hoping the rest fills out quick, I'm looking forward to beginning to formulate plans for my roster and also seeing which guys got which teams respectively.
First time player here, though watched from the sidelines last season. Should be interesting...
Down to what 9 spots now? Hope you enjoy it FF7273
Welcome aboard. You're in for a good time. It's both fun and entertaining.
That makes me re-think where I have the Raiders placed on my list
Welcome to you and Steve Mo.
I've always thought voting should be done like the playoffs, you vote on each division winner then add two WC's. Then we vote game for game by matchup.
Some of us could even provide game plans against our opponent etc.
Just a thought.....I kinda feel like a college football team stuck in the old style if crowning a championship.
I think the issue in the past when this was brought up, is making sire everyone actually votes.
You would like to think grown men can honor such a minor commitment.
True but as you know what should happen and what actually happens are almost always two very different things
Rookies should aim for AFC East or teams no one wants. You won't win a tie breaker vs established players.
Yea, new sheriff in town. And he's not an obese Bills fan.
I always thought about doing something similar also. We could even do tr regular voting and do something like this additionally to see how it works out.
Rookies are doing great so far. Just because u were stuck with Buffalo doesnt mean every rookie will fall into that. The Dolphins raffle has kind of offset the rookie thing this year so far. Some rooks are getting their first choice so far. We will see how it ends up of course.
Big welcome to all rookies!!!
Damn I can't wait until we fill this out and get our teams. Thats good to hear though.
So what 7 spots left?
7 is correct.
surprised Paul can count that high! Usually it's 1,2,5, guacamole! Good progress buddy. haha
What teams haven't been chosen in a first spot so far (not including Dolphin lists).
NE, Jets, Bills, Steelers, Baltimore, Tennessee, Denver, Kansas City, San Diego (Really? Multiple Oakland's...but wide open AFC West?).
Cowboys, Giants, Redskins, Lions and Bears Oh My!
Seahawks and 49'ers.
Really some good choices left on the board with all the folks going Dolphins lottery.
Some of those teams are just to loaded that its not fun to take them. Ranking the teams in my top 10 was hard as I really don't have a preference for my top 3-4 teams.
Bills are actually alot more attractive this year then last. With Manual, Woods, Kiko they added some young talent last season.
I am tracking who is getting what (already) and so far, everyone not putting the Dolphins at #1 have a team on their top 4.
10 1's (it'll be 11 once the Dolphins are awarded)
In meetings all day today with prospective sponsors.
Not bad. Figure the list will help out any of the remaining folk coming and maybe have those 2 4's rethink their spots ;p
