  1. Cassel may make more of Patterson this year, granted. He showed value with Cassel at the helm and may have more pending new QB in two years time. But that seems steep for a guy who has shown "flashes" and mostly on special teams. Bell and DJax will put up numbers now and for a few years. Patterson is a long term bet ...
  2. I'm a big supporter of Watkins, but c'mon. Agreed. Take out Jordy or the 1.11 and you can at least justify doing it. Take out Jordy AND 1.11 and it makes more sense. Even at that: giving up a future and likely very good RB (granted some risk yet), probable big time WR as soon as THIS year, and two more first round picks. If THAT wasn't good enough ... you can have 1.01.
  3. You undersold Floyd to fill the need ... you could have likely found more, especially if PPR. At least a pick for a kicker.
  4. Dynasty PPR Team A gave: Marcus Wheaton, PIT WR 2.10 Team B gave: Ben Tate, CLE RB Team A needed a RB badly ... Tate is RB2 behind LeVoen Bell on the roster. Has 3-4 tier 2 WRs. Team B had Tate as RB4 behind Peterson, Forte, Foster and also has Gerhart. Was looking for WR youth to add to K. Allen, Dem. Thomas, Fitz, Bowe.
  5. Last rumors have him signing in Arizona to be RBBC with Ellington. (Still worries over Ellington's durability.) I actually expect he has plenty left in the tank. He may be 27, but as little as he has played, his wear and tear is more like a 25 y\o or less.
  6. At first glance I actually said out loud "What the hell?" but then I seen it is was a 2 qb league. I would still take Bell and the picks by a mile, but it isn't quite as bad. I had the same exact experience. 2 QB leagues makes it a little less shocking, but I'd still take the Bell side and use one of those picks on a QB. I'd much prefer Bell, Bridgewater and Watkins to Foles and Jackson. ETA: and I'm a huge Foles' fan. Count me as shocked too .... even in a two QB set, gave up too much value for a third tier QB and second tier WR. Especially when a likely 1st tier WR (even if a year out) and a [robable QB starter could have been had with the picks. You can't toss RBs that are not stuck in a RBBC so easily either.
  7. Assuming you are rebuilding, a great deal for you. White is aging and a recent DUI won't make him friends in management in ATL. MJD may have something left, but where will he play and it better have a decent O-line. That said, I am leery of trading known commodities for guesswork so late in the first round. Even if those commodities are on their last legs. The deal screams one team's youth movement versus a team needing depth making a run at the title.
  8. Added to the collection recently with a SIG SAUER P250
  9. Add washers for weight 1\3 back from the nose.Add graphite dust to the axles and inside your axle frames.
  10. I received mine last week, very cool - already wore it once and I'll get pics up soon Long sleeve exchange this Fall?
  11. Geez, since you put it that way . . . first one second one Well played sir. Well played.
  12. If by great you mean huge, I'd agree. It has the potential to be a gold mine, but all the history with support of teams by that area leads me to "meh". It's an area that's indifferent about professional sports for sure. It doesn't appear to be rabid about college sports like it needs to be for the purposes of this discussion. I've been wrong before and could be wrong here I suppose.I think Atlanta is a big-time CFB market, chock-full of SEC grads. It's just not necessarily partial to one school in particular, similar to Dallas.Right. The NYT found that 41% of the Atlanta population watched college football on Saturdays ( http://thequad.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/09/19/the-geography-of-college-football-fans-and-realignment-chaos/ )....while cities like Dallas were in the 20's. UGA also not long ago had the largest local TV deal in the country. So there are eyeballs to be had....but between the UGA dominance and the transient nature of the city...not sure what GT's piece of that is. Historically, the metro area, Savannah, and the Carolinas is where the GT alumni seem to centralize. (UGAg followers are everywhere ... and about 50% actually went to the school. ...) But, there are alumni of schools from just about everywhere in ATL that draw to the CFB television numbers.
  13. Looks like it is a hit, I am sure we will do it next summer.As suggested above ... long sleeve tee-shirts this fall.
  14. Kinda wondered the same thing. I thought perhaps it was just a round about way of saying "when there was a conference championship game". Personally, I like the season long title over a one game indicator.Correct - Championship Game.Point being, win your conference championship game before being so concerned about National Championships. And yes, winning 11 championships is a big deal. Agreed. But, to use their record from years ago (with one exception) as the point of contention with what the ACC is now seems like whining. "We were sooooooo great." It's a total cost issue ... football is just the best revenue generator. I almost wish the ACC would call their bluff ... take in UCONN and Rutgers, maybe Notre Dame to make 16 with FSU's departure? If the raid of UCONN and Rutgers was successful, I think Notre Dame finally falls in to a conference. But to analyze the Big 12's interest, why FSU? Football program? Florida foothold? What TV market are you getting in to with FSU? The whole state? That might make it understandable. Same question for Clemson. If the Big 12 is looking to take from the ACC, why not Georgia Tech and the Atlanta market over Clemson? The whole Big 12 taking from the ACC premise seems weak and more driven by the schools than the Big 12 conference.
  15. FSU, Miami, and Clemson's problems are simple, win games and become marketable. Since having to win the conference championship on the field, FSU and Clemson have won one each. At least Clem's son has played in more than one championship game. The same can't be said for FSU. - Miami hasn't even played in the championship game. - FSU spent millions during their reign and never put any of it back in to the program, spent millions in managing NCAA problems, and now complain about negative cash flow because of ACC management. Clemson is just "willing to listen", and why not? Clem's son, and even my Yellow Jackets, were willing to listen to the SEC for the last 15 years too, yet no one has come banging on the door. Neither offer a new TV market or teh opportunity for new revenue. Florida may be a TV market for the Big 12, but then why didn't the conference come knocking last year or the year before when schools like West Virginia, TCU, Louisville, and Cincinnati are being courted? The Big 12 can't afford more "big school" egos. (They already have Texas. Who by the way doesn't like sharing either.) To me, it all sounds like leverage plays to get the ACC to loosen up some purse strings. (See Texas ... Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech leverage play with the PAC 10.)
