  1. We wouldn't have as many injuries if we slowed down these MRI's.
  2. re: R. Harrison JAX
  3. Any thoughts as to who takes Ronnie Harrison's spot on the Jags?
  4. Joe, I've been subscribing since 2003 and have played IDP since 1993. I used to come here first for IDP info and rarely looked elsewhere. But Moniker is right. The IDP content has gone way down hill. Now don't get me wrong, I love Norton's articles, but that seems to be all you have now. You used to have 4 or 5 guys that would cover IDP and offer different takes, including Jene's expertise that was never replaced. Take a look under current articles. Outside of the 8-part IDP Guru articles and camp report, there are a grand total of 2 other articles. You used to at least have a handful. Currently, there is another site devoted to IDP that is cranking out at least one article every day. I realize that IDP is still a smaller segment of the overall industry, but when my league starts 9 IDP's versus 8 Offensive players, info and data on the IDP side is critical. I feel like if Footballguys is going to continue being the premier leader, you really need to look at beefing this back up. Just my two cents.
  5. The night is black, without a moon The air is thick and still The vigilantes gather on The lonely torchlit hill Features distorted in the flickering light Faces are twisted and grotesque Silent and stern in the sweltering night The mob moves like demons possessed Quiet in conscience, calm in their right Confident their ways are best The righteous rise With burning eyes Of hatred and ill-will Madmen fed on fear and lies To beat and burn and kill They say there are strangers who threaten us Our immigrants and infidels They say there is strangeness to danger us In our theaters and bookstore shelves That those who know what's best for us Must rise and save us from ourselves Quick to judge Quick to anger Slow to understand Ignorance and prejudice And fear walk hand in hand
  6. Gally got it right. With every sack, the player gets credit for a tackle as well as a sack. Occasionally, the stadium scoring crew will throw in a TFL as well...all for the same play. So, we decided to give the majority of credit for making a tackle, and if was a sack, they get the add-on points for the big play. BTW, 6 pts per tackle is for DB's. LB's get 5 and 2.5 for a sack or TFL. All that said, I didn't mean to hijack the thread. If you all want to discuss IDP scoring in depth, I can make another thread.
  7. Oohh...good point. We added the "Edge" position this year for just that reason. Combined defensive ends with outside LB's in a 3-4 defense. Excited to see if it works well.
  8. Yeah, but we do like the week-to-week consistency better than depending on big-play. That's the beauty of this game. Endless ways to play it. As long as we all have fun with it.
  9. So, your league is basically big-play dependent. That makes sense as to why Kam would be ranked much lower. We do: 6 pts for a tackle/assist 3 pts for a sack/tfl 5 pts for forced fumble 5 pts for a fumble recovery 10 pts for an INT 6 pts for a pass defended
  10. Yeah, I had just come to that conclusion myself. We score tackles and assists the same, so it probably makes a big difference as Kam had a lot of assists. No worries- makes for good conversation.
  11. Hmmm...I just went back and checked. In our league, Kam finished: 2011- #5 Overall DB 2012- #34 Overall DB 2013- #7 Overall DB 2014- #39 Overall DB 2015- #11 Overall DB 2016- #6 Overall DB 2017- IR'd/Career done So, 4 out of 6 years he finished at #11 or better, and three of those were #7 or better. I think that's pretty studly. At least better than ok. I could be wrong, but I still think Adams will still maintain "stud" status. Not to mention Wagner and Wright have a good bit of mileage on them.
  12. Yep, I discovered the same thing. On a sack, a player tends to get credit for a tackle, a sack and sometimes a TFL (depending on stadium crew). The other thing I discovered is that tackles, assists and TFL's are the only consistent stat. The top LB's only average a sack about every game or two. If they're lucky, they get 2 INT's per year and no clear way to predict when they will come. For us, 86% of IDP scoring comes from tackles/assists and TFL's. Big plays do get big points, but they are random.
  13. It is, but. like I said, it equalizes the positions almost to a T. Natural exception being RB's due to scarcity. Over the last four years on PPG Avg: Average of the top 5 by position: QB- 60.8 PPG RB- 56.8 PPG WR/TE- 56.0 PPG Def Edge- 55.5 PPG LB- 54.9 PPG DB- 56.4 PPG Average of starters by position: QB- 55.2 PPG RB- 46.2 PPG WR/TE- 46.3 PPG Def Edge- 46.0 PPG LB- 44.9 PPG DB- 45.2 PPG Average of top 32 by position: QB- 50.9 PPG RB- 41.3 PPG WR/TE- 46.5 PPG Def Edge- 46.0 PPG LB- 46.6 PPG DB- 46.5 PPG QB's are slightly higher and RB's fall off hard after the first 16 or so, but I think that's pretty normal for most any league. But the value line for WR/TE/Edge/LB/DB is almost identical. It works for us.
  14. I'm not so sure about that. Kam Chancellor was a stud safety behind those same LB's. I tend to believe that Adams will have that same role and value.
