  1. Old enough that I have to get up at least once a night to pee.
  2. I'm 53. I think of more interest would be how your use of FBG has changed or no changed with your age. In my 40s I was a daily visitor year round. Now in my 50s I am becoming one of those dreaded visitors only during the football season. I don't think it's an age thing but that among other things has changed since I crossed the 50 year line.
  3. I think those comparing her situation to a QB of an NFL team are over simplifying this. A QB mentally off might create an ill timed turnover. Have you watched what this young lady does in these events. The high flying twisting and tumbling leaves you vulnerable for a pretty significant injury if you can't mentally prepare yourself. It is dangerous. I am certainly disappointed that she can't represent her country at the highest level but if you are off this can be very dangerous.
  4. I would think they would be getting very little in return. I can't see a real reason for Green Bay to give up much of an asset for Cobb when they could just sign a free agent like Golden Tate. I would guess something like a 5th for Cobb and a 6th where they are in essence sliding down a round. I suppose if GB is picking late and HOU is early it might be a little more separation.
  5. Another kick in the teeth for idp players using footballguys. The site just isn't willing to put a lot of resources into idp.
  6. I traded the pick for the players.I'm not sure who the other owner is after but I will say he is incredibly deep and has been trying to trade Lockett for a long time with no success. He may have simply decided he needed to cash out some of his crazy depth on his bench for a younger prospect before they lose value? For me it was an easy choice. I took over this team a year ago and started a rebuild that had me coming into the draft with 16 picks, including 4 in round 1. Lockett becomes my #1 WR and Waller my #1 TE and I still have some good young guys I drafted last year and a boat load of picks to work with.
  7. 12 team ppr. QB,RB,WR,WR,TE,Flex,Flex,Flex. Pick 1.11 for Tyler Lockett and Darren Waller.
  8. Are you OK with us being critical of you posting a link that doesn't work? 😉
  9. I like the kid but like said above he is buried and when he gets his opportunity it is probably post Brady era.
  10. Spot on Pipes. They have been fortunate to hit on Favre and Rodgers and their QB spot has probably been the best in the NFL if you look at all 3 decades in total yet their approach is questionable in my mind with not enough urgency to win now. So yeah, we can boast look how well we did with Favre and Rodgers and sure Love could be the next great one but he isn't like Rodgers who went from being talked about as potentially #1 overall pick his rookie year to the slide. Love wasn't considered that high and my view of him was he was the one QB who might go in round 1 to a team desperate for a QB and willing to reach. Heck, it didn't have to be a WR in round 1 for me even though I question that position, I would have even been happy if they had traded up and took one of those two ILB that went just after they took Love after the way SF gouged them last year. When you have an aging Rodgers I say make every pick make your team immediately better for the years Rodgers is still there. You have a HOF QB with only one proven weapon to use. Sure they will probably add some WR later but for one damn time spend an early pick on an elite target for him.
  11. The trade for Kizer. The move up to draft the UCLA kid, I forget his name at the moment, prior to that. I'm in the camp that feels a lot of Rodgers' years were wasted by not looking at immediate needs over trying to find his successor.
  12. Why does this club keep spending capital on the Rodgers replacement when they could be building around him? Horrible.
  13. That seems like a very big IF at this point as others have said that is going to be a tough contract to move and Melvin Gordon a free agent. I drafted Henderson in the 4th last year which based on FBG was an all out steal but he really didn't impress in preseason and didn't get much action in the regular season so if he were looking like a potential starter I would put him toward the back of the rookie RB that looked like they might start.
  14. If what the trade was is true I can only assume Hopkins has CV-19 and they are afraid it will spread to the whole team.
  15. The Kirksey signing tells me that with the money they threw out at the Smith brothers last year they couldn't afford to keep Martinez and Kirksey was the best available in the price range they were willing to spend at LB. I can't say I have ever seen him play. He has had some decent tackle numbers and injuries recently.
  16. I guesss Blake Martinez won't be back and we signed Kirksey. I think I'm OK with the move. It seems to me like the club really likes this sort of move of signing guys in their mid to later 20's to contracts taking them to about 30. Now I hope they are at least looking at Hooper or even Ebron at TE. I think they fit the same type of deal of signing free agents playing out their 20's.
  17. I will disagree about Hunt's floor being higher but only due to off the field stuff. His floor is really low. On the field I agree with you Dr. Dan
  18. This is why I actually don't mind trading down (especially after the first 20 picks) and either trading back in the present year draft or trading for the following year picks to pick up extra picks. More darts to throw. I personally prefer trading say a 2020 pick for two picks in 2021 because you usually don't have to trade back too far because you are willing to wait a year.
  19. I'm 52 and I never saw Gale Sayers play so I can't cast a fair vote. I'm guessing only a small minority here maybe saw enough of these guys playing. Maybe try going to the local senior citizens center and ask them? I honestly don't get why a poll is even here for this because I doubt very many reading this saw both of these guys play a lot.
  20. I was a high school wrestler when this one came out so that may be why I like it but I have always liked Vision Quest.
  21. Bumping this as we near the 2020 draft boards. I typically like to use the Bramel board as a guide for my idp drafts and this thread actual has a link back to 2018 & 2019.
  22. I think the guy in my league has been trying to trade Lockett for over a year and there isn't much interest. I agree that most see him as an asset declining in value so the owners holding him need to either hang on or be willing to discount him to move him.
  23. I actually kind of agree with you from the times I have seen Gordon play with the Chargers which isn't a lot but he has averaged about 45 catches per season in his career and has caught 3.34 passes per game. Not an elite pass catcher but decent.
