  1. With all due respect, foot problems is one of the only things Parker and Julio have in common. Different plane of athletic ability thus owners will accept a hell of a lot more potential risk on a guy like Julio (or DT before that with the Achilles) than Parker.
  2. Ended up with zero shares in Parker. Didn't see the big upside in his game, so was really not in the loop when it came to this foot thing. Did most folks who drafted him at 1.5/1.6 know this was happening?
  3. Told my wife last night Julio may score 40. She didn't know what the hell that meant and looked at me funny. He was close.
  4. Crystal clear to me that Floyd's a top 10 dynasty player.
  5. I've been with DirecTV for five years. In my first year, Sunday Ticket was free. For the subsequent four years, I have gotten Sunday Ticket comped. I simply go directly to cancellations where the call center people have the stroke to give it you for free. You may get to someone in cancellations who can only give you half off, do not settle. Tell them you will likely call to cancel later in the day and need to call a competitor for pricing. The next time you call the cancellations you are bound to have someone who can comp it in full, when you tell them this chain of events: - I called DTV cancellations earlier - Guy said he could only give me half off - I just want to be treated as well as a new customer, that is only fair - When he and I got off the phone, I called a competitor for pricing - So now I am calling back to cancel services and go with them, they don't offer a year contract either - DTV will fold and give you Sunday Ticket - Be clear that you are NOT agreeing to a contract extension, they will also fold and comp you the Ticket without another year agreement Good luck
  6. Supplement your morning coffee with . Beware of morning wood.
  7. Got mine added yesterday for free. Since joining DirecTV 5 years ago, I've had to pay $0 for Sunday Ticket. I pay on time and they know I am a sucker for $5.99 new release movies cause I'm too lazy for Red Box.
  8. "Rocketman" starring Cordarrelle Patterson
  9. At 25 and two years running with the thoroughbreds, at least we do not have to defend Dez' standing in the hyper elite. Dez Bryant 2012 - 92 grabs, 1382 yards (86.4 yards per game, 15.0 yards per catch, 12 TDDez Bryant 2013 - 93 grabs, 1233 yards (77.1 yards per game, 13.3 yards per catch, 13 TD Dez has dropped a little Skittles weight, Scott Linehan comes to town, Terrance Williams has another offseason to develop, a (hopefully) improved offensive line, and Linehan comes to town to move Dez around the field like a chess board. It won't take much of a change at all for Dez to continue his ladder climb. Dez Bryant 2014 - 106 grabs, 1550 yards (96.9 yards per game, 14.6 yards per catch, 15 TD This is the type of #### kings do.
  10. Here's the most direct suggestion I've read on "Patterson is the #1". Agree or parse at your discretion: Apparently you stopped reading any post that don't agree with you a long time ago. You asked for this, got it and then chose to ignore it. I'm well aware there are people who believe Jennings is to still the WR1. Funny that Jennings doesn't seem to think he is, no?I never said that Patterson would equal his YPR from last year. I predicted a nice drop, actually. You keep saying that Patterson doesn't have down field skills but isn't simply isn't true. He does and flashed those skills latest season as well as in college. He needs refining on his downfield route running. There is a difference. You want to bet on 1200/11 as if it this the baseline we are talking about. I just flat out told you in that post that I fully acknowledge I/we are being optimistic. You are creating a stawman here. If he really wanted to make a bet and put his balls on the line, he wouldn't set the over/under this high. Happy to bet someone $50 on CP having 1200 total yards and 8. I didn't set the numbers. Did you read the previous posts? I will happily take your bet (no return yards), because he will not get 1200 yards my friend. No return yards needed. You have a deal.

  12. 85, 1000 (11.7 YPC), 8 TD, 200 rush, 2 TD = 265 PPR
  13. Agreed. The only concern for me is injury due to his kamakazee style of play. Dude is beast. While it is a minor concern, Megatron is my only concern haha. As much as I love Dez, I don't think he can top Calvin this year with TD normalization...WR2 on the other hand.. Calvin Johnson: 110 catches / 1800 yards / 12 TD = 410 PPR / 25.6 PPR PPG Dez Bryant: 100 catches / 1500 yards / 14 TDs = 334 PPR / 21.3 PPR PPG Think the math should look something like this: Calvin = 362 ppr Dez = 334 ppr Dez is going to be keeping some good company this year! Yep, thanks for the fix. Calvin PPG 22.6.

  15. I think he makes as much sense as anyone else once you get past Martin and Richardson. I think it's a big step down from those two though. Spiller isn't as young as you might think. He played four years in college and took a little while to get rolling in the NFL. He turns 26 in two months. He's about the same age as Jonathan Stewart and Rashard Mendenhall even though he came into the league 2 years later. I think he can have 3-4 peak years before his career is over, but his game is predicated on speed and that's usually the first trait to disappear. You don't see too many 30 year old sprinters winning Olympic gold. I also have some doubts about his ability to be a high volume back since he has a slight, almost WR-like body type. I don't quite rank him on my list of untouchable dynasty assets, but he's in the next group below with guys like Victor Cruz and LeSean McCoy. As for Mathews, I look at him the way a lot of people look at Murray and McFadden. You know he's probably going to miss time every season, but when he plays he can be a solid starter for you. He's only a year removed from a top 10 RB finish. He can catch the ball. He's got a rare size/speed combo. He has some warts, but he's not without value either. I have grabbed him this offseason in a couple leagues where I needed a startable RB and couldn't afford to get a truly top level player. Spiller vs. Mathews was another one you were quite comfortable that Mathews was the better RB. Have you taken some time to watch CJ Spiller play? He is far from a WR-like body type, and far from simply a sprinter. You said he was like Reggie Bush coming out, is Reggie WR-like body type? Sure, Spiller has elite athleticism, but just as importantly, he is damn instinctive. You mention that he won't be the same guy at 30, but what running back is? Oh well, at least you've got him in the second group of dynasty assets now instead of outside of top 25 backs.
  16. 1. Go down the add/remove services, then sports package avenue 2. what Sunday Ticket deals for a long-time customer? 3. Better yet, what Sunday Ticket deals for a Cowboys fan? (he too, a Cowboys fan) -- Caution: If you live in Dallas this is not a valid reason - Ensure he understands you want to see all of Cam/Spiller/Julio while also watching Dez 5. You really need the Ticket or else you plan to explore other opportunities. He can't help you, but he knows who can - The Fixer 6. Calmly tell The Fixer the truth about DirecTV, included but limited to: - Discuss other area package options at low prices, for me Time Warner - You understand DTV has the best customer service though - Lady in the house hates the remote functionality (matter of fact, I hate it too) - It does go out in a storm or even light rain, and the last technician told you that you must call when it goes out - Friday at 8:00pm trying to get some action with a Quiet Storm, it's the last thing Iyouant to do - There are now cheaper alternatives to Sunday football - do you really need more than Siciliano? - You came to DirecTV for the Ticket but can't justify paying for it anymore with the above short-falls - Fixer tells you he loves the Ticket as well and checks from his phone while delivering bibles at church, here is when you say, yes, life without MAX is not a life worth living 7. The Fixer may make you pay $150 over 4 months but Fixer then credits you back total of $350 over 2yr, in the end the Fixer is paying you $200 good luck dudes
  17. I'm calling tomorrow, only after getting hyped up listening to some Mobb Deep. $110 is not a bad deal at all, but I will not be settling for $110 even with Max (the economy is so crushing, take mercy on me, DTV!). Free or bust.
  18. So how many slots do you dump him down with the injury concerns?
  19. Ok, let's talk about risk vs upside. On one hand you have a 25 year old who exploded onto the scene in his 2nd year (out of a small school no less) and looked dangerous pretty much all the time. On the other hand:17 WR Torrey Smith, BAL (never caught more than 50 balls, Shorts had 47 in last nine games) - fun with numbers 22 WR Antonio Brown, PIT (seven TDs in three years/141 catches - Shorts had 7 on first 57 recs) - this too 23 WR Justin Blackmon, JAX (Robinson, Koren) - his ability is much higher than Koren, the operative question is his head, and obviously a legit one, but he showed what he's capable of in the 2nd half too - higher ceiling 24 WR Jeremy Maclin, PHI (Shorts had more yards last year than Maclin has ever had in a season) - agreed 25 WR Greg Jennings, MIN (Christian Ponder) - Jennings does great work in the short/intermediate game, Ponder's issues are downfield, less concerned with Ponder hurting him than most 26 WR Wes Welker, DEN (32 year old system player in a new system) - I like him more for the next 2 years 28 WR DeAndre Hopkins, HOU (unproven rookie -- though I like him) - no argument, but I'd rather have Nuke 30 WR Josh Gordon, CLE (unproven player, terrible QB play, history with pot) - to do what he did last year with terrible coaching, poor QB play, so much youth around him, not playing in 2011, and missing most of preseason was very impressive, you're missing the boat here 31 WR Cordarrelle Patterson, MIN (unproven player, Christian Ponder, doubts about WR skill) - agreed 33 WR Kenny Britt, TEN (is it 50 days since last arrest yet?) - agreed 34 WR Danny Amendola, NE (injury concerns) - I'd rather have a guy like him, I feel comfortable knowing I have #2 production whenever he plays 37 WR DeSean Jackson, PHI (103-1661-6 -- in last two years) - I think you're under estimating his role with Chip Kelly 38 WR Mike Williams, TB (no upside) - agreed 39 WR Reggie Wayne, IND (35 years old) - same as Welker 40 WR Kendall Wright, TEN (terrible Y/C most likely kiss of death) - intermediate routes needed development out of school and deep ball capabilities neutralized with inaccurate Locker throwing the ball...too early to make a conclusion here I'd probably take Shorts ahead of some guys not on this list as well, but IMO ranking him 41 on account of 'risk' is just plain silly given the landmines above. He's a 25 year old currently projected inside the top 25/30 for 2013 and unlike most of the guys ahead of him he's already shown he can produce in a bad situation. Kinda like the argument I've been having with Hartline, it's about upside. Do you see Shorts as anything more than a good WR3? In the interim, no. Long term, maybe. But I think there are other guys here with even higher ceilings. Given the depth of the WR pool I'm more willing to throw more darts at riskier players expecting one or two to stick. There's alsoa great class on the way, so if your guys flame out reinforcements are waiting.Right. I don't want top 25/30 stats if that's close to the upside. I'll take 25/40 stats with potential for top 10. Upside of which is all opinion. Shorts is certainly more valuable than several of the players ranked ahead, above though, I just don't have an issue with the number ranking.
  20. I'm sure he'll get carries, but the torch has clearly been passed. Fred is on the wrong side of 30, coming off two injuries, and perhaps most importantly, the team is not coached by Chan Gailey anymore. Marrone has no prior allegiance to him. As a Spiller owner, I'm kinda still forced to roster F Jax.....but if I weren't a Spiller owner I'm not sure F Jax should even be rostered in a dynasty league. i go back and forth on rostering fred. he has been offered to me for late 3rds this off-season and i've passed. i'd roster if free, but wouldn't pay for him.
  21. how do you look in the mirror trading him?????
