  1. Just to play Devil's advocate, I think there is a lot of skill that goes into the act of catching the ball. 1- A player has to adjust his route to the defense and be on the same wavelength as the QB. 2- A player then has to run the route correctly AND know when to break it off and do scramble drill. 3- He has to actually catch a ball being thrown at him at high velocity. 4- All while having one, two or even three defenders doing their very best to disrupt the catch. 5- Assuming he isn't tackled immediately, he then has to transition to a RB, tuck it under the correct arm, and try and
  2. When I re-read this, I meant to clarify that this was the average for the Top-5 at those positions, over the last 4 years. Sorry if there was any confusion. The top-5 QB's have averaged 14.51 first downs over the past four years. I have our scoring set for total first downs scored by that player. With MFL, you can set it to differentiate between passing, rushing, receiving or total first downs...so I don't have the answer for receiving-specific first downs. I'm not sure why you would limit it to only receptions, though. In my opinion, any first down achieved gives the player's te
  3. I just going to throw in my two cents. Our league went to adding first downs four years ago. We assigned 1 point for each first down. It went over so well that we increased it to two points...which enabled me to reduce PPR between the RB/WR and TE positions. For reference, we want the top players at each position to be roughly equivalent in scoring. 2017-2018 1 point per First Down 2 pts. per reception for RB 3 pts. per reception for WR 4 pts. per reception for TE Top 5 RB Avg- 57.23 PPG Top 5 WR Avg- 51.45 PPG Top 5 TE Avg- 52.67 PPG 2019-2020 2 points per Fir
  4. They won't get mine either. This past year has really soured me on the Republican party and It'll be a long time before I vote for someone with an R next to their name.
  5. 1- Rogue One/New Hope- I consider it one movie now. But this was the one that kicked it off. Saw it 24 times in the theater on it's original run. No other movie comes close to having the impact that this one did for me. Rogue One really grew on me after the second and third viewing and really like the "war-movie" feel of it. Excellent lead-in to a New Hope. 2- Empire- Just excellent in all phases. 3- Mandalorian- Really captures the true Star Wars feel in ways that I thought were lost. The emotions felt on the last episode were fantastic. Ashoka's episode was just as amazing to me.
  6. Had this discussion at work the other day. Here were my top two: I Believe in Father Christmas- U2 Little Drummer Boy- For King and Country I just can't get into the Christmas mood until I hear these two songs.
  7. My grandfather- Stoked my love about the three "F's" in life- Food, Football and Flying Spock (Leonard Nimoy)- My favorite fictional character that taught me that decisions based in logic have a MUCH higher degree of success than those made with emotion David Meyer- My first area manager that taught me the most about how to successfully run restaurants Neil Peart- His drive for perfection in something he loved was inspirational
  8. One more if you're still undecided, and it's a point that got my wife to vote for Biden (she's raised VERY conservative). Now that Trump has ramrodded through another SC Justice, it's no secret that he is going after Obamacare and I do fear that this will happen. I used to be against it, but life does have a way of changing your tune when it personally affects you. My son is 26 and still lives with us. He has a part-time job with Lowe's. He is Type-1 diabetic (as well as other issues, but that's a different discussion). This year, he had to get off our medical insurance. He is life-
  9. We wouldn't have as many injuries if we slowed down these MRI's.

  11. Any thoughts as to who takes Ronnie Harrison's spot on the Jags?
  12. 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.
  13. 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 dang
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
