  1. Ahhh...I see what you did there.ūüėÖ
  2. I think he could be fine, but I would much rather have Darnold and Sewell. Becton, Vera-Tucker and Sewell could have been potentially a generational OL. I guess we'll get another shot at that in 2022...
  3. Kind of surprised I have not seen anything here about it, but there are so many alternatives to the "big 2", it is not too surprising. If you have not played, you should check it out (I am not a paid sponsor...lol). I started playing in late 2020, and have really enjoyed it. the premise behind it is that it operates like the stock market. You bid on shares of players when the "IPO opens" (typically and hour or two before a slate) and you bid on guys where you feel you will have a return, based on the where they place. I actually enjoy the concept more than typical DFS, as you can buy, sell, short throughout the game. Anyway, thought I would start a thread in case someone else out here is playing and we can knock ideas/strategies off of one another.
  4. Awesome recap! Team Sweet Love need to grind through the next three weeks.
  5. Dead count for me - Just two: Gore and Fitzgerald...I would have powned you all in 2012...
  6. So odd - my LV and KC players scores are updated, but nothing else. i guess it shows progress, but why would I add new lineups for tonight, when I don't even know how I did this weekend??
  7. In all it's glory... QB - Cam Newton - NE/6 - $11 QB - Ben Roethlisberger - PIT/8 - $11 QB - Philip Rivers - IND/7 - $8 RB - Nick Chubb - CLE/9 - $26 RB - Austin Ekeler - LAC/10 - $26 RB - Chris Carson - SEA/6 - $21 RB - Antonio Gibson - WAS/8 - $9 RB - Chase Edmonds - ARI/8 - $8 RB - Frank Gore - NYJ/11 - $3 WR - D.J. Moore - CAR/13 - $23 WR - Adam Thielen - MIN/7 - $21 WR - Calvin Ridley - ATL/10 - $21 WR - Julian Edelman - NE/6 - $15 WR - Larry Fitzgerald - ARI/8 - $7 WR - Hunter Renfrow - LV/6 - $6 WR - Chase Claypool - PIT/8 - $4 TE - Austin Hooper - CLE/9 - $12 TE - Chris Herndon - NYJ/11 - $7 PK - Chris Boswell - PIT/8 - $3 PK - Stephen Gostkowski - TEN/7 - $2 PK - Sam Sloman - LAR/9 - $2 TD - Detroit Lions - DET/5 - $2 TD - Cincinnati Bengals - CIN/9 - $2
  8. To me, that is even worse - I guess in some cases they would get a loan off of a non-guaranteed contract, but if you are only in the league a few years, no one would stop me (unless I was concerned myself) from earning a paycheck. It just doesn't make sense, unless they willingly opt out. But to trust a GM that I am guaranteed to get that year in earnings back, no way.
  9. I guess the hard part I have wrapping around my mind, is that if this were the case (being orchestrated), you are still convincing guys who make millions to take 150k for the season. I have to be missing something, because I can't see a bunch of players agreeing to something like that.
  10. I am in the Ogie Orglethorpe phase, and love every minute of it!
  11. February...letting the locks grow. In fact, I manage my company's charitable initiatives, and am going to shave the top of my head (but let locks and sides flow) for our Make-A-Wish initiative. Basically, i will look like a balding dude with the other stuff flowing.
  12. That is great - you will love the Duke campus! It has a very northern college look, situated in the south, so best of both worlds! In regards to Raleigh, we are still on curfew (8:00pm), and not sure if that will trickle down to the weekend. For some reason we were hit hard when the protests turned to riots. As a community, we tend to have a pretty good relationship with the police department, so it was a little surprising. However, I am not sure whether you are staying in Durham or Raleigh, but if you are in Durham, there are a lot of good, newer restaurants, I am just not sure who is open (same with Raleigh). Feel free to hit me up for any suggestions. Enjoy the visit!
  13. Daughter applied for gap year on Thursday last week and found out she was granted the gap year yesterday. I was absolutely shocked they made that decision so quickly. To me, it would be quick in the best of times, and we are certainly not there today. The most surprising part is that the university has yet to announce it's plan for the fall, outside of saying they will be open. but what does that mean. I for sure thought they would wait to make that announcement, see what the feedback was like, and then begin making gap year decisions. Maybe they know something we don't, but i would have taken a different approach if I was the administration. She has a real internship in her field, so that is great from an enhancement perspective. Plus she has an interview on Friday at the frozen custard shop, so if she gets that, i will need to get larger pants/shorts...lol.
  14. I am not a particularly good test taker, but unless a few those 12 metrics they spoke about are objective, I am not sure how you get a hard number. GPA, to me, is too wonky based on school, classes, teachers, etc. I am not even sure how the test optional places do it. If you have two identical kids, and one sends in test scores, the other doesn't, but the one who did is 50 points off your SAT average (for example) how do you measure against one another. Maybe I am looking at it the wrong way, but while applaud the effort to be more inclusive, it seems more like a crapshoot to me.
