Re: Never asked for a rate my team before...give it a try

The number of teams in this league the depth is tough to come by. I live in the Bay Area and I have been following Moore pre-season. Definitely a long shot. Was my last non-kicker, d pick. Pretty damn thin. Alternatives were Jabar Gaffney, Kevin Walter, Nate Washington and some mid-tier TEs. The lin...

Check this guy out if you haven't read him. Funny book, good book. Sometimes hard to find that in one book.

Re: Top 40

Deep thought: If a team is lousy, then from a purely numbers standpoint, it doesn't matter if they checked out or if they were unlucky or both. Auto-pilots and teams with bad luck are mathematically indistinguishable. They take up an equal amount of the leagues talent and impact the overall quality ...

For instance, I wanted to think about including stuff like how many teams autodrafted, and what were the transaction levels as well, but these things become quite difficult to quantify in a meaningful way. I t...
