hmm, where the hell is Houstan?
Didn't even know we had a football team in Pakistan.

Houstan? WTF? You fail, submitter

So all I have to do to get a greenlight is spell a city name wrong in addition to the first name of the player in question wrong? Damn.

I just saw this from the NFL rumors link:

Running back Domanick Davis, the Texans' career rushing leader who has been rehabilitating from an injury, might not make the team. Davis, who missed five games in 2005, has not practiced since the first week of preseason because of a bruised left knee.
-- Houston Chronicle


Are you freaking kidding me?

Yeah, and I got stuck with him in our Total Fark fantasy football draft. Stupid ESPN app.

One of the Deadspin articles today is Do Not Draft Domanick Davis, People.

I took wali lundy in like the 13th round of my draft last night.
 
2006-08-29 03:22:39 PM  
I just picked Lundy up after reading the Deadspin article.

ESPN Radio was saying the same thing today. Totally sucks.

haplo53: I took wali lundy in like the 13th round of my draft last night.

I am hoping to sneak away with Wali Lundy in a similar round Friday night. I think people will assume its Vernand Morency that will replace him.

anything could happen, I guess. I figured the possibility that lundy will be The Man down there is worth a 13th-round pick in a 10-team league. I think the texans will be throwing a lot as they're going to be awful, but if lundy starts and can turn in one of those "holy shiat who's this guy?" performances in week 1 he could be good trade bait.

still, a running back is not worth the number one overall pick in a draft

That sobbing you hear is me... I had Davis and T.Jones (Chicago) last year. I play in a keeper league so I figured Davis would be healthy and Thomas (who was also banged up a little) would be on his way out of starting in favor of Benson. Guess who I kept. I am so forlorn. By the time it was my turn to pick, the best back left was Frank Gore.

It is if that RB has a chance to be the best ever. A small chance, granted, but a chance. You simply cannot pass on Reggie Bush.

Assuming you meant the real draft, and not a fantasy draft. If you meant a fantasy draft, then I REALLY don't know where you're coming from.

if reggie bush fulfills his potential, he's more than just a "running back." I think "freak" transcends any concept of position value in today's NFL.

A running back is worth the number one pick in any draft, NFL or fantasy.

The Texans will regret not taking him for years to come.
 
2006-08-29 04:02:38 PM  
real draft

i dont know, guess im not much of a rb fan
 
2006-08-29 04:06:33 PM  
I can see the argument against taking an RB first in the NFL draft. RB is a low-shelf-life position, and you can find good RBs anywhere.

What you can't find just anywhere are GREAT RBs, and that's what Bush can be.
 
2006-08-29 04:30:31 PM  
Well, he's pretty good on Madden.

Swiftraven: The Texans will regret not taking him for years to come.

If Wali Lundy ends up being a good back, and Mario Williams ends up another Javone Kearse, then the Texans won't regret Bush. Reggie Bush reminds me of Michael Vick draft.

Oh... SD will regret not taking Vick. How incredibly stupid!
Would you rather have:
a.) Michael Vick or
b.) LaDanian Tomlinson AND Drew Brees AND another #1 pick next year?

The Texans should have traded the pick, but I still think Reggie Bush WILL be a dud once he starts a few games and feels the hurt of a starting RB in the NFL. He'll be a great 3rd down back, nothing more.

star_topology: Well, he's pretty good on Madden.

Yeah, and Ray Lewis is 98 overall in Madden. And Shane Lechler... the punter... is 99 overall...

It's a little late now so I just have to hope that Reuben Droughns and.. Cedric Benson. I am officially boned

Shaun Alexander, Steven Jackson and DeShaun Foster. I tell you, it's great to be in an NFL.com league where their preranking system selects all QBs and no one in the league shows up to the draft.

The ratings are relative to the position, and cannot be compared across them. Ray Lewis is one of the best MLBs in the game, but hasn't been as good the past two years as he once was. Shane Lechler IS the best punter in the game, and has been for some time.


Dom Davis was a good player, but will be added to the list of football players who could have been great if not for a career-threatening/ending injury.

"If Wali Lundy ends up being a good back, and Mario Williams ends up another Javone Kearse"

you mean another Jevon Kearse like the first one, who had a good rookie season, then got injured and went to another team because he had too high a salary cap number? I'm sure they'd be happy about that.

and sure, Wali Lundy, he sounds good. How come I watch every football game that is televised, play fantasy football, AND gamble on nearly every game and I still have no idea who the hell he is?

Plus, name a good player named Wali. or even Wally. Maybe the best is Wally Joyner? Wally Sczerbiak (I would say sp?, but there's a good chance that his name is actually spelled incorrectly by everyone else)
 
2006-08-29 06:28:49 PM  
Yeah, Lechler is light years ahead of other punters. Read Dr. Z sometime on SI.com and find out why.
 
2006-08-29 06:36:59 PM  
Had the first half of my first draft today. Completely avoided Davis. Someone finally took him in the 5th round, but I don't think at the time anybody realized just how bad the injury is.

Poor bastich also picked Fred Taylor.

I got Steven Jackson and due to his injury (and the Redskins sucking in pre season) I landed Portis in the 2nd round. Not sure if I'm happy with that or not.
 
2006-08-29 07:13:55 PM  
Fred Taylor not a bad pick. His backup tore his ACL.

Cakeboy: Fred Taylor not a bad pick. His backup tore his ACL.

that doesn't mean Fred Taylor is going to avoid turning into 1999-2004 era groin injury Fred Taylor.

No. He's going to be a good ALL AROUND back. I don't know if Reggie will ever be a great consistant back. He can certainly be Barry Sanders-lite, though Bush will probably receive the ball a bit more.

That's the thing about Bush... even if he's not the best RB in the world, you can line him up all over the place.

Had Davis on my fantasy team last year. Still waiting for him to score a touchdown.
