I couldn't see taking Eli manning at all. He's way too inconsistent for regular season play. Like Rex Ryan's coaching style.

SenorBenedict: Besides if you are leading with Romo you can change your team name to Romolicious.


You know they stole that character from me, right? And the "had a bad day" is from us! IT'S FROM US! ESPN, YOU OWE US ALL BIG TIME! Or is it NFL? I should get that straight first....


thecpt: Thanks to di's lovely and insightful profile, I was able to remember bro cocho's records somewhat off the top of my head.


*solitary sportstear*

I'm so proud.

One is consistently bad there. Kind of unfair.

Its the NFL that does the had a bad day song every other farking commercial. Though at this point I'm more angry at the never ending apple I whatever commercials that seemingly go on for like 2 minutes.

Well that and NBC's ads for their farking horrible shows.

Di Atribe: thecpt: I drafted tony romo as my starting ff qb. I got him in the 8th. The room laughed (giants fans). He's tony homo they said. He's not an nfl qb they said.

/then got rg3 in the tenth.
//absurd draft.

That's so funny because in our draft, Eli wasn't picked up until the very end as someone's backup. Hm. Of course, Romo was one of my keepers, so it wasn't even a question where he went. :)


I still blame Romo for my 5 point loss in the fantasy championship game two seasons ago.

I always come in second as well. Never won a league because my guys always blow it in the championship.

I can't decide what I should do.  I am in a keeper league as well. I have AP and the 9th pick.  I live in PA so the rest of the league hates Romo because they're dimwits.  I am throwing Aaron Rogers back in the pot and kinda know who the rest of the league is keeping.  So as to my dillema...

I know how other people draft, and already kinda know who they are going for in the 2nd round,

I know that if I take Dez with my 9th pick, Romo has a better chance of being available on the way back down.  I know that Dez will be taken 2 picks after me with the #10 pick.  My buddy was feeling me out and then I just told him I might take Dez, as he knows that I draft for 1 Superstar in each position.  I know he won't be taking Romo because he is a die hard Eagles fan, but he would take Dez.  I think I might take Dez if their isn't another top 3 WR available.  I also am always the first to draft a kicker.  I won last year and almost won my other league with Romo.

I believe we all got a taste of what Dez could do in the final 8 games of the year.  He and Romo remind me of Irvin/Aikman... but more athletic.  If the Boys had an O-line like Troy and Emmit, Murray would probably rush for 1500 yds.  That is the weakness of the Cowboys.  Romo with time = TD's.

Already got one of those made, actually.

Made it for Di earlier today.


I would have I would have guessed Sanchez would be comfortable with 2 balls coming at his face.

Ouch. As if the Saints defense needed any setbacks.

From what I can tell from Niners fan forums, they seem to have liked him.  Which is good.  Hell, the worst Niners LB has to be an improvement.

Really? I'm completely done with the AT&T U-verse ads with the 14 year old "old timers." I don't know if that's just a Cowboys thing with the whole AT&T marriage or what, but got-damn just STFU and watch the game, you little twerps.


degenerate-afro: /The man played with a punctured lung, but a bruised pinky finger was a show stopper


He didn't need his lungs to grip & throw the ball properly, hello. I also lost my league that year thanks to that game. The other dude beat me by like, 10 points. If Romo had stayed in the game, I would've destroyed him. And when I say "lost," I mean that I came in 2nd & still managed to haul in $200. So.

The worst ad in the football universe in 2013 is that ad with the munchkin voiced whore squealing "straight to Julio"

I'd take Dez if I were you, unless your friends are trolls & they would pick Romo just to use as trade bait. I'm paranoid about that, but everyone knows how much I love Romo. I'd say only 2 of my pals in my IRL league are underhanded enough to burn a draft pick just to troll me. But I'm still paranoid.

Anyway. Dez looks downright beastly so far this year. Maybe he's got his head on straight this year. Also, have you considered joining the church of DeMarco Murray? The kingdom of heaven is at hand.

In other "you did what!?" news, last year, I picked up the 49ers defense fairly early & they helped me win a few games. Nobody questioned me this year, so you do what you do. Having a top-notch defense or kicker seems to be severely underrated in most leagues.

Sounds like a local cowboys thing, the only At&T commercials I get in western washington are the hilarious marketing dude with the kids.

Though he did have a commercial with NBA hall of famers where they picked on larry bird once.

NO!

And I must admit that I never got tired of people seeing that commercial & thinking of me (sooooo self-centered, I know). Samesies with the Troy Barkman spot, which I can't even remember what that one was advertising.
