A great night of witty banter and trash talk made for a memorable inaugural Blogger Bowl Draft. I’m still a little cheesed that the husband-wife team scored the first two slots and I was jammed all the way back at #8.
I’m not very pleased with the overall tone of my team. Nothing like my church league. Here’s how my team shapes up:
Round 1: Ronnie Brown–He’s ranked as high as #5 on some lists. And he won’t be sharing the ball with that toker this year.
Round 2: Lamont Jordan–He’s a hoss but I’m not completely confident here.
Round 3: Willis McGahee–He knows that he is the best back in the league. Too bad nobody agrees with him. Still, he will pull in the yardage.
Round 4: Eli Manning–When he pulled that little stunt 3 years ago during the draft I said I would never select him. I eat crow.
Round 5: Roy Williams–Hopefully he now has a quarterback who belongs in the NFL.
Round 6: Matt Jones–Drafted too early but I wasn’t letting Borland get him in both of my leagues. With Jimmy Smith’s retirement he could be the man. This is my heart pick.
Round 7: Dominick Rhodes–Here’s hoping he can hang on to his starting job.
Round 8: Joe Horn–Good middle-rounder.
Round 9: Laurence Maroney–Corey Dillon won’t last. Here is your rookie of the year.
Round 10: Jerry Porter–Good pick here.
Round 11: Ben Roethlisberger–He probably won’t a great fantasy qb, but he makes a nice back-up.
Round 12: Mike Bell–Here’s hoping he hangs on to the starting job in Denver.
Round 13: Kevin Curtis–Should emerge as the #2 in StL.
Round 14: Phillip Rivers–Roll the dice.
Round 15: Marcus Pollard–I have to draft a TE. That’s the rules.
Round 16: Cincinnati D–I need a D too.
Round 17: Sebastien Janikowski–Rule number 1 of fantasy football: never draft a kicker before the last round.
Again, I’m not all that jazzed here. Compare this to my church league:
Kellen Winslow Jr.
Now, that team will play for the championship.
