    With Jimmy Johnson going in, Canton will finally have a coach's hair that can compete with Chuck Daly in the Naismith Hall in Springfield, Mass.

    No matter where you go...there you are.

    Just the dumbest league with stupid rosters and scoring - 14 team max

    https://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/f1/977171/invitation?key=1963f4b96f5f95ca&ikey=38a0529817b79113&soc_src=app-sh


    Draft times are flexible. If we can fill the stupid ass league id like to draft this Sunday because that would be super dumb to draft that early.

    Still a bunch of spots available in both leagues. I know the NFL sucks but it’s gonna happen so we might as well have fun with what we can!!!!

    I signed up for the first one. Ready for some fake footballs!

    I joined the real league because I am a hopeless addict who's jonesing.

    Oh it is a snake draft, how dare you. Why won't you let me buy both Alvin Kamura and Christian McCaffrey and then have to rely on 1 dollar throwaways for the rest of my roster???

    I did one auction draft in SE a few years ago. Got called into work. Auto drafted.

    Woke up to a team with 4 Quarterbacks, none of them starters.

    How was Jimmy Johnson not already in the Hall of Fame before this year? Seems at least a decade late to me.

    He only coached like 7 seasons total, and he sucked in Miami

    He’s basically half a Jeff Fisher with 2 SB wins, a very weird candidacy

    And after he got fired the Cowboys still won another Super Bowl on autopilot under Barry Switzer.

    Put another way, he has the fewest wins of a HC that has been inducted by 22 wins (20% fewer!!), and the lowest winning percentage of any coach with like less than 125 wins, which is 50% more wins than he had

    Jimmy Johnson getting in cracks the door for Tom Coughlin a little since his winning percentage is comparable, has two titles, a lot more games and took a team besides the Giants deep into the playoffs

    That is the type of self-targeting sarcastic humor that legit never fails to make me appreciate someone just a little bit more.

    Like you really can't be Kanye bad levels of arrogant and drop any sort of line that makes you even remotely the butt of the joke.

    e: it's why I genuinely enjoy watching Justin Timberlake in just about anything. He's never afraid to make fun of himself. He knows his origins are little bit of a joke, and he's never tried to be too self-important for that sort of thing.

    Huh

    Which of these RBs are you putting him over:
    Henry
    Cook
    Chubb
    McCaffrey
    Kamara

    Hell you need to start looking at Ekeler, Dobbins, James Robinson, Josh Jacobs……

    Btw I’m really pissed the Browns extended Chubb for $12m a year, even though I’m thrilled Chubb was able to get $12m a year….but they can find a 2nd rounder next year to give 85% of his production anyway….

    I don't know why Saquon's stock would fall further than someone like McCaffrey who was out with little nagging injuries for the entire season. I'm not saying I'd be rock solid on picking him top 5, but if you were already high on him I'd be surprised to hear you sing a different tune this year.

    Saquon wasn’t close to as good as those guys before his injury, and was taken #2 in a draft with Josh Allen and Lamar Jackson, which then forced the Giants to panic draft between DJ and Haskins

    Wait talking fantasy yeah I agree about Saquon, the Giants are going to give him so many touches he’s going to get so many points if he’s healthy, regardless of if he actually helps them win football games IRL

    Chubb is one of the least valuable fantasy guys on that list because he’ll get the least touches in scoring plays, but his per-touch numbers will still be some of the most productive ever (I think Chubb is up there with Jim Brown for best all-time per-touch production in his first 3 seasons)

    Put any of those guys on the Giants and they would have looked like shit too. That line has been absolutely pathetic at opening holes, Barkley routinely has to make people miss in the backfield just to break even on plays. His Rookie year had something stupid along the lines of 7 or 8 ypc when he didn't have to break a tackle in the backfield vs 1.2 when he did.

    Sure, I think he’s good but that’s just further proof of the waste of a RB at #2

    The Browns still have plenty of cap space until they have to resign Mayfield in 2023. I don't see the Chubb contract being a problem at all especially if they don't try to resign OBJ.

    Saints' Michael Thomas has allegedly demanded trade. Doubt it will happen because of his injury and money.

    Your favorite sports league you won't give up on is pulling another Ray Rice investigation/bungling in real time btw while endangering 30+ women https://www.si.com/nfl/2021/08/13/the-problems-with-deshaun-watson-nfl-investigation
    By the time Ashley Solis met with NFL investigators, via Zoom call in April, she had already cleared many of the hurdles that come with bringing serious allegations against a high-profile celebrity. The 28-year-old licensed massage therapist was the first woman to file a suit against Deshaun Watson, describing sexual misconduct by the Texans quarterback. She forfeited her privacy by naming herself even before the courts required it, opening her up to a torrent of online abuse. She also met with Houston police to file a report. Even after all that, Solis was taken aback by questions posed by NFL investigators.

    “This woman asked me what I was wearing, which honestly really pissed me off,” Solis told Sports Illustrated in what was her first interview with a media outlet. “She explained that that’s something that she has to ask—which I don’t believe at all. I’m not sure what I’m supposed to be wearing that would suggest that I don’t want you to put your penis on my hand. Do I need to wear a turtleneck?”

    I mean, at 0:05 there's a completely unblocked defender right up the middle that in reality would have 100% sacked the quarterback long before he ever had a chance to make such a poor throw. So really, multiple points of failure here.
