My First Fantasy Football Draft

27 Aug

You may have noticed I was missing in action yesterday. My absence was in part because of recovering from a night of drunk debauchery but also because I was preparing for my first ever Fantasy Football Draft. Like any good student I had waited till the last-minute to study. A guy friend, who has mastered fantasy gave me this advice:

1. Draft Philadelphia Eagles’ running back LeSean McCoy first. I was pick number 4, McCoy went as number 2 in our draft. So¬† I failed at that one.

2. Make sure to get the San Francisco 49ers as your Defense Strategy. It took me about half-way through the draft to figure out how to pick at team for defense strategy so I failed at one and evened up with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

3. Whatever you do don’t draft Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback Tony Romo. Okay this one I definitely didn’t do. I instead went with Philadelphia Eagles’ quarterback Michael Vick.

My grade so far would definitely be an C.

Dolphins Still in Running

13 Mar

So just when I had given up on Peyton Manning going to the Miami Dolphins I read that he will be meeting with the Dolphins coach Joe Philbin. He will not be touring the facilities because he knows them from previous Super Bowls. The Dolphins also just traded wide receiver Brandon Marshall to the Bears. This gives the Dolphins an extra $5.5 million to court Manning. More importantly it might help sway Manning who was not looking forward to playing the 27-year-old wide receiver.(Again football players age just like models, where 40 is pretty much death.)

So now there is speculation that Manning and former Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne will be reunited. And since the Dolphins are now in need of wide receiver who better than Wayne. The real question is does Wayne really want to be linked to Manning? There is a chance Wayne could make a decision before Manning has even picked a team. And with hungry teams like the Ravens after Wayne, who knows what will happen.
