    Hope bears sign Jonathan Joseph, doubt it though and he wont move till Nnamdi has and then he can assess his options with the teams that still need a corner. Also dont understand why the Eagles are trying to price up Kevin Kolb in a 1 buyer market when they got a very good offer on the table if rumours are true (Rogers-Cromartie and a 2nd rounder)

    I heard the Texans are front-runners for Nnamdi. Mainly because you need at least 1 shutdown corner when you're in Peyton's division. If the Jets get him, I think that's a waste of money. Their defense is already great as it is, spending 15 million a year to make it a slight bit better is a poor decision imho.
    id love us to get him, but would probably mean losing cromartie, i dont think we realistically will though as we cant afford him - we can barely afford to resign our own free agents let alone more

    glad we got holmes back though

    There are teams that need him more and will pay more money for him but he is quoted as saying he's happy to take a bit less money in order to play for a team that will be competing for a SB. teams like Houston and Detroit have a glaring need for a DB but someone like NYJ are super bowl ready. Playing for the raiders for so long will do that to a guy
    Detriot arn;'t into him-we don't have cap room and its not Schwaltz/Meyhews style. We're looking at Cromarte or Joseph at DB and Tullock at LB. We'll probably move for Keith Bullock as well.

    it depends what rules get used in the end, i cant remember exactly but think it may have been

    1 qb
    2rb
    2wr
    1rb/wr (can use either)
    1te
    1 kicker
    1 defence

    plus spare people on the bench

    think i heard we may be picking special teams but ive never seen those rules before so not sure :/

    Awesome.

    I just want to get myself sorted with priority picks and such. How many extra for the bench?

    usually 6

    assuming we use random drafting which is fairest you swap order each round, for example 1st round first pick means, last pick 2nd round, 1st pick 3rd round etc

    to be honest though personally, dont bother ranking people, better to just see who is left when you pick and pick the best person thats left as you never know who will be around :/

    Perhaps but it doesn't hurt to have an idea. I plan to pick at least a couple of people I'm sure will be around but want to remind myself I want them.

    Seems RB/QBs will go first so will depend on how lucky I get in the randomiser. Who are we going to trust to only do it once?

    so true, i actually prefer being the end of the first and start of 2nd, that way you might not get the very top player but you get 2 very high ones, but that may be just me

    A reasonable policy but I would prefer to have one of the first couple of picks

    Any news on when we're getting the fantasy football league up and running?
    I will set it all up on Monday next week. There are 17 confirmed at the moment. My cut-off date is Monday, but there's not a lot of movement elsewhere, so it looks like 17 will be our final number!

    I will randomize the order 5 times (one never seems like enough haha)
