Dressel's team would be a contender if this were 2006.
Hey what's up newbie. Fact check for you - 5 fantasy titles, and I'm always a contender.
But unlike basketball and baseball, this football game is ruled by 2 things first and foremost: injuries and luck.
The luckiest uninjured team has the edge, and none of us know who that's gonna be yet. And not to put emphasis on "luck" more than "injuries," but in last year's Super Bowl, my team of Plaxico Burress, Reggie Wayne, Steven Jackson, Jamal Lewis, Antoni Gates, and Chicago D was beaten by Chris Redman and Pierre Thomas.
Having said that, if you think that your team has an edge over my team to the point where you proclaim that my team would only be good if it was 2006, you definitely don't know what's going on. My team can drop 100 on your ass on any given Sunday, chief.
If you have 5 fantasy titles drafting against guys who take Desean Jackson in the 4th round, then I'm not real impressed Dresser. Moss if going to run circles around Owens this year, so I'm not sure how think you're going to get past my team this year. R. Bush, L. Johnson, Roy Williams...those guys are all on the way down, not the way up. Dallas is not going to have 11 TDs again - those TDs are going to A. Gonzales in 08, so I guess you think Coles and Kevin Smith are going to have a big year?
Between Matt Forte and R. Moss, I've got about 40 TDs coming your way, so unless I decide to bench the rest of my squad, you'd better be planning on second place or worse this year.
Ahhh...smack talk is the best part of FFL and I need to get in as much as I can before my team really starts to stink it up.
