    Would anyone be available to do the draft for me? I'm pretty sure that I will not be available during that time and would like to have a human stand in, not the computer draft for me. If interested, please pm me and I can alert Randiesel75 .

    I'll be MIA for the draft as well. I may give XBL a call as to why no one can ever recover my gamertag, but at this time count me out.

    Excited, but not like years past. Usually I have a really bad team no one else wanted, so the draft is an exciting time. With the Saints we feel we have all the pieces for a Championship. Since we are on the subject anyone wanna trade draft picks:)

    Steelers are willing to trade picks, but I think we will have the last pick of the first round. So I don't know how that will exactly benefit anyone haha

    Looking forward to this process. Have you guys saved your player xp? What would be the benefit of saving it instead of progressing players through the year?

    Saving it to the end entitles you to a larger number due to accruing, therefore allowing you to purchase that big ticket item. I'm still unsure how I will spend mine. Really pumped to start scouting, though.

    I've saved for some, just in case i want to trade and the huge xp may be a benefit, i think xp carries over if you trade somebody? if not, then pointless of rme to do it.

    For the important players, i progressed throughout the year focusing on the lesser, but important stats like ball carry, injuries, route running, catching, etc. Not like sending 10k for one point speed burst.

    All the others that accumulated a lot, i just didnt feel like progressing them :eek:

    It was nice to get a big bonus for some probowl players, i had 6 probowlers!

    And we had some real standouts on defense also so it was a little surprising not to have any.

    Yeah I think he had a total of 13 or 14 td's and 0ver 1850 rushing yards but he did lead the league in fumbles.... And I don't doubt McFadden getting in but there isn't only one RB slot for the AFC. Ryan Matthews was robbed! He will be hungry to get after it next season. And believe me....He could have used the injury and carry rating boost that would have come with a probowl. How much XP did McFadden and everyone else get for making it into the probowl by the way?

    Mcfadden i think had like 9 fumbles, probably 6-7 lost...

    I updated him as much as possible, i think he was under 10k, probably in the 5k range, after the season he was at 31k 0_0. Van Dyke as well, i updated him a lot, didint have much xp, but after probowl, he was up to 30k.

    Speaking of fumbles, Ray Rice had 8 fumbles. 95 carrying. I was amazed that he fumbled so much.

    After evaluating my depth chart it looks like I am going to be recruiting a couple of safeties and maybe a WR or CB

    Does anyone know if Vilma comes back? I heard a rumor he does. If that's the case I may have LB up for trade once the offseason starts.

    When does XP for making playoffs, Pro Bowl, etc. kick in? CWT 3000 - have you been given any of these xp yet (I'm thinking some might not kick in until after out of playoffs??)

    I'm not sure completely either. Season Goal XP has been given out, but for me I haven't recieved any extra XP for the playoffs or Pro Bowl.

    Got all mine after i lost my playoff game. It will be listed in your actions list, i think i got a 15k xp milestone for making playoffs or something cuz i used it on some coach package. I was at about 14k at end of season and was at 30k+ after my game. I used it on increased xp accumulate for qbs.

    My probowlers also jumped like 15k like mcfadden, shaugnessy, seabass, van dyke. I updated mcfadden and shaungness and van dyke all season so i used it all up, i ended having 20k xp for each, mcfadden had 31k after my playoff loss.
