    Time to put it to a vote

    We'll pick from the top 3 and 4 and vote again.

    As far as evaluating these guys - no one gave me any good ideas so I leave that to your judgement.

    I voted for Moon, Masler and Ant

    Moon and Masler may not be the best on the sticks but they continue to bring in better players, which is essentially making them get better at the game. They started out as easy wins but have put themselves in a position to steal big upsets from time to time.

    Ant has down well in a very competitive division by keeping his star players and bringing in better talent every year. The dude works the Free Agents in the offseason!

    Wow I got two votes ! :D lol

    Not a toot my own horn kinda guy , but here is a case for myself as a top GM ....

    1. I have 6 starters on my team from prior drafts , 4 of those have started 2 seasons or more. Overall I have 10 players who I have drafted that see quality playing time.
    2. I was able to complete trades for pro bowl caliber players Andre Johnson & Nnamdi Asumgwa
    3. Traded up into draft this past season to get a second stud OLB from a GM that wanted stud OLB's :D
    4. Traded TJ Lang who was giving up 10+ sacks a year in my scheme and was getting paid way too much after I signed him in FA for a 3rd round pick as I had a G on the roster I groomed to take over for him in Moffitt(thus far he's allowed team low 3 sacks)
    5. Traded that 3rd round pick & a 3rd string RB for a starting MLB in my new 3-4 scheme.
    6. Signed unwanted Josh Cribbs to replace fumble prone Leon Washington as my return man , Cribbs is top 5 in punt & KO return yards with 1 fumble all season.
    7. Boosted my bench depth by adding : James Harrison , Dwight Lowery , Melvin Bullett , Chris Clemmons , Paea & Shawntae Spencer on defense to avoid having 6 starters on IR ( hint-hint Masler )
    8. I have resigned all of my core guys without overpaying and have yet to be in cap situation where I could not resign anyone , resigned players include: Wilson , Lynch , Unger , Irvin , Branch , Mebane , Wagner , Wright , Sherman , Chancellor & Thomas.

    Sadly I suck ass on the sticks so despite building a really solid roster I have yet to win a playoff game :( lol

    One of the things I considered when I voted is how did each owner treat me? I feel that not only should the results of an individual owners moves factor in the voting, but how did they get there. I can say that the guys I voted for were very fair when I dealt with them and very honest. Not every deal works, but having open, consistent communication is the most respectful way to conduct business with each other.

    This was my subtle way of trying to get guys to list what moves they have made, beyond Baron blowing his QB daily nobody else is really talking about what GM moves they have made that had a big impact.

    It's not just my QB Dan, it's how epic of a move to get him and keep him out of Phil's clutches! TMFL should thank me! Do you really want a QB with a laser--rocket arm with 90 speed in PHIL's hands?

    I like what Lawdog has done with his team , I feel Keller should add him to the poll.

    In a not serious accusation........ I feel like Deuce members may have colluded in the draft however to rape Oakland , and atleast date rape Rams :cautious:
