    Just checking in and making sure folks are happy with their picks so far and still on-board with this experiment.

    Are you getting playing time? Do you think you'll be able to crack the starting lineup by Week One?

    Playing Time sucks cuz its preseason. When week 1 kicks off it will be awesome! Did another CCM with Luck and got OROY and OPOY! threw for 4,600 yards. Brown and Moore were out with ACL injuries. So no ground game to help. I felt like Matthew Stafford

    basically i'm toying with letting folks switch to draft picks from 2011 as well (as long as the guy isn't over 84 overall - so likely no Cam, no Julio, no Miller).

    So that would open up moves to:

    CB Patrick Peterson, Cardinals
    QB Jake Locker, Titans
    DE JJ Watt, Texans
    QB Christian Ponder, Vikings
    DT Nick Fairley, Lions
    DE Robert Quinn, Rams
    DE Corey Liegut, Chargers
    HB Mark Ingram, Saints (would third string though)
    WR Jon Baldwin, Chiefs
    CB Jimmy Smith, Ravens
    HB Steven Ridley, Pats
    DE Mohammed Wilkerson, Jets

    If I can crack the starting lineup, the Giants are going to be sick. Just saying. Scored a bunch of points against the Jets with Dave "I like to hold the ball a millennium" Carr at QB and a bunch of trash receivers.

    Put me in a situation with Eli at the helm and Cruz/Nicks? Yikes.

    If I Could get a better Defensive angle Id prolly switch to Peterson(if possible). Id have to play with angles. I can only do D from the back camera perspective. With me on the colts I see us in a few years. Im calling 2015.

    talk to the guys who are playing CB already. There is the wide camera option.

    I'd also add for everybody above me in the draft, IMO somebody would want to have to move to your guy first. Having Luck move to somebody else doesn't help us unless one of the guys lower down (or Caleb goes back to a QB) jumps on him.

    really i just want to make sure everybody is happy and engaged, and if you aren't make sure you are.

    Nah I'm fine with Keuchly, haven't really had a chance to start yet but I'm 1 point behind the starter so all I need to do is bump up my awareness and I should be fine.

    Yea I did. took a couple punts to the house but gave up a big play on 3rd and td the next drive. No INT but couple knock the ball loose before actual catch. It was a lot of fun.

    Did you want to switch? If Moose confirms then:

    mooseboyj to CB Peterson, Cardinals
    oneshot24 to HB Ridley, Patriots
    The Rulah to QB Luck, Colts
    Corey Haggard to DT Fairley, Lions
    NYJuggalo45 is jumping and and wants QB Locker, Titans
    sschevyridah can move to HB Richardson, Browns; WR Jon Baldwin, Chiefs; QB Christian Ponder, Vikings

    Everybody else is a starter already and happy with how things are.

    I would then prob take Richardson if available, but otherwise stick with Wilson.

    Only thing is I won't be able to accept an invite tonite. As is, going to have to squeeze an NCAA game in around the Giants game tonite. So as long as it doesn't screw you up if I accept tomm, then yeah give me Locker. If it does and you need to advance and someone else wants Locker, give him to them. If you open it up to 2nd year players there are more choices for sure and I will find someone else. Don't want to take a starting QB from a member of the league who already has joined.

    Ok. I like the risk. This doesn't count as the Mulligan tho right?

    This isn't the mulligan. I consider it "experimentation that happens when you create a new kind of league."

    If you're down with the moves I put forward go ahead and do them when you have a chance.

    Please quit the franchise and rejoin, though. Don't retire the player.

    If somebody screws that up we'll have to start from scratch (which isn't the end of the world I guess - just means some more preseason games).
