I don’t always draft wide receivers early but when I do, I don’t want to.  Wide Receiver is yet again deep.  There’ll be some pitfalls here and there but hopefully none as big as there were last year (I’m farting in your general direction, Larry Fitzgerald).  Also like last year, I plan to hear plent of guff about where some guys are ranked compared to others.  Problem is, I’d say there are about 17 or 18 guys who could be counted on as WR1s this year, especially in PPR settings and whaddayaknow, I’m ranking them in PPR so that statement fits.  We already lost one member of my top 10 to injury this year when Michael Crabtree fell down, went boom at the OTA last week.  Current word on the street is Anquan Boldin is getting on nicely Colin Kaepernick…calm down Chris Culliver I didn’t say ‘getting it on’!  BTW, has anyone told you you’re cute when you’re angry?  Chillax, you’re not my type either as you have an adam’s apple.  I don’t believe the hype with Boldin and think it’ll still think there’ll be someone else who stands up in that Crabtree role of the wide receivers which you’ll glean from my off-season rankings for wide receivers for 2013 fantasy football below…

    After reviewing our conversation yesterday I think we should leave our heart to heart conversations to football, there are some assholes in baseball that can use that to actually piss me off

    But in here I feel free enough to take off my pants and let my hair down

      If you have to take your pants off to let your hair down – and I wouldn’t normally say this to another man – you might want to look into shaving.

      Eh, I’m not proud but I’m also not embarassed by what surrounded me growing up and who I am now because of it but I hear ya. I didn’t see anyone jump on board and start talking bad, though I wasn’t paying any attention to it if they were.

        @Sky: I have pig tails over my nuts

        they weren’t, but you never know what they put in their pockets for safe keeping, this is the internet, I think, and people do like to hide behind their screens and run their mouths. In my old league they thought I was some dorky 5’5″ nerd who sat behind my computer and talked crap, then some of them got the memo from my buddy and miraculously they got quieter. I have talked about nothing I’m not uncomfortable talking about, but at the same time people could use that info to go way over the line. I actually never liked posting on line, I always felt I come off better in person with the use of body language and facial expressions to get ones message across. I also think you truely get to know who people are when you don’t have a spacebar and time to compose a response.

        I feel the same way, our lives are what they are. Our experiences are different from theirs. I have friends that have had zero adversity in their lives and only know people that have great lives where nothing bad happens. I think they are all liars who want to give off the impression that everything is hunky dory but aren’t. Hell,my one buddy’s sense of adversity is what I call Tuesdays. Speaking of people with hunky dory lives, I always hate when people say that its terrible when something bad happens to good people, are they saying bad things should only happen to bad people, Well aren’t they a judgemental bunch to think that what they do is good and what others do is bad, maybe the “bad” people view the “good as bad. My dad is one of the nicest chillest most honest people you will ever know and yet that dude has been though hell and back and never complained once, he’s had cancer 3 times, lost his son then uncle who was like his older brother 7 days later, wife almost died giving birth and lost both parents within 3 weeks of each other, and I have never heard him complain once. He’s never been one of those “I’m a cancer survivor guys” he thinks it’s a ridiculous thing people do. But like my grandfather who was a POW and was shot and saved by nazi’s never once would call himself a hero or anything self aggrandizing, instead never spoke of it and just felt happy to be alive. I’m starting to give you the family bio now, ahh people are lame is my point but I was lucky to have some good role models. My point, I’m not even sure if it’s my point, is that people are not defined by what they do when everything is easy and life is good but by what they do when things are difficult and tough.

        Go Broncos! we got Welker mitches!

          My dad always said ‘you don’t know anyone until you share a bag of salt with them’. It comes down to you don’t really know anyone until you’ve experienced some frustration/bad times or been around them for it. I wonder how many people don’t have ‘real’ friends in that respect but merely acquaintences they think they can count on when then hammer drops. Good people who have experienced something outside of the norm are hard to find out there, I’m always pleasantly surprised when I find one.

          As a Seahawks fan, you know I have high hopes this year but I ain’t crowning them yet!

            @Sky: hope to see you at the Super Bowl with Uncle Pete…..F**K the 49ers

            You’re dad was a wise man, some of my “friends” are really just people I pass the time with to escape boredom and loneliness. The two people that I shared the bag of salt with and gave me the real them passed away. My buddy that had cancer actually was the friendship I forged with him through that experience. We were drinking buddies at the same watering hole. His girl told me what was up and he was in the hospital around the corner from my parents so i stopped in to say hi, check in on him. His jaw hit the floor when I walked in his room. He looked at me and said “wow, what the fuck are you doing here buddy”. I said seeing a friend and that was all it took. Only one of his life long friends came to see him or even wanted to deal with what was going on with him. I told him that this is the life I know and this kind of thing don’t bother me. After he got out and went through his struggles we always had a special bond and he knew I was one of the only ones he could talk freely to about dealing with his cancer coming and going and coming back again, his fear of mortality and what we like to call life. He lost the battle a couple of years back. I still check in on his wife from time to time, I guess everyone else blew her off. Yeah people are pussies…..

            I might be an asshole, or jaded, sometimes a prick, but when the fire is lit I’m the first to jump in. That kinda makes sense

              Death scares people. They don’t know how to react so rather than stepping forward when life is still there, they shrink away. Common response, sad that it’s true though.

              Good on ya, Jack/Juan. I think too many people confuse being ‘kind’ with being ‘good’. Being kind many times is just covering up a lack of interaction/involvement. Being committed to your convictions can make you seem harsh and unbending when in reality it’s about as far from the truth as anyone could ever get.

                @Sky: very sad, I never understood it. I found what people were made of when my brother died. Grown ass men i looked up to my whole life couldn’t even make eye contact with me and bailed on my parents. F**king Pussies. That’s almost as bad as the people who, trying to relate unsuccessfully, would tell me they totally understand what I’m going through because they lost a grandparent. Yeah buddy, not even close. And every person I know that has lost a sibling say they go through the exact same thing and it drives all of us nuts. Death is a bitch.

                Convictions might as well be Mandarin to most people I come across. There is a big difference in doing/ saying the right thing because it’s what people expect you to do and actually doing the right thing because it comes from your heart and it’s what you really want to do.

                Now that my kid is in school and I am involved there, I laugh my ass of it at the big f**king phonies that have everyone buying their bullshit when in reality they are just a big bunch of bitches that would cut you just to watch you bleed.

                As I’ve said before, I hate people but I love individuals

    If I have time tonight, I am going to attempt to start a league at myfantasyleague dot com. Nice site, but it is not easy to figure out how to do everything. One can create a league at Yahoo or ESPN in a matter of minutes but there are far fewer customization options.

      I’ve used it before. It’s not bad but like you said, very user-unfriendly.

      • Wallpaper Paterson says:

        @Sky: It took me a matter of minutes to set up a league at Yahoo, but it is impossible to advertise your league on their message board. “Sign in to post”. I am already signed in! I follow the link anyway and sign in. I go to post. “Sign in to post.” Repeat over and over.

        ESPN sucks because I saw nothing for blind bidding waivers.

          Yeah there’s definite give and take there. You could’ve stopped at ‘ESPN sucks’. I would’ve agreed

            @Sky: It will be MFL or bust. I am a big fan of their formation options. I chose all the ones with 2 RBs or less. 5-wides, goal line sets, run and shoot, etc.

            Now it is all about setting up everything and making a decision on IDPs or no defense at all.

            @Griffin: I’ll look again. I did not see it last night.

            @Griffin: I see it now. It was shown as “Free Agent Auction” and separate from waivers.

    You like Decker to come out on top in points scored between he and Welker, and Decker to produce as a solid WR2?

    • Sky

      Sky says:

      “If I have to catch 112 balls, that probably means we’re in trouble,”. That’s me quoting Wes Welker himself. I do like Decker as a solid WR2 this year. Not sure why everyone assumes Welker’s move to Denver carries with it the same value he had in that NE system.
