I'm Just Saying.....Fantasy Football Draft
Category: NFL
Tags: NFL Fantasy Football

Yesterday I had my fantasy football draft. I think this was the hardest I ever had to work in selecting a team. My draft day strategy changed several times before draft day even arrived. I knew I had the 5th pick in the draft (we do it just like the NFL, based on the previous seasons won/lost record) so I had time to over analyze. In the league I’m in you have to pick 2 QB, 2 K, 2 Def, 4 RB, 5 WR/TE. So Gabbers, here is my draft in the order I picked them:

TE Jimmy Graham

WR Julio Jones

RB DeMarco Murray

RB Zac Stacy

RB Frank Gore

WR Michael Floyd

D Carolina

K Mason Crosby

QB Nick Foles

WR Reggie Wayne

QB Ben Roethlisberger

D New England

RB Bernard Pierce

K Greg Zuerlein

WR Marqise Lee


Notes: This draft was the first time I ever drafted 3 RB in a row.

Adrian Peterson was taken first

Jamaal Charles was taken second.

Peyton Manning taken third.

LeSean McCoy was taken fourth.

Marshawn Lynch was taken in the second round.

Seattle was the first defense taken and that was in the fourth round.

I took the first kicker in the eighth round.

WR’s Boldin and Evans were not taken.

I'm Just Saying.....Jacksonville Jaguars Practice

I went to visit the Jacksonville Jaguars practice for the first time in two years. I don’t know why I did not attend last year, but I made up for it this year…Here are some pictures I took from the practice:


Coach Bradley has got to be the most upbeat person I have ever met. He is always smiling. He is definitely a players coach.

This is our long snapper Carson Tinker

Our starting middle linebacker Paul Posluszny

Jacksonville quarterbacks in camp. To the left is Chad Henne (shirt is up), number 5 is our number one pick Blake Bortles, number 2 is Ricky Stanzi, our likely number 3 backup, and number 6 is Stephen Morris a rookie out of Miami.

This is Nate Stupar the backup linebacker to Posluszny.

This is our 1st second round pick Marquise Lee. He is going to be a good one. He will be our starting WR.

Number 89 is our starting TE Marcedes Lewis. The Jags are going to pass the ball more to him this year.

The dude looking right at ya is our starting FB Will Ta’ufo’ou.

This is our backup LG Drew Nowak.

There were three towers video taping practice. I wonder how they knew what to record.

That is Henne taking the snap.

Coach Bradley yaking it up with LaRoy Reynolds our starting weak linebacker.

Johnathan Cyprien our starting strong safety.

That’s undrafted rookie quarterback Stephen Morris taking the snap.




During practices and even during warm-ups before each regular season game, coach Bradley always give a high-five to his players.

Various practice pictures…


I hope you enjoyed these pictures from practice.



I'm Just Saying....Jacksonville Jaguars huge scoreboards unveiled here

Yesterday the Jacksonville Jaguars unveiled their new $63 million dollar scoreboards. It started off with a soccer game between Fulham and DC United. Fulham won the game 3-0.

This is a picture of the new scoreboard at the North End Zone. The video displays what the video of the old scoreboard looks like as compared to the new board. The new boards are 60 feet high and 320 feet wide.

Under this scoreboard are cabana’s. Each one seat 20 people at a cost of $250 a seat. We have a friend that purchase all 20 seats for the season at a cost of $45,000 for the season. It includes access to the two swimming pools and all you can eat food and drinks. There are also two spa-type wading pools 25 feet long and 12 feet wide and is 3.5 feet deep. Each one is located on opposite sides of the North End Zone.

Another view of the North End Zone scoreboard.

This is the South End Zone. The Upper two floors are party zones and a sports bar. Down below just above the end zone seats is the Bud Zone. It’s the Bud Zone area that you usually meet friends at.

Stage for Carrie Underwood concert.

Mayor Brown. Got at luke warm reception. He is talking about raising property taxes and raising the Cities debt another $235 million dollars. You know how that goes.

Owner of the Jaguars, Shad Khan. He got a 1 minute standing ovation from the 52.961 fans in attendance.

This is one of the video’s I took of the new scoreboard. Sorry its narrow, I have not figured out how to make the video full screen.

Here is another video. I hope these came out.

Carrie Underwood. Duh…

Another picture of the concert.


I hope you enjoyed the pictures.

Bye the way, I am not a fan of country music, but I sure did have a great time.




That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind...

Tony Gwynn loses his battle with cancer

Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn has died at the age of 54. The eight time batting champ played 20 years with the San Diego Padres. He was one of the greatest players of all-time with 3,141 hits, 1,383 runs, 1,138 RBI's, walked 790 times and only struckout 434 times. Tony was an 8-time batting champ, had 19 seasons of batting above .300, yet his greatest accomplishment might have been that he reached base in 75% of his times games that he played in, which was 2,440 games.

Baseball lost a great man and a great human being. RIP Tony Gwynn
