@realjohnboy,
Thank you for the kudos, rjb, but I really can't commit this year. Have fun, folks.

@realjohnboy,
It was about whether one's players were movable before games just like in the baseball fantasy game with the same flexibility to, say, move a guy newly on the bench back to the field another day of the weekend. I posted it, not quite that way, in the fantasy football thread, and Rockhead speedily answered it for me. (Yes you can..)

So now I get it that it's a nice flexible game situation.

@alex240101,
Thanks, Alex. You need to guss the final score in the Denver-Oakland game.

@realjohnboy,
It is about 2 1/2 hours until the kick-off of the 1st game. The defending Super Bowl champs, the NY Giants host the team from Washington with the supposedly political incorrect nickname. The Giants are only a slight favorite due to a key retirement and an injury. They do have a fine QB in Eli Manning and the 'Skins have a new coaching staff and 16 of the 19 us have the Giants.
We certainly welcome additional players, for tonight's game plus the weekend's games, or for the 15 remaining games that start on Sunday. Good luck to everyone!

Wow..where's the water-cooler gab about the game?

OK, I'll start: I watched most of the game. Manning and the offense looked pretty good in spite of the personell changes. OTOH, Wash. Skins are very disorganized. What did they think? That it was still pre-season?!

The 16 of the 19 us that had the Giants are pretty happy.

I am avoiding the water cooler right now. Foxfyre is there consoling a visibly upset George. Smile

The 3rd grumpy players this morning is Edgar. He, Foxfyre and George were the hapless trio who had the 'Skins.

@realjohnboy,
For me, that's an automatic.
I NEVER pick the Giants (or the Jets).

@George,
Let me rephrase that.
I will pick the Jets if they happen to be playing the Giants,
but I NEVER pick the Giants.

16 games this week. 19 players here so far. We are unanimous in picking NE over KC and Denver over Oakland. We are evenly divided on NO (10 of us) vs TB (9) and MN (10) vs GB (9).
Imur disagrees with the majority on 1 game. McGentrix, Osso, Tico, ElStud and George vary from the majority on 2 games.
Marching to her own drummer is Jespah, who disagrees with most of us on 7 games, followed at 6 by Rockhead, Foxfyre and Fbaezer.

I am honored to be in the good company of George, Jespah, Rockhead, and Fbaezer. May the rebels prevail. (Look how far ahead of the pack we will be if our risk pays off. Smile)

Ehbeth: I like the introduction of musical interludes between other posts. A brilliant idea.

@realjohnboy,
I disagree with myself by six games, but that is pretty much always true.

What joke?
