NFL Season 2014: FOURTHREICH IS READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL!!

Last night was day 1 of the draft which means the year has truly begun.

ESPN's coverage was hilariously bad, but I gotta admit I started feeling bad for Manziel everytime they cut to him after not getting picked.

Happy Dallas passed on him though and got Z. Martin. All their defensive targets were taken already and I don't think they should have reached for defense just for the sake of it.

Oh, man, Johnny Manziel had such a bridesmaid-never-the-bride smile for everyone after the fourth pick, just to end up in Cleveland anyway. Even Jerry Jones isn't stupid enough to draft Manziel in the first round, with what he needs. I like him and all, but feel he's the next RGIII.

I love that Atlanta got Jake Mathews instead of wasting picks on Clowney or going with Mack, if he fell. That's what we needed. I'm open to how our second and third picks play out, though I would've preferred a defensive end or outside linebacker in place of Ra'Shede Hageman, but I understand where they're coming from.

I think St. Louis and Green Bay made some great choices so far.

And, New England taking Garoppolo, makes me wonder if they'll go through with trading their backup Mallett to Houston, or someone else.

St. Louis' defensive line honestly scares me now.

i like the eagles' second round choice. he will prolly start. as for huff, i can see him in the backfield with sproles just absolutely dicking up defenses with match up nightmares. maybe even just splitting time with sproles. it depends. i like where this is going though

i think the nfc west is gonna be bonkers this year. dude like mad imba

Was really hoping the Chiefs took Huff (who by the way projects to be a slot or outside receiver rather than a backfield threat but Chip could do anything) although KC did manage to get 1 Oregon Duck in the form of De'Anthony Thomas who doesn't even tip the scales at 180 and could end up being a perfect replacement for McCluster and perhaps more of a playmaker. Now theres a guy who looks to be more in the mold of Darren Sproles

Me and Johnny are both from Tyler, Texas.

His family is very affluent. They own a property known as the Oil Palace that's been around forever, at least the 1970s I'd say. It's attracted popular country stars over the years.

Back in the 1980s, Ozzy Osbourne booked a show there. The biggest church in town, Green Acres Baptist Church, made quite a fuss and had it canceled. At least one of the reasons had to have been in around 1981 he urinated on the Alamo.

Not much to say about Tyler. Pop. about 100,000; it's city living to a degree, and almost right in the middle of East Texas, which has a lot of farming communities.

There is an extreme elitist vibe in the Tyler community. I never was anywhere near the social circles that he would have been apart of.

Even despite that, he went to school closer to Bryant/College Station which is an hour and a half from here easy. He was born here but raised there I think.

Training camps start up this week.


Also gonna send out the notification to start up fantasy football. I'll open up the league to new entrants to replace who ever isn't coming back and we can add some teams if theirs enough interest.

Let me know if that link works Ando! You can join. We only had a 12 man league last when I wanted 14. I'm sure there will be at least one drop out but its set up for 14 right now.

Qb, wr, wr, rb, rb, te, wr/rb/te, k, def.

I havent set a solid draft day yet figured to wait until everyone signed up. Any setting changes we can vote as a group too but for now TDs are all 6 pts. Turnovers are all -3. Everything else is defaults. No ppr.

Just need a yahoo account and clinking that link should let you join.

Waiting on some people from last year to sign back up. Ikik usually does it but who knows when he'll see it and I don't know if <3 <3 <3 will join back up. Some of the others are reviewers but I have no idea if they're still around.

If this league fills out we can start a 2nd 8 man league for less serious/newbies if there is interest.

Alright I gave the last 4 teams warning and none responded so they've lost their chance.
