    Rudi Johnson
    Willie Parker
    Reggie Bush
    Reggie Wayne
    Donald Driver
    Terry Glenn
    Trent Green
    Lavernaeus Coles
    Ben Watson
    Laurence Maroney
    Kevan Barlow
    Troy Williamson
    Brad Johnson
    Washington D

    There's no point in wasting a high pick (2nd-7th) pick on a QB when Manning, Brady, Hasslebeck and Palmer are gone. To me, any quarterback after that is going to give you around the same points each week. I didn't get my QB until the 12th round because I concentrated on running backs and another area. Already received eight offers to trade for QB's. Will I do it? Probably not because Chris Simms is taking me to the promised land bitches!

    Not to mention Brady going sixth. Not smart.

    Just curious, BYH, who did your essay winner take with her first two picks?

    A quick note to everyone on here crucifying my picks...........

    You be the 16th pick in a snake draft, and see how you do.......yeah, I could have probably picked Hasselbeck over Culpepper, and Bush is a coinflip, but when 11 out of the first 16 were RB's, that leaves slim pickings in the backfield. DeAngelo Williams is the sleeper..........it is only a matter of time til Foster's uterus falls out, and Williams will be the feature back........

    Yeah, really. If you don't want to get hit by a train, stay off the tracks.

    When you start saying "It's only a matter of time" until certain things happen, you're in trouble.

    If those things don't happen and happen early, you're toast.

    yeah, sorry for hammering you to the cross, but the bottom line, at the end of the day, when all is said and done, is you have no starting running backs. that's kind of a big deal.

    assuming the top 16 RBs were off the board, you should have still ended up with a starting backfield of willie parker, chester taylor, frank gore, kevin jones or julius jones. are they great? of course not. but at 16, that's what's available. but at least when the game starts, they are starting too.

    and we were asked to rate your draft.

    So tell us again why you took Culpepper over Hasslebeck?

    Running backs are key. Check my post that's like four or five above this.

    Chef has cooked up a recipe for fantasy football disaster!

    OK, I'm going to bow out of this one now. Chef, good luck with the team. I'd scan the waiver wire for RBs who are starters right now, if there are any left. And if you can make a trade, deal a WR for a back.
