  1. it would be nice if the writer of the blurb was noted, say, by an initial at the end. i say that because i give more credence to the analysis from some writers than others (e.g., i prefer gallagher to bruski or doc).
  2. Yikes, I tried to forget about that horrid thread. The one and only example you have that I was wrong about. Kudos. Again not baseball and a waiver wire pick up. I never once said we all make bad calls, foulline. i would also note that your analysis is excellent much of the time. my advice...
  3. prospect gurus think that he's maybe a #4-5 on an mlb team... fantasy sp4-5 is a reach
  4. Can you please explain how Powell possibly has "upside"? He's quick? That means nothing. LSH has a 40-time in the 4.4 range. The fact that Powell has less than 50 career NFL and college carries COMBINED does not mean he is some mysterious superstar, it means that he just isn't that talented. A below-average rookie RB behind the worst offensive line in football does not equal upside. fantasy players often confuse upside with the unknown. what they really mean is that they already know what guys such as beanie, benson, and turner bring to the table. that is, they have decided that those g
  5. it's possible for a poor nfl offensive line to support solid fantasy production at running back. sjax has been proving that for a number of years. however, the running backs that perform well in those situations are typically elite talents. moreover, they tend to play on teams that use their rb's heavily. the problem with your argument is that it's based off of a rather large assumption; namely that william powell is a top talent at the position. his is not the pedigree that would support such an argument and a few preseason carries coupled with mop-up duty in college shouldn't be enough to sw
  6. It isn't that it's impossible to reason with me. It's just that you have weak a** counter points to anything I say. Take this post for example. Your whole argument is that it is impossible to reason with me and that I'm crazy. No facts on William Powell or the Arizona line. Please keep this weak stuff to yourself. there's two general arguments that are being made on this thread: (1) that the cardinals' offensive line (or offense in general) is unlikely to support a productive fantasy running back and (2) that it will support a productive fantasy running back if that running back is wi
  7. Guys again, Arizona has played some of the best rush stopping defenses in the league ontop of Ryan Williams and Beanie Wells are nothing more than average run of the mill running backs. Also Arizona abandoned the run in every game far too fast to give it much of a chance. That won't be the case against Buffalo. Again I'm not saying this line is a great line, but a below average to average line, yes. They are by no means a bottom 5 offensive line in the league. Let alone the worst line in the league, which many come in here and say they certainly are. Last year Arizona averaged 4.2 yards
  8. there's a ton of video on him. it's just that there's not much video of him playing football. indeed, he appears to be a renaissance man of sorts and moonlights as 30's film star. i have posted one of his clips below. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kSAw7Fs3iBM
  9. has it been noted yet that powell was a walk-on ksu? moreover, he was a scout team player until his senior season. this guy's cv makes jackie battle and ryan torain look like jack welch
