Yeah I'm not overly critical. FA has barely been open a day. People who are involved in this have real jobs and real life responsibilities so I'm not concerned with waiting till the 48 hour deadline. For what it was worth I was one of the first to submit my App so I'm waiting close to the longest time.

Oh, I've gotten a few of those already....I'm pretty sure one could be used as an encyclopedia of "all players available in 2012 free agency and what I'd pay them."

I feel bad for you teams without much cap space. There were just wheelbarrows (I don't think I've ever seen that word in writing before) of money being dumped on some guys.

A lot of people have submitted offers, and I know a few said they would be doing so tonight after they get out of work and school and such.

But by tomorrow, like, mid morning, I'm going to start announcing some of the slam dunk signings.

And I get really bored (work on Fridays is soul crushingly slow usually,) I may do some other signings.

you gave me a deadline please dont go announcing players before that deadline. i planned my work schedule to give myself time to finish before the given deadline.

BeerBaron
02-17-2012, 07:12 AM

I won't announce any players with competitive offers, so no one like Mario or Manning or the high end free agents.

But there are a few where, if I could show them to you, everyone would just be in agreement that the player would take the deal. They're almost entirely resignings where the team wants the player back (obviously,) the player wants to be back, and the money is market value (or better.)

Eh, I'd say stick to the deadline. Could be a team left that will up an offer for a lower tiered guy, etc. You are just asking for trouble with any announcements before the deadline to submit offers

If McGahee can rush for 1300 with Tebow, McFadden will rush for over 2000 yds if he plays the whole season.

BeerBaron
02-17-2012, 09:05 AM
If McGahee can rush for 1300 with Tebow, McFadden will rush for over 2000 yds if he plays the whole season.

I think there are better odds of me playing a full NFL season than him. Guy has legs of glass.

I'm waiting to see if RaiderNation berates me for that trade. I've been listening to him for Raiders moves so far, but that wasn't on the list.

Nalej
02-17-2012, 09:07 AM
So he'll probably run for 1300 yds in th 8 games he plays in. McGahee will rush for another 600 in the other 8.

BeerBaron
02-17-2012, 09:09 AM
So he'll probably run for 1300 yds in th 8 games he plays in. McGahee will rush for another 600 in the other 8.

And that's all assuming the Tebow thing works out again. I have my doubts...

I feel like Elway is going to put pressure on the coaching staff to try and develop Tebow more as a passer, and I don't see Tebow ever making that much progress.

To fix his throwing motion and mechanics, they would literally have to undo tens of thousands of reps stretching back Tebow's entire life. That's not going to happen in one offseason...I don't know that it could happen in 10 offseasons.

jrdrylie
02-17-2012, 09:15 AM
Between his junior and senior year, they tried to fix his mechanics and they got worse. The same thing happened when he got in the NFL. I saw him play numerous times in high school and his mechanics were much better then than they are now. If they keep trying to tweak his mechanics, he'll be throwing with his feet before too long.

TheBoyWonder22

I'm kind of bummed I couldn't get Foster, he was signed far too quickly for me, but I would have offered something similar.

Nalej
02-17-2012, 09:18 AM
I guess I should have added that i think the Broncos win a total of 6 games too.
I definitely agree with you though that Tebow has to progress as a passer but I also have my doubts.
Muscle memory is a *****.
All depends on if the ponies sign or draft another QB.
If they go into the season with just Quinn on the Bench, they'll ride the Tebow train all the way to the number 1 pick next year (Barkley?)

I'm kind of bummed I couldn't get Foster, he was signed far too quickly for me, but I would have offered something similar.

It would have taken an Elite level deal and a first round pick since he was an RFA. That's the only reason why I allowed the team to sign him early.

That's exactly the problem. Nothing they can do this offseason will improve it.

And I don't think they just sit with Tebow and wait for him to fail. Whether they draft someone like a Weeden in the mid-rounds or bring in a mid-level FA, Elway will make sure there is some kind of actual QB on the roster who isn't terrible to wait in the wings.

TheBoyWonder22
02-17-2012, 09:23 AM

Let me rephrase, I have 20 guys I'm actually looking to bring in. I'd be turning over almost half of my roster.

Nalej
02-17-2012, 09:24 AM
Weeden is an interesting thought. I'd figure he'll go no later than 3rd rd. Wasn't sure if Denver is willing to draft another qb that early. Maybe a J. Campbell or That old JAGs starter

BeerBaron
02-17-2012, 09:24 AM

Weeden is an interesting thought. I'd figure he'll go no later than 3rd rd. Wasn't sure if Denver is willing to draft another qb that early. Maybe a J. Campbell or That old JAGs starter

People seem to either love or hate Weeden. I don't quite hate, I just don't see enough in him to take him high. Given how I've seen him play when I've watched him, I wouldn't draft him higher than the 3rd or 4th even if he was 23.

The one benefit to him being older at least is that he should be more mature and take to being a professional faster, since he's already played a professional sport once. (Minor League Baseball.)

That's why I could see a team like the Broncos taking him since they could probably plug him in a little sooner if Tebow stinks it up early next year. Then, if he doesn't work out as starter, draft someone new in the first round next year and you at least have a solid backup in Weeden.

Nalej
02-17-2012, 09:35 AM
That all makes sense. So they'll probably just sign. J. Johnson and keep the option going now.

Not gonna happen. If it did, I'd do it through the draft, not with a QB who is mobile but is also hard to bring down. Not that I have anything against Joshy.

BeerBaron

nice. let me know if you have questions.

None yet, yours is pretty straightforward.

To all: I do encourage everyone to check in often tomorrow as I announce signings. If I have a question and ask you, your ability to respond quickly to clarify may be the difference between getting certain players. I'll try to give you a reasonable amount of time to respond, but if you don't, I'm just going to go by whatever I think you meant.

I'm going through and making preliminary lists (just of what teams want who) so I'll hopefully catch any concerns there, but do check in frequently tomorrow.

BeerBaron
02-17-2012, 11:07 AM
I would like some opinions on how to announce the free agent signings when I do them.

Would you like me to post them in story form in the Media Thread like I've been doing the rumors, cuts, and things? It'll be one big signing per post (or a couple of minor ones who are all going to the same team.)

I plan on doing that no matter what, but if you'd prefer, I can ALSO list them in a separate "signings" thread. It'll just be plain text one-liners like "Player X - Elite Deal - Team Y"

I could possibly make a post for each team and edit them in as I get them WHILE also doing the Media Thread posts so you know when new ones have been added.

And of course, I'll be adding the "new team" to the FA list.

CJSchneider
02-17-2012, 11:10 AM
I suggest the following:

1. Post major signings (Elite / Quality level) in the Media thread in story form
2. Create a "signings" thread and update the thread regularly posting a handful of Mid/Low signings at a time

draftguru151
02-17-2012, 11:16 AM
I'd say do the media stuff and probably have a separate thread just so everything is organized and easy to find.

I just want to let everyone know that as Bears GM, I saw that story in the Washington post and made Jay Cutler text Dwayne Bowe to make sure that he's aware that Peyton Manning can't currently throw a football, while Jay Cutler very much can.

Also during his Chicago visit, Cutler and Kristin Cavalleri introduced Bowe to one of the hotter, sluttier girls from whatever show she's on. Lauren Conrad? Is that the same show? Just saying.

I'm getting the feeling that my list wasn't that good. Or that my team isn't good enough to draw free agents or a little of both. I have a backup plan, though.

Your list wasn't bad, but you're right in that some teams that....weren't so good in 2011....and aren't particularly attractive situations....may struggle to sign guys even if they do have the money.

It happens in reality though too. You just have to be creative to overcome it.

Those are also the teams who could be the big winners in the 2nd round. There are guys who are getting below market offers and won't sign until then, in which case you could swoop in and offer them the best deal and snatch them up.

We should probably wait and see where some free agents end up first because half the people might prefer "Satan" or "Dreamsmasher."

I'm pretty sure "Dreamsmasher" is a way better handle anyway.

The FIRST round is only guys who get offered what they want and up. So an Elite guy that doesn't get any Elite offers won't sign in the first round. But then teams can regroup and take another crack at those players.

Round 2 is going to be whole bunch of everything.

The Panthers have confirmed that they won't be submitting anything. I may have them at least resign a few of their own players during round 2 at least so they don't have a bare roster.

So yeah...if I got the Jets offers, I could actually begin since everyone would have had a chance to submit.

Alas...I leave work in 30 mins, then have to drive 2 hours home and go out to dinner with my parents (free meal...I'm not complaining.)

Is that the card trading portion? Franchise mode is the only feature I use.

i did the best thing around Christmas time! i made a London franchise and obviously replaced them with the jaguars. i signed loads of free agents and it was fun building my team up! I only played like 3 seasons though. i get bored after a while and start a new one which then lasts 6 games and i start a new one.

I've played with so many teams.

I usually play with the (spoiler!) Pats...
One time though, I took a terrible franchise like the Browns(!)
and moved them to Puerto Rico.The San Juan ChupaCabras!
It was awesome... except during the rebuilding years.
Holy crap did those teams blow!

Don't feel bad... I traded away Welker, 85 and Branch.
Then over the next two drafts- found 3 Megatrons.
All three of them are 6'3 225-235 lbs with 95+ speed
Bombs central!
Actually, I throw over 20 INTs a season 'cause I throw so many jumpballs
So worth it though!

Hahaha that's awesome. I tried to keep this one somewhat realistic. My fantasy draft teams are crazy though. For example, my d-line is JPP-Wilfork-Fairley-Tuck.
