Sometimes running the Mularkey offense makes me feel like I'm in a prison.

I got a broken link from that one. Try this: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2006/w ... index.html

Although I think all parties realize it's way too early to judge a player based off 12 weeks of football, I think even if you throw that notion aside, this re-draft is very questionable.

How do Reggie Bush & Jay Cutler still belong in the Top 10? Maurice JOnes-Drew and Norwood at #27 and #28 and Bush at #7? Maroney #11 and Addai #21? C'mon that's crazy. I like Bush, and I think he's going to get a lot better down the road, but if we're judging from production just thru the first 12 weeks of the season, how is he the #1 RB taken?

I realize the fact that Bush may catch 100 passes this year is very impressive, but would a team really take him over Addai (projected 1100 yds) or Jones-Drew (projected 10 TDs), or Norwood (projeced 750 yds, 6.7 avg) just so the Raider fans can be more excited about losing?

And why is Cutler the 5th player taken? What has he done this year that would merit such a high draft ranking.

Maybe I'm taking it too seriously, but I usually expect better things from Don Banks.

I agree Pudge, you can't take any kind of speculative exercise like this one too seriously...it it just a traditional thing Banks does to get us to look...and we do...lol

I have seen others out there and some still have Bush in the top 5 based on his upside, which is hard to qualify.....
