Chiefs fantasy football LIVE Draft

If Len Dawson would have been on the Kansas City Chiefs' roster in 1990, and would have been drafted in this draft; than yeah. You would be getting the Lenny Dawson of the late 1960s, and 1970s.

If those are the rules then I'm cool with it but I have to say that is silly.  Why limit the player pool to 1990 to present if you are rewarding performances prior to 1990?   Just to limit the amount of players available?  It's only one franchise anyway.   
No worries, I'm in regardless but the concept seemed a lot cooler to me restricting it to a certain time period.

"So to clarify, had Len Dawson stood on the sidelines for a game in 1990 we could have drafted him AND got his best performances from the late '60s and early '70s?"

Chiefs fantasy football LIVE Draft

Team Name: The Blue Ryders

Offense:
QB: Damon Huard
RB: Christian Okoye
WR: Joe Horn
WR: Dante Hall
OL: Casey Weigmann
OL: Jeff Criswelll
OL: Jeff Smith
OL: Donald Willis
OL: Willie Jones

Defense:
DL: Leslie O'Neal
DL: Tamba Hali
DL: Chester McGlockton
LB: Marvcus Patton
LB: Kawika Mitchell
LB: Monty Beisel
DB: Mark McMillian
DB: Patrick Surtain
DB: Jarrad Page


Team Philosophy:  
I plan on running Okoye down your throat and wearing out your D with the underrated Huard making all the right throws either underneath to the speedy Hall or over the top to Horn. Defensively my team will over power your OL with speed from the ends Hali and O'Neal and power from the middle with Chester "the Molestor".  The DBs will not only have blanket coverage because of the the great Surtain and Mighty Mouse but Page will come up and smash anyone coming across the middle. My LBs are all smart and quick making few mistakes and are led by Marvus "the general" Patton. 


Offense:
My offense is led by Huard a QB that was a backup for Dan Marino and Tom Brady before coming to KC.  He was never a Joe Montana but he didn't make stupid mistakes and could make the throws you needed him to make. With a power running game in Okoye, I can rely on a strong left side of the line in center Casey Weigman and lt Jeff Criswell to open up the small holes I need for my running game to flurish.  After getting the opposing D to cheat up on the line I can either throw it underneath to the speeding Dante Hall, who could take it all the way anytime he touches it, or throw it over the top to Joe Horn.


Denfese:
My defense is the key to my success. The secondary is gonna shut down your wr with Surtain and McMillian and hit you in the face with Page. My LBs led by Patton not only have the speed to blitz and get to you, but they have the intelligence to be able to cover your rb coming out the backfield or the wr cutting across the middle and not just bite on every play. But the bread and butter to my D is my Line.  With the power of McGlockton in the middle your gonna have to double on him, so the quickness of Hali and O'Neal off the ends is gonna destroy your o-line.

2. Does not matter when they were in their prime. You are getting the player during their BEST YEARS WITH the KANSAS CITY CHIEFS.

A) So for Joe Montana, the owner is getting the Joe Montana that played from 1993-1994.

B) So for Deron Cherry, the owner is getting the Deron Cherry from that played 1981-1991.

The decade that they were at their best does not matter; as long as it was with the Kansas City Chiefs. You are getting that player at his best with the Kansas City Chiefs..

Oh man, I completely overlooked that rule I guess.  I thought it was based on their performance in the era we are selecting from.  Heck, even my team description is wrong then.  That sucks for my squad, I took this into consideration when I drafted.  Oh well.   So to clarify, had Len Dawson stood on the sidelines for a game in 1990 we could have drafted him AND got his best performances from the late '60s and early '70s?

I sent KC_69 a text last night and he said he would try to get on today. Looks like it was a no-go. If Savage and Raven both submit their descriptions and KC_69 still hasn't made his i'll just post his description for him. I think he'll be able to get on soon though. So i guess we'll all include our actual game strategy as well as to how we will defeat our opponents. Should be fun. Now that we've all done this and know the pros and cons of this league i think we should start a new and improved version of one next year after the '09 season and do the Chiefs from 1966 -1989. It will certainly be a good history lesson for me. Cool thing about that is we'll end up having some of the same guys from this league in that one as well.

"I don't mind letting the general Chiefs message board forum vote. At the same time, it would be beneficial to allow each manager a few paragraphs about how they plan to win. I mean, this has been going on for 3 months, the least we can do is take time in examining the individual matchups from the side of the managers.

Just my take. By the way, D2B, great idea, this has truly been enjoyable rehashing the past.
"

Great idea by both of you. D2B2 for your idea of creating this league. DCN88 for your idea of describing how each team is planning on winning.

We need to get raven, SAVAGE, and KC69 over here quickly. I know that SAVAGE is busy, and will get over here as soon as he can. Think D2B2, and gi_hoke have the resources to take care of KC69. As for raven, radio silence.
