Chiefs fantasy football LIVE Draft

Think we should do the votes in a form of a post. I am voting that way for two reasons.

1. It allows us to cancel out Goo Goo Dolls/12 Round of KC's, and trolls like him's votes.

2. We can know the exact number of votes once the time has passed. With polls; you don't know what the exact amount of votes, and the percentage exactly. With votes in post form, you can know the exact number of votes at the deadline, cancel out trolls, and get an exact count.

Reminder: Gooey now has both of his accounts back. So he could vote twice the other way. It prevents double voting, like that, 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.

Yeah i'm going to provide the guidelines at the top of each matchup ahead of the two teams and their descriptions. This is why i tried to explain what each of my guys did as members of Chiefs in my description. These matchups will be for everyone on the Chiefs message board to vote on. I think the idea about describing how you will attack your opponent is a good idea but that can be optional. Now i need to know what you guys think about the voting.... do you want to have votes in the form of a post so we can see who's voting or as a poll?? Let's vote on that.....Smile

SSB, I believe that D2B2 is posting the matches on the KC Chiefs Message Board and asking the Chiefs community to vote on who the winner would be if the two teams played. I saw that somewhere back a few pages.

"Who decides the winners?"

The voters.

"Will it be a vote amongst us or opened to everyone?"

It will be an open vote on the Kansas City Cheifs' forum. It will be a regular post; not a poll. This is to prevent the troll Goo Goo Dolls (He got his orginial account back, yet, again.), and 12 Rounds of Goo (Unforunately he did not lose this one.). We all get to vote as well. We will be the only 8 who know which team belongs to who, and besides Death2Broncos2; noone will know who any of the teams are owned by.

"My only concern is if it is an open vote will everyone voting understand the guidelines, otherwise whoever certain players will get too much credit... like Deron Cherry or Joe Montana. Not trying to diminish what they did but both did the majority of their best work either in another decade or with another team."

Think Death2Broncos2 should post the rules that he posted on the 1st post for this blog. These are the rules again.

"Here are some simple things to keep in mind when drafting......

1. The player you pick must have played for the Chiefs for a minimum of 1 season. That doesn't necessarily mean all 16 games, but made an attempt to play in at least half of them. In other words, don't draft Ronnie Lott. 

2. We will assume that the player you draft is only as good as his best years as a member of the Chiefs. In other words, you aren't getting 49er's Montana, but the Chiefs Montana. 

3. Remember that all things will be considered. For example, if you draft LJ and give him a great o-line to run behind, we will assume he will play like the 1700 yard 15 TD RB that he once was. You put him behind an average o-line and we will assume he is the player he is currently. 

4. Know your team's identity. Don't just draft the best players that fall to you. Come in to this draft with a gameplan for your team and draft accordingly. 

5. This is the important one. Keep track of your roster. Remember, we aren't drafting any depth.... only starters. Don't draft 3 WR's or you'll throw everything out of order. 

6. Feel free to make trades and swap picks. Just remember, you have to trade an equal amount of picks and/or players. 

7. Offense: 1 QB: 1 RB: 2 WR: 5 OL ...................... Keep in mind that you can draft 3 tackles if you like and convert one to a guard or center if you need to. Just remember again that all things will be considered. Not everyone will think that plugging Grunhard in at RT will do wonders for your o-line. 

8. Defense: This one is a little tricky. 4 DL/2 LB or 3 DL/3 LB: 2 DB: 1 Safety............ This one is a bit confusing but we can have fun with it. You are basically deciding whether or not you want a 4-3 (4 DL/ 2 LB) or 3-4 ( 3 DL/ 3LB) defense. In this scenario we will assume that the guys you pick will be fine at either/or. In other words, Derrick Thomas will be the same dominant LB in either defense. Jared Allen will be the same sackmaster in the 3-4 as he was in the 4-3. Glenn Dorsey can play NT. So on and so forth. We are basically just looking at the front 6 as a whole and determining how they will play as one unit. The reason i'm doing this is to again even the playing field."

So from my understanding of the rules. We are voting by which team we personally think is the best. This is what you need to remember about each player.

1. The players must have played for the Kansas City Chiefs from 1990-2008, and played at least 1/2 of a season. All 144 players fit this.

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..

"What do you guys think?"

I like the idea DCN88. I'm for it; if we have enough people who agree to it.

Sure you want to describe how your team is going to be destroyed by my team, though?Cool

I just wanted to throw my two cents in and get everyone else's opinion. Now that we know the matchups, I think before D2B2 posts the matchups on the Chiefs message board, each team should be given an opportunity to describe a gameplan on why and how they believe their team will beat the team they are playing. 

Maybe a few paragraphs about how you would attack the opposing offense, and what you would do defensively. Then when D2B2 posts the matchup on the message board he can include each teams gameplan.

What do you guys think?

Sorry for reposting that. I put my DEs, and OLBs on the wrong side of field on the first post.

On the first post. I had Mike Bell, and Derrick Thomas on the left side (Tamba Hali's 2006-2007 side.). I had Duane Clemons, and Louis Cooper on the right side (Jared Allen's 2006-2007 side.).

On the second post. I put Mike Bell, and Derrick Thomas on the right side (Jared Allen's 2006-2007 side.). I put Duane Clemons, and Louis Cooper on the left side (Tamba Hali's 2006-2007 side.).

Sorry about. The last; most recent one is the correct one. I am satisified the most recent one; so I will not repost it again.

Chiefs fantasy football LIVE Draft

Team: Cottonmouth Monsters

OFFENSE: QB: Tyler Thigpen RB: Jamaal Charles WR: Dwayne Bowe, Emile Harry OL: John Alt, John Tait, David Lutz, Mike Webster, Rudy Niswanger
DEFENSE: DL: Joe Phillips, Duane Clemons, Mike Bell LB: Derrick Thomas, Donnie Edwards, Louis Cooper DB: Bernard Pollard, Cris Dishman, Lloyd Burruss
(3-3 Defense)

OFFENSE:

This side of the football is built around the offensive line. All 5 players are former, or current starters. Alt and Tait are bookending the o-line. With Niswanger and Lutz next to them, and the small, but very physical Webster hiking the ball; in the middle. Niswanger is without a doubt the weak-link, but Alt and Webster will help him out greatly. Thigpen was chosen as the QB, because of his ability to throw, run, and catch. He is a versitale athlete running the offense. His weapons are the physical-built; fast Dwayne Bowe, and the speedy (Mr. Irrelevant) Emile Harry, on the outside. In the backfield, there is the speedy Jamaal Charles. Charles is in the new-millennium-RB like Reggie Bush. He has speed, can run, can catch, can return, and is a guy that you just want to see have the football in his hands. John Tait will be playing as a trickster some. He has ran the football once, and it went for 28 yards. So will find out, at least once this postseason, if that was a fluke, or an untackable big guy. This will be tried at least once down at the goalline. If it works, will try it maybe once a game. If not, that is the end of it. For the most part it is a balance offense; with a physical offensive line; that could beat you with the passing or running game. So the offense will be playing to my opponent's weakness.


QB: Tyler Thigpen: 2yrs in NFL (2 with KC.) Passing: 2648YDs, 18TDs, 13INTs, 1-10 starter (With Herm, and horrible o-line.) Rushing: 386YDs, 6.2 Y/A, 3TDs Receiving: 37TDs, 37.0 Y/A, 1TD Awards: Rushing Leader for QBs in 2008.

RT: John Tait: 10yrs in NFL (5 with KC.) Rushing: 28YDs, 28.0 Y/A, 0TDs Starts: 139 starts out of 148 games Awards: 2 Time Pro Bowler

Total: 13 Pro Bowls, 8 1st-Team Selections, 6 2nd-Team Selections, 1 KC Chiefs HOFer, 1 NFL HOFer, 1 CFFL Mr. Irrelevant

DEFENSE:

This is a big; physical defensive that will be doing a lot of pass/rush/combo blitz. All 9 player are 6'0, or taller. Up front, we have a big physical defensive line. Was able to make a perfect 3-3 defense because three of the players come from the Levy-Mackovic-Gansz Eras, or were in their primes in the 1980s; in Mike Bell, Louis Cooper, and Lloyd Burruss. Thanks to the fact they were all three holding by their last fingernail onto their roster spot by 1990; was able to save later picks on them. Giving me a dominating defense. With none of the defensive linemen below 6 foot 4 and around 250-300lbs; this is a physical group up front that will give any RB, and OL a hard time. Mike Bell, in Jared Allen's former spot, has great pass rushing ability. On the second level, we have #1 overall pick Derrick Thomas, joining Mike Bell to frustrate the left side of the o-line. If the line gets too busy on that side, the very underrated Louis Cooper, who had 4.5 sacks his only season as a full-time starter, and Duane Clemons will be ready to take advantage. In the middle, the most complete LB of the last 20 years roams either in the offensive, or defensive backfield; playing coverage, or blitzing. Derrick Thomas and Donnie Edwards were a force in the late-1990s. They will be a force, yet, again. On the third level of defense. We have the most physical group of DBs in the league. Cris Dishman spent 1 season in KC, and posted what should have been a Pro Bowl season, but was let go for some questionable reason by Carl Peterson and Gunther Cunningham. Now this physical, interception machine of a DB is back for revenge. On his other side, is one the most physical, if not, than most physical DBs of the 1980s in Lloyd Burruss. In the middle, the Bonecrusher is getting ready to strike. He is the worst of the three DBs in coverage, but one of the physical DBs in the league. With Burruss, Dishman, and sometimes Edwards back there; Pollard's main job will be to clean up the mess left by the other three. Just ask Tom Brady what that feels like. Dishman will cause more interceptions, Lloyd Burruss will cause more dropped balls, and Pollard will cause more bones to be crushed. Watch out for the most physical defense in this league.
