Horseshoe Blue PPR 2016

45 posts in this topic

So I am starting up the Colts Forum PPR league again this year.  All current members should have already received an email. If any spots open up I will post immediately so keep an eye out if anyone else is interested.  Go ahead an post if you want in, I foresee possibly one spot opening up.

 

Meanwhile here we can discuss when a good time for the draft will be, any new rules that we would like to see implemented.  Ive already got 3 votes to incorporate decimal scoring.  But its a league vote so let me know.  If you have any other ideas, feel free to pitch them.  For current members, I updated the league managers note when you first log in so please take a look.

**UPDATE**

 

I set the Draft Order by reverse rankings from last year. As of note, I used the playoff results and not the final season results for setting the draft order.

 

As it stands here is the draft order by Team Name:

1. Punters be Winning too

2. Team IndyD4u

3. Mike Strahans Tooth Gap

4. Luck Be A Lady

5. Team Coltman

6. Indy Bluefire

7. Swoope There It Is

8. Go Pack Go

9. Phillip my Ball to 12.5 PSI

10. Team Hulce

 

I also edited the LM Note a slight bit.  Instead of suggesting replacing a WR for a Flex, I changed it to replacing a TE for a Flex.  This is only a suggestion and not what will happen.  Must be approved by a supermajority 7/10.  p

 

If there are teams that do not respond by deadline or do not wish to resume, they will be removed and spots will open up.  This means Draft order spots will open up.  Starting from #1 position down, you will be given the option to either move UP one or DOWN one spot, depending on what is open around you.  

 

After all positions are determined, new entrants will get to select their spots from  the remaining available; in the order of reply to this topic.

 

Tentatively set the draft date to Sept. 3rd at 9pm.  Obviously this will change, but wanted to get it set up for now.

Hopefully I learned a lesson or two from my first season in PPR and do better this year

another idea is to extend the season by two weeks and have the playoff rounds only be 1 week.

 

Finally got the divisions balanced out i think.  May have to re-do it all again after the deadline.  Got a feeling were losing a bunch of people cause right now, theres only 5 active players, including myself.

Are you "show me your TD's"?  I have to try and match up team names to real names to forum screen names lol.  

 

You have the option (as your last years team was swoope), to drop down one spot in the draft. From 7th to 8th.

 Tentatively 8th unless 7th to 9th wants to move.

 

do you have a day you prefer? I always target weekends.  Saturday or Sunday.  So we have all weekends from now til September 4th.

When are some good dates for the draft.  To accommodate my wife and our kids nap time, the times will be roughly restricted to around 1pm CST or after 730 pm CST (2pm and 830 pm EST). We can be flexible if those times are too restrictive.

If this is a Saturday than either of those times are fine with me.

I'm flexible on dates. I prefer the after 7:30 pm CST time frame, but can manage with an earlier time

So I have enough votes to implement Decimal scoring.  I have already made the changes. 

 

I am tracking the following yes votes for 1 week champioships:

 

Team Hulce

Myself

Btown_Colt

Bap03Colts

 

Please let me know if anyone else wanted one week playoffs and championship.

 

Only 1 vote for additional flex.   

Anyone have any other ideas they would like to post?

 

Besides IndyD4U, who else would not be able to accommodate a 1pm CST Draft on a Saturday?

 (Another idea.

 

No divisions. 

 

I can understand the argument for no divisions.  The top 4 teams make it to the playoffs.  But I think in two division leagues, there rarely is a case where there is a better team that doesn't make it.

 

And do we stick with 4 teams, or do 6?

 

Honestly have been contemplating a bit.  We could increase to 12 teams,(somebody already wants to)    which would justify having 6 team playoffs.  6/10 I think is too much.  We could do 5 teams and the #1 team gets a bye.  These are all things we could do next year but are ideas that are worth tossing about.  If we increased the number of playoff teams we would definitely have to do 1 week playoffs.

That's great, I was worried it wasn't going to but my hands got tied. 

 

Hope you guys like all the trophies.  I think some are pretty funny.  I think the Kicker one is the most fitting. Trivia question!  Why is it the most fitting?

    • it's kind of a win win though if we do have a bad season I won't be too upset and if we have a great season then that's awesome. unless we keep our coach and get like a late 20s pick cuz I mean we'd still get value but not as much maybe as a top 10 pick obviously. it's not as simple as just want a good season not this year. even though I always want the Colts to kick butt
    •   Denver won a superbowl with Brock Osweiler (plus a living corpse Manning). Osweiler (and Siemian both) looked a lot better under Kubiak's hand than any QB under O'Brians hand since he left Boston. Not to mention, O'Brian replaced Fitzpatrick with Hoyer, who was worse than his predecessor, then replaced Hoyer with Osweiler who also was worse than his predecessor. Imo, O'Brian couldn't install a system for his lesser talented QB's, which would've helped them use their strengths.   On the other hand, Pagano is a secondary coach. Let's see what he has done there? The Colts (Grigson) didn't draft a single player in the secondary in the first 3 years. Of the free agent additions: Davis become a first team all pro. Mike Adams made the pro bowl multiple times and played his best football over age 30 in Indy. Dwight Lowery had a decent year here, one of his best. Greg Toler wasn't good, but he played his best football in Indy. The Laron Landry project failed, but it failed more due to not being able to stay healthy, than production. (I didn't particularly like him though, but I can't say he was terrible when healthy.) Darius Butler become a decent player, having his best years of his carreer in Indy. Then, when the Colts finally decided to draft in the secondary: D'Joun Smith turned out to be a bust. Health issues again. Geathers became a fine player - sadly, health issues there again.  For T.J. Green, Hooker and Wilson the jury is still out. And they found Rashan Melvin off the streets. This is not bad at all. Most players, who stayed healthy, played their best in Indy. Of course talent matters. You can't make pro-bowlers out of journeymen.     Pagano's record is 15-7 at home and 13-14 on the road against coaches ahead of him. That's not a bad record considering that coaches ahead of him usually have better rosters under their control. (The numbers might be off by one or two here or there, due to coaching changes, etc. I might counted - or not counted - a game played against a previous coach. I also counted games against Harbaugh and Kubiak supposing they'd be in top10 being active. Anyway the true record must be close to the above.).   All in all, I think Pagano is right there where he belongs to after 3 winning plus 2 down seasons. Middle of the pack. But ..... I think, based on "potential", he is better than his current value. He is a top10 coach on my list.   I know many of you guys strongly disagree, but that's my honest opinion. There are better coaches in the NFL than him. But not many. So I really wish Pagano will prove himself in 2017. Aaand, if he fails and will be fired, then I cross my fingers that there will be at least one guy available of those "not many". (Yes, despite my belief that he is a fine coach, I agree that he has to go if he fails to prove himself. Because that's the right decision. But honestly, I'll be scared if that happens. It won't be easy to find a better guy. And there is always a chance to be ChipKelly-d....)  
    • Banner was up to 260Lbs He was at 253lbs for the combine with a goal of 245lbs. I thought that's what I read.  Walker adding 7 so he's back up over 240.    Wilson at 207lbs jumps out to me. We heard about "football shape" for him. He was 211lbs at the combine. You'd think him being in better shape would make him a blink quicker. If he's a little faster we may not get him. I'm excited to see this kid with Hooker on the back end. If we can get Geathers back we could have something.   
    •   And, wittness such a weird offseason. Giving up a fortune for Mahomes, letting Poe (+Howard) go then sign Bennie Logan for similar cash? Let Charles, Knile Davis go then sign C.J. Spiller? And finally, let Maclin go and not even try to do something with the WR depth. (There was Decker available for example....)   These remind me a bit of what happened in Philly when Chip Kelly took full control. He let McCoy go then signed Murray and Matthews to huge contracts, etc. Weird moves.   Reid is not Kelly, the old man is proven and good. But still.... something doesn't feel right for me there.
    • Even though this is Camp weight [nothing to get riled over] there are a few players that intrigued me weight wise. Hooker, Woods(23lbs is alot of weight), just to name a few
