The Austin Tanks select:

The Eagles Defense.

Asomugha on the homerun CB signing by the Austin Tanks: yes I wanted to play for the Austin Tanks so that the owner could unveil our new look D code named Eagles Defense. Plus, when we take on the "fake" Austin (Steelers) team, I am motivated to have a pick 6 to the house!

Because choosing between these two every week drove me to drink last year and I'm looking for an excuse not to be sober, with the 26th pick in the 2011 NFF Draft, the Nightmares reassemble their two-headed QB monster and select...

Indeed. He might have done something crazy like taking a defense in the 2nd round. Imagine that!

Clark, Marshall Newest Members of Team Carr
Posted Image

Team Carr owner Garrison Carr was beaming when he took to the podium to discuss the early happenings of the 6th annual NFF draft.

“Going into the draft we basically had two schools of thought going,” the owner began. “It’s no secret that we wanted to move up because we knew that there would be a bit of a run on WRs before our pick came up. We had really identified Vincent Jackson as a guy we’d love to have, he’s coming off a bad season but we were convinced he’d do well for Team Carr this season.”

Carr paused momentarily before finding the ESPN8 camera in the back of the room, taking a second to stare directly into the lens, as if speaking directly to one of the viewers at home.

“Et tu, Rock?”

Snickers from the well informed and more highly educated members of the crowd filled the air, but others sat slack jawed and unsure of what had just transpired.

“The second was to sit pat in our original draft position, take an elite tight end and hopefully find serviceable second WRs or a diamond in the rough later in the draft.”

Talks between Team Carr and multiple owners escalated and broke down a number of times in the past week a source told ESPN8.

“Carr was never entirely optimistic he could move up, but knew a compelling argument could be made for a couple of teams to trade back so he had to try,” the source said.

Team Carr was obviously unable to make a move which resulted in the war room following “plan B.”

“You’ve got a few elite Tight Ends, that could end up getting points like an above average receiver, so even though WR was a more pressing need, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to acquire Dallas Clark, who was by far and away the best player on our board,” Carr said.

The Indianapolis Tight End has been a fantasy force the past several seasons, despite missing time last year. In 2009, as a member of the Nightmares, Clark hauled in 100 catches for 1100 yards and 10 TDs. Before he went down last season he was averaging 8.5ppg, which was good for the number three tight end in the league.

“I can’t tell you how excited we are to have Dallas on the team,” Carr said. “It’s been a long time since Team Carr has had an elite Tight End in the lineup. That position has been snakebitten for us since the very first season.”

The mercurial Jeremy Shockey turned in an above average season at the TE spot in Year 1 for Team Carr before going down at the end of the year, ever since then Team Carr has been searching for a dependable Tight End.

Team Carr drafted Brandon Marshall with their 2nd round draft selection. 2011 will mark Marshall’s 3rd consecutive season with Team Carr.

“And Brandon....” Carr said. “Why can’t I quit him?”

For the first time since his last year in Denver we won’t be relying on him as a number 1 guy, thanks to the acquisition of Hakeem Nicks.”

Carr struggled in the WR department all of last season, having moments of brilliance but poor WR play was tantamount in Team Carr ending the season on a 6 game losing streak, costing them the divisional title.

“I’m extremely pleased with our team thus far,” Carr said. “Probably more so than I have been in a long time. Hopefully the season is a good one. I can’t wait to finish this draft and do what I do best.”

Sources around the league speculate that Team Carr will take a Defense/Special Teams in round 3 to help round out the starting lineup.

“That’s horsesh*t,” responded Carr.

Rock, I'm perfectly fine if I'm the only person who gets my draft strategy. It changes every year and, judging by the fair amount of success I've had in recent years, it works for me. I'm hardly the first person to give Dex sh*t about making some questionable choices over the years (he's admitted to as much more than once). Actually, that was sort of my backhanded way of complimenting his first couple of picks.

Though, I have to say, it's a lot more fun to give Dex sh*t when he's actually here. I kind of miss the bastard.

Relying on Nicks as a #1 wr, that tells me all I need to know about that team. Have fun in the Toilet Bowl Team Carr!

I went w/ Nicks in his 2nd year based on some statistical comparisons and whatnot. If I remember correctly, some of you guys threw up some question marks about me selecting such an unproven player so early in the draft last season. Worked out for the best, as I currently possess the trophy you all are after :)

Back to Nicks...it's a solid choice w/ Smith not eating up receptions, but his health is apparently a question mark. If he stays healthy, he's a good pick. I'd have taken him again had he been available, but that's less attributed to statistics and positional rank than it is familiarity. I've re-drafted Kenny Britt for the 3rd time, for example.

Irish is right about Nicks if he's referring to injury potential, but on the flipside it's an interesting gamble if he stays healthy.

I have a feeling that Lucas could have Jerry Rice and Randy Moss in their prime and Irish would still make fun of him for it. It's a matter of tradition.

Dude, I was just giving you some sh*t too. Relax! You always have good years, so I'm not legitimately criticizing you at all. You always do unusual things like dropping roddy and keeping a TE, but it always works out for you. I think it's some kind of voodoo, personally.

I mean I'm not the one that ended up without a 1st and 2nd round pick this year with nothing to show for it, so I'm comfortable with where I stand.

I've been burned by a sophomore Texans RB once before. I'm waiting to make sure he doesn't pull a Slaton on me before rubbing it in too much
