Draft Results 2008

Upon reflection, the big fantasy football draft this year produced some results that were a little bit odd. I've got a lot of players on teams I don't usually follow all that closely.

For quarterbacks, we got Trent Edwards (Buffalo), Tavaris Jackson (Minnesota), Phillip Rivers (San Diego), and Tony Romo (Dallas).

At running back, there is Earnest Graham (Tampa Bay), Andre Hall (Denver), Tim Hightower (Arizona), Felix Jones (Dallas), Marshawn Lynch (Buffalo), Jonathan Stewart (Carolina), and LenDale White (Tennessee).

Catching the ball will be Anquan Boldin (Arizona), Marques Colston (New Orleans), Vernon Davis (San Francisco), Braylon Edwards (Cleveland), Jabar Gaffney (New England), and Vincent Jackson (San Diego).

Kicking will be Phil Dawson (Cleveland) and Steven Gostkowski (New England). And there is the usual Green Bay Packers defense -- the only Green Bay "player" at all.

Fortunately, nearly all of our fantasy football opponents got the joke in our team name, "McCain's Folly." My partner and I were afraid it would be too subtle and historically obscure, but enough people caught it and thought it was amusing.
