OK, today’s post will be a bit shorter than yesterdays. I am a busy fella today. I am also at a loss for words because I am going to do the expected, even though I spent a great deal of time trying to talk myself out of it. I considered Drew Brees with the first pick in the second round of the Hazean mock draft, but just couldn’t convince myself that Marques Colston would be a hit as the #1 reciever – at least not enough of one to make Drew this high of a pick. I looked at younger RBs like Reggie Bush, Clinton Portis, and Willis McGahee, but felt they would probably struggle along with their teams. So I’m pulling the trigger – mark it down:
I have a pretty firm “no RBs over 30” rule, but Shaun slips in under the wire at 29 (for one more month… I’m such a sucker). The fact that he already struggled with injury last year could be a bad sign, but nobody else (except possibly Portis) has the kind of potential to score in bunches that Alexander does. If I had to actually play a season with just these two guys, I would feel like I’d done my best. In fact, I kind of hope the Hazeans keep track of our stats just out of curiosity.
Thanks for the opportunity guys! See you around tha intarwebs!
