I mean I had a really good team in League 2 last season - went out in the conference championship. This season was a placeholder year when Dak went down, I sneaked into the playoffs on a tiebreaker and then Ryan Fitzpatrick catches fire, wrecks creation and I win the league.

Meanwhile this season in League 1 my team was the culmination of a 3 year plan that went 15-1 and broke every record on the books and lost in the conference title game (after winning a title it had no business winning last year).

The playoffs sure do seem super random.

I mean - apart from you and Clay losing. That's steady as the sunrise.
I have no answers for my teams lack of success in the playoffs. The loss to you makes sense that offense was built around Mostert which somehow won me 15 games. So the next season in the playoffs I decide to let Russ cook. He throws for 300 yards and 4 TDs yet I somehow lose on a fumble in OT.

I have one team that's a legitimate powerhouse at every position, but we have Phillip Rivers at QB. I can attest that quarterbacks matter.

(No offense, Phillip.)

I lost on 3 lost fumbles (after losing 1 all season) and an 0/9 3rd down performance (after converting nearly half my 3rd down attempts in the regular season).

I guess I'll just chalk it up to 'shit happens' but man that's a couple of tough pills to swallow.

League 1 just saw Phillip Rivers beat a 15-1 team in the conference championship and make the Super Bowl. The Phoenix Diablos just know how to get a shitty roster to perform.

I’d tell you what I did on my defensive sliders but then I couldn’t beat you again.

Eh - it all feels kinda "Mahomes Magic Scheme" to me.

We were at a -3 w/ 3 fumbles lost and ended up losing by a single score. My #3 wideout dropped 3 balls in a single game after having 3 drops in 125 targets in the regular season. We fumbled a snap on first and goal with a chance to go up 14-0. Committed a false start penalty while driving into your territory that killed another drive after a 3rd and 14 went for 10 yards and ended up punting from your 41. Then we gave up a touchdown on a punt return after not giving one up during the regular season. Finally with a chance to get back on the horse we drove down to your 25 yard line and fumbled away ANOTHER ball. Then we turned the ball over on downs after picking up 5 on 4th and 5 (which probably wouldn't have been necessary at all had Samuel not dropped the pass on 1st down).

They just had too many key mistakes. It was a very 2021 Chiefs performance. Back-breaking errors that took points off the board and killed drives and uncharacteristic STs mistakes.

Play that game 10 times and we win 9 of 'em. The one we don't is the one that just happened. It was a carnival of errors.

Side note - I finally had a draft pick that I was happy to make w/ Brevin Jordan. Sure the Texans suck, but Jordan was a guy I was hoping the Chiefs would get to complement Kelce. He's a hell of an option as a move TE. Really athletic, fast and long (not terribly tall but big catch radius).

Looks like the Texans are finally looking at giving him the starting nod and working him more into the offense. I think he'd have gone a couple rounds sooner had the Texans been willing to put him on the field early in the year.

He's going to be a nice long-term asset to complement Trautmann and/or Tremble. Seriously - why did I draft Tommy Tremble? Oh right - Domer fan. Dipshit.

Also - surely some of y'all are in the market for CB. I'm definitely open for making a deal there.

I have SEVEN viable starting corners:

Marlon Humphrey
Denzel Ward
Rashad Fenton
Darious Williams
Jamel Dean
Eric Stokes
Even Isaiah Rodgers, a 6th rounder I drafted because of his speed (as a return man) has forced himself into the mix in Indy and has been damn good this year.

It's just a ludicrously deep secondary but almost the the point of being too much of a good thing. I figure you need to go at least 4 deep with guys you're comfortable starting (given the inevitable injuries) so I know some of y'all could use some help.

I would probably be looking at interior DL, LBs and maybe some OL help. Could package a WR for an upgrade and while I have a crapload of TEs, I wouldn't mind making a move for a surer thing there.

Hit me up if you're interested. I treat corners like SPs in baseball - Imma stockpile 'em when I can as they are always going to have trade value. So let me know if you see a deal worth making.

Yeah ... I thought I had dragged Jordan ahead of Noah Gray on my board, but apparently I hadn't. :-)

Good grab.

It's in league 2. I would give you my 3rd round pick upcoming for him.

Edit: Or shoot me a trade proposal on the site. I tried offering draft picks, but it wouldn't do it, although there is a dropdown box for it.

Well now I just feel awful.

Had I known beating you the way I did would send you into the kind of shame spiral that yields Kirk Cousins, I'd have just let you win.

I'm sorry man. I just couldn't have known...

Gotta select the team you're trading to before it will let you enter the picks. That's usually where I get stuck anyway.
