Enough with the skill positions. Throw away the combine numbers and break out the scales. Today we dive into the meat and potatoes – the offensive line.
After three days of marquee positions, we turn to the specialists. These guys are wildcards (on and off the field). No real rules here, so let’s see how creative the boys were in their picks. Specialists are like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get.
Starting today and running through Super Bowl Sunday, Sons of Saxer will be drafting fantasy football teams. Each day will feature a new position, starting with quarterback and ending with coach. But these will not be ordinary fantasy teams; you won’t be able to find your scores or rosters in an app or online. These teams will be made up of some of the greatest movie and TV football players ever to play on the fake gridiron. In these match-ups, we all win.
- 10-round snake draft
- No back-to-back picks for owners within position groups
- Order will be reversed starting with the next position group
- No “real” or biographic players
- Cannot select Dan Marino from Ace Ventura: Pet Detective
- Cannot select Gale Sayers from Brian’s Song
- Selections can be vetoed by 2 to 1 vote for legality
Without further ado, the Sons of Saxer present, the quarterbacks.
Tom Petty once told us that “the waiting is the hardest part”; for Sixers fans, this is especially true. The tide has turned and the team has started to gel behind the efforts of one Joel Hans Embiid, but one piece still is at large – an Australian prodigy by way of Louisiana State University. When will Ben Simmons make his debut?
When the Flyers ripped off ten straight wins, I’m not going to lie, I wasn’t convinced. Some part of me knew they were playing better than they were built. You’re probably thinking, “how convenient you’re writing this as they’re playing badly,” but sometimes that’s the way the world works.
