3FL Notes: 2010 Draft Analysis

Eleven of twelve teams were in attendance for our online draft and everyone seemed to have a good time. Here is an analysis of the results (in draft order):

1. Yuengling Brewers: The Brew Crew (obviously) took Chris Johnson with the first pick of the draft. They also ended up with Larry Fitzgerald and Philip Rivers. Then they went to bed.
Grade: B+

2. Stiletto Stompers: Coach Bev was online for the whole draft this year and it shows. She just better hope that none of her starters get hurt... Grade: B+

3. Lightning: Wow. Even the players who aren't top tier are still poised for a great year. The Bolts have got to be the preseason favorite to win 3FL SuperBowl X. Grade: A

4. Spiked Vipers: The 3FL defending champions decided it would be a good idea to draft more than a few NFL defending champions. Their QB, RB, WR and D are all from the Saints. But like the stock market, past returns are no guarantee of future performance. Grade: B+

5. Dumbbums: You can tell that Coach Coaldog was the only coach not present for the online draft (Roethlisberger in the 3rd round?!?). But if Alex Smith can hold down the fort until Big Ben returns from his suspension the 'Bums will be the ones laughing. Grade: B+

6. Misfits, Inc.: If you have played QB for the Philadelphia Eagles in the past 4 years, chances are that you are now wearing a Misfits, Inc. uniform. Along with the best WR tandem in the 3FL. Grade: A-

7. ray ray haw: It wasn't apparent during the draft, but the haw ended up with quite a solid team. They will be guided by the fortune of the Atlanta Falcons. Oh, and Tom Brady. Grade: A-

8. Baltimorons: Coach Drew missed the first few rounds with an excuse called "work" or whatever. He ended up with an interesting mix of superstars, veterans, and guys you've never heard of. It's a rag tag bunch, but that isn't always bad. Grade: B

9. Renegades: The engaged couple have the top QB and top D in the entire NFL, but the rest of their lineup also looks awfully good. Except for WR3. It will give them something to argue about.
Grade: A-

10. Predacons: A rookie RB? Randy Moss? A Steelers player? Santonio Holmes + 4 weeks of suspension? This is not your usual Predacons team. But Coach Sinkerbeam has never won the trophy with his usual picks. Grade: B+

11. Marauders: It was a solid draft for Coach Hoss. If it wasn't for the laundry downstairs that needed changing it might have been even better. QB might be a bit weak, but they make up for it with some sneaky WR/RB picks. Grade: B+

12. The Comfy Chair: The chair is stuffed with talent, even after being the last pick in the draft. Vincent Jackson is not actually on a NFL team and RB2 is staffed by a couple of 2nd stringers, but, Peyton Manning, y'all. Grade: B+

The Comm-nosticator makes his first predictions soon. Stay tuned.


  1. "The Bolts have got to be the preseason favorite to win 3FL SuperBowl X."

    It's one thing to be the favorite; it's quite another to be the actual winner. We have never even made it to a Championship game; but anything can happen in the 3FL. Is this the year?
