    MJG -

    It was/is called War Room Executive - This particular game never really accomplished what I wanted from it.

    Unfortunately due to my own time constraints I'm not 100% sure I will run this one - however half of my problem is with the game itself.

    However I am toying with another idea that would involve Free Agency - similiar to MNF Exec - once you put your picks in they're locked - Time is still an issue, but I could just update the scores once a week and that should solve it.

    I'm dwelling on the rules as I type this.

    It is not really a contest, but we'll have to get that interactive board mock draft going again in which each poster is assigned an NFL team (or two), and every hour throughout a week (or two if we want to go more than one round like we did last year), your team is on the clock, so you have to pick who you would take if you were the G.M. of that team (with an explanation of why that is the right pick for said team, etc.). We even incorporated trades (I recall being proud of being able to trade up with the Broncos to take Glenn Dorsey...as it turned out in real life, they were much better off staying put and taking Ryan Clady...whoops. I think I took Gholston for the Rams too after Chris Long was taken off the board before me...ugh).

    The same Ryan Clady my Jaguars team traded the slumping Khalif Barnes to move up and get? Yeah...that would be the one.

    I'll put the mock draft together again this year but will probably need some help from people who are around a little more than myself to make sure picks are in on time and what not.

    Sounds great, man. I'll be in for a team or two myself, and if you need a little help making sure it runs smoothly, let me know how I may be of service.

    Here is a quick one: Pick the first rookie to score a touchdown in the 2009 regular season.

    Difficult to say since you don't know which RB's will be on which teams just yet.

    I think I'd put the early money on the top WR, though...Crabtree. He should be a force whereever he goes.
