Brady kills me every year. I go into every draft planning to load up on my RB or WR slots in Rounds 1-4 and then grab someone like Rivers or Romo in Round 5, but Brady's always there on the swing in Round 3, and I can never pass on him -- I was the same way with Jake Peavy in baseball for a few years.
I play with the same 11 guys every year and although it's random every year, I always draft between 10 and 12 every damn year. So I've kind of always loaded up on WR and hoped for a couple mid round RB's to pan out. No matter what my RB's never pan out. I usually get QB late, but after drafting Moss in the first I grabbed Brees in the second (6 pts per TD passing). Then tried the RB thing which hasn't panned out and took the flyer on Jackson. Watching all the Jackson trade talks has really sucked and I now hate AJ Smith for not dealing him. Seeing Randy Moss get traded to Minny hasn't done me much good either as I also have Shiancoe (No Show) as my TE. Basically every week I pray that Brees, Randy Moss, and Santana Moss go off and everyone else just gets a cheap td or somehow puts together a decent game. Hasn't worked at all yet.
BTW, Moss is to me as Brady is to you. Every year since I draft around #11, Moss is there for the taking and I never really care for the RB's left. Last year I grabbed him and Andre Johnson as I had the 12th pick and got Favre as my Qb in the 10th. Even with that base, I couldn't do shit as my RB's were God awful (I drafted Lynch and Ward as starters...the ultimate underachievers last year).
