OK, let's see what the excuse will be for not playing Jerome Harrison now. Too much Peyton Hillis love?

Peyton Hillis was the Jerome Harrison of Denver, so either way it's a win. I love both of those guys.
Grabbed Harrison in round 14. Hoping it works out...
He lasted until the 14th round in your draft? Holy moly.
Seriously. I think I took him in the 7th?
The rest were afraid to take him. I didn't realize he was still there until after I'd picked up my targeted players, like Brees, etc.
So is there a consensus nowadays on the impact of an ACL tear on a player? Does the knee remain weakened or is it returned to as good as new, and if so how quickly?
From what I understand repaired ACLs are actually stronger than the original one.
It takes about 18 months to fully recover, however.
I just traded for Harrison a week ago, but the good (non-ffl-dominated) part of my brain thinks this is really too bad. The few times I saw Hardesty this preseason he looked like the real deal --- he hit the hole fast, angry, and with his pads low, and he was hard to tackle.
Also, Harrison has been all fumbly this preseason, so I still wouldn't be surprised to see him on the bench opening day. (Sorry for the double post.)
Hardesty always looked good, but always was injured too.
Curses. I grabbed Hardesty as a late round flier, was pleased to see he was moving up the depth chart, and now this. Oh well, at least I have a spot for a backup QB now.
This is why you wait until the last minute to have your draft. I'll not be picking him tonight.
Seriously? Why would you possibly have had your draft last week?
My keeper league's draft was last Sunday. We've 20 owners, mostly married men with kids, spanning two continents and six timezones. That's simply the time we could get most people online, hence that's when we had our draft.
Critical games this weekend in the Pac-12, Big Ten, and ACC could go a long way in determining conference championships -- and maybe even playoff berths.
