2012 Mid-Season Forum Mock Discussion
 
We're a little over a quarter of the way through the 2012 NFL season and there have already been some requests to do a forum mock.

The plan is for me to extrapolate a draft order based on the results so far this season and complete 3 rounds of the 2013 draft.

Sign up is simple. Simply send an email with the following information to me at forummockbb@gmail.com:

1.) Username:
2.) Cell Phone #:
3.) Preferred Teams:

Your cell phone number will only be used for me to text you when you are up if you wish. It can be helpful to avoid me picking for you and you can also text me your pick if you are unable to get to a computer.

If you are willing to take any team, please say so. It helps us fill up faster gives me more flexibility when assigning teams. I know some of you frequently take teams that aren't your own, so if you really want your own team this time, let me know and I'll do my best to get you that team.

Please also include if you are willing to work with a Co-GM. Co-GMs are expected to work together and to keep eachother apprised of possible moves or deals. Both will have the power to make trades or selections.

There will be a 2 hour time limit for the first round and a 1 hour time limit for all other rounds. The clock will stop between Midnight and 9am Eastern. These are the hours I will be awake and most active, so please send big boards if you aren't going to be around during that time.

Speaking of boards, Please for the love of god send them if you aren't going to be around! This makes things easier and more efficient all around for everyone.

Additionally, the time limit is not for you to sit around and wait for a trade offer. Please try to work those out before hand via conditional trades. (Ex. If player A is on the board, this trade goes through. If not, no trade.) If it is your pick and I see that you are only wasting time waiting for a trade, I reserve the right to cut your time limit in half. I will be fair and if I can tell you are actively working on one, I won't penalize you. But sitting there asking "does anyone want to trade?" over and over while wasting time will not fly.

To submit a trade, have both parties send me a PM, email or message on IRC if I am there. I must receive the details from both sides. You can send it via any of those methods, just make sure it gets to me.

Also, all trades must involve at least one draft pick. No player for player trades here. I reserve the right to veto any trades that I find unrealistic. In pick for pick trades, try to stick close to the "Official Trade Chart" though I won't force you to be exact.

Another thing, please sign into IRC when you can. It's helpful for discussing the draft and working out trades and such. You can login here: http://www.gamesurge.net/chat/ I'll be on when I can. Channel is #forummock I think. (Someone can correct me.)

Use your username from here when you sign it. It can sometimes be helpful to add a "(Team X GM) after your name so people know.

I'll take email applications until I can fill up all the teams. I don't plan on taking a team, though if there are leftovers, I'll step in.

The plan is to take applications this week and start up with a time limit on Wednesday Oct. 10. The reason for this is because I will not be around at all this weekend. I will give everyone a few days to sign up and I will also try to PM the regulars to make sure they are aware of this.

If nobody takes the Bucs, I'll take them. If someone wants them, they can have them.

ImBrotherCain 10-01-2012 09:58 PM

Don't let Chucky... I mean Caddy in. Hes just going to troll.

The second record listed is a projection based on how I see them finishing. The playoff teams are fleshed out appropriately with each division winner represented (**) and two wildcards from each conference (*). I'll probably write a little blurb for each team about how they came to end up where they did as well.

I'll probably readjust a bit after this weekends games before we start drafting, but that is my starting point.

We've got 17 applications so far, but a couple of those are guys requesting to co-GM the same team. So we're about halfway filled up with with a few days to go. There are a few regulars whose applications I haven't gotten yet, so I'll PM them soon.

Like I said in the email I don't have a problem GMing any team. I would prefer the ones I listed and if you need/ want to put me with someone to co-gm that is cool with me.

princefielder28 10-03-2012 12:30 PM

I'll send an application some time today

redbills 10-04-2012 03:15 PM

I picked the Bills as a wildcard team before the season and, god dammit, you're going to at least get a little closer here than you probably will in real life!

TheBoyWonder22 10-04-2012 03:25 PM

I'll sign up later tonight.

9ers gonna kill us in SF, then ARZ should as well at their place, then who do we have? O yea the fing Pats in New England, 64-28? Maybe a few late TDs for the Bills? Then we give us as there in no fing way we make it at that point.
We suck, Fitz sucks, Wanny won't change the D, won't make adjustments or bring more than 4. The Bills bar is so low not even james cameron can find it.

scottyboy 10-04-2012 03:27 PM

i could co with the giants or something. yeah

Matthew Jones 10-04-2012 09:05 PM

It might be a good idea to use modified power rankings for a draft order to avoid an argument. Copy the week five power rankings of ESPN, NFL.com, or whoever in reverse, and then edit it so that the six highest ranked teams from each conference according to the site make the playoffs.

Meh, I like mine better. Takes into account a prediction for the rest of the season. I'll adjust it again before we start up to reflect this weekends games.

Matthew Jones 10-06-2012 04:24 PM

By the way, what are we going to do for underclassmen? Is there going to be a list posted?

CJSchneider 10-07-2012 08:38 AM

App sent. Sorry it took me so long to respond.

Yes, I'll make a list.

Also, I didn't forget about this. This is just the first time I've been in front of the computer for an extended period today. I'll have more information available tomorrow.

I have a list of notable underclassmen, maybe that could help.

Yeah, I wouldn't include ALL of those guys, but I'd probably add a couple of more than just the bolded ones. I'm usually pretty liberal for in-season mocks with underclassmen since there will always be a few surprises of guys who come out and guys who stay.

Right, that makes sense. I wouldn't mind a few surprises (especially if you're going to write a little article of the declarations!) but for someone like Logan Thomas who is struggling through a disappointing season, it wouldn't really make sense to enter a loaded QB class, even if he would be a relatively high pick.
