Re: Me doing POW thoughts

From what I understand, it's my decision on the players of the week for the American Conference weeks 1-8. If it's my choice alone, I would like to put some things out front to make this an enjoyable process for everyone.

First and foremost...please be respectful if you ask me why I didn't choose your guy.

There are 16 teams worth of players to choose from and I can only pick 1 from each side of the ball. There will be several worthy choices each week and given time, I plan to explain my thought process behind the choice in what can best be described as the honorable mention section.

If anyone wants further explanation I can give it, just ask nicely. Any posts or PM's that start out with something like Hey dumbass will be ignored by me.

I can say now that my choices will likely always be from a winning team. Players with great stat lines on losing teams will be included in honorable mention but it's hard for me to justify giving one POW with rare exceptions.

I really wish hurries and catch allowed % were included in the box score rather than digging through team's game by game stats, those can be helpful in breaking up a logjam of similar basic stat lines. One game in particular in another league I had one DE with 4 sacks, the other 3 but the one with 4 sacks also had 11 hurries while the 3 sack guy had but 5.

Those 11 hurries make the 4 sacks stand out, which is what I'm looking for in a POW.

That's all I can think of right now, been a long night of work and I have an allocation pick coming up in 40 minutes.

I am also doing POW as well. For National Conference, weeks 1-8. I didn't know if I was going to make a post about it or not. But I pretty much just planned to pick an offensive and defensive player for each week and write a little explanation why in a post.

And I mostly agree with everything you stated here.
I'm going to try the best I can be to fair and not pick the same player or players every week. But then at the same time, I'm not planning on picking someone from a team just because the owner complained that they were never picked or what not.
It's definitely going to be a tough decision every week, because there are several great players to choose from. But overall, I'm just going to select the guy that I think played the best game and that made the biggest impact for his team.
