Anyone read the Simmons-Grantland article. It's hysterical and makes me want to join in.

If anyone's interested I'm definetly down to actually do this...and for Sands. $500 entry fee?

Need 7 others.

Here are the rules:
The steps are simple:

1. Find eight people dumb enough to participate in a Bad Quarterback League.
2. Set the stakes.
3. Draft four NFL teams using a snake-style draft.
4. Each week, choose two teams to start (you can start a team no more than 13 times a season and no less than five times a season). Just so we're clear — you're drafting a team, and you get every quarterback on that team.
5. Check Grantland each week to get the scoring from the weekly scorecard.
6. Remember that every QB on your roster is eligible for 24/7 points. That means even if you didn't start the Seahawks on Sunday, you still get the 150 points when Tarvaris Jackson's penis appears on a blog on Tuesday.

The excitement and levity of our draft was refreshing. It was simple, quick, and people said things like “Are Jamarcus Russell and his purple drank still in the NFL?” No waiting around for hours, no third-string running backs, no “auto draft.” Just seven dudes and a girl trying to find the right combination of men who will fail miserably at their jobs.

Who's in?
