Cool The Bill Gates Challenge, Part I: In The Beginning...

For those of you who are unfamiliar with The Bill Gates Challenge, the following is a repost of my anti-Cowboys dynasty from the old FOFC forums. If you are new to the Challenge, enjoy! If you are familiar with it, just be thankful that reposting it keeps me from creating more polls...


Winner of Best FOF Dynasty at the First Annual Golden Scribe Awards



During the spring of 2000, in the middle of the United States' investigation into Microsoft's allegedly unfair business practices, Bill Gates decided he needed to find a way to improve his image with the American public. While reading the Wall Street Journal, he stumbled across an article that claimed football was America's favorite sport. Immediately, he hit upon the idea of buying an NFL franchise. Being a bit of an egotist, Bill naturally wanted to own the most popular team in the most exclusive club in the world -- the NFL owners club. Having heard the Dallas Cowboys frequently referred to as "America's Team" by his ignoramus sports-watching cousin, Bill decided that he wanted to own that team. Surely then he would share in their popularity, and America would love him!

Quickly, Bill's secretary got Jerry Jones on the line and offered him a cool $600 million for the team. Sadly, Jerry said he was not willing to part with his Cowboys, as a few of them had managed to avoid going to jail up to that point.

Outraged, Bill offered him $700 million!
No.

$800 million!
No.

$900 million!!
No.

Surely the fool wouldn't turn down $1 billion!
No.

Furious, Bill slammed down the phone, and started to plot his revenge. Thus began Part I of: The Bill Gates Messes With Texas Challenge!

By 5 o'clock that night, Bill had collected the best and the brightest in Seattle: Sports writers from the Seattle Post, financial analysts, lawyers - league commissioner Paul Tagliabue was flown in too. Even a medium was brought in to channel Pete Roselle's ghost.

If I can't have the Cowboys, then I will destroy them! I'll pick them apart piece by piece! I will ruin them financially! Jerry Jones will be reduced to selling pencils on the street corner just to eat!

But how?

One of the sports writers suggested buying another NFL team.
A great idea! But which one?

How about Seattle's own, the Seahawks?
Quickly it was noted that they were one of the worst franchises in NFL history. THAT wouldn't bring Bill much prestige.
The Seahawks were out!

How about the Raiders? They're always moving around.
Nope - Al Davis would never let them go, and besides, they were AFC. Bill wanted to compete directly with Mr. Jones and his precious Cowboys.

How about the Rams? They seem to be quite good this year.
No, they need to be in the same division as the Cowboys, you fools!

The Redskins? Daniel Snyder is a moron - maybe he'll sell them cheap!
But, they just built a new stadium recently - they can't be moved for over a decade!
Unacceptable!

Philly?
It was noted that overzealous fans might very well try to kill him in revenge for taking their team. Those guys are animals! They would boo the Pope!
No thanks!

The Giants? They're in the same division. They'd go head-to-head twice a year!
But we need the team to be closer!

Hesitantly, it was pointed out that they have a decrepit stadium; if Bill could get the voters to reject building a new stadium for the Giants, he would be free to move them anywhere. Why, they could even be moved to ... Dallas!

10 minutes and $600 million later, Bill Gates was the proud owner of the New York Football Giants. Everything was starting to come together for Billy Boy...

At this point, Bill hired me, Kodos (Kang had other obligations and was unavailable), as general manager of his new team, based on my repeated attempts to take over the world and subject humans to my every whim. He said he admired that kind of ambition and ruthlessness.

He had several objectives for me as his new GM:

1. Dallas must be beaten on the field and off the field
2. Jerry Jones must be made to suffer financially.
3. I must successfully drive the Cowboys out of Texas and make the Giants the new "America's Team."
4. I must move the team within the state of Texas - the closer to Dallas, the better.

He informed me that money was of no importance to him. All I need concern myself with was achieving the above objectives. He said that as long as I stayed on course for those objectives, I would never be fired, no matter how much money I lost.

Being an aggressive-minded kind of guy, he also told me he wanted me to concentrate on building an offensive powerhouse the likes of which had never been witnessed before in NFL history. He wanted flash, he wanted style, he wanted fireworks.

I was to disassemble the Giants completely and rebuild them from the ground up.

I was only to use draft picks on offensive players. No pick could be wasted on a defensive player, with one caveat: I could draft a defender if he was from a Texas college, since that would help me build a fan base and steal fans from Dallas more quickly.

I was to use only undrafted players to build my defense, with one more exception. I was free to sign any player (offensive or defensive) away from the Cowboys.

I could not sign any free agents except for re-signing my own players, or signing Dallas players who were currently without a contract.

Otherwise, I could only sign undrafted free agents after the draft.

I was free to accept any trade offered, but could not propose any trade that involved players. I could only propose trades for draft picks.

Whenever possible, I was to steal the Cowboy's best free agents - again, cost was of no concern. I must make every effort to sign Cowboy free agents who were deemed to be popular or gifted players.

He also said I must compete at the highest level - Wall Street.

With these things in mind, I began my career as the GM of the New York Giants.

2000 Regular Season

During the 2000 season, I barely got my feet wet, not bothering to change the roster and quick-simming through the entire season. This is not the meat and potatoes of this dynasty, and none of the current players will be with us after the initial season or two.
With the team on autopilot, Bill and I spent the fall strategizing about the future. Here are some brief highlights and then we can move on.


The final standings for the meaningless 2000 campaign were as follows:


Arizona 10-6
Dallas 8-8
NYG 8-8
Wash 8-8
Philly 2-14


Our first head-to-head against Dallas went like this:


Game 1

Box Score: Dallas Cowboys at New York Giants.

Attendance: 75,100 (78,000), No-Shows: 3,000.

We're off to a good start (not that it really matters -- it may give these New Yorkers a thrill to see their Giants win, but to us it could not matter less).

So there you have it. We split with the Cowboys during the regular season. Big whup. 8-8 meant no playoffs this year - but again, who cares? Right now, all we want is to get out of New York and into Texas. Only when that is accomplished will we turn our attention to building a team in our image.
2000 Super Bowl

Alright, if you must know, here are the results of the 2000 Super Bowl:


Green Bay (14-6) 19
Baltimore (13-6) 14


Happy now? Go Cheeseheads!


With the offseason here, the real work begins. Time to propose a new stadium -- a stadium that's sure to be rejected!

Behind closed doors, Bill & I have drawn up plans for the most expensive stadium possible, and here's the kicker: we're asking the public to pay for it all! Let's see how dumb these New Yorkers really are!!!

Here are the details:

New Stadium Proposal for Giants (in New York)

Type: Outdoor/Natural Grass


Capacity: 99,900
Club Seats: 19,900
Luxury Boxes: 399



Expected Cost: $268,000,000
Team Contribution: $0
Request From Public: $268,000,000


Results of the proposal will be announced after the Draft in April. Until then, we will do GM things and act like we care about the team.


So for now, I must take my leave of you, but I will be back soon enough. I'll leave you to wonder what Bill and I must wonder:

HOW WILL THE STADIUM VOTE GO?!?!?


Stay tuned!

2001 Offseason - Building A Dynasty

Through the winter and into the early spring, Bill and I played the part of the caring GMs. We signed some free agents, released others, and drafted a bunch of nobodies with no future on our team. You should have seen how excited those morons were on Draft day, wearing their ugly Giants jerseys and cheering like giddy little schoolgirls. You'd think that we had just drafted the messiah; at least if you didn't know any better. Those pathetic fools!

Finally, the time for the vote on the new stadium drew near. What if these mindless dolts actually agreed to pay for our new stadium? We'd be stuck in the Big Apple for another 15 years! Surely THAT couldn't happen, could it?

Could it?

2001 Stadium Vote

To: Bill Gates
From: The County Government
Subject: Stadium Vote

Your proposal for new stadium construction was submitted to the voters of your county for a decision.

The issue failed. We hope that you do not view this as a referendum on the viability of football in New York, but we understand that you are now free to seek a new stadium elsewhere. Please try again next year, however. You may find the voters more amenable.

Here's the final vote tally:


Rejected: 2,730,639 - 57.4%
In Favor: 2,020,506 - 42.5%


Thus began our love affair with 57.4 percent of voters in NYC.

Oh, and don't worry. Bill and I would never "view this as a referendum on the viability of football in New York." Heavens, no!!!

Arizona 10-6
Dallas 9-7
Wash 8-8
Phil 6-10
NYG 5-11


What are they feeding them out in the desert? Oh well, not really too concerned with the old W-L record for now. We've got research to do on where to go in Texas.

Looks like once again we split with Jerry Jones and Co. While beating Jerry does feel good right now, Big B.G. and I always keep in mind that this isn't our real team yet.

Well, that wraps up the 2001 campaign. Time to head into the all-important offseason. Bill and I haven't decided where to try to move to yet, but we have the list narrowed down to a few lucky cities. Just like in real estate, our game is all about LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION!

2001 Super Bowl

For you trivia buffs, here's what happened in the 2001 Super Bowl:


Arizona (12-7) 18
New England (14-5) 42



Looks like Arizona didn't have enough Wheaties left for the Super Bowl. But you gotta like ANY team that sweeps the Cowboys!

TO THE OFFSEASON WE GO!

2002 Offseason

With the offseason comes the time to propose a stadium deal to our prospective new home in Texas. Bill and I have three main criteria for that city:

1. A close proximity to Dallas
2. A decent likelihood of a successful stadium proposal (a rejected stadium deal would set back our plan 2 years!)
3. A strong desire for a new team

We came up with a list of three cities to be final candidates: Houston, Waco, and Dallas.

While Dallas would of course be our ideal city, the desire for a new team in Dallas is 0%. A very tough sell. Houston, on the other hand, has a high desire for a team, but is too far away for our liking. We want to be right in their face! Thus, our city of choice is Waco. A scant 89 miles away from Dallas, it should be possible to take fans out of their seats and put them into ours.

There are a lot of question marks though. The population is small (200,000), the growth rate is only 2.0% (far from ideal), and the average income is a low $26,500. Poverty is a harsh 21.3%. None of these factors seem very encouraging. If we propose a stadium, it will have to be small to have any chance of passing -- that much seems obvious.

Some good news is that Waco is in the 35th percentile for competition for entertainment. We could literally be the only game in town.

As a trend setting city, Waco is merely average, with a 56th percentile rating.

What gives us a glimmer in our eyes is their desire for a new team -- a healthy 70th percentile ranking! We can work with this!

Having selected our city, Bill and I hammered out the details of our proposal. In stark contrast to our over-the-top New York game plan, our modest proposal to Waco is this:

2002 Stadium Proposal to Waco

Stadium Type: Outdoor/Natural Grass (a grass field is a bit more expensive, but we hope it will limit our team's injuries in the future)


Capacity: 59,200
Club Seats: 0
Luxury Boxes: 0



Expected Cost $200,000,000
Team Contribution $100,000,000
Request From Public $100,000,000


Bill would gladly foot the entire bill, but league rules dictate that we can only pay for half of the stadium, with the taxpayers footing the rest of the bill. Bill and I figure that $100 million is the most we can ask this cash-strapped area to pony up, so our plan is limited to $200 million for the whole stadium. No luxury boxes, no club seats.

Nothing to do now but wait until after the draft for the vote. If this proposal passes, it won't be by much...

Cross your fingers, folks! It's gonna be a close one...

I was actually going to ask people for suggestions for a team name (maybe even run a little "name-the-team" contest) when the team moves to Texas. Looks like you guys have already started!

I was thinking something along the lines of the Waco Wackos or the Texas Cowboys (we all know Bill's penchant for stealing other people's ideas and then not hiding it very well.) Anyhow, keep the suggestions coming! I have an idea for what I will do when the time comes, but I'm open to suggestions.

Hey Alf. I don't really like Gates OR the Cowboys. In real life, I am a Dolphins fan, though Jimmy Johnson and Dave Wannstedt have gone a long way towards ruining the team for me. I am a big Marino/Shula fan, so these are dark days in Miami as far as I'm concerned.

Anyhow, I'm enjoying playing the two huge egos (Jones and Gates) off of each other in this dynasty. It's my first dynasty on Wall Street level and my first one that I've done a dynasty report on. I have a Rochester (NY) Inferno dynasty that I did on the easy level just to learn the game. I'm really curious to see if it is possible to run an established team out of town. I guess time will tell!

The Great Roster Bloodbath of 2002

Well, now that we are definitely going to Texas (and don't have to try and present the image of a competitive team in order to lure a city into taking us), we are free to get down to the business of tearing down the Giants and rebuilding the team from scratch. To accomplish this, we first cut all of the nobodies. Then, in a move sure to cost Jerry Jones some sleep, we traded all of our best players to Washington and Philly, in an effort to help them help us crush Dallas' spirit and fanbase.

After extensive research, we determined which players on each team were the most overpaid, and then traded our best guys in exchange for them. The players acquired in these trades were then cut from the Giants, who absorbed all of the accelerated bonuses for the players who got cut.

Gifts to Washington:

To Washington, we dealt Jessie Armstead (LB), Ron Dayne (RB), Luke Petitgout (G), C.J. Matheny (WR), and Jeremy Lee, a promising young CB.

Gifts to Philadephia:

To Philly, we dealt Jason Sehorn (CB), Tiki Barber (RB), Ike Hilliard (WR), Sean Bennett (RB), and Keith Hamilton (DT).

Gifts to Miami:

Due to a personal fondness of Miami, we dealt to them Michael Strahan (DL) and Amani Toomer (WR). Call me a sentimentalist, I guess!

Now, some of you are probably wondering about the wiseness of trading your best players to division rivals, but I guess you could say we are thinking a bit "outside of the box." Bill and I figured that by the time Bill Gates Stadium 1.0 is complete and we are ready move to Texas, these guys will, for the most part, be retired from the league, or washed-up has-beens. Since we aren't worried about our record until we get to Waco, why not let our best guys (who we can't keep anyway) go to our division mates, so that they can beat down the evil that is Dallas. Also, this method ensures that Dallas won't get an opportunity to sign these talented players.

It's called evil genuis, folks, and we got it in spades!

And The Rebuilding Process Begins...

With our entire roster now cut or traded, it was now time to sign some players. Bill and I sifted through the entire crop of first-year free agents, and let me tell you, it was slim pickings. We signed 52 men to one-year deals for $250,000 each, and one promising rookie QB was signed to a 3 year deal for a higher salary, but no bonus, so we can cut him if he doesn't pan out. Besides, after all the cuts, we were about $57 million under the cap, give or take a million. We can afford to splurge a little.

With our 53 new players signed, we headed to camp. True to form, we emphasized offense, with the I Formation, Split, Strong, Shotgun, and Goaline formations all pegged to the right. Weak and Single-Back were pegged to the left.

On defense, the 4-3, Nickel, and Zone were pegged to the right also. The Dime was slightly left of center, with everything else all pegged to the left.

For the most part, special skills were ignored, except for punt and kick returns, 2 minute drill, and red-zone.

We don't expect to win much this season (we may run the table and go 0-16). If we are lucky, we will find a player or two worth signing again next season, and maybe a few solid backups. Anything else would be icing on the cake.

Bill Learns Revenge Ain't Cheap!

Before the 2002 Exhibition season starts, I thought it would be interesting to give you some info on the financial aspects of Bill's little venture so far.

For the 2001 Season, our balance sheet was like this:

We generated $85,910,000 in Revenues, based mostly on the TV Contract ($26,920,000), Ticket Revenue ($25,880,000), and Suite Revenues ($23,150,000).

However, our costs totalled $103,980,000. Player contracts ($46,030,000) and Coaching Staff costs ($35,000,000) made up the bulk of our expenses.

These factors combined to give the Giants a net loss of $18,070,000 for the 2001 season. When Added to the $600,000,000 Bill paid for the team back in 2000, and the $20,000,000 or so lost during the 2000 season, Bill's scheme has so far cost him about $638,000,000 dollars. And that's BEFORE he's paid one cent of his $100,000,000 commitment to building Bill Gates Stadium 1.0.

Who knew revenge could be so costly?


Season Team Losses
2000 $620,000,000
2001 18,000,000

Total $638,000,000

Quid Pro Quo

Following training camp, the St. Louis Rams saw fit to offer us their 3rd round pick in the 2003 draft for Darnell Fox, one of our linebackers. We accepted this happily and then signed some other bum to take his place. It's all about the future, folks!

It looks like our Season Ticket sales have dropped from around 76,000 on average to 69,500, out of the capacity of 78,000. Some folks are smartenin' up, I reckon! Not too many though.

2002 Regular Season

Well, let's just say the 2002 season left us some room for improvement. We went 1-15, with our only victory coming against Washington late in the season.

The Final Standings for 2002 in the NFC East were as follows:


Dallas 10-6
Washington 8-8
Arizona 8-8
Philadelphia 7-9
NYG 1-15


2002 Playoffs

The playoffs started off badly with Dallas knocking off Detroit 38 to 13 in the Wildcard Round.

The Divisional Playoff Round was worse, with Dallas crushing St. Louis 27-9 (I guess Darnell Fox wasn't so good after all!).

Finally, Green Bay annihilated Dallas 29-3 in the NFC Championship, and order was restored to the universe.

2002 Super Bowl

Despite their admirable thrashing of Dallas, Green Bay went on to lose to Indianapolis in the 2002 Super Bowl.


Green Bay 17
Indianapolis 20


Edgerrin James earned the Super Bowl MVP award, while Marshall Faulk earned NFL MVP honors for 2002.

As for us, we knew 2002 would be bad, and it was. But we accomplished some goals. First off, we absorbed some of the salary cap costs from cutting the entire team. After next season, we will be free and clear. Second, we found a player or two worth keeping for next season (more details in the offseason). Third, we earned the number one pick in the 2003 draft (well, maybe EARNED isn't the right word...). And finally, we took our first steps toward rebuilding the team and sending Jerry Jones and his Cowboys packin'. Baby steps, Bill always tells me. Baby steps. Even Microsoft wasn't built in a day.

2003 Offseason

Many heads will roll after our showing this season.

Telling Statistics

Our best rusher averaged 2.4 ypc, for 280 yards on the season. None of them will be returning.

Irv Evans threw for 2000 yds, 11 TDs, and 13 INTs, for a 64.9 QB rating, which was just stellar when compared to Edwin Waddle's 836 yds, 2 TDs, 12 INTs performance, which got him a whopping 34.9 QB rating.

We had one decent performance at WR from Kyle Diaz, who racked up 1117 yds and 4 TDs with nobody to help him. We will definitely try to sign him to a multi-year deal. Gilbert Lake and Cris Dixon managed around 500 yds and 2 TDs each. If desperate, we will re-sign them.

On D, we had some okay performances:
Josh Lyle made 101 tackles, C.J. Dunn made 91, and Donnie Sullivan had 88 tackles.

Five defenders had 3.5 to 4.5 sacks, but no real standouts.

In the End of Season Power Ratings, we got a 1.

Supply And Demand 101?

Fan loyalty has fallen to 56.

In light of this, we decided to jack up the prices about 20% across the board, and added on $2000 seat licenses. Don't blame us if people buy 'em for a team that will be gone in 5 years.

Finances, Schminances

Team profits for 2002 were up 22% over 2001, meaning our losses were 22% less than last year.

Revenues were $89,520,000, with a similar breakdown to 2001 revenues.

Costs were $103,590,000. Player contracts dropped from $46,030,000 in 2001 to $14,700,000, but Player Bonuses shot up to $20,490,000, compared to $12,600,000 in 2001. The biggest increase in costs came in the Scouting Staff budget, which shot up from $4,500,000 to $27,000,000, or a 500% increase.

All of this combined to give the team a $14,070,000 loss for the 2002 season, down from $18,070,000 in 2001.

In total, this puts Bill's losses so far at around $652 million. You may not like him, but the guy sure ain't cheap!


Season Team Losses
2000 $620,000,000
2001 18,000,000
2002 14,000,000

Total $652,0O0,000

Let The Sabotaging Begin...

During the offseason, Miami offered us their 3rd Round Pick (8) in exchange for QB Terrance Fitzgerald. Since he was not a franchise QB in our eyes, we accepted the offer.

At the beginning of free agency, we set our sights on stealing Dallas' star tackle Erik Williams (who was rated as "Idolized") and TE David LaFleur, who had good ratings across the board. Since Williams' loyalty rating was "Very High" (87%), we doubled his requested signing bonus and surpassed his salary request for each year. Our strategy worked, and Williams signed with us after the first round of free agency. Our first defector!

With Williams in the fold, we turned our attention to LaFleur. St. Louis topped our intial offer, but we outbid them, and LaFleur eventually signed with us. 2-for-2!!! After this, we decided we had done enough and that there were no further Cowboys worth stealing.

We turned our attention to re-signing some of our own players. Kyle Diaz was our first re-signed player, landing a three-year deal based on his production in 2001.

Many of our players were demanding much more than they were worth, so we let them test the waters of free agency while we prepared for the 2002 draft.

The 2003 Draft: This Time It Counts!

Well, the Bears were apparently inspired by our successful vote on the move. They attempted to move to South Dakota, but the fine people of Sioux Falls (both of them) rejected them. Learn from the masters, boys!

For the first draft that actually mattered in our short history, we had possession of the first pick overall. After careful analysis, we didn't see anyone on the board worthy of that pick, so instead we traded down for the Bear's 1st(11th overall) and 2nd round picks.

Our approach for the draft was to start building the offensive line first, so by the time we get a franchise quarterback in a few years, he will have a solid line to protect him. To this end, we hoped to take Clyde Hare, a 6'7", 298 pound guard with potentials of 95 run blocking and 100 for pass blocking. By trading to the Bears pick, we gambled, hoping that we could still get our man at the 11th spot and pick up an extra 2nd round pick. Unfortunately, Hare was taken by Cincinnati at pick 6, and so we made Junior Adams, a 6'8" 286 pound tackle out of Southern Mississippi, the first meaningful pick in the new era of our team. In the second round, we chose quarterback Ralph Porter, a 6'6" 225 pounder who likes to scramble.

Here is our entire draft summary:


Rd Player Pos. College
1 Junior Adams T Southern Miss.
2 Ralph Porter QB Texas A&M
2 Harvey Kegley RB Iowa State
2 Tracy Long C Stanford
3 Kenneth Jacobs RB Auburn
3 Jimmie Willis G Northwestern
4 J.T. Kearse FB Robert Morris
5 Albert Cartwright QB Missouri
6 Perry Bishop DT Texas-El Paso
7 Spencer Bell WR Southern Methodist


Hopefully we have taken our first step towards a bright future, and not misstepped. The team must be ready to take on Dallas the season that we move to Waco!

Though our salaries are low, we still have a lot of bonus money to pay out from last year's roster bloodbath. Next season we should have more money to spend.

New York Gets Smarter...

Season ticket sales fell again. This year, we only sold 48,000 out of our 78,000 capacity. We are losing New Yorkers in droves! But who really needs 'em?!?

Uhhh, Porter? Don't Bother Putting That Jersey On...

Following training camp, Cincinatti saw fit to offer us their first round pick in 2004 in exchange for rookie QB Ralph Porter, who we drafted in round two of this year's draft. Since he didn't seem to be earth-shatteringly good, we accepted their offer without hesitation. Our offensive line is not complete yet, and there will be other QBs to pick in the future. In Porter's place, we signed first year man Brian Richmond out of the available free agents.

2003 Playoffs

It will do you Redskin fans good to know that Washington advanced from the Wild Card round (beating T.B. 24-10) to the Divisional round (beating Minnesota 31-3) to the NFC Championship (beating Arizona 21-18) and went on to win the 2003 Super Bowl over Oakland, 27-24. It looks like maybe those players we sent their way helped out. You're welcome! Dallas hates you, we love ya!

Dallas, in stark contrast to the Skins, lost to Arizona 29-22 in the Wild Card round. To quote Nelson Muntz, "Haaaa-ha!"

Stephen Davis captured the Super Bowl MVP award, while Corey Dillon (the big jerk) grabbed the NFL MVP for the season.

Thus went the season of two thousand and three...

Thanks for your support, guys. It's nice to know that somebody is reading this stuff. It's more time-consuming than I thought to report a dynasty! But if people are enjoying it, that makes me happy. Any suggestions for stuff you'd like to see more of (or less of)?

As a side note, if someone could give me a list of Texas schools in the game, that would be great. I've never been to Texas, so aside from the obvious ones like Texas A&M, I don't know which schools are Texas-based and thus fair game in the draft for me.

Thanks!

Great style, and a great idea - make your team a success AND destroy another one. Love it.

Other than the obvious ones I think these are the Texas schools in the game:

Baylor
Houston
Prairie View A&M
Rice
Southern Methodist
Stephen F. Austin

And yes, I voted for you.

2004 Offseason

It's About The Offense, Stupid!


We began the offseason by hiring Jerry Gibson (50 years old, no previous head-coaching experience) to a 5 year contract at $8,000,000 per season. Sure we overpaid, but Bill wanted this guy bad because he is known as an offensive genius. After last season's performance, it became obvious that we needed one of those...

His ratings are as follows:


QBs - Excellent
RBs - Very good
WRs - Excellent
OL - Excellent
DL - Good
LBs - Fair
Secondary - Excellent
Kickers - Excellent
Young talent - Good
Motivation - Very good
Discipline - Fair
Off. Playcall - Very good
Def. Playcall - Fair
Avoid Inj. - Good


2004 Free Agency - No Loot, No Plunder?

With that taken care of, we moved on to free agency. Unfortunately, it was a weak crop of free agents on Dallas. We wanted to sign Solomon Page, a devastating guard, but he was Franchised. So, instead of stealing any Cowboys, we re-signed and renegotiated some of our own guys and moved on to the 2004 draft.

Bill's Bills

Here's a quick update to Bill's expenses so far in this venture. This year, we lost a whopping $134,600,000!!!

Table of Losses:

Season Team Losses
2000 $620,000,000
2001 18,000,000
2002 14,000,000
2003 134,600,000

Total $786,600,000


That's pocket change for old Bill (net worth 59.7 billion)!!!

Franchise...Value...Plummeting!

Finally, I leave you with a table of the Franchise values in the NFL. The New York Teams are doing themselves proud!

Team Stadium Roster Support Economy Franchise Value
Washington 80 55 99 60 $611,110,000
Philadelphia 76 63 80 58 $576,800,000

2004 Draft

The 2004 Draft found us once again with the top pick overall. Our scouts homed in on three guys to possibly use the pick on.

The first was Gary Copeland, a 6'2" 317 pound guard out of Texas-El Paso. Our scout rated him at 45/84 for run blocking and 43/82 for pass blocking.

A second option was Al Ingram, a 6'6" 211 pound terror out of Southern Methodist. Our scout rated him 52/99 on run defense, 48/91 on pass defense, 53/99 man-to-man, 54/99 zone, with an endurance rating of 54.

The third man under consideration was Lake Strickland, a 5'11" 199 pound RB with a 65 breakaway, 61/100 short yardage, 86 third down, 60/90 ypc, and a 59 catch rating.

It was a tough call, but considering Bill's rule about only being able to draft players out of Texas on defense, we decided that we couldn't pass up on the chance to get a dominating defender like Al Ingram. Thus, we selected him with the top pick of the 2004 draft.

Strickland was taken by Baltimore with the third pick of the draft, while Copeland went to Seattle at the 7th spot.

With the 27th pick of the 1st round, which we obtained in exchange for rookie QB Ralph Porter from Cincinatti after training camp last season, we selected Glen Battle, a 6'7" 289 pound guard out of Penn State. Joe Pa assured us he would deliver for us, and who are we to doubt Joe Pa? Our scout rated him at 33/67 for run blocking, 33/68 for pass blocking, and 65 for endurance.

2004 Draft Summary:


1(1) Al Ingram LB Southern Methodist
1(27) Glen Battle G Penn State
2 Keith Bennett WR Kentucky
3 Bill Berger QB Texas Christian
4 Zack Guthrie FB SW Texas St.
5 Scott Myers RB Texas Tech
6 Jerry Farley WR Georgia Tech
7 Craig Gilmore QB Utah

Bring The Whole Family - There Are Lots Of Good Seats Left!

The 2004 preseason saw fan loyalty drop to 39%. The Giants sold just 39,700 season tickets for the season out of a capacity of 78,000.

Following the draft, we signed all of our draftees. Notably, Al Ingram was signed to the largest contract in the new era of our team. The terms were 6 yrs, $40.95 million with a $19.8 signing bonus. He BETTER pan out or we are screwed!

Question

2004 Training Camp - Momma Always Told Me "Training Camp Is Like A Box Of Chocolates..."

We came out of training camp with some good news, some better news, and some bad news.

The good news was that Al Ingram did not bust (thank you, lord!). The better news was that an undrafted free agent signee, first year DT Jackie Tuten, had a breakout camp; Cory Wells, our head scout, rated him with a future of 100 for run defense AND pass defense, with a 97 endurance to boot! WOOHOO!!!

The flipside of this was that guard Glen Battle, our second first round pick this season, was a total flaming bust! Thanks a lot, Joe Pa!!! (Even Joe Pa can be wrong? ) After camp, we cut him loose and signed another first year guard in his place.

Uhh, yes...What's Your Return Policy?

A phone call to Cincinnati was made to inquire if we might get Ralph Porter back, but they said no deal...

Game 2 (Week 15):

This game did not go as well. As has been the pattern, we won the first game versus Dallas, but lost the second one. After benching Bill Berger in favor of Lionel Sawyer and then Craig Gilmore, Gilmore had given us a decent performance in Week 14. We gave Gilmore the nod versus Dallas, but it didn't turn out nice. It wasn't his fault though; Sean Bennett lit us up for 250 yards and 3 touchdowns on 26 carries (a 9.6 yard average ), with a 77 yard run being the most horrific play. Here are the gory details of a game I'd rather forget:

2004 Regular Season

Sadly, Game 2 versus the Cowboys was more reflective of our season than Game 1 was. In hindsight, we should have called it a season after week 1. After that, we took a lot more lumps than we gave out in 2004.

Final 2004 Power Rating: 23

So, we did improve in some areas in 2004, including a running back by committee attack that finished 8th in total rushing. We also finished a respectable 17th in sacks, bolstered by Jackie Tuten's 7.5 sacks and Eddie Butterfield's 7.0 sacks. But all-in-all, we've still got a lonnnnnnnnnnnnng way to go to get to the top, especially on defense and in the QB position. We look to address some of these issues as we head into the offseason.

I think Al Ingram is panning out nicely, thank you very much! And Tuten should
