Help! - This Steelers Fan Is A Fantasy Football Dud

In the interest of fairness to my fellow competitors, I won't ask anyone to coach me along this season, but I would still like to hear your input on my most recent fantasy football draft.

Here's how it usually goes for me in fantasy leagues. I throw one together on the site, I fail to adequately prepare for the draft (including even familiarizing myself with the scoring system), I draft willy-nilly with no real concrete plan, and I proceed to get hosed.

With the stage set, allow me to present to you two fantasy rosters, both drafted this past Sunday in the official 2008 BTSC Fantasy Football League.

 I will withold any and all judgments about said rosters (except to say it's a 12-man league) until some of you who are better players than I chime in with some observations and comments. Then, perhaps I can fill in a few blanks about the league. Anyway, a fun (and rare) fantasy football retreat here on the site. This will only take a minute for those totally uninterested in fantasy football, and remember, you can still take a crack at some (free) $ and bragging rights in the Pick 'Em Challenge (scroll down the main page a few stories for details).
