I had the same problem myself, I think my first thread back in 06 asked if we needed a new DE, it was locked soon there after.

Here was my jenuis idea for a new thread.
http://www.thewarpath.net/redskins-l...ss-rusher.html (Pass Rusher)

I ended up making something like 4 new useless threads from 1-18-06 to 1-22-06. So I was pretty bad myself during my initial period.

Quake though went on a terror. During his first 7 days he made 8 new threads, mostly on slightly odd topics. His saving grace was nice formatting on the titles.

Mark Brunell, Phillip Daniels, Renaldo Wynn, Shawn Springs ( 1 2)
EARTHQUAKE2689

Dwight Freeney to Skins? ( 1 2)
EARTHQUAKE2689

Nate Clements Versus Fred Smoot
EARTHQUAKE2689

Alan Branch versus Gaines Adams and Jamaal Anderson ( 1 2)
EARTHQUAKE2689

Quake, as well as my own initial experience, is the reason though why I always give new members who cause chaos and mayhem a second chance. Though guys that go a little crazy when they join could easily end up being some of the forums more productive members. Granted I'm still trying to be a productive member but I think I'm on track. AceInTheHouse for example, was a guy I figured for a Quake like turn around but he hasn't been around lately.
My first thread title was so brilliantly named "Carlos Rogers." I think it was made right after we took him, and in the middle of posting it Detroit took Mike Williams, who I wanted. It only took 5 years and a change of teams but MW has finally started to pan out haha.

Slightly odd, those things were about as farfetched as tryfuhl's "ask me anything" thread. Man I miss those days.

I really liked Calais Campbell coming out of college. These are the years that every analyst said we needed a d-lineman and we never got one. Campbell is now a freaking beast for AZ.

Re: One year on the Warpath.

Exactly 6 1/2 years for me, since everyone else is doing it.

My first thread was a strange one.

http://www.thewarpath.net/parking-lo...-for-sale.html (Replica of Roethlisberger's helmet for sale.)


Someone was selling an EMPTY box on eBay, advertising it as Roethlisberger's motorycycle helmet.

I forgot all about that stupid move, getting in a motorcycle accident with no helmet right before training camp. He's done so much worse since then that we forget about something so minor.
