It's Coming!!!

That's right, it's about time for FFMD to start back up again and after a successful run last year it's time to top that this year.

There's been an influx of new posters this past year, and it's time to get them involved with the old balls. For those who are not familiar with FFMD, this is a forum wide mock draft where you (as a collective group) get to act like the GM of your favorite team. In a week or so, you'll be able to sign up to be the official GM of your team. If you are chosen, you can set up your staff including assistant GM and capologist.

For the newbies, check our last year's FFMD in the GM Mock Draft forum.

FFMD is an awesome experience that has you interacting with the other 31 teams in the NFL and several agents representing players in free agency. The draft portion is just as exciting as each team gets in their "war room" and once they are on the clock they come together with a decision.

Remember, we put this on as a fun thing so make sure everyone gets involved, and don't take this too seriously.

But unlike in the past, we're asking for a non-mods to help run this. We'll announce more when we post sign ups, so be on the look out for it.

Sign ups for FFMD are now open. They'll close February 1st (the night before the Super Bowl), so sign up soon or miss out.

What are some of the roles?
I do a lot of mock drafts, I would like to be involved in the draft process.

Lets get some interest going in this guys! I'm helping out in some other aspects this year, so I'm not really looking to take on the GM role. I'll gladly help out in some other capacity such as AGM or head coach.

SwiftTexan, here's the general gist of FFMD and the typical roles

Each team is represented by a group of people. Generally, Seahawk fans would play the part of Seahawks management, Ram fans would play the part of Rams management, etc. It's not restricted to that however. FFMD is a mock off-season. This includes franchise tags, free agency, and the draft.

The general roles are as such:

GM (general manager) - Leads the charge in all things, but still relies on his staff. While the GM is in charge and makes the selections as long as he is online, he needs to communicate with his staff. If the entire staff wants one guy and the GM wants the other, the GM should follow his staffs advice. With that said, he's the kingpin.

AGM (assistant GM) - The only other guy with designated GM powers. He's the right hand man to the GM, and he'll make the selections if GM isn't available.

Head Coach - This person should understand the scheme of the offense, defense, and special teams. They should know what type of players the team should pursue

Offensive Coordinator - Similar role to head coach but specific to offense

Defensive Coordinator - Similar role to head coach but specific to defense

Head Scout - Maybe this guy doesn't specifically focus on scheme fit, but he's really knowledgeable about the draft and the players available.

Now the roles are really just fun titles aside from GM and AGM. You can be the defensive coordinator and still play a big role on the offensive side of the ball for example.

I will take over all the duties of the Offensive Line coach.

Scouting Offensive Line, advising on matters down in the trenches, reviewing all the best restaurants, Giving out back massages to beautiful women, healing the sick with my super powers, walking on water and being a superb human being in general. Its tough but I can handle it.

So far, we've had no Seahawks posters show their interest in FFMD. We'd prefer to give it to a Seahawks fan, but other fans have expressed interest in any other team. If you don't want it going to a non-Seahawks fan, then sign up now.

I want to sign up for something. Ill take whatever role is left when everyone else chooses. It seems like every role is the same aside from GM usually anyways.

I'll take the GM gig as long as I can count on you guys to help me out and give me advice.

I'm surprised nobody else wanted to do it - I'm happy to do it but it kinda feels like I'm taking the Browns head coaching gig.

You're supposed to sign up in the mock draft thread. I put my name into that in case no one else wanted it
