Going pack for pack with some guys at lcs.( contenders letdown)
So I wanted to check contenders out today but didn't have enough for a box. There was two other guys thinking the same thing. We went pack for pack for a little while until we ended up finishing one box and getting half way through another. After all said and done I had four autos, all on card which is cool. Mikel leshoure, Roy helu, Vincent brown, and jerrel Jernigan, the other guys pulled another 3 of no namers and a redemption. What's with this product? That's a big chunk of both boxes with very little to show?

I had a lot of luck with them at the beginning but after my last 4 i'll never buy them again this year .....you seemed to hit a few nice ones though....good pick ups imo

That's what Contenders has been for the last several year. We all get caught up in the hype, then are in for a let down because of the large rookie checklist. The good thing about Contenders is if you do get one of the auto of a better player or a future breakout player, the values hold strong. You pulled a couple potential breakout players that are worth holding onto IMO.

Right on u guys made me feel a little better about it. Just thought if I had bought those two full boxes I would have been real upset. I like the leshoure and helu.

Ya man, those could be some solid cards, especially if Manningham leaves NYG - Jernigan could step up as a solid. Helu looks like he could emerge the main back in WAS (depending on Shanny of course), and Mikel will come back this upcoming year with a bang (and help push DET through the playoffs)

I hate the thought of leshoure beating out best or best having to retire blah

Yea, I wouldn't touch best's cards with a 10ft pole, concussions keep repeating for him, hard to avoid them once you get one or two like that. Ask Sydney Crosby, if he can remember...

the good news is that other than Leshoure, all of those guys at least played in the NFL last year - and Leshoure is sure to be back.

maybe you got one of the SP variations as well.

Watch the highlights from last year Chargers-RAiders games and you should feel a lot better about Vincent Brown - especially if Vincent Jackson leaves, he's going to be starting for the Chargers and he looks like he could be very good once he gets a chance to start
