People say you can’t learn anything this late in the season. I say people are wrong. Why, just look at this past week. Personally, I learned it’s a bad idea to back up a cold weather QB (Jay Cutler) with another cold weather QB (Ben Roethlisberger). I learned that when a team promotes the former […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
–Eli Manning was missing half his offensive line, most of his receivers, and the full love and affection of his parents, and still managed to score 21 fantasy points by completing a couple of long passes to his tight ends, and tossing two scores while remaining turnover free. He only connected four times with wideouts […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
-In case you needed a reminder, here it is – never start a running back against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Not even the studliest of the studs. Chris Johnson, Michael Turner, Ray Rice and Peyton Hillis all took a crack, and none came away with more than 42 rushing yards against the league’s best unit. Darren […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
-The only thing worse than having one of your studs grossly underperform, is having one of your studs grossly underperform on Sunday night. The only thing worse than that, is having one your studs grossly underperform on Sunday night because they weren’t given the proper opportunity to do their studly things. That was the case […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Joe Flacco was serial-killer methodical in slicing up the Dolphins pretty decent secondary. He only threw 27 passes, but completed 74% of them, mostly underneath, and had two scores. That’s called using the rope the defense gives you to strangle the living crap out of them, and it’s what Flacco’s been doing most of the […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
I didn’t think it was possible, but I found reason number 1,356,976 to hate Tim Tebow – he’s officially become a touchdown vulture, the vilest creature known to fantasy footballers. He scored his second short touchdown in three games this week, and is in the process of eliminating any chance Kyle Orton has of accumulating […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
I’m sure all the Dwayne Bowe owners appreciated the six receptions, 108 yards, and two scores (though I have a feeling more than a few had him benched after his terrible start to the season). What they couldn’t have appreciated was the “stickum” touchdown celebration after his first score. Sure, it was a nice catch, […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
For me, the most intriguing action of Week 5 didn’t even occur on a playing field. It happened in an interview room in the Cincinnati clubhouse, and involved Michael Irvin and Terrell Owens. Let’s just say, if you had Week 5 in your “when will T.O. poison the Bengals locker room” pool, you win. In […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Is it just me or can you picture Pete Carroll eating fruit snacks, drinking chocolate milk, and sleeping in a race car bed? Don’t get me wrong, I love the guy – his constant whooping seems genuine, and I dig his video game play-calling style, but I can’t shake the impression that he’s really just […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
This whole Steve Smith and Mike Williams thing has gone on long enough. It’s time to give them identifiable names and be done with it. Here’s my suggestion: Steve Smith of the Panthers becomes Steve Carolina-Smith. It rolls off the tongue, and would really piss Smith off because it makes him sound like he hyphenated […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
