This is the most random assortment of anything that I have ever seen…

While I would normally expect this game to be somewhat close because of the prime time slot and storied rivalry, I just remembered that Jim Haslett is still employed. So expecting this game to stay competitive, for at least one quarter, may be asking too much. Especially since Tony Romo and DeMarco Murray have lit Jerry’s world (aka his loins) on fire with staggering competency and production. Words that usually aren’t used to describe those two. Romo has 14 touchdowns and only 6 interceptions with 1,789 yards, and December is still far off. Murray became the first running back in history to start a season with seven straight 100-yard games. Washington doesn’t really even have a functional quarterback strategy at this point and are sliding in the NFC East with a 2-5 record. If this is an intentional strategy to get out of the spotlight from having a team name that’s a slur, well then, job well done.

 

Drinking Game

Note: I’ll be doing Stella Artois for the beer portion, and Vodka for the shots portion.

Take one sip of beer if…

RG3’s injuries (knee or ankle) are mentioned in any context.

They show the jumbotron.

The camera shows Tony Romo sitting on the bench causally watching the jumbotron.

Colt McCoy totally whiffs on a receiver.

Jason Garrett calls a dumb toss, reverse, or draw on a 3rd-and-five or more.

Gruden says something that is complete nonsense.

Take one shot of liquor if…

Jay Gruden looks clueless as to what is going on.

Jerry Jones is seen in the booth with a surly look.

Romonobyl happens.

 

Totally Legitmate Game Prediction

Washington Football Team – LOL.

Cowboys – 45, a career low points allowed for Jim Haslett.

    Tomorrow waiver question… Drop Michael Floyd for Cooks?

        @Jay: wow, who would’ve thought preseason, unless maybe if jimmy G died, AND palmer wasn’t playing.

    Through some stroke of luck, I have a stacked roster at pretty much every position except QB (playing matchups with Ryan and Palmer). How would you rank the following options for what I should do?

    A) Give up depth for an elite QB. I might (still negotiating) have the option to trade Ryan, D. Hopkins, Rainey, Mathews, and Donnell for Peyton Manning.
    B) Gain depth for an elite RB. I’ve been offered Brady, FJax, Gostkowski (who cares?), and J. Gordon for L. Bell. I’d also have to drop two non-kickers: probably Palmer and Ball.
    C) Hold. My team is 6-2 and, with Palmer healthy and Ryan’s schedule way easier after the bye, maybe I’m overthinking things to make a move.

    12-team, non-ppr
    QB: Ryan, Palmer
    RB: Charles, L. Bell, Bernard, Mathews, Rainey, Ball
    WR: Dez, Megatron, D. Hopkins, Torrey
    TE: Olsen, Donnell
    K: McManus
    D/ST: Seahawks

      @friar: A – I’d hold. B – Eh, I like your team right now, but it’s a fair trade. C – Yup.

      • friar says:
        (link)

        @Jay: I’m probably greedy and unnecessarily hands-on trying to trade for Peyton, but is there a more modest variation of option A that you’d recommend I offer in a trade?

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @friar: Ryan and Mathews maybe? You shouldn’t overpay that much.

          • friar says:
            (link)

            @Jay: What are your thoughts on Ryan, Rainey, Donnell, and Torrey for Peyton?

            Manning’s owner is actually in need of a massive infusion of playable guys, so prefers quantity over quality. This feels like a good opportunity to get a stud for players who will never see playing time on my roster (plus, I’d then have room for some speculative ww claims), but, to your point, I don’t want to overpay just for the sake of having a big name QB.

    ROS Michael Crabtree, Malcolm Floyd, Mike Evans

      Jay says:

      @Aragagag: Evans and Floyd are neck and neck.

  4. Allan says:

    Jay would you trade demaryius thomas, lacy, and ertz for a.j. green, kelvin benjamin, ellington and andre williams?

    • Allan says:

      Its standard and I have jennings.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Allan: I would hold.

  5. Roy Helu SR says:

    Hey Jay does Michael Crabtree have any fantasy relevance or should I drop him for mike evans

      @Roy Helu SR: He sorta does, but I’d rather have Evans.

      @The Thumb: Yeah, that’s probably a shot right there. Holy Gruden…

      @Dom B: Seattle by far.

    finally got team i help an owner with to drop his backup QB roethlisberger (already has romo) for freeman (should’ve went gray), since we lost spiller i told him having the backup QB he never needed kept him from stashing more RB’s (like mckinnon/mcfadden) that he now could very much use; now he wants to kill me (as if roethlisberger hadn’t been terrible for a month, and around 5 other free agent QB’s weren’t exactly as good as him overall). i was going to attempt to get a better RB than freeman (sims or gray), but our waiver is so low from getting a.will/beckham. rank these QB (at least 3 or 4). if romo is hurt or not he needs a 2nd QB. week 9 matchup listed
    roethlisberger vs BAL
    carr @ SEA
    mccoy @ MIN
    bridgewater vs WAS
    weeden (if romo’s out) vs ARI
    glennon @ CLE
    vick @ KC

      @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: I’d go Big Ben, and then Teddy there. I would avoid everyone else.

      And yeah, stuff like this happens. Would he feel any better if it happened on his bench?

      • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
        (link)

        @Jay: he actually would, since then at least he’d still have rapelisberger. He’s worried both romo will be compromised AND one of the 11 owners ahead of him (probably only 10, since gray is out there) will get rapelisberger, essentially he’d have gone from 2 QB’s to no useful ones but my good advice.

    Hey man I’m watching this MNF game & damn romo most def got injured on that unblocked sack, hoping for the best that it’s nothing; but doesn’t appear to be good.

    That being said my QB is brady but have romo for depth, I have a feeling (I could be wrong) that romo will be missing week 10 which is when I’d need him or a QB in general because that’s the pats bye.
    If romo is in fact missing weeks then I could move him to ir spot, if he isn’t would you do a drop of romo to add any of these?
    Big Ben (week 10 @ jets), kyle orton (week 10 vs Chiefs), mike Vick (week 10 vs steelers), flacco (week 10 vs Titans), austin davis (week 10 @ Arizona)

    Basically doing a drop of romo to add one of the qb’s above , or see if I can move him to ir, either way I may need an insurance at QB there

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Austin powers: He looked pretty banged up in his return, and I’d wouldn’t be surprised if he’s out that game. Keep an eye on the news, but that Big Ben matchup is probably the best one there. Flacco would be close too.

      • Carson Palmer says:

        @Jay:

        Me or Big Ben next week?

    My Ryan Mathews for his McKinnon, what do you think?

    RAMS diaspora time. STL lost 3 O-line guys. quick gone for season. quick done. i’m wondering is mason is even worth keeping now. not just due to non-sense “committee”, but can they really run ever again anyway. this lineup
    romo (at least he’s not hurt)/cutler
    ingram (he’s staring now)/miller/vereen/mathews/hill (PLEASE get hurt GIO so i can trade hill for WR to Gio owner)/mason
    garcon/julio/wayne/quick
    jimmy g/reed
    clearly i’m now dropping quick.
    1. are all of these worth trading reed for: adams/holmes/hopkins/evans/t.will/j.brown/a.johnson/v-jax?
    i already threw out offers for reed for either edelman/cooks
    2. try to trade reed and hill to Gio B owner for sanu? i really only need sanu to be good for a few weeks (when green’s back to really healthy i’m sure he’s not that valuable)
    3. drop mason for all of these (in this order), or just some of them?: gray/sims/taliaferro. i think hill has more value with somewhat banged up Gio B and Mason’s O-Line falling apart and going full blown committee disease. we can only start 2 RB. could also drop cutler instead (other than romo injury that was the plan) and reed but don’t know if i need 7 RB.
    4. what’s pickup order of these WR? (i need 1 minimum and if no trade gets done 2 of them dropping reed or cutler, unless i’m sure Wayne plays)
    moncrief/m.bryant/landry (.05 pt per return yard) wheaton/cooper

    guy just thought i might be freaking out about romo and tried trading me stafford for ingram (NOPE!). stafford ain’t worth much different than cutler or romo.

      @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: 1. Evans might be a nice option, depending on the price. It’s shouldn’t be exorbitant.
      2. I’m okay with that one, sure.
      3. I like Sims there, though there’s risk if Martin doesn’t get traded. No clue what to think of Gray, but I’m probably not buying him.
      4. Wheaton, Bryant, and then it doesn’t matter.

      And yeah, Stafford is the same tier as those guys.

      • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
        (link)

        @Jay: so in #1 all of those are decent for reed?, with evans being best. i’m thinking j.brown might not be. i need to send these offers off soon, as i’ll need to either drop or trade reed this week if wayne doesn’t come back just to have 3 WR starters, and it’s not like i can wait for late news if wayne misses time (i’d rather get some value for reed than simply dropping him for waiver level WR). it’s possible a-johnson/v-jax’s name values alone wouldn’t let me get them there. i only brought up names of WR on teams that might want Reed, not Olsen/Gronk owners etc.
        4. interesting you have wheaton ahead of m.bryant, it seems elsewhere it’s opposite.

    Best pickup in a PPR out of these WR’s? John Brown (@DAL), Donte Moncrief (@NYG), or Martavis Bryant (vs BAL)?

    I put their week 9 matchups because thats when I really need them.

    Thanks!

    why doesn’t everybody do that stills TD dance, that would rule. if RW3 is worried about getting the Uncle Tom stuff maybe he should just tell everybody he’s not black, but white. While this wouldn’t gain him likely anything with whites, it’d be an easy way of getting the brothers off his back. Either that, or start keeping it real and maybe punch out some of his WR’s, then he’d get some respect. Is it just me or do a whole lot of segments of society act almost exactly like we’re all in prison.
