brett-favre-peyton-manning

If I could describe this game in two words, they would be: Brett Favre. Or, as some pronounce it: Brett Fahhhhhhrvve. And if I could describe this game with more than two words, it would just be Brett Favre typed out a bunch of times. You should actually thank me, as I’m preparing you mentally for what will be a barrage of Peyton Manning/Brett Favre comparisons, graphics, anecdotes, and overall jaw stretching for those two quarterbacks during Sunday Night Football. If you were buried under a rock all weekend (which, if you were, maybe stay there?), you should know that Peyton Manning is just two touchdown passes away from matching the aforementioned Brett Favre for the NFL record. In what should be a pretty entertaining game, two of the winningest (is that a word?) teams since 2012 will face off, only be to overshadowed by a retired player who sends d*ck pics to ask women out. Why not just stick to trying to sell them your jeans? The 49ers have surprisingly and quietly won three straight after starting the season exactly how Seattle appears to be ending it, including a season-high 432 offensive yards against the Rams. Then again, it was against the Rams… who actually beat Seattle earlier today, so really, I have no idea what to think of the NFC West anymore. It’s weird.

 

Drinking Game

Note: Wine night! I’ll be drinking a cabernet sauvignon via Yellow Tail. 

Take one sip of wine if…

You see any type of Kaepernicking.

Brett Favre is mentioned in any context.

Harbaugh throws a tantrum.

Fog starts to come out of Cris Collinsworth’s mouth.

Al Michaels says “YUUUUUUUUUUUUGE” in any context.

Harbaugh makes a punchable face.

Finish your glass if…

You see John Elway neighing in the booth.

John Fox shows an emotion.

You wonder why Jack Del Rio still has a job coaching in the NFL.

    At this point do you think Keenan Allen is worth holding onto in a keeper league?

      @Bobby: “Danny Amendola will not land on the IR for at least two more weeks. Wait. Actually, that might be too bold. So how about Keenan Allen will have top 10 wide receiver value for the rest of the season? There are a lot of reasons to not believe this, and those reasons are named Antonio Gates, Malcom Floyd, and Eddie Royal. Also, if I did the math right, he’s had a total of 3 receptions and 4 yards for the season thus far. But believe it or not, Allen still leads the teams in targets (42), and has been bogged down by an under-reported quad injury. As his health improves, you’ll see him move away from being a decoy/blocker and be the receiver he was last season. And I think that starts this week against the Chiefs.”

    i thought i had the WAS QB situation filled up in my 20 team dynasty league with RG 3 and Cousins. nope, somebody beat me to McCoy. should i stick with Cousins or grab Mallett/Clipboard Jesus/Garopplollololo. Also got beat to B.Brown (who i actually drafted with this team so long ago (2 months)

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @goodfold2: Oh wow. I think you might have to go Clipboard Jesus… but even though Cousins is mediocre, I just can’t imagain Colt McCoy having any prolonged success.

      • goodfold2 says:
        (link)

        @Jay: i literally had no clue this could happen (re:mccoy, that dude was MUCH worse than cousins last time he started anywhere), so when i wasn’t near a computer during early games i got double screwed. b.brown is worse for me , obv, since RG3 will likely be back soon. Anybody else see how right Tehol was about D.Robinson or Todman being better options than Storm J? Unless of course, F Jax comes back soon, then B.Brown probably not a big deal.

          Jay says:

          @goodfold2: Yeah, I think part of it was a rush to find something relevant on the Jaguars offense.

          • goodfold2 says:
            (link)

            @Jay: yeah, but like Tehol said, why not go with Todman, who was good last year.

    • goodfold2 says:
      (link)

      @goodfold2: wow, in other league i went with SD over IND, figuring KC’s offense is much worse than Ginger bastard’s all stars, and now gotta hope i can waiver IND for later.

      • Jay

        Jay says:

        @goodfold2: Yeah, but the Chargers D is missing like 48 players from injury.

        • goodfold2 says:
          (link)

          @Jay: yikes, wish i would’ve just held still with IND, that extra 13 pts could determine my fate in that league, i have a 37.9 pt lead up against arian and crabtree, which site has going into game as near wash, so i’d have been pretty decent favorite with IND, wish i would’ve just not looked at who was dropped on WED. looks like IND might not be just a good fantasy D, but actually projectably good as well. Can grab IND or MIA in this one for next week.

    My roster QB Aaron Rodgers WR TY Hilton, Kelvin Benjamin, Andre Holmes, Michael Crabtree, Brandin Cooks, Malcolm Floyd and my RB Eddie Lacy, Andre Ellington, Fred Jackson, Rashad Jennings, Pierre Thomas, is my team better overall from this trade? Thanks for everything!

      @Dom B: Yeah, I think so.

    was able to bench patterson (even in league with .1 pt per return, which i refused to do until today, since last week i didn’t know how hurt he was). i lost around 6 pts putting in j.jones instead of him, but i’ll take it (i’m still very very likely to win). in this same league (where i used to have best team (after week 4), now with Natural Light Ice (ryan) being shitty for 3 str weeks i’m middle of road. anybody else getting worried about ryan/julio with 3 ugly games in a row (2 for julio)?

    Could you give me a couple of examples of RBs that would be fair return for Julio Jones? Thanks

    standard league with these RB and roster is 2 RB/2 WR or TE/ 1 WR or RB
    spiller/ivory/a.will/bell(PIT)/hill. what is likely waiver order for pickups (ROS in mind here, as i already was kinda weak at RB depth, now it’s really bad)
    dixon/denard dog/greene/pierce/helu/b.brown/blount/CJ?K/todman/taylor/blue? probably should have grabbed mcfadden like 2 weeks ago in this league.

      • Montezuma's Revenge... right now says:
        (link)

        @Montezuma’s Revenge… right now: gonna be able to pick up 2 of these guys, this is a team that isn’t mine but i help run. i told owner that he didn’t want to have 2 QB and depth at RB/WR is why, and now he agrees, we could’ve had mcfadden/mckinnon and others many weeks ago instead of backup QB (this week became K since he has parkey).

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Montezuma’s Revenge… right now: Yep, Mck is a good example to point out why you don’t need that extra QB. I’d go for Denard and Dixon, but everything else is kind of trashy.

          • Montezuma's Revenge... right now says:
            (link)

            @Jay: i know it’s trashy, but that’s what’s out there, and maybe something good breaks from that shit sack, like brown overtaking dixon, gray being used on NE, having my own handcuff in blount, greene gets his starting gig back, morris gets hurt for helu etc. what’s top 3-4 after dixon/denard dog, since at 11th on waivers (getting a.will and ODJ cost something), there’s about no way i’ll get dixon or denard dog. With depth falling off i gotta try to arm myself against the dying of the light.

              (link)

              @Montezuma’s Revenge… right now: one thing i could do is grab blue right now (before monday’s game) just in case arian gets hurt in that game. other than that though, i gotta think 4 of those others have better prospective value, since blue sucked when he actually played.

              • Montezuma's Revenge... right now says:
                (link)

                @Montezuma’s Revenge… right now: i can’t do the blue thing, i forgot that could only be for somebody else either on bye or that plays for PIT/HOU.

    good work on the mason call (you were earlier than pretty much everybody, and even some around here didn’t agree mason was better to have than cunningham, just yesterday)

      @Montezuma’s Revenge… right now: I get a bunch wrong too, but I thought I definitely saw something last week. Despite the fumble at the end of the game, I liked what I saw again.

        @Jay: Sweet, thanks Jay. By the way, apparently Peyton Manning broke some sort of record tonight?

          @Shane: also did you kno Julius Thomas played basketball?

            @Zandy: Didn’t Jimmy Graham play basketball too? I think an announcer once mentioned that.

    Sell high on Hillman? I also have Jamaal, Gio, Rashad, Tre and Knile. Other factors: my single QB (Kaep) is on a bye this weekend and I have no D because I have been hoarding RBs (natch!)

    • Scott says:
      (link)

      @Scott:
      and hoarding WRs apparently: Antonio Brown, Percy Harvin, Brian Quick, OBJ, Mike Evans and Jordan Matthews. Should I drop any or try to trade?

    • Jay

      @Scott: I’d sell Hillman, yeah. Not high on him.
