Yes, there were some choice news items between the Eagles trade of LeSean McCoy to yesterday’s whopper (with cheese, mind you), and of course they occurred while I enjoyed Spring Training in Phoenix. But I’m back and here to make amends, and it’s as if I was astoundingly prescient with knowing when the right time was to come back to report on all the NFL news items missed. Late yesterday afternoon, the New Orleans Saints traded Jimmy Graham (BUT DOES HE PLAY BASKETBALL?) and their 4th round selection to the Seattle Seahawks for Max Unger and their 1st round selection in the upcoming draft. The move clearly shows two things: First, the Saints are clearing large amounts of cap space. When you combine this transaction with their other releases and pay cuts, you might call this a heavy re-tool. Also, it will allow Breesus to really live up to his name by carrying this now heavy cross. For the Seahawks, well, I guess if you don’t fire your offensive coordinator for a questionable call that may have lost a Super Bowl, I guess quelling the masses by getting the best (or second best, depending on what the Gronk injured) tight end is a strong plan B. Intrestingly enough, though both McCoy and now Graham have moved within a week, elite players at their respective positions, you can make an argument that then the Eagles, and now the Saints had pretty good returns. I mean, if you’re going to burn it down, burn that f*cker down right, amiright folks?Please, blog, may I have some more?
I was the number one seed with only one loss on the season. I scored the fourth most points last week… and I was upset by the eighth seed who scored the third most points. Final score: 133-132. Maybe a Thursday Elias scoring change… nope, still a loss. If one of these things happen, […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Fantasy Football thoughts and opinions heading into NFL Week 1. New Orleans 34, Green Bay 42 I think the NFL should have used this version of an American anthem to kick off the season.

Good news, you can stop holding your breath. Individual Defensive Player top 100 revealed (***waves smelling salts at computer monitor***). These rankings form an upside projection, position scarcity, injury risk analysis, and playing time composite, which equates to a tackling and tipped pass totem pole of tremendousness.

You down with IDP? The fantasy team defense is dead. Not quite as poignant as Nas’s take on Hip Hop, but if you dare to venture for a more organic form of fake pigskin explore picking defensive players individually. Odds are if you’re reading this you’re either already in an IDP league or at least […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Doc’s note: In IDP leagues you have to be sure to check the scoring system before you go all hog wild with our rankings here. Lawrence gives us his top 50 for IDP, but if a deflected pass is worth 30 points, adjust! 1. Patrick Willis, ILB, SF — The best there is in IDP […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
