With only two games in the late portion of today’s schedule (WHY ONLY TWO NFL?), we get to focus on the one of the bigger news stories going on right now, and that’s Cam Newton sitting in week one.

“Ron Rivera’s comments throughout the week indicated Newton might very well not play this week as the Panthers take the “long-haul approach” to their franchise quarterback. If Newton is out, Derek Anderson will get the nod. The Panthers are probably confident Anderson can do everything they need for offensive purposes, but it’s obviously a significant drop-off from what Newton brings to the table.”

Hahaha, “probably” confident.


I said this earlier, it wasn’t the most graceful written piece of news I’ve ever read, but to be fair, most tweets aren’t. In addition, I feel good tho.

Also mentioned earlier, I would be wanting all the escape values the Panthers have today. And that’s Greg Olsen. And also Greg Olsen. He is a must start. On the flip side, I am liking the Tampa Bay defense a bit more as well.


Late Games

Panthers vs. Buccaneers — We get to watch Derek Anderson try to throw touchdowns… probably to both teams. Let’s see what happens.

49ers vs. Cowboys — What happens when an unstoppable force (49ers offense) meets an immovable object (Cowboys defense)? We won’t find out, seeing as how those teams are not those things at all. Like, at all. Unless you define an unstoppable force as a streaky string of both good and bad, and you define an immovable object as a dumpster fire.

    Hey Jay

    I’ve been playing in a 10 team just for fun league for the last 5 years. This year right before the draft the comish changed the league to a 14 team 10 bn spot money league. I’ve never played in a league this deep before and I wasnt prepared to draft this way…

    Is this a good team for this league format or should I try to get out before I have to pay?
    (standard settings no ppr the only difference is that 1 pt for every ten return yards… patterson finished last year as the top receiver in the game and hester and jacoby were 17 and 18…)

    QB M Ryan
    RB Murray
    RB Ellington
    WR D Thomas
    WR Patterson
    TE Gates
    OP J Cutler
    K Santons
    D Bucs
    C Johnson, Sankey, L Miller
    J Locker
    Bills D, Browns D
    K Wright, Hester, J jones
    C Clay

    Thanks a lot Jay I appreciate the advice!

      @Scooter G: That seems kind of wrong that he would do something like that. Was it at least put up to league vote?

      For such a deep league, it’s a good team. A lot of risk at RB though, and Gates already has a hammy thing going on. Depth is okay, moreso at WR, so I’d try to see what’s out there on the RB waivers.

        @Jay: at least give youse guys a few days to prepare for that (and maybe get a loan to pay for it if need be).

    i’m guessing you’ve never tried to move a dumpster fire? it’s pretty hard to move, actually.

      Jay says:

      @goodfold2: well, let’s suspend reality on this one then.
