I feel a bit like Mike Nolan this morning. A heart-wrenching, late pass to Eddie Royal caused me to lose by 0.10 points last night. A tenth of a point — seriously brutal. My fantasy team chose Week 7 to look like the Cowboys — full of talent but not producing. Speaking of Big D,…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts on Week 7: Wade Phillips would make a great Mall Santa
Technical difficulties with our Web host had us listed as questionable for Wednesday night, but as you saw Thursday, we showed up to play at game time. We aren’t wishy-washy like Wade Phillips. If we come into the game to answer your questions on Sunday, consider it a bonus. Hot Hands Matt Schaub, QB Texans…… Continue reading Week 7 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders
I am not sure who won the VP debate last night. Both political parties seem to believe their candidate stepped up to the plate. The NFL is still pretty split in making a decision this election year. I do know that Al Davis likes Sarah Palin — mostly because he believes she’s youthful and has…… Continue reading Week 5 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders
Where did that Carson Palmer injury come from on Sunday morning? I lucked out played against him this week, but I didn’t hear a word about it until I saw him putting up zero points heading into halftime. Enough with the quiet injuries already. I’m still shocked there was an Ocho Cinco sighting without Palmer…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts on Week 4: Postgame reactions to the week that fantasy forgot
Obviously, things change in fantasy football. There’s no Tom Brady, and therefore, no Randy Moss. Offenses in Seattle, Cincinnati and Cleveland are in shambles. Jacksonville keeps turning it over, and the Denver Broncos might have the most explosive offense of 2008. Shanny, we knew you had it in you. I won’t even say that I…… Continue reading Week 3 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders
Don’t get all reactionary when you are setting your lineups this week. If your stud disappointed in his first showing — and there is no evidence supporting his failure, i.e. horrible line in Jacksonville and St. Louis — just forget Week 1 happened. This week, we’ll move into more of a Q&A mode with the…… Continue reading Week 2 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders
Q&A QB is a head-smacking, hard-hitting, name-taking question and answer series where Jacob assists readers and his Twitter followers in perfecting their draft strategy and winning their league. If you’d like to be featured in a future Q&A QB post, send Jacob an email or tweet him (whatever that means). QUESTION: What are your thoughts…… Continue reading Q&A QB: Which Rookie Running Backs Are Worth Drafting?
Darren McFadden cooled worries about his on-the-field game by posting an impressive 40-yard dash. His official time was recorded as 4.33. (His first run was timed “unofficially” at 4.27). With that show, McFadden proved he was one of the fastest players in Indianapolis. He showed his burst speed, but doubts could still be raised about…… Continue reading Combine appearances moving stock for elite players [Combine News]
