Without football, they’ll have to find someway to…… Continue reading 5 Ways to Replace Monday Night Football During the NFL Lockout
Is there anything sadder than two coaches from the worst teams in the league arguing about who cheated? There are sad clown faces, and then there are SAD CLOWN FACES, people. I’m pretty sure half the NFL wishes that this game wasn’t even televised. It might fool some people into believing that the Browns and…… Continue reading On the Wire: Week 12 Pickups, Playoff Prep, and Matt Leinart
The NFL should really give all the bad teams the same bye week. Just wait until all the worst teams have shown what they are made of, take the bottom half of the league and give them a week off to heal their wounds. Hey, we could even give the Rams a whole season off.…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts: Terrible throwbacks and games to throw back
The final weekend of the preseason might be the worst week as an NFL fan. Starters play only a few minutes while coaches get a look at the rest of the depth chart to make final cuts, and we all know that in just one more week the games will actually mean something. While the…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts: Are you ready for some football?
Unlike me, you may not have been following all the NFL news since the offseason began. Sometimes people have lives. That’s okay — so I am told. In order for you to keep your edge and get in the right state of mind now that football is only a few months away, you just might…… Continue reading How about that Rundown: Things you should have known before the 2009 NFL Draft
Note from Jacob: Somehow, after a rager of a game of Monopoly — yes, we are five years old — and a weekend of fantasy football talk, we got Chadam to disagree with Nick on some of this week’s picks. Oakland Raiders at San Diego Chargers Fools Take: CHARGERS (-9) over Raiders Nick says: I…… Continue reading A Fool and His Money in Week 14
It’s go time. Once again, a ‘$’ marks all of Nick’s locks of the week while a ‘#’ marks all of Chadam’s locks. Thursday Night Football: New York Jets at New England Patriots SPLIT DECISION! Chadam Takes: Jets (+3) over PATRIOTS Nick Takes: PATRIOTS (-3) over Jets In taking the Jets, Chadam says: I’ll admit,…… Continue reading A Fool and His Money in Week 11
No intro. No nonsense. This week, we’re all about the picks, now featuring “locks” of the week. Note: The ‘$’ will signify Nick’s “locks” of the week from this point forward while a ‘#’ will mark Chadam’s favorite bets. New Orleans Saints at Atlanta Falcons Fools Take: FALCONS (+0) over Saints Nick says: I think…… Continue reading A Fool and His Money in Week 10
It’s time for change, America. Bring me your injured, your underperforming, your studs gone duds. Together, we can reshape your fantasy team for the future into a team without injustice, without phantom starts (see: Willis McGahee) and without any of Shanahan’s running backs — well, maybe just one. Yes, we can. Yes, we can. YES,…… Continue reading On the Wire: Waiver Wire Free-for-all from Week 9
These sudden, mysterious and largely unreported injuries have got to stop. Last week, Carson Palmer was a late scratch. This week, the victim was Matt Schaub, who was hit by a virus the night before the game. I normally set lineups Saturday night and then let them run, but this sudden injury plague makes me…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts on Week 5: And another three bite the dust?
