It’s insanity. That’s what fantasy football is when it comes to the playoffs.

At least Chris Johnson…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts on 2009 Season: So why didn’t we all draft Chris Johnson?
I really hope that the scoring change on Kurt Warner’s touchdown pass to Anquan Boldin didn’t burn you. That has to be the worst kind of pain in the world.

I watched the UFL game last night, and it wasn’t even like the accidentally-left-it-on-that-channel kind of watch. I actually watched it. It was far more interesting than watching Missouri spank Nebraska in the rain. J.P.
