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. Losman led the Las Vegas Locomotives, an engine of destruction, I’m told, to a come-from-behind victory against the California Redwoods,…… Continue reading Week 5 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: Pretty please, Braylon. Pretty Please.
You’re obviously starting your studs at this point. For many of you, it’s the playoffs. For others, it’s the last week before the playoffs (and you should hate that your championship game is in Week 17, where anything goes). This week, whether you are in the playoffs are about to be, is a critical one.…… Continue reading Week 14 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders
Now, don’t go quitting the waiver wire on me because you are in the playoffs.

Samuel is direly needed in New Orleans because their secondary was the wrong kind of holy last year. If they fork…… Continue reading Losman to Dolphins? Samuel to the Saints? Foster to 49ers? More free agency moves [NFL Rumors]
Several players are worth grabbing after performances this week–or finally be cleared by Johnny Law Chris Henry, WR Cincinnati Bengals Chris Henry got 8 touchdowns last year as the third receiver for the Bengals. You might remember him. He comes back Week 10 after serving his suspension from the NFL commissioner. Even though the Bengals…… Continue reading Week 10 Pickups: Returners and New Starters
Quarterbacks have a big load to carry. I know–that’s what she said, but it’s true. With the big paycheck comes the blame if the team gets off to a bad start or can’t execute in big games. Fans like to point fingers, and most of the time, they are pointing at the quarterback. This season,…… Continue reading Quarterback Evolution and Woes: Losman back, Pennington benched
