The playoffs are truly fickle. Just like your high school girlfriend (well, if you had a girlfriend), they tire of you after about two weeks. If you lost in Week 14, you can probably identify a few names on your new hate list, updated daily while you rub lipstick on your face and cry, from…… Continue reading The Team That Knocked You Out of the Playoffs in Week 14
In what was largely a return to form for the fantasy football community, several names you probably already know popped back on the scene.

Regardless, if they’ve been dropped or otherwise abandoned to the free agent pool, these guys are worth a…… Continue reading On the Wire: Week 7 Pickups, Drops and Names to Know by Now
Darren McFadden is the biggest fantasy football tease in America. If Keith Olbermann were still doing his “Worst Person in the NFL” segment, it would be Run DMC. McFadden is the flirt that no one ever dates, and the bane of many a fantasy football team. Draft him his rookie season? Oh, yeah, about that…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts: Darren McFadden is dead to me, make the Brett Favre stop and other tales of horror
While imagining the possibilities of Vince Young returning to his starting job — Hey, it could happen… Maybe? In special packages? — I contributed to a few other articles around the Web that I just wanted to share. While a little outdated after Laurent Robinson’s injury this week, I participated in the Fourth & 1…… Continue reading Shameless Plugging: Surprising Receivers and Disappointing Starts

Belichick cannot refuse.…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts: Wherefore art thou Patriots?
Ah, that was nice, wasn’t it? The start of the NFL season is just like taking a hot shower, and Week 1 is when someone flushes the toilet to give you that frigid, but refreshing, blast of unbearably cold water. Once you’ve recovered from the shock, it’s lovely, just lovely. This week, we’re looking for…… Continue reading Week 2 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: And who plays the Lions this week again?
As the NFL draft approaches, we all get a little antsy for football season to start.

I wouldn’t want to bet on many of the offensive stars being a factor, but there are a few players who should have an…… Continue reading Divisional Playoffs, Part 1: Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders
First of all, why are you guys still having your championship in Week 17? That’s like playing a game of chess for hours only to bring in toddlers to play out the final three moves. Why would you do that? And where did you get chess-playing toddlers? This week, I absolutely love everyone involved with…… Continue reading Week 17 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: Championship Edition?
As you might have guessed, my weekend didn’t quite go as planned. You see, I got a new day job in Dallas — and no, it’s not as backup quarterback for the Cowboys despite the fact that Brad Johnson didn’t put up much of a fight.
