Updated: Wed, Nov. 11. I’ve been in California this week at a conference. I don’t know how these people handle football starting at 10 a.m. on Sundays. It’s just plain weird. But the important thing here is that I haven’t had Internet all week. Sorry, hotel, but I am not going to pay a limb…… Continue reading On the Wire: Week 10 Pickups, Slim Pickings but Quick Mobile Picks
Baseball stole our Sunday Night Football. How is that fair? Give it back, World Series. I demand it. I’m fine with baseball as long as I don’t have to sit through an entire game. In my opinion, it should be played in highlight form, jumping to the major parts and leaving out all the rest.…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts: Marc Bulger and Sunday Night Sadness
I got stuck watching the New England Patriots abuse the Tampa Bay Buccaneers across the pond in London during the early games. I thought we sent this game overseas so that no one here would have to watch it? While the action was riveting, oh, so riveting, I found myself checking my fantasy football scores…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts: Magical phone refresh voodoo makes Vernon Davis score touchdowns
Patrick Crayton just straight up offended me by complaining that he wasn’t told that he was being replaced in the starting lineup. Seriously? But seriously? But seriously? I guess he was the last to know. I knew two weeks ago. Let’s just drop the act, Crayton. You saw Miles Austin have the best day of…… Continue reading Week 7 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: LenWhale fall down, go boom
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
It’s the debate that began as soon as the Cowboys released Terrell Owens: Where does Tony Romo rank without his prized target in the passing game? I’ve exchanged emails with fellow Fools writer Chadam and several other fantasy football compatriots since my post on the release of the infamous No. 81, but I’ve been reluctant…… Continue reading Without T.O., is Romo still an elite fantasy quarterback?
According to ESPN, the Dallas Cowboys just cut Terrell Owens. Not only does this defy some good logic, it also might be the best move for the Cowboys after all. Jerry Jones obviously spent a lot of time over the offseason speaking to his coaching staff and players about what went wrong in the bust…… Continue reading T.O. got to go: Cowboys cut controversial receiver
Since “Pacman” Adam Jones’ release, the talk of the Dallas Cowboys has been change. If not at the coaching position, currently filled by the Pillsbury Doughboy Wade Phillips, fans are crying out for Terrell Owens to get out of town. But that’s just crazy talk. Jerry Jones recently pointed out his silence as a hint…… Continue reading Why T.O. will be a Cowboy in 2009
It’s very likely that you have already tried to snag some of these guys. In fact, you might have had them on your roster, dropped them, picked them back up, dropped them again and let some other team roll with them for a week or two by now. But maybe it’s time to pick them…… Continue reading On the Wire: Waiver Wire Sneak Attacks from Week 7
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?
