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. It’s exciting to pull out your semifinal game by just a few points, and it’s exciting to have a chance at the championship. Having that…… Continue reading Week 16 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: All the marbles? But can’t I just keep at least one?
I hope this week matters to you. It certainly matters to me. I’ve made it this far in the playoffs, and I don’t plan to stop until I get a championship. There’s a theme this week out there. I’ve noticed it. It’s Jamaal Charles love. Try and find someone who hates him this week. Other…… Continue reading Week 15 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: Who’s Going to Win Me My Championship
I thought we’d do things a little differently this week. By this point, I expect that most of you know who you are starting and sitting during these critical weeks of the fantasy playoffs. As such, I don’t think you’ll need as much help deciding which players to start and sit. Trust is as important…… Continue reading Week 14 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: You Know Where This is Going
This week either means the world to you or doesn’t matter at all. It’s an interesting part of fantasy football. Few will panic over their lineup this week unless they are on the edge of a playoff seat. Those of you who have secured a playoff birth are probably just riding most of the same…… Continue reading Week 13 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: The One that Matters Most with Miles Austin, Mendenhall, and Antonio Bryant
Thanksgiving is a time for giving thanks. You should pause for a moment and think of all the players you have to thank for getting you where your fantasy team is today. Thank you, Terrell Owens, for going off the week we finally gave up on starting you. Thanks so much for being worthless just…… Continue reading Week 12 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: Carson Palmer, Michael Crabtree, Steve Smith, and Pilgrim’s Pride on Turkey Day
I know nothing of Twilight. I like it that way, but this debate that’s been raging across all my television channels, including my sports channels, has annoyed me to no end, especially because they used my name. From what I can gather, my namesake Jacob is a werewolf who is loyal and the complete “nice…… Continue reading Week 11 Hot Hand and Cold Shoulders: Twilight Edward vs. Jacob, who ya got?
It’s good that it only comes after bye weeks are over when rosters have, for the most part, been figured out. Otherwise, Thursday Night Football would be a real pain. Instead, it’s just kind of a pain because you have to remember in the middle of the week, just after setting your waiver wire claims…… Continue reading Week 10 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: Thursday Night Football is for Lovers
I watched Any Given Sunday last night. Twice. No matter how many times you watch that movie, it makes you want to run through a wall, and then a pack of linebackers, followed by another wall. Every. Time. I didn’t even need to drink coffee this morning. I’d already run out of walls. (Okay, that’s…… Continue reading Week 9 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: Any Given Sunday
I once heard that Peyton Manning can hear us think our own thoughts. In the huddle, he thinks so hard that the middle linebacker opposing him get headaches. Headaches lead to fear; fear leads to anger; anger leads to hate; and hate leads to Manning’s audible at the line that allows his laser-sighted, rocket arm…… Continue reading Week 6 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: A Week Without Peyton Manning
