  2. Fred Davis hurt

    Cooley tried to negotiate a case of beer into his contract... Love this guy.
  3. Fred Davis hurt

    Captain Chaos will make his comeback. I for one am glad to see the team show some loyalty to someone who put in so much time with them. Cooley deserves to be on a winning Redskins team.
  4. Oh man, this is gonna be a disaster!

    This will be the tipping point. The NFL is about to implode.
  5. Steve Sabol dies

    He changed the way our country watches football, and sports as a whole. My favorite Steve Sabol quote that rings true with everything NFL Films does - "we are not journalists, we are romanticists." Thank you for helping me fall in love with the game of football, Steve. Your voice and vision will be truly missed.
  6. Slipless in Seattle......

    And Golden Tate destroyed Sean Lee
  7. What do I do?

  8. My honest

    JPP and Allen is a great combo, and Washington/Wagner could easily be your starting LBs week in and week out. I'd go a different direction than D.J. though.
  9. Kellen Winslow Jr cut from Seahawks...

    He'll be a Raider before Week 2. No one is hurting at TE more than OAK.
  10. Ruud Traded to Saints

    Very possible that Ruud could be starting MLB for Saints Week 1.
  11. One song

  12. Desmond Bishop hurt

    Looked pretty painful, but it looked like the damage fell to the lower leg rather than the knee... so that's good, right?
  13. Leonhard at 30 years old and Brooking at 36. Leonhard will add some much needed veteran experience at the safety position, and Brooking will help try to fill DJ Williams' void. From a fantasy perspective, I wouldn't expect a whole lot from Brooking - but Leonhard could be a great, cheap WW pickup a few weeks into the season.
  14. TO to Seattle (?)

    I look forward to watching T.O. play again, whether in Seattle or somewhere else.
  15. Andy Reid's son found dead at training camp

    Simply heartbreaking.
  16. My buddy has been working for the past ten years or so on his music career, and it's finally paying off for him. They were just signed to Chop Shop Records, a sub-label of Atlantic. They're finishing up a national tour with the Civil Wars, and they have their first album coming out early next year. Check out his band: Milo Greene. It's kind of a mix between Mumford and Sons and Fleet Foxes. If anything, listen to their song Thanks for The Huddle support.
  17. You can now purchase their album on iTunes. They played on Late Night with David Letterman last week. And they premiered at #1 on Billboards Heatseekers list, and #5 on their Folk list.
  18. HBO's "Newsroom"

    New HBO series written by Aaron Sorkin and staring Jeff Daniels. Just watched the pilot (premiered Sunday) and thoroughly enjoyed it. Anyone else get a chance to check it out?
  19. When to draft a QB?

    This. Here's how I look at it - there are 32 starting QBs each week, and 12 teams in your league. That's 2.6 QBs a team. Of the 32 starting RBs, how many aren't stuck in RBBC? Of the 64 starting WRs how many will get 5-10 targets a game? I'd much rather take RBs and WRs that sit at the top of the pack and leave them slotted in my lineup, and play one of my three QBs based on their matchup each week. IMO I think projecting QB production is much easier than projecting the production of a RBBC tailback or WR2. Just my two cents.
  20. Cheap spamshirts

    I'll buy a new "authentic" jersey every season or so. I just scour Ebay, usually searching "[team/player] authentic [numeric jersey size]." As long as you read the reviews on the seller, they tend to turn out very nicely. I don't think I've ever paid more than $75 for something that is new with tags and claims to be the real thing. Now, you also need to know that what you're getting probably isn't the real thing and be ok with it. But I'm not going to go out and drop a ton of coin on something that's going to have beer spilled on it by some guy who isn't watching where he's going at the Coliseum come game day.
  21. Fantastic feature piece by Michael J. Mooney on the current state of T.O.
  22. The Truth About Defensive Backs
  23. I like the scoring for DBs, but I still don't think it puts Haden or Pollard in with that group.
  24. Do you consider the playoff schedule?

    While I might glance at the playoff schedule with my earlier draft picks, I don't give it much weight. Far too much can happen in 13 weeks - for both individual players, and teams as a whole. From a dynasty standpoint, which is all of my leagues but two, I will rarely if ever trade my starters away based on their playoff schedule that season.
