  1. Eli benched

    Giants announced rookie Daniel Jones as the team's Week 3 starter. And the crowd roars. It was an obvious transition once coach Pat Shurmur left the door open for a potential change on Monday, but the good news is the organization didn't hold back any longer despite being on the books for Eli Manning's $23.5 million in 2019. Danny Dimes most recently went 29-of-34 (85.3%) for 416 yards and two scores on just 60 snaps during the preseason. He'll likely battle uphill in his first start without Sterling Shepard (concussion) and Golden Tate (suspension), but it's the correct call to insert the No. 6 overall pick immediately. It's not farfetched to think Week 2 was the last start of Eli's career, finishing with a 116-116 regular season record over 16 seasons.
  2. PI replay

    Good question. It was a score so you would think it would be a booth review. But the refs made it clear it was a challenge. Either way, if they are "look at anything missed on the play" are they checking the o-line for holding?
  3. PI replay

    The Vikings had a td taken away after replay which was the difference in the game. It didn't even involve the catch itself. After replay they called Cooks for interference stating he was blocking after 5 yds. Questionable, he;d already been jammed at the line and as a 2nd defender came at him as he was crossing the end zone, he put his hands up to protect himself and got called for blocking. Meanwhile Diggs catches the pass and crosses the line for the td. It's one thing if the refs call it a pick play during the play, but now you can challenge a play like that? Not involved in the actual play at the ball? I'm not sure that is what the new rule was meant for...
  4. Did I miss something?

    The 2nd time the play by play on gave Woods a td when it was Cooks. Guess they confused the 17 and 12.
  5. I'd wait til next week when you find out your team actually sucks. Dominant? lol. Your qbs suck. You have an injury prone rb. cook. You have a rookie Jacobs who has played one freakin game. and cohen. Who else? You need to find rbs. You do have some good wrs, trade for some rbs. quickly. before the rest of the league realizes you are desperate for rbs. You also don't have any TE's.
  6. Antonio Brown has frostbitten feet

    Well, that's not fair, what did Carr do to deserve that? Other then suck at being a QB? Wait...
  7. What round will you draft Josh Gordon?

    NFL is reinstating Patriots WR Josh Gordon, per Adam Schefter
  8. Message Board Leagues

    I'm back for league #1. I never received an email. It has my email listed, but has a 2nd person linked to the team. some Matt guy.
  9. Antonio Brown has frostbitten feet

    Clearly his old helmet did a poor job of protecting his brain.
  10. Robert Kraft busted!

    Soliciting a prostitute Gronk couldn't hook him up?
  11. Redskins acquired QB Case Keenum and a 2020 seventh-round pick from the Broncos in exchange for a 2020 sixth-round pick. For his troubles, Keenum is getting a $500,000 "restructure bonus" on top of his $7 million salary. To facilitate a trade, the Broncos have agreed to pay half of that. Keenum has agreed to waive the non-guaranteed $10.5 million he had been owed. It is probably the best Keenum and the Broncos could have hoped for. As for the Redskins, Keenum is an improvement on Colt McCoy but not much else. It's a decidedly modest Alex Smith fallback plan. Keenum predictably crash landed last season after his magical 2017 with the Vikings. It is going to be a long year in Washington.
  12. Jason Witten is back

    Jason Witten decided to end his retirement and return to the Cowboys. Witten left the team to join the Monday Night Football booth last May. "The fire inside of me to compete and play this game is just burning too strong," Witten said in a statement. "This team has a great group of rising young stars, and I want to help them make a run at a championship." Witten added this was "completely my decision," but his struggles in the booth likely played some role in his return. Even going on 37 (in May), Witten's return upgrades a nameless Cowboys tight end corps. Source:
  13. Who else is 0-2?

    0-2 in my local. Marc Bulger Shaun Alexander Julius Jones Joe Horn Michael Clayton Roy Williams Todd Heap Jason Elam Falcons Although I benched JJ for Warrick Dunn last week, which caused me to lose by .6.

  15. Fantasy Football

    Duece got just enough yards, 6 extra in fact, for me to win one league by 6/10th of a point. 62.6-62.0. I needed 6 more yards from Joe Horn, I lost by 6/10th in another league...108.8-108.2. I have a 3rd matchup where I am up by 7 pts, and sweating out him having Portis vs Witten for me.
  16. So, do you think....

    A lot of blame to go around for Sunday. INCLUDING, the " Lucky Charm". Nice work SB. Being so early in the season, I think it was the right move to keep Daunte in the game. Try and fight thru this "trouble". Find something that might work. Any positve with the offense right now would be good. Later in the year I could see more reason to plant him on the bench for a half..
  17. Moss!

    It's pretty obvious any of you numbnuts who claim Randy drew the defenders away from the other wrs so they would be open more often, didn't watch yesterdays game. The announcers yesterday showed replay after replay and droned on and on, how wide open the Vikes wrs were and Culpepper just wasn't seeing them. The Vikes O-line sucks and Culpepper is blind. That has nothing to do with Moss there or not.
  18. The "Get Pumped for Willie Parker" Thread

    You can all bite me! I'm playing against Willie in 3 leagues this week.

  20. Server issues

    weird...I've had just as many problems as any one else the last week or so. But today, both at work and at home, no problems at all. Seems faster then it's ever been.
  21. New England v Oakland

    Collins in one league, Moss in another.
  22. Vikings

    We have Brad Johnson for that play.
  23. Randy Moss injuries

    He's had a few problems with his back and his ankle since he joined the league, but never missed any games because of them. His hamstring injury last year was the first real injury he's had that caused him to miss any time.
  24. MFFL Online Draft Sucked

    Yea, that alphabetical stuff is a real pain to figure out. You can also sort players by position during the draft.
