  1. Last year's schedule for the Vikings was, in my opinion, one of the toughest I can remember, in terms of who they played outside of the division. NO, SEA, PHI, NE, and LAR (and 4 of those 5 were on the road). This year's is MAYBE slightly easier (on paper, of course), but they still have road games against LAC, SEA (again), DAL, and KC. It's going to be critical that they take care of business at home early in the season, considering all of their divisional road games take place in the first 7 weeks. On the flipside, if they're still in the hunt, playing GB, DET, and CHI at home, all in the last month of the season, could be huge. Of course, I say all of that keeping in mind that this is the Vikings I'm talking about. They'll probably go out and lose to OAK by four touchdowns at home, then win in KC,.or something to that effect.
  2. Interested in trading Brown while you can still get something for him?

  4. Who else is 0-2?

    QB Manning, Griese RB K. Jones, Arrington, C. Brown, R. Williams, C. Benson, W. Green WR Driver, Houshmenzadeh, Wayne, B. Edwards K Stover DEF New England I was hoping that the Wayne/Manning combo might carry me the first few weeks until one of the rookie RB's or Williams became a solid option. Wasn't counting on Manning/Wayne AND my #1 back Jones giving me virtually nothing. Still not out of it, though. I am thinking of making 3-4 roster moves this week, including dropping Stover and Green and picking up Dayne, Shipp, or Blaylock and a kicker. My starting RB situation this week is brutal with Jones on a bye and Arrington and Brown seeing limited to no playing time.
  5. When do they bench Dante?

    Better question - When do they fire Tice?

  9. Bears RB's

    I agree. Unfortunately (for Benson owners), I'm not sure either team can score more than 20 points, so I can't see it being "out of reach" in either team's favor. Because of this, I think you will see Jones get the most touches, with Benson getting 10-12.
  10. You know.....

    2-2 with 1 game yet to be determined. Won in both leagues that I have Walker as my #1. Very strange, indeed. In one Walker league, I still have DJax, Coles, Bruce, and Keyshawn. In the other, however, I am looking at starting Reggie Williams, Rod Smith, and Braylon Edwards next week.
  11. LaMont Jordan Owners

    I guess I just don't think last night's performance should be any reason for Jordan owners to panick, even if he IS their #2. I have him in only one of my five leagues, a keeper league in which I could keep him this year in exchange for my 17th-round draft pick, which is an obvious no-brainer (I also have Alexander, Rudi, Moore, and Cadillac), so he's not really a risk to me. The only reason I stayed away from drafting him as a #2 in my other leagues was Oakland's fairly tough schedule this year as far as defenses they face who can stop the run well. But, last night, I think he showed some positive signs, to say the least.
  12. LaMont Jordan Owners

    The only difference between Dillon and Jordan last night was that the Raiders threw to the TE when inside the 10, instead of pounding it in with the RB like the Pats did. So, would it be safe to assume that Dillon isn't worth drafting in the first 2-3 rounds either? Really, since Dillon was facing a fairly weak defense, I would go as far as to say that Jordan may have been more impressive than Dillon, other than the two gimme TD's.
  13. it's good to be a Collins owner

    Collins has the opportunity to easily be one of the top-five fantasy QB's in the league this year.....IF he learns to spread the ball around and not force it to Moss in double or triple-coverage ten times a game. Last night, I saw him force the ball to Moss too many times when someone else (Porter, in particular) had no one within 15 yards of them. If Collins can read the defense consistently and find the open man, he should have a field day. I just don't know if he if good enough to do that week in and week out.
  14. huh - Agassi vs. Blake

    I pretty much thought, after seeing the 4th set, that Blake would fall 6-0 in the 5th. He looked like he was falling apart or had no gas left in the tank. (Although it appeared to be more a lack of emotion than energy, especially since it wasn't exactly a long 5-set match time-wise). When I saw that Agassi won the 5th in a tie-break, I was not only surprised Blake made it that close, I was even more irritated that I hadn't been able to watch the end. Talk about a strange match....Agassi looked terrible for two sets, then Blake does, then they both end with a 5th-set barn-burner. Like I said, I didn't think Blake was going to make it that interesting, which was my only consolation for missing it until I saw the final "score" and highlights on the news.
