  1. Last week I picked up both Atlanta's defense and Miami's defense for the playoffs ... started Miami instead of Atlanta and lost
  2. Melvin Gordon Carted off

  3. Commish for 20 years. Finally Done.

    My 20 year league fell apart this year as well. It began to die last year when we had to convert from a 10 team league to a 12 team league. This year it finally took it's last breathe as we couldn't fill out even 10 teams and nobody tried to find replacement owners.
  4. Kaepernick benched

    Another way to say it ... ESPN has created an audience that only wants to consume the game highlights. The NFL RedZone is catering to that new mentality.
  5. Kaepernick benched

    LOL ... the RedZone exists so you can "Catch every touchdown from every game Sunday afternoons with NFL RedZone from NFL Network". Quote taken directly from their website. Even if they show other plays I still maintain the RedZone is for people who don't have the attention span to watch a football game. People that watch the RedZone want to see highlights and likely are only concerned about which players scored how many fantasy points. I used to play that game. Now when I turn on a football game I ignore fantasy football and stat lines and watch the game.
  6. Kaepernick benched

    I would argue if your NFL experience is encompassed by watching the redzone channel that you are not watching NFL games, in no way or fashion do the scoring plays define everything that happens in the game. IMO the redzone is for people who do not have the attention span to actually watch a game.
  7. Sam being Sam.... when will teams / people learn?

    I agree with a lot of this. Having said all that when the trade was made I didn't think that Bradford was going to the the magic bullet to get Minnesota to the playoffs, and if Bradford can't get you to the playoffs then the price was too high.
  8. My take on Dak vs. Romo

    You missed the point. It wasn't about their skill sets. It was about convincing yourself that a fragile QB has something left in the tank and will not break down if you hire him.
  9. My take on Dak vs. Romo

    Sounds like the Cleveland front office talking about their decision to hire RGIII
  10. My take on Dak vs. Romo

    I'm just not convinced there is another team looking for a QB with glass collar bones and a bad back.
  11. My take on Dak vs. Romo

    If we are playing this game ... can we bring a healthy Aikman back?
  12. My take on Dak vs. Romo

    I disagree that Tony would be doing the same thing. I believe the team plays differently with Dak than they do with Romo.
  13. My take on Dak vs. Romo

    Some of us saw it sooner than others ... just sayin'
  14. Trade Advice

    Trade for Hillary, she is available ..
  15. My take on Dak vs. Romo

    He won't get the kind of money he wants ... he is at the end of his football career and fragile to boot
  16. My take on Dak vs. Romo

    You mean like all those other great performances of Romo's "down the stretch" in Decembers past?
  17. My take on Dak vs. Romo

    Nobody is crowning Dak. I have yet to hear a single Romo supporter tell me what advantage Dallas gains by benching Dak for Romo. Dak is already leading the team to wins. I keep hearing about the ability to 'open up the playbook' ... why exactly do we need to do that if we are winning games? I keep hearing about the experience Romo brings to the table ... are you really telling me that Romo's record in December and his record in the post season is the reason to bench Dak for Romo? Really? Are you really trying to tell me that Romo doesn't play scared now because he is afraid to take another debilitating hit? Are you really telling me that offense under Dak isn't a bit more dynamic because the O-Line isn't always in max-protect making sure that their fragile QB doesn't take another hit?
  18. My take on Dak vs. Romo

    You have to get past your hard on for Romo. Romo hasn't played in a regular season NFL game in a year. You keep touting the experience Romo has ... remind me again, with Romo as the QB how many playoff wins, conference wins, super bowl wins do the Cowboys have? The team plays differently with Romo under center than they do with Dak under center. What exactly is the advantage to benching Dak for Romo? Do wins count more if Romo is the QB? Do we get 3 extra points going into the game if Romo is the QB?
  19. Injuries are killing me ... Tevin Colemen ...OUT Matt Jones ... OUT Doug Martin ... OUT
  20. I have to start Wendell Smallwood this week ... who is with me?

    Yeah ... those shows are ludicrous, not worth watching. All the free agent recommendations are NOT free agents in any of my leagues and at least half the time the player in question was DRAFTED.
  21. I have to start Wendell Smallwood this week ... who is with me?

    I just thought I had it bad last week .. I had to pick up Damien Williams to pair with Smallwood this week ... OMG 2 RBs are OUT 3 RBs are a BYE
  22. MVP TALK

    I'm sorry but the faulty logic is "yeah he is the MVP, but we don't need him to win".
  23. MVP TALK

    The team wins with you, the teams wins without you ... that is a clear argument that you aren't the most valuable player on that team.
  24. MVP TALK

    I disagree ... how can Tom Brady be the MVP when his team was able to win 3 out of the 4 games without him?
  25. MVP TALK

    I'm not putting him in the HoF. He is winning now, why would you bench him for a QB who has proven to be fragile and has not started in an NFL regular season game in almost a year. It just seems to be me that people have fallen in love with the pretty stats that Romo has accumulated ... in games that all occurred in a period of time that ended something like 11 months ago. And this crap about Romo the veteran leading the way to playoff wins? Remind me again how many years Romo played and how many playoff wins he has?
