  1. 10 reason why I detest fantasy football

    Well said! It is very apparent that many sports journalists carry biases towards specific teams and even players. Similarly, it is difficult for serious homers of a particular team to justify rooting for players on other teams (vis a vis fantasy sports). I have several friends who are supposedly big football fans, but are not interested in playing fantasy football because it would mean being knowledgeable and pulling for players on (gasp) other teams...
  2. 10 reason why I detest fantasy football

    I guess his editor tired of him writing about Tom Brady….
  3. 10 reason why I detest fantasy football

    I guess if it doesn’t specifically speak to how great Bill Belichick is, or how great of a dynasty the Patriots are becoming, Banks doesn’t like it. What a homerish moron….
  4. When you think of Marino

    My guess is most of the posters on this string never saw Marino play in his prime... they probably saw him in the last 3 or 4 years of his career. Anyone who watched the NFL in the mid to late 80's, however, can attest to the fact that the NFL has never seen a QB before or since with the pure throwing skills of Marino. Elway, Favre, Manning, Montana, etc... they are all great in their own way, but none could throw with Dan. Any talk about what a surly guy he was on the field may be true - he wanted to win and spoke his mind to his team mates. He has always been a class guy off the field though... humble, great family man, and devotes a great deal of his time and energy helping others. I live in Denver, and the only thing I ever hear about Elway helping is is car dealerships.
  5. Bandwagon

    No doubt – its Pasty fans in my book. Many of them are under the impression the NFL started in 2001.
  6. Ricky's back!

    I think Brown should be slowly entered into the mix. He is a rookie who never carried a full load in college. Why throw him right in and expect miracles? Let him learn, get used to the system, and the pace of the league. In a year or two he will be the man down there… As far as Ricky, who knows what his real motivations were for leaving – and now returning. I do know this. The guy is a natural athlete, and RB is the one position in the NFL where you either have it or you don’t. You can’t learn how to be a good RB. Saban knows this, and if Williams does report, keeps clean, and actually plays, he will be a force.
  7. Which Player, Which Game

    The question was which "GAME", that Super Bowl hardly qualifies as a game... More like a scrimmage. I am still not convinced the Broncos defense ever came out of the locker room after the half-time break.
  8. Dolphins

    Its a possibility.... he is reunited with his old OC from Minnesota. I don't think Feeley got a fair shot last season, but with Saban now in charge, he is probably going to open it up to competition and let the best man win. My best guess: (1) the Phins OL gels and makes significant progress from last year's debacle. (2) Frerotte wins the starting job during training camp, and holds on to it as long as he stays healthy. (3) Brown starts at RB, but is spelled by Ricky come October. Both end up in the 700-800 yard area.
  9. Whose career would you rather have?

    Marino is a loser..... what a stupid statement. The QB who rewrote the record book. That's like calling Ted Williams a loser. His team never won a World Series but he is universally considered as the greatest hitter to ever play.
  10. Whose career would you rather have?

    This is a good question. Most would vote for Troy as he was the QB on a team which won 3 rings. Dan's team won nada. However, in 25 years who do you think is going to be remembered more??
  11. The worst QB to ever win a Super Bowl...

    Tony Eason..... Gawd he was awful. Come to think of it, I wonder how in blazes that New England team even made the playoffs, never mind go to the Super Bowl. Talk about a lucky string.
  12. Actually, the original post said... 'This guy will go down as the greatest player of all time....Could there possibly be anyone better than the man named "Brady"' It doesn't even ask the question is Brady the best QB now or ever... the poster blantanly says he is the greatest player ever. I think we all know the answer to that.... Personally, I don't think Brady even makes the top 10 QBs ever. As far as greatest player. he doesn't even warrant mentioning.
  13. That this topic was even brought up speaks volumes on the dismal state of the QB position in today's NFL.
  14. I have been running a 10 team league for 5 seasons. In the past we have always run a “Start-over” league, with a live serpentine draft (random picking order). Since our membership has been stable, I am considering instituting a bit of a dynasty flavor to our league this season. Without totaling upsetting the apple cart, I thought of allowing each owner the option of keeping one player from their final 2004 roster – but if they do, they forfeit their 1st round pick in this year’s draft. Of course, they would have to make this decision prior to me picking the draft order. Does anyone see any problems or issues with doing this? Is there a better way of making such a modification? Thanks!
  15. This is more like the fans we know and hate...

    Darn... I thought this was a post about Patriot fans.
