  1. They're BACK

    before the season started I thought betweeen JJ Arrington, Mewelde Moore, Suggs, and M.Bennet that i would have at least one capable BYE week cover for this Sunday when Jamal Lewis is out... looks like I was wrong...
  2. Cardinals interested in trade for Vikings' Bennett

    That's true, but their starting center didn't play in game 1 vs a solid Giant run defense... week 2 was better... again, 'wait and see' mode...
  3. Cardinals interested in trade for Vikings' Bennett

    Oh I think Mewelde's value goes WAY up if Bennet is gone. Moe may still goal line vulture, but MM would suddenly get upwards of 20 carries a game and he can do a lot of damage with that. IF Bennet was given the clear #1 in Ari he could have a value bump as well... we'll just have to wait and see...
  4. Cardinals interested in trade for Vikings' Bennett

    Yeah... but a lot of assumptions still... Bennet could wind up sharing in Ari too...with Shipp AND JJ around... but the rook probably falls to the bench if this happened.
  5. Cardinals interested in trade for Vikings' Bennett

    PLEASE let this happen... that would help me quite a bit ... both Bennet and Mewelde probably get bumps if they both become starters for respective teams...
  6. Possibly the biggest point swing ever?

    I had a similar swing with this lineup qb- bulger rb- jamal rb- dillon wr- s.smith wr- r.moss wr- tj housh flex- leftwhich flex- c.chambers k- vandy d- panthers Week 1 I was a point or two shy of the week high around 120, week 2 with the same lineup I was in the 50's... that's how it goes sometimes...
  7. Cmart

    It's probably been reported already but WFAN in NYC is reporting that Cmart's MRI came back negative, no major issues...
  8. Saints/Giants game

    :doah:
  9. Saints/Giants game

    Like I said, there's no speaking to any such 'related' incidents... There's drunk A-holes in EVERY crowd of 80k people... I'm just saying, generalizations about 'these fans are nasty' are pretty much bunk... And for every such 'incident' you can probably point to three people holding "We Love The Saints" signs... so you say that means nothing, then I can reply your 'story' about beer means nothing... fans are fans. Some towns are a different than others, some are crazier... in general, Giants fans are wealthy and older, it's IMPOSSIBLE to get Giants tix around here... the same rich people own em... Giants crowds tend to be a lot less rowdy than other NY events...
  10. Saints/Giants game

    and my mother's brother's uncle once told me a story about a Philly fan being mean to him at a game in their stadium... whatever... As noted, this was a GIANTS home game, which totally screw New Orleans, and the powers that be set it up that way... yup, the Saints got reemed, it wasn't fair, and it's not fair to the rest of the NFC East that the NFL let the Gmen have 9 home games, but that's what happened... You can try and construe the NY fans as nasty all you want, but I saw all the "We Love New Orleans" signs in the stands all night long. Does that mean anything really? No... but to make the NY fans out as any nastier than fans anywhere else who root for their home team is just silly imo.
  11. Saints/Giants game

    I'm a Giants fan and I can admit that the Saints got screwed. This wasn't fair, but a hellhouse??? c'mon now... that's a little overboard... the Saints did get a standing O last night when they came out. Everyone knows this was a home game for the Giants, to construe it otherwise is simply ridiculous. In reference to that KC game, once the game started, those fans were no more rooting for the Giants than the NY fans for N'Orlins last night...
  12. Cleveland, Miami and San Fran Fans...

    trades rarely happen in the NFL, especially in season
  13. Strahan Downgraded

    WFAN radio in NYC is reporting that the Giants have downgraded Michael Strahan today and he might not play in tonight's game. I missed the actual details of what's wrong with him... If he doesn't play, that hurts the Gmen's pash rush and run stopping....
  14. Minny Mess...

    I grabbed Mewelde in several leagues late in the draft... Long after Bennet had been taken rounds before. After coughing up 2 fumbles and getting benched, ya think Bennet is primed to lose his job? Is there any way of telling with Tice? Given the state of the Oline and the offense would you even expect much out of Mewelde if he got the rock? questions questions...
  15. Minny Mess...

    There's a poll on the front of the Minny Tribune online sports section today that asks... "The Vikings will improve when..." Currently 41% say 'when Tice is gone" but I got a kick out of the 2nd place answer, 20% 'when pigs fly'
  16. Minny Mess...

    From the Minny Tribune this morning: Bennett rushed for 9 yards on his first carry and 23 on his second, but he fumbled after gaining 4 on his third carry, ending the Vikings' first possession. Tice replaced him with Mewelde Moore for two series, and then Bennett opened a second-quarter series by fumbling on a screen pass. He did not play thereafter. "It's tough," Tice said. "He wants to do well. He's got his back against the wall. He wants to show that he should be The Guy. "He comes out running the ball hard, then we have a fumble. You try to settle him down ... and then you have another fumble. It's tough at that point, I believe, to put him back in." http://www.startribune.com/stories/510/5621835.html
  17. Lee Suggs...

    He's been practicing again... probably won't get a full load this week. Do you think he's back to full status in week 3? What take do people have on him? Is he too gimpy to be a reliable #3 rb?
  18. I am going to puke...

    Yup. I've seen it happen. A stat change can be devestating, especially when it swings a game that was decided by a small margin. It stinks man, I feel your pain.
  19. DMD likes Leftwich again this week.

    In my keeper league with a flex spot where we can start a 2nd QB I'm liking my Lefty draft pick more and more... it's only 1 game but I got him late. He posted nice yardage totals against Indy both times last year...
  20. CULPEPPER

    The OLine problems are worrisome. They need some semblance of a running game and pass protection in order to get the passing game going. It's only 1 game so we're all in 'wait and see' mode, but it's definitely a concern right now. I'd be more worried about the RB mess than Cpep's numbers from a fantasy standpoint though. If you were counting on Bennet producing, that could be a problem...
  21. FA WR Pickup

    I'd go with Engram... Reggie's probably gonna hit the occasional HR in this offense, but you'll see more 40-60yd days from him too... I think Engram will have more balls thrown his way in general.
  22. Byron Leftwich Listed as "One Week Wonder"?

    I admit, the 'one week wonder' tag made me double take as well... Yes Lefty hasn't been spectacular by any means up till now... but lots of people, including DMD, have been expecting the 'next step' from him this year. He's got some legit WR's, and a canon arm. A down the field approach on offense certainly won't hurt. He won't post Manning/Bulger numbers on a consistent basis, but he could definitely be a solid QB2, with some big weeks in the right matchups. I don't see 'one week wonder' at all myself. I see a young QB with talent, some good wideouts, and the potential for excellent numbers from time to time.
  23. Trotter Ejected

    Stupid stupid stupid... jawing at midfield turns into pushing/shoving and the Refs toss the Eagles best run-stopper out of the game. Mathis probably hurts the Falcons too, but Trotter is a much bigger loss to the Eagles imo. Stupid stupid stupid.
  24. Brandon Jacobs inquiry

    The Giants are VERY high on this kid. He'll be the short yardage/goal line back as well as getting touches to give Tiki a breather. 7-10 carries a game is probably about right, and it does look like he'll get plenty of looks inside the 5yd line if he keeps converting. Coughlin loves him. The Giants have been looking for this kind of back for YEARS now. If Tiki ever went down, he'd be a nice backup to have. We don't know how he'd look with 20 carries a game, but he's been a solid addition to the offense thus far.
  25. Steve Smith vs. Nate Burleson

    I grabbed Steve in multiple leagues this year after people let him drop out of the top 8-10 wr's in a couple of my drafts. I was thrilled to get him as my #2WR on a couple different teams. If he keeps getting the balls Muhsin got last year, I'll be smiling all season.
