Fantasy Football with us each week is pretty fun. We play in a few leagues (separately and together). Additionally, we run the He Said She Said Fantasy Football League. In terms of harmless competition, some weeks are better than others. If you play Fantasy Football with someone in which you are romantically involved, needless to say every week brings something…let’s call it “interesting”. Here are 10 items that spark arguments and spirited debate between us:
I ask him for start or sit advice regarding one player, and he takes credit for my whole line up.
I better not lose to her in any matchup or I will NEVER hear the end of it. Continue reading
The Indianapolis Colts have gone on record saying Andrew Luck is not a guaranteed Number 1 overall draft pick. Let me go on record saying: That’s fine with me! I’d love RGIII to be a Colt. Here are 5 reasons why:
1. The Colts have a winning tradition and have built a very strong franchise, and even though Robert Irsay acted like a CLASS A jerk for the way he treated Peyton Manning, he does not want to lose. Especially after last year’s dreadful season when they finished with a 2-14 record. Mainly, he wants to show the world that he is smarter than everyone, and can be successful without Manning. I’m not taking anything away from Andrew Luck, but RGIII will bring excitement back to that organization. He will win back the fans that they lost last season and lost during the office season with the Peyton drama. RGIII gives the Colts the best chance of winning now.
2. The NFL is changing. With the success of players like Michael Vick, Cam Newton, and even Tim Tebow, teams are looking for the extra dimension of a quarterback that can take off and run. I’m not implying that the pure pocket passer will become obsolete, but most teams are now looking for a QB that can air it out with accuracy and run for a 40 yard gain. RGIII can give you that.

Mark Sanchez: make your next move your best move. I really feel for Mark. Tim Tebow coming to NY is the worst thing that could have possibly happened for Mark. I believe the Jets front office has not really been up front with us (or Mark Sanchez for that matter). All this talk about how they have confidence in Mark Sanchez..HUMPH! The Jets had one of the most tumultuous locker rooms in all of the NFL last season and to bring in additional drama is confusing to me. I know, I know-they wanna bring Tim in for Wild Cat packages…but I don’t buy that. A QB package player is still a threat to the starting QB. Ask Donovan McNabb! He thought it was all rainbows and good times when Mike Vick was acquired from the Eagles. “Oh, he’ll be an option for certain packages” We all know how that story ended. Skip Bayless had a funny quote today: “Mark Sanchez is a mistake maker, Tim Tebow is a play maker”. I’m just saying, for the sanity of JETS fans everywhere, I sincerely hope Mark has his best season.

As you know, Free Agency kicks off today! While there are a lot of guys who will be sporting a new uniform this fall, these four guys seem to be this season’s most notable:
Peyton Manning: Of course this season’s most popular free agent still grabs most of the headlines. After the rumor of over 15 teams interested, it seems like now it’s down to Miami, Tennessee, Arizona, and Denver. The funniest part of the Manning coverage is how NFL insiders are all quick to say “Another team may sneak in and sign Peyton Manning.” That’s because people don’t want to be wrong like last year when the Eagles signed Nnamdi Asomugha out of no where! When it comes to Peyton Manning, I’m a fan of the comeback . I hope Manning returns better than expected (think Farve’s first year in Minnesota). Nothing would be sadder than to see Manning fail this season. Miami is where I would like to see him land. We can get the hype (and you know they will hype it!) of watching Manning vs Brady twice per year.
Mario Williams: If it weren’t for the Peyton Manning spotlight, the hottest Free Agent this year would be former #1 draft pick Mario Williams. I’ve heard it all regarding teams who want this guy: Tennessee, Miami, Seattle, New Orleans and Chicago to name a few. I know all of those teams can use him. I also know that most teams can’t afford both Manning AND Williams. While the Bears really need another receiver, Williams would be great in the Chi. I’m sure Bears fans would agree! Continue reading
With the final day of the Combine in the books, I want to take the time to interject some of my observations about the “sexy” skill players: QBs, RBs, WRs, an CBs specifically. But before I dig in, I have to say that I always enjoy the Combine. It’s one of my favorite times of the NFL off season. It’s the prelude to the upcoming season. Who can’t get excited about that?
I know that everybody is talking about RGIII and Andrew Luck, and they are who we thought they were. But first, is Indy better off without Peyton and putting their future in the hands of Luck. And is RGIII worth the number of draft picks that its going to take to get that second pick from St. Louis. The last I heard was its going to take 2 number 1s, 2 number 2s and a number 3 to get that pick from the Rams. Jeff Fisher, take that deal. I guarantee you will win a Super Bowl before the team that gives up all of the picks for Griffin. There’s not a lot to say about any other QBs at the Combine mainly because none of them didn’t particularly impress. In fact the only other probable 1st round QB, Ryan Tannehill from Texas A&M, wasn’t even at the Combine. However, there were a few bright spots from Houston’s Case Keenum, Kellen Moore from Boise St., and Jacory Harris from the U. But they won’t be drafted higher than the 3rd round. Continue reading
