Nice work to the fellas–way to claim that #1 spot! Before we reveal the results for our league this week. Here are a few notes on NFL players…
Fred Jackson might not have a job when he returns.
The Matt Ryan Fantasy Bandwagon has arrived!
Larry Fitzgerald is going to ask for a trade.
Danny Amendola tho?
Don’t give up on Peyton or Brees just yet.
With the exception of DEF/ST, the Bears vs. Packers game was a fantasy nightmare.
Who is Andre Brown and should Ahmad Bradshaw and David Wilson be worried?
Alfred Morris (your best fantasy pick up from last week) is still doing it.
Get to know Nick Foles, because Michael Vick will not last much longer.
I saw the USC Reggie Bush Sunday.
The fellas have taken over the #1 spot this week!
This weeks’ episode of Hard Knocks picks up after the Chad Johnson fiasco. LB Karlos Dansby told the media of his disappointment in the organization not standing behind Chad. The rest of the team apparently had mixed feelings, but I found it very interesting to see that team leaders, which consisted of Dansby, Reggie Bush, and Jake Long, meeting with Coach Philbin, about starting a “peer counseling” group to keep players on the straight and narrow.
Chad’s absence brings a bigger problem: Who do the Dolphins have to fill the spot at receiver? Last night, we saw a bevy WRs that weren’t particularly impressive. Philbin said that his gut told him that Chad wouldn’t fit on the team. What is his gut saying now? Continue reading
The Miami Dolphins have a rich tradition of undefeated seasons, Super Bowl wins and appearances (how can we forget the Wildcat). Sadly, the most recent history has been losing season after losing season. I don’t expect anything different this upcoming season. The Dolphins have no playmakers, save Reggie Bush, since they traded away the best player they have had in recent history, Brandon Marshall. They dumped Tony Sparano as their head coach, hiring rookie coach Joe Philbin. They also missed out on the services of Peyton Manning, and placed their future in the hand of rookie WR turned QB, Ryan Tannehill. Then just yesterday, it was announced that HBO will profile the team on Hard Knocks this year. The whole nation will be able to see exactly what all of this looks like for the Dolphins. Who will emerge as the darling of South Beach on HBO: the rookie Head Coach, who recently loss his son to a tragedy, the rookie newlywed QB, or will it be a veteran like Bush? Exciting times in Miami even if the football is bad.
Fantasy Football Studs: Well Reggie Bush had a pretty good year for his first year as a Dolphin. He started off kinda slow but ended the year with 1086 rushing yards and 7 combined TDs, the most of anyone on the current roster (bye-bye Brandon Marshall). Experience has taught me that Reggie Bush himself may be a stud, but he’s no fantasy football stud. Those are hard to come by on the Miami Dolphins Continue reading
The winner of the 2011 Heisman Trophy will be presented tonight. It’s gearing up to be a pretty close race. This prestigious honor is given to college football’s best player. For one lucky young man, it could be the springboard to NFL superstardom. But for some, superstardom is not easy to come by. We take a look at the most recent, relevant Heisman trophy winners. Does college football’s top honor translate to NFL stud? Continue reading
Seasons Greetings everyone! We hope you each had a great Thanksgiving Day with your family and friends. Thanksgiving with our family was quite awesome! We planned with our families to arrive no later than noon to get the festivities started. While we didn’t have a typical tailgate, we did have a Packers/Lions pre-game set up.
I actually thought the Lions had a huge chance to win the game, and it started out pretty even. However, the Lions loss their momentum, and their cool, and ultimately the game. At least it was a good game for at least one half.
At halftime we had our version of a Turkey Bowl at the Morris house. This was a competitive matchup between me and J’s father against J’s brother in law and her two young nephews, aged 4 and 6. These little “ankle biters” were juking, and zig zagging, and head faking, and talking trash. It was truly a sight to see. The oldest one, AJ, had his own little touchdown dance. It was a lot of fun! I’m already looking forward to next year’s rematch.
Ladies, I almost had a picture of a broom up here…almost. Ballers Unorthodoks is coming back like fashion trends. He handed us our only loss (and barely)! Next, the game between your commish (DNasty) and DC turned out to be a tie with the last play of the Ravens vs Steelers game. Our record against the men this week is 3-1-1…Every game really did come down to the wire! You ladies are real bad-MICHAEL JACKSON!
