Fantasy Football Report: Week 9

I did it! I finally dropped Eddie Royal in both of my leagues. I am free of his crap! I feel like I’ve been in an abusive relationship for nine weeks and now have found the courage to rid myself of the pain. Oh god, just watch him take off now. Headlines Larry Johnson Released […]

Week 9 Sleepers

I don’t know why, but for some reason, I still have a Cleveland Browns player on my fantasy team. Granted, I never start him unless I need a bye week fill-in, but still, I am employing the services of wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi. In week 4, he had a breakout game with eight catches for […]

Week 5 Sleepers

Apologies to anybody who picked up Darren McFadden solely based on my advice. All he did was carry the ball six time for -3 yards. Ouch! Sorry, but he was facing Houston. I thought he’d at least manage a decent 70 yds or something. This just goes to prove that nobody on Oakland should be […]

High Five/Low Five – Week 4

Let’s put it to you in terms you guys can understand. I’ve been watching a lot of NESN lately. Between the end of the Sox season and the beginning of the Bruins’ year, NESN has been my best friend the last few weeks. So related to that, I’ve drawn comparisons from my weekly fantasy picks […]

Top Ten Shakeups for the 2009 NFL Season

The 2009 NFL Season starts Thursday, and everyone is excited about it. Which teams will be the heavyweights this year? Which players will be the standouts? Will all the teams with quarterback problems solve them? After both #1 seeds from the 2007 season failed to even make the playoffs in the 2008 season, anything can […]

I Called It: Vikings Beat Chiefs

As I predicted, the Vikings defeated the Chiefs in a close game, 17-13. In an odd twist of fate, though probably not too surprising because of Favre’s extensive time off, Matt Cassel showed more potential in more playing time. Both quarterbacks started, though Favre only played in two series, going 1/4 of passes for a […]

Favre Versus Cassel: The Rubber Match

After waffling more than an IHOP chef, Brett Favre is back in action. He picked a great time to do it, too. On Friday at 8:00, Favre’s Vikings will face Matt Cassel’s Chiefs in Minnesota. Last season, Favre’s Jets and Cassel’s Patriots split the season series one game each, with the Pats winning in Week […]

New Hopes For New England

It’s almost time to start another season, and the Patriots hope to put last season’s disappointment behind them. Training camp is well underway, and the first preseason game is right on the horizon – Thursday August 13th in Philadelphia. Media reports have Bill Belichick upping the ante with an even more strenuous training camp than […]

2009 Training Camp Preview: Quarterbacks

Training camp is now in full swing in Foxboro so it’s time to take a look at the players who will make up the 2009 New England Patriots. We’ll start off with the position which most fans feel is the easiest to diagnose yet deep down inside in places you don’t talk about at parties […]

Patriots Sign Patrick Chung; Place Five on PUP List

With rookies reporting to training camp yesterday there was little doubt that second round pick Patrick Chung – though unsigned at the time – would show up to camp and not hold out. Instead of making their rabid fanbase sweat a little, the Patriots and Chung ended all inkling of contractual unrest by agreeing to […]

Five Burning Questions: Part I

As training camp kicks off at Gillette Stadium in roughly two weeks, we’ll take a look at five questions that will be on the minds of many. Part I: Tom Brady | Part II: The Secondary | Part III | Part IV | Part V 1. The health of Tom Brady Early indications make it […]

Broncos v. Chiefs, Who Would Win?

The Denver Broncos and Kansas Chiefs recently acquired former Patriots personnel to help revive both AFC West teams. The Broncos picked up Josh McDaniels as head coach, and players Jabar Gaffney and LaMont Jordan. The Chiefs picked up Matt Cassel and Mike Vrabel, as well as Scott Pioli as the new general manager. Many are […]

Matt Cassel: The New Chief Player in Kansas City

Former Patriots backup and 2008 starting quarterback Matt Cassel has signed a six-year contract with the Kansas City Chiefs. He will be paid $63 million over the six years, with $28 million guaranteed. This lucrative agreement is certainly due to Cassel’s breakout 2008 season and the franchise tag the Patriots placed on him before sending […]

Fantasy Football Focus: The Starting 11 – Faces in New Places

Let me be the first to welcome you to the boring doldrums of the sports calendar. Hoops are on hiatus, pucks are on ice, and even baseball’s now at their mid-summer snooze. Unless you’re a raging WNBA fan, there’s just very little action to feast your eyes on these days. (And hey, all you WNBA […]

Matt Cassel Trade: Controversial Dealings?

I know it’s logical given the history of Bill Belichick and Scott Pioli to assume that there was shenanigans going on the big trade between the Chiefs and Patriots, with Matt Cassel and Mike Vrabel going to the Chiefs for the 34th pick in the draft. It seems laughable that a franchise QB and a […]
