TE Steve Heiden, last seen yodeling in the Swiss Alps


Raiders: Best play I saw all weekend: WR Randy Moss in his old Vikings purple tossing a lateral to the Burger King guy. ... It's distressing to see WR Ronald Curry tear his Achilles again, meaning he'll miss another full season of airborne Raider fun. It's hard to say if Curry will ever be the same player, but this harkens back to his days as a hoopster Tar Heel, when he was the object of Dick Vitale's on-air screams and seemed to have as much upside as Allen Iverson. Supposed to be a good kid, too. It's a shame. ... In QB Kerry Collins, Moss has found his football soul mate. Collins has a tiny head but one heck of a big arm, and it doesn't take much thinking to hoist balls Moss's way. Dude was double-covered on every single play last week, and it didn't matter: 127 yards, a 64-yard score, and another TD called back because of a bogus offensive pass interference call. If Moss can keep up this pace (and can anyone come up with a ton of reasons -- other than jail time -- that he can't?), he'll log a 2,000-yard receiving season, with 16 TDs. Okay, maybe I'm not buying the 2,000 yards. But I'm buying the 16 TDs. ... Collins is the living, breathing example of a guy you absolutely do not want starting for your real NFL team, but who is fantasy gold. His line Sunday night? 21-of-35, 263 yards and a TD. He actually hasn't thrown a pick yet this season, though his completion percentage is barely above 50 percent. But who cares? Keep flinging it Randy's way, my man. It'll be a hilariously fun game this weekend in Philly as Moss and Terrell Owens try to outdo one another. The Eagles will probably win big, but expect an aerial show that puts the Blue Angels to shame. ... Don't blame RB LaMont Jordan if his rushing stats aren't living up to your expectations. I mean, if you expected the Raiders to have a lot of leads this year, you are truly drinking the Al Davis Kool-Aid. However, the good news is that Norv Turner seems invested in keeping Jordan on the field even when Oakland is losing, so LaMont's got a team-high 11 receptions, making him even more valuable in PPR leagues. In any kind of non-shallow league you have to keep playing him, even in Philly this week. ... Forgotten in the Moss theatrics and Curry's problems is WR Jerry Porter, who hasn't gotten hurt. Much. Yet. With Curry out, Porter could really be getting his chance to shine. I'd sit him this week, though.


That raiders write up is hysterical!!


Isn't the fact that Kerry Collins hasn't thrown an INT in two weeks like the 15th sign of the Apocalypse?

I never got the chance to have Randy on my team until this season...Oh...my...God. Why doesn't Collins just chuck the ball 70 yards in his direction say, 15 Times a Game? It doesn't seem to matter if he's covered or not. (and I actually posted a thread here today inquiring about the possibility of benching him. I'm a Moron.) I'm sorry Randy.

Kerry Collins-0 INTs
Daunte Culpepper-8INTs

Coincidence?
