I lost $20 on that same prediction last year in week 3 or so (unfortunately our wager did not have injury waiver included) but I don't think I would make it again this year - Manning and the Colts will probably have to pass more this year with Rhodes/Addai at RB than with Edge... They do seem to have another juicy schedule this year though, so he might end up resting by the 3rd quarter a lot...


No injury waiver and you bet AGAINST Peyton Manning? Man you are crazy.

At the time I was ahead by a decent percentage, and the Rams were in pass-happy mode while the Colts had already started to show their new-look defense-first game... But, yeah, the injury waiver should have been in there... Oh well, $20...

Got Bulger in the 7th and TGreen in the 13th to back him up. Even though they say they will run more, their D is suspect and will be playing catch up by throwing a bunch. Bulger is underrated this season. Big time.

The only thing I worry about with Bulger is his health. If he stays healthy he has the talent and the weapons. Just make sure you get a servicable backup.

Bulger's injury forced me to trade for a new QB, which happened to be Favre, and that killed me in the playoffs. So I have hard feelings toward Bulger right now.


Also Martz is gone this year, and they will probably run a bit more, I dont think he will be a top 5 QB like I projected him to be last year. Bulger is still in the top 10 though.

Gerrard wasn't available on the waivers?

I believe the drop in Bulger's stock is a combo of the injury last year, the departure of Martz and the predicted high # of carries by S-Jax this year...but I still think if Bulger stays healthy, he will produce nicely this season.

I always draft QB's late, then I follow up with my backup quickly. Took Bulger in the 7th and was happy but then thought about the injury risk and got nervous. While thinking about this, I decided to swing for the fences and took Kitna. Well, at least I can still get Leftwish off the WW.

Bottom line, SB's don't come without taking chances. Bulger is only an injury risk, not a production risk. And, he's much less of an injury risk than ever with Mad Mike (never protect your QB) gone.

So, yeah, I played both sides. A Mad Mike Qb very late and a more dependable one earlier. But, with knowledge of what would be there on the WW (Leftwich).

Lesson, always keep track of how many player each owner takes and it allow you to take risks as you will know what will be on the WW.
CheeseWhiz is a great substitute for plazma.
