Is the Superbowl loser curse as real as Madden now???

This curse talk has to be some of the dumbest stuff discussed in fantasy football! If we looked into everything like we do with the madden curse and super bowl curse, everyone would have some sort of curse against them. It is ridiculous to even talk about it!

its gonna be hard.You have three divisions where the wild card can come from. The West might only get one playoff team. East still could too. In my opinion, the rams maybe when the division, the Giants probably win the division in the East, Carolina in the south. (I don't want to quibble with this, I know it can change)

So you have the eagles, falcons, saints, seahwaks all vying for two spots, and I guess you could see a resurgent cowboys team possibly.

I don't think its a gurantee at all that they make it back to the playoffs.

I'm certainly not going to say that Seneca Wallace is going to be the best QB in the league, but I can say with certainty that he'll be better next week than he was after Hasselbeck's injury.

He's going to get first team reps and certainly understand the gameplan better this week knowing the weight is being put on his shoulders. Besides, this is where he'll be able to show whether or not he can be a quarterback in the NFL.

A lot will be shown next Sunday when he takes the reins. I suspect a subpar week for a fantasy QB but a decent showing in real life. He's a very athletic guy.

So was Akili Smith.

I think the Seahawks lose this week. And lose every game they are with out Hass and Alexander.
So they weren't the best...and may have ended the worst. SO WHAT!

Well, I didn't say they were going to win this week. :-o

Just for the record, Akili Smith's problem was largely due to three things: (1) his contract dispute before his first year, (2) he was on a very lousy Bengals team, and (3) he didn't ever grasp the playbook and they didn't dumb it down enough for him. On top of that, if you recall, he had an unmeasurable amount of pressure put on him because the Bengals turned down the Saints' offer of about 40 billion draft picks (because they wanted Ricky Williams). They opted to just take Akili Smith instead.

But I do understand what you mean. Athleticism doesn't equate to good anything. It's really all about the decision-making on the field. I think Wallace might be ok there too, but I can't say that for sure.

i heard recently that smith got a 37 or a 39 on his wonderlic. If that guy needs things "dumbed down," what hope do other qb's have?

Kevin Curtis Scored like a 48 on the wonderlic....I believe its the highest or top 3 highest score ever.

Have you guys ever seen a wonderlic test? Honesty, most people would score in the mid 30s pretty easily.

Plus, as with all tests, the only thing it proves is that you can take a test well. Rarely in multiple choice tests do you get the chance to actually show you know the material. Just that you can easily eliminate a couple choices and then make an educated guess.

mama jama.

I do find it weird though that for the most part, qbs seem to get the least second chances to start than some other players, despite having the hardest mental go of it.

Did smith ever get another try? I know that qbs do, but it seems so variable on coach, system, personnel, that high draft picks should get another chance or two.
