I currently have Brees ahead of Palmer
To be honest, and not to beat a dead horse, I don't get the groundswell of hype for Palmer. That's not to denigrate Palmer, he is obviously elite and up-and-coming. But it's not like his body of work is above reproach, and I really don't get how is summarily number three all of a sudden. (This is just how it seems to me). I've seen people real and fantasy put him above McNabb (injuries not withstanding). I just don't see it, the body of work isn't there relative to some other people. Playoffs and such aren't relevant in this forum, but McNabb's best season is better than Palmer's best, same with Brees. And both have been doing it longer, so I'm more inclined to trust them. Of course, since Donovan gets hurt every year anymore I'd take Palmer above him, but seriously, its alsonot a stretch for someone to bet this is the year donovan stays healthy and keeps it going (this has been three seasons in a row now where he has been putting up monster stats for the first half, 2004 of course the whole year), and with another year in the system, Brees could maybe do 85 percent or more of what he did last year.
I don't find it laughable in the least, although I disagree with SI's rankings. They have the worst fantasy rankings (football and baseball) of any major outlet in my opinion.
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.
