I told myself this year that I would stock up on receivers early and take my chances on backs later, as I had a low pick and wasn't crazy about the other options around that spot. So Parker falls to me in the 6th, and I nab Turner in the 7th, praying that they ive me decent numbers while Moss, Ocho, Holt, Gates and Smith give me steady production. So what happens in week 1? Turner runs wild on the Lions and Parker has more tds in his first game than he did all last season, while Chad and Holt give me nothing and Moss is looking at Matt Cassell as his starting qb. Fantasy football is crazy sometimes, but I love it all the same. :-b

They still could be, but when the offensive line decides to block, the Steelers are as good as any team in the league. IMO this wasn't a reflection on Houston as much as it was on Pittsburgh.
