There was this Titans game last year that convinced me that Tennessee had the worst defense in the game. :-b No but seriously though, they should be venerable this year. One game in Foxboro isn't the best measuring stick, since they have been known to drop huge points on decent Ds.

I learned in week 1 that I should target the Colston owner for a trade in the one league where I own Mike Williams (TB).

Might as well offer up Arian Foster for Adrian Peterson while I'm at it.

I learned that McGahee might annoy me more being a Rice owner than he annoyed me all the years previously when I drafted him...

Here here. 6 rushes for -1 yards- and the only TD of the game. :-P

Heck, play mix-and-match- offer Mike Williams straight up for Adrian Peterson!

The rules committee needs to reevaluate what constitutes "maintaining possession" throughout a catch.


Lots o' arguments on ESPN for Vick getting the starting job. That's what I was thinking yesterday, too. When Vick was taking off and turning the corner it was more exciting than the rest of the action I saw yesterday (had the colts game, then Philly, then boys/skins).

RE: that endzone possession thing. All a guy has to do it get up and hand the ball to the ref. And how to change the rule that wouldn't result in suddenly seeing any catch that isn't a perfect three-stepper handed to the ref being questioned. I'm oversimplying I know, but I guess I'm on the side of defending the rule, and taking the position that players ought to know better. At least it wasn't a Leon Lett type thing.



I don't know if I agree about that touchdown catch. Although I respect the Barry Sanders type guys whom hand the ball to the ref like its not big deal, I dont know how they do it. Football is an emotional game. The guy caught the winning touchdown on a hail mary play to win the game. Thats such an emotional thing, I don't think you can fault him for getting excited and standing up to celebrate.

I think that with this so much in the forefront, the importance of maintaining possession in the endzone will be stressed to players incredibly frequently. I don't think 90% of the players were fully aware of the nature of that rule and I don't blame them. Sucks for Calvin Johnson and the Lions to learn the lesson of this rule the hardest of ways. Poor detroit. At least they should be better this year. Unlike the Bills. I almost vommited on the field on sunday.

I learned that waiting on a TE in a draft that is filled with TE's was a smart move. Visanthe Schiancoe FTW!

Well he did miss 2 FG's on opening night, one of them a chip shot - his job appears safe for now, but he'd better not miss any more if he wants to stay employed!

Because the Hawks won a single game at home means they're not bad? Granted it was the 49ers but they do this every year - they'll get some big-time momentum in a home game or two and knock off a real football team. It's going to take more than a single game to convince me they're better than 4-12-ish on the season. If Hasselbeck isn't knocked out before week 5 I'll be stunned. As usual the Seahawks did nothing to provide legit depth behind him. That line sucks - once Hass gets injured - and he will - it all falls apart.
