Goodell, Blow the Whistle on the Ref Lockout Already!

There’s no question that the NFL replacement officials are having a tough time on the job.  It’s hard to fault them entirely–these guys are in over their heads, are under-trained and are being bullied by players and coaches. But just when I was about to feel sorry for the replacements, unabashed bias is now being … Continue reading

who ever cared about jersey sales for a back-up QB?

Nike is suing Reebok for capitalizing on Tebow Jets jerseys.

Bounty-gate! And its fantasy implications…

Given that it’s the off-season and the March Madness is just warming up, I won’t chide you for being unfamiliar with Bounty-gate.  But if you really call yourself a football fan, you should be aware–it’s eclipsed Peyton Manning’s future as the biggest NFL story right now.  Essentially, the story broke last Friday, that the New … Continue reading

Your fantasy team is in shambles.

I didn’t happen to watch the Miami v. Denver game last week, though I caught parts of it.  … Continue reading

Week 2 – Injury Updates

As of Sunday morning, here are the latest injury updates.  (I’ve only included players that are on the fantasy radar.) Roddy White – thigh – probable to play.  Shouldn’t be any concern starting him here…except facing the Eagles’ secondary. Lee Evans – ankle – probable to play. Stevie Johnson – groin – will play. Marion … Continue reading

WR Brandon Stokley signs with Giants

The Giants signed veteran Wide Receiver, Brandon Stokley, to fill in as their #1 slot receiver.  Picked up by the Redskins in the free agency flurry this summer, Stokley turned them down because the roster was too crowded.  Given Victor Cruz’s dropped balls last week, I think his experience should be a step up for … Continue reading
