    Ask the Geeks 

    Cory: Week 2 and beyond I have Romo, Big Ben and Donovan McNabb as QB options. Who should I go with week 2 and beyond? Who should I dangle as trade bait?

    Brandon’s take: For week 2, you’re going to want to start Tony Romo. Although you probably can’t expect another 5 touchdown, 300+ yard performance from him again, he should put up solid numbers against a Miami team that was beaten by Jason Campbell last week. McNabb would usually have been the pick here, but given his 184 yard performance against Green Bay last week, it’s hard to recommend him until he has at least one solid game under his belt. (More …)

      how bad are the chiefs going to be and how is this going to affect lj’s numbers ??i’m thinking of trading him, chester taylor and donte stallworth for frank gore and adrian petersen. what do you think?

      Depends on who your receivers are and if Chester Taylor is your number two running back or not. If you have 3 good receivers other than Stallworth, and Taylor IS your number 2 RB, then that trade would make sense (unless it’s Adrian Peterson from Chicago).

      I would like to point out Dan-O that your best candidate for a Ben Trade is someone who overvalues him. and either way you pick this week you are in the clear, your opponent ( who one of the two writers looks up to) is set up for a flop week.

    Is it the Kellen Clemens era in NY? 

    It appears that Chad Pennington is taking a seat for the team’s next game against the Baltimore Ravens and I can’t say I blame him. First of all, he just got abused by the Patriots and was boo’ed by the home crowd when he tried to hobble off the field to save the team from using a time out (usually considered a noble thing to do, but apparently not to the New York fans). His ankle is no doubt still hurting from how painful it appeared on Sunday. Secondly, his next game is against the Baltimore Ravens. I’m pretty sure the last thing he wants is Ray Lewis ripping his head off as he tries to limp out of the way. He’ll gladly “pass the torch” for this game to the young Clemens. Nothing bad can really come out of this for Pennington, as Clemens will be made to look like crap against Baltimore, Pennington will be able to heal, and the fans will want a QB that can lead them to victory the week afterwards when the Jets play an easier Miami defense (can you say “Pennington to the rescue!”).

    My first impressions of ScreamingSports.com 

    Screaming SportsScreamingSports is a relatively new web site for sports fans and fantasy sports players in particular, which I actually am only aware of because their banner started appearing on this blog today (our advertising is all context-sensitive and managed by Google’s algorithms; we never know what’ll show up there and are often amused by what does). According to TechCrunch, this is the niche they’re aiming to fill:

    ScreamingSports lets you create your own personal fantasy sports profile (blog, pics, friends) and aggregate all of your fantasy sports teams by just dropping in your credentials. You can connect with other players, compete for points, and get updates on general sports news. For your teams, SS will let you know how they’re performing, what games are coming up, as well as last minute game breakers like injuries or expulsion. Any changes you make to you teams in ScreamingSports are reflected in the hosting site and vice versa.

    I signed up for it today, and here are my initial thoughts. (More …)

    Cut Your Losses: Week 2 

    Every week, I’ll be letting you know which borderline players I think have dropped so far in value that they are no longer relevant in the world of fantasy football and seem unlikely to become worthy of a roster spot again this season. As we’ve only got one week of information to go on so far, there aren’t many guys who fit into that category yet, but there are a few…

      I’m still waiting for the quarterback that can run like Vick and throw like Manning…will we ever see it? Vince Young obviously is not that man. Of course, we’ve never seen a great running quarterback on a team with great wide receivers…if that happened then maybe we’d have a better test. But, oh wait…the Titans got rid of the only good receiver they had last year. I guess they were simplifying the play book for Young because of his low test scores in the combine, so they just took all the passing plays out of it.

    3, 2, 1…Brady Quinn! 

    The Cleveland Browns took the first step to getting Brady Quinn under center when they traded week 1 starter Charlie Frye to the Seattle Seahawks yesterday. Now all that lies in the way of Quinn’s promotion is the poor play of Derek Anderson against a surprisingly good defense of the Cincinnati Bengals (last week at least). This whole situation is becoming quite a mess for Cleveland and coach Romeo Crennel (who I don’t predict lasting beyond this season unless Quinn proves to be the savior that the team has been looking for). It was obvious that Frye was not the answer, as it is obvious that Anderson is not either. It’s time to start Brady Quinn and see what he’s got…who cares if he takes a beating.
