    Green Bay Packers win Super Bowl XLV 

    You already knew this, but I felt like it was necessary to mention their 31-25 victory over the Steelers last night if we wanted to maintain any notion that we were a football blog.

    It also lets me start posting non-Super Bowl related things, since we’ve now moved on to bigger and better things…like the chance of having NO football next year…or the Patriots winning the next Super Bowl!

    Just a couple thoughts on the big game though…

    • I feel bad for Christina Aguilera.
    • Greg Jennings’ post-game interview was awkward to watch/listen to. Seemed he was trying to remember the lines that he memorized before the game or something.
    • I may be in the minority of those who found the Justin Beiber / Ozzy Osbourne commercial funny

    Obligatory Super Bowl survey 

    Because fantasy football in most of its forms for the 2010-11 season is over and because you probably don’t want to bet on how long the National Anthem (sung by Christina Aguilera) will last, here’s a free bet you can make on who will win the big game!

    Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

      I would prefer neither.

    Week 8 FAIL: Stumblin' Steelers 

    Continuing with a new post for this season, here are a few players who just didn’t quite live up to expectations this week. Were they over-rated to begin with? Did they just have a bad game? Were they benched because their team was dominating (or getting dominated?) It’s probably just a one week mishap, but if they land on this list a couple weeks in a row, you might start worrying! Anyways, feel free to add to the discussion with your own. Maybe someone that you blame this week’s loss on?

    Last week it was the Cowboys (and Felix Jones still represents this week!) but this week the team-wide failure is awarded to the Steelers. Pittsburgh couldn’t find a way to pass against the tough Saints defense and it hurt Roethlisberger and his receivers.

    As I mentioned last week, I’ve now included the entire season count of FAIL’s as a new worksheet in the spreadsheet, so you can click the “Season” tab and see where each player stacks up. As expected, drama-king himself, Brett Favre, leads the pack!

    Anyways, here are the rest of them…
    (More …)

      I’m new to fantasy football, this is not an excuse, just a fact.

      I need to remind myself that this is my year to learn. My goal is to stay in the top 7 of 14 team league.

      My team failed this week, here are some of the reasons why:

      I started Knowshon Moreno against my better judgment. I decided that asking for advice would be better than following my gut feel.

      I didn’t use my critical thinking skills which would have told me that BJGE and Woodhead would have a good day against the Vikings. I’m really upset about this, they burned holes in my bench.

      I didn’t expect Hinds Ward, Heath Miller and the Steelers to just suck wind against the Saints who just caught a beat down by the Browns last week!

      Steve Johnson decided to be mediocre again on the day I decided to start him.

      I followed advise of the “knowledgeable” and started Seattle’s D/ST – which netted me 2 points. I would have done better to stick with the Redskins.

      I actually knew the Titans would loose yesterday. I just always start Chris Johnson no matter what because he’s Chris Johnson. Blount out performed CJ however and burned a hole in my bench.

      I just needed to type all of my pain from week 8 out loud somewhere. I hope I can put it behind me now and move forward.

      Thank goodness I didn’t start James Jones.

        I’ll defer to user Squish on this one. See his response below…

      Brandon,

      Mike Williams was actually injured his knee (bruised) in his game so that’s his excuse. He had no catches before leaving and got the 27 yard catch after returning.

      I know you guys aren’t in the habit of adding kickers but Nick Folk deserves props this week. He netted me -1 points in my money league which penalizes for misses.

      Janet, you seem to have made all the right calls this week they just turned out bad. On paper, the Seattle defense should have destroyed OAK. It was a fluke that they didn’t. In reality, the Rams had the best matchup this week and their defense followed through as it should have. Seattle was expected to do the same. It just happened weird. Was Cleveland supposed to smoke the Saints last week? I think not. The stats are broadly predictable most of the time but not always. Just stick with good advice and you’ll end up getting the better results in the end.

      Moreno gets way too many goal-line carries to bench normally and Tebow stole his TD this week.

      What skills could have told you that the NE backfield would play well? Minnesota is generally a fairly stout run defense and NE generally has a fairly useless backfield by committee even at its best.

      I present no excuses for Heath Miller. He should be back on track with Big Ben at the helm but he isn’t. I’m as confused as you are. Ward has a good excuse in that he is old. The Steelers are also passing less this year.

      Steve Johnson had a fine day, it’s all you can expect of a waiver pick-up. Draft an elite WR if you want better results than a TD and 37 yards receiving each week. Generally if a WR gets in the endzone, he has had a good week regardless of yardage or catches. I think because of all the big performances by WRs this year that people are starting to forget they aren’t a reliable source of scoring.

      If you had started Blount over CJ you would have been a prophet of FF. Nobody could have predicted that. though CJ got into the endzone so why complain?

      Some weeks just don’t work out the way they are expected too. This week in my money league I’m going to score less than half the points my team (the league leader) normally does. I am already past it. I had bye week troubles but there was no excuse. My team had their off-week which is fine with me. I know I have a great team and this was a fluke. Let it go and you’ll be much better off.

          Well it started out just the comment to you about Folk and Williams but then the other comment appeared while I was typing the response to your list. I started addressing it and the next thing you know it was more of that than the original comment lol. Just a case of what happens when you address two posts in one I guess.

      I have a sure fire way to make Big Ben put up mad numbers – All I gotta do is keep him on my bench!! I am in one of the lowest scoring contests of the year against the team I am tied with for 1st in my division. My QB puts up less than SIX POINTS!!!
      Just hope Andre can blow it up tonight. All I need is a couple TD’s and I can eek out a win…

      • Hawgman 11:22 am on November 2, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Update (as if anyone else really cares), Andre did his job, but I still lost by a frakkin HALF POINT! I blame it on the Miami D (dropping all those INTs they had in their hands) and/or Big Ben.
        Oh well, on to the next victim! He has 5 or 6 bye-bye babies, so I am hoping for the best.

    In case anyone was worried about Ben Roethlisberger’s foot injury, Jay Glazer tweets “big ben appears to be fine. i’m told it was a superficial injury and if a reg. season game was sunday he’d be able to play.” However, that still doesn’t make me comfortable enough to list him as a top 10 quarterback this year.
