  1. Crap. With Chicago D, I’m now ranked 11th. Turn it down a notch, fellas, and save some for the bye weeks!
  2. Yeah, I'm having a team meeting tomorrow to tell Gurley, Hill, Juju, Kelce and my motley assortment of 3 QBs (Dalton, Carr, Keenum) to pump the brakes a bit. It's a marathon, not a sprint. I'm just pissed I don't have Josh Gordon on my team since it sounds like he should break all WR records in the 14 remaining games now that he's a Patriot (I'll see myself out.... )
  3. And what if the D blitzes and he needs to know how he's supposed to break his route and adjust? You're acting like he's plug n play, and 2013 was just yesterday (Calvin Johnson and Eric Decker say "hi"), and he'll just step right in and roll. I'd sell high (ha! pun intended) if someone values him as highly as you do, but I'd mostly hold since I don't expect most folks in my leagues to have on the double-thick rose colored glasses that you've been wearing in the 5 or 6 Josh Gordon threads. [note to self: why oh why did I get myself involved in the Josh Gordon thread?...]
  4. You've been shaking like this for the past 5 years since that magically 2013 season. Good luck with that nasty case of the shakes.
  5. 239.55 with Bears D left to go. Ranked 49th. Wow. This might be my high water mark for the history of this contest.
  6. The universe... If he doesn't succeed with this great opportunity, it reminds me of this classic old joke... A fellow was stuck on his rooftop in a flood. He was praying to God for help. Soon a man in a rowboat came by and the fellow shouted to the man on the roof, "Jump in, I can save you." The stranded fellow shouted back, "No, it's OK, I'm praying to God and he is going to save me." So the rowboat went on. Then a motorboat came by. "The fellow in the motorboat shouted, "Jump in, I can save you." To this the stranded man said, "No thanks, I'm praying to God and he is going to save me. I have faith." So the motorboat went on. Then a helicopter came by and the pilot shouted down, "Grab this rope and I will lift you to safety." To this the stranded man again replied, "No thanks, I'm praying to God and he is going to save me. I have faith." So the helicopter reluctantly flew away. Soon the water rose above the rooftop and the man drowned. He went to Heaven. He finally got his chance to discuss this whole situation with God, at which point he exclaimed, "I had faith in you but you didn't save me, you let me drown. I don't understand why!" To this God replied, "I sent you a rowboat and a motorboat and a helicopter, what more did you expect?"
  7. A day removed from that game and I gotta say that I'm feeling better about this team. We definitely should've won that game yesterday, but seeing Carr play so damn well, seeing Cooper step up big time, seeing our O-line (and rookie Left Tackle) play well against a top D line, seeing our VERY young, half-rookie D-line play tough most of the game....all those things lead me to be very hopeful heading into next week's game. We build on that performance, beat the Phins and Browns and we're at least at a decent 2-2. signed, Rose Colored Glasses also signed, Too Old To Take This Crap As Seriously As I Used To
  8. Making that 4th and short would’ve helped as well.
  9. yeah, he definitely should have thrown his franchise QB under the bus after a bad game and we should start looking for a replacement. C'mon, what's the coach supposed to say there except be very supportive of his best player. I have lots of problems with how the game turned upside down in the 4th quarter, but I have zero problems with the Gruden quotes you included here.
  10. The last week and a half has been brutal for us Raiders fans. Feeling like the Al years all over again.
  11. FFPC: Someone offered me Bell, Peyton Barber and Rishard Matthews for Zeke. I declined saying "Bell is your problem! " But Bell is MY problem in another dynasty league where I own him. I don't need any more shares of Bell right now, thanks.
  12. I was going to say the same thing. I watched the game in the background at a bar while talking with friends, and it was handy to know, at a glance, that it was 3rd down.
  13. was thinking they might wait until after their bye week to bring Wentz back, but that's not until week 9. No way they wait that long for a "convenient" 2 weeks off to ramp him back in. Better have a really good backup QB in leagues where you own Wentz...
