  1. Keep the name. Change the logo to a certain red-hued potato. Problem solved. Go Spuds!
  2. Can someone post a link (or two) to some decent, updated dynasty rankings? TIA.
  3. I think Hernandez has much more upside than either of them. I think he is a much better route runner, has better hands, and seems to have a knack for finding soft spots in zones. I think Brady is going to take advantage of the mismatches this kid will create, especially in the deep middle. I do like those 2, but not as much as Hernandez.Is Hernandez better than Ben Watson? I'm not knocking his skills but I'm wary of NE TEs in general. More so if Welker continues to come back strong, as is being reported. The buzz surrounding Cook was intense last year during training camp, prior to his injury. Of the three, with what we know today, Cook is the one I'd take as my TE2.
  4. Bump Big Ben? Looks like the Steelers may air it out more this season.
  5. Hey F&L -- if you had to pick a Denver WR to start for your fantasy team, who would it be -- Marshall or Royal, and why? Thanks as always for your excellent insights.
  6. I'd move those guys for Calvin. You'd still have great wr's...But do you make that deal if you're the AJ or Calvin owner? I wouldn't. As a general rule, I don't trade true studs for a bunch of lesser players. I build my team around my studs. Boldin is a nice player but Roy Williams/Antonio Bryant as throw ins? No thanks. If you can find someone who's willing to make that deal, I say go for it. Without question, it would absolutely be a great deal for you. But if I'm the Calvin owner, I'm countering you with Boldin + Greg Jennings. Even then, I'm probably not moving an ascending superstar like Calvin. What's the point?
  7. I'm curious about what people think of Sidney Rice's prospects this upcoming season. I certainly was high on him after a rookie year in which he showed stud potential and a nose for the endzone. But Rice was injured a lot this year and never seemed to get into a rhythm when he returned, though he still has a nose for the endzone (15 for 141 and 4 TDs in 2008). Was this simply a season derailed by injury? Can he bounce back in 2009? Will the jury remain out until the Vikings' QB and HC situations are resolved? Will Rice be able to break out in a run-first offense whose passing game seems to focus on Berrian, Wade and Shiancoe? Sidney Rice currently resides at the end of my WR bench and I'm wondering if that spot might be better served by Josh Morgan, Michael Crabtree, etc. Thanks as always for your input.
  8. Very helpful analysis, thanks. Do you think QB accuracy is an innate quality or is it something that can be improved upon signficiantly via practice reps and live game experience? In other words, can you "teach" accuracy?Unfortunately, like you I'm a Tom Brady owner and I'm in a position where I need to choose between Ryan and JTO this weekend. My gut is leaning toward Ryan. JTO definitely has a better match-up against the Seahawks but he looked so bad last weekend in terms of ugly interceptions and ball protection in the pocket, I kind of lost whatever faith I had in him.
  9. Can you expand your thoughts on Ryan? I've only been able to watch highlights but he seems poised in the pocket, a surprisingly adept "game manager" for a rookie. Now I'm hearing comparisons to Peyton Manning. What are people seeing in Ryan, specifically, that reminds them of Peyton? ATL appears to be a run-first offense -- does Ryan have enough weapons to be a true QB1 this season? What are his prospects down the road?This is a great thread that I've come to rely on, along with the Sons of the Tundra rankings, and I really appreciate the insights and opinions of F&L and others here. Thanks everybody!
  10. It may not have been a hit, but it's definitely murder. Second degree murder, perhaps. It doesn't have to be premeditated. Unless I'm missing something, if you fire a gun at someone while committing a buglary and that person dies, it's murder. This guy is an attorney?
  11. He sounds like a pretty nice guy who made a few bad decisions when he was young, just like many of us have done as young men and women. This tragedy is made worse by the fact that he had such a bad reputation, and was misunderstood and villified by the media. RIP Sean Taylor.
  12. It sounds like the first breakin was a search for something. Drawers and a safe rifled, and there was a report yesterday that an AC vent was damaged as well.So the second may have been another search for 'something'.Makes me think of No Country For Old Men, where the protagonist hides all the money in an air vent and the psychotic hit man eventually finds it there. I doubt there's a connection but it's possible that something was hidden in the AC vent, or that the killers thought something was in there. But I can't understand why they would intentionally kick the door in and shoot him if they were just looking for valuables. If I'm a burglar and I discover that the homeowner is unexpectedly at home, I'm getting out of there as quickly as possible. It doesn't make sense. I really hope they catch these scum. I want to see their faces when they're caught and facing the death penalty or life in prison without parole.Then again, if it was an intentional hit, why didn't they shoot him in the head, kill any witnesses, etc? Hitting the femoral artery is a thousand-to-one shot. I smell macho stupidity ... "Oh, there's someone home? Let me bust down the door and put a cap in his ### because I'm a brainless thug."

  14. This part of today's Washington Post article is making me rethink my previous position that this was a botched burglary. If it's true that ST locked the door, and then the killers went out of their way to kick it in and shoot him, that sounds premeditated to me. What an astounding tragedy. I hope they catch these bastards.
