  1. Bump, don't forget to put your Picks in for Week 2.
  2. "Colts claim former Redskins RB Matt Jones via waivers Print By Kevin Patra Around the NFL writer Published: Sept. 3, 2017 at 01:20 p.m. Updated: Sept. 3, 2017 at 01:30 p.m. Matt Jones found a new home. The Indianapolis Colts claimed the running back off waivers after he was cut by the Washington Redskins on Saturday, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported. Jones, a former third-round pick, spent two years in Washington, where he compiled 950 yards on 243 carries with six touchdowns. The team became frustrated over his penchant for fumbling, but he did earn 4.6 yards per carry in limited snaps last season. In Indy, Jones should battle for backup snaps with rookie Marlon Mack behind the ageless Frank Gore. Mack received rave reviews during training camp and popped off a couple chunk runs in the preseason. Adding Jones to compete with the rookie, however, provides more potential depth for a team that could focus on the ground game early in the year. Jones owns enticing speed and power combination. As a rookie he looked to be the future of the Redskins' backfield before coaches soured on him after the string of fumbling flubs. A fresh start in Indianapolis could be all the athletic back needs to unlock his talent. With questions about Andrew Luck's status for Week 1 swirling around Indy, the Colts are likely to focus on the ground game early in the season. Sunday's waiver claim gives them another back to ride. It's a cheap roll of the dice for new GM Chris Ballard, and one that has the potential to pay off big time if Jones ever lives up to his talent." I think I am the only one on the planet keeping him... we shall see, I hope he doesn't fumble, cause if he does, he will be gone. Swamp
  3. Fixed it with IE. So if Chrome gives you grief, go over to Internet Explorer. All done... good luck
  4. Sigmund, just released his rankings. Thank you. Considering that I go to draft in less than 2 hours, at least I get someone to give me an idea, to bounce off of mine. Well done. Swamp
  5. Congratulations NBZ, Seattle kicked me out, and you are now champion. Well done. And I had my next two weeks picked out as well Week 11: AZ over Minn Week 12: Oak over Car Carolina is slowly playing better, so I may not have stayed with that one.

  8. How will Shurmur handle the Vikings? Here is a good description of his 2nd stint with the Eagles. Looks like he could really liven up the Vikings offense. Which will greatly help the above average defense. "On January 20, 2013, Shurmur accepted a job with the Philadelphia Eagles as their offensive coordinator.[6] Working alongside new head coach Chip Kelly, Shurmur helped orchestrate one of the most efficient offenses in the NFL. Shurmur led an offense that set a number of team records, including points (442), total net yards (6,676), touchdowns (53), passing yards (4,406) and fewest turnovers (19) en route to an NFC East title. Additionally, the Eagles set an NFL record with 99 plays of 20+ yards and became the first team since the 1991 Buffalo Bills to lead the league in rushing while ranking last in time of possession.[1] Shurmur’s unique ability to develop young talent at the quarterback position was once again on display in 2013. Second-year QB Nick Foles enjoyed a breakout season under the direction of Shurmur, throwing for 27 touchdowns and only two interceptions while posting the third-best QB rating (119.2) and third-lowest interception percentage (0.63%) in NFL history. Foles also became just the second player in league history to throw for seven touchdowns in a game during a match-up against the Oakland Raiders, and one of three who have done so without throwing an interception.[1] Head coach[edit] Shurmur was named interim head coach after Chip Kelly was fired on December 29, 2015.[7] Shurmur's one game was a 35-30 win over the Giants that was for 2nd place in the NFC East. The Eagles offense gained 435 yards of total offense and scored four touchdowns, highlighted by DeMarco Murray running for a 54 yard touchdown in his first carry under Shurmur. Shurmur interviewed for the Eagles head coaching job and was considered one of the leading candidates until the end, but he lost out to Chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson." From Wikipedia....

  12. Week 8 Win: Seattle, Denver, Miami, Cincinnati, Minnesota, Buffalo, Green Bay, New England Lose: LA, Indy, Cleveland, Miami, Houston, San Francisco, Chicago, Buffalo Breaking two of my Survivor rules in one week, "never bet on a Road team to win", and "stay away from Division Games". But with the Bills manhandling the Brady-less Patriots in Week 4, I see revenge. Brady is 25-3 against the Bills. New England has not been swept in a season sweep in 15 seasons.
