  1. Unfortunately, it's about the only way he's going to be able to score this season (at least with Ponder at QB). I disagree, because I feel that Patterson is the kind of player that that could complement Ponder's lack of talent. Get him on short outs, bubble screens, or end arounds, basically high percentage completion plays, and it's obvious to everyone that he has the talent and physical ability to house it. I think it's somewhat of a mystery why the Vikings haven't utilized this obvious asset yet. I do think that time is coming though.
  2. Got an invite to DOTA 2 so I decided to give it a whirl. Good lord is that game fun and addictive.
  3. I've said it before and I'll say it again. He's a stud, but temper your expectations in year one.
  4. IMO dynasty wise he has all the skills and supporting cast to be the best RB of the class. I'm just thinking he's not going to take an early lead in his rookie season because of deficiencies in teachable areas like blocking.
  5. I think that's indicative of missed blocks and not knowing his playbook very well during the first week of preseason. Kind of Coughlin's way of saying, "look I now you're about as badass running the ball as it gets, but there's more to being a RB then just taking a handoff"On one hand you have Coughlin usually favoring a vet RB and then you have Ware being pretty unimpressive yesterday. I'm not going to bank on Wilson being a stud RB in his rookie season, but with Bradshaw's injury history his opportunity could come faster than I expect. He'll get there, but temper your expectations in year one folks.
  6. Sign me up for this train ride. I've taken DMC in a few leagues and so far the rosters are shallow to the point where I'm not going to target anyone as far as handcuff goes. I'll likely look at Goodson when my deeper leagues get rolling, but I think in the event of an injury I'll hope that I've one of the other gems I've acquired has emerged.
  7. Sick posting! Thanks for the link. Anyone else feel like at the end of the day he's going to be the best RB of the class? That is if he can ever figure out pass blocking.
  8. randall the drunken sconie cobber might get robbered if he puts the ball on the turf like he did last year and he will be out of the starting lineup faster then brett the wiener texter farve and you can take that to the bank ugly stepchilds to the east drunk on the milwaukee beast brohans
  9. Not so sure Mad Cow. It's always been a best of the sales sale, but since they have flash/community vote deals, plus they will have a new indie bundle it may not.
  10. Since it's the final day and I have money left in my steam wallet does anyone have any recommendations on some of the silly cheap hidden deals games for like less than 4.99? I'm thinking about just buying a ton of cheap games instead of a few higher priced ones, but it's hard to identify the must plays. Any genre will do.
  11. Just a heads up with all these Ubisoft games in the sale, buyer beware. The DRM is terrible and must maintain a connection even in single player. A lot of very bad reviews in the different game forums. If a game has a forum be sure to check it out for major issues.

  13. Picked up Dungeons of Dredmor during the xmas steam sale and now they they did a free xpack release, so I decided to give it a whirl. The game is ruthlessly addicting.
  14. If it was on purpose, why would the coaching staff be upset about it? It obviously wasn't at their direction.As I suspected the weight gain was not the result of being lazy: http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/06/04/martellus-bennett-im-291-because-i-rocked-out-in-the-weight-room/ Glad to see he's on the Bonds diet now.
  15. He's 31 which isn't too damning but consider he has a lengthy injury history with concussions. He ended last year on IR after suffering his third concussion.Their was some talk that he would consider, or should, consider retiring last year. After the first concussion the chances to get concussed go up. Three in one year is big concern for any player but I think it would have to even more concerning for a 31 yr old TE. He says he's fine but I would imagine Cameron will get a shot at some time this year. Last year I didn't feel he had a reasonable chance for playing time but with a year under his belt and finally getting his shot at the end of last year showed that this season he should get his shot. ROTO TE Ben Watson Watson is nothing special. The Pats drafted two TE's who immediately produced better than Watson did in his entire time in NE.Terrible logic. The two TEs they drafted are historically special. Gronk and Hernandez showed things in their rookie season that Cameron didn't. Cameron has a Gates like road to travel, and a few inopportune drops like Watson had in NE would derail him fast. Great upside, but he's got to have so much fall perfectly.
