  1. We drafted on Sept 1st. If I remember correctly, it was widely accepted that Bell would be in that Monday morning to sign. I don't remember anyone even remotely hinting at Bell sitting out for the season. No way to realistically predict the unknown, but I voted slightly bigger miss based on the fact that he wasn't signed- so there were red flags.
  2. We run a Team Offensive Line. Scoring is as follows: Passing and Rushing Yards- .05 pts each Sacks allowed: 0 = 20 pts 1 = 15 pts 2 = 12 pts 3 = 7 pts 4 = 5 pts 5+ = 0 pts Offensive Points- .7 each First Downs- .4 pts each This will give you an average of about 55 pts a game, a top end of around 65-70 PPG and a low end of about 38 PPG. You can lower the points to get to a lower PPG Avg. Teams are allowed to have up to 3, but only one can start. Having one of the top 3 can be a good advantage.
  3. Another desert post. This cake is easy to make and money for taste. Brown Sugar Caramel Pound Cake Ingredients: 1 ½ cups butter softened 2 cups light brown sugar, packed 1 cup granulated sugar 5 large eggs 3 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking powder ½ teaspoon salt 1 cup whole milk 1 8oz bag toffee chips 1 cup pecans, chopped Carmel Drizzle: 1 – 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk 1 cup brown sugar 2 tablespoons butter ½ teaspoon vanilla extract Directions: Preheat oven to 325 spray a 12 cup Bundt pan with cooking spray with flour Beat butter until creamy. Add sugars beating until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time. In medium bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt. Add flour mix to batter alternately with milk, beat until just combined. Stir in toffee buts and pecans. Spoon batter into pan and bake 85 minutes or until wooden pick comes out clean. To prevent excess browning, cover cake with foil while baking. Let cake cool in pan for 10 minutes. Remove from pan, and let cool completely on a wire rack. Spoon Caramel Drizzle over cooled cake. Directions for Caramel Drizzle In a medium saucepan, combine condensed milk and brown sugar; bring to a boil over medium-high heat, whisking frequently. Reduce heat, and SIMMER for 8 minutes, whisking frequently. Remove from heat; whisk in butter and vanilla. Let cool for 5 minutes before using. NOTE: Make sure you drizzle the caramel while it’s still HOT. Notes: There is a lot of batter with this. Make sure you use a 12 cup bundt pan- or fill a 10 cup about 3/4 of the way and adjust the baking time down. Start checking at the 55 minute mark. You can use the remaining batter in loaf pans or mini bundts to make smaller cakes. Another helpful trick is to coat the toffee chips in flour before adding to the batter. It helps keep them in place through the baking process. If you don't, the toffee will sink to the bottom and create sticking issues with the pan.
  4. Million Dollar Mac and Cheese 1 pound cellentani pasta (may sub rigatoni, penne or macaroni) 4 tablespoons butter 1/4 cup all-purpose flour 3 cups milk 1 12 oz. can evaporated milk 1 tablespoon cornstarch 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard 2 tablespoons Worcestershire 1 tablespoon chicken bouillon ( I crush up 4 Chicken Bullion Cubes) 1 tsp EACH onion pwdr, garlic pwdr, dried parsley, salt 1/2 teaspoon pepper 1/4-1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional) 2 cups shredded smoked gouda 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar 6-8 slices provolone cheese 1 cup sour cream 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese Panko Topping (optional) 3/4 cup panko breadcrumbs 2 tablespoon butter 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil Instructions Cook pasta just until al dente according to package directions – don’t overcook! Strain and rinse with cold water. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish. Set aside. Melt 4 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium heat then whisk in flour. Cook, while stirring for 2 minutes. Turn heat to low then gradually whisk in milk. Whisk cornstarch into evaporated milk and gradually add to skillet followed by Dijon mustard and all remaining spices/seasonings. Bring to a boil, whisking constantly then reduce heat to medium and simmer, whisking occasionally until thickened (but not overly thick). Remove from heat and whisk in shredded cheese until melted. Add pasta and toss until evenly coated (it will seem like a lot of extra sauce which is a good thing). Pour half of the macaroni and cheese into prepared baking dish. Layer macaroni evenly with provolone cheese followed by an even layer of sour cream. Pour remaining macaroni and cheese over sour cream and spread into an even layer. Sprinkle with 1 cup Parmesan cheese (or more to taste). Panko topping (optional): Melt butter in olive oil over medium heat in a medium skillet. Add panko and stir to coat. Continue cooking until crumbs become golden brown. Evenly sprinkle over macaroni and cheese. Bake 25-30 minutes or until bubbly and inside provolone is melted. If not topping with panko, broil until Parmesan is golden. Cool 10 minutes to set before serving. Recipe Notes ***I DO NOT RECOMMEND ASSEMBLING THIS AHEAD OF TIME. The pasta seeps up the sauce. Instead, you can prepare the sauce and refrigerate separate from the pasta. Cook the pasta, toss it in a touch of olive oil so it doesn't stick together, and refrigerate. When ready to assemble, warm the sauce (you can do this in the microwave). You might need to add a touch of milk to thin, then proceed as instructed. This prep will make assembly come together quite quickly. *You just need enough provolone to cover the 9x13 in a single layer. Typically 8 slices medium provolone or 6 large slices as pictured from Costco. Gouda slices would also be delicious. ***Feel free to swap cheeses for a combination of whatever you have on hand - Asiago, Gouda, smoked cheddar, Monterrey, etc - the possibilities are endless! You can also mix in bacon, ham, etc. **I use crushed Bacon Ritz crackers instead of the panko topping. It helps give a subtle bacon flavor to the dish. Overall, this is my most requested side dish- not just at Thanksgiving, but for all events. It's really like having pasta mixed with an awesome cheese fondue.
  5. Ok, time to add a couple more. Zesty Carrots 1 lb. carrots, cut into 1/2" slices 2 T. Minced Onion 3/4 Cup Mayonnaise 1/2 tsp Worcesteshire 1 T. Prepared Horseradish (Not horseradish sauce) 1/4 cup water 1/4 tsp pepper 1/2 cup breadcrumbs (I like crushed Ritz crackers instead) 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese Cook carrots on stovetop of microwave until tender. Place drained carrots in 1 quart baking dish. In a small bowl, combine the next 6 ingredients. Pour over cooked carrots. Sprinkle breadcrumbs on top and bake at 350 deg. for 25 to 30 minutes. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese and return to oven for 2-3 minutes or until cheese has melted. Approx 6 servings. These are the most requested carrots at Thanksgiving from our family. They make a really good change from the sweet varieties I always see. I'll post my Mac and Cheese next.

    Is anyone hearing anything regarding Kendall Beckwith? I saw a small note that he was practicing last week. He could step into a huge role soon.
  7. As one who has worked in restaurants all my life, if I got offered 3 million at 64 years old, I would have taken it so fast, I would have made Speedy Gonzales look like a turtle. The wear and tear this career takes on your body is no joke. 5 Million? No-brainer. I'm retiring. Not to mention, assuming he truly does make 230K a year, it would take another 22 years to make 5 million.

    Canadian Bacon Sliced MacIntosh Apples Chicken Sausage (Onions also, but OP said they didn't count. Also, cheese is a smoked gouda/Mozz blend)
  10. PPR can be easily balanced by also giving points for number of rushes. We give .4 points per rush (as long as the running back has more than 4 rushes) and 2 points per reception. It balalnces the WR's and RB's pretty nicely.

    I watched this game. Sean Lee had at least 4 instances where he had the tackle dead to rights, but the player blew right through him. He also seemed to be out of position several times, which is very unlike him. I think he got benched in the third quarter, but I saw him back in there during the fourth. TBH, he looked done.
