  1. Can anyone explain to me why Zach Ertz isn't leading this team in targets? The rest of the team has stone hands, while this guy reels in everything that comes his way. No one else on the team makes that catch he made last night reaching over the defender for the ball. I understand last year he wasn't a good enough blocker. Well, besides Matthews hopefully getting it together the WRs are downright awful. So why on earth is this guy not a bigger part of the offense?
  2. I'm not saying Starks is amazing or anything, all I know is this is what my bench looks like right now: Eddie Lacy: -1 point James Starks: 24.2 points This is a PPR league, and Eddie Lacy hasn't topped 20 points yet this season. That's all I need to know.
  3. Billions of dollars? I don't think Fox News minds at all that national politics has become a circus. It's good for ratings. Oh I'm quite sure they're happy to be lining their pockets. I know Rupert Murdoch would just as happily own a liberal station if it made him the same amount of money. What I meant is that in acting as the de-facto media outlet for the GOP, they have helped turn the GOP into a laughingstock.
  4. From what I remember from last year, they like Bolden so much on special teams that they don't want to risk playing him at RB. White was the one who got the snaps when Lewis missed a game a few weeks back.
  5. Fox News and the rest of the right-wing media are getting exactly what they deserve - they created this monster. By constantly brainwashing people about how horrible Obama and the liberals are and constantly appealing to the lowest common demoninator, they have pushed the GOP waaaaaay too far to the right. Now these guys have to be complete nutjobs to win the primaries, and then they get destroyed going against the Democrat for POTUS because they've gone so far right. After Obama destroyed Romney in '12 there was lke 2 days there where Republicans were talking about how they'd have to change their game plan and start courting women and minorities if they want to remain relevant. Then a few days later they forgot about all that and just doubled-down on the stupid some more.
  6. This is true. But what's concerning to me is that Lacy just doesn't look good. It's not like he's averaging 5 yards per carry but just isn't getting enough touches. I admit I haven't been watching whole Packers games all year or anything, but the only play I can recall this year where he looked remotely good was that TD run against Denver last week.
  7. Eddie Lacy exited Week 9 against the Panthers with a groin injury. Lacy had been almost completely phased out of the offense after fumbling in the second quarter, but the injury knocked him out of the game for good. Lacy finished with just 10 yards on five carries, and he now has less than 50 yards rushing in all but two games this season. In a year of first-round busts, Lacy has been perhaps the most disappointing of all. Even if he plays this week, Lacy will be nothing more than a touchdown-or-bust RB3 against the Lions. Source: ESPN Nov 9 - 10:14 AM Take a week or two off Eddie...
  8. Gotta figure whatever happened at practice last week had him in the doghouse for last night's game.
  9. Not that it's a surprise, but Jason Peters has been ruled OUT for Sunday. Lane takes over left tackle and unfortunately for him, Greg Hardy. After the way they destroyed our O-line last time, I'm officially worried.
  10. That thing with the chest-bumping a Seattle player definitely seems like a red flag. If you wanna catch up with your former teammates, talk to them after the game. We see that stuff all the time. But in the middle of a game? After YOU just screwed up?
  11. Gotta love that BOTH of the GOP front-runners have never held a political office in their life. Yeah, I know, people like the idea of an "outsider" who's not bought and sold like the other politicians. But the fact is, electing Carson or Trump would be the equivalent of an NFL team taking a player with the #1 overall pick who never played a down of football in high school or college. "Well no, we don't have any proof that he would be good at football. But we LOVE his attitude!" Luckily for all of us, we will never have to experience a Ben Carson or Donald Trump presidency.
  12. Picked him up after waivers ran yesterday in both my 10 and 12 teamers. As soon I took him in one league I got a text from another owner telling me it was a great pickup and he's so mad he didn't realize he was out there. This may be the case in more leagues than one would think... Been rolling with Dalton, but he plays at Denver week 16.
  13. Done. I'm benching him for Winston.Bad matchup for Indy on the road. TB will likely get slaughtered in Atl and I see some garbage points for Winston. That takes some serious b***s, good luck!
  14. Bradford is trying to emulate what Mariota is doing? In what way? Kapernick is a horrible QB. I don't care if he can run or not. For all Bradford's flaws, he is still better than Kaepernick.
  15. He couldn't even get a shoutout in the Weekly Upgrades/Downgrades 100+ yards and 2 TDs just doesn't satisfy anyone when it's from a 135-pound "backup" RB.
  16. Haha I knew it was coming - from the Week 8 upgrades/downgrades RB Holding Steady - RB Christine Michael, DAL - Michael's opportunity came in the form of a Joseph Randle injury and Darren McFadden took it. The bye week hype amounted to nothing in Week 7. Michael is still more than capable and at least the Cowboys running game is on track, and with Joseph Randle missing time, Michael is a Darren McFadden injury away from being the #1 back. Meanwhile, Woodhead piles up over 100 yards and 2 TDs and doesn't even get a shout out.
  17. Yesterday around 7:00 I get a text from my fantasy nemesis: "Danny Woodhead over TJ Yeldon? Did you forget how to play fantasy football?" 30 seconds later... "You're a genius" A half hour later.... "And another TD. You're a guru."
  18. Bradford is the only first round bust at QB, that doesn't face any heat from his team's fan-base, in fact they have always and continue to make excuses for him. For a terrible QB (ETA: "terrible is probably too harsh, damn now I'm making excuses for him) he sure lives a charmed life from the viewpoint of not facing the ire of his teams' fans like all other bust QBs have. Ummmm...not facing the ire of his team's fans? How many decades has it been since you've spent time in the Philadelphia area?
  19. Yep this^^. I grabbed him off waivers for a $0 bid last week in a FF league filled with Vikings fans, and started him in place of John Brown his week. Dude I beat using Diggs is a huge Vikings fan. This forum rules. x3! This forum is great for finding out about guys a week before everyone else does. Was happily surprised I was able to snag him in both of the leagues I tried for him in. Didn't have high waiver priority in either. Was hurting for WRs in one PPR league where you start 3 WRs and a flex, had Beckham but then totally crapped the bed on Andre Johnson and Charles Johnson. Flipped Gates and Dion Lewis for JULIO last week, and added Diggs. Now have Julio, Beckham, and Diggs at WR with Gronk at TE
  20. This is genuinely my biggest concern about the state of this team right now. One of the reasons I was so high on the Kelly hiring was the offensive creativity he brought to the table. He reminded me of a mad scientist at Oregon - always tinkering, tweaking, trying something new - and you could see that same sort of attitude in the Eagles in year 1 of his tenure. That's completely gone now. I thought when he got the GM title and brought in his own guys it'd be back to Mad Scientist mode, but instead it's gone from the most creative offense in the NFL to its least creative. Either it's because NFL HCs and DCs have made adjustments and Chip hasn't figured out how to counter-adjust, or it's because his skill-position guys are so limited that Chip's been forced to dumb the playcalling down almost to high-school levels to get it to work at all. I'm not sure which explanation is more damning. Was kind of dissapointing to hear Chip talk on WIP this morning...."now that you're at the bye week, are you looking at shaking things up and making any big changes?" "No." He seems thoroughly convinced that the plan is perfect, it's just a matter of his WRs, O-line, or whoever not executing said perfect plan. I really wish they had drafted Allen Robinson over Matthews like I wanted. (PSU alum) Every week is another TD for ARob and a few more drops for Matthews.
  21. I think he should. To play as well as he has, for as long as he has, with his SIZE, is just incredible. It's one thing to be Megatron at 35 and still be able to grab jump balls because you're 6 foot 5, but to be this good at his age and size is quite an accomplishment IMO. I'm only 33, but I've never seen anything like it.
  22. Two weeks ago they were the laughingstock of the league, now they're overrated? By whom exactly? Surely not Eagles fans. We know what we have.
  23. Exactly. It's admitting a mistake and settling for average. It would be like bring Foles back. For what? He's already proven to be average. Is that what we're striving for? Well, if Bradford was a mistake then that's exactly what they should do. These guys are already getting paid what they're getting paid, so you should put the best players out there. Foles is irrelevant. If Sanchez gives them a better chance to win, he should be the starter. Now, I understand if you still think Bradford just needs more time to improve. I hope that's the case, but Bradford has done NOTHING to seal up the starting job so far this season. How many more picks does he need to throw in the endzone for them to give Sanchez a shot and see what he can do? We saw what Sanchez can do. He's not improving. If we're hoping to go .500, then get Sanchez in there. If we're hoping to make the playoffs, see if Bradford keeps improving. Bradford, right now, is equal to Sanchez. If he cuts down on the red zone mistakes, he's way better. Having Sanchez be the QB is like having Cooper be the WR1. Unless Jordan Matthews works out his drops issue, we aren't going anywhere. Because Riley Cooper is what he is. Sanchez is Cooper. Average and not getting better. For this team to have a chance at winning a playoff game or two, Matthews has to become the number one he shows flashes of being from time to time. And Bradford has to keep getting more comfortable and make better decisions in the red zone. I'm not ready to write the season off yet. Switching to Sanchez would be doing that. This team has won 3 out of 4. Even discussing this is insane. Agree to disagree I guess. You see putting in Sanchez as giving up. To me, moving to Sanchez would signal they are trying to win games and not just give Bradford more "evaluation" games to see what he's capable of. Again, I sure hope Bradford improves. But let's be real, at no point last season did Mark Sanchez look as bad as Bradford has this season. Are you out of your mind?? It doesn't matter how bad someone has looked, if you win 3 of 4, and have 1000 yards of offense over the last 2 games (without monstar RB stats), you don't put your backup QB in. Eagles fans have reached a new low if you really think now is the time to start Sanchez, c'mon man you don't honestly believe that. How about Sanchez' 10 for 20 game? Or his 0 TD/2INT game? We know QBs often unnecessarily take the praise/blame for how a team is doing, but Bradford is faced with a worse Oline this year, worse receivers, TONS of dropped balls that are thrown into the receivers hands, yet still has a better td/int ration and completion percentage then Sanchez had last year. And this is all during his first 6 games in 2 years. I don't think Sam has been great but there is zero chance we should even consider going to Sanchez at this point with the streak we are on. Do I want the Eagles to have to start Sanchez? No. I'd be interested to see if he does better or worse with this team, though. Like I said, I was a big supporter of the Bradford move from the start. I'm a homer and always an optimist when it comes to the Eagles (for some reason) It's just been really painful to watch this offense. They look like they need to go to some high school practices this week and learn the fundamentals on how to run an offensive play. Anyway, let's hope they keep the wins coming and the offense can form something that resembles a starting unit.
