  1. 12-team ($150 entry + $1 for every player acquired throughout the season) 40% 1st 25% 2nd 10% 3rd 5% 4th 5% for Scoring Title (Most Pts. Regular Season) 5% for each division winner (3 Divs) Final Pot is everything (minus league site fee and $10 for "trophy" sticker - Our trophy is a real helmet that passes between champs)
  2. I think I would roll with Brady over Cousins. I've also got AZ defense so I think I'm just going to plug in Cousins and hope my defense can hold Rodgers to last week's Oakland game type performance.
  3. Anyone rolling with cousins tonight over someone like, ahem, Rodgers?!? Rodgers could only muster up 12 points for me last week @ oakland and even though AZ is missing Honey Badger, that defense is much better than OAK.
  4. Rodgers plays on the road against Arizona and has not been good. I can see benching Rodgers for almost anyone. If you are in your SB, he wont win anyone theirs. 187 yards and 1 TDs and 1 pick. Because his WRs suck and so does his run game and he barely throws for TDs anymore and his yardage is mediocre at best. Cousins will do better than that. I'm in the same boat (assuming I am able to get Cousins tomorrow night... I have Rodgers). Another thing to consider is Philly's fast tempo offense. Their TOP is usually very low which means WAS should have the ball plenty. The more TOP, the more opportunity to score fantasy points. If I land Cousins, right now I'm 70/30 leaning his way over Rodgers.
  5. I'm in the same boat, but I think I'm going Cam. If Rivers goes off, at least you know Cam has the potential (and the matchup) to go off as well. If Rivers puts up a mediocre performance (like the last time they played DEN @ SD), then you won't have to stew for the next 3 days until Sunday. Also, in my situation, I've got Keenan and possibly Mathews going tonight, so I don't want to be too heavily vested in SD for this semi-final matchup. Good luck either way!
  6. Seemed to me like Crabtree attempted to push off because he was already being held. Kaepernick played more than well enough to win the Superbowl in just his 10th start, and he was also spectacular in his prior 2 post-season stats. His final post-season stats were 61.3% CMP, 798 passing yards, 9.98 YPA, 4 passing TDs, 2 INT, and he added 264 yards rushing on 25 attempts (10.6 YPC), and another 3 rushing TDs. So imo, any report by the media saying Kaepernick is dominant is more accurate than any report saying he isn't. You're thinking of a different play. I'm talking about an incompletion on 2nd down. We'll see next year. His stat line for yesterday was actually more impressive than it seemed while watching the game. Now that DCs have a much better sampling of his skill set, he won't be surprising anyone anymore (not that Seattle had even a minute problem with him). Does that also apply to Russell Wilson?What do you think?I think it's just something that people say as if it's valid, when in reality it's not. Do you have any examples of QBs that failed in their second seasons after successful rookie seasons because opposing DCs had them figured out?There are a lot of examples of QB's who regressed their 2nd year but I don't agree with the 'figured them out' claim - except maybe for Vince Young.I agree that some do regress in their second year and maybe Kaep and/or Wilson will, but like you say it won't be because they were figured out (if not in theory all QBs would). I probably wouldn't even agree with Young being "figured out" as he was more just a headcase - but perhaps due to his inconsistent (to be nice) passing skills you may be right on that.Its game planning more than figuring out. He was an unknown quantity for much of the season. The more tape there is of a player, obviously the more Ds can study. I'd say of the two, Kaep will struggle more with Ds adjusting to him because Wilson is better at progressions. A lot of people have mentioned how he's not the greatest at anticipating open WRs and uses his ultimate cannon to overcome that.Kaep seemed to really lock onto Crabtree and VD. With the exception of the Saints and Seahawks he completed ~60% of his passes to them.He also had great chemistry with Manningham and Williams before they went down with injuries.
  7. And they would've been 11 yards away without a questionable uncalled push off on Crabtree. He's got a lot of potential, but the way he played in a lot of the game showed how/why the reports of his dominance were premature. He has a lot of seasoning to go through before he can be dominant. Next year he won't be such an unknown and teams will be better prepared, he needs to be better prepared. As the #1 going into camp, he should have all the time he needs to improve, if he has the room for it in his noggin. He's a smart guy, but who knows how he'll handle the pressure.

ETA: Well, this is Kaep's thread after all... Besides, teams can have as much tape as they want on someone, the great ones overcome it. We'll find out in 7 short months...
  8. You must have missed the NE game a few weeks ago? SEA was undefeated at home this season so I don't think a probowl team would have won there :semi-sarcasm:And not sure what you mean about the class comment? I assume you're referring to the taunting penalty? That's inexperience (not classless). Talking junk is all part of the game. Remove the spike part of the exchange and you'd have a normal exchange between a WR and DB
  9. Norcal did say he can do math.I'm well aware Tannehill's stats aren't as good as Kaep's this year. Tannehill is also a rookie, not a 2nd year player. He played QB how many games in college? A season and a half? He has a lot to learn. He also plays on a team that had one of the worst offenses in the league the previous year. His #1 WR is Brian Hartline. Come see me in 2-3 years and let's see who the better QB is.Wasn't Tannehill the unquestionable starter throughout training camp (serious question as I don't follow the Dolphins closely). There is a big difference between someone in Tannehill's position vs. someone thrown into the starting gig mid-season, and a couple months before the post-season, 2nd year or not. This would actually hurt your argument in comparing Tannehill vs. Kaep (i.e. Kaep was able to perform just as well or better despite not having a full off-season camp as the bonifide starting QB).I don't think he was the unquestioned starter throughout training camp. I think they made that decision sometime during the preseason, but not from the get go. Kaep's had 2 whole training camps, an entire offseason, and a full year to take everything in. I would definitely not say his situation is harder than Tannehill's. You didn't even address the personnel difference.So now you want to highlight the personnel difference, but you want to overlook it when you try to compare Alex vs. GB with Kaep vs. GB ? C'mon maaaan :michaelirvingvoice:What are the major changes? Manningham is out. As I said, Kaep can blame himself for that, since he's the one that double pumped a left him out to dry. Kyle Williams? Kendall Hunter? They're backups. These are not game altering personnel changes. It'd be a different story if he didn't have Gore/Davis/Crabtree (the 3 biggest weapons on offense). Green Bay has had injuries too. A Rod had a full strength Greg Jennings in Week 1, not one that is coming off hernia repair surgery. You can't say that either side has any really key players out. You're just making excuses for Kaep.I'm not making excuses for anyone. I'm merely pointing out inconsistencies with your comparisons. I agree that Smith was done dirty, but after listening to weeks and weeks of sports talk on this topic alone ad nauseam, I'm in the camp of "coaching staff and management know more than us arm chair quarterbacks and that's why they pay them the big bucks". Time to move on.You keep holding grudges... meanwhile, I'm going to remain f-ing stoked for Saturday night football where I'll be in those stands hoping for Kaep's SUCCESS, instead of anxiously waiting for the possibility of posting "I told ya so" on Sunday morning.

  12. The only counter to this I'd give you is that Gore hasn't had a 100 yard game since Kaep took over. In Smith's starts this year Gore has had about a 5.4 ypa. Under Kaep, it's been about 4.1 ypa. It's wierd because a deeper passing threat and mobile QB should open things up for the RB, but in this case it hasn't. I had a theory that Kaep brought so much to the running game that teams were focused even more so to stop the 49ers running game. Could just be Gore getting tired too I guess.Having multiple TD pass plays of ~25+ yards will get that rushing yardage down. :shrug:If Kaep's presence/abilities is keeping Gore fresh (i.e. rushing yardage down), then I'm all for that. We'll need him for the post season.But not on a YPA basis. His averages are significantly down. I dont think its an issue other than gore possibly tiring out. He did the same thing last year only worse.I think James makes the perfect COP back then. I think after his performance in NE, he's earned the trust of the coaching staff.

  14. Of course I can say this now, but I'd say Kaep gets a pass on those fumbles (1 of which was Goodwin's fault, IMO) considering this was really his first NFL start dealing with those kinds of weather conditions. Was Kaep wearing the glove on his non-throwing hand the whole game? I coulda swore he was glove-less until at least halftime.By the way, are you the same "butcher boy" that called into KNBR this morning?
  15. His first reads are no longer open? I'm not too worried about the regression (it was expected). Now we get to see how he is able to rebound and adjust his game through what is obviously better prepared opponents from having more tape to study.I just hope to goodness that Vic Fangio dials up the heat on Sunday night, instead of selling out for the pass and rushing only 3. Brady will eat SF up alive if they stick with that gameplan.Brady kills the blitz. SF absolutely has to continue getting pressure with 4 guys. It's worked against the saints twice, NYG twice (last year), GB and DET (SF stayed in nickel the entire time during these games). If SF has to start blitzing they will be in big trouble.Good point. The key to this game will be the Smith Brothers. If they neutralize them all day, then it's going to be a long cold night.
