Godless NFL thread.

My Hogs are 1-3.  I never want to talk about football again until the subject is how quickly John L. Smith can be fired as the Razorbacks’ coach.

But I will endure.  Sadly, the Raiders are 0-2 and last week all of my picks failed.

Last week:

My player to watch was Darren McFadden, who failed to tear up the Miami Dolphins’ defense.  He had 22 yards on 11 carries.  Ugh.

Upset pick, I had the Lions beating the 49ers.  San Fran took the game 27-19.  This is why I’m not on ESPN.  Then again, I’m 1-1 on the year with upset picks, and if you can break even picking teams that are supposed to lose, I guess you’re doing ok.  😛

This week:

Player of the week: Matthew Stafford.  The Lions will go to the air early and often and the Titans don’t have the secondary to slow him down.

Upset pick:  I’m looking at the Colts vs. the Jaguars and see the Colts favored by 3.  That’s really, really tempting.  But no, I’m going with the Bengels to upset the Redskins.

Fantasy:

My fantasy line up stays the same (and, in my other league, Tebow remains at the ass-end of the bench where he belongs).  I’m 2-0 on the year so far, but Cam Newton really sucked it up this week.  I need big games from Shonn Green and Darren McFadden.  I would say I need a big game from Mike Wallace, but the Steelers are playing the Raiders this week and I need him to drop every pass that comes his way.

QB – Cam Newton (CAR)
RB – Darren McFadden (OAK)
RB – Shonn Green (NYJ)
WR- AJ Green (CIN)
WR – Mike Wallace (PIT)
TE – Tony Gonzalez (ATL)
FLEX – Titus Young (DET WR)
D/ST – Chicago Bears
K – Sebastian Janikowski (OAK)

Points for discussion:

Which 0-2 teams will get back above .500 before the end of the season?  Will they make the playoffs?

Conversely, which 2-0 team will fold like origami the rest of the year?
