    Dude… Tyler Thigpen

    by  • November 4, 2008 • Culture • 1 Comment

    Yeah, I said it. Tyler Thigpen. It was popular to hate on him when he first got the start in Kansas City. We all expected Daunte Culpepper to sign with the Chiefs and immediately take Thigpen’s job away. Luckily for Thigpen, Culpepper knew he was going to be able to crush Dan Orlovsky’s thumb...

    Dude… Santana Moss

    by  • October 28, 2008 • Culture • 4 Comments

    I think he secretly held a grudge that we didn’t pick him earlier in the season when he was looking like a champion. To prove his point, Santana Moss went off in Week 8 against the Lions and finally got his time in the spotlight here at Fools. Moss caught nine passes for 140...

    Dude… Steven Jackson

    by  • October 20, 2008 • Culture • 0 Comments

    I usually try to stray from the obvious guys, but Jackson’s performance yesterday is too hard to ignore. Even rated as a top-five running back going into the season, Jackson had a lot of hate from fantasy analysts this preseason (including the Fools). He finally had his breakout day against…my Cowboys. *sigh* While he...

    Foolish Thoughts on Week 6: Last-second nonsense

    by  • October 14, 2008 • Culture, News • 1 Comment

    Who is the better Manning now? I think Peyton Manning put ex-lax in his brother’s Gatorade this week. It was time to shut up the critics. Peyton gets three touchdowns; Eli gets three picks. At least in fantasy, it looks like Peyton may have reclaimed his top spot on the Manning mantel for now....

    Dude… Braylon Edwards

    by  • October 13, 2008 • Culture • 0 Comments

    This week’s “Dude…” award was a tough call. Plenty of surprising performances tempted our hand, but in the end, you have to give it to the guy some people considered dropping last week, Braylon Edwards. The Cleveland Browns wide receiver has had a slooooow start against some of the tougher defenses in the league...

    Dude… DeAngelo Williams

    by  • October 6, 2008 • Culture • 0 Comments

    The running back we all doubted in Carolina stepped up big against the Chiefs. No, it’s not the biggest accomplishment in life to run over the Chiefs defense, but Williams did it in style AND takes home the Dude… award this week because of it — mostly because we doubted him. Unfortunately for all...

    Dude… Brett Favre and Laveranues Coles

    by  • September 30, 2008 • Culture • 0 Comments

    After a poor showing on Monday night against the Chargers, Brett Favre came up big in Week 4 with a six touchdown performance against the Arizona Cardinals. The prototypical gunslinger quarterback hit 24 of his 34 pass attempts for 289 yards. The six TDs was a career high for the veteran, 38-year-old QB. He...
