    Week 12 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders

    by  • November 23, 2008 • Start or Sit • 0 Comments

    I don’t even know why I am awake right now at 6 a.m. on Sunday. Actually, that’s a lie. I’m awake right now because I am infused with truck stop coffee, the kind of coffee that fills you with enough energy to punch a wall with your head … twice. Needless to say, it’s...

    Week 9 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders

    by  • October 31, 2008 • Start or Sit • 3 Comments

    One of my fantasy football teams has done remarkably well through the first half of the season. After starting 5-0, I traded away some of my starters for underperforming stars that I believed would lead me to victory in the second half. As of this week, I have assembled what I would call the...

My favorite starts are Willis McGahee against Oakland and Chris Johnson against the Colts but even Cedric Benson might break 100 yards this week. Cedric Benson — let that sink...

    Editor’s Note: This week might be the lowest point in the life de Chadam. I’m pretty sure I walked in on him and Terrell Owens having a group cry. He’s really gone off the deep end. If you like what he puts out there this week or just want to kick a man while...

    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....
