Monday Nightmare: How is it Eli again?

No matter what I do with Eli Manning, he is going to ruin my fantasy team. Start him like I did last week, and he kills me. Bench him in favor of Rex Grossman this week, and he kills me. Although the biggest failure is in my own hands for starting Grossman.

‘Playbook’ Monday notebook: Week 3

After going through Sunday’s game tape from Week 3, here are a few things we noticed.

Britt officially done for the year

Kenny Britt is officially out for the year, which could open opportunities for a trio of Titans receivers.

Origin of Bills’ 3-0 start dates back to dismal 2010

If you didn’t believe it already, believe it now: The Buffalo Bills are all growns up.

Reid hasn’t decided on Eagles’ backup to Vick

About 24 hours after the Eagles were downed at home by the Giants, coach Andy Reid took the podium Monday to reveal QB Michael Vick does not have a broken non-throwing hand like originally diagnosed.

Eagles’ O-line needs to take its share of blame

Michael Vick, we get it. You’re frustrated. We understand why, too.

Clarity on Peyton Manning’s status hard to find

The cameras on Sunday night showed Colts QB Peyton Manning up in the coaches’ booth during the team’s loss to the Steelers , and that’s a sight fans in Indianapolis should get used to for the rest of the year. Or is it?

Digging deep for good WR value

Going beyond the surface stats, Jason Smith says there are values to be found at the wide receiver position.

Three and out: Vick has a contusion, not a fracture

Michael Vick’s hand injury may not be as bad as initially feared, but there is no guarantee he play in Week 4.

First and 10: Vick taking his licks

Michael Vick keeps taking a beating, and he’s not happy about it. The Philadelphia Eagles quarterback suffered a broken right hand during Sunday’s 29-16 loss to the New York Giants.

Sunday night QB: Bills cash in on turnovers

With eight televisions tuned in to every game, we don’t miss much. Before we spend hours breaking down each game on coaching tape Monday, here’s what we noticed live on Sunday.

Dolphins starting RG Vernon Carey left Sunday’s game against the Browns during the first quarter with what appears to be a right arm or shoulder injury.

Fantasy Feedback: Week 3

He’s not yet a high-yardage play, but Dane Sanzenbacher is becoming Jay Cutler’s favorite target amongst receivers. Last week, he was first among Bears receivers with three catches. This week, he has four so far. It’s not enough to make him a consistent start, but it’s worth keeping an eye on. – MG Proving you never can tell from week-to-week, Ryan Grant has been resurgent today, rushing for 85 yards on 10 carries. James Starks has struggled with 12 yards on nine carries. – MG Michael Turner has been a non-factor in the first half, carrying just seven times for nine yards. That has mirrored the Falcons’ offensive struggle as a whole. – MG Lost amid all the (well-deserved) Torrey Smith hoopla, Ray Rice has put together […]

NFL Network analyst Jamie Dukes had the (mis)fortune of lining up opposite Eagles defensive linemen Reggie White and Jerome Brown, both of whom are featured in Thursday’s episode of “A Football Life.”

Things get heated when Jamie Dukes and Tom Waddle go head-to-head on a numver hot topics, including Jay Cutler‘s reliability standing behind a shaky offensive line, and which team will remain undefeated the longest.
