Fantasy Post Mortem: What if RG3 doesn’t play?

For the majority of the season, I have admonished fantasy enthusiasts for having too many good quarterbacks. Trade one! I often decried. They can’t score fantasy points for you from the bench.

The expression I search for right now is “hoist on my own petard.”

It’s week 13 and the playoff picture is becoming clearer, as the Falcons, Patriots, Texans, and Broncos all clinched a playoff appearance. What isn’t becoming clearer is the quarterback situation in New York. Or how in the world Adrian Peterson healed from his ACL surgery so quickly and continues to ravage opposing defenses.

Madden curse watch Week 8: Seattle Seahawks at Detroit Lions

Historically, players who are featured on the cover of the “Madden NFL” franchise experience significant drops in their offensive production.

In case you missed it, Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman appointed himself “Optimus Prime” in advance of the team’s road trip to Detroit. Megatron is unfazed. Wonder whose side this guy is on? Enough talk. Let’s get to the game. ————————————————————————————————————————————– FIRST QUARTER ————————————————————————————————————————————– The Lions win the toss and their first drive results in a punt. The Seahawks respond with a field goal. Nothing exciting there. On Detroit’s 2nd possession, Matthew Stafford leads the squad […]

Billick: Explaining choice of Wilson harder than making it

NFL analyst Brian Billick gives his perspective on Seattle choosing Wilson over Flynn.

Did Pete Carroll make the right move with Russell Wilson?

There wasn’t outrageous debate in the upper Northwest over who should be the Seattle Seahawks’ starting quarterback in 2012.

Russell Wilson will start against the Raiders (in the preseason finale) and will start the first week of the regular season,” Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said during a conference call on Sunday. “He is so prepared, he does not seem like a first-year quarterback.”
