Monday Nightmare: Where Geno outscores Matty Ice

Monday Nightmare: Almost Jimmy, almost

Allow me to pull back the curtain a little bit. When we do projections for the Monday show, if I need a guy to get me a certain number of points that night, I will project that. This, of course, explains why I had Jimmy Graham tabbed for 26.80 points against the Dolphins on Monday night. And to be honest, that number wasn’t so outlandish. It puts him in the Tony Gonzalez category for Week 4 and it was close to what Graham did on Monday.

Fantasy Post Mortem: This is why you start Calvin Johnson

You’ve heard this before, but this is why you always play your studs. Calvin Johnson has led the world this season in being tackled at the 1-yard line. No, seriously. Elias passed along this note before the start of NFL Fantasy Live on Sunday which said Megatron had been tackled at the 1-yard line after four of his catches. And each time, the Lions ran the ball in each time, and did not go to Johnson.

Mike Smith: Atlanta Falcons’ playoff woes not on Matt Ryan

Mike Smith said on “NFL AM” the Falcons playoff failures were a team effort.

Players keen on winning share of Pro Bowl stakes

While the Pro Bowl is all about having a good time and putting on a good show, don’t think for a second that getting that winner’s share (aproximately, $50,000 for the winning team and $25,000 for the losers, according to the players) isn’t on everyone’s mind.

Data Points: Gonzo closing in on T.O.

Eagles fans will be rooting hard this weekend against the Falcons — their team’s opponent on Sunday. But they may cheer for Atlanta TE Tony Gonzalez if he catches at least five passes. That will move Gonzalez past Terrell Owens – not a fan favorite in Philly — for fifth place on the all-time NFL receptions list.

Shannon Sharpe was a seventh-round draft choice in 1990 from Savannah State who would eventually become a three-time Super Bowl champion with the Broncos and Ravens. Even more significant is that Sharpe was one of the first to represent the current breed of NFL tight ends.

Data Points: Gates produces big plays

Tight end is addressed in today’s Player 2K debate, and the two players debated as the best at their profession in the 2000s — Tony Gonzalez and Antonio Gates — are tough to argue with.

It wouldn’t be a salute to America’s finest here at the NFL if we didn’t take a moment to remember someone who put the NFL a distant second behind his love of country: Pat Tillman.
