    Zeke is low-key faded....

    We all can probably use a little humor, and this one is pretty funny. Apparently Zeke was high as a kite, and forgot that he was still live-streaming.
  2. Of course, Covid-19 issues aside, there is an impending storm a brewin' over protests (particularly kneeling) during the national anthem. At this point, I think that we can all agree that mass-kneeling by players/teams is a foregone conclusion this season. We must also understand that, right or wrong, this activity is excessively repugnant to millions of their fans who buy the tickets/gear/TV packages/etc. Now, this could all be avoided with a little compromise (like choosing ANY other time to protest), and this could possibly also set a positive national precedent on resolving conflicts and issues, but battle lines have been drawn and nobody seems willing to budge. So, is it possible that the NFL, by alienating so much of their base in changing their stance on this issue, could not only lose massive proceeds but possibly be signing their own death certificate by wading into the turbulence? Seems far-fetched, I know....but after seeing things that I never dreamed that I would over the last month, nothing seems too crazy to consider anymore.

    Zeke tests positive for Coronavirus

    Unfortunately, barring a miracle from above (which is certainly possible), Covid-19 will be around as long as mankind is. Hopefully, effective treatments will be discovered or, better yet, an effective vaccine. Until then, we are stuck with it. Let's just be thankful that it doesn't impact children in the same manner as the elderly. Will be interesting to see who the other Cowboy is who is Covid-positive. Wouldn't surprise me one bit if it was Dak. They have been spending a lot of time together, including at a party together that was scrutinized by many.
  4. Mass kneeling this year by NFL players during the anthem is a given at this point. 2 things will be particularly interesting to see: 1) How much (if any) revenue will it cost the league in disgruntled fans, especially in light of a tweet by President Trump declaring that he will not be watching the NFL this year if kneeling ensues. 2) Will Jerry Jones cave to the pressures and allow "his" Cowboys to kneel, or be a maverick and stick to his guns.
  5. Have to admit that you nailed it. That was some kinda quick 180. In two days he went from "I will never agree with someone disrespecting our flag by kneeling during the national anthem" to "This is not an issue about the American flag" https://news.yahoo.com/new-orleans-saints-drew-brees-donald-trump-protests-national-anthem-not-about-flag-022510589.html
  6. Straw-man Firstly, it's not just property being damaged. Thus far, over 300 police officers have been injured, and two have lost their life. Secondly, although it may sound cliche or overly-simplistic, two wrongs never make a right.....at least not in a civilized society.
  7. https://sports.yahoo.com/fury-saints-ace-brees-criticises-nfl-kneeling-protests-222543091--nfl.html Not here to stir up a stink, as I hope that we can all agree that what happened to George Floyd was horrendous, as has been the violence and destruction that has occurred in America since. However, Drew Brees is not only an important fantasy player, but one of the "faces" of the NFL. It is his opinion/conviction that kneeling during the National Anthem, regardless of the stated cause, is disrespectful to our flag, nation, and veterans. He is currently getting ripped a new one, including by his own teammates.....including Michael Thomas. This development, of course, could plausibly have an impact on fantasy teams if a rift develops or the relationship deteriorates. Brees has always been lauded as one of the NFL's "good guys"....but that has not exempted him from the firestorm. It will be interesting to see if he rolls over under pressure, or stands pat with his opinion.

    Super Bowl 54: Chiefs vs. 49ers

    Damien Williams is an enigma. He can be very productive in this offense, both as a runner and receiver, as he proved again tonight against a very tough SF D with 21 touches for 133 yards and 2 TD's. I thought Reid was "saving McCoy for the post-season?? Apparently not....he must be done. Had Shady never been brought in this year, I still believe that Williams could have returned excellent FF value. Although Shady was brought in after my redrafts, the Williams pick still burned me good....but the talent is there. Despite the heartburn, if nothing changes in the KC backfield, I will probably still be looking to draft him again next year if he falls into the early-mid 3rd...and cuff him to Darwin later, who, despite his minimal usage during his rookie season, could still offer big upside in that offense if he proves able to pass-block this off-season, and should he be given sufficient touches in the advent of a Williams injury or a decision by Reid to showcase him. Lastly, although obviously a fan, Mahomie was not very good tonight....but did just enough late to get the victory. Damien Williams should have been the MVP in my opinion. Great game.....esp following last years garbage SB. Congrats Chief fans....and Andy Reid.

    A truly great idea: Give back to fantasy

    I would really like to.....but during the Festivus holiday, on behalf of my family members, friends and coworkers, already donated all my available charitable money to The Human Fund.

    Packers at Vikings: In-Game Discussion

    I feel you, Mike. That's friggin' rough......for crying out loud. That dropped TD by Adams at the end of the 1st half cost me a game. Lost by 4 points. He catches that pass 9 times outta 10.

    What's the thoughts on David Montgomery?

    Congratulations to Axe on winning our $25 bet. DMont, indeed, will not finish top12. Flirted around with top 20 off and on, but simply couldn't get it done, plain and simple. No excuses necessary. As a man of my word, I will pay you your winnings....simply PM me your paypal address. Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.

    All the sudden the GB defense is looking like the 85 Bears.

    In his defense, the blocking has been horrid. LaDarius Smith is 3 yards in the backfield every play.
