Yep, Flynn and Brian Brohm - both drafted last year.

But the Pats are the same...

There is a reason why Cassel is our Number 1 QB atm.

But, I am going to leave that here and see how Cassel does this weekend.

He is up against a weak Secondary and has had 2 weeks with Randy and they have been working closely together.

Glad we have K O'C if it goes wrong. And unless we end up 2-5 Matt will stay as QB until we are out it.

Clue that the office pool site is junk:

Nice also of them to put everyones e-mails addresses on public display, makes me even more glad that I signed up through Gmail. Oh, and we're all 108 years old apparently. :D

On a different subject I can't believe that the Patriots and Colts (in a must-win game IMO) are both only 3.5pt favourites this week. Both with the benefit of bye weeks heading to weaker opposition, they *should* both win you would think.

Off to mess up my fantasy team. Wish me luck, Paul. ;)

I've picked the Pats to lose. Either way, I'll be happy that way!

Whether you like Belichick or not his past history has shown him to be well capable of at least stalling Buffalo's high-powered no-huddle offence of the early 90s and the Rams' greatest show on turf. Given two weeks to prepare for J.T. O'Sullivan I don't see San Fran scoring in double figures unless they get some help from their defence or special teams.

saxoneagle 03-10-2008 04:26 PM

It will be either 20-17 or 24-17 either way...

What do we know about the Dallas QB reserves? I admit ignorance here although I do recall a few cameo roles for him towards the end of last season in games that were already won.

pauldrulez 03-10-2008 05:55 PM

Just quickly, for next year.

With the Picks/Survival/Fantasy and everything.

I think we should have these:
Yahoo Fantasy league
Yahoo Survival League (From week 1)
Yahoo Survival League (From week 9)
Yahoo Picks League
Yahoo Picks League with the Spread.

That should please Ben. ;)

Although so far I am massively preferring the Fox league.

jazman 03-10-2008 05:57 PM

I have not signed up to anything Yahoo. I thank you.

pauldrulez 03-10-2008 06:15 PM

Brad Johnson isn't it? As in the guy who was the starting QB for the winning team in Super Bowl XXXVII.

pauldrulez 03-10-2008 06:30 PM

1st choice ... 2nd choice

NFC:
Arizona Cardinals: Kurt Warner ... Matt Leinart

I'm happy to do 2 fantasy leagues, a survival league and a picks league - don't know why we need one with and without the spread though...

If you are quoting Brady as the Pats #1 QB then Joe Flacco is not the Ravens #1. He's only #1 due to injury to the first choice and illness to the second. On the basis you have Cassel as #2, Flacco would be a #3.

And Brooks Bollinger, I think.

pauldrulez 03-10-2008 08:38 PM

Fair enough then Saxon.

K O'C as the reserve.

You could appreciate the effort ;)

And doing one with the spread can make it harder as well. It also adds variety to it and means you have to be able to guess the score as well.

saxoneagle 03-10-2008 09:14 PM

Well done, Paul. We appreciate your effort.

:p

saxoneagle 03-10-2008 09:53 PM

Chris Cooley wants to play in London

pauldrulez 03-10-2008 10:31 PM

As long as he doesnt expose himself on the field it would be great.

Pats - Redskins would be a great game next year.

pauldrulez 03-10-2008 10:39 PM

Looking at the 32 backups, there arent many who I would be hugely confident at having walking into the Pats team ahead of Cassel.

I also have Vince Young even though he is injured, but I would love Kerry Collins for this year.

Tarvaris ;)

Damon Huard, that would be nice for history purposes ;)

In all honesty, Cassel has had one bad game out of 2 3/4 games. When the whole team especially the OL were awful. Apart from the Special Teams we were a disgrace.

Cassel done what was needed against the Chiefs and the Jets and it is up to the Runners and the WRs to make it happen. And hopefully Ellis Hobbs the 3rd can make it happen again.
