Nat Coombs is now my facebook friend. You'd never get Halling doing that!

elliott 06-12-2007 06:33 PM

I've just been informed that Cam Cam wasn't calling the plays on Sunday against the Jets.

Guess who was!!!

The offensive genius, your friend and mine, Mike Mularky.

No wonder it sucked so bad.

Grim Reaper 06-12-2007 07:10 PM

So which freak result is it to be? Jets beating New England or Miami. You just know one of them will do it. That's the way this sport works.

Anyone here do the Fantasy on Sky Sports?

Thought I'd done well last week what with having LT and a few other decent performances but yet again I ranked in the 4000s.

How the hell do people get scores of 120+???

It's not like I pick dumbos - regularly have Randy Moss, LT, Houshmanzadeh, Minnesota defence (best one) and a steady kicker in Rob Bironas, yet just once got over 100.

Which magical players am I overlooking for heaven's sake

(Note: Finally remembered to make space for Adrian Peterson this week, maybe that will help)

Oh good grief.

(I so badly want the bash smiley back at this moment. However, for the greater good I will do without it.)

I've not tried it. Keep meaning to, and then hope for a lucky week and a nice prize.

Don't they just give you a list of all the top points scorers for the previous week? Put together the best team you can based on last weeks performance and see who you should've picked ;)

saxoneagle 06-12-2007 11:59 PM

I hate NFL Network :grrr: :veryangry

Good win for Skins but looks like Campbell is out for the season :(

Tried that at various ponts but it just don't work, hence replacing Brady with Kitna; having Rob Bironas as my permanent kicker now SINCE he got about 30 points one week etc.

Even Moss has been quiet since I picked him.

Kind of shutting the door after the horse has bolted.

Seem to be able to always hit 90ish now which usally has me beating most of the 8 Sky pundits......but still has me about 4000th overall!!!

Where has it gone?

Why has it gone?

I loved that.

All the good ones have gone (w@nker sign which lasted about a fortnight; the puking one of 2000/01 and now this!!! :moo: )

Strathclyde Eagle 09-12-2007 09:31 AM

I think it went because it was all Baldy used to post.

Grim Reaper 09-12-2007 12:03 PM

One poster out of 15000 has caused this tragedy????

(Insert bash smiley here!!)

Grim Reaper 09-12-2007 12:31 PM

Right, for those of you who bet guys, I've unearthed a beauty.

Thomas Jones o65.5 yards v Cleveland with bwin.com

Cleveland one of the worst rush defences in the league

Jets been using Jopnes increasingly of late and have won 2/3 now that they are utilising him on 20+ carries.

Jets main two WRs been missing practice so questions marks over the fitness of Coles and Cotchery meaning Jones may be elied on even more.

Cleveland conceded a 100 yd RB in over half the games they've played and over 65.5 in all but one or two.

Summary: Despite playing in a bad team, Jones is still a solid back who should get this yardage and then some.

Take the 1.85 with bwin.com

To be fair, he was particularly condescending and patronising to just about everyone with it.

Nice little feature on Sky a second ago on the "Who is..." programme with Deion Sanders and Devin Hester discussing returning kicks. Two of the best ever, nice little masterclass.

Strathclyde Eagle 09-12-2007 06:21 PM

Elliott, while the Fins are in Buffalo do you reckon Mularkley's play calls could possibly manage to drive a barrel over Niagara Falls (preferrably with him in it)?

elliott 09-12-2007 06:31 PM

Please please please.

Have we done the token end around yet? Set up by the fake on the play before!

How about the standard RB option pass. Not sure I trust Samkon Gado to throw the ball.

Sad state of affairs that we have just 1 fit RB in Samkon Gado with no-one to back him up (Cobbs got hurt!). No M Booker, Lehan, Crowder or Roth!

Can you ever expect a team to win with that??? Just look at the skilled offensive players:

QB- John Beck
RB - Samkon Gado
FB - Reagan Mauia
WR - Ted Ginn
WR - Derek Hagan
TE - David Martin

What can you do on offense with that??? There are no backups in any position aside from Peelle behind Martin (he's miles better than martin too). Greg Camarillo is the sole WR backup and there are no backups in the backfield.

It's so gutting.

elliott 09-12-2007 06:38 PM

14-0 now.

6.45 to play in the 1st.

elliott 09-12-2007 06:41 PM

Ha! Bills are kicking short I think.

Steve Fifita (DT) and Reagan Mauia (giant FB) have both got KRs. Fifita fumbled his.

elliott 09-12-2007 06:44 PM

And now Beck lets go of the ball whilst passing.

21-0. 5.45 in the 1st.
