Nice work Umenyiora!!!! :p

Those Giants! :eek: Sound the sporting bigamy alarm. ;)

I'd also make the Cowboys favourites in the NFC, but their weakness is their secondary and after week one it's hardly been tested. If the Seahawks can up their game that's one very big potential challenger to them.

There must be a red hot favourite for the Heisman Trophy this year because whoever he is, the Dolphins obviously want to make sure they get him!

Strathclyde Eagle 01-10-2007 06:20 PM

I wouldn't say there is, and our needs are above and beyond one player. If Ronnie Brown keeps up his recent form then Darren McFadden definitely isn't what we need, and if we draft a QB then why waste a #2 on Beck this past draft?

Then again, that wouldn't be unlike us. Here's a great post on where the Fins have gone wrong in recent years (warning, very, VERY long):

I don't know why I'm saying this when they've got one more win than us, but if Brian Brohm isn't a Falcon next year I'd be very surprised.

BTW, if anyone is wondering why I like Gus Johnson, well it all starts from this Bill Simmons' comment from four years ago:

And then we have the surging Bengals. Put it this way: When Jon Kitna gets in the zone like this, you just climb aboard and hold on for the ride. And when Gus Johnson and Brent Jones are breathlessly narrating that same ride ... well, it reminds me of a place called nirvana. If only Gus and Brent were around to announce my wedding video:

- Gus: "Now here's the drunken groom sneaking out onto the balcony ... wait a second ... HE WANTS TO SMOKE A CIGARETTE WITH HIS BUDDIES!"

- Brent: "Gutsy move by the groom ... I'm not sure if I'd risk it this early in the reception. If the bride notices, all hell could break loose."

- GUS: "And he is ... CAUGHT! HE'S CAUGHT! And she is a house of fire!"

- Brent: "Gus, this room is absolutely stunned right now. You HAVE to wonder about that call by the groom."
And of course Gus at his best. Ignore if you don't like College Basketball:

Good grief, the Fins are only a 5.5 point underdog in Houston this Sunday. Playing along with Bill Simmons' podcast my guess was in the 8-9 point range.

For you Fins fans... I got media passes for Miami at Cleveland. Any questons you'd like me to ask that might be relevant post game?

Do they fancy their chances of being let back into the country after the game at Wembley?

Strathclyde Eagle 04-10-2007 07:53 AM

Just saw Devin Hester's latest effort on NFL.com. Might be his best one yet in terms of moves and avoiding tackles.

RDSdaEAGLE 04-10-2007 08:35 AM

I'm surprised Devin doesn't see more offensive play action. He's incredible when returning the ball, why not give him a bit more of a go when trying to rush some yards?

jlmatthews 04-10-2007 02:36 PM

Because he fumbles waaaaaay too much. Once he gets that sorted, I think you'll probably see more of him.

But then again, lok at Daunte Hall. The guy's gangbusters on special teams and is mediocre at best as a wideout. If you can't run good, clean routes NFL DB's are going to have no problems covering you...

Strathclyde Eagle 04-10-2007 09:37 PM

Cris, you on Indy this week, or going elsewhere?

Strathclyde Eagle 05-10-2007 01:00 AM

Just checked the NFL UK forums. Apparently some Wembley tickets are starting to arrive. :lux:

Wife's best-mate's husband thanking us for his birthday present. :(

No, used them up in Wk 2

Bit trickier this week. No absolute gimmes (available to me) for the first time this season

Gone for Green Bay, although not 100% confident like I've been in previous weeks.

Grim Reaper 06-10-2007 04:52 PM

Missed the delivery of my Giants ticket by 20 minutes (what kind of effed up delivery firm comes at 4.50pm anyway!!!???)

Now have to wait until Tuesday for these *******

Wow, you took them on the road in Tennessee? Nice pick, gutty.

Maybe that should be our tiebreaker, you have to pick a road team.

Strathclyde Eagle 07-10-2007 07:46 PM

That Trent Green injury looked frightening. I didn't hear it especially well, but it seems like it's just a concussion.

I know I've criticised his performances so far this year, but he got injured trying his hardest to help the team in a way a lot of QBs wouldn't (throwing a block). I hope he's ok.

jlmatthews 07-10-2007 09:31 PM

Best of luck to TG, he was trying to do something positive for a struggling team... but it's not the best idea against a huge DT!

Redskins are rocking :)
