I'll be interested to see how Denver combats that considering Cowboys guards have like 30 pounds on ours and still got mauled.

I think if Vasquez can take care of his blocks one on one, Beadles and Ramirez can double the other dude. Against the NYG, Franklin and Clady are the ones who are in the spotlight. Take care of Tuck and Paul, Giants defense can be had.

Dallas made the Giants pay with Jason Witten to the tune of 8 catches for 70 yards and 2 TD's. I'm thinking Peyton will make good use of his new found buddy Julius Thomas.

Have to disagree here. Since I started playing FF, I have become much more of a fan of the NFL as a whole. I used to just be a Broncos fan and really didn't care about the rest of the league. But now, nearly every game matters due to the individual players involved, and I will happily watch games that don't include Denver. FF has made me a more knowledgable and happier fan of the game.

Why are people so down on fantasy football. Its drafting players to win a league. Its not like I'm rooting for say Eli manning/Victor Cruz to dominate us. I'm rooting for us to win, no matter what would happen if I had Eli and Cruz. If I lose fantasy because Broncos intercept Eli 4 times, I don't care. Broncos win > Fantasy win.

Fantasy will make you more knowledgeable about some of the lesser known guys.

...in a word? Yeah.

Back in the days before fantasy football, a fan would watch his favorite team at the sports bar, and then go home.....they rarely stayed later than 4:30pm if their team had a 1pm start....

Now they sit at their table all ****ing day long because their 1st QB plays at 1pm, their 2nd RB plays at 4pm, and their 3rd WR plays at 8pm.

So your big gripe with fantasy football is that it causes people to spend too much time in sports bars?

I don't even believe that. Nobody plays fantasy college football and people like to watch that on TV.

It also gives people a reason to watch other games. What is wrong with staying at a bar to watch?

But do they stay for just one game or do they sit around all day patronizing that establishment like huge jerks?

I really don't think our server minds that we sit at our table for 7 hours every Sunday. Each of us tips $10...that's $40 for her for just one table of easy work for the day. Most of the day it's just drink refills.

There you go. Fantasy football is making it so that restaurant servers around the nation can pay their bills easier. God bless you FF!

I dont even believe errand is a real person anymore.

Quite frankly, I believe some AI programming company is using the username to tweak their artificial intelligence and every day they go over his posting history, share dejected looks and a massive sigh and say, "Back to the drawing board, again..."

$10 tip for SEVEN hours at a table?!?! Each of you gave her $1.43/hour for a total of $5.71/hour......

Ditto .. went 5-0 in week one of FF thanks to starting PFM at QB on four of my five teams this year, plus Julius Thomas as a flyer TE on 3 of 5 teams with Jared Cook on the other two helped the cause.

DT on two teams didn't hurt at all either. Its a long season but Championships are won, in my experience, not solely ... or even mostly ... just by the draft but by week to week good management and picking up sleeper FAs as, or just before, they explode on the scene.

I rarely draft RBs early and won the championship in 5 of 6 winner's leagues last year.

Need a good core of course, but rarely do you win the league at the end of the day off the draft alone.

Its a fun thing for sure, and does keep you connected to the real league as a whole that was never the case pre-FF.
