    Superbowl might not have been as good, but it was a whole lot funnier. Great drive from Peyton to make it a two point game.
    Let's just say we're going to have to agree to disagree. Sometimes I just wish I could have drank copious amount of alcohol to drown my sorrows, but alas, I don't drink. It was not a nice game to watch sober. And yes...looking back one has to have a bit of gallows humor when facing the Seahawks, and reflecting on that superbowl.

    Also...a nice throw into very tight coverage on the two point conversion. That's overlooked in that game.

    Well Geno Smith managed to beat the Jets all by himself
    Kyle Fuller has been mighty impressive though. He's racking up the picks...and they are good picks as well. I honestly thought though the Jets had Da Bears though.

    Well I'm jumping all over the waiver wire this week. I've got Rob as my matchup and currently can't even field a team. I just hope waiver priority 3 does it's job!

    Oooh so close in my non-TSR league. Just scraped through by 3 points. Should never have been that close, had Kelvin Benjamin, Nick Foles and Alshon Jeffery (didn't know if he was going to play tbh) on the bench. Jeremy Hill on the bench too scored more than all my RBs (Gore, Lacy + Morris). All told I could have had a win by 44 points but a win's a win at the end of the day.

    In the TSR league that was bad tbh

    I have about half of your team in my other league, so I feel the pain. The problem is that there's nobody good left on waivers in my other league, and with Woodhead on IR, the best left is possibly Lorenzo Taliaferro

    Oh our waivers are much better. If both of my claims go through I'll be pretty happy with the lineup. I'm glad I'm not short on RB's; if I was I might be in trouble, I mean Forte's numbers are horrible and MJD was injured last week but DeMarco Murray is proving to be useful. Zac Stacy is on a bye but he's actually been pretty awesome whilst he's been in considering I picked him by accident and wanted now injured for a long time Ryan Matthews

    In my other league I have Mathews, and when he went down, traded for Woodhead. Oops...

    If you're a little bit clueless on the defensive side of the ball the Big D defensive masterclass is on Sky Sports 2 right now. I'm hoping it teaches me something, been through 4-3, 4-3, nickel and dime so far, I already knew that but there's 45 minutes left.

    It is a good week to be playing me though. I have 2 eligible bench guys in Golden Tate and Jay Cutler, the rest have a bye week!

    The Lions are playing the Jets, though can always rely on Stafford to throw at least one pick

    You're still projected to beat me easily.

    True but the projections are so crappy. Matt Forte who the OL are not letting succeed scores 19.10 against the Packers, DeMarco Murray, leading rusher against New Orleans who are equally not known for their run defense scores 8.80? And it's at home!? They just make it up.

    Forte has not been himself either this year. He's lacking decisiveness and going sideways. Still a threat as a receiving back this year. Hopefully he can turn it around. Lynch was projected 5 points in week 2 for some reason. And Rivers is only projected 15 points against the Jags, and Donald Brown projected 8 points. I'll take that matchup in my IDP league. At home? Against the Jags? Against the most points given up to a QB and to a RB in the league, a couple of weeks removed from a 30-odd point performance against Seattle for Rivers.......yeah. I'm taking that all day, even over Matt Ryan playing @Minnesota.

    Eli sure did his best Peyton impression against the Redskins.

    Maybe too good...

    On the new madden game there is a skills trainer which teaches you how to read defences and stuff. Pretty cool really.

    That is quite cool, I tried to do it on the old Madden with variable success, having a tool to help people read defenses will probably lead to better games on both sides of the ball.

    Ryder Cup won, International Series to come, today is a good day. I can't wait for my trip down to Wembley for the Jags, I hope they put on the same kind of stuff we've seen for the Raiders game.
