August 31, 2012 Leave a comment

While Ridley is off trying to prognosticate what the AFC will do, Matt is here with all the info you need to know about the NFC, in 5 sentences or less per team, with Ridley snarking along.


New York Giants:

New York has a good team.  I mean they won the championship last year, so I need to give them some respect!  When the Giants are healthy they can defeat any team in this league.  Will they stay healthy this year?  I think they will, I think they will win the division again.

Mike: Boo! They’ll fall flat on their faces, making Eli even more fugly. Read more…


Ridley and Matthew’s Fantasy Battle

August 28, 2012 Leave a comment










It’s a long standing tradition that Ridley and Matthew talk “The League”-type trash to each other about anything and everything regarding fantasy football. Now that both have created their own Top 5 list, we’re imploring you to determine who’s was better. Granted, the loser will claim the voters were incompetent, but who cares. It’s still fun!

Matthew’s Top Five Fantasy Football Players

August 27, 2012 Leave a comment

Good afternoon everyone!  My name is Matt and I have been a fantasy player for years.  I have had good years and my bad years.  I am like David Hasslehoff.  Some years I am running on the beach with Pam Anderson and Yasmine Bleeth and other years I am praying that the crunch in my Hamburger is not an old toe nail from the kitchen floor.  New fantasy football players often fall into two categories.  There are the fans and the Madden players.  The fans will always pick players from their favorite teams.  I was in a league one time where the newbie picked Josh Morgan of the 49ers in the first round.  Then there are the Madden players.  I like to call them the “Turduckens.”  They have been playing Madden for a while and they are very good at it.  They have won the Super Bowl with Alex Smith, Jamarcus Russel and Cold McCoy as their QB’s and they believe they can do the same in Fantasy.  I regret to inform you that I fell into that category.  The first year I played my two QB’s were JP Losman and Kyle Boller.  It’s a good thing I was able to get Drew Bledsoe off the waiver wire that year.  I want to make sure you are all prepared for your drafts, so let’s go through my top five players and a sleeper pick for the year.

Filling Doug Martin’s Shoes

August 27, 2012 Leave a comment

Over the last few weeks much ado has been made about replacing Kellen Moore in Boise State’s offense, and rightfully so. Moore was the undisputed leader of a Boise State team that had the best record in college football during his four-year reign. However, an aspect that continues to get overlooked is replacing the production of Doug Martin, BSU’s versatile running back in the backfield.

During his four years at BSU (two and a half as a starter), Martin accumulated over 3,400 yards on the ground, including two straight seasons eclipsing the 1,200 yard mark. He also was able to do this while averaging over 5.5 yards per carry (YPC). Finding someone to fill those shoes should be BSU’s second priority going into the new season. Read more…

Roger Clemens: Extreme Competitor or Evil Genius?

Yesterday, Roger Clemens was back in the headlines, and for the first time in five years, it was because of baseball activity. Clemens, 50, signed with the Sugar Land Skeeters of the independent Atlantic League yesterday and is scheduled to make, at this point, one start this Saturday night. Many are hypothesizing that this is Clemens’ attempt to return to the big leagues for the first time since 2007, when he was with the Yankees. If this is true, it begs a much deeper question of why? Why return to the majors when you’re 50, you’re rich, in good health and well past your prime? Why risk potential embarrassment? Why do it when you’re on the brink of qualifying for the Hall of Fame ballot? Is he doing it because he can’t stay away from the game (much like a certain quarterback we know all too well) or because he has ulterior motives? Read more…
