The worst part about football season is having to wait for the next game on the schedule. Is it me or has the injury bug really been biting this season early and often? The best safety in the league (we all know who I am talking about), one of the best LB's in the league (Urlacher) and one of the best QB's (McNabb) all suffer injuries week one. I think McNabb will be ok with the cracked rib, he has played with broken bones before and you cannot question his toughness. Urlacher on the other hand is probably done for the year with his dislocated wrist (hurts just typing that). Hopefully we can get some encouraging news from the Steelers on Troy in the coming days although I don't think they should rush him back no matter what. The season is a marathon and not a sprint and I don't want Troy at 85% just so he can come back a game or two early. Give him off all the time he needs to be ready and when they come off the bye 11/9/09, he'll be good and ready to go and probably 100%.
My fantasy season picked right up where it left off last year, in the dumper and I was only correct on 6 of my picks against the spread in a league that me and some friends play online through Yahoo. Better luck next week I hope. I tell my buddies all the time, the fantasy stuff and the pick 'em league are all fun and games, the only thing that really matters is the BLACK N GOLD!
People here in Houston are all ready to throw in the towel after Sunday's debacle vs. the Jets in Houston. Gary Kubiak does not seem to have what it takes to be a really good head coach in the NFL. This guy has about as much emotion on his sleeve as a mortician and his team plays like he coaches, uninspired.
Here's to hoping Timmons practices this week but just like with Troy, please don't rush him back. We need healthy people playing, not 85% ers.
