Kirk is loving that, how big of a loss will Cook be is the question. The only team better in your division is the Lions and they haven't proven anything so the Vikings could still be a playoff team.

 

Looks like we will have RB by committee led by Mattison. The other backs are Kene Nwangwu and Ty Chandler. We drafted this guy McBride in the 6th round this year, but I read he fumbles a lot. He needs to fix that if he wants to play.

 

We also use a fullback, CJ Ham.

We may lose Taylor so I feel your pain. I hope we don't but this whole Taylor situation hasn't looked good at all.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Cade Johnson has been transported to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle out of precaution to be evaluated for head and neck injuries sustained in Thursday’s preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings, the Seahawks announced. He’s in stable condition, the team said.

Anyone planning on participating in Fantasy Football?? Are there any rookies that you would like on your teams?

Nah, I am retired from it. I played in 12 team leagues from 2014-2019, haven't played since Covid. The old gang I did my leagues with quit and I was ready to do so as well. I won my league in 2018 with Andrew Luck at QB. I had a squad that season with Luck and Hopkins. The league I was in was real competitive, these dudes would bring their laptops and notebooks to the table when drafting. We always met up at a bar to do our draft. From 2014-2017 I took some whippings, but I took a gamble on Luck bouncing back after his injury and I kicked rear! I got him in the 3rd round after there were like at least 5 or 6 QB's taken. Hopkins was my first pick and it paid off.

I'm going to watch a little of the Giants and Lions. Giants are leading 6-0 (2 FGs).

Yep I wish I had access to all the games, there will be several tonight I think. Keep me updated of any highlights from that one!

GB just had a great drive, Love already more poised, TD.

The Giants are showing here because they are the local team. I'm not sure when the Jets are playing but that game will be showing too.

 

I may be able to watch the Colts game on my phone tomorrow. :)

Are the Lions fans hype? I know some of the fan bases that are usually the underdog come out screaming even for preseason 

 

The Lions fans are very optimistic. They love their head coach. I do too. I was very intrigued by their team last year and even more this year. And they signed one of my favorite people, Teddy Bridgewater. He may not make the team. He is battling Sudfeld for backup QB but Sudfeld is ahead of him.

I think the starters are done playing here too but there are some known names on the field like WR Cole Beasley and RB James Robinson.

 

Lol. The Giants announcers said they are confused as to why the Lions are favored to win the division.

    • This QB draft class is a lot better than the 2022 class, that class was bad. Last year's QB class was ok and I think Stroud and Richardson will have the best career's. This one here has a lot more talent than 2022, it is just a matter of who guesses right or wrong. Daniels can run and pass, he is dangerous. Penix can run a pro level type offense, Williams is loaded with talent.
    • Yea my bad, i finished it and lazily didnt feel like changing it before submitting. 🥴 I will probably make another change or 2 and repost a final version by draft day anyways, so…
    • One thing I have never done is meet Peyton Manning. I have been to around 50 home games during my Fandom from 1987-2013 regarding going to games. I met Jim Harbaugh and got his autograph when I went to the Chargers game in 1996. He chatted with me for around 2 or 3 minutes. Called me Bud over and over and was so nice and he kept smiling at my mom  . I was only 25 then. Just going to the Masters alone had to be a treat but talking to Peyton had to be the cherry on top. Great stuff man.
    • I just thought I would take this opportunity to brag a bit about the fact that I had the opportunity to chat with Peyton at the Masters last week for about 5 minutes.  Truly a bucket list experience and I must say, he has the Southern Hospitality that one might expect but wow- did not expect to run into him and it was quite the experience.  It just had to be the one place left on earth where cell phones are banned, so no picture opportunity unfortunately.   I told Peyton that my first Colts experience was riding to Buffalo in a blizzard when the Colts were 14-0 and they benched him only to lose that game. I said thanks for my first Colts experience being one where he was riding the pine.  He laughed, apologized to me and said that if it was up to him he would have been checking down in that snow storm for 4 quarters.  He thanked me for the support, and was asking me a bit about myself, where I am from, etc.  Quite the gentleman! I think it was obligatory for him to be nice to patrons while he was wearing his Green Jacket, but none the less....a great experience meeting a childhood hero. Lynn Swann walked up to us while we were talking and shook Peyton's hand.  I joked that now was the perfect time for a 10 yard slant- and then slid into the bushes like Homer Simpson with humility.    Unforgettable experience everyone!   Would love to hear some of your Peyton stories from over the years, since it is a bit of a slow time of year before the draft! Let it fly Colts fans  
    • I agree.  I think this is another one of those over-hyped QB classes that will probably never perform to the level of the hype. But -- teams still need a quarterback.  And will convince themselves that that must take one of these quarterbacks.  That it's the only solution to their problem.  If I was forced to choose, I would probably go with Heisman winner Jayden Daniels.  I'm concerned that Caleb Williams may have some personality issues to go with his lack of measurables, even though he shows strong ability to improvise.  Drake Maye has the measurables, but I have questions regarding the level of opposition playing at UNC.  It's not the same as playing the equivalent of the Crimson Tide every single week.  JJ McCarthy is "good".  And he's been successful.  He led his team to a BCS championship.  And?  I see him in the same mold as AJ McCarron.  Supremely successful in college, but not good enough to be The Guy in the pros.
