Michael Irvin. Isn't he the guy who showed up for his court case in a fur coat and sunglasses?
Ah well, I got $100 with 17 to 1 odds on the Pats winning it all. Not quite the 52 to 1 I got in 2001, but it's a good bet.

You're kidding!  Who was the goof that gave you that? I hear Vegas is pretty much running 2-1 odds on the Pats, you got a steal.  Then again, Moss is going to work his magic on that team pretty soon....he's the Alex Rodriquez of football...great stats, no soul.

Like he did with the Raiders?  Sorry Mike...gotta disagree with you there.  Yeah I know, he didnt have the quality quarterback with the Raiders that he has now with Brady, but frankly I dont think it will make much difference.  Moss is a whiny, lazy punk and hopefully he will pull his hammy and sit the bench for the majority of the season.  :twisted:

You misunderstood my deep, deep sarcasm, by his "magic", I meant the whining discontent that has followed his career when not thrown the ball 25 times a game, and the funks he goes into because of that.  I give the over/under at 5 games before he shows his disatisfaction at Brady for not making him the focal part of the offense...and starts taking plays off.

Is that Swervin' Michael Irvin? He was on his rookie year I think as I was tuning out of the sport, if it's the same guy. For me there was Joe Montana and then the rest. I loathed the 49ers, mostly because with Joe throwing, Rice catching and Craig running, 2 min warning, 6 points down, 4th and 20 on their own 1yd was a sure fire winning position for those guys. Every bloody time! Can't imagine any team has come along since that matched the 49ers in their pomp. Mind you I was current when the 'Fridge' was hauling has fat behind around the place. Couldn't tell you who won the last Superbowl.

You missed the latest Cowboys dynasty.   Three superbowls in four years, several hall of famers (Aikman and Irvin already in, Emmitt Smith and Larry Allen going in the next few years), one broken all time rushing record (Smith).  Hell you missed the Broncos, Rams and Pats runs as well. I actually feel sorry for you....some good football the last 20 years!

One of the guys I play cards with is a bookie. I get stupid odds because he's been paying my bills for years thru poker, and I refuse to book with him unless I get stellar odds. He desperately wants to win against me at SOMETHING, the money is irrelevant to him.
I screwed up too, it's 12 to 1. 17 to 1 was last year. I'm still gambling on his dime, will be for the rest of my life in fact.
Moss will either produce or be out of football. He knows it. If he washes out with the Pats, no one will touch him.
Welker is the one to watch. Mark my words. He won't have thousands of yards, but he'll get first downs on 3rd and long.

I would say that the Raiders had better play good defense.  They haven't got an offense.

We are on the seventh round in our league's fantasy football draft.  No Raiders taken yet.  None.

I just picked up Tony Romo, by the way...in the 6th round.

So far:   Steven Jackson (RB), Antonio Gates (TE), Cedric Benson (RB), T.J. Houshmanzadeh (WR), Anquan Boldin (WR) and now Tony Romo (QB).

If the rest of the draft goes this well...championship!  The Yardbirds are on the march, baby!   :twisted:   Monster Bowl VII here we come!  :twisted:

Huh.. would have thought him too old for a second career after pen-&-pencil games. Oh wait, you must mean the British Steve Jackson.

Speaking of fantasy football, I floated the idea of an Acaeum league in the Friday night chat a couple of weeks ago.  Would there be any interest in such a league?  It would be free to play and administered online (probably at Yahoo).  

This would be a relaxed "fun" league rather than an ultra-competitive, screw the competition at all costs type league.  All experience levels from first timer to expert would be welcome.  

Thoughts?

For all the bluster I have been reading, only one team has a win so far.

Pittsburgh Steelers
