With only SIX teams at 2-1 or 3-0 in the AFC
I'd say no one's really out of it yet... and besides Denver, no one in the AFC is really overwhelming.... case in point, the Ravens are 2-0, that's a damning statement on the AFC!



Ravens are 2-0 with the leagues best defense and a bruising running game.

LOVE the job that Cam Cameron is doing with a rookie QB.

ESPNEWS reports.

Raiders coach Lane Kiffin was not fired yesterday by Raiders owner Al Davis, so he lives for another week in the NFL.

Rams bench QB Mark Buldger and will start Trent Green this weekend vs. the Bills.

Steelers RB Willie Parker is out for this Monday nights game vs. the Ravens.

and bad mid-round picks... ANYONE who knows anything about fantasy football, the starting picks are NICE but champions are made in the late rounds and waiver wires!!

I had one draft with Brady, Burelson and Braylon Edwards.... that team is 2-1, thanks to smart mid-round quality selections B )

It appears that the Giants will miss their top WR for the Seattle game as Burress is suspended for for going AWOL or MIA on the team.


http://sports.espn.g...tory?id=3606150

Burress suspended for failure to appear, not returning calls
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Super Bowl star Plaxico Burress was suspended for one game by the New York Giants on Wednesday for an undisclosed violation of team rules.


General manager Jerry Reese and coach Tom Coughlin informed Burress of the suspension Wednesday morning before the team held a bye-week practice.

According to Fox Sports, which first reported the suspension on its Web site on Wednesday, Burress did not report to the team facility as expected on Monday and did not return phone calls from the team seeking an explanation.

The suspension takes effect immediately, meaning Burress will miss the Giants (3-0) game against the Seattle Seahawks on Oct. 5.

gee, the Cowboys and Giants ranked 1 and 2 in the NFL power rankings after week 3, 2 best teams in the NFL... Dont agree with Philly ranked 3 but hey thats it....


1. Dallas Cowboys 3-0 1 Explosive offense, strong defense, solid special teams, abundant talent. Everything you could want from the league's best team.
2. New York Giants 3-0 2 Should have been easier vs. the Bengals, but the Giants were able to rely on their championship poise when it counted most.

it is no big deal and every company and team does the same thing...... What would happen if someone doesnt show up for work without calling? you get suspended.... its part of the business called sports.. No big deal. Giants have a bye week anyway


At least the Giants don't have the BIGGEST a$$holE in the NFL on their team, Terrell "douchebag" owens.

Not that I am comparing the two, but it's what people thought when Chris Benoit disappeared for a weekend... and I think we all remember how THAT turned out... it's kinda scary when people just up and disappear for what seems to be no reason, and there should be a bit of concern, wrestler, hockey player, football player... whatever....

just hopefully it's not something that leads to something else worse down the road as these weird episodes can lead to (and Plaxico is a kinda weird guy anyway)

What would you say if TO went AWOL???? I can't even imagine.
No big deal going AWOL after getting the $ he finally wanted and after all the bitching HE has done over the years???
Oh, that IS a big deal, if it was not, why would they suspend him?

Actually its a good thing the team suspended him. Some teams don't have the balls to suspend their star players. if you ask me T.O. would've been suspended a few times for the stuff he has pulled, said and done on the cowboys. T.O. always a whiner and always will be... He cried after losing in the playoffs, which is sooo unprofessional! Suck it up, you got beat fair and square.

.... Burress violated team rules and now he pays for it. Simple. Thats the way it goes. its no big deal because that is what supposed to happen when player violates team rules... its no big deal in the sense the giants will step up AS A TEAM and play fine against seattle. the giants dont rely on star players to do well... they rely on TEAM EFFORT.


If T.O. went AWOL it would be the best thing for the NFL... He is a whiner, sore loser, and a big mouth without a ring!!!!

Thats ALL BS.

FF Champions are predominantly made in the first few rounds. Winners have typically have won when they have drafted LT, Brady, Alexander and Johnson/Holmes the past few years.

Aside from that my middle rounds were better than most (e.g Rivers was highly criticized when I picked him, but is the #1 ranked QB in the league) the only potential mistake I made in the draft was my gamble on the Jets in utilizing their most explosive back properly- Leon Washington (which is why they should be 0-3).

It's a long season I expect to be in the final 4.

and belief like that is why you are 0-3
ask the guy who got Frank Gore in the 9th round how that works out
or the dude who got Adrian Peterson last year?
... or the guy who waited on his QB to "take a chance" on Tony Romo or Kurt Warner??

any fool can pick a name from the top 25.... WINNERS are made with shrewd late round decisions....

but hey you keep buying that theory B )

I was thinking this about the Lions too, they can't stop Rutgers with their defense :P
but now the albatross of Millen is gone... they might be ok... at least this week

I was the dude who picked Adrian Peterson last year and he was my first RB in the draft.

So which is it? "shrewed late round decisions" or "taking a chance"?

note how I typed shrewd late round decisions without quotes and "taking a chance" with quotes... just the context of the use of language should answer your question B )

I picked Peterson in my money league.... as my flex guy :P (remember I am in 4 leagues this year)
then again getting Braylon Edwards in round 12 last year worked out well too

you name me the team that wins in fantasy football that doesn't have some late round/waiver wire genius in it, or have you not actually won a league anywhere to be able to compare it too??? :whistling:
