Studs (nice Rayhawk)
Brees - Now I know picking Brees is not exactly going out on a limb, but he did have a terrible game last week. This week he's going against the last ranked pass D in the league, and his running game is in disarray. Anything less than 250yds and 3Td's and I'll call this a dud. (weather pending)
Delhomme - The Cardinals head to the east coast again, you can never forget the 6 Td's Favre laid on them.
Mcnabb - It makes me throw up a little in my mouth to type this down.
O'Sullivan - His job is on the line and Martz loves him. Martz will find a way for him to have a solid game against a struggling Seattle team.
Gore - Coming off a horrible performance, he gets back to himself this week.
T. Jones - Going against a Chiefs run D that might be the worst I have seen in the last 10 years.
Mcgahee - He's been getting stronger and better every week, now he's got the right matchup to have the big day you've been waiting for.
Tomlison - Maybe the biggest disappointment in Fantasy Football this year. He was every one's #1 or #2 pick. You finally get a big game from him this week.
Avery - This is my pick for a great #3 WR this week. 2 solid games in a row, he had a TD last week plus another long one called back. If he's available in your league pick him up!
A. Johnson - The huge #'s continue this week.
S. Smith - See Delhomme above.
R. White - His last 4 games, 29rec 453yds 3tds. This is Ryan's security blanket, cover yourself in him.
Enjoy the games!

Enjoy the aroma coming from your kitchen, but relax you don't have to do anything for the next 5-6 hours, except watch football. Enjoy as many beers as you can during this time.
We're gonna need a bigger boat
Fill your plate with the delicious treat you have created. Around this time your "comfort food" will start ruining your beer buzz, this is OK. If your favorite team has already played, then you can take a nap during 60 minutes, you need the rest.
This move depends on whether your team won or not. If they lost your probably done for the day, if they won, you get your second wind. You tune into the Sunday night game, or if that sucks, you put on Smokey and the Bandit, and have a couple more beers.
You're at the water cooler on Monday morning, and you share the gas with your coworkers that you acquired by eating 5 bowls of pot roast and drinking lots of beers. And......you are proud!

The Redskins - I jinxed them. I am a very superstitious person. Never again will I predict a Redskin's fantasy numbers. That's all I have to say about that.
But I'm here to issue a plea to all Skins fans, keep yourselves grounded! The same fans that were on Internet message boards, and calling into Sportstalk radio saying we are going to Tampa, turned around and said the Skins suck. Last week Zorn was the second coming of Joe Gibbs and George Allen rolled into one. This week, fire him, he sucks. Listen guys, the NFL season is 4 long months of hard battle. There are many ups and downs, stay even, or as Zorn says "medium".

Here are my Studs for Week 6.
The Redskins - every player you have including D/ST. The Rams are 31st in the league on defense, allowing 412 yds per game. Campbell, Cooley, Moss, Portis, and maybe even Randle El have big games. Defensively, the Skins have practiced against an Al Saunders Offense the past 2 years, and the Rams haven't been able to do anything offensively to date so far. Besides that, Cooley, CP, and Vladimir did a little Ram hunting this week.
Favre - 6 TD's in last outing, he's got the Bungles this week.
Frerotte - If they can't tackle AI, he may not get many chances. I still see at least 250yds and 2TD.
Mcnabb - He's been bitchin and cryin this week. Less than 200 yds the past 3 weeks. No Westbrook. Reid strokes him to 300 yds and 3 TD's.
Romo - Favre threw for 6 against the Cards, if he gets half that its 3!
R. Brown - "Wildcat" until further notice.
Jacobs - The Browns suck against the run, and the Giants are riding him.
Peterson - He's going against the Lions, enough said.
Pittman - Young is out, I think it's Pittman, not Hall that takes advantage. Shanahan likes lots of RB's like Gruden likes lots of QB's.
Berrian - He seems to be Frerotte's go to guy, and well its the Lions.
Breaston - 16 catches for 199 yds in last 2 games. The Cards will be playing from behind again this week.
Desean Jackson - Brown is out and Curtis is still banged up. See Mcnabb above.
S. Smith - He always plays big against the Bucs.
Good luck with your teams, here's to another great and exciting week of NFL action.
Cheers and Hail!

This team keeps amazing me. If this team were Kimbo Slice, they would have tapped out with 9 minutes to go in the first quarter. Down 14-0, momentum totally against them, crazy Philly fans fired up. The Skins picked themselves up, dusted themselves off, and went to work. Slowly chipping away and letting the game come back to them. It didn't matter that the Eagles took Tana out of the game, Portis and Cooley carried us. No turnovers again, you don't realize how huge that is. Any offensive turnover the past 4 weeks could have resulted in a Redskins loss. Zorn showed us again today the difference between him and Gibbs. With a 4th and 1 and a little over 2 minutes to go, he went for it. And the Redskins delivered the dagger. Gibbs would have punted and put the game in Mcnabb's hands.
Sometimes, its all worth it. All the money I've lost betting with my heart. All the shit talking that I've had to take back after the Skins lose a game they should have won. All the tears, all the yelling, all the punching holes in drywall.

Baseball was my #1 sport growing up, the one that I excelled at. If there wasn't a baseball around, then it was wiffleball. When a wiffleball wasn't available, then a wad of paper and a stick would do just fine. And in everyone of those backyard, driveway, or living room games, I was imitating my heroes. Eddie Murray's crouched stance, Cal's upright/closed stance with the bat horizontal to the ground. Pitching the wiffleball like Jim Palmer, sliding in the rain like Rick Dempsey. The list could go on and on. Those days are long gone, but I keep hanging onto the hope that one day, things will be special again.
And that brings me to the Rays. For the last 4 years, I have lived here in Tampa. I knew this Ray's team was close to breaking out the past 2 seasons. I'm surprised it did not happen last year. I will guarantee you this, they will not be going away any time soon. They are loaded with young talent, and they have more stockpiled in their farm system. I am amazed to watch the community in which I live in rally behind this team. Everyone has Ray's fever. We have 2 year old kids getting blue Mohawks, we have 60 year old politicians getting Mohawks. A new stadium is also on the horizon, a beautiful outdoor stadium, right on the Gulf of Mexico. It's a great time to be a fan of the Tampa Bay Rays.

"I see dead people, and they have stars on their helmets"
#11 San Diego Chargers - They are 4 Pt's away from being 4-0. 2 bad calls away from being 4-0.
#20 (tie) San Francisco 49er's - I also like this team to win a weak division. I still am drinking the Kool-aid on O'Sullivan.
The 21 teams above are the teams that I think still have a chance @ the playoffs. Here are 3 teams that have serious issues!
Oakland Raiders - Why does Al Davis write so many letters, and when did he turn into the Church Lady? Email somebody, or better yet, talk to them face to face. 3 years from now the Raiders will still be a 6-10 team, and Lane Kiffin will be coaching a perennial top 20 college program. Al, may the next letter you write be your resignation letter!
