    Poor Seidenbergy. Trevor siemian named starter for broncos. Another year wasting that great defense.

    LOL. They won the SB the year Peyton Manning put up statistically the worst season of any SB-winning QB ever. All they need out of the position is a game-manager and Siemian can do that.

    They had trevor siemian last year. That defense isn't gonna get better than it is. They need someone better than siemian. It was a nice run though.

    Siemian's stats last year in his first year starting were in almost all cases identical to or better than the GOAT's were in 2001, so I fail to see your point. You think he peaked as a 24 year old in his first year starting? Interesting take.

    That is correct. I think trevor siemian stinks/will stink.

    Ya, Denver isn't a concern to me this season. I'm guessing our game vs. them this season will be a mirror image of last year's.

    I would argue the game has drastically changed since 2001, be it rule changes or just overall style. It's a lot more pass-happy versus then.

    On a side note I am glad to see we are all in agreement that Payton Manning was just along for the ride in his last Super Bowl win.

    Most over hyped athlete of all time. He's nothing but a good regular season QB. Before Denver he had a losing career playoff record and only won 1 SB. Look it up. The Pats gave someone a SB ring. Tom went to my favorite college so I'm still a fan of his.

    If more proof than the eye test was needed to see that the game has changed since 2001, Brady was ranked 6th in passer rating that year, Siemian was 23rd last year. INT were 35% more commonplace back then, and that's before accounting for pass attempts. Dungy and Peyton got what they wanted, and Brady's stats have skyrocketed since.

    Fantasy Football Experts...

    Had our Fantasy Draft last night and while I made out alright at the WR position (Hilton, Thomas, Jeffrey,Sanders, & Brown) the RB leaves a little to be desired. A bunch of guys that are probably boom or bust week-to-week. I ended up with Gurley, CJ Anderson, Montgomery, Powell and McFadden (good for 5 weeks anyway). Without looking too much into match-ups, who do you think are my top 2 backs?

    For anyone else who's interested, nabbed Wilson and Carr as QB's and Reed at TE...

    I just had a very similar draft. My RB's are David Johnson (keeper), Powell, Anderson, Blount. I wasn't happy with my RB depth but my WRs are stacked.

    For your team though, right now I'd rank em as:
    Gurley
    Montgomery
    Powell
    Anderson
    McFadden

    I like Powell alot cause he can do it all. He was crushing it the 2nd half of last season when he was the starter. I think he has a large ceiling but he needs Forte to stay off the field to reach it.

    Montgomery looks to be GB's starter right now but they seem to like their rookie for some change of pace.

    Anderson is a toss up because Denver has Booker, Henderson, and Charles too. I think Anderson will get a good amount of touches to start so let's hope he holds onto the job. Booker disappointed last year, Henderson is a rookie and who knows about Charles.

    Yeah, I like Blount for Philly this year, but he got nabbed just before I was gonna grab him. Not much else there in Philly...

    If I engaged in some type of political or social activity (such as social media) and it had a negative effect on my business and/or career, no one would feel sorry for me. The last time I checked pro football is a business. No one should feel sorry for Colin K.

    EDIT: Jags QB Henne gets next start over Bortles. IS CHAD THE ANSWER? :shakehead

    Precisely. There's some good tweets from a few years ago floating around twitter saying how good Bortles is, good reading :laugh:

    Bortles got actively worse as his career went on. Mechanics got sloppy as hell too


    I blame it more on Jacksonville than anything else. I bet he could've been competent in the right situation

    3 out of their last 5 regular season matchups have been at Gillette.

    The Chargers and the NFL may have a problem on their hands.

    http://thebiglead.com/2017/08/13/th...b-center-for-their-first-game-in-los-angeles/

    The San Diego Los Angeles Chargers lost their preseason opener to the Seattle Seahawks 48-17 on Sunday, but that wasn’t close to the most embarrassing thing that happened to them. No, that came when the official attendance was announced: it was 21,054.

    The Chargers are an NFL team and couldn’t get more fans than an MLS franchise having an awful season.

    the Rams didn't have very good attendance last year either. the NFL needs to stop moving trash teams to LA and expecting them to grow fan bases immediately.
