Really Neat or Take a Seat: Week 7

17th of October, 2012

The word “neat” is one of the best descriptors in the entire English dictionary. “Hey, neat shirt, Thomas.” Am I being a sarcastic prick, or am I just an incredibly innocent individual trying to tell Thomas that his clothing is aesthetically enjoyable? Transfer this way of thinking to my weekly “Really Neat or Take a […]

Really Neat or Take a Seat: Week 4

26th of September, 2012

I was wrong. Chris Johnson is not a good running back. He shouldn’t have been a first round draft pick, and he shouldn’t be someone you’re starting in your weekly fantasy lineup.

I’m man enough to admit it. Christian Ponder is my starting quarterback. But it’s a 16-team league, and there are about 30 quarterbacks owned throughout it. I made the mistake thinking I could bank on Russell Wilson late in the draft. In round 11, where I had hoped to get Wilson, there were ten quarterbacks […]
