I went looking for that thompkins guy this morning in my leagues. he was gone, so I checked the waiver wire. he was picked up LAST week in every one of my leagues.

I dunno how I hang out at the smartest afceast blog in america and get scooped on shit like this.

Just for laughs, a comment from the New and Improve E!PN blogs:

"AND ALSO the pats didnt win a playoff game since 2007..... i think the jets are better than the pats right now"

From the Madden demo I've played it's super awesomely realistic.   I like how if you throw to a receiver before their route dictates they should be looking for the ball, he drops it.  Also if you throw to a receiver over the middle to get laid out by a LB or S, the chances of injury go up.  Already took Tue/Wed off next week....stoked!!

sorry CJ, didn't see your comment earlier. You basically pick win/lose for 2 points....i added score as an extra challenge. If you get it right you get 5 points

my money is on BB finding a way to keep tebow, just because he likes to be a contrarian son of bitch.

We've been talking about him off and on for awhile. He's been getting 1st team reps ahead of the other rookies and Edelman for a few weeks.

@gregstar52 

let me know if you needs ideas there. I've been credited as being the guy who put the semi into semi-productive

It's hard to tell how it'll play out though. When Gronk and Amendola are both healthy and handling the middle Dobson may overtake Thompkins outside. I give Thompkins the edge but it's very early still.

I would I could find some video on him from last nights game. I really wanted to show everyone his release, they're like Tomlinson jump cuts.

they are just 10 team leagues on yahoo. I have long time ones from school and an old job, but these are the new money$ ones ($100, $250) they have up now (not considered gambling!), so the dudes on their are real serious.

I think subconsciously at least he has a desire to prove he is the greatest ever football mind, a football alchemist if you will, he can transmute shit into gold - eventually.

Did you see my post below about the fumbles? I didn't find much.

Tebow had 0 snaps last night. Get ready for the NE media to edit their roster predictions later today.

buzz because it's stupid and people flock to rankings....

i just compiled the madden 25 all AFC east team, nothing special

@the hooded genius 

yeah, I have gronk in all leagues, and Ame in one league. I really could have used him at least at this moment it appears. for some reason they all jumped on him last week. 

the hooded genius

Ah yeah, he'd be great if you have Amendola. Just get ready to make a small trade offer or grab him off wires if he has a slow week or two.

word. my top 3 wr are andre johnson, roddy white, dwang bowe. 

top 3 rb are lynch, wilson, bradshaw....

2 rb 2 wr league. we will see how this works out.

@finfan5357 

yeah, just cause I hit rb hard this year because whenever I don't I find its a disaster. I didn't really factor in the fact there was no flex, because I figured a couple weeks in I could trade an extra runingback for a receiver when someone got desperate. but I just can't get behind the 8ball. 

finfan5357
finfan5357

oh got ya. it's a relatively big deal then.

@finfan5357 

kind of. they are 3 wr 2 rb leagues. and I went rb heavy, light on wr. on one team I had amendoula. I really might need him for that team if Ame misses a couple games early because my 4th wr is for shit and my 3rd is stevie johnson who is having problems as well. and I was checking him for all other teams because he'd probably be better than what I had as 5 receivers on those teams if he becomes the 3rd target or Ame stays hurt.

He's not PS eligible and we don't play any option QBs until the 2nd half of the season.

the hooded genius

It's normally the #2 but can vary. Sometimes a positional player will run it for mobile QBs, etc.

@the hooded genius I'm thinking BB keeps him around to play in the all important 4th game next week. 2qtrs for Mallet and 2qtrs for Tebow

mikesfriedrice
mikesfriedrice

@the hooded genius 

who runs the scout team, is it he #2 qb or #3? or is it a guy from the practice squad? he could have some value when they go against the several teams that will have the read option as a package. 

/you can see I'm REALLY digging for a roll here.
