Solid Football Weekend

This weekend proved to be a great football weekend. I am going to my first Monday Night Football game, baby. Broncos non-season tickets went on sale this past Saturday and we got tickets for the Nov 19, Monday Night Broncos-Titans game. Knowing Colorado's weather it is likely to either be 70 degrees and balmy that night or 30 degrees with a foot of snow. I'll pull for the former.

This was the weekend of the fantasy football podcast for me. Two podcasts to check out:
1. The Sports Guy talks with Matthew Berry about fantasy football
2. Bruno Boys wrap up their coverage of the league with talk of the AFC West

Time to go camping! Training camp has arrived and I'm thrilled. Here in Denver, there were multiple news specials on the Broncos training camp with interesting stuff including Marcus Thomas, a 300+ pound DT starting things off right with a series of round offs and back flips - extremely impressive. There's some concern about the WR position with both Rod Smith and Brandon Marshall injured; David Kircus stepped up with the play-of-the-day during yesterday's practice [photo: Jamie Schwaberow]. I'll be making my own trip down to Dove Valley one morning next week and will report back any tidbits I see/learn there.

In other fantasy news, check out NFL.com's article listing 15 guys to keep an eye on - they might not be drafted but could certainly come in handy as the season rolls on: Players who can become viable options.

And for those more concerned about your impending draft than about waiver wire finds, check out The Huddle's How to Tab Value Running Backs or ProFantasySports.com's The 'Don't Touchables' that looks at some overrated and underrated players.

I've gone to MNF at Mile High twice, and it's great. Have fun.
