For those who have forgotten (or are just too far behind to have a horse in this race), the NFL.com's Playoff Challenge is still going on - meaning the FF Librarian's Challenge is still in full force with 50's Big Perms in the lead with 295 points. I am in third place in our FFL challenge but sadly in 3366th place overall amongst the rest of the NFL.com competitors. Hopefully I'll make up some ground there with 7 players in my roster for the Super Bowl. I was toying around with my RB options since I have a hole there now without Grant...I'm ultimately going with Jacobs (my other RB is Maroney) but I did think about Bradshaw - until I read this article from Accuscore: Ahmad Bradshaw in Focus and I realized that regardless of Bradshaw's recent quality performances, I would be crazy not to start Jacobs.
Other football thoughts for the day:
- If you're in a keeper league and trying to make some big decisions about your roster (like do you keep LT or AP, yes seriously, someone actually had that very sweet dilemma), check out NFL.com's Fantasy Mailbag for answers from Michael Fabiano.
- There's a lot of stuff on Gregg Rosenthal's blog about the Super Bowl and I'm not sure which bit I liked the best since I'm trying to live vicariously through them all, but try Setting the Scene just to get a feel for the media mayhem in Arizona.
- Wondering how the newbie QBs of 2007 might fare in the future? Try Pro Football Reference's Similarity Scores for New 2007 Quarterbacks, which compares 2007's QBs to all QBs who have played since 1978 to get an idea of which players/seasons they can be considered comparable to based on their performance this year. Interesting stuff.
- Know who the announcers will be on Sunday for the SB? And which announcers would you be most interested in hearing?
- Want some keeper rankings? Try Sports Grumblings' 2008 RB Keeper League Chart for some ideas.
