Some Super Bowl thoughts and more

Happy Thursday. The work week is coming to a close here and I am headed up to the mountains tomorrow night for a day of skiing. But don't worry, I still have football on my mind. That will never change, never. Plus, I've been led to a few new football sites (more football, less fantasy football) and I'm excited to share some new links.

Before I get to the links, a reminder that FF Librarian is up on facebook now - join me, become an FFL fan!
  • Wondering how you can bone up on your Giants trivia? Look no further than Cold, Hard Football Facts' Five facts only a Giants diehard would know.
  • Also from Cold, Hard Football Facts (yes, I am drooling over this site and kicking myself for just finding it now) check out Power Rankings: Regular-season wrapup edition, where I learned among other things that "the [2007] league-wide pass completion rate of 61.2 percent was the best ever, topping the 59.8 percent of 2004 and 2006."
  • The Football Professor has put together a Super Bowl forecast that has the Patriots winning in the end.
  • Help The Fifth Down explain all the ins and outs of Bill Belichick.
  • And finally, draft simulators and calculators took over my life for an hour+ yesterday (thanks a lot, Tones) until I realized that I had real life duties to attend to and couldn't spend any additional time on FFXtreme's Mock Draft Simulator or Fantasy Football Calculator. There is of course a tiny voice in my head telling me, "but if you mock draft once a day every day until August, you will rule the ff draft world." That could put a hurting on my actual job duties, but the thought of total draft domination is appealing - so I guess we'll see what wins out.

Back on the fantasy wagon

With my library conferences behind me (for a few weeks at least), I can now concentrate on fantasy football again. If you happen to be a librarian and are interested in how my co-presenter and I tied together fantasy football and information literacy, check out my co-presenter’s blog . Though I imagine most of you would much rather catch up on the following football news and thoughts for the week: I remain a bit dazed and confused by my certainty last summer that Cedric Benson was going to rock my RB2 world in 2007. Didn’t happen and now he’s moved onto ankle surgery, alleged intoxication and resisting arrest on boats. Awesome. You can practically taste Matt Forte’s value skyrocketing here. In fact, wondering about rookie RBs in general? Well then check out FF Xtreme’s The Day After: Ranking the Rookie Running Backs . I love reading articles or stats that challenge my preconceived notions – The Fifth Down’s Chad the Completion Percentage Machine does just that. No offense to thos

Streaming Defenses - Week 16

Don't know about you all, but in our house this week is just chock full of events, visiting with family, and getting organized for our upcoming time off over the holidays. Lots of scrambling going on around here and attempts to install some sense of gratitude in my boys. What am I grateful for this season? Many things but let's start with Bob. Bob has been my fantasy football rock, coming back week after week to post. Hats off to you, Bob, and thank you for your diligent work and research. So here he is with this year's final streaming defense post.  Well it’s the last week of the Fantasy Football Playoffs in most leagues, and my last post of the season. I hope you all found these posts useful. And if I failed you, you have to murder a lot more experts before you get to me. I myself have had a terrible playoff season. I’m out of all but one of my leagues due to the weird games the last two weeks. Between weather that didn’t materialize to normally consistent players co

A hiatus

Update:  It is with a very heavy heart that I tell you all that yesterday, August 30th, I delivered our stillborn daughter, Caroline Mary. This has been an almost surreal and definitely heartbreaking experience and I appreciate the support in each and every one of your notes. Caroline will be honored and loved always. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your thoughts and prayers - they mean the world to our family. I have been a very poor blogger this month and feel I owe you all an explanation, particularly as this is crunch time for draft prep. I hope this is not too personal of a look into my life since I know most of you are just here for the football. I am nearly 18 weeks pregnant and we have learned that our baby (a little girl!) has triploidy, a chromosomal abnormality that means she has three copies of every chromosome instead of the normal two. The doctors have explained that it's a completely random occurrence and fairly rare that she has made it this far along, but tha
