Time to think about 2008

I hope you all enjoyed the Super Bowl last night, though I know several Pats fans who can't be very happy with the outcome. I appreciate Pats fans like the FF Geek Blog who give credit where credit is due...and perhaps it's time for me to eat my words about the Giants purely getting to the SB on luck. Most of all, I'd like to note my awe at David Tyree's unbelievable catch in the 4th quarter. Unreal. That play was phenomenal and in my mind, Tyree won the game for the Giants. I'm sure right now someone is saying, no the Giants D did that - and they certainly played incredibly well - but without that catch from Tyree it just wasn't going to happen for the Giants. Maybe I'm just a sucker for one big, awesome play - but seriously, Tyree, my hat's off to you and The Helmet catch.

The FF Librarian's Challenge through the is complete! The top 10 overall winners are:
  1. 50's Big Perms
  2. Black Juicers
  3. Flaming Barracuda's
  4. Chop Block Champs
  5. Power & Speed
  6. Fantasy Sports Matrix - Freddie
  7. FFLibrarian
  8. Krafty's Kannibals
  9. Dancing Nancies
  10. fooseball
Congrats to 50's Big Perms for a solid performance throughout the whole playoffs!

But now my friends, the 2007 season is over. My husband cut out a recent New Yorker ad for me that has a couple watching tv with one asking the other, "what are you going to do now that the Super Bowl is over?" and that's pretty much exactly how I always feel this time of year. But there's still so much football to discuss in the offseason. I mean, pro bowl anyone? Right, I heard a collective disgruntled sigh there I think. But there's plenty of fantasy football and real football talk to keep us all entertained.

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

Start/Sit Week 4 and a smattering of rankings

It's been awhile, my fantasy football friends. I have lofty intentions of getting several posts up here each week, but life is busy and I will do my best. So in the intervening 6 years since I've posted regularly on here, our family added another child (now there are 3!), moved back to Boulder for a sabbatical year and then returned to Knoxville, and we have basically been chugging along like many of the rest of you. My two boys (who turn 12 and 9 soon) are in a fantasy football league for the first time this year with their buddies, which ostensibly is the just the dads (and mom!) playing one another of course. But my oldest is taking it super seriously and what kind of Fantasy Football Librarian would I be if I didn't step up my game for him? So I'm back - and am interested in the fantasy landscape - lots of the same awesome sites out there, but many new ones as well. I'll try to incorporate a mix. Please be sure to let me know if my 2006 ways aren't working i
