Finding Football Fun

Football entertainment in the off-season is hard to come by - but Cold, Hard Football Facts has done it again with a relatively amusing and not-too-time-consuming (I know you are all honing your NCAA brackets right now anyway) football poll. Now I'm looking around the massive study space just outside of my university library office, and I can tell that those of you who are in college or grad school are probably very busy with pre-spring break work. So take this poll, my friends. It's a quiz you can't fail. And for the rest of us who are suckers with real jobs, who perhaps attempted to relive the college glory days over a few pints of green beer last night, take a five minute break from that job and poll it up.

I do love Fantasy Football Xtreme - if you haven't been to this site before, it's definitely worth your time. One of the many reasons to love the site is that Smitty is always coming up with solid fantasy articles, particularly now during the long, parched stretch of the NFL off-season. Check out 2008 Strength of Schedule for Running Backs. While the exact 2008 schedule hasn't been set yet, the opponents schedule has been set...so bring on the analysis! One interesting nugget: KC's opponents rank nearly 22nd (out of 32) against the run - does this bode well for Larry Johnson or what? While I of course hope the Broncos and others facing KC might beef up their run D before the 2008 season arrives, this is certainly something to chew on as you mull over RB rankings.

Curious about how the NFL draft will go at the end of next month? There are numerous places to look for mock drafts, but check out Ask The Commish's Top 2008 NFL Draft Prospects by Position.

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
