March Madness in the NFL

Okay, so there really isn't a whole lot of madness going on this month with respect to football. I just watched the Selection Show for college basketball's upcoming tournament and can feel the basketball excitement mounting in my household (my husband is a Knoxville, TN native). But as the basketball hype builds, don't forget - there is actually football news to read. For example:

  • D-Jax has left the Niners. The addition of Isaac Bruce and Bryant Johnson in the off-season made Darrell Jackson a bit obsolete for the 49ers - where will he go? Perhaps the Eagles, Redskins, Dallas, Bucs or Vikings. But will it even matter? Of more interest to me is Anquan Boldin, who is rumored to be on the move, possibly to one of those same teams. Boldin is not only the player with more potential, but his departure could have a big impact as well - Larry Fitzgerald owners, stay tuned for news on Boldin.
  • CoachBox has a poll on their site: what is the best ranking order for 2008, 1st round (for FF drafts)? All options include the trio of LT, AP and Brady. Of the 170+ votes at the time of this writing, 35% threw their support behind the order of Tomlinson, Peterson, Brady. This was the most popular trio while on the other hand, the two orderings that put LT 3rd were the least popular.
  • Are you in an IDP (individual defensive player) league? If so, keep an eye on's series on IDP sleepers. As a Broncos fan, I am happy to link to PFS's On the Defensive - AFC West IDP Sleepers article but they also already have the AFC South IDP Sleepers and AFC North IDP Sleepers...with more to come.

It's dumping big, huge snowflakes here in Colorado right now and I have my fingers crossed that it might be a massive snowstorm - perhaps a snow day could be in my near future! If so, it might mean a lot more blogging about football tomorrow.

Finally, a hearty congrats to my sister who got engaged last week - I can't wait to welcome Pete, a big Pats fan, into the family.
