Mock NFL Draft & Other Football Info

I'm part of a mock NFL draft that The Hazean is putting together - I will be drafting for the Broncos in just a few more days and am waiting patiently as those ahead of me in in the draft make their selections (we each have a 12 hour window). I already have some pretty solid thoughts on the positions and players that I think the Broncos need most, but if there are any big Broncos fans out there that would like to put their two cents in, please feel free to comment below with your thoughts.

More info from the football world:
  • Speaking of the Broncos, will DJax be coming on over to Denver? Check out the Denver Post's Two Wide Receivers Attract Denver's Eye for more info.
  • I've become a bit of PDF snob - whenever I see something is available in PDF, I immediately assume it must be cooler and better. Terrible logic, yes, but this actually holds true for the Official 2007 NFL Statistics PDF available from Cold, Hard Football Facts. If you had told me last August that the Top Ten Rushers for the 2007 season would include The Edge and Jamal Lewis, I would've called you a liar.
  • One of my favorite sites, Fantasy Football Xtreme (so extreme they don't need that extra E), has redesigned their site a bit - take a look around and check out their Fantasy Football Player Spotlights. Nice work, Xtreme; I like the new site.
More to come later this week!

Have fun drafting.
I am just itching for the release of the 2008 schedule. I need to know times and dates for these games.

Now that they threw an extra game in on Thanksgiving day (to be broadcast on NFL network) it hampers me making Thankgiving travel arrangements.

If they are playing the Steelers Thanksgiving day I think my husband will have a stroke that 1. He will have to sell his tickets and 2. It will be the first Steelers game in 10 years (since the Browns returned to Cleveland) that he hasn't gone to the game.

Regardless, he informed me if the Browns have a game on Thanksgiving day we have to buy a Slingbox because my parents don't have the NFL Network.

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
