Tom is Toppled and other Sunday highlights

My condolences to Patriots fans and Brady owners - I simply cannot believe that Tom Brady is out for the season. I keep checking and rechecking my multiple news sources to see if some new information has been revealed and that Brady is actually just a little hobbled for a week or two. I can't imagine a season without Brady; I wonder, will my sister wear her Brady jersey to work tomorrow out of homage?

In other news, Wee Willie Parker doesn't seem to be taking a backseat to Mendenhall, the Seattle defense was rather awful, Joe Flacco somehow had a better line than Carson Palmer (who expected that??), and Vince Young, Nate Burleson and Dallas Clark all suffered some sort of knee injury this week. Craziness and it's only Week 1, my friends. This is a great time to recommend Stephania Bell's blog on ESPN - she's a physical therapist who uses her expertise to make fantasy injury insights and is a great site to check out before making lineup decisions with your injured players.

Tomorrow night we're having friends over to celebrate the Monday Night Football doubleheader. Hopefully I won't be a total stress case over my fantasy teams (half of which aren't doing so well) since I think a hostess can't really be glued to her laptop...

And finally, for those of you who live in the Denver area, I think I might be on tv tonight. I was at home watching the Carolina vs. San Diego game when two guys from Fox came by to interview me. So at some point between 9 and 9:30 tonight I might be on tv talking about my blog.

Had Brady in 3 out of my 4 leagues... missed out on picking up M.Cassell in two. This is going to be a LOOOOOOONG season.

My team is not doing so well either unless Peyton starts scoring some TD's! I guess it is good they are behind since my opponent has Addai.

Great blog BTW!

I've been reading Stephanie's blog for a year now, great stuff.

Carson Palmer... no one ever expected that. He got a measly 5 points, luckily my opponent had Brady so it kinda evened out.

People are probably scrambling for Matt Cassell on the waivers now.

Hope to see you on TV! Good luck..

First the newspaper and now television. The networks will be calling soon. You are becoming a "Star-phanie" Bell.

Her blog is great. As is her contributions to the slate of ESPN podcasts.

I lost Brady in 2 out of 3 leagues. Those two leagues are ones where we are starting 2 QB's. Someone else got Cassell. I have an option to get either Damon Huard, Joe Flacco, or going with Jamarcus Russell.
