Shanahan Gets the Boot

Wow. I simply cannot believe what just happened - Mike Shanahan was just fired as the Broncos head coach and director of football operations. I've been sitting here for about 30 minutes now trying to wrap my mind around this craziness. I am not a fan of this decision at all but now may the speculations begin...

I know, CK0712! It's a nation of confused football fans right now. I'll be sure to check back with your blog ( - great site and extremely timely news) for more info after tomorrow's press conference!

Regardless of whether one agrees with Shanahan's dismissal, we should all be happy from a fantasy perspective... no more of those random running back shenanigans! (though obviously it was a necessity this year)

Just to dispel any speculation... I'm not considering the job.

That's pretty crazy, as it seems like he was doing a pretty good job grooming the diabetic wonder. Though "D" has been an issue under his tenure, so I wonder if ownership is looking to go with somebody that will shore up that side of the ball.

There's this consolation... they're not the Chiefs. *sigh*

Shanahan has been donking it up hard in the AFC West since Elway retired. I think it would be truly awesome if they managed to convince Shottenheimer to coach the donkeys.

Well buy looking into the past couple of drafts (Clady, Eddie, Marshall) that Denver has had it appears that they have some people in place in the front office who can step in and find talent on the Offensive side of the ball. Now can they find some Defensive players? Who else can handle the zone blocking scheme?

Here in NE the talk is of course Cassel, Pioli, & McDaniels and take some enjoyment from the misfortunes of the JESTS and Brett FRAUD. Good chance that Pioli goes to Cleveland seems to be a good fit although not sure that McDaniels (Canton, Ohio guy) goes with him but if he does don’t be surprised if Martz ends up as the new OC in NE. Other likely candidates to be HC if Pioli goes to Browns – Ferentz (HC Iowa), Pat Hill (HC Fresno State), maybe the Man – Genius but think he might end up as the DC.

Labor Day FF links

Happy long weekend! Here's hoping most of you are free to enjoy the 3-day weekend and the relaxation and fun that comes with it. I spent my Sunday participating in 3 fantasy football drafts scattered throughout the day and night, but I think I've finally wrapped up my drafts for the year. So like many of you I'm now turning my attention to the Week 1 games! But before we get to some player rankings and prep for Week 1, I want to make sure that all you experts out there are aware of the upcoming deadline for the annual accuracy contest that I run with the Fantasy Sports Trade Association. I compare preseason positional rankings from experts to the final outcome of the fantasy season to see which site had the most accurate preseason rankings, and this year's deadline is fast approaching: September 9th by kickoff. Check out the info on the FSTA site for more details and be sure to e-mail me your submissions. Now, onto Week 1! First up, let's get to some of this

2010 Week 2 consensus start/sit

I've got this week's consensus start/sit for you which is a tally of all the start/sit votes that players received in the various start/sit articles that I linked to earlier in the week.

QB Start: Michael Vick, Kyle Orton, Matt Ryan, Jason Campbell Sit: David Garrard, Alex Smith, Jay Cutler, Vince Young, Carson Palmer RB Start: LeSean McCoy, Darren McFadden, Ahmad Bradshaw, Brandon Jackson Sit: Tim Hightower, C.J.

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
