Broncos drama and free agency signings

Oh my Broncos. Such drama this weekend! I don't even know where to start but I guess Cutler as potential trade bait is probably the biggest story followed by Brandon Marshall's latest arrest and of course free agent pickups like Brian Dawkins and Correll Buckhalter. So let's just get right to it - I love my Broncos, I love Cutler and yes, he can come off as a bit of a whiner...but is there any possible way Cassel was worth that trade for the Broncos? Negatory, good buddy, so I just don't buy that the Broncos were really giving it much consideration at all. I'm siding with Gregg Rosenthal on this one and assuming that it will blow over fairly soon, but now there's the Marshall news, too; how will this affect Marshall, Cutler and/or Royal's fantasy value for 2009? It's like deja vu here...

The Olympic Curling Trials were awesome - I'll get some photos and such up tomorrow, I hope, but I've gotta say that it was actually one of the more dramatic finishes to a sporting event that I've been to in a long time. There are 10 ends (kind of like innings), which was probably 4 or 5 too many for my taste, but the decision of which team moved on to the Olympics came down to the very last play in the last end when a seemingly seasoned player totally choked and missed a shot that I bet he would've made 9 times out of 10 in any other setting. Crazy curling! The rest of the weekend was filled with snowshoeing, practice field goal kicking and other fun stuff with my bro-in-law who is here visiting us in Colorado. I'm kind of hoping he'll get snowed in and not be able to make it back to his home in Atlanta on time - he's a good time.

I am going on the record regarding Matt Cassel - 2009 will NOT be a repeat of 2008. The KC O-line is not that good - and KC is a young team in a rebuilding phase.

He'll be picked way too high in most fantasy drafts - he's not QB1 material.

I *might* pick him up in round 13 or later, but certainly not earlier than that.

Last year cassle put my team through the furthest i been in my league's playoff's . next year i won't touch him with a ten foot pole! even if he is there in round 13! Upchuck is too good at what he does and cassel was merely another cog. I'm eying Taylor this year... hope no one else is!
