First Link Dump of the NFL Season


Bench/Start – Week 1 – The Bad Guy is back at Not Qualified To Comment and he’s here to tell us fantasy geeks who to start and who to sit for week 1. Show of hands; how many people had Cedric Benson as a better fantasy player than Larry Johnson three years ago?

Even NFL Films cannot spin the 0-16 Detroit Lions – If the Lions went o-16 in 2008 then NFL Films didn’t know it. In fact it looks like the historic season in the “D” might just have been skipped by Steve Sabol all together.

Unlocking the Mysteries of the BCS – The Chronicles of Scott breaksdown the mysterious elements that comprise the worst thing to happen to sports since the XFL. Honestly though, I’m a sucker for anything that references the caber toss. By far the best sporting event in the world.

Week One Fantasy Football Roundup – What else can you find on Sharapova’s Thigh besides the fingerprints of Eastern European hockey players? How about all the fantasy info you need with one click of the mouse, that’s what!

Blockbuster Trades are a Mixed Bag for the Raiders - Here is nice piece over at the Sacramento Bee that examines a few of the Raiders bigger trades over the years. Richard Seymour, you’ll be on this list one day whether you like it or not.

Who is the Worst Starting Running Back in the NFL? – You decide with this poll over on Style Points. Let’s just call this the Smush Parker award of the NFL.

Do You Like it in the Can? – If the purpose of this ad campaign was to sell more Bud Light Lime then I think we can safely go ahead and call this the ’08 Detroit Lions of marketing. Needless to say, Bud Lime was never going to be allowed in my house on Sundays to begin with, now anybody who even thinks of bringing it will be welcomed with a LeGarrette Blount to the jaw.
