Week 1 (Thur/Sun) Game Thoughts

THE SURPRISES

  • DARREN MCFADDEN – RB – @TEN : 18CAR 95YDS 6REC 55YDS 1 TD
  • MATT MOORE – QB – @NYG : Throwing 3 ints and completed only 14 passes, shows lack of WR’s in Carolina or is it him?
  • JONATHAN STEWART – RB – @NYG : gave fantasy owners 1.2 points for his 5car 12yd performance. Coach Fox give this guy the ball!
  • MATT SCHAUB – QB – vsIND : 9 completions! really? well run game was hot, but still, we drafted Schaub as our QB1!
  • AUSTIN COLLIE – WR – @HOU : fantastic game that was probably wasted on your bench or on the waiver wire / 10rec 131yds 1td
  • ANDRE JOHNSON – WR – vsIND : ladies and gentlemen your #1 WR / 3rec 33yds 0td … really? Schaubs game explains it but this is your 1st rounder you drafted.
  • BOB SANDERS – S – @HOU : possbility out for the season, again? wait im not surprised its actually looked forward too. INDY time to get a new saftey.
  • MIKE SIMS-WALKER – WR – vsDEN :  0 rec 0 yds 0 tds (milk carton)
  • ATLANTA FALCONS : dark horse superbowl pick? you cant get there by only scoring 9 points! where’s the offense?
  • CJ Spiller – RB – vsMIA : 7carries 6yards 4rec 8yards … productive?
  • Paul Posluszny – LB – vsMIA : suffers yet another knee injury early in the season, IDP owners are frustrated
  • MATTHEW STAFFORD – QB – @CHI : suffers a shoulder injury on his non-throwing shoulder and expected to miss 2-6 weeks? not good for Detroit nor Stafford nor Calvin owners, once again, curse?
  • MATT FORTE – RB – vsDET : his receiving numbers were just ridiculous, 7rec 151yds 2tds (its what we expected from Andre or Randy)
  • JEROME HARRISON – RB – @TBB : only 9 carries in a close game, really Mangini?
  • EARNEST GRAHAM – RB – vsCLE : received 6 carries, Huggins received ZERO
  • THE ENTIRE SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS SQUAD : so much hype going into the season, yet only manage to score 6 points against a weaker opponent?
  • FRANK GORE – RB – @SEA : with an improved OLINE and focus on him, only managed 38yds? those who picked you at 4 or beyond are “thrilled” to have you
  • MICHAEL CRABTREE – WR – @SEA : 2 rec 12 yds .. need i say more?
  • JULIUS JONES – RB – vsSF : received 8 carries, why? compared too …
  • LEON WASHINGTON – RB – vsSF : only receiving 2 carries? Carrol what are you doing??
  • AARON RODGERS – QB – @PHI : 188yds 2td/2int – not what we expected but like last year, he started off slow and picked up the pace
  • MICHAEL VICK – QB – vsGBP : thought i was watching Vick circa 2004! Welcome Back! 100+yds passing 100+yds rushing!
  • TIM HIGHTOWER – RB – @STL : could only manage 54yards on 13carries
  • STEVE BREASTON – WR – @STL : shocked me by outperforming FITZ!
  • LARRY FITZGERALD – WR – @STL : 15 targets 3 receptions … you figure out the reasons behind that
  • MARK CLAYTON – WR – vsARI : 10 rec 119yds … where was this in BAL?
  • DALLAS COWBOYS : proclaimed NFC representer in the SuperBowl with high-octane offense, indeed this high-octane offense scored just 7 points
  • HAKEEM NICKS – WR – vsCAR : 4 receptions 3 touchdowns, do we have a star in the making? Eli’s new favorite target? Nicks can catch anything coming his way!
  • JERMICHAEL FINLEY – TE – @PHI : sought out to be fantasys #1 TE, yet only managed 4rec 47yds

THE OBVIOUS

  • PEYTON MANNING : just went about his business
  • CHRIS JOHNSON : justified his RB1 spot and/or #1 draft pick status just fine
  • OCHO CINCO : guess he’s focused after all
  • TOM BRADY : Brady’s back at it again, expecting huge year from him
  • VINCE YOUNG : seriously this guys theme song should be “all i do is win”
  • MILES AUSTIN : whoever thought he was a 1 yr wonder needs to look in the mirror and check yourself
  • WES WELKER : didnt he just suffer a knee injury and wasnt supposed to be playing?
  • RODDY WHITE : just another day at the job, easily should top 100 receptions
  • REGGIE WAYNE : nothing to worry about here, he’s a WR1 now till week 15
  • ARIAN FOSTER : ok its not the “OBVIOUS” but he was due to have a big game, unpredictable on how huge the game was going to be, stock rising!
  • MICHAEL TURNER : had a feeling he was going to have a horrible game, dude just doesnt bode well against strong defenses, check back to his 08′ season all his spectacular numbers came against weak rush defense teams.
  • BRETT FAVRE : yes he looks old, but i give him credit
  • PIERRE THOMAS : was gone in the 1st half, appeared in the 2nd half and looks like he can produce potentially top 10 numbers
  • SAINTS DEFENSE : again looking good in the beginning of the season, suspect front 7 will haunt them though
  • T.O. : revival?

With Sunday in the books i look forward to the 2 big Monday Night Football games, all this Jets hype needs to be put to rest and Ravens can do that! Also looking forward to my Chargers putting in work against the Chiefs, but also pulling for Jamaal Charles to have a Foster-Like game either way from a fantasy perspective and realist all i ask is for exciting games, and one last thing, Boldin put in work on Revis! Revis isnt welcome in Boldinville!
