Packer Fans Basically Dress as Cheese | Fantasy Football Sleepers

Last night on Football Jabber Radio we had Adam, the football loving Brit that is taking in 35 NFL games around the country. It’s funny to hear an Englishman’s assessment of how Packer fans basically dress up as cheese. Poor guy didn’t know where he was, turns out he is in North Eastern Oregon heading to Vegas (there isn’t a football team in Vegas so whatever could he be up to?). NFL Recaps and Fantasy Football too!

Show Notes:

3:00-We get Mike in the house and rolling. Discussion of some of the big games from last week including the Broncos/Chargers fiasco, the Vikings disappointment against the Colts, and more…

Favre could stay…or go

The annual Brett Favre retirement talk in the press is starting early, in Detroit. It would be cool to see him come back..I guess. If they could advance further and every AFC city fell of the face of the earth so he could get one more Super Bowl ring.

I have to say I’m pulling for the guy to get one more ring as I have mentioned before. But it would suck for me to devote so much pulling for this season ( with my Saints being crap) if he is just going to keep coming back. this is about me Brett, not you.

“If last season gave me hope, if I felt optimistic after our Chicago game last year at 8-8 and not making the playoffs, sure, I obviously have to feel a little bit better — especially individually,” Favre said.

Still, Favre made it clear that nothing is assured.

“If the season was over today, I could look in a mirror and say, ’You can play. You don’t have to say I think I can. You know you can,’” Favre said. “Now, with each year — and it’d be 18 years — there’s a lot of factors that go into decision-making now that I never thought I’d have to make at five years. Never thought I would be playing at 17 years, or would be dealing with some of the things I have to deal with. We have a daughter in college, we have one in the third grade and physically, for the most part I feel fine. I don’t do some of the things I used to do quite as well. And I have to envision next year that would be a little bit worse.”

Pats, Schmats/First Games don’t disappoint!

tspbabe_skins2.jpgAll the talk going into this week was of course dominated by the Colts/Patriots game.  The early games however did not disappoint today.  I could not think of a better way to pass the time until the game of the year than watching some kickass football today.  Record breaking stuff, Baby!

  • Adrian Peterson is pretty good.  Damn!  It took a horsecollar tackle to stop him from a 4th TD but not before a 35 yard pickup in the 4th quarter.   Brad Childress  took him out for a play but put him back in to break an NFL record for yards in a game (unless for some reason it’s revised after I post this).  296 yards and three TD’s!  Even his fumble play was a kick ass run!
  • As a Saints fan I can honestly say that I did not picture them ever seeing .500 this season after the start they had.  Drew Brees looks like the guy we thought he was.  445 yards, 3 TD’s and takes a knee for the win to work against his rushing yards.
  • Brett Favre still amazes me.  Off his back foot he chucks it downfield to Greg Jennings for a TD that would make for the sixth lead change today against the Chiefs…and the last score really needed to get his first win EVER against the Chiefs.  He now joins Tom Brady and Peyton Manning as QB’s that have beat all 31 other teams in the league.  7-1 Brett, keep going!
  • Wasn’t Cincy supposed to be good coming into this year?  Another one of those things to justy shake your head at I guess.  Buffalo’s Marshawn Lynch ran for 153 yards and a TD.  Not bad for a rookie, huh?

Well, Colts and Pats are on…supposed to be a good game.  I’m going to go check that out.  Happy football day!
