Remember, the Vikings, Steelers, Redskins and Buccaneers take their Bye this week. Last week was a mess in terms of “Straight Up” selections. As I went to click “Submit” and noticed I’d made an inordinately large number of road selections, there was a sinking feeling. That occurred well in advance of the Thursday Night Football [...]

Before jumping a plane to host a huge “Breaking Bad” series finale party at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles, Aaron Paul paid a visit to “Saturday Night Live.” Tina Fey returned to host the season premiere of the Saturday night staple, and the cold open featured a bit about health care, including testimonials [...]

Rusher

I’m going against the prevailing sentiment that the arrival of “The Raider Rusher” was a bad idea. The NFL helped produce a cartoon. They wanted to bring their players and the league to children. There had to be a line of toys and elements to be sold, right? Hell, I’ve seen team-licensed ZOMBIE figures in [...]

I always preach patience in fantasyland. The knee-jerk reactions of fantasy owners to slow starts or muted single performances leave you with whiplash. Where possible, you keep a bench slot available to rotate out emerging players, stash a flier running back or pick up that spot-play defense. But, I’m already seeing huge churn on the [...]

Last week, Anquan Boldin dominated the Packers and piled up targets and receptions. Boldin was virtually erased from the box score in Week 2 by Richard Sherman as the Seahawks smashed their division rival. The lasting images from the Week 2 opener between the Patriots and Jets were Tom Brady berating his receivers and Julian [...]

Chuck Pagano announced that versatile running back Vick Ballard sustained a torn right ACL and will be placed on injured reserve. Ahmad Bradshaw (eight touches for 33 yards in Week 1) and former first-round pick Donald Brown will split the workload in Ballard’s absence. Brown averaged 4.7 yards per carry in the preseason, but he’s [...]

You can only take a short breath before the next week creeps up on you. It seems like just mere moments ago that we were unwrapping the 2013 fantasy football season and treating those first snaps like a new toy at Christmas. We then watched the madness unfold with the Eagles and Redskins flying around [...]

Week 2 is revving up with the Patriots and Jets on the board for the Thursday night. Can Tom Brady find the magic against a solid New York pass defense? What do you do with Colin Kaepernick and Russell Wilson in a tough head-to-head matchup? I’m eager to see the follow-up effort produced by Terrelle [...]

Earlier this week, the video of an abbreviated press conference with UCLA head coach Jim Mora made the rounds on the internet. While addressing the death of 20-year-old redshirt freshman receiver Nick Pasquale, a media member in the session answered a phone call. Mora rightly left the session following the interruption. He later addressed the [...]

The NFL kicked off the 2013 season with a high-scoring, wild affair in Denver. Peyton Manning posted a game for the ages, ripping apart a tired and over-matched Baltimore defense. The game played even for a half prior to Michael Oher’s injury, and the surgeon-like Manning went to work. Naturally, Harmon was quick to reach [...]

It’s time to get it on. Each and every week, I’ll be rolling up my pick – Straight Up and Against The Spread – here on the Dome. After a long and often maddening offseason, the kickoff to the NFL season is finally here. The Ravens host the Broncos … in Denver … for the [...]

I’ll offer a few thoughts on Johnny Manziel and the first weekend of the 2013 college football campaign. This week’s Fantasy Man-Crush features a daring 64-year-old woman. You’ve likely heard the tale of Diana Nyad at this point, but perhaps you couldn’t push past Jameis Winston’s Monday night performance or the incessant ranting about Manziel. [...]

We love inspirational speeches. There’s no question about it. From the time we first grab a glove to hit the diamond, buckle a chinstrap or sit down in the classroom, we’re looking to be inspired. Coaches, teachers and parents work to find the proper words to elevate our performance and keep us on the path [...]
