Can Christian Ponder solve the Chicago defense? Which defense gives an inch in that highly anticipated Seattle-San Francisco game? Will that “must start against” option emerge in Week 2? Fantasy Football Rankings powered by FantasyPros

The calendar flipped to August today. As a result, it’s time to start doling out the fantasyland goodness here on SwollenDome.com. Over the next several days, you will be inundated with talk of Ninjas (Sleepers, if you must), Flops, Breakthrough Heroes and a mountain of statistics. The time has come to pave the road to […]

Peyton Manning is running through his “Free Agent World Tour,” and the list of would-be suitors have lined up around the block. The Broncos, Dolphins and Cardinals have gotten a ton of ink, but you still have the Titans, Texans, Seahawks and several others floating around. I remember folks tossing around the concept of a […]

Millions of people sat in front of their televisions awaiting the annual unveiling of the NCAA Men’s Tournament bracket. I decided to sit this one out. I’d already experienced several days of uninterrupted “Bracketology,” watched countless games across myriad conferences and waded through blogs, columns and video analysis while preparing for my Sunday morning radio […]

Where should Peyton Manning set up shop in 2012?

It was a foregone conclusion. At least, we all assumed that the release of Peyton Manning by the Colts was inevitable. I suppose there was some sliver of hope among the most ardent Manning fans that he and the Colts would find some common ground in terms of a reduced salary for a year or […]

Normally, I’m rolling through stats and poring through numbers to break down the NFL. I’m stepping back for a second to put the spotlight on former Northwestern standout Jason Wright, who took the road less traveled. Wright turned down a contract offer from the Cardinals to head to business school and prepare for the next […]

Arizona fans were obviously thrilled to hear the news that the Cardinals and star wideout Larry Fitzgerald had come to terms on a monstrous new contract. Unfortunately, that raucous enthusiasm was tempered on Friday night against Green Bay when second-round pick Ryan Williams was lost for the year with a ruptured patella tendon in his […]

Patrick Peterson out of LSU was selected fifth overall by Arizona. He teams with Antonio Rodgers-Cromartie to form a very interesting tandem. He may have been the player on the board. Peterson will work against Larry Fitzgerald day in and day out. There’s no better “trial by fire” opportunity on the board. Next up: Cleveland […]

I shan’t write a lengthy analysis here. Those who watched Brad Childress’ press conference (check my earlier post for a link) couldn’t understand the lack of energy, enthusiasm or anything resembling positivity from the Vikings’ coach. Much has been written about this comeback and Favre’s effort to put Minnesota back into the win column. And, […]

In the past couple weeks, I’ve been taking lessons from the neighborhood kids on scrawling in fingerpaint, sidewalk chalk and crayons. The goal: a massive quasi-letter, picture art campaign to draw future Hall of Famer Kurt Warner back onto the football field. Instead, it was announced early this week that Warner would trade dancing in […]

On March 12th, I had a chance to catch up with Jon Bloom to discuss the exodus from the desert. The Cardinals have lost a number of big-time playmakers at the beginning of free agency (and a huge trade). What’s on tap for 2010? Bloom also expresses his “man-crush” on Edwin Jackson and gets fired […]
