C'Mon Cowboys

3-1 is so much better than 2-2 at this stage, we know you can do it!

Cowboys' offensive line is gonna be the key to this game. Having already faced three fierce tests against the G-Men, the Seahawks, and most importantly the vicious Bucs, we know the Bears D-line is also one of the best. It's not gonna get any easier with this schedule, either. After the week-5 bye, we have to visit the Ravens in Baltimore! Ouch. Let's all say a little prayer now that we see Romo alive & well for week-7's game in Carolina.

Drafting a Fantasy QB Early

Via / Source

This was a cool graphic I found - making the point that most fantasy football owners who drafted top QBs early are likely to be losing this season.

Updating this graphic with week-3's stats, Rodgers had about 8 in week-3 against the Seahawks. In week-3 of 2011 (and I have no idea why this is N/A in the graphic to begin with), Rodgers had about 24.

So the graphic is, in fact very accurate - in that if you drafted a top-5 or top-6 QB this year, you are likely not winning much so far this year.

I tried to get Cam Newton in most leagues, but I wound up getting Michael Vick. After the season I had last year (waiting a long time to draft a QB) I wasn't about to do it again. Trying to get Vick was still pretty early (probably 6th or 7th QB drafted), and he's got 9 turnovers through 3 games. The league in which I have been starting Romo is 3-0.

If you waited for a QB this season (unlike most seasons) you are probably doing very well.

This is a travesty! I'm willing to bet we've just seen the last of these stupid replacement refs.. Goodell has got to mandate these owners pay the refs what they want, and get on with it. It was already ridiculous before this MNF game - the way this one was called has got to make it clear as day to Goodell. Oh, and give the Packers this game in a monumental reversal.
