Sirius Business: The Cleveland Wildcats?

Believe it or not, there is still an NFL team in Cleveland, and Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer is one of the reporters covering the Browns there. She spoke with Matt Camp and me on Sirius XM Fantasy Football this past weekend about the Browns, and the outlook for the 2010 season with new team president Mike Holmgren at the helm.

Mary Kay Cabot covers the Browns for the Cleveland Plain-Dealer (@MaryKayCabot on Twitter):

Cabot told us what we presumed: rookie Montario Hardesty was supposed to be the team’s feature back, but the sprained knee he suffered early in camp has caused him to miss about all of training camp. That’s a blow for the Browns’ plans. They absolutely need Hardesty to get back on the field and get some live reps before they entrust a big role to him. However, Hardesty has used the time off to brush up on the playbook, attend meetings, and get the mental aspect of his reps down, so Cabot thinks he isn’t as far behind as he possibly could be. Cabot doesn’t know if he’s capable of being on the field come Week One in the capacity the Browns envisioned, but he is [...]

Sirius Business: Cardinal Rules

This weekend on Sirius XM Fantasy Football, fellow senior writer Matt Camp and I were inundated with calls (which we love), so we really did not have much time for the guests that have populated the show in recent weeks. Still, we had space for our pal Kent Somers, who joined us to talk some Cardinals, and how the 2008 NFC Champs are moving on without future HOF QB Kurt Warner.

Kent covers the Cards for the Arizona Republic (@kentsomers on Twitter):

Of course, we knew that the Cardinals would be suffering a downgrade at QB without Warner, no matter who took the job. Right now, it’s apparent that Matt Leinart has done nothing to lose the job that was assumed his in the first place. Leinart has had some shaky practices according to Somers, but Somers admits Leinart may just look “bad” because Warner has been the model of consistency over the last few years. While up and down, Leinart has had some good days recently, and that’s more than can be said for veteran Derek Anderson, who was brought in to back up (and maybe push) Leinart. Anderson has more pure physical ability than Leinart, but his inaccuracy has to [...]

Sirius Business: More T.O. and the Pats’ Passing Game

Of course, mere hours after I posted the last Sirius Business, WR Terrell Owens officially signed with Cincinnati, rendering most of what I wrote completely out of style. So naturally, we invited our good friend Joe Reedy back to Sirius XM Fantasy Football discuss what impact T.O. has had in his first week as a Bengal. Also, we found some time to talk about the Pats’ passing game.

Joe Reedy covers the Bengals for the Cincinnati Enquirer (@joereedy on Twitter):

Reedy reiterated that QB Carson Palmer was definitely behind the move to add Owens, and his support was absolutely

No doubt about it: Carson is pumped for T.O.'s arrival

reinforced as soon as Owens first practiced with the team. Since Owens has arrived, the atmosphere at training camp has been as expected: a ton of excitement, with exceptionally loud cheers for Owens and his fellow star, Chad Ochocinco. Reedy noted that the media hasn’t even mentioned the Bengals’ defense has been completely ignored recently, and that’s what carried the team last year. It’s amazing what a guy with Owens’ gravitas can accomplish. Reedy commented that Owens was already working out with the team after being in town for fewer than three hours. He [...]

    Here are all the story lines I’m following for fantasy in Week Seven.  N.Y. Jets (1-5) at New England (4-2)  Who will carry the load at RB for the Patriots? You’d have to think this week it will be Brandon Bolden, since James White is inactive and Jonas Gray was just signed off the practice squad today and is active. Can Bandon LaFell keep it up and emerge a […]
