Brady will be Big

If you somehow thought QB Tom Brady wasn’t all that, then consider Brady came very, very close to winning the Super Bowl this year, for the 4th time in six year, with Reche Caldwell and Jabar Gaffney as his top two receivers. I know the Pats didn’t even make the big game, but they could have easily pulled out a win in the AFC title game – and they would have creamed the Bears in the Big Game had they made it. Peyton Manning did win it, and I’m happy to give him credit, but he also could have easily lost that game to Brady’s Patriots, with Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne as his top two receivers.
Kind of puts Brady into perspective, doesn’t it?

Some may be more impressed by his impregnating (multiple) hot celebrity types, but I still can’t get over the fact that he was “this” close to winning another championship with such skank at receiver. Perhaps, when I’m over that, I’ll become catatonic once the reality of Brady’s ridiculous sex life sinks in.

If you’re loo […]

    Over the last week, we posted a poll asking you which RB sleeper candidate was at the top of your targets list. The results varied throughout the week and Falcon rookie RB Devonta Freeman led most of the way, but things certainly changed after a full week of preseason games:                           As you can see, the final results put 49er rookie RB Carlo […]

  • How the New Focus on Defensive Penalties may Affect IDP August 11, 2014
    FantasyGuru.com IDP Analyst Corby Yarbrough can be found on Twitter @Corby_Yarbrough. Not that there is anything we as IDP players can do about it, but I just needed to vent my grief that an already inconsistent aspect of fantasy football has the potential to drive us even a little more crazy in 2014. Week One of the NFL preseason is in the books, and if the […]
