Seattle, we may have a problem

I’ve been a Matt Hasselbeck fan for quite some time, to a fault at times (he was one of my big sleepers of 2001, and he busted). I’ve also been enamored with the Seattle offense for a while, and with good reason. But I gotta say, I’m a little worried about this offense right now. Hasselbeck’s supporting cast seems to be slipping. The O-Line isn’t what is once was, RB Shaun Alexander is close to reaching the downside of his career, and his receiving corps is a little unsettled with that loser Jerramy Stevens gone. Stevens will be replaced by Marcus Pollard, and there is no way Pollard will give them the vertical threat down the seam Stevens did, so despite Stevens’ drops and issues, the Seahawks will miss him.

  • Fantasy Kickers and the New Extra-Point Rule May 20, 2015
    The long-rumored and predicted rule change in the NFL passed at the owners’ meetings this week – extra points are officially moving from the two-yard line to the 15, changing them from the near-automatic equivalent of a 19-yard field goal to a 33-yard kick. If a team wants to attempt a two-point conversion, the ball […]

  • MFL10 Review: May 15, 2015 May 15, 2015
    I recently finished up a #MFL10 draft that I put together with some of my followers on Twitter, a practice that Tom Brolley, Matt Camp, and I will be continuing throughout the summer with our friends at MyFantasyLeague.
