The choice at DT seems clear

After the results of our site poll, the Minnesota Viking Defense is the DT to get #1.

It’s really hard to argue, too, given what we saw last year, the addition of DE Jared Allen (the best pass rushing DE in the league), and their incredible nose for the endzone. They also have a good schedule.

Now, you may not want to be the first person to take a DT, and I can see why. I haven’t taken them yet, so the question is, who is this year’s sleeper or surprise defense. We have a long history of finding the value defense, and we were on the Vikings and Packers last year pretty good.

    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 […]
