Consider purchasing a ticket aboard the Finley train

He has obviously been very frustrating for fantasy over the last 3-4 years, and it will surprise no one if that continues to be the case in 2013. However, the planets have aligned for Jermichael Finley this year and we absolutely have to take notice.

Obviously, the state of their receiving corps is something to focus on here.

    And here we are. Week One. Thursday Night Football. A damp, fall-like evening in the Northeast. The perfect evening to kickoff the NFL’s 50th SuperBowl Season. I’m not going to lie, I have some butterflies in my belly. Maybe it’s because I just deposited $500 into an account at Maybe it’s because I never […]
