Quote of the day
"It wasn't 59 points against our starters, it was 59 points overall." -- Indianapolis Colts head coach Jim Caldwell, rationalizing a 59-24 preseason loss in Green Bay
Preseason NFL games are often deadly to watch, but the two games last night certainly provided some entertainment, with more than 70 points scored in each game. This may even turn out to be the season highlight for the Rams, who scored 36 in a one point win over the Pats in Foxborough.
On the flip side, if you already have Rams receiver Donnie Avery on your team (either as a keeper or due to an early draft), last night was not so enjoyable. Avery was carted off the field with a knee injury, and while details are still sketchy, the early word is not encouraging. Injuries are always a key part of every fantasy team’s success, but it still sucks when it hits before the season gets underway.
It looks like divorced life is agreeing with Tiger Woods, at least on the course, sharing the first round lead in The Barclays tournament. The folks at CBS Sports must be doing high-fives, as – barring a second round meltdown – this should prop up the weekend TV ratings significantly.
