Quote of the day
"It wasn't like another team was out there beating us. We were beating ourselves." -- SF RB Frank Gore, after the 49ers committed 4 turnovers in a 3-point loss to New Orleans
The first RotoHog Salary Cap price change went through last night, and at first blush, nothing looks out of line. Michael Vick and Arian Foster were the top gainers, up $690M and $650M in the premier game and $900M each in the Basic game. We also now have the first ownership data for those games. In the premier game, Foster tops that list by a wide margin, on 69% of all teams Ė more than twice as many as Vick. If Foster ever falters, watch out below!
The top Football Pickoff score this weekend was by Mike208, with 11 correct picks for 460 points. The Random Dart also posted one of its best weeks ever, with 11 correct picks for 367 points, which would have ranked #5 overall. That slate is a computer generated set of picks, giving each team a 50% chance of being selected. Sometimes the blind squirrel finds a lot of acorns.
Hopefully, all of the various football stats reports are correctly updated this morning. Itís likely that something, somewhere, is screwed up, however; please let me know if you see something that looks off. Itís much easier to fix things early in the season, before errors propagate from week to week.
