The four RIFC football drafts are coming to a close, with three completed and the 4th set to wind up later today (I hope). Rationales for each pick in the RIFC are posted here, and a consolidated tabulation of the four drafts will be posted in the forum once the final draft is complete.
I plan to have Football Pickoff launched later today. The rules will be the same as in recent years. Registrations do not carry over from year to year, so you will need to reregister for 2011 – up to three entries per person.
J.J. Henry is the most popular GuruGolfer for this week’s Deutsche Bank Championship, no doubt owing more to his bargain price than his recent performance.

I will be away on a mission trip to Biloxi, Mississippi next week, so blurbs will be suspended until Sept. 12 – at which time NFL week #1 will be almost complete! Enjoy your long weekend, and then get ready for some football!
