Quote of the day
"We lost the first game of year last year and finished 13-3. So there's no doubt that we can do it and we have the mentality and the guys to do it." -- Saints QB Drew Brees, after an opening 40-32 home loss to Washington
The NFL season is not quite the marathon that the MLB and NBA seasons are, but if your team (or fantasy team) started off poorly, Drew Breesí quote should give you hope.
We always tend to exaggerate the impact of outsized performances in week #1. So if you drafted guys like Robert Griffin III or C.J. Spiller or Randall Cobb, itís natural to feel a sense of exhilaration. Just remember that itís only one week, and they could all be injured by next Sunday. Oh wait Ė I have all three on my RIFC team! This will probably turn out to be my peak result of the season. But Iím not complaining!
Iím in the process of reviewing all of my football stats processing, and hope to have points and sortable stats updated by later today. By tomorrow morning, I hope to have everything working. Until then, assume that any apparent anomalies are still ďwork in progress.Ē
In GuruGolf, Rory McIlroy has become a beast. Five GuruGolf teams tied for the top weekend bestball score of -51, and itís not surprising that all have team values of at least $5000, as it seems like the high priced golfers generally dominated this week. Three teams tied for worst ball honors (+48) as well, with less lofty team values. Weíre now down to the final week of GuruGolf, but we have to wait an extra week to put a ribbon on the season, as the Tour Championship doesnít start until September 20.
