Some Days You Feel Like A Nut

    Dez Bryant flips out on some reporters? What else is new? Did he really say something about “ghetto?” We didn’t think so.
    Despite losing 6 in a row, Cowboys are on a roll.

Top 5 Fantasy Football Quartebacks In 2015


    Getting a top-tier quarterback in fantasy football is pretty important for most players. The very best can be counted on just about every single week, as they don’t have bad matchups like some of the others. They definitely come with a pretty high price tag, but here is a look at the top five to target in 2015.

    Aaron Rodgers
    The Green Bay Packers were able to talk Randall Cobb into staying in town, so that means Rodgers has a chance to pretty much play 2015 with his favor targets back. That is scary news for everyone else in the NFL. Rodgers will use Cobb and Jordy Nelson pretty frequently, but he will also look at his running back Eddie Lacy as well as other targets throughout the year. He is generally considered the best quarterback in the game right now, and his fantasy football numbers back that up.

    Andrew Luck
    Luck took a huge leap in 2014, as he officially entered the top tier of talent at the quarterback position. As we get ready for 2015, he could very well be even better. The Indianapolis Colts have done a very good job of rebuilding Luck1 their team on the fly. They now have some of the best receivers in the NFL, and veteran Andre Johnson in particular is going to be huge for Luck in fantasy football. Eventually, Luck is the guy most likely to take over for Rodgers as the best quarterback in the NFL.

    Peyton Manning
    It is pretty obvious that Manning is starting to slow down at quarterback. However, it just goes to show how dominant he is when he is still considered a top five fantasy football quarterback at such an advanced age. The Denver Broncos have done whatever possible to make sure he has sufficient targets to throw the ball to. He might be one hit away from a major injury, but his numbers can’t be denied.

    Russell Wilson
    People don’t really view him as a top-tier quarterback yet, but he has a chance to be pretty good in 2015 as far as fantasy football is concerned. He is somebody who works very hard at his craft, and he has a new weapon in Jimmy Graham to utilize this season at the tight end position. He enters the top five for the first time in his career.

    Drew Brees
    The man who just lost Jimmy Graham as a target still stays in the top five simply because he throws the ball so often. The New Orleans Saints are built around him, and he is going to get a chance to put up huge numbers. He is starting to get up there in age, but he is pretty significantly better in fantasy football compared to the like of Ben Roethlisberger, Cam Newton, Matt Ryan and any other challenger for that No. 5 spot.

Instant Karma?



We can hear the Lions roaring all the way to Cali.
It’s a catch in our book. But according to the NFL’s funked up rule, it ain’t. Cowboys’ fans will be screaming about this for years. Still, it ain’t got shit on the “Tuck Rule,” which cost the Raiders a Super Bowl. The talking heads at ESPN frequently forget this when anointing Tom Brady as the greatest of all time.
Too bad we won’t get a rematch between the Cowboys and the team formerly known as the SeaChickens because the Packers are going to get smoked in Seattle.

What Are The Odds?

Silver Bullet Cans Donald Sterling


    You can’t change a person’s heart, but you can take away his power.
    NBA Commissioner Adam Silver was right to put the hammer down on Clippers Owner Donald Sterling.
    The lifetime ban, heavy fine and attempt to ultimately force him to lose his team were not only well within Silver’s powers, but also in the best interest of the league.
    Let’s face it though, this was an easy call for Silver.
    Sterling teed him up for the big hit by spewing his racial venom.
    The only way Silver didn’t gain total support was to do not enough.
    However, Silver set the right tone with his voice, stating not only his professional but personal outrage toward Sterling.
    Of all our professional sports leagues, race plays out largest in the NBA. It is a league that for the most part was built on the dollars of rich, older white males and the sweat of young black men.
    That alone leads to trust issues.

    But that was the old NBA, 1 that had more Sterlings leading teams then we would ever like to admit.
    Granted, not all of them are gone, but the younger owners and wiser players have filled voids left by some of the old guard who have seen their time pass.
    That’s why it was important that Silver not only hand down punishment but also send a loud message clear to all — that the NBA is not going back in time but rather continuing to move forward.
    This is not a black and white issue. This is a right and wrong issue.
    Sterling was wrong. Silver got it right.
    Then again Silver had to do this.
    He had to send a message to the players that he was on their side. He had to send a message to the sponsors that he is going to hear their cries.
    Sterling will get his money when the team is finally sold. The rich always get richer. But it is important to note that the rest of the league is a winner.
    The ironic thing in all this is that more than any team in Los Angeles, the Clippers reflected the face of the city.
    Having covered sports in L.A. for 2 decades, I can tell you no team had a more diverse crowd than the Clippers.
    The very people Sterling violated with his vomit are the ones that made him rich.
    Now comes the tough questions: Are we going to hold all parties up to such standards?
    Kobe Bryant was only fined for his anti-gay slur last year during a game. Could he now be banned for a lifetime since the precedent has been set?
    If the NBA is going to become the moral sports leader he must next time.
    But that is a different story for a different time.
    Now we know that Adam Silver understands what is right and what is wrong. He understood that allowing Sterling to stay would set the league back at least 35-40 years.
    We all know times have changed, the world has changed and the games we play have changed.
    It is good to see that Silver understands that and is willing to make sure his league is really ready to change.
    No, you can’t change the hatred one spews from his mouth, but you sure can take away his microphone.
    Sterling’s silence will be golden.

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

Cowboys Bears Football


On a night they honored No. 89, Dallas got 86ed by the Bears.
It’s a balmy 40 degrees in the LBC as I write this. But it’s much colder in Chicago, where the Bears played Mr. Freeze to the reeling Cowboys.
Jerry Jones said a week ago Jason Garrett would return next season as coach. You buying that nonsense? Didn’t think so. But we all know Jerry is drinking a higher grade of Kool-Aid than we are.
Rob Ryan was the scapegoat a year ago, but Monte Kiffin’s defense has more holes in it than Josh Heupel’s playcalling. So of course Jerry was singing a tune about how the defense needs to improve despite only 104 yards passing by Tony Romo.
