Happy Thanksgiving 2009 - November 30, 2009

Had a great holiday, hope the rest of you did, too.

Horrible football weekend for me. The Bears got slaughtered, which pretty much ends their hopes of a playoff berth. Went 0-2 in fantasy, getting killed by injuries in both leagues and made poor decisions in another. One of those weekends where I could barely watch last night's game (I actually only watched about 10 plays of it) but am forcing myself to watch most of tonight's game. Need a break from it this week and start back fresh next week I guess.

I seriously think that Andy Reid was playing against LeSean McCoy in his own fantasy league on Sunday. Why in the world would he run a rookie (Early Buckley?) with only 5 career carries twice from the 1 yard line to beat the Redskins? I smell conspiracy.

Vince Young and the Titans...never been a big fan of Vince Young's, but I'm a fan of his god-given talent and this Titans resurgence has been fun to watch.

I picked New England to win 37-31 tonight. Right now it's 7-3 Pats.

My only regret in not watching last night's game was missing Chris Collinsworth call the game last night, I've said it before but he's by far the best. It only comes to mind again because these guys on Monday night are such slurpers. Some guy named Earl Buckley could take off for a 20 yard run for his only carry of the game, and Gruden and Jaws would talk him up like he's Walter Payton. Tirico is good and he brings some sanity to the broadcast, but those other two never have a bad thing to say about anyone else. Strap on a pair, ladies.

I think Hines Ward needs to go away, shut the heck up, or perhaps both?

I think Jake Delhomme needs to go away, stop throwing horrible passes, or perhaps both?

I think Tim Tebow needs to just go away. Puke.

I'll probably watch the entire Oregon - Oregon State game on Thursday night, and not root for anyone. It will be fun to scout both teams, not really knowing who we will play. Can't remember the last time this happened, but it should be fun.

Have a great week. Hard to believe it's December already. We're all getting old. At least we're doing it together.
