Some minor revenge for last year's championship game isn't particularly satisfying, but at least the Meerkats are off to a decent start.

Glad I was able to win with a mere 50 something points. Stupid me wasn't starting Peterson and Garcons, good for a combined 27 points. Also Vick did (as I almost expected) disappoint. I will probably start Luck, who is against the Vikings...and should be able to throw for a couple of TD's against the young Vikings secondary (and certainly will not throw 4 Int as Vick did).

Yes, I'm very disappointed with my combination of Michael Turner and Trent Richardson for RB2. I thought I potentially had two RB1 and one solid RB2, now they're both looking iffy. But at least Colston is healthy enough to play.

If anyone is interested in Alex Smith + one of those two RB, make me an offer with a solid RB.

If the patsies insist on pretending Welker doesn't exist... and CJ and McCoy play like this... its gonna be a long... long year.

Considering my best keeper was a tight end, I had no RB or QB worth keeping, and I was the last to draft a starting QB, I've already won more games than I probably should have.

Vox, when I saw your trade proposal, I couldn't help but think it was just like packaging together some sub-prime mortgages and giving it a AAA rating.

Are there any ex-Bear Sterns hedge fund managers in our league? Maybe they'll go for it.

Look on the bright side Vox, I managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

Richardson will turn around, he's a beast, I would keep him. Turner is on the downside anyway. But I would consider a Toby Gerhardt / Alex Smith trade. I need a reliable QB badly.

Of course, Toby is worthless until Peterson breaks down.

And I hope Peyton finds Decker in the end-zone.

Still, if I win such games, the league is mine.

Richardson won't turn around for a while, is my guess (5 more weeks or so), before he even has a chance to show what he can do. He had surgery last month and missed some important time, and plays for the Browns.

In the best case scenario, Colt McCoy takes over at least until Weeden figures out why he sucks, and that means more passing, not less. In the worst, Weeden doesn't improve and stays in, allowing defenses to do the one relatively easy thing against Richardson: stop him from getting into his killing zone past the front line.

In any case, this offense is bad. A bad offense is never on the field long enough to allow good rbs time with the ball, and they'll be playing from behind a lot. He might be something next week against the Bills: that team is downright incompetent, and running out the clock will give him 25 carries, but after that it is Ravens twice, Giants once, and the Bengals, Colts and Chargers will be delighted to stack the box for a change.

I'm sure his knee is okay, but I don't think he gets his sea legs until November. I hope I'm wrong, only because I kind of like those idiot Browns for some reason. Don't know why, really. Cleveland is the whiniest town in the league, but I always seem to like/pity their players.

In any case, I'll be surprised if Richardson is worth starting (in Fantasy - obviously he's the best option for the Browns)

I like the new recap commentary that Yahoo! has added to the interface this year, even though some of the info and stats are largely meaningless ("In addition to XXX, you would have beaten seven of the other teams in the league this week. If you had scored N fewer points, you would have lost to every team.")

I'm hoping it won't take that long. Hillis did fairly well out of the gate a couple of years ago...though I'm not sure how much the line has changed since then. But they definitely need to drastically improve the passing game to even give him a chance.

Suburban Churchians.
That's a good one.
