Well the one thing we CAN say about 2008 is that Tom Brady will NOT be the fantasy MVP this year. Brutal to anyone who had him on their team and wasn't able to get Casssle (or already have a great backup). I had Tom in three leagues this year and was only able to get cassel in two (I had Romo as a 'backup' in the other so that works).
Watching parts of all the games this week (aint DirectTV grand?); I was able to say that I was impressed with how Romo looked. May not have translated to fantasy numbers yet, but it's gonna go there. Michael Turner was very impressive as well.
Can anyone tell me why Norv Turner still has a job? The reason the Chargers lost the game had as much to do with their in ability to keep running the ball on their final TD drive as it did their failure to stop Carolina. LT looked great and was almost able to break free several times but they chose to 'mix it up' and it cost them. Mcfadden and Fargus looked great for the Raiders and yet they didn't even touch the ball 20 times between them all game long? If the Raiders wanted to win, they could have kept running it (keeping Denver off the field in the process). It amazes me how coaches can think themselves right out of a game (and a job). Chicago Defense looked great, as did their rookie RB. Indi looked a little off but that could have had as much to do with rust on their part as much as anything the Bears did. I'm sure they'll rebound just fine.
Any surprises after week one? Disappointments? Turner looked great for Atlanta. Can he do it again?
