The Giants are taking on the Falcons at home at 1pm ET today, while the Jets are in New England later on at 4pm ET. Chat all you want about the games here, just make sure you keep your football comments in this thread. Thanks, enjoy the games.
The Giants are on bye this week, but the Jets take on the Jacksonville Jones-Drews at home at 1pm ET. Talk about any game you want, just keep your football comments in this post.
I’ve been intentionally been delaying my first fantasy football update this season, because frankly it’s been pretty bad for me. After a nice 2-1 start, I’ve since lost five of six, and I have just one of the 44 highest scoring players in the league. The main reason for my struggles are the hurt and/or underperforming Anquan Boldin and Terrell Owens, who I figured were good for double digit points on a weekly basis. Free agent pickup Nate Burleson has been my second best offensive player, and Ahmad Bradshaw has emerged as my second RB behind MJD.
Chad Pennington got hurt and Mark Sanchez wasn’t cutting it, so I swapped Knowshown Moreno for David Garrard. If that’s not enough, I have to face the teams currently ranked first and second in the league over the next two weeks, and I’ll face three of the top four teams in the next five weeks. Yippee. 2009 has not been kind of my fantasy teams, but if that’s the price I have to pay for the Yankees winning the World Series, then so be it.
Anyway, here’s your open thread for the night. None of the local teams are in action, so you’re stuck finding your own entertainment. Talk about whatever you want, just be cool. You can see the full fantasy football league standings are after the jump.
It’s very slow around baseball today, not atypical this soon after the World Series. I figure half of New York will be watching the Giants face the Chargers this afternoon, so use this thread to chat about it.
The Jets are on bye this week, but the Giants take on the Chargers at 4:15pm ET. Feel free to go nuts talking about any of today’s games, just keep the conversation in this thread, please.
The Giants are in Philadelphia at 1pm ET in a game that mirrors the World Series, and the Jets are taking on the Dolphins at the same time. Please keep the football conversation here, so the other threads stay on topic. Thanks y’all, hope y’all enjoy the games. [/Pettitte’d]
Does anyone want to see this series extended any further than it has to? No, I think one day off between Games 5 and 6 is plenty. Unfortunately, the weather might prove prohibitive. In fact, Weather Underground says it’s pretty much a given that it’s going to rain and thunder all game long.
That 100% on the bottom of the chance of precipitation. I don’t think it includes the chances of thunder.
The Weather Channel is a bit more forgiving. Their changes of precipitation sits at just 80 percent. I like that — they give themselves a margin for error. I don’t understand why a meteorologist would ever predict 100 percent chance of precipitation.
So it doesn’t look good. The guy on TWC is retaining some optimism. If you feel like being your own meteorologist, check out the radar.
That will conclude our weather-based posed…hopefully forever.
