Argh, in our fantasy football team at work, my team drafts 10th out of 16.   Well, better than last year drafting dead last.

At least the draft will be at my house....... think a bunch of IT nerds with laptops at my house, drinking beer and eating pizza and drafting on August 30th.

As far as college football goes, I went to Mizzou and they are in the preseason top ten for the first time since 1969.    Needless to say, I am in shock.

What I don't understand about this Brett Favre/Packer's Brass story is the following....(and I'm bipartisan on this)...

If Brett Favre is heaps better than Aaron Rodgers going into '08, why isn't McCarthy clamoring for him to come back and be the starter? I understand full well why Thompson is pro-Rodgers, but McCarthy? Is he just toying the company line? It doesn't add up and is embarrassing.

I don't think that they understand that if they win a Super Bowl with Brett, then they will be given a ton of second chances to win without him.  I hope they fall on their fucking faces this year, Rogers gets hurt week one, and they go 1 and 15.

Man, I feel sorry for Rodgers.   The FIRST interception will have the fans chanting for Favre.   Should get real ugly real early.

I see that the Panthers suspended Smith (their best player) for the first two games of the year for clobering his team mate in practice.   John Fox has some stones on him, that is for sure.    I am proud of them for not putting their superstar above the team.

Well the Packers are now saying it will be an "open competition" for the starting QB spot.  Should at least be interesting.

Time for Rogers to enter the witness relocation program if he "beats out" Brett Favre.

how much repect has he lost in the locker room because of all of this? DO you think the team is really going to take him back?
If there was a transformer that was a hybrid, do you think the other Autobots would make fun of him or be envious?

If I were a player, I would be thinking how short my career is, how much better off we are with Favre and hope that Favre is the starter.   

Tomorrow and Tuesday will be FUN to watch unfold. :highfive:
