you are soooooooo good lookin
One of my biggest pet peeves is watching games at a bar, and having to hear people root for their fantasy teams and players. When a Chicago Bears player scores a touchdown, I have to hear shit like "Oh man, Cutler should've thrown to Brandon Marshall. He's on my fantasy team." I don't give a shit. And, no, Cutler should not have thrown it to Marshall. He should've thrown it to the guy who was open in the end zone, like he just did. Cocksucker.
What are your thoughts on Josh McCown, Tommy? Should there be a QB controversy in Chicago? Yesterday's game put me solidly in McCown's corner. Week after week he has been consistent and he's shown me enough to want him to lead the rest of the season.
I also think our management might be dumb enough to not re-sign Cutler, and move forward with some retread like Josh Freeman or Matt Flynn. If they don't re-sign Cutler, Andrew Luck or Russell Wilson isn't all of a sudden going to walk into Halas Hall.
Going back to the original question, it doesn't matter who the QB is when our defense is just so shitty. I know injuries have killed the defensive line, but the safeties are a major concern. I would be pissed if Chris Conte is starting next year, and Major Wright isn't much better. Also, Julius Peppers seemed to age 10 years in the off-season and Shea McClellin has been a bust. Who would've thought that Brian Urlacher not coming back would be the least of our defensive concerns this season?
I watch the Steelers without thinking about fantasy. I watch the rest of the AFC North without thinking about fantasy. Outside of that I don't give a shit about any of the NFL teams and fantasy football makes these games watchable for me. It makes the league as a whole more interesting, but it never interferes with my real football rooting interests.
This ain't no middle of the mall shit.
God damn it I knew I was one of the dumb fucking fans. Your post might have brought me back to reality though. Obviously they have a nice problem in the QB department. The real problems are with defense.

Kiasmos 6/2 (SF)
You're not a dumb fucking fan, Faxino, you're just a prisoner of the moment. It happens. Just get some perspective and we'll move past this.
bet the spreads, tommy. bet the spreads. heh heh.
Rank the divisions! Everyone's had their bye week and let's assume SF doesn't pull a Peyton Manning and blow a large lead.
NFC East: 19 wins
NFC North: 20 (counting the tie as 1/2 a win for each of GB and Minn)
NFC South: 22
NFC West: 29
AFC East: 22
AFC North: 21
AFC South: 16
AFC West: 27

Holy shit. Tomlin should get a 1-game suspension for that.
also, I know this happened a week ago, but how did i miss this?
Roethlisberger should have just run a qb sneak on that two point conversion. That's what I would have done in Madden.
Certain songs they get so scratched into our souls
on my way to Philly this morning. Go Cardinals.
Worst officiating I've seen all year. Simply awful calls in the Phi/AZ game. No consistency.
