Way to shite the bed today. At home: no TO's, no pressure on the QB, horribly missed tackles, zero points. You probably cost me the ship. Thanks....
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Brady or Rivers? Please Help!!! - northLAgoomba on 12/22/13 at 9:26 am|
I'm in the championship and this decision is crucial.
My thoughts: Rivers has a good matchup against Oakland, but when SD gets a lead, they run the ball and milk the clock. On the other hand, Brady is facing the Ravens and will most likely be chunking the ball all game. My gut says go with B...

Brady's been on a roll lately, but Rivers is going up against the Broncs and will need to score to keep up. ...

Did anyone else wake up this morning and see that Alshon Jeffrey dropped points? In my case, he dropped from 36 to 32.
I'm now down 14 points instead of 10, with one player left (Seattle kicker). What the hell? ...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Brady or Rivers? - northLAgoomba on 12/1/13 at 10:06 am|
I have Brady pegged in because it looks like the Patriots' passing game is finally on-track. But, Rivers looked good last week against a very good Chiefs defense....

Huge game for me tonight. Down 9, I have Brady going against opponent's Carolina defense. At flex, I can go either [b]Ridley[/b] or [b]Amendola[/b]. (Side note: opponent also has Gronk at TE).
Who should I roll with? ...

Sticking with the health care theme today, I had my gallbladder removed a month ago.
What led to the surgery was a severe pain just below my right breast, a burning pain in my right side, and what felt like muscle spasms in my back just below my right shoulder blade. The pain was constant, som...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| ESPN FF Had This Comment About Brady Before Today's Game - northLAgoomba on 11/3/13 at 6:45 pm|
"For the first time in a decade, Brady is NOT a recommended fantasy play. New England's offense continues to be stuck in mud over the past four weeks, with Brady the main culprit with just 52 percent completions, 5.4 yards per attempt, two TDs and four INTs. Although he has dominated the Steelers in...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Chiefs or Broncos? - northLAgoomba on 10/10/13 at 7:28 am|
Should I start the Chiefs (against Oakland) or the Broncos (against Jacksonville).
The Chiefs have carried me to a 3-2 record, but I like the Broncos' matchup with Jacksonville. Also, Pryor scares me a little. ...

I lost my playoff game by 1 fricking point.
HEY DETROIT, all I needed was for you to get zero points against the worst offense in the league. ZERO FRICKIN POINTS!! Instead, you go MINUS 2. I will hate you forever, you bastards!
HEY JOSH FREEMAN, all I need was a touchdown OR 100 yards to ...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Browns D/ST Appreciation Thread - northLAgoomba on 12/10/12 at 12:15 pm|
Selected them over the Jets and Rams. After Jamal Charles took it 80 yards on the first possession, I thought I made a huge mistake.
They kicked arse the rest of the way and carried me to win my playoff game. :bow:...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Browns, Rams, or Jets D/ST? - northLAgoomba on 12/8/12 at 3:00 pm|
I have the Rams and Browns D/ST. Rams are at Buffalo and the Browns are home against KC. I can acquire the Jets, who are at Jacksonville.
D/ST are going to be huge for me this week, probably the difference between winning and losing.
Right now, I am going with the Browns. WWYD?

Anyone going? Pretty good card in addition to the Derby. Aspy's SO has Gantry running in the 3rd race as the 1-2 heavy favorite.
Baffert ships in Blueskiesnrainbows as the favorite for the Derby, but there is other speed in the race. The Hollendorfer colt may be able to run em down late.

| Tiger Rant|| Holy Crap!! I actually agree with Robert Smith - northLAgoomba on 11/6/11 at 7:16 am|
that Bama doesn't deserve another shot at us if we go the rest of the way. They had their chance at THEIR stadium and FAILED. LSU should not have to play Bama again after defeating them on their turf.
It was a must-win for Bama, and they didn't get it done. Sorry, better luck next year.

My primary set of irons is the 2006 version of the Calloway Big Bertha. But, I lost my 6-iron a few months ago and bought a 6-iron Ping Zing as a temporary replacement (it was only $4).
The strange thing is that I hit that old Ping Zing better than any of my 2006 Bertha's. I'm thinking I should...
