Since Pat and Hoodoo are slacking, I'll get this started. Practice was indoor, and has ended, so these are all post-practice notes.

I'm starting to plan my away game for the upcoming season, and it's looking like Carolina is the best fit. I wanted to get some opinions on people who went there before, and from anyone on here who lives/lived there.
Where's the best area to stay? I booked a room at the Marriott City Center, whic...

Initially I was against Fuller at 27, but he's starting to grow on me. Most of the reports I read about him was that he is expected to be a zone CB in the league, because that's mostly what he played at VT. I found this report done by an Eagle's blogger, and it's probably one of the best one I've re...

I'm heading up there next weekend with 11 friends for the Saints/Rams game, and for a Bachelor Party. Should be arriving Friday around noon, leaving Monday afternoon. Any good recommendations (bars/clubs/strip clubs/restaurants) for a bunch of guys for the weekend? Which places to avoid?
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Trade Help re: Brady - mm2316 on 11/21/13 at 3:43 pm|
12 man, PPR
I've had really bad QB luck this season. Over the last 5 weeks, only once have I had a QB play all 4 quarters (Vick, Cutler, Pryor, Locker, and Keenum were my last 5 starters). Despite that, I'm still 7-4, but am trying to make up a move to shore up my QB spot.
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Have you ever seen someone ruin their team this badly by trades? - mm2316 on 11/20/13 at 4:29 pm|
I'm convinced a guy in my league only plays to make trades. Every year, within days of the draft he starts sending out multiple player trades. If he had made no trades this year, his line up would be:
12 man, Standard
QB: Russell Wilson
RB: Shady McCoy
RB: Andre Ellington
WR: Calvin Johnson...

Yay or No?
I look at it as almost two separate trades. Anderson for Monroe and Gordon and Withey for two expirings. I think the Gordon haters will like it, but I'd like to get a little mor...

Now that Beverley has been named the starter, his value has obviously gone up, but by how much? I figure Lin will still get a decent chunk of minutes, and Harden will probably be doing a lot of ball handling. I only have 1 true PG on my team, so I sent the guy with Beverley a proposal for Kevin Mart...
