Just a handful of observations:
Why do TV people think that fans who are willing to tune in for a pre-game show want to see stupid (and lip-synched?) musical acts?
Who had Charlie Batch starting as their Fantasy QB this week? Anyone? Anyone? I take it back that they would miss Big Ben. Very back.
For all of Nick Saban's rep as some kind of coaching genius, he sure pooped the bed on that late replay flag.
(But let's not overstate: The ball would have been on the 1; the Steelers would have scored a TD...)
(...Of course, with Butterfingers Batch under center, having the ball at the 1 is no gimme.)
Daunte's debut was solid (enough), but those 2 late picks should trouble everyone: He was forcing the issue. (Didn't he do that pre-injury last season in
If there was any solace I could take from blowing the game prediction, it's that Ronnie Brown was a fantasy revelation.
Quickie readers know I was struggling with an internal debate over whether to take him with the 4th overall pick: A large reach (considering the consensus support for Tiki at No. 4, which I couldn't deal with), though not insane given the muddle between the 4th and 10th RBs.
Well, if Ronnie B. can score 2 TDs for me every Sunday, I'll be VERY happy -- even if the Dolphins lose the rest of their games.

(That's a fantasy GM for you.)
