First thing is first... GO HAWKS!
Ok, now that that is out of the way we can get started.
Week two is typically the collective breath week. Perhaps that collective gust added to some of the storms we experienced across the country. Lightning delays in two separate cities, and could not get much further away from each other being in Tampa and Seattle. Teams across the league are accusing others of faking injuries to slow down these offenses, maybe someone hired mother nature to achieve the task.
Is it just me or does anyone find the whole Russell-Kaepernick eyebrow thing stupid? Kaepernick’s smile is super corny in some fake video, recorded months ago probably, with completely different hair length and facial hair design. I watched Kaepernick in last night and the last thing he will be doing for awhile is smiling around Russell Wilson. He didn’t even want to shake hands after the game, much less shave his eyebrow off. Great idea Madden, but in my opinion, poorly executed.
At least my guy won. Did I say go Hawks yet??
Let’s get to some week 2 notes....
Note 1: Welcome back RBs
- Week 1 saw two running backs break the century marks and while neither of those two did it again this week, a much healthier number decided to step up like Channing Tatem. Six runnings backs hit or went over the 100 yard barrier with multiple more just missing it in the 90s. A sign that the football apocalypse is not quite upon us. Running backs are hard to find, but the fact that James Starks and Knowshon Moreno find themselves in the top 5 reveal there are exceptions from week to week. Funny what happens when you play for your job, ahem James Starks, ahem.
Note 2: The QB carousel continues
- Michael Vick, Philip Rivers, Sam Bradford, Alex Smith, Matt Schaub, and Jay Cutler. None of them with an ADP higher than 8ish and yet they all fell in the top 10 this week in standard scoring. Giving even greater defense to arguing how deep QB is as another three threw for 400+ yards, 10 throwing for 300+ and another four with at least 290. It might be a match ups year for most teams this entire year.
Note 3: Seahawks Defense
