The NFL is a funny place: how is it that Chris Johnson gets a much deserved spot at the Pro Bowl, but the O-Line that made it all possible doesn't get diddly?
Paul K agrees that Roos got robbed, but I think you can also make an argument for Mawae, who improved greatly after a rough first few games.
Jim Wyatt waits until the end of his list of things he knows about the Titans to throw out the big one: is the best case scenario for Sunday a huge game for CJ and a loss? This team needs talent, and it needs a homerun in the first round. The large mix of 8-8 teams could push our pick into the last half of the draft, but 7-9 ensures a better spot. I still say no, but I can completely understand the dissenting opinion.
PFW named CJ one of the top fantasy performers of 2009, but I can't load the article do to a script error. Maybe you guys will have better luck.
If there's anything professional athletes hate more than losing, it's having a record broken on their watch. Expect that to be a major motivating factor for the 'Hawks on Sunday.
Oddly enough, one of the few consistent bright spots for the Seahawks plays right into CJ's hands: their stellar punter Jon Ryan has done a great job forcing the opposition to start deep in their own territory, which is where long runs begin!
Nate Washington went straight from the Chargers game back to his hometown to distribute gifts and coats to underprivileged kids in Toledo.
Mawae may have gotten left out of the Pro Bowl this year, but CJ's run may be the signature season people point to when he comes up for Hall of Fame discussion. Quite frankly, I don't see anyway Mawae doesn't don that pale yellow jacket one day.
KSK delivers more NFL LOLs, and they hit my soft-spot by combining Vince and Arrested Development. The Colts guy is pretty damned funny too.
