    Man, what a miserable game. I wanted to throttle Holmgren about eleven seperate times during that game. Some of that playcalling was um... bad.
    If the QB is being pressured up the middle, stop trying to throw 30 yard sideline fades, you are going to wind up with your QB tied into a pretzel. Run a 2wr cross and a 2 opposed wr sideline curl. Take a three step drop, and have all your teired crossing routes running within about a 15 degree field of vision from each other, so you can sniff out the midfield coverage early. if you have three DB's sitting in the middle of the field waiting for it, either you checkdown curling WR is open/single covered, or your RB is open in the flat. Then once the safety's are frozen from running that a few times, THEN tell one of your curls to run a go route. Stop trying to run with the fullback. His job is to block. Once or twice a game just to keep the D line honest is PLENTY. You have a speed HB in Maurice Morris. Running him between the tackles when your O line is as banged up as ours is, is stupid. Stupid. Stupid. Stupid. *sigh*...

    I can only wait for the next generation of offensive coordinators who grew up playing Madden.

    You are allowed to talk shit for exactly two weeks Steve, upon whence the Seahawks will hopefully be a little healthier after the bye, and come back to dominate the Minnesota Vikings.

    Unfortunately, you still won't be beating me in Fantasy Football after tonight's game... In fact, I've already passed you. Even though I left 40 points on my bench again this week.

    I notice you weren't confident enough to Start the Bears defense this week. Sucker.

    The gap is closing.

    The race goes not to the hare, nor to the trash talker.

    Baltimore's defense against SD versus Chicago's against the Suckhawks seemed like a pretty good call to me...

    But then the F**k hawks looked...so...bad...And Baldie Matt showed his true form.

    But you're right- the real problem is Holmgren. He is victim to Lombardi's Curse. The Seahawks will not win the Super Bowl until he is gone. it's not looking like they'll be even going...In fact they wouldn't be in the playoffs if they weren't in the worst division in football. Put them in the NFC East and they're 9-7.

    Funny, last year we were 4-1 against the NFC East. This year we are 1-0, but won't see anyone else until we beat Philidelphia in the playoffs.

    Steve, the NFC east is all paper tigers, they're only going to look good until the playoffs.

    As walter Jones goes, so goes Alexander. And as Alexander goes, so go the hawks. Holmgren will never win a super bowl until he commits to a split back offense and gets a tight end he can rely on in the passing game.

    He betrayed Green Bay and has thus incurred the Lombardi curse.

    Favre and a GM who got him players won him the Super Bowl.

    His "strategy" cost them the next one, and clock management in last year's Bowl was ridiculously bad.

    And what you said.

    I was just about to ask the same thing... Steve is out of it though, he's started "guessing" who to start each week. Poor guy. I'm playing the guessing game in my other league, so I know what it does to your psyche. Plus, believe it or not, some of the other owners are colluding to keep me from making any meaningful trades (because it seems like I'm getting taken advantage of) Bastards... In reality they cannot handle my bold and ingenious trading style - getting rid of Lamont Jordan for TJ Houshmandzadeh seems like a perfectly acceptable trade, but I was vetoed by 5 teams in my league...get this... because THE GUY PLAYING ME THIS WEEK posted that I had given up and was "dumping" players in a firesale. What a pile of bull.

    Anyways. Same old story, I get to draft last, I don't get to trade, the juicy picks are snatched off the waivers by people with stupid desk jobs who have nothing else better to do. So far I'm 0-5, but I WILL win this week, which will vault me back up to a tie for 12th By that point... they better watch out, because I'll be on a one game winning streak!

    Yep, gotta admit to Slim and everyone else at this point I'm drivin the Winnebago. Keep playing the wrong players the wrong weeks. "Superstar format" new, takes a while to learn.

    Maybe even a year, but I will. And you will lose, Slim.

    It couldn't be because of your incessant trash talking, could it?

    He's still, barely, in the lead.

    I know. Picked up 30 points on him last week. Of course he'll try to trash talk his way out of that. But in fairness, it may be the only time it happens all year.

    You, however, are sitting pretty.

    I don't need to talk my way out of anything, I'm still winning.
