Well, I have finally found something worse than the Giants two losses. Just kidding, but I am not pleased with the G-Men. At all. Eli is playing terrible, and the running game is a disaster. Oh, and my condolences go out to all the David Wilson fantasy owners right now. Unfortunately, when Andre Brown broke his leg, I decided to go after David Wilson in my fantasy league. Dumb move. Anyway, when I said I'd found something worse than the Giants, I don't even mean the Jaguars. Now, the Jags are definitely worse than the Giants, but the Giants were actually supposed to be good! I mean, how can you be worse than a team who didn't get passed their own 36 yard line in Week 1. Yes, you heard that statistic, it's not a typo; the Jacksonville Jaguars weren't able to get passed their OWN 36 yard line. Besides that embarrassing fact, I managed to find something terrible in the NFL. Trent Richardson, an Indianapolis Colt? I thought it was a joke when I saw a headline on FoxSports, after my 2nd straight Fall Ball loss against Union. When I got home, I checked NFL.com, ESPN, and cbssports.com to make sure I wasn't going crazy. First of all, it never really occurred to me that NFL teams make trades. Now, that's a bit of an exaggeration, but compared to other sports... Not a lot of trades in pro football.
Anyway, when I saw that headline, my first thought was, "Is this a comedy show?" My second thought was, "If for some reason thats true, is Andrew Luck a Brown?" Of course, the chances of that are unlikely, but trading a young, talented RB in the NFL is pretty unlikely too. I had to see who the Colts had given up, expecting a player like T.Y. Hilton or somebody with some serious value. When I realized how little the Indianapolis Colts had given up, I was shocked. A draft pick. That's it. Trent Richardson for a draft pick. My friend Joe, an unfortunate Cleveland fan, had a theory: The Browns wanted to get rid of all their good players to get the 1st overall pick of next years draft. That is preposterous, but I haven't come up with a better solution, other than the obvious, "They are rebuilding." Even so, why not rebuild around a talented young player? I don't get it. Also, it kinda bothers me that the Browns have given up so early. They may not have the best team in their division, but it is a little ridiculous to give up on the year after Week 2. Despite all this, my fantasy team is 2-0. So, I have something to hang on to. Hopefully, the Giants will step it up too.
