The It's Crap Edition of Fantasy Football Daily Pigskin Blink

"It's crap" This a quote from Brian Hartline (WR - Miami Dolphins), with respect to Houston Texan rookie D.J. Swearinger's hit on Dustin Keller, that resulted in a torn ACL, MCL, PCL and a dislocated knee cap. Swearinger, speaking after Saturday's game, stated, concerning the hit and the injury, "My senior year I had like three helmet-to-helmet [penalties]. I knew I had to change my style of play and start targeting low." (Quote provided by ESPN.com)

So what is it in the NFL? Below the shoulders and above the knees? Or is it smaller? For everyone old enough, it reminds me of a certain scene from "The Jerk" starring Steve Martin (best Roger Goodell impression, ever!)

The Redskins, without RG3, come out with a win over the Steelers last night, in what could be considered the Injury Bowl. Nearly ten players from both sides of the ball, including Rex Grossman (QB - Washington Redskins), Lawrence Timmons (LB - Pittsburgh Steelers) and Kirk Cousins (QB - Washignton Redskins) all missed time due to injury during the match-up.

The Cleveland Browns have announced Brandon Weeden (QB - Cleveland Browns) as their starting quarterback. Weeden has proved solid this pre-season, going 10 of 13 for 112 yards and touchdown again the Rams in weekone, and then 8 of 12 for 117 yards and two touchdowns this last week. The 29-year-old is completing over 70% of his passes, without throwing an interception.

In some 'shouda known better news', for Defenses and IDPs in fantasy football, Von Miller (LB - Denver Broncos), All-Pro and star sack leader for the Broncos, will now miss the first six games of regular season action for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancing drugs. In his past two seasons, he has been the Broncos' sack leader, grabbing 30. If unchanged, his banishment from the team will begin August 30th.

That's it for me today. Tonight, I'll be recording, along with The Mad Scientist, a new episode of the Fantasy Football Toolkit. Tomorrow, check out Dellav and Dotson live from the Crane Room Bar and Grille in New Castle for 3SN live. Take it easy everybody!
