If you're looking for a good read this Tuesday afternoon, might I suggest Luke Mullins' column on Fred Davis' nightclub trial. Davis allegedly dumped juice on a celebrity "madam/pimpette" -- that's what she's referred to in the column -- and threw an empty pitcher at her head. Makini Chaka, the pimpette, revealed some particularly humorous commentary on the relationship between…

Mark my words. The Dallas Cowboys will never, ever beat the Baltimore Ravens. It's never going to happen. Well, at least that's what history has taught us. ESPN Stats and Info points out that the Cowboys are 0-4 all-time against the Ravens and they are the only team that Dallas has failed to defeat. Pretty wild. I'll never forget when the…

Despite being sidelined for at least the first six weeks of the season, Terrell Suggs is still finding ways to talk smack. During Sunday night's Steelers-Broncos game, Suggs trash talked his former teammate and current Denver running back Willis McGahee. "I see Willis is still scared of the Steelers," Suggs tweeted. McGahee recorded 64 yards on 16 carries and never…

From what I hear, the NFL Draft continued tonight.

The above statement is based on what I’ve read on Twitter though. After three rounds and two days of coverage, I’m seen a grand total of 00:00 seconds of the draft.

But fear not, I have been catching up on what I missed while I was in freezing out at Camden Yards and I noticed that Ozzie Newsome and company traded up to snag Temple running back Bernard Pierce.  After hearing for the last 24 hours how much the Ravens value each and every pick, I found it interesting that they would give up their 91st and 164th picks to the Falcons for the 84th to select Pierce.

They must really think he’s a righteous dude.

The Ravens tweeted that Newsome “wanted to ensure they got him” and he called Pierce “a one-cut runner with some size.

Through some more research, I learned tonight that Pierce was the centerpiece of Temple’s offense and he ran for a total of 3,570 yards and 53 touchdown in his three years in college.  He appears to be a back that, at least for the time being, will help the Ravens in the red zone and in short yardage situations.

But what about as a replacement for Ray Rice?

"That's my team.  That's my quarterback," Terrell Owens famously whined. Out in Hawaii, former Ravens running back Willis McGahee caught some smack talk from a Baltimore fan about Tim Tebow.  "If you had a better quarterback you could have gone further," the fan yelled to McGahee. "That's like saying if they [had] a better kicker they would have won right,"…

You may not have realized with all the coverage of Tim Tebow, but the Denver Broncos running game has been pretty spectacular this season.

The Broncos have rushed for a league leading 2,632 yards, averaging 164.5 per game in 546 attempts.  The only other team to run more than 500 times is the Baltimore Ravens opponent this week,  the Houston Texans.

A critical part of Denver’s success on the ground has been former Ravens running back Willis McGahee, who rushed for 1,199 yards this season.  McGahee was cut by the Ravens before the season began and he told the NFL Network’s Michael Irvin that his release left a bad taste in his mouth about the Baltimore organization.

Matt returns from Steelers territory unscathed and ready to preview the Ravens home matchup against the Texans.  The guys are also joined by Chris Reilly, another Jets/Mets fan, to break down the insanity of the Rex Ryan locker room.

Here are some of topics discussed in this week’s show:

Steelers Get Tebowed!

Tim Tebow knocked the Pittsburgh Steelers out of the playoffs.  United Airlines makes fun of Steelers fans, Charles Barkley is tired of the coverage and Steve Austin says he can have 3:16 under one condition.

Jets Locker Room Fiasco

The Jets fans try to explain whether Mark Sanchez truly got lazy, why Brian Schottenheimer “resigned” and give their thoughts on Tony Sparano and Todd Haley.

Carson Palmer (OAK QB)- 2 solid games in a row. Not only has he proven to be a good backup, but he can be used as a starter based on the matchup. If you have Schaub on bye next week Palmer could be a decent play against MIN. He also has a game left against MIA and faces DET and KC during your fantasy playoffs. Both of those teams can be thrown on.

Andy Dalton (CIN QB)- He’s legit. He also beat PIT. Make him your backup. Trust him if you need him to step in and play. He is @BAL next week so I wouldn’t recommend him then.

John Skelton (ARI QB)- What is this guy’s deal? He follows up 222 and a TD with 315 and 3 TD’s?? Go ahead and pick him up incase this guy is a shocking out of nowhere superstar. You never know. Kolb will be back soon and I would assume that he would get the job back since he is being paid so much money, but if he struggles then they could let Skelton finish out the season. Stash him on your bench maybe?

Tim Tebow (DEN QB)- IF and I mean IF he’s still available then get him. Although all his points game late, and although he played the winless Dolphins, Tebow put up big fantasy points this past week. I expect the second half of that game to be an indicator of what Tebow will do each week. Of course he had some rust to shake off in the first half. Feel comfortable with him as a backup right now, but he’s probably good enough to start because of his rushing yards.

Christian Ponder (MIN QB)- He was pretty impressive in his first ever start. He played well against a very tough GB defense and that’s a great sign. Of all the rookie QB’s this year not named Cam, I think Ponder has the best chance to be a solid NFL QB. He may actually be a sneaky play vs. CAR next week.

Carson Palmer (OAK QB)- Starting Kyle Boller was a terrible mistake. Palmer didn’t play very well himself. But he will continue to get better as he gets comfortable. Palmer still has something in the tank and has a lot to prove.

Need help with who to start and who to bench this week in Fantasy Football?  Here are your answers.  Why listen to me?  Because I’m a Fantasy God and because I’m very accurate.  This article will help you win.  Go elsewhere if you want to lose.  Here are the matchups for Week 7 of the NFL and Fantasy Football season.


Good Starts:
Colt McCoy (CLE)- has been good at home, good matchup vs SEA
Matthew Stafford (DET)- tough matchup but he always finds a way to perform
Cam Newton (CAR)- between passing yds and rushing yds he does enough
Tony Romo- 339/3 last game vs STL, will want redemption from last week
Aaron Rodgers (GB)- ridiculous, 301/4 last game vs MIN
Drew Brees (NO)- will destroy IND
