Default Re: big ben being over looked

Some people really do seem to have difficulty coming to terms with the differences between fantasy football ratings and real world football.

The Steelers will often pound the ball in from the one, whereas Manning will likely play fake for the TD - more fantasy points.

Up until the playoffs Ben still hadn't really been let off the leash in terms of passing attempts.

Until this coming year Arizona were incapable of running the ball - thats why Josh McCown gets to throw the ball 40 times a game - thats also why Kurt warner is likely to score more fantasy points than Ben R.

I mean, come on, even the link you have provided has the words 'fantasy sports' right there in the URL - this is whole point ...its NOT REAL LIFE.

They've been great for a while now, three Super Bowls' worth of great. But only this season have the New England Patriots become The Show, the must-see team of stars, pretty boys and reformed bad boys. Suddenly, the Patriots are not simply great; they're compelling, fascinating, appearing to be almighty and a touch lawless.
The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.
