    I am all for this! My fantasy Championship depends on it. I have Joe Webb slotted in the WR position. I need him to go off! I am up by one but he also has Rice and Shockey.

    :laugh: There is a column in today's Pioneer Press by Bob Ford of the Philadelphia Inquirer blaming the Viqueens for the snow out there. It's an absolute riot> I sent him an e-mail thanking him.

    Mind you, it was them who said the game isn't playable, not the league.

    They also said the fans can't safely get there - why should that matter? We had to play in the stadium of one of our division rivals, I would have much rather had no one there.
    Snow favors the passing game. Something I read recently (I think it was on Cold, Hard Football Facts).

    Think about it - if footing is affected by snow/ice conditions then:
    * Pass rushers are slowed getting off the ball
    * Pass catchers are less affected than pass defenders because they know where they are supposed to go.
    * Running backs are affected because they need to "cut to daylight".

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    I heard on the radio that this was Philly's 3rd worst snow storm ever.
    In Mpls. it would be a yawner that may not crack the top 100.

    Shancoe talks to the media a lot. He was on First Take this morning on ESPN2.

    Marketing I guess!

    He really should consider shutting up.

    He's a babbler.
