4:00 P.M. Plus Late NFL Games Quick Hits

St. Louis at San Diego 4:05 p.m.

MartyBall is a way to score a lot of points and not have a quality fantasy WR?

Marc Bulger appears to be a legitimate Top 10 QB?  Maybe I should do a revised QB rankings?

Indianapolis at Denver 4:15 p.m.

Even with the four TDs allowed, the Broncos defense still averages fewer than one TD allowed per game.  

WR Reggie Wayne is now the 2nd leading receiver for yards in the NFL and tied for third in TDs with 5.

Aren't statistics such crap when the sample size is so small? Yet fantasy football is totally dependent on those bad statistics.

Another reason to hate fantasy football.

And if you own Tatum Bell, you hate the game even more!

N.Y. Jets at Cleveland 4:15 p.m.

When Reuben Droughns gets 125 yards rushing against you, it makes you want to see what the fewest yards allowed rushing by the Jets are this season.

Then you can use it and see the Jets Defense have a great game because the stat is worthless over a sample size of seven.

And who cares if Chris Baker would have come down in bounds?  With barely 100 yards passing and less than that rushing, the Jets didn't deserve to win anyways.

Pittsburgh at Oakland 4:15 p.m.

Big Ben throws four INTs and manages to get to 300 yards passing.  He Bledsoed the Steelers by throwing two INT TDs in an embarrassing 20-13 loss to the Raiders.

The Raiders QB Andrew Walter had 51 yards passing.  Why is he still starting?  Can Tuiasosopo be that bad?

If he is, shouldn't he be cut?

Dallas at Carolina 8:15 p.m.

Am I the only person who woke-up this morning and was shocked the Cowboys won 35-14 after entering the half down 14-10?

If a team turns the ball over three times deep in their territory, then that can occur.

Tony Romo was OK, but those final 25 points were more Carolina's fault then a reflection of Romo's skill.

I did notice he relied heavily on T.O and Jason Witten.
