I'm going to be joining my first fantasy football pool this week with my new co-workers. (I've done football pools in the past, but just straight teams' wins/losses)

Can anyone recommend a good website / publication for getting up to speed with the current NFL talent?

Thx!

Josh Shaw out indefinitely because of some heroics. Well done Josh.

Quote:
While attending a family social function at his cousin's apartment in his hometown of Palmdale, Shaw looked on from a second floor balcony to the pool below and saw his 7-year-old nephew, who cannot swim, in distress without help nearby. Shaw instinctively leaped off the balcony, landing painfully on the concrete below.

He was able to crawl into the pool and ushered his nephew to safety. Despite the intense pain in his legs, he was then able to grab the ladder and lift himself out of the pool with his upper body.

Shaw, who will miss at least the season opener on Saturday, said he would have jumped in to save anyone. Head coach Steve Sarkisian expressed his admiration for Shaw's courageous act.

"That was a heroic act by Josh, putting his personal safety aside. But that's the kind of person he is," said Sarkisian.

The extent of Shaw's injuries is unclear. He is listed as out indefinitely.

The Rams had a chance to draft Bortles or Bridgewater, now they are screwed.

I would have fired Fisher an Co. for not picking a QB in the first round of this last draft.

Bridgewater went at the end of the first round as well.

Josh Shaw admits his heroic story was a lie. As a USC fan and someone from the Antelope Valley who has followed Josh since his days at Palmdale High, it's very disappointing to hear.

the truth comes out or should I say the lie comes out

http://www.foxsports.com/college-foo...njuries-082714

unless he was doing something illegal, why make up such a spectacular lie like that and of course he is suspended indefinitely aka till his injuries heal.

I guess they didn't want to hurt the fragile ego of Bradford by bring in a guy who might succeed him one day. No matter what he did [aside from winning the Superbowl] no one really believed they would re sign him next season with that huge $$ option on the table. So what did they do, wait til the 6th round instead.
As much as I like Fisher, his focus in way too much on defense.

Oh I'm sure he jump from the 2nd story into a pool, but it was probably on a bet from one of his friends. Probably made up the rest so he wouldn't look like an idiot for doing it and getting hurt.

Shaw will be this years Te'o. The Te'o one as funnier but this one is downright pathetic, can't believe the clown as really quoted as saying "I would have done it for any kid, not just my nephew"

Sarkisian is in a tough spot because this is a really good player, a senior and a captain, but this is going to be a distraction if he is brought back in.

Interesting week at Heritage Hall.

ESPN will probably have Jesse Jackson on Sports Center tonight to discuss the rampant racism at USC. 30 black alums in the NFL, just imagine how many there could be without the racism.

It's crap and has no legs.

A number of USC players have already taken to Twitter to denounce the racist allegations. This is one example:

I know, but it'll still snowball into some ridiculous thing. Anthony's a big baby.

I would think there would be more than one player would come forward if there was clear racism going on. Still not a good time for this with the Shaw story, not a great way to go into kickoff on Saturday.

I tend to think people who use the race and slavery card with no evidence for others to judge are full of ****.

Anthony Brown doesn't come across as a bright individual. How does a person who writes/speaks this way get admitted into USC? I guess I shouldn't bother asking that question...

Quotes from Brown:
Quote:
"I called a meeting up with this disrespectful guy!!! He called me a coward, all types of ****** words."

"He stereotype my mom and dad. like he belittle me to another level."

"I just responded Yes Sir and No Sir!"

"Never been treated like that before!! Don't Wish it upon anyone! That's who he is!"

He comes across as a spoiled entitle college athlete who probably didn't like his meeting with his coach and took it personal. He'll fit right in the NFL one day.
