THUNDERING BLURB » Brett Favre http://thunderingblurb.com ANDREW GARDA'S ENDLESS TAKES ON NFL AND COLLEGE FOOTBALL Fri, 22 Oct 2010 12:30:31 +0000 http://wordpress.org/?v=2.9.1 en hourly 1 Favre retires – REACT http://thunderingblurb.com/2009/02/favre-retires-react/ http://thunderingblurb.com/2009/02/favre-retires-react/#comments Wed, 11 Feb 2009 18:48:00 +0000 admin http://thunderingblurb.com/?p=397 Hey folks, hope you are having a fine Wednesday.

As promised, the site is gearing up again and what better way to start off than with the announcement that Brett Favre will be retiring. again. Maybe for real.

NFLDraftbible.com has compiled some reaction to the imminent departure of Brett the Jet, myself among them.

Click the link for some other thoughts on it, but here is what I had to say:
“Brett Favre has retired yet again and while the season didn’t exactly go the way he or the Jets envisioned, that’s not what leaves me with a poor taste in my mouth. It’s the rumors that he has, once again, asked to be released prior to deciding to retire (presumably to play for the Vikings, where he wanted to go last summer) that really will stick in my craw. Will we see a repeat of last off-season, when Favre pitched a fit as he once again flip-flopped on retirement and, failing to force his outright release, then settled for a trade to the Jets? For the Jets, being able to move forward with their quarterback situation prior to free agency and the draft while dumping Favre’s $13 million cap hit is a positive. But one has to wonder – will the Favre controversy from 2008 rear its ugly head in 2009, all dressed up for a repeat performance?

Let me be clear on this – I love Brett Favre. I think he is a heckuva competitor and has put together a fine career which should not be much marred by the sub-par end of last season. The Jets collapse was not just his fault – he was part of many issues.

That said, I have to wonder if he will ever get that he is not in control. Twice now he has (allegedly) tried to force an outright release to (allegedly) play for the Vikings (who are a QB and good playcalling away from being a legit Super Bowl contender).

I like Favre – I still think the trade for him was a no-brainer, no-lose situation which played out very well for part of the season, only to peter out for many reasons at the end. I am happy I have a Brett favre jersey. I am glad he played for the Jets. Maybe Pennington would have had the success he had with the Dolphins, had he stayed with the Jets. But I doubt it (though some of the failure rests on Mangini’s hands – best of luck Brady Quinn).

Regardless it was a risk worth taking and I think the Jets made the right call.

Right now I’m hoping Favre makes an equally good call and stays retired. I really don’t want to see him again in yet another uniform for a team that is good, though far from great.

Still, given last year, you have to wonder.

Best of luck, Brett – enjoy hunting season.

Thursday Morning Stampede http://thunderingblurb.com/2008/08/thursday-morning-stampede/ http://thunderingblurb.com/2008/08/thursday-morning-stampede/#comments Thu, 14 Aug 2008 14:54:00 +0000 admin http://thunderingblurb.com/?p=92 You can tell we’re getting to the end of camp and towards proper football when the news deluge becomes a trickle as it has the last few days.

Answers we are still waiting on:

  • Will Steven Jackson report? Owners in many drafts are banking on him not holding out but with conflicting reports about whether the sides are even talking, it makes me nervous. The longer this goes on without significant movement, the riskier a top 5 (maybe even 10) pick becomes.
  • Will Jason Peters report? I will say it again – an offensive tackle is just as integral to a good running game as anyone else involved. Peters is the best o-lineman in Buffalo and it’s bad enough he was holding out, but now the team is racked by injury. The value of Marshawn Lynch and that whole offense could hinge on Peters coming back to the fold but like Jackson, no real progress has been made.
  • How bad is the 49r QB situation? It looks pretty grim and what does that mean for Gore? Keep in mind that Gore has put up good numbers in awful offenses before. How much will Martz control the overall offense vs HC Mike Nolan? Does it matter who wins the job with that group?
  • Can Tarvaris Jackson progress? It probably won’t matter to Peterson that much, but should to the rest of the team. The Vikes are very close to Super Bowl status. If Jackson can take a significant leap forward, utilize Berrian and Rice to their potential and give Peterson even more room than the O-line does on a play-by-play basis – I would tap them as heading to Tampa Bay.
  • Will McFadden live up to the hype? People are still kicking themselves for undervaluing Peterson last year and so McFadden has occasionally gone way too early in drafts this year. Peterson was/is a freak and was in a much better situation O-line-wise than McFadden is. we;ve seen soem good play but what does it mean so early? It’d be nice to have been blown away but I am not yet. I still want to know what he can do, an answer I will only get during the season.
  • What effect will Favre have on the Jets? Here’s an answer we’ll get a glimpse at this weekend when he makes his preseason debut, but from a fantasy perspective there are some questions that will take a few regular season games to answer. Will he open up the offense give Thomas Jones room to run? Will Cotchery and Coles see their numbers go up? Will he be Favre from 2007 or 20006? A lot of owners – myself included – are betting heavy that he has increased the value of this team.
  • Who is catching balls in Seattle/Jacksonville/Carolina? You could throw in a few other teams but these three will have more value than most of the others you could name. Steve Smith is suspended for two games – will it affect his season overall? Can DJ Hackett stay healthy or is it already too late? Who will fill in as the #2 across from Burleson in the injury decimated Seattle WR corp? Or Jacksonville? As we find these things out, some Hail Mary picks at the end of drafts could have huge value.

I’ll be back later with any news that shows up plus a few things that we definitely know coming to the end of Training Camp.

The NY Favre Fantasy Breakdown http://thunderingblurb.com/2008/08/the-ny-favre-fantasy-breakdown/ http://thunderingblurb.com/2008/08/the-ny-favre-fantasy-breakdown/#comments Thu, 07 Aug 2008 05:26:00 +0000 admin http://thunderingblurb.com/?p=77 So after mulling it over a few hours here’s how I think this affects the Jets Fantasy Prospects:

Pennington:er….. cut.
Clemens:Kellen, bench – bench, Kellen.

Those were the easy ones….

Laveranues Coles: A solid WR2 anyway, I could see him top 1000 yards this year if healthy. He doesn’t go too long, and years of crossing routes have started to take their toll, however I still think he will get a lot of targets from Favre and is reliable enough to catch a lot of them (62% last year). If he manages to increase his TD total, he could float into the WR1 range.

Biggest Questions: Will he stay healthy and will Favre click with him?
Biggest Plus: awesome hands, fearless receiver

Jerricho Cotchery: Like Coles, already a #2 WR with potential #1 upside, Cotchery should top 1000 easy, maybe heading towards 1,400 land. And see his TDs increase to boot. If he clicks with The Favre, could take over as #1 for the Jets and the upside there would potentially be huge. He’s already the main deep threat for the Jets, so it isn’t a reach to think Favre will utilize him as such. He gets tons of targets – if that keeps up, he just became a really interesting Fantasy prospect.

Biggest Questions: Will other WRs/TEs (Keller, Smith, Clowney) eat into his targets and will the Oline jell enough to give Favre the time to hit him deep?
Biggest Plus: Goes deep, gets many targets.

Thomas Jones:Jones is doing cartwheels. This will open the offense a ton and give him room to run. He may even see some catches. I was already calling for a solid bounce baclk season – lock that in there. He should top 1,000 yards if the Oline holds. He seems to be rebounding slower from dings, but has looked good in camp so far.

Biggest Questions: Is age catching up to him and will the O-line hold?
Biggest Plus: Workhorse back who will be depended upon to keep the Jets going while Favre learns the offense.

Leon Washington: The young, dynamic back will see a ton of catches from Favre but how much it will all amount to still depends upon Washington. He makes things happen in space and that’s where he coudl excel on a screen, but he won’t get much work between the tackles. Could be Westbrook but more than likely will still be watching a lot of Favre from the sidelines. Like him as a bye week guy with upside though.

Biggest Question: Will he get enough touches?
Biggest Plus: Speed and a dynamic playmaking ability.

Chris Baker/Bubba Franks/Dustin Keller: I wonder if Franks had a hand in talking Favre into NY? Well, don’t get carried away – Franks is enough past his prime to not have a huge impact and was brought into block. Baker is the immediate recipiant of good Favre Karma – he can do a lot of different things and will be on the field the most. However, don’t be shocked if Favre bonds with Keller ala Donald Lee last year. Keller is having a great camp and aside from not being able to block, is making some great catches. He and Baker may cancel each other out but I like Keller to take over somewhere in the midst of this season.

What that means is up in the air until we see what the Jets will do with their TEs.

Biggest Questions: Who will get looks, how will the TEs get used?
Biggest Pluses: Baker can do anything, will get lots of field time, Franks blocks well, knows Favre and Keller is an exciting prospect who can open up the outside in a way the other two can’t.

That’s all for now – lots to consider before your draft day but the Jets just might have become a good place for some value.

Favre to Jets – finally? http://thunderingblurb.com/2008/08/favre-to-jets-finally/ http://thunderingblurb.com/2008/08/favre-to-jets-finally/#comments Thu, 07 Aug 2008 04:00:00 +0000 admin http://thunderingblurb.com/?p=76 According to FOXSports.com , Brett Favre is now a Jet. Jay Glazer is saying there are no compensation details yet but rumor earlier was a 3rd with escalations to a 1st depending on the Jets and Favre’s performances.

More when I have it.

But bump up the Jets offense considerably if it’s true….

Wednesday Morning Stampede http://thunderingblurb.com/2008/08/wednesday-morning-stampede/ http://thunderingblurb.com/2008/08/wednesday-morning-stampede/#comments Wed, 06 Aug 2008 14:21:00 +0000 admin http://thunderingblurb.com/?p=73 So FAVREWATCH 2008 is far from over, but we knew that would be the case.

All that and some running back news below for the Morning Stampede…

Green Bay Packers
As was reported yesterday, Favre is probably close to being traded and soon. Both the Jets and Bucs are allegedly interested – the Tampa Tribune says Favre will be a Buc be days end, with Brian Griese heading to Wisconsin to back up Aaron Rodgers (which as I wrote last night, only made sense). Not so fast says Jay Glazer of FoxSports – the NY Jets have offered a much better trade package. Apparently, Favre currently prefers the Bucs, though he is talking to the Jets, and supposedly feels that the Packers are asking too much from the Bucs just because they are a NFC team.

I think this will clear up by Friday, maybe before, but it continues to be somewhat ugly between the Pack and their once favored son.

Both the Bucs and Jets would be good, not great fits, for Favre and neither is a Super Bowl contender though the Bucs seem closer on the surface. Favre may help them make a run while he merely makes the Jets an 8-8 team with Wild Card aspirations. That’s not a slam on Favre – the Jets are just farther away. But you never know.

Either team would put Favre back on the Fantasy radar and make him – at the very least – a #2 QB.

Chicago Bears
Kevin Jones is definitely healing well and while he might still open the season on the PUP list, he is supposedly running close to full speed. He’s been in pads, though sporting a heavy knee brace. It’s the brace that reminds you he is still coming back from a nagging injury and is a guy who the Bears probably picked up more for later in the season. Jones could be a pick during the last half or third of your draft, but you shouldn’t draft him for anything but bench depth. Matt Forte is still the starter and will be for some time, barring him struggling mightily.

San Francisco 49rs
Frank Gore could have a huge season if he is involved in the pass game the way I (and others) suspect he might, yet I still see him slipping late in the 1st round of drafts. Gore has worked hard to get into better shape, including dropping wieght. With the concerns for just about every running back pick after #3 (Westbrook or Peterson, depending on who you ask), Gore is someone to look at closely and consider for your #1 back.

Most of the 49rs have a long way to go to prove themselves fantasy worthy and Gore could still face 8 man fronts if Martz’s offense struggles. But Gore has faced them before and done well. Dropping the weight and getting into better shape will hopefully keep him healthier and get rid of nagging injuries that have plagued him for his career.

Pittsburgh Steelers
Just when we thought Fast Willie Parker had lost his goal line touches for good with the drafting of Rashard Mendenhall – not so fast. According to HC Mike Tomlin (by way of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette ), Parker is once again under consideration for goal line duties. Now, I need to look into this but this may be a sign Mendenhall is struggling a little in camp. I’ll see what I can find out. Parker will get you the yards – but his touchdowns were completely absent last year and it killed his owners. If he can get even a few more goal line touches, it would really help his value to you. I have been, and still do, assume that the rookie Mendenhall will get a ton of short yardage looks, including in the red zone. Parker hasn’t got the size for it and concern still is he might wear down. But he has been effective on occasion and could be again if the offensive line is back on it’s game. That was the biggest problem last year – the Ol-ine struggled as much as he did.

He’s your rock solid RB2 – with a ton of upside if this plays out.

That’s all for now – more later.

Favre to Bucs – Garcia to Packers? http://thunderingblurb.com/2008/08/favre-to-bucs-garcia-to-packers/ http://thunderingblurb.com/2008/08/favre-to-bucs-garcia-to-packers/#comments Tue, 05 Aug 2008 23:19:00 +0000 admin http://thunderingblurb.com/?p=71 Hey guys

In case you were asleep, Adam Shefter says the Packers have placed Favre on the declared non-injury inactive list and told him once and for all – no, you cannot get your release. They are talking to the Bucs and Favre is thinking it over. And of course we have talked about what this could mean for Favre and the Bucs – but what about a wrinkle?

Could Garcia be a part going back to the Pack?

Let’s face it, the Pack has very shaky QB depth behind Rodgers who has a bit of an injury history. They need a veteran back-up and I was shocked they didn’t pursue one. So why not?

Well, Garcia still thinks he can start. He can. too. Maybe he can gamble that Rodgers will not work out or get hurt, but I doubt he’d be happy. On the other hand – well rotoworld put it better than I ever could -

….and Jeff Garcia would certainly throw a hissy fit to be remembered.

I think Garcia could do well in Green Bay but he may not go. I would think Brian Griese or Chris Simms will be more likely.

But anyway, I thought it an interesting notion. Jets are also getting mentioned a lot on NFL Total Access.

Favre Leaves Camp and other tidbits http://thunderingblurb.com/2008/08/favre-leaves-camp-and-other-tidbits/ http://thunderingblurb.com/2008/08/favre-leaves-camp-and-other-tidbits/#comments Tue, 05 Aug 2008 20:27:00 +0000 admin http://thunderingblurb.com/?p=69 Continuing our last story on this, Brett Favre has now left Packers camp and will be meeting – along with his family – with GM Ted Thompson later. Some earlier reports via The Sports Network have pegged him as once again asking for his outright release, something that likely won’t happen and would – as I have said – would be akin to assisted career suicide for Thompson. Adam Shefter over at NFLN reported yesterday that the Bucs were still talking with the Packers about a possible trade, so perhaps the meeting will involve something along those lines. Shefter feels that the Bucs trade or retirement are the only choices. As rumors have said the discussions yesterday with Favre and McCarthy centered on team unity and avoiding an ugly lockerroom situation, he may be right.

I say Favre should take the trade, if he really wants to play. I also think the Packers should try to make a deal as best they can and be flexible in what they want for Favre so he has a selection of choices.

The sad thing is, something tells me that this brouhaha has probably so sapped Favre of energy and desire that he migth just walk away. And as much as I think a lot of his actions here in this have been badly executed and thought out, I think that would be too bad. Favre wants to play – somehow that shouldn’t be THIS hard to make happen.

In other news –
Jacksonville Jaguars
The wide receiver situation in Jacksonville is no clearer despite the current depth chart. With Porter and Williams out, Troy Williamson and Dennis Northcutt are the first team, while Mike Walker and Matt Jones are second team. I still have hopes for Walker, though not as high – being on Jones’ squad isn’t a ringing endorsement. However, HC Jack Del Rio has spoken well of Jones’ effort in camp. So you never know.

I’ve said this before but this is like the Pats prior to last year, only with less yards. It’s going to be hard to know who will get yards consistently and while Garrard will be an effective starter (though not a dynamic one) for fantasy teams, no receiver here will be good enough, often enough to be better than a #3, at best. But the offense overall should be pretty effective, regardless of who catches the ball when.

New Orleans Saints
Reggie Bush is going to get some opportunity to return punts again, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune . Still, he won’t do it that often, though he might make for a few really impressive run backs. Meanwhile, Pierre Thomas is “competing for a lot of touches” according to Head Coach Sean Payton, via the Baton Rouge Advocate . Thomas is a guy I have been touting all off season and with Deuce returning from another knee injury and Thomas impressing last season, expect the guy to get a good amount of touches.

More from the article:

“He has good vision and good balance,” Payton said. “He’s a guy that has proven that you can hand him the ball more than 15 or 20 times in a game and he can carry the load.”

That’s a good sign if you happened to have snagged him when I told you to for your Dynasty Teams. I think he will compliment Bush very well and he certainly looks to take over for McAllister, who is nearing the end of being a useful full time back.

New York Giants
I don’t normally want to call out other Fantasy Guys, especially those I don’t know. And in all fairness I can’t recall who said it. But I did a little reading in Alaska and out of curiosity, I read some Fantasy Football magazines. I don’t do magazines. At the Journal last year, we did an online one that updated weekly. I read Footballguys, in part because I know so many people involved and I like what they do. I read Pro Football Weekly’s for the excellent team breakdowns. This year, I picked up ESPN’s as well.

I won’t critique it much here, but will point out once again my frustration with some of the content there. So late in their mock draft (which was allegedly done in 45 minutes – thanks guys, good job being thorough – and with little explanation of any picks), in the final round in fact, one guy picks up Mario Manningham. He touts the pick, how clever he is. Manningham is great!

Manningham is also the only rookie WR taken. You know, over James Hardy, Devin Thomas, Limas Sweed – or what I like to call ‘Guys who can contribute maybe this year’. Manningham – behind the likes of Plaxico Burress, Amani Toomer and Steve Smith.

The same Manningham who today, according to the New York Post , has bleeding in his strained quad. Thats’ bad and it could put him on the PUP, if not IR if it’s bad enough.

Which just goes to show you that you ALWAYS need to use your own judgement and use the mags and everyone’s opinions online and everywhere else to help form your own. Anyone reading this column is unlikely to have made that pick – because you probably know the upside of the other rookies and you pay attention. It ain’t that hard.

But I look back at that mock and shake my head even harder at the $7 or whatever that I spent. Thank God I get to write it off next year.

More later….

Tuesday Morning Stampede http://thunderingblurb.com/2008/08/tuesday-morning-stampede/ http://thunderingblurb.com/2008/08/tuesday-morning-stampede/#comments Tue, 05 Aug 2008 14:35:00 +0000 admin http://thunderingblurb.com/?p=68 Yesterday, Green Bay Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy and estranged quarterback Brett Favre met for something on the order of 9 hours or so, longer than expected and wrapping their discussion at about 12:30am EST. Not much is known for sure about the meeting but we know they talked about what a QB controversy and battle might do to team chemistry. We still don’t know what is going on here and there is supposed to be a press conference at some point today.

As the World Turns, These Are The Days of our Lives……

Washington Redskins
Yesterday Malcolm Kelly got his knee scoped and today it looks like fellow rookie Devin Thomas is going to miss all the practices this week and the second preseason game. Not a good start for the rookies here. Now word on if Fred Davis has woken up in time for camp or gotten a new alarm clock.

New York Jets
The rookies in this camp are faring much better, as Dustin Keller has been showcasing his talents all camp long and now Vernon Gholston is doing the same. While the Newark Star-Ledger is saying he has had a quiet camp so far, both the blogs at Newsday.com and DailyNews.com have mentioned Gholston being in the backfield many tiems in the day since he has signed his contract. Both players could have an impact – though Gholston’s learning curve and the return of Chris Baker at tight end may limit the upside of both this season.

St Louis Rams
Steven Jackson continues to hold out but I think he shows to camp soon. Not because he will get what he wants or cave, but because if he misses one more day of camp, he loses a year towards being an unrestricted free agant, according St Louis Post-Dispatch . He may be willing to lose that if he thinks he can sign an extension but at this point both sides seem pretty far apart.

Baltimore Ravens
Wednesday’s episode of The Thundering Blurb Fantasy Football Show will talk about Training Camp battles, but I’ll touch on this one here as well. Rookie Joe Flacco is struggling in camp, overthrowing short passes or throwing them too hard. Touch Passes are important for the Ravens scheme so that’s not good for his starting bid. Flacco has doubters and certainly has holes in his game. He was going to take a year to develop at least. Troy Smith has the edge in camp right now and looks like the starter.

More later.

Late Sunday Week Primer http://thunderingblurb.com/2008/08/late-sunday-week-primer/ http://thunderingblurb.com/2008/08/late-sunday-week-primer/#comments Mon, 04 Aug 2008 06:46:00 +0000 admin http://thunderingblurb.com/?p=65 Hey guys

Hope you had a good weekend – between some computer issues and the imminent kickoff of both college football and pro football seasons, the Blurb was quiet this weekend for the most part.

Here is a quick look at what’s on tap, then a brief weekend update for you:

This week we’ll have much more Training Camp news as well as the beginnings of some college discussion. Both The Thundering Blurb Podcast and The Drive Block will of course be in full effect. And I am hoping to have at least my top 10 college rankings by Friday. That and Friday night/Saturday morning I hope to have delivered some on the spot Cowboys camp news as well.

So as always pretty quiet.

Here’s the weekend update:

Carolina Panthers
The Panthers have suspended wide receiver Steve Smith for 2 regular season games for his altercation with Ken Lucas, and it will be interesting to see how hard he drops in drafts. Hopes were high for him in the Fantasy community but there is no way you can draft him where he was going, often as people’s #1 wr. And now you know why we tell you a draft prior to preseason games is a bad idea.

However, if he drops long enough for you to grab him as a #2 and you can grab some good filler guys to back him up, he should be very productive after he gets back in the groove by week 3. So play up his suspension in your leagues and see if you can snag him as he tumbles hard. Overall he should be much better than last year, but you also have to worry about how he reacts to this.

Denver Broncos
Brandon Marshall has received his punishment from the league and it’s about where I thought it would be – I said 4, reduced to 2, and it’s 3, likely to be reduced to 2. Marshall is another guy who may tumble hard come your draft day and this will, like Smith, keep him from being someone you can grab as a #1 but might drop enough for you to grab later after you have a good #1, a good Rb and another guy in either category. When he comes back, Cutler will be very happy to see him and target him often.

Kansas City Chiefs
This might be irrelevant depending upon how you view the pass game in KC, but rookie Will Franklin has apparently passed by Maurice Price and Jeff Webb. Devard Darling is all that stands between him and starts, so consider a late flier on him – though if pickings are better elsewhere, remember the KC pass game will likely top out at ‘meh’ with sprinklings of ‘yuck’.

And brace yourselves -
Green Bay
Favre arrives in camp Monday. He was reinstated today after the Hall of Fame festivities were done with. It looks liek the competition is on and Aaron Rodgers took to the fight with 7-of-20 passes for 84 yards, no touchdowns, and one interception at the Packers’ Fan Fest scrimmage Sunday night. Yeah, that’s not a great start to this is it? Oh and the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel saying that the Pack called the Vikings about Favre being available in trade – and I still say if that happens then Ted Thompson might as well sign his letter of resignation. The two times Favre would lead the Vikes against the Pack would do it for him, if he wouldn’t. But man, wouldn’t that make Bernard Berrian and Sidney Rice owners happy?

More tomorrow throughout the day as we continue spinning Training Camp and the NFL for you every single day.

ps- just watched the Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford – and I have rarely been so perplexed by a flick.
