Cowboys just fine?

"Amateur fantasy football players?" Is there any other kind? Is there a professional fantasy football players league? I didn't realize there was a league where I get paid to pick players no matter how I finish. Where is this league and sign me up.

As for Bledsoe being just fine...even if he didn't throw the three picks, just at look at the incompletions he threw. There's a reason two other NFL teams got rid of him. The guy is 34 freaking years old. How many starting quarterbacks are older than him? Two, three? Brett Favre and Mark Brunell? Anyone else? They're not in the best shape of their careers either.
If his back is bothering him, his days on the field could be numbered.

The guy started off hot and it just went downhill from there. It'd be one thing if he got better as the day progressed, but he got worse. OK, some of those interceptions you can blame on defensive pressure, but he was missing wide-open guys and trying to thread passes through some tricky passing lanes.

Read the Dallas and Fort Worth papers. It's not just us amateur fantasy football players that are concerned.

Brian, don't forget about Minnesota's Brad Johnson - he's old enough to be your pappy and he played pretty well against a highly touted Washington Redskins defense.

Maybe you could pick him up in your fantasy league. I'm sure he's still available.

As far as the Cowboys are concerned, why don't they get Marion Barber III involved more? Instead of a quarterback controversy, I'd like to see a running back controversy for a change.

How about Brad Johnson ... oldest offensive player in the league. He looked pretty good.

And another thing. The Texas media being concerned about one of its professional sports teams WAYYYY to early. No, that's never happened (aahemm, 2005 Houston Astros).

I just picked up James Harris for my fantasy team and I'm starting him Sunday.
