Merlin's Magic: Week Three

Finally, in the second half of the Atlanta game, our offense started to move the ball and look, at times,  like an NFL-type offense. Thigpen, who has looked bad at QB made a play or two, supporting a running game. Yes, we actually had a running game, for a half. Was this a tease or a sign of things to come? Well, I am thinking it’s a tease, though I would love to be wrong. I haven’t seen enough from this team to think it’s anything more than a tease. We have to get a lot more consistent before it becomes a sign of us turning the corner.

Random Thoughts:

Tyler Thigpen keeps proving he is not ready to be an NFL QB. Stop running him out there. This is hurting the development of the other young players. Huard needs to start to settle things down.

Why is Herb Taylor not starting either at RG or RT? This one baffles me. Now, Herm has a point when he says offensive line consistency is very important. He is right about that. However, What makes anyone think that D-Mac can get the job done at RT? Richardson hasn’t been active for any game this year. So, I am OK with the idea that he is not ready for the NFL yet. This still leaves the question of why Herb Taylor is sitting on the bench.

I really feel for LJ. He looks beyond frustrated and I can’t blame him. Fix the damn O-Line!

J.P. Losman would be a QB I would look at signing in the off-season.

Congrats to Adam for doing a piece on Fox Sports.

Fantasy League Notes:

The Maine Bears have been carried by Marion Barber all year. I shudder to see what happens to my team if he has a bad game.

Eleven teams (out of fourteen) are either 2-1 or 1-2. This looks like a fun, balanced league. Congrats to everyone playing.

You know you are having a bad fantasy game when one of your running backs gets more points (one) from tackles than from yardage.

It’s tough to lose by a point and only get one point out of Brian Westbrook.

Coming next week, Merlin’s Quarterly Review. Hence, I am holding back a bit this week. I am planning on reviewing my projections and taking a look at where we stand and what positions we should be looking at in the 2009 draft.
