The Morning Fix

Now, I wasn’t the only fantasy football writer to be “down” on Bowe last summer. But in retrospect I was crushingly slow to admit how wrong my opinion was. See the accompanying chart for a look at where I ranked Bowe on a weekly basis during last season, along with the fantasy points he subsequently scored in that week.

Between both parties there are 20 lawyers listed on their documents – seven with the players and 13 with the league. In their briefs, both sides list dozens of past court decisions to back up their opinions, including cases involving the United Mine Workers, the International Association of Bridge, Structural and Ornamental Iron Workers, the Milk Wagon Drivers Union in a case that goes back to 1940 and the National Woodwork Manufacturing Association.

Mike Vrabel, linebacker, Kansas City: Vrabel is 35 and the Chiefs have not committed to bringing him back. Still, I could see Kansas City wanting Vrabel for one more season in 2011 if he wants to play. I could see Vrabel — who is heavily involved in the NFLPA — deciding to retire if there is no football this season.

Casey Wiegmann, center, Kansas City: Wiegmann is still deciding whether he wants to play in 2011 or not. The general consensus is that Wiegmann, who’ll turn 38 in July, will decide to play in 2011 because he may be refreshed by an extended offseason. The Chiefs want him back. Yet, a lost season could keep Wiegmann at home for good.
