Show Notes and News

Hey folks

So I just finished editing and re-uploading the Thundering Blurb Fantasy Podcast. There were some massive technical difficulties and I had to download the show, edit out about 20 minutes of silence, then reupload it - all of which took about 2hours.

If you tried to listen to the show earlier than midnight Wednesday night - give it another shot sometime Thursday and you should be good to go.

They are getting the bugs out now, so this should be unlikely to repeat in the season.

Some late news - the lateness of the hour may make tomorrow's initial update a little tardy itself.

I'll make it up to you baby, I swear!

News and Notes

Atlanta Falcons
Matt Ryan, Brian Finneran and DJ Shockley were involved in a car accident Wednesday but nobody was hurt - they were rear ended at a stop light in slippery and wet conditions. They made the team's plane for Baltimore and I think Art Blank just about had a heart attack.

Baltimore Ravens
Chris Mortenson is at it again - although he's probably right on this one for sure. Looks like the earlier report that Kyle Boller might have a torn labrum and the Ravens are hoping soem rest and rehab might do the trick as surgery will end his season in all likelihood. In a move sure to salve all Raven-fan's worry, they claimed QB Casey Bramlet off waivers from San Diego. Yup, THAT Casey Bramlet. Wait, you don't know who he is? He's.... um, hold on.... he's uh - oh yeah, he was a former World Bowl MVP who was picked by the Bengals in 2004.

How could this team be interested in John Beck when they have Bramlet? Know what this smells like? Disaster. If the Ravens don't do something soon, this season is going to go very, very badly. Hope Troy Smith's tonsils get better soon.

Houston Texans
In a move to save his rear from the firing squad, Ahman Green has restructured his contract. He's taking a lot less money, but if he plays a lot this season, he can earn a ton more money.

Yup, I don't believe he'll see a dime either. I love Ahman Green's fire and heart - but his body just doesn't hold up anymore. He'll hang around this year - with little no no fantasy value mind you - and then probably call it a day.

That's all for now. I'll have a post tomorrow morning - maybe lunchtime for you Easterners - and don't forget the Drive Block goes live at 10pm EST/7pm PST for two hours of me, Sigmund Bloom and Cecil Lammey.

And 2 hours of Lammey is a lot of Lammey - you get your money's worth.
