Tuesday Night Free for All

Since this is our first blog experience, we started out knowing absolutely nothing about writing a blog and have worked our way up to knowing just a little.  One of the things that has made this enjoyable for us is that we can do it our way and learn as we go.  We decided that Tuesdays …

Game Day Decisions

Several injuries made today’s lineup decisions difficult due to questionable players.  When the player is questionable, not only is it up in the air if he will play or not, but also, if he does play – how much playing time he will have and how well he will perform.  NFL players put their whole heart …
