Eh, go check his annual stats - he aint doin shit. Benched in almost every fantasy league.
I'd guess that's true only in small leagues. In my 10 team league we play 3 WR/TE each.. there are not 30 guys scoring more points than him in the league. It's close, but he won't be riding the bench in my league anytime soon.

Nor mine. If he was available I would take him in a heartbeat. Getting a receiver that you know without a shadow of a doubt will be targeted 10-20 times per game is not something I would turn down. Same reason I take Tony Gonzales if I can. His average pts/game over the course of a season is reliable and he is hardly ever hurt....just like Larry F. There are obviously always going to be players that are having a better season at any given time, particularly in Larry's case where you might be the entire focus of the defense, but I will take that season long reliability any day.

@Batman: And I would think it is pretty obvious I am well aware of his stats considering my previous post. Your accusation was basically that he was a lazy player, and there just isn't anything to substantiate that. You find one clip, audio or video, of any analyst from any network making a similar claim and I would be astounded. I would be willing to bet money you can't. You are right..he plays like a former Viking...you just picked the wrong one. It ain't Moss he learned from, it is Cris Carter.

Cards wideout Larry Fitzgerald wants to buy some followers on Twitter and Facebook, and I'm totally fine with that. Bribery for a cure FTW.

He should buy some catches and hustle....looking like Moss out there ala "Larry plays when Larry wants to play"....

On pace to be the fastest man to 10000 yards. Ever.
1 drop every 200 touches...that is .5%, and there isn't anyone that is close to or lower then 1% with 100 touches or more since last season.
Last night he had his first and only drop of the season.
Franchise record of having at least one catch in 122 straight games.

The Cardinals had many problems last night, the offensive line being the huge one, which led to crappy pass protection and no running game. Larry isn't one of the problems. Him and Roberts are probably the only bright spots on the offensive side of the ball currently.

There are a whole lot of diva wide receivers in the NFL that deserve plenty of criticism for playing "when they want". He is most definitely not one of them.

Conclusions. We observed a positive association between heavier coffee consumption with risk of EG/EGS (exfoliation glaucoma or exfoliation glaucoma suspect) in this large prospective study.]

Bummer. I only drink two cups a day, and risk was increased at 3, but still.

It's James Bond Day in honour of the 50th anniversary of the films. I'm pretty stoked to see Skyfall.
I'm the right age that I should have been a big Bond guy the first time around. But it never happened, I a saw a couple of the films, but never got the bug. I've also never read any of the books. But I've enjoyed the Daniel Craig Bond quite a bit (minus the Texas Hold'em scene in Casino Royale) I've become a Craig fan. I thought he did a fine job in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

Yeah it's the one with the gators. As for the racist elements, they added Sheriff J.W. Pepper to balance it out. That's why he is the way he is. It's actually one of the first films with black stuntmen in it. The first with a black woman as a bond girl. So yeah... I think it definitely helped more than anything?

I thought the last film sucked badly. Even worse than Live and Let Die which keeps growing on me every time I watch it (why? dont know).
I have a soft spot for the movie because of Jane Seymour. Damn she was a hottie back then!

The problem with QoS was a really weak villain. The guy is a decent actor, but not a good pick for a major Bond villain.

And Craig has aged very badly, not sure if he'll get to his fourth at this rate.

He's set for 2 more...

It was a victim of the writer's strike.

daniel-craig-says-writers-strike-ruined-quantum-of-solace

We couldn’t employ a writer to finish it. I say to myself, ‘Never again,’ but who knows? There was me trying to rewrite scenes – and a writer I am not.’”

Craig goes on to say that there was no other option but for him to help write scenes with director Marc Forster, and that the film wasn’t supposed to connect to Casino Royale at all. Whoops. “Me and the director [Marc Forster] were the ones allowed to do it. The rules were that you couldn’t employ anyone as a writer, but the actor and director could work on scenes together,”

Best to forget it happened.

I'm mixed. The trailer seemed very same same. And Craig has aged very badly, not sure if he'll get to his fourth at this rate. That said I don't want them to spend another 10 years picking the next guy.

Can't wait to pick up my boxset of the originals and watch Diamonds are Forever in HD.

New song... seems alright. Better than that turd they dropped out last time. *shivers* Guh! [Edit] What upsets me most is that Jack White wrote Seven Nation Army as his unofficial Bond theme song, so I was excited to see what he would come up with then that... other creature joined in... and they made the worst song yet.
