No Vikes this week, which is great because it gives Christian Ponder more time to recover from his “injury”.  Which, if Leslie Frazier isn’t completely crazy, will last as long as it takes for Matt Cassel to demonstrate that he is turnover-prone or not. Cassel missed some throws and got lucky on two possible interceptions, but on the other hand, looked like a real NFL quarterback, got the ball out quickly, and registered a higher QB rating than Ponder has ever recorded.

Denver is looking virtually unstoppable, but we’ve seen this show from Manning before. Don’t bet the farm on the Broncos yet. New Orleans is looking formidable now that they’ve got Payton back, demonstrating that coaches are almost as important as quarterbacks in the National Football League.

I was pleased to see the Piranha of the Serengeti roar back in the late games after getting a complete goose egg from Andy Dalton subbing for the bye-weeked Aaron Rodgers. That’s the sign of a well-balanced fantasy team; one that can win without a quarterback if need be.  Dare we detect shades of the 2000 Ravens?
