LeBron’s taking his talents to Seattle


Picture sent to LeBron James, from Pete Carroll, via Twitter

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll–former great recruiting head coach for University of Southern California–is once again casting his devious black magics. His target this time? LeBron James.

In what has been an entertaining series of tweets between James, and other notable NFL personalities, has led to the creation of his very own Seahawks jersey (pictured in the above image).

Don’t you agree, LeBron would look great catching touchdowns over the middle of the field as a TE in a hawks jersey? Even with the NBA lockout in effect, this is sadly in the realm of pure fantasy.

Bonus:

Football might not be in LeBron's future, but maybe becoming a chicken? I realize it's a Cav's jersey, but I made this awhile ago.

Looking a gift horse in the mouth

Don't let the pink fool you. That's not "hot" pink, it's "full of burning rage" pink.

LaGarrette Blount can add The Indianapolis Colts to his “punched in the face” list, after rumbling for 127 yards and a score on Monday night. What’s with Blount and his unbounded hate for teams with horse mascots, anyway?

I couldn’t picture a more perfect running back for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers than Blount, even his name screams “I’m a pirate”, but my undying love of piraty things alone can’t convince me to be all in on Blount from a fantasy perspective. I still have concerns with Blount going forward. Mainly used as the 1st and 2nd down back, his carries will be limited and like most big running backs (he’s listed at, 6’0″ 247lb) he has a reckless upright running style that will make him prone to injuries, especially during this training camp shortened N.F.L. season.

I wouldn’t want to be the linebacker in “Captain” Blount’s path to his “booty,” but I wouldn’t trade away all my treasure just yet to acquire him. For now, fantasy football owners should take a wait and see approach with Blount before hopping on the boat completely.
