Championship weekend afterthoughts

I have less thoughts this weekend, mostly because of the crazy-busy nature of my weekend. The fiancee and I have been running around doing stuff to get ready for the wedding in two months.

But I did get to watch football this weekend which was a blessing. The football season is winding down now with only two teams remaining (Patriots and Giants, if you did not know already), of which I correctly chose one last week.

Hit the jump for my Championship weekend afterthoughts.

  • I feel bad for LaDainian Tomlinson. I doubt getting injured in the playoffs hurts his draft stock next year, but maybe his age is a cause for the injury. Tomlinson may be getting to the point where he is starting to break down at the end of the season.
  • Is this it for Brett Favre? The guy made a genius out of his fantasy owners this year and improved his standing in the quarterback rankings for next year. That is, if he comes back to play.
  • Michael Turner played well enough in LT2’s stead to earn that big paycheck this spring. Free agency should be fun this year.
  • Phillip Rivers showed a lot of toughness yesterday, but the interceptions and lack of touchdowns in the redzone were costly for the Chargers. He should see a slight jump in draft standing next year.
  • Tom Brady was pretty pedestrian yesterday, but that should not adversely affect his fantasy value next season.
  • Laurence Maroney produced another great outing for the Pats. I know several owners — myself included — were frustrated with Maroney this year. But if the Patriots commit to the running game like they have the last few weeks, Maroney would be a steal as a second-round pick next year.
  • Plaxico Burress continued his nearly miraculous season with a superb effort against Al Harris and the Packers last night. Hopefully he can get that ankle healthy this offseason. Regardless, though, he should be a top-10 wide receiver in many fantasy rankings next summer.
  • I could not say more about Eli Manning’s postseason. Incredible. If you got the guy late in a keeper league, now may be the time to keep him.
