Why is the death of Brian Urlacher's mother in the news? Why is it that everywhere I turn, sports pundits on TV and radio feel the need to weigh in on their thoughts on whether Urlacher should or should not play this weekend against the Saints?

Two years after a 1-15 record, the St. Louis Rams were hoping to make 2011 a memorable year with their first playoff berth since 2004.  They probably aren’t saying the same thing after the NFL’s opening weekend.

Fantasy Football: Week 1 Start & Sit Recap

Correct calls on 50 percent of the forecast

Here's a scoring recap of how Week 1's Start or Sit worked out. Needless to say, I fell flat on my face, much like the Steelers' defense, with the call to sit Ray Rice. However, I take some solace in the fact my sneaky start of the week, Kenny Britt, did outscore Ray Rice. It's very little solace of course.

Fantasy Football: Ask Athlon Week 2

Houston's Jacoby Jones a good flex play against a reeling Dolphins secondary

We told you in the preseason that the tight end class was as deep as it's ever been, so there was no reason to reach for the position in your fantasy football draft.

So are we surprised to see Buffalo's Scott Chandler leading all tight ends after Week 1 with 20.8 points and Arizona's Jeff King ninth with 13.10 points? Of course we are.

Michelle Williams is going to play Marilyn Monroe in an upcoming movie. We're not exactly sure why. Yes, she's a pretty good actress, but can she pull off the sultry, steamy sexiness that Marilyn exuded? We have yet to see it.

49ers' Ginn Joins Even More Historic Company

<br />

Multiple stories about the San Francisco 49ers' 33-17 Week 1 victory over the Seattle Seahawks mention kick returner Ted Ginn Jr.'s returning a kickoff and punt for touchdowns in the same game.

Ginn became the 12th player in pro football history to accomplish that feat with his 102-yard kickoff and 55-yard punt return in a 59-second span of Sunday's season opener.

A much less publicized achievement is that the game was Ginn's second with multiple kick return touchdowns. Ginn took two kickoffs to the house against the New York Jets on November 1, 2009.

Does something about this fantasy football team's score seem odd? Defense/ST usually don't put up over 3,500 points in a decade, let alone a single game. In this team, the commissioner meant to set the defense scoring at 1 points for every 25 return yards. But he inverted it and set it at 25 points for every 1 return yard.
