Every week during the preseason and season, I will throw out some quick observations of the previous NFL week. With the invention of the DVR and Directv’s ”Quick Bits”, I am able to watch every snap of every game and give you a lightning “blitz” war “krieg” to bring to your fantasy league for domination. The fake games have ended, so bring on some real football! 

After less than a minute of watching the Seattle o-line, it was clear that they struggle to run block and that TE Zach Miller may be stuck doing that for often than not.  Oakland’s Michael Bush ran strong, but didn’t make any plays that his o-line didn’t create for him.  Leon Washington looked to be a better back than Justin Forsett.  Charlie Whitehurst played better than Tavarius Jackson, but the level of competition was lacking.  Taiwan Jones hear footsteps in his 2nd preseason game, I hope he gets over that soon.

The Stafford to Calvin Johnson connection worked for a long completion.  Fantasy owners hope this continues. Jerome Harrison looked ready to step up in the Mikel Leshoure role, forget Aaron Brown. CJ Spiller, despite being very streaky, is looking like he will play more of a role this year.  Fitzpatrick’s numbers were down this game, but there were many drops by the receivers. For the rest click here:
