2011 D.A. Fantasy Football — Week 11.

Case Keenum Sr.

So,  Matt Stafford took home the weekly D.A. in week 10.  It made me think of the Lions and their struggle to find a QB.  It’s been ongoing.  When Rodney Peete and Jon Kitna are considered the success stories, you’ve got yourself an issue.  Who was their last good QB?  Bobby Layne?  I have no idea.  Anyway, the Lions have had their share of busts.  Every team misses on the occasional draft pick, but the Lions do it with such flair.  Remember Andre Ware?  He went 7th overall. Sigh. He made six career starts.  You’d like to think a guy taken 7th could at least make seven starts, but no, it wasn’t meant to be for Andre Ware.  Ware was really a product of a bygone era when stats in college meant everything.  If things were still like they were in the late 80s, Case Keenum would be going #1 overall.  Colt Brennan would have been a top-5 pick.

Perhaps you’re wondering when the Lions realized they made a mistake with Andre Ware.  Well, I’ve got a pretty good idea it was after he made his first start.  It was quite a debut for Ware in 1990.  The Lions sent him out in week 9 against the Vikings.  Ware’s main job was to hand off to Barry Sanders, but he found the time to go 5 of 11 for 48 yards.  He threw 2 INTs and was replaced by Bob Gagliano.  Who?  Gagliano?  Good gracious.  So, on that maiden voyage for Ware it was 40 DA Points and a fast track out of the league.

  1. Quick math puts the total at 37.5 points, that’s unofficial…

    The stats department says you’ve bettered that total on 3 occasions this season.

  2. Visually, you probably should have done even better in D.A. It was so very ugly, and yet they weren’t really turning the ball over. Denver doesn’t even give Tebow the chance to turn it over–or get sacked much. He’s a tough one to figure out.
