What more needs to be saidDB: Washington is woeful, woeful, woeful. Bye Jim Zorn, bye Jason Campbell, bye Clinton Portis. Philadelphia.Seattle St Louis. Louis comes away with the win on their home field.DB: With Bulger out and Kyle Boller in, I have to go with Seattle. Seattle.Kansas City San Diego EA: I am immensely proud of the Chiefs for what they did against the Steelers last week, but lightning doesn't strike twice. Arizona TennesseeEA: I'll take Arizona only if Kurt Warner is good to go. It's going to be a very long day if they have to endure a Matt Leinart start, long enough to give the Titans a window of opportunity.DB: Upset alert!!! Arizona, on the road, with a dinged up Warner. Tennessee is actually playing like a real football team lately. I think they take the Cardinals down at home. Tennessee.Pittsburgh Baltimore EA: The second most interesting game of the weekend, and I know I've been picking them to win pretty much all year, incorrectly, but I'm still going with the Ravens Let's see if they prove me right for once.

DB: This will be a fun game to watch. The Ravens have been just ever so close to winning more games and just can’t close the show. But this week I am picking them to win, again. Baltimore. This game wasn't expected to be very significant coming into the season, but at this point, this looks like it could shape up to be the best, most interesting, and very much so the most significant game of the year I could go as far as to call it a Super Bowl preview. These two teams are among the best in football, and you all know who I WANT to win, but out of superstition I will abstain from picking a winner on this one at this point in time.DB: Wow, what amatch-up. This could be abarn burner where the last team that has the ball wins. Or it could be a blow out by either team. The Patriots have a lot of weaknesses on defense but so do the Saints. And just think, two Parcells guys, Belichick and Sean Payton matching wits. I think New England is going to do what it failed to do against the Colts and knock the Saints off their perch. New England.. Jerry Falwell, saysthat the Israeli offensive into the Gaza Strip is a just war."Within hours of the December 19 expiration of the 'truce' declared by Hamasin June, the terrorist organization greatly accelerated the firing of QassamRockets, mortar shells, and Grad Missiles deep into Israeli populationcenters, purposely targeting civilians," said Jonathan Falwell, who since 2007has assumed hosting and speaking responsibilities on the national televisionprogram Thomas Road Live and also writes a weekly column forworldnetdaily .Falwell added, "Within a single week 209 such projectiles had been fired,jeopardizing the safety of hundreds of thousands of Israeli citizens andforcing the closure of 416 schools, 1,367 kindergartens and causing over195,000 Israeli children to hide day after day at home or in undergroundshelters.No other country in the world, with the means to do so, would standby while her sovereignty was so blatantly violated and her citizens soegregiously terrorized."Falwell continued, "Therefore, it is my conviction, that the Israeli offensiveinto the Gaza Strip was forced upon Israel and became an effort of last resortby a sovereign state to defend her citizenry.I am convinced that the Israelioffensive was provoked solely by Hamas - the same organization that, in thelast several years, has been responsible for numerous suicide bombings ofbuses, restaurants, cafes and supermarkets inside Israel.Hamas has almostexclusively targeted Israeli civilians, and has fired its rockets and mortarsfrom its own most densely packed population centers in order to force Israel,in spite of its best efforts, to involve Palestinian civilians when defendingitself.""Christians need to clearly understand that in spite of the internationalcommunity's best efforts, Hamas has refused to cease violence, recognizeIsrael, and respect agreements signed between Israel and the Palestinianauthority," said Falwell."Hamas has continued daily to fire projectiles into Israeli territory evenwhile Israel has continued to allow the free flow of humanitarian aid intoGaza.""Clearly, Hamas, by continuing to rain down rockets and mortars on Israel, isknowingly, and with premeditation, inflicting horrific and totally unjustifiedsuffering on its own people.This brutal and inhumane exploitation ofcivilian populations as political fodder must cease.""I feel great sorrow for the suffering endured by both innocent Palestiniansand Israelis at the hands of this terrorist organization.May God bless them,and may God bring peace to Israel.I encourage Christians worldwide to prayfor the peace of Jerusalem (Psalms 122:6)."SOURCEThomas Road Baptist ChurchKathy Rusk of Thomas Road Baptist Church, 1-434-239-9281, 1-434-832-2006,.
All stats/point values are based on ESPN scoring.Individual production or points will vary based on the scoring system being used. Well, after a 10-week hiatus, "Start Em/Sit Em" is back.The last time I had enough time to bang out one of these, things were pretty accurate.Of course, these were the days when Ray Rice was still relatively unknown to fantasy owner (except this guy), and Brandon Jacobs was still expected to be a fantasy powerhouse.My how the times have changed.Regardless, for some leagues Week 12 is the last week of the regular season.And while it may seem that this season has flown by, there are still quality games left to play.This week sports the all-important Thanksgiving games, alongside a dish of exciting Sunday melees.All while the question remains: Who to start Who to sitFantasy Football Week 12 101 begins now. QuarterbacksAaron RodgersOh, how forgiving the NFC North is.One week there is a battle of defensive titans, the next week reimbursement with a 32-ounce steak.I sure hope Aaron Rodgers likes lion.Start EmThe Packers take on the Lions at Ford Field in a Turkey Day matchup, and feast they shall. Rodgers has not fallen below 18 points since Week One, so do not expect this to change, even on short rest.He has roasted some of the best defenses in the league (Minnesota twice), and shows absolutely no signs of stopping.His receivers are finally beginning to step-up, as demonstrated by the sudden awakening of Greg Jennings against the 49ers.Oh, and did I mention that hes playing the Lions, a team that allowed 37 points to a stagnant Cleveland offense last week Jay CutlerIn sports, the coach will always tell you to trust your instincts.Apparently, Jay Cutler never played Pop Warner as a child.Cutler has been incredibly indecisive thus far, sporting 18 interceptions to back this claim.That is three more than he has touchdowns.Sit EmFantasy owners took a gigantic gamble when drafting Cutler this year (myself included).His natural abilities are fantastic, but he does not have nearly as much talent around him as he did in Denver.He's also playing in the ever-fluctuating NFC North.This week he goes against the Minnesota Vikings, who bring a superior pass rush to the table.Though their secondary is less than impressive, Cutler will need to think on his feet, and it just does not seem possible after his outings during the past few weeks. Ben RoethlisbergerThis is arguably one of the toughest choices for Week 12, as Big Ben is coming off a concussion-like injury in a devastating overtime loss to the Kansas City Chiefs last week.He is up against division-rival Baltimore, and his only healthy backup has just one completion in his career.Start EmHere is the bottom line: Ben has two championships under his belt, he has failed to achieve double-digit fantasy points only once this year, and he is one of the most clutch quarterbacks in football.He enjoys playing under pressure, and under Sunday night lights, this will not be a problem. The Ravens defense has not been what many expected them to become, but they are coming off a rather impressive performance against MVP-candidate Peyton Manning.Thankfully for Roethlisberger, he has tons of help on offense around him, and they should be able to bail him out of trouble if need be.Start him at your own will though, as this is not a gimme by any means. NotablesMatthew Stafford-Sit EmEli Manning-Start EmAlex Smith-Start EmMatt Cassel-Sit EmJoe Flacco-Sit EmMatt Hasselback-Start EmWild CardMatt Schaub vs. He should get a fair amount of looks against the team, but the lack of certainty in this offense scares any Bears fan.If hes your best option, obviously start him, but if you have some other mild name backs, give them a try in Week 12. Marion Barber IIILet us be real, MBIII has had a horrific season for his standards.The guy was supposed to come in and revitalize the Cowboys, but much like the entire NFC East, it all has been a gigantic disappointment.Need proofThey beat the Redskins 7-6.Dallas plays Oakland on Thanksgiving, playing Marion on short rest.Start EmWhile it is short rest for a man whos health has been in question, it would be very unlikely for Oakland to pull off two upsets in a row.Their two upset wins have come at home, and they have to go into the palace that is Cowboys Stadium for this matchup.Perhaps Barber wont put up incredible numbers, but he is undoubtedly a very solid play for Week 12. Ray RiceIs it too early to say I told you so Nah.
There is a reason I drafted Ray Rice in all eight of my fantasy leagues this year, and all you need to do to see it is watch a Ravens game.The team has plummeted from early season glory, losing five of their last seven games.Yet through it all, Ray seems to be the holy grail for the team, consistently sporting double-digit points for fantasy owners.Start EmAs mentioned earlier, the Ravens square off against the Steelers in a prime-time grudge match.The Steelers are battered and bruised, and have been faltering defensively of late.Even if the Ravens lose 41-7, that seven will come from Ray Rice.The team will continue to ride his back, and he will continue to produce. NotablesRicky Williams-Start EmMichael Turner-Sit EmPierre Thomas-Sit EmAhmad Bradshaw-Sit EmThomas Jones-Start EmFred Jackson-Start EmWild CardSteve Slaton vs. Indianapolis Wide ReceiversSteve Smith, PanthersWill all of the Steve Smith believers raise their hands Not many.Sure, Smith put up 15 points and 14 points respectively in the past two weeks, but he faces one of the leagues best corners in Darrelle Revis this week versus the Jets.He entered this season as a favorite to put up spectacular numbers but has failed to do so thus far.Sit EmYes, it is true the Jets are slumping.Nobody will deny that.But Rex Ryan is still a defensive coach, and the team is hungry for a win.Expect Jake Delhomme to get picked apart (no pun intended), in which Smith could ultimately suffer as well.Jake overthrew Smith three times in the end zone in their Week 11 loss to the Dolphins, and it would not be surprising to see more of the same in Week 12. Mike Sims-WalkerOne of the surprising bright spots behind the Jaguars productive season, Sims-Walker has proven to be amongst the elite.He is a top-15 receiver, and has eclipsed 10 points in his last three outings. This week he is up against the San Francisco 49ers, a team that allowed Greg Jennings to simply roast them.Start EmSure, a majority of the offensive production for Jacksonville comes off of the rush, but Garrard and Jack Del Rio evidently have faith in this rising star. Though hes not a guarantee to go wild, he surely has the potential, and should benefit anyone who he starts for this week. Brandon MarshallDon't be discouraged based on his Week 11 performance fantasy owners.
