The Hive – week 10

The Hive – Week 10 edition

 

 

 

Welcome back to The Hive! 24 tackles. Un-flipping-real. David Harris is the new stud in the world of IDP, no doubt about it. Week 9 also showed the continued emergence of LaRon Landry, who is realizing his massive talent in

Washington

. Along with Pat Willis, this has been a very solid year for IDP rookies, and we have a couple more who are primed for huge performances this week as well. Let’s take a look at the week 10 games!

 

 

 

How we rank `em!

 

Giddyup! – YEEEHAW!!

SINS! – solid if not spectacular

Hellno! – Get it? Got it? Good.

Minnesota

Green Bay

Sunday 10am PST

 


Minnesota

 

Giddyup! –

Antoine Winfield (currently probable), Cedric Griffin, EJ Henderson

SINS! –

 

Darren Sharper, Ray Edwards

Hellno! –

Erasmus James

 

 


Green Bay

 

Giddyup! –

Nick Barnett, AJ Hawk, Atari Bigby, Aaron Kampman

SINS! –

Brady Poppinga, Charles Woodson, Cullen Jenkins, KGB

Hellno! –

Nick Collins, Al Harris

 

 

Game notes:

This is going to be a real interesting matchup. The underrated Packers D gets a crack at rookie superstar Adrian Peterson, who is coming off setting the all time single game rushing record. Pretty damn impressive. Look for the Pack to air it out, which should mean huge games for Winfield and

Griffin

. Winfield is probable, and him at 80% is better than most IDP DB’s at 100%, no doubt about it. For the Pack I like all the guys who have to try to tackle AD, and I like Kampman vs the side of the Vikes line that gives it up like a fat girl at a keg party.

 

 

 

 


Denver

@


Kansas City

Sunday 10am PST

 


Denver

 

Giddyup! –

DJ Williams, Champ Bailey

SINS! –

 

Elvis Dumervil, Ian Gold, Nate Webster

Hellno! –

Simeon “pink slip” Rice

 

 

KC

 

Giddyup! –

Donnie Edwards, Nap Harris, Derrick Johnson, Jared Allen

SINS! –

Bernard Pollard, Jarrad Page

Hellno! –

Ty Law

 

 

Game notes:

Denver

is reeling right now, and coming into this one potentially without Javon, Cutler AND Henry. Ouch. Look for the Chiefs to take advantage. For Denver DJ should be solid even with no LJ on the other side, and Champ will bounce back and forth between covering Bowe and Gonzo, so he should be plenty busy. On the Chiefs side of the ball Jared Allen should go nuts against a sub-par line, and the LB’s should be solid for you.

 

 

 

 

Buffalo @ Miami

 Sunday


10am PST

 


Buffalo

 

Giddyup! –

 

Angelo Crowell, Aaron Schobel, Terrance McGee

SINS! –

Donte Whitner

Hellno! –

 

John DiGiorgio

 

 


Miami

 

Giddyup! –

 

Jason Taylor

SINS! –

 

Channing Crowder, Matt Roth

Hellno! –

Zach Thomas

 

 

Game notes:

This is going to be another ugly game, really only watchable if you are a

Buffalo

fan who hates them some Dolphins. This could be the big blow up week Schobel owners have been waiting for, and Crowell should be an IDP factor. For

Miami

, Crowder
should be huge, but every time Thomas is out and I predict a big one for Crowder he gets 4 or 5 tackles, so you are on your own there.

 

 

 


St Louis

@


New Orleans

Sunday 10am PST

 

STL

 

Giddyup! –

OJ Atogwe, Will Witherspoon, Tye Hill

SINS! –

Clifton

Ryan, Corey Chaveous

Hellno! –

Leonard Little

 

 

NO

 

Giddyup! –

Jason David, Roman Harper, Will Smith

SINS! –

Josh Bullucks, Scott Fujita

Hellno! –

Charles Grant

 

 

Game notes:

This one should be a real aerial show, as neither team has a secondary worth a damn. I expect lots of points, and lots of tackles for your DB’s. I’m less excited about Witherspoon if it turns out it will be Stecker and Thomas instead of Bush, but it sounds like Bush will play.

 

 

 

 


Cleveland

@


Pittsburgh

Sunday 10am PST

 


Cleveland

 

Giddyup! –

 

Sean Jones

,

Leon

Williams, Leigh Bodden, Eric Wright

SINS! –

 

Andra Davis, Kamerion Wimbley

Hellno! –

Orpheous Roye

 

 


Pittsburgh

 

Giddyup! –

Ike Taylor,

Troy

Polamalu, James Harrison, James Farrior

SINS! –

Anthony Smith

Hellno! –

Lawrence

Timmons

 

 

Game notes:

I think this might be a much better game than anyone thinks it will be. Derek Anderson is clutch, and I don’t think

Cleveland

will win, but they will put up a hell of a fight in my opinion. Both teams are vulnerable through the air, and both teams’ QB’s and WR’s are HOT, so I like all the DB’s in this affair.

 

 

 

 


Jacksonville

@


Tennessee

Sunday 10am PST

 


Jacksonville

 

Giddyup! –

Mike Peterson, Reggie Nelson

SINS! –

Rashean Mathis, Daryl Smith

Hellno! –

Justin Durant, Clint Ingram

 

 


Tennessee

 

Giddyup! –

Kyle Vanden Bosch

SINS! –

Keith Bulluck, Chris Hope, Nick Harper

Hellno! –

Albert Haynesworth

 

 

Game notes:

I couldn’t possibly care less about this game.

Tennessee

has to be the crappiest team with the best record in the league right now, and

Jacksonville

is just God awful when Garrard isn’t on the field. Pray for a MJD vs Lendale showdown, as neither passing attack is worth squat. If the running games heat up we might even see some production out of (gasp!) Keith Bulluck and Chris Hope. Dare to dream!

 

 

 

 


Philadelphia

@


Washington

Sunday 10am PST

 

Philly

 

Giddyup! –

Trent Cole

SINS! –

Brian Dawkins, Omar Gaither, Takeo Spikes, Lito Sheppard

Hellno! –

Kearse/Howard, Sheldon Brown

 

 


Washington

 

Giddyup! –

Rocky McIntosh,

London

Fletcher, LaRon Landry

SINS! –

Sean Taylor, Shawn Springs, Andre Carter

Hellno! –

Fred Smoot, Phillip Daniels

 

 

Game notes:

For the Eagles, their IDP scene is much like the offense, one stud and a whole lot of head scratchers. Trent Cole is as solid as a DL can be, and outside of that there isn’t anyone I would want to have to count on here. Gaither is a nice sleeper LB this week after seeing what David Harris pulled off vs Portis. For the Skins I am not as high on Sean Taylor as a lot of other “experts” are this week, as though McNabb hasn’t been the stud McNabb of old, he just doesn’t throw a lot of picks. When

Taylor

isn’t getting picks he isn’t likely to help your team much, as the tackles are usually gobbled up by the stud LB’s and the young hitting machine they have at SS. In fact, I’d rather start Landry if I were to start a Skins DB, no doubt about it.

 

 

 


Cincinnati

@


Baltimore

Sunday


1:05pm PST

 

Cincy

 

Giddyup! –

Madieu Williams, Landon Johnson

SINS! –

Jonathan Joseph, Robert Geathers

Hellno! –

Justin Smith

 

 


Baltimore

 

Giddyup! –

Terrell Suggs

SINS! –

Bart Scott, Ray Lewis

Hellno! –

Ed Reed

 

 

Game notes:

This is a must win for both teams, and as division rivals I think both teams will leave it all on the field. Unfortunately neither team has been an IDP hotbed this season. For the Ravens that is especially depressing. The days of plugging in Ray and Ed are gone gone gone my friends. I feel old. Ray is a marginal LB at best, and Ed Reed isn’t startable at all.

 

 

 


Detroit

Arizona

Sunday


1:15pm PST

 


Detroit

 

Giddyup! –

 

Ernie Sims,

Paris

Lenon, Fernando Bryant

Giddyup! –

Calvin Pace

SINS! –

Adrian Wilson, Terrance Holt, Rod Hood, Karlos Dansby (check the injury reports and make sure he doesn’t have a setback), Calvin Pace

Hellno! –

Monty Beisel

 

 

Game notes:

I am actually quite excited for this one. I’m hoping by downgrading Adrian Wilson he will finally break out of his funk to spite me. I can hope, right?

Wilson

has been useless lately, and he isn’t healthy. The Cards DB’s should be busy, and last week marked the return to IDP relevance of Antrel Rolle. He could be a nice fill in for a CB required league, he should be on your wire unless his mom is in the league with you.

 

 

 

Dallas @ New York Giants Sunday 1:15pm PST

 

Dallas

 

Giddyup! –

Demarcus Ware, Roy Williams

SINS! –

Terrance Newman, Anthony Henry, Bradie James

Hellno! –

Tank Johnson

 

 

NY

 

Giddyup! –

Gibril Wilson, Antonio Pierce, Giants DL’s

SINS! –

Matthias Kiwanuka, Aaron Ross, Kawicka Mitchell

Hellno! –

Sam Madison

 

 

Game notes:

This will be one of the better games of the day in my opinion. As far as the IDP’s are concerned there are a lot of big names involved here, start the usual suspects on both sides. If you need a CB this week I like the prospects of Aaron Ross against Romo and the boys.

Yay! My team will be 2-7 after this week! WHEEEEEEE! Move on.

 

 

 


Indianapolis

@


San Diego

Sunday


5:15pm PST

 

Indy

 

Giddyup! –

Bob Sanders, Gary Brackett, Marlin Jackson

SINS! –

Freddy Keiaho (check the injury reports), Mathis/Freeney, Kelvin Hayden

Hellno! –

Tyjuan Hagler

 

 

SD

 

Giddyup! –

Stephen Cooper, Marlon McCree, Drayton

Florence

SINS! –

Antonio Cromartie, Shawne Merriman

Hellno! –

Quentin Jammer, Shaun Phillips

 

 

Game notes:

 

For Indy the LB’s are all gimpy, but as long as Brackett and Keiaho are playing you should probably start them vs LT. Jammer and Phillips are out for San Diego, and since it looks like Marvin will either be out or a shell of what healthy Marvin is, that means Florence will be on Wayne, giving him a great matchup. Super soph Cromartie will be playing on the other side, and if the Chargers are smart they will put him on Dallas Clark and let Weddle or some other scrub cover Moorehead. Not like it takes much to cover him.

 

 


San Francisco

Seattle

Monday


5:30pm PST

 

SF

 

Giddyup! –

Giddyup! –

Julian Peterson, Lofa Tatupu, Marcus Trufant

SINS! –

Leroy Hill, Deon Grant, Darryl Tapp

Hellno! –

Pat Kerney

 

 

Game notes:

 

*Ahem* FLEX SCHEDULING!!!! What a rotten Monday Night game. Other than having Darryl Tapp (who I am not expecting a huge game out of) in a couple of leagues and Marques Douglas in another I have no interest in this game whatsoever. I really don’t know why they couldn’t flip this with the Cowboys Giants game or the Vikings Packers game instead of forcing this monstrosity uopon us all after a tough day of work. Start the LB’s and the #1 CB’s in this one and then go wash your eyes out with soap.

 

 

 

 

 

That’s about it for week 10. Good luck in all your IDP leagues this week, we are headed down the home stretch! Thanks for stopping by and see you next week!
