Free agency has stared in the zealots leagues. You think that it will be easy to avoid the spending spree since these are final-roster-spot type of players. Then you end up bidding 4100 zbucks for Danny Ware. Ware is the fourth-string running back for the New York Giants. He was a stud at Georgia in his freshman season then he dropped down the depth chart before entering the draft after his junior year. He’s been on practice squads ever since.
Derrick Ward and Brandon Jacobs, the Giants’ double 1000-yard rushers, are both free agents, so the situation is worth watching. Ahmad Bradshaw is most likely first in line for touches if one or both guys leave. Ward’s only potentially useful in case of injury. When you start three running backs, or more accurately, can start three running backs, even these guys have potential. Ware has two career carries for 15 yards.
Missouri avenged an early season loss at Nebraska by pounding the Cornhuskers 70-47 yesterday. This looks like a 25-win team, and no Missouri team has done as well since the 1995 team that went undefeated in conference play and got a number one seed in the dance. After playing Colorado next Saturday, they have a three-game stretch against Kansas State, Kansas, and Oklahoma.
