Coach Talk
Dead Again
Well done, Dead Again. Fielding a team that won by over 38 points this past matchup. We should keep this momentum rolling as we step into our next challenge in Week 2.
Hangovers
You can take solace in the fact that your generosity this week did not go unnoticed, Hangovers. It takes a real kindred spirit to help someone like Dead Again succeed. Who knows, maybe they'll return the favor by choosing a couple of kickers early in next year's draft... or something along those lines!
