          <p id="yui_3_4_1_1_1323463398986_562">Fourth-round pick <span class="ysp-player">Casey Matthews</span>
          has struggled in his first season in Philadelphia, not living up to the
          lofty expectations his surname carries. While his brother Clay stars in
          Green Bay and his uncle Bruce has a bust in Canton, Casey has played
          mainly on special teams throughout the Eagles' disappointing 2011
          campaign.</p>



          Recently, that led to his hometown fans taunting his fiancee.He told Philly.com's Les Bowen that she was with her aunt and young cousin:</p>
          <p style="padding-left:30px;">"They harassed [them] and made my fiancee
          cry. It's tough. It's frustrating. That's just how they are here. If you
          win they love you, so I guess we've just got to turn things around and
          just start winning again."</p>
          Matthews should be upset. Heckling a family wearing the jersey of a
          player is low, even for Philadelphia. But part of me thinks some of this
          is on Matthews.

            Demps is “disconsolate” over the heavy-handed move from the
            commissioner’s office, a source told Y! Sports. Demps considered
            resigning his job on Thursday, league sources said, and had to be talked
            out of it. The Hornets had scored a terrific deal for Paul, a trade
            that was lauded by some of Demps’ peers throughout the league. Officials
            involved in the trade talks said the league office was consulted
            throughout the negotiations, and there was never an indication Demps
            didn’t have the power to make a deal. In fact, several teams negotiating
            with New Orleans to get Paul asked the league office and were told
            Demps had full authority to execute a trade.

                  We all remember where we were when <a class="flexpop">Brian Westbrook</a>
                  took a knee instead of walking in for a touchdown (also against Dallas,
                  also Week 15) in 2007. It was the difference between winning and
                  losing for thousands of owners. But perhaps no Westbrook-induced loss
                  was more painful than the story of a Wall Street guy who plays in a
                  million-dollar league with other financial titans. That knee cost him
                  $600,000. </p>

                  Randomly, just Thursday, Brian Westbrook
                  was here at ESPN doing a bunch of interviews and we chatted a bit. He
                  told me, even four years later, not a day goes by that someone doesn't
                  talk to him about that play and how it either won or lost them a fantasy
                  game. I told him about the 600K guy. He just shook his head. That
                  was a new one, even for Brian.</p>

                    @DanFXC: Lost by .6 because Dallas iced their own kicker.</p>

                    @bradhensley
                    :What about a simple pic? Could have sat my D/ST and won. He missed
                    playoffs by 1/2 game. (Included was a picture of the Giants' D/ST's -10
                    points against the Packers, and the final score of 107-98.</p>

                    @wmcmillan6:
                    Went to sleep up .9 after MNF (in the) 1st round (of the playoffs) last
                    year. Stat update: Browns +1 sack = I woke up down .1, final. Crushed.</p>

                    @shimonmds: Last week I lost to someone who started <a class="flexpop">Peyton Manning</a>! Needless to say, neither of us are making the playoffs.</p>

                    @hartleysworld: 2009 I'm No. 1 seed need 8 points with <a class="flexpop">Marion Barber</a>. He gets 47 yrds/14 RUSH, 22 yds REC and stopped 4 (times) in a row on 1 yard line.</p>

                    @Mestblinknfggc:
                    Down by 1.6, PPR, M. Lewis catches it, puts me up by .2, then fumbles.
                    That was the end of the scoring for both teams.</p>

                    @shaine_69: We have yardage bonuses at 100, <a class="flexpop">Fred Davis</a> at 99, Romo at 299, CJ2K knocked me out of playoff contention by last place guy.</p>

                    @blairCmcdonald: 103.40 - 103.15 in Week 4. <a class="flexpop">Eli Manning</a> takes a knee 3 times in final minutes in win versus Arizona. Lose .3 and the matchup</p>

                    @DucalCrownRalph:
                    Easy. Last year, down by 4.5 in semifinals, AP sits out MNF, can't add
                    anyone. Ended up 3rd, shoulda won it all #badbeat.</p>

                    @majorleaguenerd:
                    Week 3 SNF, Ben kneels to set up field goal. minus-2 rush yards. League
                    scores to 2 decimal places. Lost by 0.08. Missed playoffs by 1 game.</p>

                    @Mawam: League didn't allow pick-ups after Thursday night game, Prater injured in practice on Friday. Lost by 2 points</p>

                    @UpperRDL: Finally got the GF to play. She's picking 6th, I'm 7th. Wanting to be sneaky I tell her to draft <a class="flexpop">Aaron Rodgers</a> so I could get Vick. Doh!</p>

                              During training camp, Eli Manning raised some eyebrows by saying he considers himself one of the NFL’s elite quarterbacks. Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan says Manning is absolutely right about his status.</p>


                              The guy’s playing excellent,”
                              Ryan said of Manning, via ESPNDallas.com. “He does a great job. He’s
                              got an unbelievable touch. He will stand in there in the face of a damn
                              hurricane and throw the ball. He’s really tough. We’re looking forward
                              to this challenge. We’ve played some great quarterbacks during the year
                              and this guy is no exception. He’s really playing well. He’s in that
                              elite group for sure.”</p>


                              Ryan is preparing a game plan for Manning for Sunday night’s
                              Giants-Cowboys game, and he said he thinks his players have their hands
                              full.</p>


                              “If you watch the tape the last two weeks, you don’t want to watch
                              it,” Ryan said. “Eli Manning threw 22 straight completions against the
                              Saints, hung up 35 points against the world champion defense supposedly
                              [Green Bay]. We’re up for a big challenge here, but our guys are ready
                              to go. We’re anxious about this game. We’ve done our preparation and we
                              can’t wait until it gets here.”</p>


                              The Cowboys are a game ahead of the Giants in the NFC East and can
                              probably win the division with a split of their two remaining games. But
                              Ryan says he thinks his team can’t afford to lose to the Giants at
                              home.</p>


                              “Down the stretch here, is this a must win?” Ryan asked. “In my opinion, yes it is. We need to win this game.”</p>
