We'll be honest: Scramble for the Ball gets pretty dorky this week. Mid-90's video games? Check. ABC TGIF opening? Check. The rules for a Yahoo league approximating PAR? Check. I think the only thing missing is ... oh, wait. D&D references? Check.

Welcome to the NFC, otherwise known as the "Well, someone has to win games in this division" conference. What would you set the Falcons' line at? Can Vegas borrow that? Plus, Travis Henry has a posse ... of babies.

The yearly tradition continues as Bill looks over the AFC teams and forecasts a gloomy year for some of last year's favorites. Actually, most all of them. Plus: Gil Thorp holds tryouts in Jason Beattie's latest comic. Guess which Steelers RB will be disappointed?

Like Charles Lindbergh crossing the Atlantic, Bill Barnwell becomes the first pilot to fly solo on Scramble For The Ball! This week, Bill deals with unusual scoring systems, MJD vs. Cedric Benson, and how best to draft in a league where everyone else is dumber than you. Plus: Jason Beattie's first cartoon of the new season.

Our measly sum is only, oh, about 6,000 words. Scramble finishes off 2006 with our Free Agent Finale. Plus: Playoff Fantasy Draft results, the Prop Bet tallies, and, as always with Scramble, a goodbye.

You know it. You love it. You've waited all season for it. Now, finally, it's here and it's everything you imagined. This isn't an outtake for Bruce Campbell's Old Spice commercial. Instead, it's Scramble's Fourth Annual Super Bowl Prop Bet Extravaganza, starring Sky Low Low, Zydrunas Ilgauskas, Lady Sovereign, and Goldberg from The Mighty Ducks. Have 22 pieces of paper handy? Let's get started.

When Tom Brady puts his ear to the door, why doesn't he hear the media beating it down for not coming through last Sunday? Should Peyton Manning be serenading the masses from his roof? What is clutch? Bill and Ian debate that in the Dead Week Scramble.

How bad is this year's All-KCW Team? Terrence Kiel didn't make it, and he was arrested for selling cough syrup. Chris Chambers didn't make it, and some of us are convinced he's a robot programmed to drop passes. Andrew Walter's holding a clipboard, and ... well, Andrew Walter's not bad at holding a clipboard. We think. Plus a playoff draft update and Jason Beattie's comic: a Tedy Bruschi joint!

Bill and Alex, still subbing for Ian, have a conversation about the upcoming slate of games. Is Bob Sanders a difference-maker? Is Jeff Garcia's girlfriend still scummy? What's a live-r dog? Does it mean that Rex Grossman officially has a problem if Gil Thorp is concerned about him?

This week's Scramble combines two FO traditions: our fourth Annual FO Staff Playoff Fantasy Draft, and a wrap-up of the second half Loser League contest. Plus, Dennis Green has anger management issues in Jason Beattie's latest cartoon.
