Scramble's saying all the things we know you like, making good conversation. This week, we'll take you to an intimate discussion of fantasy football trading, then to a suggestive Best Bets section. If you've been patient and good, you'll get to see the worst Losers of the week, and yes, you've brought out the animal in Jason Beattie, who has a new comic. This metaphor makes extraordinary rendition look ordinary.

Overs? Unders? Good teams? Bad teams? It's all the same in the NFL. Rob Bironas can go from being a Loser League favorite to kicking 60-yard game-winning field goals, and Bill's betting record isn't happy. Ian revisits the Over/Under bets for this season, and that doesn't make Bill or Ian very happy. Jason Beattie draws a comic, and that doesn't make Matt Millen very happy.

This week's Scramble for the Ball is all about that dirty money. Ian looks back at the AFC predictions, Bill gasps in amazement at the Browns offense, and ... Catholic Match Girl takes a seat on the bench. Plus: Denver fans love Jay Cutler!

Igor Olshansky was not having a ball on Sunday night when Marty Schottenheimer gave him the hairdryer treatment, but Bill says the anger was directed at the wrong person. Ian, meanwhile, directs his anger toward Ricky Proehl, Joe Theismann, and his own bets. Plus, a "classic" Jason Beattie comic!

There was a son once. It lit the whole damn sky. It kept everything alive. Nowhere, though, is there mentioned a second son who tries to light up everything but rises at random intervals and occasionally just doesn't show up at all. This week's Scramble takes a look at the second son, Eli Manning, and why he's the recipient of Football Outsiders criticism. Plus Best Bets, Not So Bad Bets, and Jason Beattie's latest comic!

Bill and Ian can't get over last week's mysterious loogie, and they aren't talking about Mike Myers. The Stock Market returns, as Ian points out some under- and over-valued players to watch for in the coming weeks. Plus, Bill discusses the important issues of the day: Is Trent Green a day-walker? What does Heath Shuler do in his free time? Can Eli Manning fit inside a News of the World?

Guess who wasn't left limp on Monday morning? That's right -- Bill and Ian celebrate last week's 6-0 performance on Best Bets in this week's Scramble. Also, Ian wonders why teams embarass themselves on third and short, Bill pits trolls and skeletons against each other again, and Jason Beattie's latest prescient comic!

This week's Scramble looks at how the NFL world was turned on its head during Week 7. Among the important questions asked: Should Brian Westbrook have not scored? Will Matt Bryant win the FO Halloween Party? Can you be the worst player in Loser League and still hit a game-winning field goal? Plus, Jason Beattie's latest comic, all inside.

Are the Colts trying to lose? Can the Bears go 16-0? Will Tatum Bell finally stay the starter in Denver all year? Will running back prices in auction leagues finally drop after this year's "Big Three" meltdown? And how high can the point spreads against Oakland possibly climb? Plus: Andrew Walter has a posse.
