The Fourth Annual Super Bowl Prop Bet Extravaganza!

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?

The 2006 All-Keep Choppin' Wood Team

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!

Scramble for the Ball: Let's Get Ethical

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.

Scramble for the Ball's Parity Spectacular

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.
