Welcome, welcome….Week 4 has come and gone and the league is starting to take shape. A lot of points are being scored, since defenses have forgotten how to scheme for playmakers, tackle runners/receivers and play the ball at all. That leads to exciting fantasy football for all of us! No one wants a game where you score 98 points because of all the beastly defense being played. Everybody’s striving for those 200 points games, plain and simple. Collect a crapload of talent, and pray they all go off at one time…
So onto the recap!!!
There’s no biggest blowout award…So let’s all marvel at Aaron Rodgers’ demolition of the Broncos one final time and then we’ll move on, yes?
The Heartbreak City Award (sponsored by Gus Johnson and the University of Gonzaga) goes to…
….Absolute Chaos. This team is mighty familiar with the close losses over the years, in agonizing fashion….Many, many sad Tuesday mornings….but i digress…He was up 140 to 117 before the start of the Sunday night debacle that was a football game between the Jets and Ravens….seriously, what was that? I’d rather watch a 4 hour loop of paint drying than watch that EVER again!….Somehow, that Jet defense got 15 points. So Butter?’s team is within 10.
The paper matchup looked tasty though, considering how bad Indianapolis has looked…..you figured Tampa Bay would run away with this one. I mean it’s Curtis Painter!!!! However, the Colts rose up and played their little horsey hearts out and a last minute waiver add sunk Absolute’s chances of victory.
The member of the Highlight Factory, Pierre Garcon, became a beast for one night. After his first big catch and TD, Butter was up. But Mike Williams (TB) would not be denied, securing catches and yards for the cause, getting Absolute back on top…#phrasing….But then, Pierre takes a bubble screen to the heezy like its a game of NFL Blitz from Midway and the final margin of victory is determined…Amazing. Pierre may NEVER do anything close to that this season, yet he managed to make a mule outta Absolute for the week….
What can you do? Other than this?
And in that vein
The King Condiment Award (brought to you by Aubrey himself) for the best of the best this weekend
QB: Aaron Rodgers – 73pts (Ridiculous – SIT DOWN TOM BRADY!!! I AM LORD OF THE NFL NOW, BABY!!!), Michael Vick (47), Tony Romo (46) and Cam Newton (KILLA!) (41)
WR: Hakeem Nicks (32) and Wes Welker (30)
RB: Matt Forte (32), Beanie Wells (31)
TE: Jimmy Graham (29), Jason Witten (23)
K Ryan Succop (21) – no one had him though so the points were made in vain….
DEF: Baltimore (32) This number is insane. The Jets looked like propeller planes out there…
I’ve decided to suspend the Missed Opportunity award going forward. Pointing out the main reason you lost (not playing one player(s) over another) is like rubbing salt in the wound. The equivalent would be me eating spareribs with 2 tasty sides right in front of you while you tell me you’re fasting…so foul….I’ll only do that if the error was so egregious that I have no choice whatsoever… I don’t want to be that guy.
Ah yes, before I go, my subtle dig @ my previous opponent.
And with that, we reach the end of another blog post, full of wit, mirth and humorous tidbits. Let’s keep the competition fierce, the waiver wire pickups plentiful and the trade offers fair and equal, unless someone out there offers you a beaut that you just can’t pass up!
Until next week, folks!
