“Cue up internal monologue”
Irrational Me: “What a miserable week for me….Everyone failed me….”
Rational Me: “Wait, Chris Johnson had 32 pts, Felix was halfway decent, Young GZ got back on track and Stafford in defeat put up more than On 3’s QB like it was nothing?”
Rational Me: “So who failed you again?”
Rational Me: “What do you expect from your team every week, man? These are just human beings….”
This is the kind of week I dread as a GM. The one where the bye week takes your best guys, the season has taken away some of your options due to injury and puts you at a major disadvantage in a matchup. I take no opponent lightly, even if they do have less than stellar matchups, because one can never be too sure if one’s own team will lay a continental breakfast (an egg and a bagel) on any particular week…
So of course this is the week where Chris Johnson go absolutely apeshit on the Buffalo Bills backsides and the rest of my team throws a blanket over their heads and goes the fuck to sleep! Even Chris Johnson left points on the field, missing out on 2 EXTRA touchdowns that would’ve turned his good performance into a legendary one. LEGENDARY!
But then again I am the fool who thought starting Justin Blackmon was a good idea sooo..
Congrats to On 3. Your team did what they were capable of and even though Arian’s extra touchdowns seemed like they were piling on, I still woulda lost.
I’d also like to commend you on your QB play because your boy sunk my boy’s battleship. Rudolph gave me a red nose this week…with all the crying and sobbing and weeping!!!
Let’s breakdown some other small stories from Week 7
Suicide Kings and his 5wide assault defeated X-Men’s 4WR/2TE combo 148-131. ..(even with EasyBreesy hoping for a tie..)
X-Men had a 34 point lead and Nate Burleson going into Monday night’s proceedings between Chicago and Detroit but Suicide had Megatron, B-Marsh, Matt Forte AND the Chicago defense. One can NEVER EVER assume anything in fantasy but I think this was one of those matchups where even I, who has seen it ALL, was like….”Yeah, this is a wrap”. The combination of players involved was just too great to fail. There was no way all four options would come out and lay an egg, especially since he has the BEST players on BOTH teams…What can you do?
A small reference to the SmackTalk between the two GM’s:
X-Men, I understand what you were trying to say when you said “This was a good game despite both of us leaving points on the bench. Good game..” You were directing a compliment your opponent’s way on the quality of the matchup (neither team laid down, both squads scored decent point totals, lack of a blowout, etc..) HOWEVER, your timing?
You can’t say “Good game” to an opponent in the middle of said matchup because it gives off a mental image that YOU feel the matchup was SEWN up like a hemline. Which the matchup clearly wasn’t considering who was left to play o both sides. SO for future bits of commentary, I’d advise holding off on any good game commentary until Tuesday morning.
Curb Your Enthusiasm and his 5 wide brigade defeated LXG’s 3RB squad 146 – 127
I want be more congratulatory to Curb for his victory. I really do. He should be glad I even put one thumbs up photo on here.
Because everytime I look at his team and see AARON RODGERS’S 54 %$%^ING POINTS ON THE BENCH, I FLY INTO A FURIOUS RAGE!!
I JUST wrote something about like that for Week 6’s Breakdown and next thing I see, points are on the pine. I get that you had a strategy and you were seeing your strategy through all the way to the end. I respect you are unwavering in your making of choices and considering you won this matchup, it may not even matter long term! BUT as the season progresses, I’ll just leave a little bookmark here for this matchup considering what MAY come down the road. I’m not going to paint the picture now but when the time comes, I’ll make my private thoughts public on the topic…
Jekyll and Hyde (formerly known as the Dawg Pound Warriors) defeated Absolute Chaos 169 – 124 this week…
Look what we got here! Jekyll played Andy Dalton, Jordy Nelson and Darren McFadden and he wins handily?
We’re halfway through the fantasy football regular season and that so called clarity we THOUGHT we’d have right now is murky as PigPen’s bathwater….We have a clear cut front runner in the Suicide Kings, who has a 2 game lead on his closest competitor AND a decisive lead in points scored. And the rest of the field, from 2 to 10, has 2 games separating them. These next 7 weeks will be a bloodbath (not literally) and I can only imagine what machinations are in the works for roster alterations as we move forward. I can only imagine some of the emails being sent, where one manager is trying to convince another…”Hey, man…X Player is SO GOOD! You should TOTALLY take him!”…while the other manager is like, ” X Player? That dude is GAHHBAGE!!!!!!!!” and vice versa..
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!
