A milestone is upon us. everybody….This post is post number 200! The big 2 zero zero! Bicentennial type numbers…for dat ass!!
It’s like we’ve all just won a cross country race and there’s a riot afterwards…
TIME FOR SOME BREAKDOWNS
I’ll start this breakdown off with the Barbasol Award for 18-1
for the close shave that On 3…Ready Break gave you….You had a lead going into Monday Night but Arian Foster…chipped chipped and chipped away at that lead…and he got you by a whisker.
Matt Stafford came alive late vs Minnesota, Demaryius shook off an injury and Ray Rice and Denarius Moore got you double digits. Hell, the Indy defense got you a 20 spot without breaking a sweat! But the tease that is Ahmad Bradshaw cost you a shot at victory. You had other scoring options on the bench that were as good or better ( Nicks, Reece ) but you went with who you went with and Big Blue let you down …like they’ve let their fans down these past few weeks…(But then again, you did score 164, which isn’t anything to sneeze at)
Who can forget this piece of magic from Ahmad?
Onto Suicide Kings vs LXG….The battle of the record breaking 218’s in the same season…
LXG gets the Mobb Deep Award
because you gave up the goods and got sprayed….figuratively, of course…
The narrative was good enough during the week leading up to the matchup. This confrontation was between the 2 highest scoring teams in this here fantasy league…by a HUGE margin. And for a while is was haymaker after haymaker being landed. Jimmy Graham goes ape….so does Tony Gonzalez. A.J. Green scores a touchdown…so does Calvin Johnson. Peyton throws a TD….Tom Brady throws a TD. CJ Spiller gets points in one of the flex positions….Lance Moore gets points in the flex position….
But it all came down to Monday night and for once, the points never came. Roethlisberger got escorted off the field by 2 Kansas City defensders
and that was that….Byron Leftwich, who I legitimately thought wasn’t in the league, came on in relief and sapped any sort of momentum that the Steelers had on offense. Heath and 60 Minutes had no opportunity to do ANYTHING after Big Ben’s injury and that ended up costing you, LXG, in the long run.
Curb Your Enthusiasm got the Continental Breakfast from Jay Cutler
en route to a bit of a demoralizer versus the X-Men…
X-Men can’t be too thrilled with his performance overall considering he just barely got by but a win is a win. How Eli Manning ended up with a 14 amazes me. The team effort to get the victory was commendable though…..a lot of other players stepped up and filled the void….
Janelle Monae filmed a quick little video for Jekyll and Hyde
reminding him that she’s like track number 7 on Enter the 36 Chambers….
She was led to victory by Drew Brees (what else is new….??) , major contributions from the special teams and Fred Jackson, before he got his bell rung like one of Mike Tyson’s victims in the ring…..Andy Dalton did what he could for you, Jekyll, but the rest of the team didn’t carry enough of their weight, especially Michael Turner…
Sticking with the Mobb Deep theme…
I have to hand out one more Mobb Deep Award to Absolute Chaos…
I get one victory and I don’t know how to act. LOL…..
I’ll say that for once, I was LUCKY that you didn’t play Philip Rivers, considering how SHARP he looked versus a very scrubby Tampa Bay secondary (who still managed to score 20 points and you snapped those mofos up QUICK FAST)….Vick Ballard came up INCHES short of a TD on Thursday night and Big Ben got his yearly injury, albeit one that almost put him on the shelf for good…which affected Emmanuel Sanders and your kicker….WHEW
My man Danny Amendola is back to out-Welker Wes Welker…Matty Ice was cool for most of the game but played like Matt Dillon near the goal line…SMH…and Isaac Redman tried to give away points but finished with a solid 3. THANKS BUD!
Well that puts an end to another week in fantasy football…
FOUR MORE GAMES TO GO PEOPLE! FOUR WEEKS TO MAKE YOUR MARK!
It says something about the competition in this league that a team who has won 8 in a row and is 9-1 on the season with 4 games to go has NOT clinched a playoff spot as of yet. Interesting, interesting and even more interesting…No one is out of it yet and we’re all fighting for our shot to win it all. A proper win streak here might propel a team towards the top and a poorly time losing streak might send a team to the showers…no horseplay, no Sandusky….the trading deadline is over on Friday, waiver claims get dicey and everybody is going to want to hoard talent like Commander Petraeus hoards mistresses….
My bad, Holly Petraeus….my bad…
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!
