I spoke too damn soon, apparently.
Week 1, I say Yahoo’s automated recaps are harder to find.
Week 2, they found some space for on the main league page to put both the matchup breakdowns AND their new-fangled breakdowns of the ENTIRE league!
But you know what? No worries. I’m good.
This’ll be the last mention of the inferior product…
Let’s get back to bidness….what you all clicked that link for…the BREAKDOWNS!
Another high-scoring week on record. I think we all have got to keep expecting big numbers early in the season. These defenses are porous, the passing offenses have the advantage and even with all the injuries, the scores are still high. Toss in the fact that no one is on bye yet and we can expect more of this during Week 3 @ the very least.
There was one close shave this week
between Mash Out and On 3.
On 3 got off to a good start with Jay Cutler and Randall Cobb leading the charge…but had the major misfortune of having both of his flex RBs bow out early in their respective contests. Brandon Meriweather clanged his helmet into Eddie Lacy’s jawbone
and Steven Jackson had a thigh injury, stretching out for a TD on the opening drive….SMH. What a mess.
Mash Out got PPR produce from Julian Edelman, Calvin Johnson and Victor “Penelope” Cruz…but he had a lot of produce on the bench. The Black Unicorn didn’t take too kindly to being benched…
But once again, Sunday Night Football is like the American government for Mash Out….NOTHING BUT BAIL OUTS!
It didn’t come from his one eyebrow having QB…it was Marshawn “Beast Mode” Lynch carrying the mail to the tune of 33 points, scoring 3 touchdowns @ home with ease.
On 3 had 2 horses still in the stable for Monday night being down less than 30…but the Steelers always find a way to put the clamps on the Bengals, statistically speaking that is.
So Mash Out Posse manages to escape with a 10 point W.
Victory was his.
Another victor Sunday night was G.O.M.A.B., who was trailing Absolute Chaos before Sunday night’s festivities and ended up winning by 13 points due to the crushing performance of that Seattle defense…SF is still in the cold tub, trying to get that beating out of their bodies!
Absolute had the rare bad Drew Brees game against a divisional opponent (even with Jimmy Graham beasting out, AGAIN!), and some subpar integers from Reggie Wayne, Rod Streater, the St. Louis defense and Mike Williams.
If Absolute could have the opportunity, he’d love to get his bench mob involved…
…he might’ve had a shot @ victory! Most of his production was on the pine!
Sometimes that’s how it goes. One week you play everybody and match your optimal lineup, then one week you set your roster and your entire bench blows up like a mug…
Van Damage gets bestowed another unfortunate award this week…The Continental Breakfast Award
….due to Brent Celek’s lack of scoring. A zero against The Other Guys was simply no good. Anquan Boldin almost joined him, thanks to Richard Sherman’s tight coverage, but he managed a single reception for 7 yards.
The Other Guys scored a league high 170 points, led by Aaron Rodgers’ decimation of the Redskin secondary, Brandon Marshall’s continued production from last season and the New England defense clamping down on that pedestrian New York Jet offense last Thursday. What a performance!
LXG clipped Man with the Moat’s wings in their matchup and it all fell on Tom Brady’s less than stellar Thursday performance.
Started from the bottom with no real veteran presence @ receiver outside of Julian Edelman….
,,,,and kinda stayed at the bottom after that 1st drive. Drops, weather and poorly run routes, really got to Tom
Maybe next week, Tommy. You get a tasty matchup against Tampa Bay….with Revis Island….
and last but not least…my 3 celebratory postings for my W vs. 18-1….I better choose wisely….I have a limited amount of space and so many .gifs to choose from…
A quick look @ Week 3’s matchups:
Mash Out Posse versus G.O.M.A.B. should be an INTERESTING matchup….the “unofficial” Santonio Holmes bowl….winner of this one goes to 3-0 on the season…a definite feather in the cap….
Give Me Some Room and The Other Guys also look to avoid blemishes on their records and stay perfect on the young season.
LXG and On 3 look to go above .500 while Van Damage, Man With the Moat, Absolute Chaos and 18-1 look to get off the schneid and get a check in the win column.
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!
