  • Ok..I will admit my humiliation. I actually have 5 teams. I only count 4 because the 5th one I missed the draft for because I was on an airplane unexpectedly. Anyway.. through 2 weeks the only victory I have is on the team I didnt do the drafting for, it was autodrafted. I suck big time this year!! Yeah!

  • I hate you Romo, I hate you Gore, I hate you Eddie Royal, I hate you Lance Moore, and most of all, I hate that people who drafted 2 kickers and 2 defenses are doing better than I am.

  • I got suckered in by the "Eddie Royal is going to be Wes Welker" hype as well...but I cut my losses EARLY..after week 1.

    I got suckered in by the "Wes Welker is going to be Wes Welker" hype.

    He had an okay Week 1, but gimped up his knee and missed the last 2 games. And of course getting injury information out of Belichick is like getting nookie out of a nun so it's a game time decision each week. They amputated his leg below the knee two weeks ago for all I know.

  • Ah. I got that one too! I didnt think he would miss week 2 and still had him starting.. only to have him be a last minute scratch. oops.

  • My drafting went well. After all, my starting line up this week is now:

    Romo, Calvin Johnson, Nate Burleson, Ray Rice, Glen Coffee, Leon Washington, V. Shiancoe, L Tynes and the SF defense. Winners, all.

  • OK, I am putting McFadden on notice this week. If he doesn't get about 120 yards and a TD against easily the worst run defense in the league, I am dropping his sorry ass

  • Boy, I dodged a bullet this week. In one league I'm in I made the brilliant decision to bench David Garrard and start Mark Sanchez. Luckily I still ended up winning by 1 point but it damn near cost me a victory.

  • Romo and McFadden cost me a victory, since I decided to pick up the 49ers defense this week. But between the 2 of those shmucks, I got 2 points, so I ended up losing my game by about 25.

  • I'd like to complain about Chris Johnson doing squat this week, Portis finally going off after I benched him, White deciding to go off on the week I play my brother or what have you, but really I'm gonna complain about my dumbass. Why on God's green earth did I play Leon Washington over Clinton Portis OR MENDENHALL!? I can understand Johnson having a bad game, and realistically I should have checked that before I left saturday night. I'm just more pissed that I retardedly left both Portis and Mendenhall on the bench instead of taking Washington out. I lost by 2...

  • Good Lord, I hate the Patriots. My team scores 137 points, third most in the league. Unfortunately my opponent has Tom Brady and Wes Welker. I lost by 31 points.

    Lance Moore and Calvin Johnson will end up being worth it when it counts--the last few weeks of the season.

    Need to get there first, though. Have been losing games left and right lately because I've been starting players like Sammy Morris and T.J. Houshmandzadeh.

  • I'm 2nd in the league in scoring but I'm in 8th's place I've had 3 weeks where I've scored 100+ points and lost to guys that have the high score for the week.

    Even the guy that was in last place with the least amount of points score out scored me by 20 when I was 125+...

  • Yeah, I cost myself a win this week in my money league. I went out of town and forgot to adjust my roster before leaving Saturday morning. Braylon Edwards remained in my starting lineup while newly acquired Miles Austin sat on my bench, unused.

  • Excuse me as I wallow in self pity here. Damn, Austin and you other jerk holes!!

    Scored 126 pts, but had 142 on the bench. Greg Jennings finally decides to do something, and Jamaal Charles? WTF. So my comp has 126 but Forte and a couple others playing. Waaaa!!! Waaaa!!!


    Sniff ... okay, I am done. Hey, have a good week guys and girls. Everything is just peachy so far.
