Ehhhhhh…Week 12

Sunday’s games seemed somewhat anticlimactic to me.  Maybe it was because there were three very good games on Thursday.  Or maybe it was simply that my Cowboys weren’t playing.  Regardless, there wasn’t any particular game that was of interest to me. 

First, I was really sorry to see Matt Leinart get knocked out of the game with what appears to be a season ending injury.  I still remember how the former Heisman winner dropped to the 10th spot in the draft, when “experts” were saying that he could go #1.  Leinart seemed to be in the right situation:  a great offense with a top notch O line and superior running game, and one of the best receivers in the game to throw to throw to, since Andre Johnson was back from injury.  It’s too bad to see his season end.  Also, it’s too bad for the Texans, who probably were going to win the division and had a real shot to go far in the playoffs.  Ah well, it’s always next year! 

I also have to talk about Stevie “Why so serious” Johnson.  Ok, is this guy stupid?  I’m really curious to know.  First, I have to say, I love end zone dances and celebrations.  As a matter of fact, I loved Johnson’s Why So Serious t-shirt.  But to reenact the Plaxico Burress self inflicted gunshot wound was embarrassing and tasteless.  (Do I sound like Joe Buck?)  It cost the Bills 15 yards on the ensuing kickoff, giving the Jets a shortened field resulting in another Mark Sanchez TD.  I do have to give a shout out for the classy way Plax responded, “I’ve seen worse, and I’ve heard worse.  Doesn’t bother me.”   

Congrats to Tim Tebow on another win, this time in an exciting OT victory.  I’m not a Tebow hater or a Tebow apologist, but I do think that the guy is a winner.  However, I really want to highlight the play of Willis McGahee, and the Denver defense.  McGahee, is coming off a hamstring injury, and he trotted through the Charger defense for 117 yards at 5.1 yards a clip.  Actually for the season, he is averaging 4.8 yards a carry.  To me, he has shown that he is more than just a change a pace back only viable for short yardage work.  If he can stay healthy, he’s a top 15 RB.  He has just as much to do with the success of Broncos as Tebow does.  The main reason, in my opinion for the success of Denver, is the defense.  Especially the play of rookie Vonn Miller, who is leading the team with 11 sacks, on pace to finish the season with 16.  In the last three games, the defense has given up 10, 13, and 13 points, respectively.  Again, I’m not taking anything away from Tebow.  But, he does have a great supporting cast to help him.  Just my observation.

LADIES VS FELLAS WEEK 4

Let me pull this quote from last week:  “I’m really looking forward to my matchup against my partner in this whole thing, Play Action Princess (Baby, I will try to take it easy on you).”  That Ladies was from your league commish.  I love making people eat their words!  Well girls, what can I say?  We crushed the guys!  Y’all did great!  We were 1 point away from bringing out the brooms and sweeping the guys off of Stattracker!  Read ’em and weep boys!

LADIES VS FELLAS WEEK 3!

I’m very sad to say that this league is starting to be She Said Fantasy Football League. The Men lost another head to head match up and our record is now 1-2 against the Ladies (Shout out to Domin8 Trix). We are being outscored by the Women 1571 to 1505 and we are tied in overall win loss record at 6-6. We have TWO teams in the He Said Division that have yet to win a game, but I won’t mention them by name but they know who they are. I’ve been singing this same song for THREE WEEKS now: WE gotta do better, the Ladies are killing us! Continue reading
