This was the worst team I've ever had. I blame Yahoo.
you drafted it EF... i just got really lucky. i can't believe some of the people i managed to pickup when i did, despite some of the stupid picks i made.
you wanna drop dallas clark so someone else could pick him up?
Not in the slightest.
yea, that's what i thought.
i really, really need mcnabb to have an aweful game tommorow. less than 9 points bad.
Darn you Andre Johnson!!!!
I've had a pretty good week but the darn Ghosteseseseseseses are putting soooo many points.
I need a solid game for McNabb, I did a rough count (excluding defenses) and I think I'll need 20+ points.
Lets hope Reid give McNabb the go ahead to have one of those 60 pass games.
our d's should have been completely even, based on my estimates. i had 1 fumble recovery, 3 sacks, and in the 7-13 point range. 9 points. you'res was in the same range, but had 5 sacks and no turnovers. so 9 points.
and unless i did the math wrong, you only need 9, maybe 11 because i wasn't completely sure on how they did two of the combinations.
and yes... andre johnson had a very, very good week. a career week.
i find myself wishing i'd used tashard choice over chris johnson though, that would have been over 10 points more.
Stupid Eagles. Reid should not have taken McNabb out, they were only up 30-3. Come on, Cle could have comeback!
yea... uh huh... they certainly could have...
good game JC. you pressed me til the very end.
just you and me now grimby. luck.
dangit! if only i'd used choice like i was thinking i should i'd be ahead of you... ah well.
Probably posted this too late, but I my opponent snared Peyton in a one-sided trade (the guy who traded him away is the biggest moron in the league) and as such I am obviously way down in my championship game. Do I start the steady Chad Pennington and hope for a big game against KC, or roll the dice with Aaron Rodgers against Chicago? He has a higher ceiling than Chad, but the Bears could still be playing tough for the division title if Minnesota loses.
i think i'd go with rodgers, he's had more bigger games. (is currently in championship, and has rodgers but started drew brees)
I stuck with Chad, and it looks like Rodgers will have his work cut out for him against a motivated Bears team.
I just know that AP's forgettable day is gonna bite me in the ass. At least Peterson carried me to the title game.
that's part of why i'm glad i didn't get him.
and VERY good match grimby, i thought you'd beaten my team.
I'm not gonna complain about AP, he was a worthwhile 2nd overall pick. Now LT being first overall...
But was I the only one that rode DeAngelo Williams to a championship?
i didn't think about getting him. instead i rode marion barber, michael turner and chris johnson.
you know, i don't think anyone ever asked... but what does the winner of this get, anyways?
I rolled with AP, Maurice Jones-Drew and Reggie Bush, until Bush got hurt and opened up a starting spot for DeAngelo. Pretty fortuitous injury.
yea... i'd say so. quite the RB group, i must admit.
who'd you have at wideout?
I started the season with Larry Fitzgerald (best hands in the league), Roy Williams (ugh) and Donald Driver (not bad considering I paired him with Rodgers a lot) but got lucky picking up Antonio Bryant off the waiver wire a month ago.
And it's a good thing I was stacked at RB, cause my TE (Chris Cooley) gave me CRAP all year year. I was too slow cutting my losses with him and never got to pick up 2nd half guys like Kevin Boss ans Visanthe Shiancoe. One lesson I can take next year is to just not bother drafting a defense, cause just going picking one up playing a poopy team (Oakland, Cleveland, etc) worked fine. I still can't get over drafting Pennington as a joke amongst friends with my last pick. Sure made up for selecting Hasselbeck (*puke*).
oy... that would have been nasty to have hasselbeck.
me, i had andre johnson, fitz and was usually only starting those two with my three RBs. had drew brees and aaron rodgers, and couldn't for the life of me decide which of them to use from week to week. i guessed wrong way, way too many times.
then my tightend, shockey, got hurt. that was displeasing, to put it mildly. didn't have a good tightend for most of the season, until the last week when i got boss off of waivers.
i can't count how many kickers i had this season, and then my defense? the titans, who i didn't draft.
Wait, was Tennessee undrafted or waived? That's a pretty good pickup to roll with all season (along with Pittsburgh and the Giants).
I'm glad my league didn't have kickers. Never liked 'em anyway.
we only got through 13 rounds of a draft, so i picked up tennessee and greenbay as my D's. ran with the titans all year, save for their in which i picked up the bills during a good matchup. only lost once overall, and i just beat the guy who beat me before.
So, what were the final standings?
Grimby - 2
