Why I have 6 QBs on my roster this week

Sorry I haven’t posted an update for awhile, but it’s mainly because there has been nothing to update. After clinching the best record in the league, I earned a first round playoff bye, which was last week. I was actually given the opportunity to ignore my fantasy team for a couple weeks (which I didn’t). The really weird thing is I was mad about my bye.

Statistically I had the best week of the entire season. Every single person on my team basically had their best game of the season, and it all went to waste. Sure, the result would have been the same (a spot in the semifinals), I just felt cheated by my team picking this week to play out of their minds. It was like studying like hell for a test, and when you get there, the teacher just decides to give you an A. Sure, it doesn’t suck, but don’t you feel just a bit mad knowing you would’ve earned the A anyways? No? Dah well, I’m sure somebody knows what I’m saying. And if you do, you’re probalby a nerd. Everybody loves a free A.

Which brings me to this week’s matchup, the semifinals of the playoffs. I am playing against Shananagans, whose QBs are Jason Campbell (who is out for the year), and Rex Grossman (who lost his job). Yes, he doesn’t have a QB to start. So what do I do? Dump all of my scrubs, and pick up every viable option at QB, naturally. Yesterday I picked up the likes of Todd Collins, Kyle Orton, Josh McCown, Trent Edwards, and Sage Rosenfals. All of which probably have never been on a fantasy roster at any given time, and never will be again. In all honesty, I wouldn’t be surprised if all of these trashballs caught wind of this and called their mothers to let them know.

I figure it is all about winning this week, and if I do, I am assured at least 2nd place, and win $275. Sure I’m a huge jerk and sabatoging this guy’s chances, but it’s his fault he is being a lazy bum and not playing to win. Like the always philisophical Herman Edwards would say: "YOU PLAY……TO WIN………THE GAME."

I will let you know this week how it all pans out. Here are the lineups for the week:


QB: Tom Brady
WR: Terrell Owens
WR: Anthony Gonzalez
WR: Wes Welker
RB: Joseph Addai
RB: Jamal Lewis

TE: Jason Witten
K: Stephen Gostkowski
DEF: Indianapolis


QB: ?
WR: Roy Williams (also out)
WR: Randy Moss
WR: Justin Gage
RB: Brian Westbrook
RB: Earnest Grahm
TE: Cris Cooley
K: David Akers
DEF: Denver

"wah wah!" You are Ed O'Neil's Little Cowboys, and I hope there is a Rick Moranis out there waiting to annihilate your team.

ALSO! Your boy craig accused me of never paying up on my "gentlemen's bets" involving sports...could you please tell him that the kettle is black? In other words,
Ron Dayne finally broke the record in the final game of the 1999 season against Iowa. Dayne ended his career with 6,397 rushing yards, eclipsing the record set the previous year by Ricky Williams of Texas.
At least when i lose i have the guts to say, "Yes i lost and i'm not paying", other than him who denies losing, attempts to verbally change history, and retroactively add stipulations to the bet in order to "justify" his loss or "rationalize" my win. Keep up the good work Bill
