    i've slowly worked my way up the ladder thanks to Tom Brady and Randy Moss.

    RB's or a lack thereof have killed me tho.

    LT finally starting to come arond has helped me climb up the board.plus Garcia has been a nice suprise.

    with the season almost half over i think there will be a few more suprise players out there with teams already so far out of it some rookies should see alot of playing time.

    I can imagine you've lost a few hairs over LT's first half with the exception of the last few weeks. Its not like he is alone though, several of the top RB's have been no shows so far this year.


    Ren n' Stimpy, American Football. You know, the one they are playing at Wembley this weekend. :laugh:

    Bone-headed roster move of the year.

    "Let's see, Adrian Peterson only got 70 yards against a decent Philly defense last week, and he's going up against a tough Chargers rush defense."

    "Let's sit him this week."

    Result?

    He sets a new NFL single game rushing record and scores 3 TD's.

    DOH!!!

    Very nice week, Monsieur Divot.

    Nice job grabbing Ryan Grant. Even nicer job not falling for my stinky trade offer...:laugh:

    So - do you keep Cleo? Or do like I did - squeeze that Lemon for a bye week fill in, then dump him back into waiverland.

    I start Steve Smith because Vinny practiced without pain on Friday. Sunday Vinny is declared inactive. Aaaarrrgggh.

    What makes it worse is that I sat Roddy White (who I would definitely have started had I known that David "I can't pass the ball from my left hand to my right hand" Carr was starting.

    And Roddy goes 6/104 with nice 48 yd. TD.

    Double-Aaaarrrgggh!

    Ah, the joys of Fantasy Football, eh Eracer?:laugh:

    At least your still in the hunt. I have been locked in the throws of mediocrity. Things looked so good after draft day with Peyton and Palmer, and now I am fighting just to stay out of the bottom half of the league.

    At least the Pats are keeping the NFL season interesting for me. :D

    my whole downfall is QB.a whole total of 4 points this week between the 2.

    if Brees hadn`t pissed me off with his slow start atleast i might of looked respectable.now Garcia is hurt so i am stuck with a bunch of rookies and Vince Young who produces like a back up fullback.

    oh well live and learn.

    next time in a 2 qb league i will know to pay more attention to that position.

    atleast it is fun.

    At least you didn't pick up Vinny to fill in for the injured McNabb and have them both sit. And WTF did Holmes have to retire the week they played Oakland.

    I somehow missed that point and that it was a PPR league. Oh well I've still climbed from last to 4th in the last 4 weeks. If only I could find someone willing to trade for one of my many WR's I'd be set.

    Ouch! Bet you wish you would have grabbed Feely instead.
    As for Holmes - that was a long shot. I of course passed on Kolby, thinking that KC's running game sucked, and Kolby is a rookie, and of course he goes off...

    I hate to say this, but Favre has been my only real solid player all season. My 2nd QB and both RB's are a cycle every week. I've got 2 solid WR which helps. I'd love to find another QB... here's hoping Clemens lights it up against the Fish on Sunday.

    If it wasn't for my wideouts and the Brees trade I'd still be stuck in last place. Stephen Jackson is finally starting produce so I might be able to make a run at top 3.

    your welcome for Brees.i held out on him as long as i could.he just frustrated the hell out of me and i had a feeling it was going to last so i had to do something.

    i did get a decent WR in Curtis so it wasnt a total loss.he has helped offset my horrible QB play.

    anyone planning on making any late surges? or should I light the victory cigar now?

    i seem to have been one of the few people that predicted that Pats having the offensive season that they have. the Brady-Moss combo was the plan all along and I got it. the rest has just been gravy on top.

    Brady was intended for the 2nd round pick and moss was going to be my 5th round pick...I really thought he would fly under the radar due to the last couple of years in Oakland...

    The Green Bay Packers were very good to GangGreen today.
