I had Matty Ice and Jones, so I'm 56 points happier in the championship.  But in my other league, I had White against me so I'm in the hole for twice his expected numbers.

On the plus side, the guy with White also had Gonzalez.  So 37 expected, 43 earned.  Almost averages out.

Why are these jackasses still "Come On Man" on the replacement refs when the official refs have sucked even more. ESPN must need to give Godell a Christmas present.

The headline should read: "Week 16 starts strong as Atlanta scores home field throughout the playoffs is guaranteed one home game in the playoffs, Megatron broke Jerry Rice's single season receiving yards record, and Matt Stafford sets the NFL record for most passing yards without a TD"

Yep, it's been an offyear for the curse. I went back to my NFL record predictions thread....for fun. I was really close to getting the exact order of all the AFC conferences. If Pitt beats Cincy, my only mistake was KC over Oakland. I did get the wild cards wrong though (picked the wrong 2 second place teams). Here are my random guessses for the lulz:
AFC Playoffs: Denver over Jets; Balt over SD; Balt over Houston; NE over Denver; Balt over Denver
NFC Playoffs: Chicago over San Fran; Philly over ATL; GB over Chicago; Philly over Tampa; GB over Philly
Superbowl: Balt over GB
MVP: Tom Brady
ROTY: Doug Martin
DMVP: A member of Denver's front line
Comeback: Peyton Manning
Worst Team: Jacksonville (who will get the 1 pick and leave town to LA)
Random guesses: Colt McCoy gets two of Clevelands 4 wins; Foles is the Eagles QB from week 12 onward; Megatron is shut down for the year in week 4, Stafford hurt too; Skeleton is a fantasy steal; two bad ref breaks cost the Saints a playoff spot; RG3 bombs; This is Romo/Garrett's last year in Dallas after a 7-9 finish


Wow, just wow on the Foles thing (since that was spot on). If Dallas goes 8-8, I'm still counting that. The other ones, well, it's fun.

Hahaha. Detroit also murdered the careers of Joey Harrington, Boss Bailkey, Mike Williams, Carlos Rogers and Drew Stanton. All would have been Hall of Gamers if they'd been drafted into a quality organization like Cleveland or Jacksonville.

I don't get why lions fans make fun of Stafford, the lions have no blocking, no running games, and no WR threat after Calvin.

Hell I'm sure the jets would trade you straight up for Stafford, they would probably even throw in teebow.

While we've already exceeded your predicted win total, you could technically say you were right about Colt McCoy since he was brought in at the end of their wins over Pittsburgh and Kansas City.

Wanebo: Matt Stafford. NFL quarterback. Hehe.


Stafford is a real good NFL quarterback. Just look at the amazing season he had last year. He would be doing just fine if he had any kind of protection on the line, or a secondary receiver to throw to. Also the secondary is garbage, but that isn't Stafford's fault.
 
2012-12-23 04:00:01 AM
"Stafford is seven attempts away from surpassing the NFL's single-season mark of 691 set by Drew Bledsoe with New England in 1994"

He's going to finish the season with well over 700 attempts. Wow.

It took gal of fame QB Sammy Baugh 5 years as a starter to reach 700 attempts, including a year where he led the NFL in attempts, and 2 where he led the NFL in yardage.

Tron desperately needs to leave Detroit. He doesn't need money, he needs championships, which he will never get in Motown. Seeing how guys like Micheal Irvin and Deon can get commenting jobs for the rest of their lives, why should you ever settle for Franchise player of a shiat team?

Just like with Barry Sanders in his later years, Megatron's talent (and Suh's talent) may be the reason the team isn't very good.

No, a good comparison is Barry Sanders, Calvin Johnson, and Jason Hanson who could be the #1 kicker in the NFL by the time he retires. So the Lions have had the best RB, best WR, best K, and they jury is still out but I think Stafford is going to be a decent QB. All with absolutely nothing to show for it...and as bad as this 4-12 record is going to be, they could actually be WORSE last year because of the inept cap management and poor draft decisions. If Matt Millen was the worst GM in the history of sports, why would you hire his right hand man as the replacement?

I wish the falcons would have signed Reggie ball to play cb for them. He is the only person ever to consistently slow down Calvin Johnson. I still can't believe chan and that fanbase went " all in" with Reggie after that auburn win to start the year. For a great academic institute tech is embarrassingly stupid with their athletic department.

VvonderJesus: You forgot Tony Gonzalez screwing over many fantasy championships.


My #1 TE for most of the year has been Gates. If Gonzalez was screwing me, it would be an upgrade to the pillow-biting Gates has been putting me through.

At WR, though, I've had Megatron, Cruz, and Cobb, plus Garcon's late-season surge. Would have won the regular season if I had played Cam instead of Dalton in week 14. (Yes, our league has our playoffs the last 3 weeks of the NFL season.)

Jerry Rice played in an era when defenders were actually allowed to hit (and after 5 yards instead of 10 today), but he played for a team that didn't suck.

So it's hard to say which record is more impressive. I guess it's a tie.

I should point out that I've already got the stepladder with the half-sawn leg, the luxurious and smooth-as-silk 1 1/4" hemp and Colt's Peacemaker waiting by the recliner for next week, when, for the seventh time since I got hooked on football, the Vikings manage to CHOKE.

/The ONLY FARKING way they are out is if they lose. Tie? Great! Still in! Lose? I begin my days of heavy drinking and chasing loose women.
