1-6 and all my losses have been decided by fewer than 5 points.

You won't see any of those guys pictures down there.


Angel of DEATH over here too. I decided that Vick, Price, and Crumpler weren't going to be too good playing against a PISSED OFF Denver defense in Denver so I benched all three.

59 points on the bench :~( :~( :~(

I'm too embarrassed to say who I started in their places but I'm losing 37-92 with C-Mart going tonight.

There's a team in my keeper league that was "touched by an angel" last year. He won the championship, but now his fortunes have reversed even though he has the same core players.

Our defending champion is now 3-4 and this week, he lost by a score of 154 - 27.

I am touched by the angel of death too. I have let up over 1200 points against, more than 200 than anyone else. My scoring is middle of the pack, yet i'm 1-7. This guy in my league is 4-4, simply because every week the team he plays has their worst week. He has 875 points against.

PS-i've also lost these players to injury-Branch, Mcallister, Roy, S.Moss, D. Davis, and have all the viking rbs.

Second in my league in overall points .... 2-5 record and definitely going to lose this week.

My opponent has Holt, Bruce, Garcia, and Tampa D on byes. He starts MeShawn, Morton, Plummer and Buffalo and gets 85 points from them.

Last week I played against Holmes (4 TDs) and lost by 1.5 points. The previous week I played against Culpepper (5 TDs) and lost by 5 points.

I'm feeling like the anti-angel here too. Seems no matter who I'm playing, they have their record best week against me. I'm actually 3rd in points overall, but my record is about to be a sad 4 and 4. How weak is that? :-°

This week I'm against the 2-5 guy who's never scored over 100 points this season - this week? 125 with C. Mart and J. Feidler to go. Go figure.
Thank God for Football Season.

A guy in one of my $$ leagues had an unbelievable Touched bye an Angel week.

He had

T. Green
P. Holmes
T. Gonzalez
M. Harrisson

Those guys alone single handidly humiliated my team this week.


My team has been Cursed bye a Demon all year.

I left the draft with

QB M. Vick / C. Pennington
RB A. Green / J. Lewis
WR H. Ward / T. Holt
TE R. McMichael
K J. Wilkins
And we use IDP
To be my primary starters.

Most of the guys in the league agreed I should be a strong contender to finish 1st.

I'm now 3-5 with little chance of finishing in the money.

The schedule also gave him the Culpepper-RMoss owner who had previously been rolling everyone else. This is the latest in a series of breaks (including twice playing the low-scoring team of the week) that has him at 7-1.


don't know about 'touched by an angel,' but I am prette sure the guy that's 7-0 in my league (pending tonight's game) sold his soul to the devil.
