Sometimes I just love this game

Postby KnightWhoSaysNi » Tue Nov 16, 2004 7:06 am

So week 10 I had Priest Holmes injured and Reuben Droughs on a bye - at the beginning of the day, I'm not feeling all that great about my chances. After the 1 o'clock games, it was looking bleak with Torry Holt putting up 1 (then getting injured), Fitzgerald putting up nada, and A. Johnson giving me a paltry 2. At the end of the 4 o'clock games, I had a grand total of 9 thanks to a late touchdown run by Onterrio Smith - the score at that time was 49 - 9 and it was all but over for me. My team is the top points-scorer in the league, so having the meat of my lineup put up single digits total was pretty embarrasing (and boy did I hear it from my fellow owners). Then something interesting happened: Vinatieri had a 17 point performance Sunday night, putting me a little closer to contention (26-49). So I went into Monday night down by 23 (in a TD-scoring league) with the following players left:

Donovan McNabb
Jason Whitten
PHI DST.

I won by 30 and am now 9-1

Congrats. With those players left, I probably wouldn't have been too worried.

Nice win.

Yea last night was awesome for me as well. I was down 43 with McNabb, Michael Lewis, and Witten left to play. Crushed my opponent by 29.
