I play in 3 leagues. Last year I was in all 3 championship games. One league I dominated with the following lineup:
QB Bledsoe-got shutout by Packers D
RB Priest Holmes-out with hip injury, started Fred Taylor instead
RB Marshall Faulk-injured but played scoring little
RB Clinton Portis-played well
WR Terrell Owens-played limited due to groin injury
WR Koren Robinson
How I ended up with all those studs on draft day is beyond me, but I didn't lose a single regular season game, and lost the championship game by 1 point. At 1 point per 10 yds, Holmes would have put me over the top easily.
League 2, I have Amani Toomer going ape aginst the Colts, but lose with Bledsoe getting shutout and my opponent has Green Bay Defense who pitches a shutout and scores 2 TD's (10pts for the shutout plus the TD's) and I lose by 1 point. Thanks Drew.
League 3: Keyshawn Johnson scores a garbage TD in the final minute against the Steelers and I lose by 1 point. The Steelers had their second string in. TD came with like 12 seconds left.
And finally last year, Sebastian Janikowski misses 3 FG's in a league where we lost 1 pt. per missed FG which means a 4 pt swing...instead of getting 3, I lose 1pt, and I lose the championship game by 2 pts. One made FG and I win.
I have the ultimate heartbreaking/backbreaking debolacle of ALL TIME...luckily, this was my opponent, not me.
In week 1 of the regular season, thru sunday night, my opponent had me outscored by 1 pt, and had Jerome Bettis left to play. Come Monday night, Bettis didn't do jack squat. He gets the ball on one possession and FUMBLES IT. So I'm thinking, holy crap I have the lead now! (our league negates 2 pts for TO's!)...Bettis then left the game I believe to injury and I ended up winning by 1 pt!!!
It was the sweetest fan football moment ever for me
I'm down 63 points in week 4 on Monday with only the MNF game left. MY opponent has no one left to play and i figure i've already lost. I have Favre, Longwell, Driver, Franks and Nate Wayne. The Pack destroy the Bears and all of those player play well, I end up winning by one point.
