Do I influence real NFL players?

Postby Wesley Walker » Thu Sep 29, 2005 12:19 am

It seems like whenever I've started Fred Taylor, he's sucked. Does anyone have his cell phone number? I want to find out if he knows, maybe because his agent tells him, when I start him.

Does anyone else have this problem?

By the way, do you think Chad Pennington is faking his injury because he couldn't take the pressure of playing n my fantasy team?

LOL! That happened to me in baseball this year with Pedro Feliz. Everytime I played him he sucked. Everytime I benched him he'd go off.

Please don't start Fred this week. I need to play him due to a bye week for Thomas Jones and I really need some production.

Thank you for understanding. ;-D
Baseball players are smarter than football players. How often do you see a baseball team penalized for too many men on the field?

Yeah I think I've cursed Peyton. This is my first season with him and he's killed me consistantly. Though the dolts keep winning so no one is screaming for his head except me.

I swore I had the injury curse a couple years ago, and to some extent last year. Last season I had Boldin, McAllister and Chris Brown...bad right there. I can't recall my lineup from the few yers back season, but it was even uglier. Every single starter for the first four picks went down with season ending injuries that year. I know one was Terry Allen on the Skins, and if I'm not mistaken that's when I grabbed Davis and he went down as well. Tagliabue called me and offered to pay me not to play FF anymore, but I held out for more money and he withdrew his offer.
