I think that I'm going to lose to a dead team

Postby baseball6791 » Sun Oct 23, 2005 7:31 pm

I don't even know how this is possible. Here is my team:

QB Palmer (6 Pts)
WR Burleson (1 pt)
WR Gabriel (5 pts)
WR Evans (6 pts)
RB LT (1 pt)
RB Ahman Green (2 pts)
TE Tony Gonzalez (3 pts)
K Reed (9.5 pts)
DEF Cleveland (6 pts)

His team:

QB Bledsoe (4 pts)
WR Driver (11 pts)
WR DJax (wtf?)
WR McCareins (YTP)
RB Tiki (9 pts)
K Akers (wtf?)
DEF Chicago (11 pts)
D Rossum (YTP)

If McCareins/Rossum score 5 pts on monday night I officially lost to a dead team. Unbelievable. Palmer did nothing; I had no WR to play since S Smith was on bye, Roy Williams injured, Issac Bruce injured, and Rod Smith traded away as part of a package that netted me Ahman (now hurt) and Tony G (still sucking , though improving), which meant I had to start Burleson (did nothing), Gabriel (I don't know how he still got catches since Moss played), and Evans (not bad for a fill-in). Then, my LT-Ahman combo scores me 3 whopping points, thanks guys (yes I know LT is a beast and I shouldn't say anything but its a rant so whatever). I bench Philly D (18 Pts) in favor of Cleveland (6 pts) because I didn't want to play Philly vs. LT and Cleveland had a good matchup. He basically is playing 3 men down, each a crucial position (RB, WR, TE), his QB scored 4 pts and I might lose. Wow !+)

Eh, it happens to the best of us. One of my teams lost to another team by 15 pts. The problem? He "played" two WR's that were hurt and didnt play, and a TE that is on IR. !+)

Thanks for the great sig, Washamur

I'm 2-4 after an 0-4 start and trying desperately to climb back into contention.

I've just lost by one point to the team who played Frisman Jackson (0 points) for Randy Moss.

He also started Randle-El (0 points) and Chris Brown (1 point).

I played a couple dead teams, fortunately I went 3-0-1 today, so I'm alright.

The best part is that tie came from a matchup where I played Westbrook and JLew and he had Portis.

It's alright dude. Last week in my ESPN league I lost to a guy who started a bye player and another guy who was injured and out. L 47-50 :~(

It's the second league I do for fun. Nobody even talks smack or trades in that league, so I don't much care.
It's time to put down the crack-pipe and step away from the keyboard.
