Anyone disappointed SA was pulled so early???

I got sixteen points out of him, and I have locked up the win but would have liked to see him really pour it on with a full half left. Oh well, better to keep him healthy I guess. Five game roll for me heading into the playoffs.

QB Warner Favre
RB Alexander, Cadillac Williams, M. Moore, Greg Jones
WR Tory Holt, A. Boldin, T Glenn, Drew Bennet
TE Alge Crumpler
K Tynes
DST Vikings, Titans

Well, when Seattle already has clinched the division you should expect SA to sit a little.

That is what I love about Fantasy Football. The big mouth teams with the great RB's and QB's get to start backups during the playoffs. ;-D

The most disappointed person is... Shaun Alexander. He wants the rushing title big time. I'm hoping LJ keeps pouring it on and the two of them are battling for the title in week 16. I have both of them and that would be sweet. Say, for instance, SA has 210 yds and 3 TDs and LJ has 180 yds and 4 TDs. I wouldn't need to play the rest of my team. :-D
Go Bears!

Heh, that's a lot of wishful thinking regarding LJ challenging SA for the rushing title. He needs to outrush SA by 70 yards a game for the next four games to tie... Not that I don't want that to happen (especially this next week when I face SA's owner in the first round and am starting LJ).

The way LJ has been playing, I wouldn't count him out. ;-D

Maybe I would have been disappointed if he hadn't scored twice already before being benched. They were absolutely drubbing the Eagles, so there wasn't much reason to keep him out there and risk an injury to their most vital weapon right before the playoffs.

Sure, it's always nice to see more points, but I'll give up a TD if it means I'll have SA in my lineup again next week.

The Edge is giving SA a run (pun intended) for his money. He's only 40something yards back. I think Shaun will run (again, pun intended) away with it in the end though. After the stink he made losing the rushing title by one yard, he'll get his yards these last few games to make sure nobody overtakes him.

Anybody else hoping Indy and Seattle can't afford to keep them and they both end up on the free agent market? There's no way they'll be able to pay them franchise tag money again for sure...*dreams of Shaun or Edge in Black and yellow*
