Palmer and Alexander = suck

Postby bagobonez » Sun Sep 10, 2006 4:11 pm

I don't think Carson Palmer or Shaun Alexander had as bad a game in all of last year as they did today, and they just happened to both screw me over on the same day. God that is frustrating.

Wish the guys in my league felt this way. I'd trade for either of them in a heartbeat.

Both of them will come back strong.
Go Bears!

Ever hear of "The Madden Curse"?
First the Shock, then the Pistons can the Lions be next?

Well maybe next yr.

PS I didn't lose a paper bag challenge but somehow as a Lion's fan it just feels right.

I'm down by 5 in my matchup against my opponet with Gates for me the only player starting

Yes, it's frustrating. But you started the right guys so you can't be that mad. Each week all of us have players that we just pencil in and don't even think about sitting. Most weeks they do well. Some weeks they don't.

What's more frustrating to me is when you're on the fence between 2 guys and then start the wrong one. To me this is much more frustrating because I was thinking about starting the guy that I sat.

It sucks but you shouldn't be mad that you started Palmer & SA. It was just dumb luck that they both had bad games on the same day. I bet that it won't happen that many more times this year or at all.
