RANT: My team is full of a bunch of overrated suckers!

Postby Alucard » Mon Oct 02, 2006 11:56 am

Here is my team, which on paper looks sick. But in reality, they got schooled two weeks in a row, not being able to score out of the 80's both weeks. My favorite is F. Taylor and C. Palmer combo with a total of 5 Points.

C. Palmer - No TD passes, 2 fumbles! (4 Points Total!) (2 out of 5 weeks he screwed me)
M. Harrison - Dropped a hard to catch TD (Can you say over rated) (7 Points) - NO TOUCHDOWNS ON THE SEASON!!!
F. Tylor - 17 Yards! (1 Point!) (Second striaght week with almost no show numbers)
L. Coles - Dropped a hard to catch TD (8 Points)
R. Johnson - 1 TD (14 Points)
C. Portis - 1 TD (19 Points)
J. Wilkins - (16 Points, second highest on team!)
Buffalo - Allowed 4th Q useless TD. but still showed (8 Points)

I am tied at 80 points on the day. He still has R. Brown going tonight. This is 2 weeks in a row that my team has severly under performed. Thank good for Wilkins, Portis only two consistant players on my team.

That's rough, but your team maybe isn't as strong as you think. You've got Fragile Fred who is always a risk and who Jones-Drew outscored last week, and you have Laverne as your #2 WR who is hit and miss. Harrison is aging. Rudi and Portis did pretty well, Wilkins got you more points than you have a right to expect from a kicker.

Don't get me wrong you have a good team but not necessarily dominant.

Actually LC was my backup. Burress is my #2, but he screwed me last week.

As for F Taylor, I expected more from him. Expecting him to have a healthy season and be dominant. I may have to start going to A. Green instead. I always get scared Favre going to pass 50+ times so I bench him.

As for Harrison, I figured he would be go to money. But he has yet to score. That surprises me more then anything. I doubt age has anything to do with that. but 8 points per week is not cutting it. Espeically as a #1.

I am more disappointed in Palmer. He has really been incosistant. Since I have Drew as the back up and Rex is still available, I may look for a trade. I wonder if anyone would do Palmer/Taylor for LT. I still have Muhammed and Coles on the bench. So I could use them.

As for the kicker, he is definately over delivering. I love him. I dropped feely for him 2 weeks ago. He has been a top scorer both weeks in a row. You gotta love teams with bad Red Zone %.

If you had LT would you trade him for Palmer & Freddy? Didn't think so. Gonna have to sweeten the deal to get rid of Freddy, he is a definite sell low right now.

Harrison's #'s

Week 1 - 9 catches for 113
week 2 - 7 for 127
week 3 - 6 for 94
week 4 - 7 for 79

WOW, you are right. He is completely overrated. What a chump.

I'll tell you what, though. I would rather have an "overrated" chump who will consistently catch 7-9 balls a game and rack up 80-130 yards than a flash in the pan reciever who scores 1 week, and the following week notches me 33 yards on 2 catches.

Harrison is a stud, and if you really think he is overrated, why don't you trade HIM?

And finally, i am really curious as to the scoring system for your league. How do those numbers get 7 points on average?
