Break it to me softly. What are my chances?

Postby robbykrieger » Thu Dec 19, 2002 3:10 pm

The guy I'm playing for the Championship went 12-2 in the regular season (losing in Week 14), and won last week 151-132. I finished up at 8-6, but won 4 of my last 5, including 3 straight to end the regular season. Last week, I won 216-160. His team is stronger fundamentally, but mine has been hotter recently.

The lineups for all the marbles:

MINE

QB: Culpepper/Brooks (still undecided)
RB: Ricky Williams @MIN
RB: Duce Staley @DAL
WR: Jimmy Smith vs. TEN
WR: Laveranues Coles @NE
WR: Plaxico Burress @TB
TE: Tony Gonzalez vs. SD
K: John Carney @CIN
D: Green Bay vs. BUF

HIS

QB: Peyton Manning vs. NYG
RB: LaDainian Tomlinson @KC
RB: Clinton Portis @OAK
WR: Peerless Price @GB
WR: Isaac Bruce @SEA
WR: Eddie Kennison vs. SD
TE: Bubba Franks vs. BUF
K: Mike Hollis @GB
D: San Diego @ KC

Thank God his man Priest Holmes won't be playing this week.

So, what are my chances?

Two powerhouses - looks like a great final.

Well, his team probably has the higher ceiling, but I actually like your chances this week. Some of your matchups look very good. Anything can happen in this matchup, but I think I'd rather have your team...

I'd say start Brooks,better match-up.

If Oakland can hold Portis down you've got a chance,they did a pretty good job of it a couple of weks ago so this is possible.

I'd start Brooks this week too.

I like your chances here, if Staley doesnt lose carries I think you will snatch the win.

Do you have any other option at WR than Jimmy Smith ? he hasnt scored a TD vs the titans since 1999 !!

Good luck

My only other viable option at WR is Jerry Porter. Do you think I should make the switch?

I've pretty much decided to go with Brooks.

I would take Brooks, the Miami D has been very good of late.

Ricky is solid for this week and any week!

Burress, Have you got a better option!

Tomlinson and Portis, Very big guns!

I lost Holmes this week as well. You have a good shot. My RB'S are Portis and Alexander......But I face the Philly D.

Good luck!!!!!
