I can't remember the game or the team. I had way too many teams last year. 12 is too many to keep track of.


The game you are referring to was Monday Night of Week 5, Indianapolis at Tampa Bay. In the first quarter, Mike Doss of the Colts intercepted a pass thrown by Brad Johnson, returned it 16 yards to the Tampa 43, and then fumbled it. Keenan McCardell recovered the fumble and returned it 57 yards for a touchdown.

Yeah, the CNNSI league that I was in scored it the same way, 2 points for the fumble recovery and 6 points for the touchdown for the Broncos defense. I was pretty shocked at how this was scored. I friend of mine in a different league actually lost his head to head matchup because his opponent had Denver's defense and won by a couple of points. Boy was he pissed off. The points should have really gone to McCardell, who buy the way had 2 receiving td's in the game.

Anyways, this was a memorable Monday Night game. The Colts were down 35-14 with 4:00 left in regulation, somehow tied it up to send it to OT and Vanderjagt kicked the game winning field goal with 3:47 left in overtime. Vanderjagt missed the game winning field goal on the previous play, but Simeon Rice was flagged for "leaping" so Vanderjagt got a second chance and he nailed it. Hell of a game.

Favres 4 td 400 yard game after his father died was great for me. I remember posting in here saying i was 35 points behind our regular season leader with only my Qb to play and joked about Favre getting 4tds and 400 yards...and he did, my jaw dropped when I saw the scores.

One of the strangest ones I had was the first game of last season. I play in a yahoo league with decimal scoring and was about 0.5 of a point down with David Akers playing. I assume the eagles ran a fake field goal attempt or something but Akers ended up with 10 passing yards for 1 point which resulted in me winning tha game.

OMG, I felt so bad for that kicker. I forgot who it was though... John Carney? Anyways, is the same kicker still on the team?


It's not like the Saints have any right to kick (sorry for the pun) a guy off the team for not playing up to his potential. Carney is actually one of the most consistent kickers in the league. It is definitely a shame he missed it, though.

I still get PO'd thinking of a game in 2002 where I lost to a kicker (Elam's 5 field goal night). I HATE LOSING TO KICKERS! I had that game wrapped up, too. :-P

The Steelers/Falcons game in '02 where Burress went nuts for 253yds was pretty amazing, especially if he would have caught that hail mary at the end of OT to win the game and go over 300 yds.

I actually won a fantasy game last year because Fanball.com gave me credit for the infamous "McCardell TD" as a defensive TD for the Bucs...63-60. The guy had no business scoring 60 on me in the first place in a TD heavy league. 57 ok, 60 no :-)

this isn't in respect to fantasy scoring, but a memorable scoring play was Joe Jurivicious on Monday Night Football in week one against the Eagles. Remember he tipped the ball up, spun around, dove and caught the ball over a would-be interceptor for the TD.

thanks for the reminder. also the guy I beat that week missed the playoffs by 1 win. He was really pissed about that too.

What do you have against Buffalo?


hockey and lacrosse rivalry, mostly ;-D


Does Buffalo still have a lacrosse team? And with the way the Sabres have sucked the past many seasons, there is no rivalry left.

i lost a game last year by one point (yahoo league). then, 5 days later either the NFL or Yahoo decided that my team had a blocked kick (2 pts) so i ended up winning by one - 5 days later!!
i also was down by 35 pts one week w/ only peyton manning left (sunday night game against the saints). i think he scored 42 points for me to pull out the victory.

the worst losses are when you're down by only a few points and the team w/ your running back/kicker is in the red zone, but decides to kneel the ball because they've already won the game. that happened to me last year (they had the ball on the 2 yard line and ran out the clock - give it to my rb and get me a victory!!)
