Some Insight

Postby NIGHTSHADE » Wed Sep 29, 2004 1:29 am

I had a team in my League back in 1999 who started 0-7!!! He then ran off six straight wins {in which I was first to be beaten in that line} and then he ended up 6-8. Nice comeback! {but he missed playoffs.}

Any idea on what I should do with my team?

Lovable Losers (0-3) 10 team league

QB P. Manning*
RB A. Green* A. Stecker* D. McAllister, K. Jones, M. Bennett, S. Jackson
WR T. Owens* R. Wayne* J. Smith* Q. Morgan, A. Bryant, E. Kennison, D. Givens,
TE L.J. Smith*
K J. Carney*
D Jaguars*

How the hell are you 0-3??? Maybe I'm not used to these ten team leagues. Anything under 12 teams is too easy for me.

Most people say that. But I seriously doubt the majority pay into an 8 team league and come away with the same opinion.

You're more than welcome to pay into mine next season. I'd love to see how you'd fare. }:-)
Only 3 leagues this year. No sense in rooting for everyone in the NFL.

GRAB EM... same goes for Monday night...

Great point and very true... People tend to show up stronger in the nationally televised games... ;-D

last year my team started 0-9, I did not give up and had great joy knocking two friends out of the playoffs and beating the number one team to finish 3-12.

Well, should I give up? :(

don't give up man for all you know you could win the next 3 games i was 2-6 a few years ago and i won 5 in a row to make the playoffs. so anything is possible.

I started off the season 0-5 last year in a 10 team league. After making several roster moves that payed off, I rattled off 8 straight wins, winning my division and didn't lose until the championship game.

Moral of the story: DON'T GIVE UP! Even if you don't finish with a good record, you at least helped make the league competitive. Quitters ruin good leagues.
