Week 7: Quick and Disappointing

My Eagles lost, but thanks to a miracle 62-yard field goal. Crap like that happens.

What I was actually upset about is going 0-4 in my fantasy leagues this week. Barb, however, continued her tear and went 2-0 again, with one win, sadly, against yours truly.

At least things can't get worse.

Week 6: F*ck Rex Grossman. F*ck Edgerrin James.

So, there I am, 3 points down to the Anchor Bay Assassins, heading into the Monday night Bears-Cards game with Rex Grossman and Edgerrin James ready to go. No way I can lose, right? Grossman's one of the #2 fantasy QB to Donovan McNabb, an Edge, while a disappointment this season, can still rack up 30 yards rushing. Right?

Wrong. By the time I turned the game on, Grossman had a whopping -7 points, having thrown two interceptions and lost two fumbles. Edge had 40 yards, so I was now down 6. Grossman started playing fairly well in the second half, and then he threw his third interception. Minus 2. Arizona, up 23-10, was playing burn-the-clock, just handing it to Edge, so money in the bank, right? Edge fumbles. Minus 2. Grossman gets the ball back. Grossman throws another interception. Minus 2. That's 6 turnovers now on him alone. It suffices to say that I lost. To add insult to injury, I had Brees and his 28 points vs. my Eagles on the bench. Same with Reggie Brown and his 26 while Andre Johnson and his 8 started.

Plus, the Eagles lost after watching Brees burn down the clock for the last 8 minutes of the game (including 3 knees before the winning field goal).

Week 5: Barb's on a roll!

Oh, joy of joys. A nice buttkicking is one thing, but building up someone's hopes and then dashing them against the rocks, that's a thing of beauty. Lito Sheppard returned Drew Bledsoe's interception 102 yards from endzone to endzone to lead the Eagles to a 38-24 victory over O.D. and the Cowboys. A thing of beauty.

Fantasywise, Barb went 2-0 for her second week in a row, while I went 2-2 again.

Week 5
AnyGivenSunday2006: My Opponent Sucks edged Philadelphia Phreak (1-4) 87-84
UIUCAAL: S-Boro Wolverines farnked Philadelphia Phalanx (3-2) 88-81
WFL: The Senators (4-1) censured Jazzynastees 111-78
WFL: Barbie's Bruins (3-2) torched the Benchwarmers 86-29

farleysfootball: Philadelphia Fear (2-3) eroded the WVU Mountaineers 38-32
farleysfootball: Bookworms (2-3) cut off The Third Legge 34-29

I can't believe how bad the Phreak are this year...usually I'm a force in that league. I need Hasselbeck to step up now that he's through his bye.

Also, I predict Eagles over Saints 28-9. Sorry, New Orleans.

Week 4: Go Barb Go!

My Eagles kicked some Packer butt, but they pulled Westy at the last minute, so I went down in flames in the farleysfootball league. Barb, however, took care of business, and went 2-0 this week. I managed a respectable 2-2.

The only thing that really matters this week is that the Eagles beat the Cowboys. Everything else is static.
