Another weekend of miserable football action. Both in college and of the professional variety. Lots of blowouts this week and not a lot of parity. The same can be said of the Spawn FF this week as their was only one close game. On to the action...
Starting off with our Game Of The Week SleepingwiththeEnemy managed to knock off the league's #1 Smooth Operators during the Monday night game. Although Mcnabb's numbers weren't spectacular he did enough combined with kicker David Akers to propel Sleeping over Smooth. Smooth played a good game but came up short in a few key categories and that made all the difference.
In other news He Hate Me went on to bludgeon the Bursley Busses by almost 40 points. Big games from Chad "Don't Call Me Johnson" 85 and the Pittsburgh Steel Curtain D led the way to this performance. Bursley's players played for winning teams but they were not able to compile the stats needed to elevate the team.
Zoltan's Heroes was able to hold off 9 Finger Freaks in a somewhat close game. Phillip Rivers is starting to climb back to FF greatness while Cedric Benson obviously couldn't get out of Chicago fast enough. 9 Finger had an overall good performance but it just wasn't quite enough to get them the victory. Braylon Edwards continues his career path of NFL bust with another poor injury riddled performance.
In this week's final game Bigasshammm was trounced by league juggernaut Defenstrators. Bigasshammm had one of their better weeks but it was nothing compared to the 150+ point performance of the Defenstration. With 5 out of 9 player positions scoring above 20 points you will be hard to beat every week. The biggest surprise was the fact that Drew Brees was not the high scorer, that honor went to the Eagles Desean Jackson. Bigasshammm continues to struggle to find a consistent running game but seems to have shored up a solid receiving corps. We'll see where FA takes them in the next week or two.
With the end of week 7 that takes the FF league to it's halfway point. Playoffs begin week 15 of the NFL season and the top 6 teams will play for the crown. Current standings are as such. Defenestrators sit atop the throne at 6-1 with a whopping 790 points. Smooth Operators is alone in 2nd place at 5-2 with 753 points. A 2 way tied for third has SleepingwiththeEnemy and He Hate Me at 4-3. Zoltan's Heroes is alone in the 5th position with a 3-4 record. Finally it is a 3 dog race for the final playoff spot with 9 Finger Freaks, Bigasshammm, and Bursley Busses clawing it out at the bottom each at 2-5 on the year. Trade deadline is Nov 20th not that we've seen much action in that area but the information is out there.
