ROUGH RYDERS: Week Six


Our beloved Rough Ryders tallied their highest score of the season in Week Six.

Weeeeeeeeeeee!

Really, with the exception of Patriots' RB Sammy Morris (a late pick-up who was spot-starting for BYE-Weeker Marshawn Lynch), everybody in my starting line-up played to expectations, and in some instances, totally fucking exceeded all expectations.

Ayup, the beloved Rough Ryders tallied 209 fantasy points this weekend, and we still fucking LOST to the dreaded Vocal Removers (managed by Illiterite Wino), who scrapped together a heartbreakingly impressive 218 fantasy points.
WE FUCKING LOST!
But I can't feel too badly about it, cuz there was nothing I could have done to change the outcome...Unlike our loss in Week Three to the Mana Junkies, when I got cocky and started Vince Young instead of Tony Romo, a decision that directly led to that loss...
No, this week there were no managerial mistakes on my part. Plain and simple I got beat by an excellent fantasy football team that likewise met or exceeded all of Wino's expectations...
Look at that roster of his - Brady, Moss and Welker, the three most important and prolific players on the most potent offense in the NFL, and this past Sunday all three of them essentially had their best games of the season...Boom! Boom! Boom!
I had the Stat-Tracker up and running during the game, and you can't imagine the sick feeling that washes over one when Brady hooked up with one of those receivers and seeing 15+ points added to the Vocal Removers' score...Three times that happened. Boom! Boom! Boom!
Meanwhile, I've got Tony Romo and Patrick Crayton on my team, and yes, they hooked up for a TD, and Crayton had about as good a game as Moss did, but fantasy-wise, Romo was only good, not great, this weekend. Yes, he was "The Matador", but he wasn't Tom Brady.
And then there's LT...In last week's recap, I basically begged LT to have his best game of the year this weekend, and damn if he didn't deliver...In fact, if I'm not mistaken, LT had the highest fantasy score of the weekend in the entire NFL, and that includes Adrian "Purple Jesus" Peterson running roughshod all over the Bears defense this weekend...Anyways, LT "The President" delivered HUUUUGE, but unfortunately, it was all for nought...198 rushing yards and 4 touchdowns...All for nothing. Well, not nothing, cuz it kept the beloved Rough Ryders competitive...
Elsewhere, Chad Johnson had a somewhat disappointing game this weekend, going without a TD catch despite 8 catches for 83 yards...Kevin Curtis had a very good game, exceeding my expectations for him...5 catches, 121 yards, and a TD...And Bernard Berrian having a solid game, scoring his first TD of the year...
As I mentioned earlier, Sammy Morris was the only real disappointment this weekend...He ran like an invalid through the first three quarters, and then actually went down with a mysterious "chest injury" in the fourth...It all added up to an absolutely pathetic 14 rushing yards...And to add insult to Patriot injury, he didn't even catch a pass from Brady, who typically makes completions to the towelboys and cheerleaders in most games, you know? Yeah, Morris was a fucking bust, but even if I would have started DeShaun Foster, it wouldn't have mattered. Even if I had started Julius Jones, rather than drop Jones for Morris earlier in the week, it wouldn't have mattereed. Or????? Listen, Adrian Peterson didn't have to run all over the Bears' defense, who gave up a sickening 34 points to the Vikings this weekend. Maybe if the Bears' defense didn't have a fantasy collapse this weekend, our beloved Rough Ryders beat the Vocal Removers...
But anyways, I gotta mention TE Tony Gonzalez, who had a fantastic game this weekend, catching 2 TD passes and racking up 102 yards...His first TD was the 63rd of his career, making him the career TD leader in the NFL at his Tight End position...Congrats to you, Tony, and thanks for playing great so far this season...Keep it up, cuz we all know Larry Johnson ain't getting it done...
Defensively, my DLs, Nick Barnett and Lance Briggs had their typically solid games, but my DBs continue to be a sore spot for me...An injury that really wasn't an injury (Asante Samuel) and a BYE week, Ike Taylor, forced me to the Free Agency pool in search of replacements...So I grabbed the Bears' Adam Archuleta, figuring any sack, interception or fumble recovery would give me double the points...He had a tepid 4 tackles and nothing else...He certainly didn't tackle the Purple Jesus...And then I grabbed the Cowboys' Roy Williams, who obviously didn't cover Moss or Welker very well, and only managed 3 of his horse-collars...Um, I mean, tackles...
So...
I should mention that Illiterite Wino is from Cleveland, and he's got the Browns' two most potent weapons on his fantasy team, WR Braylon Edwards and TE Kellen Winslow...And damn if they didn't come up big this weekend, especially Edwards, who had 3 TD catches...You can bet yr ass that those two guys were a big help to Wino and the Removers this weekend, and considering that Cleveland beat Miami in a shootout, I figure Wino's gotta be walking around with a boner, even now on Tuesday night. Even though he's drunk. Right now. On wine.
Fuck Sammy Morris. Our beloved Rough Ryders are 4-2.
Hotcha! Hank
