SoSG Fantasy Football Update, Week 8 (And Week 9 Smack Thread)

I am writing this from a hole in the ground. Where there is no light. And I am still drunk. And I don't feel much like posting just yet.

(Actually, I had a really tough week at work too--but hey, if there was a week to hibernate, I figured this was probably it.)

Mr. LA SF is also underneath a table somewhere, so let me give a quick recap of last week's efforts:

Spanky 72, Neeebs' Mom 54
Mr. Customer 129, Meanie Breanie 103
Steve Dittmore 66, Mr. LA SF 53
Dusty Baker 122, Karina 68
Paul 82, Nic J 44

Today gives us an extra hour of smacktalking. Fire up, people!

UPDATE 9:16a: Now with more Mr LA SF content!

Baseball is over, and there's not much left to talk about. So let's talk about football! Because why not!

Prof. Dittmore 66 (6-2) - MLASF 53 (2-6): The Professor takes advantage of my B-team (I had five players on byes) thanks to a late rally by Andre Johnson's 16 points in Monday Night Football. I had 14 points from both Ryan Fitzpatrick and Maurice Jones-Drew go for naught.

Spanky 72 (4-4) - Jason 54 (2-6): The Spankster moves back to .500 thanks to 22 points from rookie LaGarrette Blount and 15 points from the Rams' defense. Chris Johnson hauled 13 points for Jason, but no other player could reach double figures.

Mr. Customer 129 (4-4) - Meaniebreanie 103 (3-5): Mr. C gets his revenge from his juggernaut opening week loss thanks to a staggering seven double-digit showings. BenJarvus Green-Ellis led the way with 24 points, and Antonio Gates followed with 18. MB saw Brandon Lloyd snag 22 points and Terrell Owens add 18 to the mix, but it wasn't enough.

Dusty Baker 122 (7-1) - Karina 68 (5-3):  In a battle of the top seeds, Dusty cam out on top.  Arian Foster took 22 points in for DB, and Peyton Manning added 18. Jamaal Charles gave Karina 23 points, and Adrian Peterson took 20, but no other player had double-digits.

Paul 82 (5-3) - NicJ 54 (2-6):  Nic can't catch a break, suffering his sixth straight loss, while Paul continues his drive for first in the western division. A monster 28 point outburst from Calvin Johnson propelled the new father, while Philip Rivers added 18 points. Tom Brady's 13 points and Percy Harvin's 12 were the crux of Nic's offense.

Week 9 gets Jason vs. MLASF, Spanky vs. Mr C, Paul vs. MB, Nic vs. Dusty, and Karina vs. Ditty. Hopefully, we can answer that immortal question, "If there's no baseball being played, does SoSG make a sound?"

Only with daylight savings am I awake before football has started.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I just sent the wrapup now!

Steve Sax said...

No worries Mr LA SF, I know the USC game ran late. Updated the post.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Thanks, Sax!

Spanky said...

Gorgeous morning here in desert town. Perfect day to get my bootay kicked. Should be excruciating. Bring it Mr.C.

*falls to the ground in dramatic fashion for no apparent reason

Mr. Customer said...

*SMACK*

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

One of those weird days where there are two afternoon games.

Mr. Customer said...

Walkin' with my L'pool-loving head held high. Nice to see a well-contested match when I was expecting a blowout.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

The Chargers are not good at football.

Spanky said...

Brees is already killing me.

NicJ said...

6 quick points for DB.

It's gonna be a long day.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Oh this ain't going so well.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I LOVE YOU PEYTON HILLIS

Mr. Customer said...

Digging a hole early.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Stupid Peyton Hillis.

Spanky said...

Whole lot of nothing going on.

Spanky said...

I smell a safety. come on Viking D

Mr. Customer said...

Whoo-hoo. On the board…

Mr. Customer said...

I'm really missing gates right about now.

Spanky said...

Your killing me Viking D/ST

karina said...

I love you so much, Adrian Peterson

karina said...

ah, epale everyone!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I think I just lost Roddy White.

Mr. Customer said...

Hey, K!

karina said...

@Czar why couldn't you lose Roddy White last week?

(cries)

Spanky said...

I need an interception run back for a TD because I am not getting anything from Brees and Co.

Mr. Customer said...

Nice kick...

NicJ said...

It took almost a whole half but yet another player of mine goes out with an injury.

Spanky said...

yay Brees

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

If Calvin Johnson didn't get a TD, Arian Foster should not get a TD.

NicJ said...

Arian Foster isnt fair.

NicJ said...

alright who has the best shot at beating DB in the playoffs?

you can have any player of mine you want. I dont know why you would want them in the first place but still.

Spanky said...

I HATE YOU VIKING D!

karina said...

Sanchez: TOUCHDOWN!

yay!

Mr. Customer said...

I'm going to want something more from the boys in the second half.

NicJ said...

THANK YOU FOOTBALL GOD(S)!!!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

The city of Houston can boo, but that's the rules are. Calvin Johnson gets jobbed, so does Arian Foster.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

^that's what the rules are

Mr. Customer said...

Shoulda started Mike Williams.

Spanky said...

What's with this TD controversy you are going on about Mr.LA?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

How does Patrick Crayton only have two receptions?

MR. F said...

How was Arian Foster's thing not a TD?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Foster didn't maintain control of the ball when he hit the ground, so the TD was taken away. The same thing happened to Calvin Johnson in the first week.

NicJ said...

ball popped out when he hit the floor. Have to have complete control on a TD catch.

MeanieBreanie said...

Epale Y'all

Texas teams suck this year including mine.

(Cries)

Spanky said...

I HATE YOU FLACCO!

Mr. Customer said...

Chester Taylor vultures a TD from Forte. Le sigh.

Spanky said...

I was counting on that Mr.C.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Yay, Patrick Crayton!

karina said...

Boys and girls,I'll have to leave you.I'm going to the FIRST PLACE AGUILAS game.

I hadn't said that in a LONG LONG time.

a la carga!

good luck with fantasy (not you, Professor!)

Spanky said...

Throw it to Moore!

Spanky said...

Later Karina!

MeanieBreanie said...

Neil Rackers my kicker has more points than my receiver Steve Johnson. Johnson went limp :(

@Karina
Have a great time!

Spanky said...

:(

Spanky said...

OHHH! NicJ took the lead.

MeanieBreanie said...

Johnson showing some signs of life.

@Spank
It ain't over till it's over.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Nic is still down by 11.

Spanky said...

My bye week replacement kicker just missed an extra point. AN EXTRA POINT!

NicJ said...

im up by three.

DB still has manning and run DMC so it doesnt really matter.

NicJ said...

that last minute randy McMichael sub for me really paid off.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

The fantasycast isn't updating.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I love Peyton Hillis.

MeanieBreanie said...

Mr. LASC
I had that issue earlier. Once I closed out and logged back in, it was fine. It's currently updating as I type this.

NicJ said...

i just need Brady to throw a 75 yard TD pass to himself.

Spanky said...

I can use an 80 yard TD bomb from Brees to Moore right now. But he'll probably just throw a pick.

NicJ said...

i love how ryan matthews always goes down with an injury right after he fumbles.

Spanky said...

My Team Sucks!

Spanky said...

Mr.La beat me to the Saints D on the waiver wire. They have 20 points. fuck

NicJ said...

did wes welker just kick a PAT?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Whoever dropped the Saints D must be feeling very foolish right now.

NicJ said...

the saints got me negative points just two weeks ago.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Ah the fickle finger of fate.

NicJ said...

Meh, the saints blow this year anyways.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Did Dusty get a point from Welker's PAT?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Hey, shut up. The Saints are still good.

NicJ said...

the saints are awful.

and yes i think he did.

Spanky said...

Come on Tampa. Ride my horse DAMMIT

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Saints will be tied for first after today.

NicJ said...

That says more about the NFC being terrible than the Saints being good.

Mr. Customer said...

Well, at least that's a score.

MR. F said...

Damnit. Gostkowski is injured?

Spanky said...

The Patriots must have players on bye.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Once the Saints can reestablish the run game they'll be back on top.

NicJ said...

at least brady gets one more crack at the endzone.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

You could hear Schaub screaming at the ref.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

FUCK YEAH PEYTON HILLIS

Paul said...

@wingoz Shay-ee ah-JEER-ah-two-two. You'll own it... And get used to it. He can play. Was shocked he was UDFA. Had 3rd rd grade on him.

NicJ said...

Schaub should have taken some of Cushing's roids.

NicJ said...

NVM brady is out of the game.

Paul said...

Good thing Denver got rid of Hillis. Tebow will save them.

Spanky said...

I am set up for a geyser of points at this moment. Come on fuckers. Give me a break already.

Spanky said...

FFFFFUUUUUCCCCKKKKKK!

Mr. Customer said...

Whew. Betts gets the carry.

Thanks fer nothing BenJarvus.

NicJ said...

well im winning after the early games. I will consider that progress.

Spanky said...

Blount could not take it in from 2 yards out. TWICE!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

WOOHOO SHIANCOE

Mr. Customer said...

I'm hoping interception machine mode is disabled for Eli this week.

NicJ said...

damn Mark Sanchez steals a goalline TD from LDT

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Yay I get to hear Gus Johnson now.

MeanieBreanie said...

In its usual manner my team chose to roll over and die at precisely the same time that Paul's chose to get some major mojo.

Spanky said...

I would sacrifice all points from Brandon Jacobs in return of a horrible game from Eli.

NicJ said...

MB, you still have 5 players to play.

paul has 1

Spanky said...

Viking D coming up phat now.

MeanieBreanie said...

@Nic
True but where we had matchups today his have managed to blow mine out. If my players stay on present course he could definitely pull it out.

MeanieBreanie said...

Spanky said...

You got the big guns still Meanie.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

If this game gets any more exciting, Gus Johnson's head will pop off.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Yeah, MB. You still have some heavy hitters.

MeanieBreanie said...

Time will tell ;~)

MeanieBreanie said...

The Saints went marching in. I haven't paid close attention. Can someone tell me what happened to Shockey?

Spanky said...

I feel bad for Neeebs' mom. HaHa

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

D-Jax! Way to return!

Spanky said...

@ Meanie

He caught a TD and got hurt on the play.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I don't get that Budweiser commercial. It shows Wrigley getting all preped for a game, but then it shows jets flying over Busch Stadium.

MeanieBreanie said...

Thx McSpank. I hope he's not hurt too badly.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Damn I thought Holmes could have gone all the way.

NicJ said...

Peyton throws a pick which leads to a FG for my kicker.

a 5 point swing for my team!!

MeanieBreanie said...

We have some major upsets in the making:

NIC OVER DUSTY
Spank over Mr. C

@Mr. LASC, what did Neeeb's mom ever do to you? Talk about a major spanking!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I can't help it if he only has 19 points.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Now you guys know why I ditched Gostkowski and the Pats' D.

MeanieBreanie said...

LASC....I was just sayin ;~))

Did you all just see the commercial with Joe Suck? It looks like he colored his hair.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Going from Harvard to Oakland is like going from Bel Air to Compton.

Dusty Baker said...

Still a lot of players to play, still. Day is early, MB.

MeanieBreanie said...

Epale DB
You're right on all fronts. I should know by now that anything goes in FF. I see the gap between you and Nic has narrowed. Arian Foster has been a goldmine. Your matchup is definitely an interesting one to watch.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

DeSean must have some severe memory loss. He thinks he's still playing in last week's game.

Mr. Customer said...

Double-dip TD!

Mr. Customer said...

I'M ALIVE!

Spanky said...

McSpank. WTF was I thinking. HaHa. I think thats the night I quit Steel Reserve. Or was it the next night. This weekend has been a blur.


Damn Mr.C has made a comeback.

(cries)

MeanieBreanie said...

Mr. C and McSpank going mano a mano.

Mr. Customer said...

Freak play.

Mr. Customer said...

Karina's laying the lumber on the Professor.

MeanieBreanie said...

How does one get a 1/2 point?

Spanky said...

Scoreboard says I have 43.5 points. Must be on crack.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Spanky pulled a ditty. Got half a point on his D. ESPN will spot the other half tomorrow probably.

Spanky said...

Not me on crack. The scoreboard is on crack.

Spanky said...

I hope the Giants run the ball now that it is a blowout.

Mr. Customer said...

Yeah, half a point in a game that's over, even.

Spanky said...

Not to call attention to myself but ESPN is fucking with my emotions right now. Make up your fucking mind on how many points I have already. Shit.

Mr. Customer said...

It's replaying the Vikes - Cards in fast forward.

Spanky said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Mr. Customer said...

The projection still thinks I'm going to get to 100 somehow. That's a bit optimistic.

NicJ said...

the projections are always wrong.

Well they are for me at least.

MeanieBreanie said...

I'm with Nic. The projections have never been accurate.

NicJ said...

i am loving Akers today.

Spanky said...

Gotta go but I have my Strat ready to play the blues in case of being massacred upon my return.

MeanieBreanie said...

Poor Austin Collie. He's being placed on a stretcher. Hope he will be ok.

Mr. Customer said...

Phiwwy's D is the biggest offensive weapon the Colts have going.

MeanieBreanie said...

Indy cashing in on all the penalties.

NicJ said...

all tied up at the half.

DB is sweating.

NicJ said...

whew, just got a break in both games.

NicJ said...

OT in the raiders game will kill me.

Spanky said...

What happened to Austin Collie? I am getting pummeled. Looks like it's Blues for Spanky night. Bye Bye winning streak.

MeanieBreanie said...

@Spank
Collie got clocked and suffered a concussion.

Spanky said...

OMG! I am going to say something right now that will get me ridiculed(as usual) but times is desperate.

LETS GO COWBOYS! Score MegaPoints!

(cries)!

!!

MeanieBreanie said...

Spank
Those words are music to my ears ;~))

GO COWBOYS!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Paul has some depth at QB. Rivers and Vick. He should probably trade one, preferably to me.

MeanieBreanie said...

Vick might have talent but he is despicable. Leave it to The Eagles to employ him. My feelings toward The Eagles are about the same between LA and SF.

hateHateHATE!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Says the person whose starting quarterback has twice been accused of sexual assault.

Spanky said...

Do you love me now Meanie? HaHa

@ Mr.LA @ 5:24

Exactly

MeanieBreanie said...

LASC
I agree that where there's smoke there's fire. I certainly don't think Big Ben is innocent. As with Vick he does have talent.

MeanieBreanie said...

They are both despicable.

Spanky said...

That is too bad about Collie. I had just re-signed him. Now I have to get rid of him like they do for reals.

MeanieBreanie said...

OK Cowboys keep it clean. We don't need a slew of penalties tonight.

NicJ said...

Go Dallas Dez Bryants!!!!

Spanky said...

Score some TD's DAMMIT

NicJ said...

if we are going to be pointing out the criminal record of NFL players i think we are in for a long night.

MeanieBreanie said...

I love you Witten. Please rack up some points.

Spanky said...

I knew i should have picked up Kitna.

MeanieBreanie said...

Spank
After that play aren't you glad you don't have him?

Mr. Customer said...

W00t!

Spanky said...

NNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

Spanky said...

Come on Rodgers. Throw it to Jones in the end zone.

NicJ said...

so close to a win but the cowboys are freakin awful.

Spanky said...

Throw the ball away DUMMY.

Spanky said...

Man, I don't know how many times I came one yard short of scoring TD's today.

MeanieBreanie said...

I didn't think the Cowboys could get any worse. They continue to amaze me with their downward spiral.

MeanieBreanie said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
NicJ said...

just five points away

NicJ said...

well the FF watch is about to lose my attention to the laker game.

NicJ said...

all Dez needs is one garbage time TD

Spanky said...

The Cowboys need a no-nonsense type coach. And for Jerry Jones to worry only about getting face lifts not controlling the team.

Spanky said...

^not about

NicJ said...

garbage time might be the whole second half

MeanieBreanie said...

WADE MUST GO!

NicJ said...

this is getting ugly.

and funny

MeanieBreanie said...

It's nauseating. It sort of reminds me of a few Dodgers games this past season.

Mr. Customer said...

Huh. How did I not get 6 points out of that "fumble" recovery.

Spanky said...

I need a lifeline. Come on Kitna

Spanky said...

Fuck Yeah! HaHa

NicJ said...

allllllllllll tied up

NicJ said...

BEAT DB

BEAT DB

BEAT DB

MeanieBreanie said...

Congrats Nic!

Mr. Customer said...

There's the garbage TD.

NicJ said...

I feel so petty and small just concentrating on beating a specific team rather than winning it all.

Now i know how the Pods/Gints feel.

NicJ said...

Garbage never tasted so sweet.

Spanky said...

Had to be the avatar. I guess I am not rogue against Dusty.

MeanieBreanie said...

This was sent the other day by a Dallas friend:

In the case of a tornado in the DFW area, please head directly to Cowboy Stadium. Chances of a touchdown there are unlikely!

NicJ said...

Down goes Baker! Down goes Baker!


(said in Howard Cosell voice)

karina said...

just came back,before I get into fantasy football, I've got to say:

it was a win! 7 in a row, 6 at home, which included a doubleheader!Aguilaaaaaaas, a la cargaaaaaaaaaaa!

before today, collective era this week was 0.42.Yes, I'm aware that's not a valid statistic ;)

karina said...

200!
