SoSG Fantasy Football Week 11 Update (And Week 12 SmackThread)

Yikes, the Thanksgiving holiday is at its end and I've been so amped up on college football that I've forgotten to solicit the Week 11 wrapup! Here's the base statistics:

Week 11 Update:
Dusty Baker 118, Professor Dittmore 111 (what a game!)
Mr. LA Sports Fan 133, Nic J 77
Meanie Breanie 121, karina 78
Mr. Customer 95, Jason 83
Spanky 92, Paul 64

Standings:
East: Dusty Baker 9-2, Mr. Customer 6-5, Mr. LA Sports Fan 5-6, Jason and Nic J tied at 3-8
West: Prof. Dittmore 8-3, Paul 6-5, Meanie Breanie and karina and Spanky all tied at 5-6

Work off that Thanksgiving stuffing and smacktalk away!

Update 7:45a from Mr LA SF (thank you!):

Two weeks are left in the Sons of Steve Garvey Fantasy Football League, and ESPN has released an early bracket for the playoffs if they took place now. #1 seed Dusty would play #4 seed Paul, and #2 seed Prof. Dittmore would play Mr. Customer. The rest would play in the "consolation ladder." More on the state of the playoffs will be announced at the end of the FF season. Now, Week 11's action:  

MLASF 133 (5-6) - NicJ 77(3-8): I get my third straight blowout victory, and fourth in five days, while Nic gets his eighth loss in nine games. Fred Jackson led the way with 24 points, while Maurice Jones-Drew and the Baltimore defense each took 23 points. Peyton Hillis followed with 19. The 18 points from Ray Rice were Nic's best from a player, while Tom Brady placed second with 15.  

Dusty Baker 118 (9-2) - Prof. Dittmore 111 (8-3): The battle of the juggernauts ended on a fantasy nail biter as Dusty entered MNF down by 14. However, Mike Tolbert more than made up for the deficit thanks to 21 points, and DB prevailed. Aaron Rodgers' 30 points went for naught for the Professor, as did 19 points from LeSean McCoy.  Dusty's victory was paved by 23 point outbursts from Marques Colston and Arian Foster.  

121 (5-6) - Karina 78 (5-6): In a rematch of the Battle of the Female SoSG Contingency, Meanie exacted her revenge for her early season loss to Karina. Ben Roethlisberger hauled in 34 points for MB, and the Steeler defense added 19. Karina lost despite 24 points from Mark Sanchez and 14 from Braylon Edwards  

Mr. Customer 95 (6-5) - Jason 83 (3-8): Mr. C moves above .500 with his win, while Jason suffers a tough loss, keeping him tied with Nic for the cellar. 16 points courtesy of Reggie Wayne took the tops for Customer, and BenJarvus Green-Ellis added 15. Dwayne Bowe had 22 points for Jason, and Cedric Benson added 18 in a losing effort.  

Spanky 92 (5-6) - Paul 64 (6-5): Spanky pulls the upset and stays in the race for a playoff birth after his victory, while Paul falls into a tie with Mr. C and on the brink of losing his playoff birth. Drew Brees helped the Spankster with a 27 point outing; Mike Goodson added 15. Michael Vick pulled 19 points for Paul, but Calvin Johnson was his only other man in double-digits with 10.  

Week 12 pits MLASF against Mr. C, Nic against Karina, Dusty against Jason, Paul against P. Ditty, and Spanky against MB. With two weeks left, the two wild card spots are up for grabs. Can I beat Mr. C and force a tie with just a week left? Will Paul fall to five-hundred? Will Meanie leave Spanky in the dust, or vice versa? Does Jason pull off the stunning upset?  

Well? I'm still waiting for your answers. Ah nuts to you, I'm gonna go teepee Ronald Johnson's dorm.

Steve Sax said...

All the early NFL games make this week kinda two-stage.

Dusty Baker said...

Three-stae if you think about Monday night game.

I like it.

Dusty Baker said...

^stage

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Four stages, since Thursday had three games.

Dusty Baker said...

I think that's what Sax meant; Thursday stage, then Sunday stage. That's two, then Monday makes three.

Any way you slice it, a lot of yummy football goodness.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Oh, I thought he was refering to the early slate of games.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

^referring

Dusty Baker said...

I'd like to refer to the embarrassingly thin LA Times sports section today. Even for that shrinking publication of that dying medium, today's was an absolute joke. I had to tape a quarter to it before I tossed it out just so I could say I threw something away.

Bonus gripe:

Here's a quote from Plaschke's "column":

"It was a touchdown. Then, it wasn't.

These are still the same old Trojans. No, they aren't.

In a rainy Saturday night mist, USC's forbidden autumn found itself on the fingertips of receiver Ronald Johnson..."

Who likes this fucking tripe? You fat, sweatered bastard, it's either raining or misty, but not both. And "forbidden autumn"? *gags*

I might re-subscribe just so I can cancel my subscription. It would make me feel better.

Mr. Customer said...

I hate that guy.

Orel said...

Good to see the Plaschke hate knows no seasonal boundaries.

Dusty Baker said...

hate Hate HATE!!!

Spanky said...

Who needs to buy the L.A.Times when Dusty re-writes everything on the SmackThread anyways.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm the living embodiment of New Media, Spank.

Dusty Baker said...

bloody Bloody BLOODY MARYS!!!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I'm getting even more sick of Plaschke now that he has rediscovered Twitter. I can't believe how trite he can be in just 140 characters.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Shouldn't that be "MARIES?"

Mr. Customer said...

Jesus Christ, l'pool continue to crap the bed when they're on the road. Can if be that hard? Fuck!

Mr. Customer said...

Wait, wrong football.

But the observation is still valid.

Dusty Baker said...

That has to hurt, Mr C. I was confused bc the broadcast had the scoreline at 2-1 before Lennon's goal to make it 3-1. Then realized that DeFoe's goal had been ruled out for offside, so the match was actually closer than I had thought.

Good match to watch as a neutral, though.

Spanky said...

Packers and Falcons in da crib.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Dusty Baker said...

Actually I believe that the plural of "Marys" in "Bloody Marys" remains "Marys" and doesn't take the "-ies" form, MLASC. Otherwise it would be changing a proper name, "Mary."

Spanky said...

I'd have to concur with Senor Booze.

Spanky said...

Goodson is a bad-ass.

Dusty Baker said...

As long as it's Goodson and not Steve Smith doing the scoring for Panthers.

Mr. Customer said...

@MLASC

God damn your Browns D for making me want Jimmy Claussen to be something other than an embarrassing and abject failure.

Spanky said...

Peyton Hillis just threw a pass?!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Why is Peyton Hillis throwing the ball eight yards out of the end zone?

Dusty Baker said...

In his high school days, there were some trick plays the Wampus Cats employed where Hillis would throw the ball. He never lined up under center to my knowledge, but had some successful passes. Wild hog/wildcat lookin' backfield...

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Oh thank heaven for Peyton Hillis.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

FUCK YEAH PEYTON HILLIS

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

FUMBLE RECOVERED BY ATLANTA!!!

Spanky said...

HaHa! Stupid Packers.

Dusty Baker said...

I was wanting another game in my TV region, but the ATL v Packers isn't a bad one.

Dusty Baker said...

Rodgers ain't hurt; he's embarrassed.

Spanky said...

Leodis

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

25 POINTS FOR PEYTON HILLIS AND THERE'S STILL 9 MINUTES LEFT IN THE FIRST HALF.

Dusty Baker said...

I miss talking about the US Postal Service.

Spanky said...

This ain't the right thread for that DB.

Dusty Baker said...

Oh, I know, and I would absolutely never go off topic in this sacred space.

Spanky said...

It is still the second quarter in the Panther/Brown game.

Spanky said...

NEVER!

Spanky said...

I have a feeling my luck is running out and MB will run away with this thing soon.

rbnlaw said...

Bloody Marys with Popov vodka? Eh, fuck the 'ov's I still say.

rbnlaw said...

I fucking hate Spurs.

Dusty Baker said...

Hell no, RBN. Ketel One up in dis bish!

Spanky said...

This is a weird day. Peyton Hillis throwing passes,The Accused punting and now I have received a crazy ass message from a homeboy.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Holy shit, F-Jax is a monster.

Dusty Baker said...

Hillis is just happy about his beloved Hogs winning yesterday.

Dusty Baker said...

And that Arkansas moved up to #8 in AP and Coaches polls today.

Hey, hey! Ho, ho! Arkansas in the Sugar Bowl!

Spanky said...

The Titans are not good.

Spanky said...

I need some James jones action right here man.

Dusty Baker said...

Have the Texans had the ball the entire game or what?

Not that I'm complaining. Chris Johnson and Nate Washington have a combined 0 points.

Dusty Baker said...

Oh, James Jones. At first I was thinking Jim Jones, and reaching for the poisoned Kool-Aid.

Spanky said...

James Jones is part of my mistake prone starting roster I put out this week. I think I was mesmerized by the Thanksgiving turkey.

Spanky said...

FFFUUUUCCCKKK!

Dusty Baker said...

How was your turkey by the way, Spank?

Spanky said...

Awww Dude, it was the second time I ever cooked one and I must say it came out superb. It had a crispy crust but was moist on the inside. Oven cooked BTW. And yours?

Spanky said...

This Falcon/Packer game is intense.

Spanky said...

OOOOh! TD Pack.

Dusty Baker said...

@Spank

Glad yours turned out well!

[Full disclosure: I'm a turkey freak like the Old Man in the movie "A Christmas Story." I work with turkey the way artists work with oils and clay.]

Mine was the best I've ever made, and I make two per year (one each for T-giving and Xmas) and have for at least 15 yrs. Don't know what it was but I just fucking NAILED this bird this year. Tender and moist like Neebs' mom on prom night. Did it in the oven like you did.

Don't even get me started on the dressing.

Now I'm hungry. Need to go skeeze on some leftovers.

Dusty Baker said...

Don't know why but I'm liking Dirty South over Packers today. Feels right.

Spanky said...

Right on,Dusty. It was a good day for turkey eating. And don't get me started on the garlic mashed potatoes I made.

Dusty Baker said...

Hells yeah on the GMP.

Spanky said...

I need my Rams D to hold down B.Lloyd and then I might have a shot at this win.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Looks like the Vikes love Frazier a lot more than they ever liked Childress.

Spanky said...

Ain't that a bitch! FUCK!

Dusty Baker said...

Raidaz already up in dat bish!!! Fuck yeah.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I did say F-Jax is a monster, right?

MeanieBreanie said...

Epale Y'all
As much as I would like it to be, I don't think this is my week for football. Spank, we still have a ways to go but I concede. It would take some sort of miracle for me to pull this off with the lack of scoring my team is having.

Maybe I should name them The Underachievers.

Dusty Baker said...

Epale, MB! Is the T-giving hangover behind you now?

MeanieBreanie said...

Epale DB! Thankfully the TG hangover is gone. I love CHAMPAGNE but too much and the after effects are something else. I might have to consult with you on the Turkey. Mine come out juicy and tender but I would never say "exceptional".

BTW, love the new picture of you and Mrs. Dusty. You did well son. She's very cute!

Dusty Baker said...

Cheers, MB. I feel uphill on that one, as the old saying goes!

Spanky said...

It's a close game.

Spanky said...

It just got closer.

Spanky said...

Oh Snap! My bench has 10 more points than my starters.

Spanky said...

TODD HEAP IN DIS BISH!

Eric Karros said...

First Vick pick of the season, in the end zone no less

Spanky said...

You should have started Bradford, Meanie.

Dusty Baker said...

Who tha fuck is Dwayne Brown??

Spanky said...

Dwayne Brown? You mean Dwayne Bowe, DB?

Dusty Baker said...

Yeah, that punk ass.

Spanky said...

How is my team in the playoff chase?

Dusty Baker said...

@Spanky

League parity.

Spanky said...

Today's Jay Cutler was the one I was expecting all year. Not the -3 point one.

Spanky said...

Oh Shit. I may have jumped the gun.

Spanky said...

Holy Shit. Don't even tell me.

Spanky said...

Rams D is killing me.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

You just won, Spank.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I'm going to need a pedestrian game from Reggie Wayne to pull out a victory.

Spanky said...

Dude, you were beating Mr.C big time. WTF happened?

Spanky said...

I think I may have to start Matt Cassel next week.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

DeSean Jackson got me nothing.

Dusty Baker said...

New BCS rankings unveiled in 3...2...1...

Mr. Customer said...

So. Wayne versus Davis +6?

This is probably going to the wire, MLASC.

Mr. Customer said...

@Spank

I was getting torched, but Orton woke up.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

The professor must have loved that TD.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I might get some points back tomorrow on the Browns' D, since one of the touchdowns Carolina had was a pick-six.

Mr. Customer said...

@MLASC

I hate being within the margin of error.

Dusty Baker said...

Auburn takes over BCS #1 spot. Hogs move to #7.

NicJ said...

leslie nielsen died?


what a bummer.

NicJ said...

avatar change.

hey im winning!!

Dusty Baker said...

Enrico Pollazo was best ump ever.

Spanky said...

Surely you jest, Nic. Right?

Spanky said...

*pours some out for Frank Drebin

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Just a two point lead going into halftime. Hopefully Manning continues to ignore Wayne as he has so far.

Dusty Baker said...

Tolbert is hurt, too. Not looking good for the LA Stat Lickers.

Spanky said...

I just saw that Steve Johnson dropped a wide open bomb in the end zone during overtime. I dodged a fucking bullet.He blames god for the drop.

Dusty Baker said...

Ahhhh, Manning's third pick. Of course.

Used up all my karma with the Arkansas game, I guess.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Yes! Wayne has a pedestrian game! .500 record for the first time since we started this damn thing!

Dusty Baker said...

Did I say three picks? I meant four. Fuck me, Manning. God fucking dammit.

*mad at MLASC for making play fantasy football*

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Cry me a river, Mr. Nine-and-Three.

Dusty Baker said...

If SF defense lays an egg, it could be 10-2.

Mr. Customer said...

Back to 500, I guess. Looks like it's win or go home next week for the wildcards.

NicJ said...

well its a good thing you have a bye, i mean play me.

Mr. Customer said...

Ha! Well, everyone pulls out the big guns to play me. It's entirely possible that all 3 of the WC will lose and go in with a winning record.

Spanky said...

This next week of do or die FF is going to be carazay. The tie breaking action will be confusing, like a Torre lineup.

karina said...

I'm a loser...why am I getting couple of outstanding performances by my opponents EVERY week?

:(

Mr. Customer said...

@k

I hear ya. Such is the mystery that is Fantasy Football. On the upside, it's reinforces my belief that I shouldn't gamble.

Jason said...

@DB - You should disband your team if you end up losing to me after I got a combined score of negative one out of my running backs. Mind you, one of those backs was the first overall choice in the draft. What a clusterf*%&! *

Spanky said...

I HATE the Niners almost as much as I HATE the Gnats. Actually, now that I am comparing them,they are equal. Fuck'em both! I'm outta here.
