I don’t even know why I post anymore. Y’all should already know that every week, I’ll lose yet another player or two for rest of the year, making my already ravagED lineup, even more paper thin. So this week, I lost Daunte Culpepper for the year, making my hurt QB hit count to like 6 or something ridiculous like that. A warning to Brad Johnson and Gus Frerotte: Your season may end in week 9!!! It’s the curse of Ed’s lineup!

So My Updated Frankenstein linrup is:
QB B. Johnson (replaces injured Boller/Warner/Culpepper)
QB G. Frerotte (replaces injured Bulger/Volek/Dorsey)
WR A. Chatman (replaces traded TO)
WR J. Horn (returning from injured hammy)
RB C. Portis (replaces injured Deuce)
RB F. Taylor (returning from injured ankle)
TE J. Wiggins (replaces injured Bubba and waived Troupe)
W/R A. Bryant (replaces injured Ahman)
W/R M. Moore (replaces traded Stephen Davis)
W/R A. Smith (waiver because of stupid Deuce)
BN V. Testaverde (insurance policy for next QB to go down)
BN M. Shipp (waiver)
BN T. Henry (returning from suspension)
BN C. Perry (waiver)
BN M. Bulger (injured, hopefully for just one more week)
BN M. Robinson (waiver)
BN C. Rogers (waiver)
K –empty– (I can’t even afford to start a kicker)
DEF Tampa Bay
D B. Urlacher
DB –empty– (injuries to Madieu/Ed Reed/Kiel)

It just keeps getting better and better. Now, my third overall pick is out for the year. What does this mean? I’m able to use 2 of my top 12 picks (and one is gimpy!) and a grand total of 5 from my original 20! ABSOLUTELY FRIGGEN RIDICULOUS! I hate you Fantasy Football Gods!!! First and third picks out for the season? Are you kidding me??? What did I do to deserve this? Haha! Oh well, if I can somehow weather the storm for the next few weeks, my QB and star receiver should be coming back (*crossing fingers*). My utility RB is also coming back from a league imposed suspension. Hopefully, my luck will change and he’ll start and have a monster year. I’ll be needing any kind of luck now. Heck I deserve it right about now don’t I???

So I just replied to JO’s comment, complaining about my bunch of goons and also saw Kelv’s hilarious blog, so I thought I’d write my own to complain/vent. Be prepared to laugh your @$$e$ off…So I came into the season with great optimism and joy. As the returning champ, I figured I at least had as much of a shot to win it all than anyone. This year, there are three chances to win: 1) Regular Season Champ, 2) Playoff Champ and 3) Total Points, none of which I have a flying chance for now. We also implemented a now deemed lame 2 QB scoring system. I personally say “now deemed lame” because at the beginning of the season it seemed like a good idea. You know, something different. But now that I’m like on my 5th QB from the wonderful gem pool of the waiver wire, it stinks!

Playing Fantasy Football with the boys is our annual tradition. One of those things you can look forward to every year. It gives you a chance to bond with fellas you don’t normally talk to on a daily basis and trash talk your brains out. I used to be pretty good at it, but frankly, with the way my guys are dropping like flies this year, I don’t think I can really talk all that much…. YET! Check out my drafted players and the status for each of them:

  1. Deuce (Out for year)
  2. Bulger (Out – shoulder)
  3. Ahman (Out for year)
  4. TO (Traded) – for Daunte (now out for year)
  5. Taylor (Hobbled – ankle)
  6. Horn (Out – hammy)
  7. Warner (Out – groin)
  8. Coles (Waived)
  9. Henry (Suspended)
  10. New England (Waived)
  11. Mewelde
  12. Stephen Davis (Traded) – for Portis (Hobbled – leg)
  13. A Smith (Waived, then picked up because of stupid Deuce)
  14. Urlacher
  15. Boller (Out – Toe… waived)
  16. Madieu (Out – now possibly out for the year… waived)
  17. Chris Perry (waived, then picked up… still a backup)
  18. Fason (Waived)
  19. Bubba (Out… Waived)
  20. Longwell (Waived)

So my Frankenstein lineup (created mostly from the waiver wire) now looks like this:

QB D. Culpepper (knee)
QB B. Volek (concussion)
WR A. Bryant (streaky)
WR A Hakim (temporary Horn replacement)
RB C. Portis (calf and often scoreless)
RB F Taylor (ankle)
TE J. Wiggins (waiver pickup)
W/R M. Moore
W/R A. Smith (stupid Deuce replacement)
W/R M. Shipp
K –empty–
DEF Tampa Bay
D B. Urlacher
DB –empty–
BN C. Perry (backup)
BN J. Horn (hammy)
BN M. Bulger (shoulder)
BN T. Henry (suspension)
BN A. Chatman (recent waiver pickup)
BN F. Gore (Getting desperate aren’t I?)

From my originally drafted team, I’m only using 5 of them this week (Ahman, Mewelde, Antowain Smith, Chris Perry and Urlacher), two of whom I once waived and nobody claimed. *sigh* STOP LAUGHING! It’s not funny!

Well, I guess I can look on the bright side. Even with this wretched lineup, I’m still only in 3rd place and we’re only about at the half season mark. Some of my guys will hopefully be healed from their injuries and I can potentially compete when they come back and I’m back to full strength. Wish me luck. I’m also in first place for my work league with a little better luck with guys staying healthy and performing up to par. See, there’s always a silver lining…

To bore you guys even further, here’s my slightly better lineup for work… Enjoy!
