Biggest Fantasy Football Duds 2010 edition

In pop culture, Sports on December 10, 2010 at 9:15 pm

Ah what a year! After running two under-achieving fantasy squads this year, the Repoman knows firsthand the pain associated with watching your number 1 WR or stud RB perform like a ballerina in pads. What about the #1 QB knocked out for the season early? Trust me, your pain is my pain.

After reading this piece written TheMikePhillips, the RepoMan felt inspired to present his first annual Fantasy “You Drafted Joe Flacco 5th Overall?” Fail Awards. Without further ado, let the relive the agony in all its infamy…


Donovan McNabb ~ Washington: How bad has McNabb been this year? He was actually benched at the end of a close game for Rex (gasp)Grossman! 12TD vs 15 INT, and a legion of peeved owners who thought they were getting a steal drafting this bum in the mid to late rounds. Even his momma took his Chunky Soup back

Kevin Kolb ~ Philadelphia: the “chosen one” struggled early on after being anointed the starter. Injured early on, quickly lost his job to Mike Vick. A mid-season injury to Vick gave Kolb the chance to win his job back, but pedestrian numbers quickly resulted in Vick as the starter. Kolb’s game is so boring that most people who drafted him as a sleeper now deny ever having heard of him.

Brett Favre ~ Minnesota: Favre has never been right this year. Blame it on Brad Childress and their power struggle, or Jenn Sterger and the infamous “pee-pee gate”, but 10 TDs and 18 INTs are hardly overwhelming numbers. May want to lay of the Viagra, never send a text pic again, zip up his Wranglers and ride off into the sunset. He’s done,

Running Backs

Ronnie Brown ~ Miami: 3 TDs, ZERO 100 yard games in 2010. I think Ronnie may be channeling another famous Brown on the gridiron…

Reggie Bush ~ New Orleans: Bush is the only backup RB in the league that is drafted 100% of the time based on his potential to put up #1 RB stats, especially in PPR leagues. O TDs in 2010. Rumor has it that President Obama redid his health care plan to make sure that Bush would have coverage because the Saints won’t cover him. Premiums are too high. Looks like Kim Khardashian jumped ship at the right time.

Shonn Greene ~ NY Jets: 1TD, 3 fumbles, 600 yards…not exactly the stats owners were expecting when they took this player in the early/mid rounds. The man expected to turn LT from Hall-of-Famer to 3rd down back, Greene has been arguably the biggest let down at the RB position of 2010.

Wide Receivers

Brandon Marshall~Miami Dolphins : With only 1 TD in 2010 and only two 100 yard games this year, it’s fitting that he plays in south Florida because his game has definitely been MIA.

Steve Smith ~ Carolina: 498 yards, 2TDs, 2 Fumbles. Not exactly #1 WR numbers. With the QB woes in Carolina continuing, this is definitely the “wrong” Steve Smith to have on your roster.

Michael Crabtree ~ San Francisco: Stats are just ok (41 catches, 554 Yds, 5 TDs) but “CrapTree” was the flavor of draft day, with many people picking him in the 1st 3 rounds. Has a ton of upside, but you got very little if you reached for this guy in keeper leagues this season

We won’t cover TE(since most leagues replace with ‘flex’ player anyway), K(since no one cares) and DST (because this is always a crap shoot). i’m sure you could compile a list with players I didn’t even consider, but this is a good starting point.

To those whose season’s are still going strong, congrats. Regardless of what everyone in your league says, You’ve earned it. For the rest of us, welcome back to the real world. You can now go back to watching football for pleasure again.

Who Gives a Crap?

Ah…ain’t life grand? Somewhere, it is guaranteed that the sun is shining, the birds are singing, and stupid sh%# is making headlines. Here are some of the recent stories that left us shaking our head…

Rescued Chilean miners reunite…to play soccer with their President???msnbc.com Are those son-of-a-bit$%#s out of that damn hole already? Great. Now get them off my fuc%&ing tv! I didn’t give a crap about them before this, and they sure don’t give a crap about me now. Let’s move on…

Miami Heat lose opening night to the Boston Celticsespn.com Stop the presses! Hide your valuables! The Miami Heat, gasp, lost their season opener! Someone, call in the Tea Party to fix this mess! C’mon people, there are 82 freaking regular season games and no one expected them to go undefeated. Get Over it

MLB World Series Game 1 Tonightthebiglead.com This weekend marks NFL week 8…WEEK 8! The NBA season is kicking off this week as well. What in the world is major league baseball doing starting the world series so late? It’s bad enough that you have two teams whose mere existence echoes my “Who Gives a Crap?” mantra, but now you are competing against two of the largest sports in the world? And the award for Dumbasses of the year, 2010, goes to Major League Baseball! Yay…I pee’d in the pool…yay

Unless Tim Lincecum is tackling Cliff Lee for a 5 yard loss, I’m going to pass on this one.

NFL Pick ‘Em Week 6

In Sports on October 15, 2010 at 8:08 pm

Last week was rough, with upsets left and right. The Repoman finished with an undistinguished 8-6 record and my thoughts of a magical run as “Repo the Greek” came crashing down. Definitely nothing worth bragging about but the track record indicates that there is hope on the horizon:

Week 2: 13-3
Week 3: 12-4
Week 4: 10-5
Week 5: 8-6*

Here are this week’s picks (winners in BOLD):

Seattle at Chicago – Bears defense is tough; ‘Hawks offense is tough to watch

Miami at Green Bay – Aaron Rodgers may play, but the likelihood that he gets knocked out again gives the slight edge to Miami.

San Diego at St. Louis – Rams play tough but Rivers is just too good

Baltimore at New England – Ravens “D” is hurting and old. Brady/Branch reunion tour starts with win here

New Orleans at Tampa Bay – Champs winning ugly…but, still, they are winning

Detroit at NY Giants – pity Matthew Stafford if they throw him in this game. G Men are ferocious with the pass rush

Atlanta at Philadelphia – battle of the birds goes to Atlanta. Turner should have a big week here

Cleveland at Pittsburgh – Cleveland sucks.

Kansas City at Houston – KC offense reminds some of a pop warner all star game. Texans are skilled and tough up front.

Oakland at San Francisco – Mike Singletary lives to coach another day in one of this week’s least attractive matchups

NY Jets at Denver – **upset of the week** – Jets are imposing but Kyle Orton has been absolutely bananas! Broncos should surprise here

Dallas at Minnesota – someone has to win, right? Look for Moss/Favre to have a big day and the Vikes to win handily.

Indianapolis at Washington – ‘Skins have definitely surprised this year but they are facing a rare animal Sunday. A desperate Peyton Manning…Colts win

Tennessee at Jacksonville – let’s just call this the “blackout bowl” because no one wants to see it. Jags at home

·Bye: Buffalo, Cincinnati, Arizona, Carolina

* You know its a screwy week 5 when Turdfergusonblog only got one pick wrong! I thought they had a chimp making the picks over there!

NFL Pick ‘Em Week 5

In Sports on October 5, 2010 at 7:11 pm

Jacksonville at Buffalo – Coming off a win over the “mighty” Colts, Jaguars should make short work of the winless Bills

Tampa Bay at Cincinnati – Although they did just lose to the worst team in the NFL, I still like the “Bungles” at home over the Bucs

Atlanta at Cleveland – Browns winning streak over at one

St. Louis at Detroit – call it the “Someone’s Got to Win” Bowl if you must, but I like Lions at home

Kansas City at Indianapolis – and the last undefeated team falls here

Green Bay at Washington – Packers should have enough to hold off the “Jekyll and Hyde” Redskins

Chicago at Carolina – if Cutler plays, Bears win. If not, watch something else because this one will be too ugly for TV

Denver at Baltimore – I like the Ravens at home, although Broncos could surprise

NY Giants at Houston – Giants rediscovered their pass rush against Chicago this past week. Schaub better get rid of the ball quick or his will be a short night.

New Orleans at Arizona – Even though they are misfiring right now, the champs have enough to hold off the redbirds.

San Diego at Oakland – this one could be closer than everyone thinks, but Rivers will be too much for the Raiders this week

Tennessee at Dallas – coming off a win and a bye, the Cowboys should be healthy and ready to rumble. ‘Boys should win this one by 10+

Philadelphia at San Francisco – toss up…San Fran has been a disappointment thus far but Kolb has yet to prove that he’s a winner

Minnesota at NY Jets **Upset of the Week** – Brett and the boys are coming off a bye week. The rest does them well as they win a close one in the new Meadowlands stadium
