Did your Stud go Dud?
Wow! What a horrible time for the winter chill to hit the NFL. The wind and the snow turned fantasy dreams into fantasy nightmares. Chances are if you thought you were going to ride Tom Brady to the promised land, you got dropped off one stop too short on Third Place Game Boulevard. Terrific Tom wasn’t the only one to disappoint. He had plenty of company.
Obviously Tom Brady was the biggest named QB to flounder this weekend, but Tony Romo and Derek Anderson also had monumental flops. Romo’s girlfriend sure looked good though.
At running back Romo’s teammate Marion Barber III was the biggest fantasy final four flop. Rudi Johnson was right there with him, but you probably knew you were taking a chance with Rudi.
It didn’t stop there. At Wide Receiver Terrell Owens owned Top Flop honors. Also nominated were Joey Galloway, Plaxico Burress, Lee Evans, Roddy White, and Wes Welker. Randy Moss and Braylon Edwards produced much less than usual.
Antonio Gates has all but disappeared down the stretch. His team scored 51 and all he could muster up was 8 yards. Kellen Winslow, Dallas Clark, and Jeremy Shockey also stunk.
How about a big, fat zero for Rian Lindell. Did you see that coming against Cleveland? How about two points for Jeff Reed? If you lost because of a kicker, I especially feel your pain.
How about Indy’s defense. No sacks or turnovers against Oakland. Really? Same with Seattle.
Chances are if you had any of these players you were sent packing. If not, consider yourself lucky. I don’t see them failing two weeks in a row.
I couldn’t get a picture of Jessica Simpson in her pink Tony Romo jersey from Icon Sports Media just yet, but feast your eyes on her singing at a Texans game. It won’t keep you from being eliminated this week, but it is a sight for sore eyes.
