I do love a good tie. Now I don’t love them for a good reason, more-so for the sheer comedy of it. Sunday the Packers and Lions made my day, playing to a 26 all tie at Lambeau. For all the bashing of soccer and how people call it a joke that ties are allowed, it still happens in the biggest league of them all. I don’t see why we just don’t go to sudden death after the first 15 minute period. It is not like it happens very often, we have only seen 4 ties in the past 15 years, and you would think it would be welcomed by fans and players alike.
But yea, onto the important stories from Sunday’s action:
Whats your fantasy?
Its been a while so I will give you a quick update: Aaron Rodgers broken collarbone is killing my fantasy team. The other thing hurting me late is that the Falcons are fucking horrible!!!! I have Roddy White who was sitting on my bench all season, I finally put him in two weeks ago and I might as well have just left the spot open. Atlanta needs to stop sucking offensively so I can have a chance, because Tony Gonzalez and Roddy White are making me cry. Even with the deficiencies I have clinched a playoff spot, but without Rodgers I am forced to rely on Carson Palmer and Andy Daulton for the foreseeable future.
GO CHAR-GAS GO!
My Chargers had themselves a hell of a Sunday, as they went into Kansas City and knocked off the Chiefs in a 41-38 thriller. Going into Sunday I said the Bolts needed to go 5-1 to secure a playoff spot, and a win against the 9 win Chiefs was the best start possible. The schedule is tough down the stretch, starting this Sunday with a very tough Bengals team. After that they will face the Giants, Chiefs, and Raiders at home with a Thursday night trip to Denver sandwiched in. With a cluster of teams stuck at 5-6 right now, 3-2 may secure a playoff spot. I am not expecting a playoff birth, but anything is possible with the parity in the league this year.
I will be heading back to the Q this weekend for the Bolts/Bengals game, and it will be great to see the 1963 team inducted in the Ring of Honor.
