WVFL Week 8 Review

WHIZ-BANG GANG 98.38 - THE NEV-R-WINS 81.66

The WBG's 6-2 record couldn't be any more fraudalent if it was based in Nigeria. And wasn't Reggie Wayne supposed to be hurt or something?

Justin Fargas was almost the bye week FA pick up of the century, but unfortunately for the Nev-R-Wins, Felix Jones most definitely was not. Neither was Josh Scobee, who actually had a PAT blocked and only netted 1 point.


IRON CITY POUNDERS 79.76 - DOPPELGANGER 73.44

Caulen pointed out that a late Mike Bell fumble cost Doppelganger a shot at a win. It also cost a lot of people a Saints -10 cover in their betting pools. People like me. But what mainly cost Clint a win here was benching Steven Jackson, who had 22 points, compared to Bell's 2 and Lance Moore's 1. Why somebody would bench their FIRST ROUND DRAFT PICK against the Lions is a mystery that will never, ever be solved, not even if Clint told us personally why he did it.

The Pounders beat a team that benched their first round draft pick against the Lions by scoring 79 points to move to 5-3. Congratulations. That will certainly soothe the sting of Steve Slaton putting up -0.9 and possibly losing his job.


BROOKLINE BUCS 100.78 - ST. A'S CRUSADERS 87.70

The giving up on fantasy football hypothesis has already graduated to a theory, and with the Bucs' big win this week, it's on the verge of becoming law. On Friday last, Scoot Henry wrote "Good lord, I'm going to get smoked" in his smack talk window, that being the very antithesis of smack talk. He then went out and pinned up 100 points, even with starting Heath Miller on a bye and Brian Westbrook, who was declared out of the game sometime last week. The 40 points from Chris Johnson had a lot to do with it. I recommend the rest of you give up as soon as possible.

Shame that the Crusaders wasted the first good game from Greg Jennings.


THE PEOPLE'S ELBOW 90.68 - THE PURPLE SWIRLS 72.60

Another strategy teams should consider is not starting a tight end and playing at least one guy ruled out due to injury. The Elbow also did that this week with Winslow and Manningham and also won. 26 defensive points and one last blast from The Bullet Train carried the day.

35 Monday night points from Pierre Thomas and the Saints defense put some window dressing on this one, but it was never really close after 1:01pm Sunday.


FIREROCK ROCKERS 99.46 - ATLAS SHRUGGZ 68.28

Hey, everybody! It's Matt Forte! Where have you been, man? The party started eight weeks ago.

Three guys showed up to play for the Shruggz and the rest were basically useless. Look for super producers Manning, Peterson and Celek to go on strike next week in protest, punishing the world by removing their contributions from society.


DEATHFROMABOVE 111.96 - TURD SANDWICH 90.52

Well, now we know who has the best team in the league. At this point, all I can do is reiterate my prediction that DFA definitely will not win the title.
