Wow You Guys Suck: Denver's Defense, Sammy Morris came into the game averaging 3.2 yards a carry. The Broncos turned Sammy Morris into Jim Brown. Matt Cassel came into the game off his worst start. The Broncos turned Matt Cassel into Tom Brady. They are really really bad. Runners Up: The Chiefs Rush Defense, The Raiders Rush Defense.
This Scarecrow Needs a Brain: Brett Favre, Hey let's just lob up a hail mary down 3 to nobody on your own team. That's gonna work out brilliantly. Runners Up: Why was Jay Cutler still playing when they were getting killed and he was already injured, Shannahan deciding he was going to call timeouts to let the Pats set up just how they were going to beat them on 4th and 1.
Cough Cough Cough: Cleveland Browns, Down 3 with the ball on the 36 yardline with 46 seconds and no timeouts, the Browns had the opportunity to move into tying field goal range. Instead Derek Anderson dropped back to pass three times, threw three straight incompletions and then watch Phil Dawson missed the 50+ yard attempt. Ouch. Runners Up: Indy really doesn't want to win the division this year, the Jets want to lose to bad teams that commit 87 penalties a game.
The Shocker: The Downturn of the Cowgirls, So much for the most talented team in the league moniker. Apparently you also need talent on defense to win ball games. Who Knew? Runners Up: I thought New England would win but damn, I don't know if anybody saw the Bills as a 5-1 team this year.
The Pimp: Sebastian Janikowski, Game winning field goals are a dime a dozen. Game winning field goals from 57 yards that easily would have been good from 65 yards never happen. Janikowski showed cockiness and skill in sticking a dagger in my heart. Runners Up: All Titan Running backs, Steven Jackson putting a hurting on the Cowgirls.
You Got Jakked Up: Keith Rivers, Broken Jaw Ouch
My Fantasy MVP: Steven Jackson, Hoorah 38 points and my second win of the season. ya onto the championship I go...
New York Jets MVP: Jay Feely, Who the hell saw him kicking a 52 yarder? Certainly not me, nor the broadcasters.
