There were problems across the board. Running through the positions: Daunte Culpepper, with 1 point even against the Titans, is banished from my team. Alex Smith will be my new starter, and I picked up Buffalo QB J.P. Losman for my bench. My running backs still aren’t that strong (top guys score in the mid-twenties), and will be hurt further this week since Shaun’s out with the broken foot. I just plain played the completely wrong wide receivers. (Look at Keyshawn Johnson! Argh!) L.J. Smith played well for being hurt — I’m hoping he keeps hanging on. The Seahawks D sort of fell apart, but at least I didn’t play New England instead… It may be time to consider picking up a new bench D. And Elam did alright, but after this weekend, I dropped Gostkowski for Rian Lindell (also Buffalo).
This weekend I play my boss (who’s loaded up with LaDainian Tomlinson, Laveranues Coles, Donald Driver, etc, and has been scoring in the 90’s). I don’t expect the post-weekend report to be much better next week. At least the Eagles are playing for Monday Night Football!
