Last Sunday’s games weren’t great for anyone in our league, but no one was able to accomplish what mine did: 51 points. Still in seventh place, oddly enough.
QB Ben Roethlisberger: One touchdown, which put him in the top spot for points scored. Yay for ball control.
WR Wes Welker: 19 yards against the surprising Browns defense.
WR Calvin Johnson: 3 yards against the surprising Redskins defense. It’s a theme!
WR Marques Colston: Had the best day of all: 31 yards. Wow.
RB Kevin Jones: Not a bad day for a guy who’s barely been able to play this season. I don’t know how the Lions are using him, but I like the running/receiving combination.
RB Frank Gore: Probably should have listened to my inner voice that says, “Don’t start anyone who’s playing against the Ravens.”
TE Dallas Clark: Another touchdown! What’s the record for tight ends?
K Jason Elam: He provided the only points against San Diego. Unfortunately, Denver didn’t score many points against SD.
DEF Carolina: Decent interception numbers. Playing against QB Drew Brees has its advantages.
Points Scored: 51.
Points Left on the Bench: 25. No one was having a good day. Bench has scored 216 points so far.
Big Changes: Goodbye, Drew Brees. Picked up David Garrard to replace him. Not a lot of scoring, but few mistakes. Dropped RB Thomas Jones for TE Chris Cooley (with a brief flirtation with QB Kurt Warner) due to a bye week for Dallas Clark.
Benched No More: Almost not worth talking about. I have so many players on their bye week everyone who isn’t on a bye is starting.
Watching: Kurt Warner, now that he’s starting, but he has a tough schedule coming up.
On TV tonight: Right now, It’s LSU vs. Kentucky in overtime. The CBS color commentator (Gary Danielson?) has apparently converted to a religion centered on LSU coach Les Miles. The best line, after a disputed touchdown call for Kentucky? “Read Les Miles’ lips! He says they didn’t get in!”
