Weekend Observations

This week it wasn’t the fantasy football gods that ruined my teams, it was the injury bug that bit me.  Losing A.J. Green, Shady McCoy, and Robert Woods is too much for any man to overcome.

In my trash talking league I’m up by 14 points, but my opponent has Latavius Murray going tonight.  Last week he scored 3 touchdowns.  I don’t think my lead is safe.  In my hurt your feelings league I lost by 2 even though I had the Russ/Jimmy combo in full effect.  I’m actually protesting this loss because I think you should get double points if your quarterback catches a touchdown.  I’ll let you know how the appeal process goes.  Here are some observations over the weekend.

You probably haven’t noticed, but the Miami Dolphins have won 5 in a row with games coming up against San Francisco and Baltimore.  Don’t let Cam Buford see this, but after a dismal 1-4 start the Phins look like a playoff team.

Jimmy Johnson captured his 7th NASCAR cup tying the great Dale Earnhardt and Richard Petty.  Barring unforeseen catastrophe he will break the record next year.

After an embarrassing loss to Kansas Texas football coach Charlie Strong will be out of a job by week’s end.  I was pulling for the guy to do well at such a prestigious school, but his body of work sucked.  Can’t blame anyone but himself for not getting this team bowl eligible.

NFL kickers missed a record 12 extra points on Sunday.  Moving the attempt back could be the biggest rule change in the history of professional sports.  Someone will lose a playoff game this season because of a missed PAT.
