The Dallas Cowboys are the most talked about 1-5 team second only to the 2-4 Minnesota Vikings. The Cowboys are now without their quarterback Tony Romo who will be out for the next 6-8 weeks with a broken clavicle (which in my humble opinion means he will not be back this year...I wouldn't if I were him). The Cowboys, as always, are great on paper, on the field...not so much. Now, they rest their hopes on the great Jon Kitna. Good luck with that 'Boys. The Minnesota Vikings are dealing with their wishy-washy coach Brad Childress and his temperamental quarterback Mr. Fredricksen, I mean, Mr. Favre. It seems now Paw-Paw's ankle is fractured, and it may be the cause of the end of his 291 game start streak. Paw-Paw...you have had a great career, but you have become a caricature of yourself with the Jenn Sterger debacle, the bad wheels, and general negative feelings about you, it might just behoove you to call it done and go come on home and rock on in the land of Favre.
Elsewhere, Cincinnati continues to flounder with their lackluster performances. The reigning AFC West Champion San Diego Chargers are, well, sucking. A. J., the sounds you are hearing is the cold, damp wind blowing in the basement of the AFC west. This team was picked by many to finally win the Super Bowl that has been just within their grasp for the last few years. Underachieving does not begin to explain the fall to last place. Then, there are the Broncos who have continued their slippage from last season. Last week, they were humiliated at home by the Raiders who spanked them 59-17. Excuse me? What's up, Lil' Hoodie? This year has not been good to former Dynasties, just look at the San Francisco 49ers. No, seriously, look at them...at least try. What is going on? I'm one of the suckers who picked them to go somewhere this year. I guess that somewhere turned out to be Ticketmaster because that's the only way they will get near the Super Bowl this year. At least, San Francisco still has the Giants...
It is criminal the things that are happening to my fantasy football teams. Last week, my Runtelldat Homeboys were smacked around with a final score of 43-187...43-187. Yes, there was a 1-8-7 on the Runtelldat Homeboys knocking them down to 12th place. *Sigh...I may have to retire from fantasy at the end of this season.
