2009 – Week 2

jjpick.jpg

The scoring explosion continued this week for a lot of teams. Chris Johnson owners had to be happy with his career day. Frank Gore also busted out with a big game and Drew Brees looks unstoppable at this point. Meanwhile, Tom Brady and the rest of the Patriots got pushed around by an upstart Jets team and if you’re loving life if you kept the faith and started Matt Schaub or Andre Johnson!  

As for the fantasy leagues, with two games in the books, we’ve got a clearer picture of who the contenders may be come December. 
Here’s what went down in the Premier League in Week 2:
Monday Night (Phil) – 90
Wyld Stallyns CS (Dave B.) – 92
Marshmallow Mateys (Cory) – 89
Dead Heads (Nate) – 62
diddy (Jim) – 127
Mighty Nimrods (Tom) – 86
Egon’s Ego (Bernt) – 91
Killer Canaries III (Bob) – 66
Stalins of Style (Chris A.) – 96
KRUG Kommanders (Denny) 86
Beer Boys (Hyatt) – 78
Kibbles & Vick (Frank) – 115
Phil took a heartbreaking loss considering he is the proud owner of Chris Johnson and his otherworldly game. The Beer Boys came back to earth a little bit, while Kibbles & Vick continued their high scoring ways. Mostly, however, parity seems to be the rule for now.
Current Premier Standings:

1. Kibbles & Vick 2-0-0 1.000 227
2. diddy 2-0-0 1.000 204
3. Wyld Stallyns CS 2-0-0 1.000 189
4. Beer Boys 1-1-0 .500 217
5. Stalins of Style 1-1-0 .500 171
6. KRUG Kommanders 1-1-0 .500 169 7
7. Marshmallow Mateys 1-1-0 .500 162 1
8. Egon’s Ego 1-1-0 .500 159
9. Dead Heads 1-1-0 .500 145 2
10. Mighty Nimrods 0-2-0 .000 195 1
11. Monday Night 0-2-0 .000 140 1
12. Killer Canaries III 0-2-0 .000 124


As for the League of Champions, here’s how Week 2 looked:

The Phantom Limbs (Peter) – 79
The Alchemists (Chris T.) – 89

Pacifist Assassins (John) – 82
Mightiest Muffins (Mike) – 104

Grandma Nancy (Tyler) – 102
Taking Chances (Wayne) – 79

The Bone Doctors (Chris W.) – 72
Russ’ Rowdy Rhinos (Russ) – 77

Rusty Shackelford (Aaron) – 95
The Tortilla Chips (Darren) – 136

Andy’s Embarrassment (Eric) – 110
Fumblecopter (Andrew) – 54

The Tortilla Chips absolutely exploded this week with 136 points (thanks in big part to Frank Gore AND Chris Johnson) and knocked off a feisty, high scoring Rusty Shackelford team. Grandma Nancy continues to look very strong as well. Tyler won it all last year; are we looking at a dynasty in the making?

Current LoC Standings:

1. Grandma Nancy 2-0-0 1.000 227
2. The Tortilla Chips 2-0-0 1.000 220
3. Russ’ Rowdy Rhinos 2-0-0 1.000 163
4. The Phantom Limbs 1-1-0 .500 190
5. The Alchemists 1-1-0 .500 180
6. Mightiest Muffins 1-1-0 .500 179
7. Andy’s Embarassment 1-1-0 .500 176
8. Rusty Shackelford 1-1-0 .500 173
9. Taking Chances 1-1-0 .500 173
10. Pacifist Assassins 0-2-0 .000 152
11. The Bone Doctors 0-2-0 .000 128
12. Fumblecopter 0-2-0 .000 124


So the standings are looking remarkably similar at this point.

Team of the Week
It’s gotta be The Tortilla Chips! Having two running backs score over thirty points each!? I don’t know if I’ve ever seen that before. Well done, Darren. Well done.

Can anyone take down the six undefeated teams? Which winless teams will pull a W this week? It remains to be seen!

Until Next Week,

Commish Peter
