2011 – Week 4

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. After Devin Hester scored a return TD against the Panthers this week, he celebrated with this little number:

Later in the game, former Gopher Marion Barber scored a rushing TD and decided he wanted to pay homage to Hester. Unfortunately he bit off more than he could chew:

And then Ronnie Brown, inspired by Michael Vick’s big passing day, decided to honor the Eagles QB by throwing a pass of his own. Of course, he was in the midst of a pileup at the time and no one on his team knew the “play” was coming.

That’s a fumble, my friends. And the “Dream Team” Eagles are sitting ugly at 1-3. Maybe we should just put a stop to all this copy-catting right now.

And one of our undefeated teams has fallen! On a more negative note, a winless team stayed that way. Here are your scores:
The Phantom Limbs (Peter) – 100
Monday Night (Phil) – 64
JAWS (Dave) – 117
Pacifist Assassins (John) – 86
Marshmallow Mateys (Cory) – 75
Real Lucky Charms (Eric) – 81
team name pending (Aaron) – 75
KRUG Kommandant (Denny) – 136
The Cutlass Cieras (Chris W.) – 94
Nana Nancy Unit (Tyler) – 122
Fumblecopter (Andy) – 133
The Almighty Muffins (Mike) – 121
And down go the Mateys! It appears that Brigadier General Mills took over Eric’s squad this week to edge out the off brand in a low scoring affair. Cory falls for the first time this year. Fumblecopter, on the other hand, was able to win an entertaining shootout game against the Muffins to remain undefeated. The combo of Aaron Rodgers and Matt Forte is looking almost unbeatable at this point. Of course, it was KRUG who notched the highest score of the week, 136, in a victory over The Team Who Shall Not Be Named. 32 of those points came from the Ravens defense! Nana Nancy always seems to find a way to win and this week she downed the Cieras by a sizable margin. The Limbs scored a 100, but Monday Night’s rough week meant they had no chance against any team. The Assassins had a decent scoring week, but JAWS may have the most solid across-the-board starting lineup (getting double digits from every spot but DEF this week) and got the win.

All eyes in the Premier League were on the matchup between the two highest scoring teams in the league. The game definitely lived up to its billing. And another undefeated team gets a reality check. Scores:
Mean Regressors (Chris A.) – 67
Nerd Herd (Bob) – 94
sasquatches r real! (Darren) – 96
Blackhearts (Jon) – 58
Waffle Housers (Nate) – 103
diddy (Jim) – 88
The Russell (The Russell) – 106
The Alchemist (Chris T.) – 128
McChamps (Tom) – 75
Beer Boys (Hyatt) – 119
Glass Joe (Bernt) – 108
a couple 13 14 wins (Wayne) – 111
The shootout between Russell and the Alchemist went the way of the Alchemist! Thompson’s team remains undefeated and Russ, despite being the highest scoring squad, is 2-2. Credit that Raven’s D again for Chris’ victory. It was a rude awakening for the McChamps when they could only muster 75 points against the 119 onslaught from Hyatt’s team. But perhaps this is just what the doctor ordered, a dose of humility? They’ll need to get their act together for next week’s game against The Alchemist. The Nerd Herd are celebrating their first win of the season as they defeated the Mean Regressors! No winless teams remain in the PL! It was a nailbiter for Bernt and Wayne as their squads seemed evenly matched, but Wayne has Cam Newton and that gave him the slight edge he needed for a 3 point win. Blackhearts were stuck in neutral this week and got passed up by the ‘quatches for a rough loss. And the Waffle Housers spent last week buying up talent with waiver money and were rewarded with a win over diddy!

team of the week logo.jpg
This week, we honor the week’s highest scoring team: KRUG Kommandant! After not scoring 100+ at all this year, KRUG exploded for 136 this week! Arian Foster finally got going and that Ravens Defense may have been the MVP of the week! In fact, KRUG also has the lowest points against in the LoC! Hmm… In any case, the win catapulted KRUG to 3rd place and they will be popping champagne.

This marks the beginning of NFL bye weeks! Time to show you know your way around your roster and the waiver wire! These teams will be golfing on Sunday: Cleveland, Dallas, St. Louis, Miami, Washington and Baltimore. Is anyone dropping the Raven’s D this week??! 
Until Next Week,
Commish Peter
