2012 – Week 6



Inline image 1
Football is a dangerous game. It’s unpredictable. If we’ve learned anything this NFL season, it’s that we know nothing. On Thursday, the Steelers lost to the Titans who were coming off a 30-7 whooping by the Vikings who lost badly this week to the Redskins. Every team in the AFC East is 3-3 on the season. The underperforming Packers demolishing the previously unbeaten Texans in Houston. Well, the Packers did bring a contingent of their fans along, so maybe it felt like home.

And then there was this play, which included a blocked punt, a near safety, a wild pass, an interception and a TD all in about 25 seconds:

Yowza! Did you follow all that!?

And at the end of the weekend, there was only 1 undefeated team left standing in the NFL: the Falcons. Strangely enough, the same is true in the Hiawatha Leagues. Only one team remains undefeated. But who!?

The LoC had a huge matchup this week between the current top two teams! The Limbs were looking for a “prove it” win over the undefeated Unstoppable Machine. What happened??? Scores: 

The Phantom Limbs (Peter) – 104
Unstoppable Machine (Tom) – 92

Blitzkrieg Bops (Mark) – 78
Marshmallow Mateys (Cory) – 75

Beer Boys (Hyatt) – 88
Cutlass Cieras RIP (Chris W.) – 90

Fumblecopter (Andy) – 102
Lucha Libre Horrible (Nate) – 92

Wyld Stallyns (Dave) – 48
The Alchemist III (Chris T.) – 107

Rüssnôçérôse (Russ) – 56
Lightning in a Bottle (Wayne) – 95
Bye Week (Matt) – 139
The Peacenik Hit-Men (John) – 98
Going into Monday Night Football, the Limbs held marginal lead with only the under-performing Antonio Gates left to go while Tom’s team had Demaryius Thomas and Malcolm Floyd. Well, Gates finally woke up and scored 20 points on MNF, easily outpacing Tom’s WR tandem! The Limbs knock the Machine off it’s pedestal and grab a share of the best record in the league! Sorry Tom!

Elsewhere, Bye Week was the recipient of career games from both Aaron Rodgers AND Shonn Greene! The Hit-Men never knew what hit them! Matt’s team was projected for only 86 points! That’s two tough losses in a row for the Hit-Men after their tie last week became a loss thanks to a late scoring correction!

The Mateys had a real shot at their first win this week, but came up just 3 points sort of the Bops. Cory drops to 0-6 and doesn’t have much company at the bottom since Andy pulled off his 2nd straight win this week in beating Lucha Libre! It was a squeaker between the Beer Boys and Cieras, but Wachter grabs the narrow victory by 2! Nothing narrow about the last two games. The Stallyns have some soul-searching to do after being beaten by 59 points by The Alchemist! And, coming off an emotional week where a tie was turned into a win on Wednesday thanks to a scoring correction, Russ’ newly re-named team got smacked around by Lightning in a Bottle!

The PL had 1 undefeated team going into week 6: Nana Nancy – The Fantasy Savant. Could Tyler’s reign of indifference continue unabated?! Scores:

Gyro Gearloose (Bernt) – 101
Nerd Herd (Bob) – 104

The Dominators (Spencer) – 56

you want more juice? (Aaron) – 106
El Tigre Chino (Darren) – 62

The answer is “yes”. Tyler kept right on rolling this week, holding the Blackhearts to a season-low 55 points. Tyler only scored 80 this week, but it was enough. That’s 6 wins a row. Can anyone stop him?!

In the other big game, Bernt and Bob collided in a cellar-dweller battle royale! They were back and forth all weekend, but Bernt was pulling for Rivers on MNF to steal the win! Rivers started out red hot, but the Chargers 24-0 halftime lead turned into a 35-24 loss in which rivers had 4 INTs and 2 lost fumbles!!! Bernt is left to continue the search for his first win! Pulp notched the highest total of the week with 123 to beat Eric’s team. Tough loss there. The once-dominant Dominators had a rough week, only managing 56 points. Carl is thanking the schedule-makers for this week since his 69 points wouldn’t have been enough against most teams. The Muffins stepped up this week and handed Phil his 2nd loss on the year! Impressive! KRUG also got their 2nd loss, but at the hands of diddy. diddy is 3-3 despite having the 3rd highest point total! And Aaron’s team crushed El Tigre by 44 points for the biggest win of the week!

Nana Nacy! Tyler’s dominance this year now stands above the rest. As the last undefeated team, he’s proven that he knows what he’s doing. Consider this: Tyler is 6-0, has the highest total points in either league, still has $100 on his waiver budget and has made only ONE roster move so far!!

Another Thursday, more byes and TONS of injuries make for interesting weeks on the waiver wires. Keep working it.
