A HECK OF A WAY TO START THE ROAD BACK!


After two road starts against the top two teams in the NFL, Patrick Ramsey will finally get a chance to show what he can do against a reasonable opponent this Sunday, when the New York Giants come to FedEx Field for a 3:15 kickoff. Last week at Heinz field, the offense continued their confusing performance by only handing the ball off to Clinton Portis 7 times . . . in the WHOLE GAME. I just don't understand that..........

This week the El-Manning-led Giants come to town for a rematch of our "Fumblerama" game in September. We turned the ball over 7 times in that fiasco, and STILL had a chance to win it at the end ~ ~ so if we can cut down on the giveaways, we can get one in the "W" column this week!

BURGUNDY & GOLD FANTASY FOOTBALL LEAGUE ~ UPDATE ~ WEEK 12


We are down to the wire in the playoff run, and only one playoff spot is finalized.

Game Over (Danny Zegan, owner) locked up the top spot in the Gold Conference and also the first round bye with a win over 70-Chip (Kenn Jackson, owner).

Calley's Allstars (John Priddy, owner) lost a critical Conference game to Hellfish (Matt Goldie, owner) due to a total lack of production at the QB spot.

TDsnDC (Carl Murphy, owner) strengthened his hold on the top spot in the Burgundy Conference by downing K.D.I. (Chad Costa/Scott Howerton, owners).

The Redskins (Linda Domin, owner) failed to capitalize on the TDsnDC loss when the Redskins lost to Jerry's 421 (Mary Priddy, owner) who succeeded due to Willis McGahee's explosion.

Unsung Heroes (John Domin, owner) edged Primetime (Rodney Twyman, owner) who left big points on the bench when he started Warrick Dunn over Corey Dillon.

Standings:

Burgundy Conference Gold Conference
TDsnDC . . . . . . . 7-5 Game Over. . . . . . . 10-2
