>Well, after winning 10 straight games to get the #1 seed in the playoffs, my opponents players decided to show up in a big way… and mine didn’t.  He had both Dallas Clark and Steve Smith; Clark had a mere 142 receiving yards and 1 TD, and Smith had 165 receiving yards and 1 TD.  He also had Philip Rivers, who managed to throw 2 TD passes in the final minute and half of the game.

Conversely, I managed to have Marvin Harrison, Kevin Walter and Visanthe Shiancoe combine for a grand total of 2 points.  How in the world can Marvin Harrison have only 22 yards receiving against the Lions?  What kind of weird, twisted world are we living in?  Along the same lines, how can Walter only have 8 yards receiving while his teammate has 207?  
I decided to sit Berrian this week, against my gut, and he ends up with 41 yards receiving because of a 41 yard TD reception, and returns a punt for a TD as well.  While his 16 points would have made the game a lot closer, it wouldn’t have been enough to pull out the win.  And my RB’s?  They had decent games, but nothing like the 20 and 30 point performances they have been putting up lately.  Jones and Williams had 13 and 14 points respectively, but not enough help from the rest of the team.
Bottom line: 97-63 final.  Watch out third place game, here I come!
