No Monday night lead ever feels safe, even when you are up by 49 points (standard scoring), going against only Bengals WR Terrell Owens. It’s kind of like when Skylab was falling. Sure you were pretty confident that a piece was not going to come busting through the roof of your bedroom ceiling. Yet, you still pulled your Rams sleeping blanket over your covers for some extra padding just in case.
What, that was just me?
Needless to say that Owens did not come close (28 points) to closing the gap. And his huge night, that was all for naught for my pal Frank H., was more a punch in the gut than anything else.
A couple of NFL.com users had a couple of bad nights, and shared their stories @nflfantasy.
@Artysmokes needed a big night from Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger, but had to be bummed when Antwaan Randle El tossed a touchdown bomb to Mike Wallace. Isn’t that the worst?
He obviously was not alone. How many of you needed another Big Ben touchdown toss? That is a tough way to go down.
But our grand-prize winner goes to @kristiniverson who lost to her boyfriend and had her five-game winning streak snapped.
So we know you have your stories. Trust me, it will feel better when you get it out. This is your chance to vent.
Take a seat on the couch, the doctor is in.
