That certainly was some championship performance, Michael Turner. Two points? Against a team that you normally dominate? Not championship material.
The blame should not rest entirely on your shoulders, Michael. You were doomed once the Monday Night Football announcing team started raving about the fact that you never fumble. Everybody got upset with that Jets special-teams coach who formed the wall on the sideline, but announcers jinxing your fantasy team is much more devastating.
And once the Falcons lined up at the 1-yard line, you wish you could get fantasy points for calling ,”Here comes the fumble … which never happens.”
Saints QB Drew Brees was not much better. He notched just under 12 points in your NFL.com basic scoring league. Matt Ryan, Roddy White, Marques Colston: You all are guilty of this, too.
I hope both teams fail to make the playoffs.
Thankfully, there is still one more game that will give us a chance to capture fantasy gold. But if any of the Saints or Falcons failed to deliver for you, then feel free to consider the comment section your therapy couch. You will feel better if you share.
And, who knows? If Michael Vick fails to deliver, I might just join you tomorrow.
