Monday Nightmare: Counting on Eli

At some point, you have to feel like the “Monday Night Football” announcers were taunting those needing a big game from Eli Manning for fantasy purposes. Like they had to keep rubbing it in that drafting Eli was one of the worst decisions of the fantasy season.

Yeah, I got it.

Though I was smart enough to sit Eli in the NFL.com Experts League (take that Nick Bakay), I knew I needed a big game to overcome the computer that drafted Andrew Siciliano‘s team for him in our NFL Network League. After the first quarter (if that long), I had already switched to RAW to see what CM Punk was up to. Partly because of Eli, and partly because Hakeem Nicks had already won me another week in yet another league (I am carrying five this year).

But I do feel for those of you who had to sit through that game in agony, waiting for Eli to come through. Or maybe you needed a big game from Mario Manningham and you had to suffer the indignity of watching him fall on his face as he was racing for a sure touchdown — which is the kind of thing you would expect from Eli and not one of his receivers (that stuff is contagious). And really, you gave yourself a concussion on that?

Well, there is nothing I can say that will help you, but I will let you know that it feels better to get it out. Consider this one great big therapy couch, and the rest of us are here to help.

Let it out, you will feel better when you do.
