Vindication BABY!

I have done it!  I have made the playoffs.  I won the last 3 weeks to finish 7 - 6 and get the 5th seed in the playoffs.  It was a case of turnabout is fairplay after all the close call loses I took this year I managed to win these last 3 weeks by a total of 8.5 pts.  Week 11 I won by 5.3 pts, week 12 I won by 0.2 pts (whew) and this past week I won by exactly 3 pts.  I had a 45.3 point lead after the 4:15 slate of games and my opponent had 3 players YTP Owen Daniels & Kevin Walter on MNF & Bernard Berrian on Sunday night.  Well after Berrians magic act on Sunday night I stood 13.3 pts up and just knew that Daniels and Wlater were going to give him the win Monday but alas they could only muster 10.3 pts between them.  My luck is finally turning around and at the right time playoffs baby.  I am going for my 3rd straight championship in this league and could really use the $600 bucks for 1st place.  I really like my matchups this week also. 

Brett Favre & Thomas Jones @ 49ers (great)- QB & 1 RB

Marshawn Lynch vs. Phins (so so) - 2RB

Greg Jennings vs. Texans (great) - 1WR

Reggie Wayne vs. The Bungals (beyond great) - 2WR

Lendale White vs. Brownies Troop Dorsey (forget about it) - RB/WR

Heath Miller vs. The Cowgirls (?) wish Kellen Winslow wasn't made of glass.  - TE

Mason Crosby vs Texans (good) - K

Eagles Def/ST @ New York (football) Giants (not so good) heres to the return of Eli 3 years ago. - DST

It seems like every time I listen to the experts here on CBS I get creamed in my matchup that week thus setting me up the next week to ignore their advice and still get creamed because this time they were friggin RIGHT!  I am so frustrated with this season thanks to this vicious cycle that I have all but given up hope on making the playoffs in my league.  However my team is so strong that even with my lineup insecureties & 2nd guessing this season I have still managed to pull out some wins and sit precariously close to the cut off for the playoffs.  If I win out and 2 other teams each lose 1 game I hold all tie breakers over both as I have scored a ton more points and bench points as well as head to head meetings.  So this my friends is a lesson in trust your 1st instinct unless injuries, suspension or other extreme circumstances require you to go away from your initial gut feeling.  This way you have only your self to blame and you won't constantly  think what if.  I would also like to give a big shout out to Jamie Eisenberg and Dave Richard for there assistance in completely mucking up an other wise great Fantasy Football season.  Don't agree with me than just take a look at this lineup and you tell me how I am not undefeated or at least close to it.

QB's Brett Favre, Kurt Warner, Trent Edwards and lately Brady Quinn dropped Trent Edwards

RB's Marshawn Lynch, Thomas Jones, LenDale White, Tim Hightower, Felix Jones, Ladell Betts

WR's Reggie Wayne, Greg Jennings, Santana Moss, Steve Breaston, Bobby Engram, Ted Ginn Jr.

TE's Kellen Winslow Jr.& Bo Scaife

K's Mason Crosby & Shawn Suisham

DST's Philadelphia Eagles & Arizona Cardinals 

I may be wrong but I thought I had a great draft.  Only different players were Carson Palmer dropped picked up Trent Edwards

dropped Nate Burleson and picked up Steve Breaston
