Duck Duck Goose!

I'm looking to cook Team Duckgirl's goose here in the first round of the playoffs, although I don't think it will be as easy this time around as it was the first time during the regular season when I cooked her goose 85-21. As of this morning, I'm projected by the folks at Yahoo to beat her 85-84.

The first time, she actually forget to field a team, not playing Tony Romo or DeAngelo Williams aka DWillIII. This time, both are in the lineup, plus Mike Sims Walker, who starts tonight vs. the Colts. But I counter her with Aaron Rodgers, who has been solid all year, and DeSean Jackson, aka my own D-abbreviated player, DJax, who is coming back from a concussion and giving other teams' cornerbacks coronaries in the process. Plus I have my secret/not-so-secret weapon now in Quinton Ganther:

Sure, it was the Oakland Raiders that Ganther burned for two touchdowns, and not the New York Giants, but if there's one thing I've learned in fantasy football, it's that you gotta to have faith.

I even have faith in Randy Moss (who admittedly I flipped off again in my last post), because if there is a second thing I've learned about fantasy football, it's forgiveness (just like I hope you'll "forgive me" for using this video of eye candy).

After all, The Dude did bounce back from his earlier bad games this season. After putting up two points against the Jets (and Revis) in Week 2, he did return in Week 3 with 16 the following week against the Falcons, and then after putting up three points against Denver in Week 5, he did bounce back in Week 6 with 35 points.

And, of course, if there are third and fourth things I've learned about fantasy football (to steal a page from Chris Cameron's book), it's "Never get involved in a land war in Asia" and "Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line."

On second thought, after seeing the video and remembering the quotes in context, I'm hoping Allison (Duckgirl) is Sicilian.

Speaking of forgiveness, on a serious note, our condolences to the family and friends of Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chris Henry, who passed away this morning.

Commenting on my own post...because I don't like looking at the bottom of it and seeing 0 comments.

I know. Sad.
