Oh ye fickle Football Gods. I got a little full of myself, for sure. Thinking I was the King of pigskin prognostication and all that. I laughed in the face of the Gods, believing I had surpassed their tricks and tomfoolery.
Friends, consider me level-set.
Not only did I endure a miserable 9-7 week but my fantasy team completed it's Raheem-like death spiral out of the playoffs. No, the Supreme Daleks (look it up, jocks) will not be playing for a championship this year and I am definitely no Jimmy the Greek (look it up, young uns).
After my big heapin' helpin' of humble pie, I'll reflect on my disappointing season and hope to rebound this week.
Oh my gods...I just realized - I'm MARK SANCHEZ! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Then again, having his money and GQ looks wouldn't be half bad, but I digress.
Anyway, since I'm doing my own reflecting on where it all went wrong, let's look at this year's most disappointing for each NFL team as we wade through the cess pool known as my pick selections for Week 14.
By the by, an editors note: it seems the rest of my competitors have put that tie between the Rams and 49ers a few weeks back in the loss column of their picks - I mean, technically it's true - no one forecasted a tie in that game unless they have Marty McFly's book of sports results. I will comply with the prevailing standard.
Last Week: 9-7 Upset Special: 0 for 1
Season: 113-80 58% Upset Specials: 8-27 23%
Broncos 40, Raiders 3 - The Donkeys have to be a bit disappointed that their running game hasn't been very effective this season while the Raiders I'd say are disappointed with everyone on the roster and coaching staff. Except Marcel Reece...he's beast.
Ravens 30, Redskins 24 - The Ravens are disappointed in their battered defense while the Redskins also are disappointed about the defense. Come to think of it, I think I lowballed the score at 23-13. Revising.
Bengals 23, Cowboys 13 - I'm not a big fan of the Cowboys - I don't think they're a very good team and that they're propped up as one by the media. With that, the Cowboys have disappointed the media in all facets of their game. Cincinnati has to be disappointed in their mid-season swoon that included losses to Cleveland and Miami.
Rams 16, Bills 13 - The Bills have to be disappointed they didn't take the next step this season. The Rams are disappointed Sam Bradford hasn't lived up to the billing as of yet. 22nd ranked QB in the NFL for the former number one overall pick of the 2010 draft?
Falcons 24, Panthers 13 - The Falcons are disappointed they may go 15-1 and still no one will believe their legit. Carolina has to be disappointed in Cam. Like me, he got too big for his britches and had to be level-set by the rest of the NFL.
Jets 10, Jaguars 7 - I'm disappointed anyone has to watch this game. Jets - Sanchez. Jacksonville - Tebow. As in he's not playing there and he won't be playing this week for New York....or will he?
Upset Special: Vikings 23, Bears 13 - The Vikes are disappointed Christian Ponder hasn't developed as rapidly as some other young NFL QBs. The Bears are disappointed that injuries could take their toll again this season.
49ers 20, Dolphins 10 - The 49ers have to be disappointed they've gotten themselves into a quarterback controversy. The Dolphins are disappointed that they have few playmakers on their offense.
Seahawks 24, Cardinals 13 - The Seahawks are disappointed they likely have to go the rest of the season without their two starting CBs. The Cardinals are disappointed they spent a lot of money and still have no quarterback.
Packers 26, Lions 20 - The Pack are still disappointed the Scab Refs stole a game and have them fighting for a division title. The Lions are disappointed they couldn't sustain their success from 2011.
