|Yep, Jordan knows what's at stake.|
So how did we get to this year's YOOOOOOGE matchup of Damman Vs. Randolph? Well, Damman was the regular season champ and dispatched Mike Vick last week with easily his most complete week of the season. Randolph knocked out his bitter rival, G$, with the help of Timothy Tebow and an assortment of Chiefs. I still think that my team is better than both of these guys but whatever, I'm in the consolation for a reason (I'm too good!).
Here is what is interesting (to me at least). The G$FL is in it's 8th year. Randolph won the first two years and lost in the SB (TO ME!) in year three. Damman is on a wild streak as he has made the SB the last FIVE years now and has brought the crown home the last two years. Damman is going for a 3peat. Randolph is going for #3. You can cut the tension with a samurai sword! Let's look at the rosters and pick a favorite (it won't be Damman because he talks too much shit about his "dominance"). And Uncle G$ hates that.
QB - Matt Schaub. Good choice since Cassel could only play a half.
RB - Ray Rice and Rashad Jennings. Rice is fucking terrible but Jennings was a saavy waiver wire pick-up this week although Trent Edwards will definitely slow him down.
WR - Greg Jennings, Kenny Britt, Johnny Knox. He got hurt by Hakeem Nicks' toe. I would probably start James Jones over Knox as I KNOW that the Packers are playing the whole game but then again, it's putting a lot of faith in the Pack passing game.
TE - Jacob Tamme. Gates being hurt hurts and Tamme is showing more each week that he sucks.
FLEX - Ben Jarvus Green-Ellis. I think that he changes this. I would. The Pats are playing for nothing. Personally, I would use Ronnie Brown here and hope to Christ that he's facing the Pats back-ups come the second half.
Definitely a solid team when healthy but out of all of his runs the last 5 years, this team is the worst.
QB - Tim Tebow. He could go with Cutler or Fitzpatrick but I like the Jesus start. The Broncos are always losing so you get a lot of garbage touchdowns. And it's always nice to have God on your side.
RB - Jamaal Charles, LaGarrette Blount. I would roll the dice with Charles. He's too good not to. Blount has been a stud the second half and the Saints aren't really playing for anything since the Falcons aren't going to lose to Carolina.
WR - Dwayne Bowe, Larry Fitzgerald, TB Mike Williams. This will change if Andre Johnson plays who neutralizes Damman's QB (HUGE difference maker).
TE - Tony Gonzalez. They have to win. The Panthers suck. He'll probably score.
FLEX - Ryan Torain. No team should ever start a Redskin. Knowing what usually happens when the Skins and Giants play, Brandon Jacobs would be a better start in my opinion. He has Forte and Moreno, too, but neither of those guys are very good plays this weekend.
This fucker drafted and played the waiver wire PERFECTLY this season when it came to his backfield and receiving corps.
In the end, this is what I look at to decide the league:
Randolph has the better team by far but Damman has been there before. If Tebow can play Schaub to even, Damman will probably not win. Plus, Randolph knows Kevin Kurgis and has done business with him. Damman does not know Kevin Kurgis although I bet KK would have been all over the case the time that Damman was drunkenly jaywalking and got hit by a car.
Randolph wins. And in the voice of Kevin Kurgis, "no one gets paid if Damman wins". Be safe out there, enjoy the bowl games, and I'll see you Monday with a weeklong preview of the Godaddy.com Bowl.
