Has anyone ever attempted a H2H type football league? Not as many cats as a 5x5 obviously, but you could have a few like rush yards, rec yards, pass yards, TDs, etc. Might make things a little less one sided and luck driven.

I won the championship. B-) Wasn't for any money, but Cafe bragging rights are always nice. :-D Not that I had much doubt going in to the game. I was playing GJG in the championship game and we all know that Canadians don't know much about football. I mean had it been fantasy curling or something then maybe I would have been scared... ;-) :-D

Anyway, it was a pretty darn good game. ;-D

Hindsight is 20/20. It's easy for me to call be pissed now because it seems so "obvious" to start Garrard. But I figured I'd take the safe route and play Kitna at home...it made sense to me at the time, and Kitna is the reason I got as far as I did.

I think I would've done the same thing. Both were playing against bad pass defenses, but Kitna and the Lions are so pass happy, it's hard to pass on him.

I'm like some of the previous posters - i don't have anything to vent about, just good luck.

Last night won me two championships. I needed 18 out of SD D. Nailed that.

The next one was a LOT trickier. I was up by one with Chris Chambers. My opponent had Cutler and Brandon Marshall. I sent him a semi-congratulatory message saying "it doesn't look good." Little did I know how sucky the Broncs would be.

One of my leagues has a four team playoff during week 16&17. I missed the fourth spot by five points and this past week I lost to the team that went 1-13 in the consolation bracket. :-C
