Well, I didn't surpass that 50 win total, stuck firm to that mark by losing my prediction for the Fantasy League Superbowl. It was a game that saw, as predicted, a ton of points scored, and solidified the fact that the best two teams duked it out for the 2011 title.
The streak has ended. No, not Repeal Obama's streak of losing to the eventual Super Bowl champ, but Blood & Thunder's previous 0-3 in title games.
Blood & Thunder outscored Repeal Obama 160-133 in the big game. He got great production from Matthew Stafford, Maurice Jones-Drew, Arian Foster, Reggie Bush and David Akers, while getting solid efforts by Jimmy Graham, Miles Austin, Josh Freeman, Stevie Johnson and the Cincinnati Defense.
What went wrong for Repeal Obama?
LaGarrette Blount's 1 fantasy point hurt bad, as did a basic no-show from Santana Moss. This, in combination with solid, yet below expected, performances from Matt Ryan, Phil Rivers, Mike Wallace and SF defense, really put a damper on the huge games put in by Jordy Nelson, Calvin Johnson and Kevin Smith.
Validation. That seems to be the chant in the Blood & Thunder locker room, as this victory cements this run of 4 straight super bowls with a Win. One win and all the losses are put into perspective.
Although the title game just concluded, 11 GM's are already thinking ahead to 2012, scouring over keeper possibilities and just simply looking forward to another year of Fantasy Football. As for the 12th team, well, he's just going to bask in this victory for a little longer before thinking of next year.
Thanks for following. Hope you all have a great New Years and start to 2012 and I'll see you all next August-September for the start of the 2012 campaign.
