How’s it going fantasy footballers!
As we head into December two things are for sure: weather gets much colder outside and football teams (both NCAAF and NFL) pull into desperation mode. For college, bowl season is right around the corner and teams will do anything to make sure they are ranked well enough to secure a spot in a lucrative bowl. You have Bama which will be hoping OK State does not do so well against Oklahoma so the Cowboys do not have a shot at jumping them in BCS rankings. But this team did not allow a ranked Auburn team to score a single offensive point. You have V.Tech which is hoping they can move up or atleast stay the same to secure a BCS bowl. Stanford, Oregon, Wisconsin, Houston, Michigan State, and even Michigan are crossing their fingers hoping pollers and the computers are generous enough to allow them to have a legit shot at some BCS bowl. With LSU perfect again in the BCS ranking, it is hard to think the Tigers are not going to the big game even when they lose to the Bulldogs (note: key word is lose). In the NFL you have the Packers which are still undefeated. But are they really playing lights out football? Not really. Yeah Rodgers is stunning at QB but as a team, they need to improve to remain undefeated. This is why I do not think the Packers will remain undefeated. Desperation. If you clinch your conference by Week 15, why would you even take a risk of any injuries that late into the season, especially when you are playing your last two games of the season against teams that will be trying and fighting tooth and nail to get a spot in the playoffs. At home in Wisconsin. If the teams dont make you reconsider, than the weather will. Snow, ice, etc will increase your shot of injuring Rodgers on a scramble, or Woodson on a interception. It is too risky if you are trying to make another shot at the playoffs. You know who doesnt have much of a shot to go anywhere? The Giants. Did you see them play last night? Jets of the NFC. Ironic how they play the same football (losing) and are big rivals in their own towns. They should just hug it out, make one team, and do what they do best: command media attention and whiff in the national spotlight. Ouch!
