Your Week Seventeen Leader

And winning the crown in the final week of the regular season was...



Funny thing is I was all set to ALSO hand over the overall title to 1Bigg_ER after he edged me out by 40 points but it turns out that the fun continues into the playoffs!!!

So make sure you sign in and make your picks because there is still time to make a push for 1st place.

Good luck to everyone!

Everyone but 1Bigg_ER that is. I wish only the worst things in life to that guy LOL

Happy New Years!!!!

Ok so maybe I'm a few days late with this.

But at least I won't have any Bucs posts up any time soon either!

Wait, that didn't come out right.

So look it, I figured I wouldn't have a Bull Rush or TGTBTU post up for the Seahawks game and if you paid attention closely I said I wouldn't be posting for a week or so in my last post. But I didn't realize at that time that I also wouldn't be able to post on the Saints game either. I didn't see much of the Seahawks game any way but I did catch most of the Saints game (great game by the way) but I wasn't able to tape either unfortunately. And I know my limitations, there is no way in hell I could do a write up based solely on what I saw one time as it was happening with very few replays. Sometimes life just gets in the way and this is one of those times.

So I apologize for that, but I want to thank all of the folks who have been reading my blogs all year and especially those who participated in the fantasy football pick em league as well. I probably would have blogged about the Bucs this year no matter what but having people appreciate my work definitely gave me added motivation each week to git er done.

As for what's next, I'll probably do a post mortem on the season as a whole in the coming weeks and I'll also probably do individual breakdowns on each member just like I did last year as we head into the off season. At the same time I have felt the pull of the coaching profession once again and I have decided to test the waters to see what opportunities may arise. Therefore I can't promise that blogging will be regular but when I blog it will probably be substantive and worth your time. Maybe something will happen, maybe I'll still be blogging the Bucs next year, who knows. But I just ask that you bear with me for awhile until something happens....or doesn't.

I would be remiss if I didn't shout out the Bucs for doing what most folk, including even myself, didn't think they could do and that was get to 10 wins. The turnaround this season was truly amazing and if it didn't give you reason to be hopeful and excited about next year you're either dead or not a real Bucs fan. What those coaches and players accomplished despite all the injuries and the suspension of one of their best players can not be over stated. That we didn't have a single Pro Bowler is instructive on how much respect there still is out there to be earned though. Another year like this one and I don't think that will ever be a problem again.

Again I hope everyone had a happy holidays and I'll have at least one more post up this week crowning the champion of the fantasy football league.
