Hot Wing Recap: Week 11

It's Week 11 in the Hot Wing Conspiracy Fantasy Football League. Out of 16 teams, every team is still in the playoff hunt. Wait, this just in, the Hot Wing Chump-ions have been mathematically eliminated from the playoffs. The 2005 Hot Wing Champions are this year's version of the Florida Marlins. A true riches to rags story.

The Ball Sackers - 39
Robots Eat Babies - 46
I don't know who to feel sorry for more: Eagles fans, Donovan McNabb, or Fantasy football owners who had Donovan McNabb on their team. Either way, the Eagles got smoked by the Titans this past weekend and had the star of so many Campbells Chunky Soup ads go down for the season. Sorry, Tony Romo is no longer on the waiver wire.
MVP - Donovan McNabb's injured leg.
Goat - Kevin Jones RB - (4 Rushes, 8 Yards)

Gridiron Wookies - 59
bRight & Early - 47

GW got a poor performance from Romo, but Jamal Lewis got some insane points (22) to win his 7th game against only four losses.
MVP - Jamal Lewis RB - 22 Points (3 TDs)
Goat - Tony Romo QB - -2 Points (1 Sack, 1 Fumble, 1 INT)

Hector Vex O-Trons - 44
Hot Wing Chump-ion - 36
The Chumpions magic number is 1. That is, if they lose one more game the league's cellar will be theirs. The worst team in fantasy football lost again this week, while Hector stayed in the playoff hunt.
MVP - Josh Scobee K - 15 Points (4/4 FG, 2/2 PAT)
Goat - QBs - Steve McNair - 2 Points / Charlie Frye -7 Points

Gumbo - 30
fmragtops' spewers - 49

Gumbo is doing pretty well considering he hasn't changed his lineup in a long time. He would have come up with another win if it was not for the Chicago Bears Defense.
MVP - Chicago DEF - 16 Points (2 Sacks, 2 Ints)
Goat - Trent Green QB - -2 Points (1 Fumble, 2 Sacks)

Buck Turgidson - 42
I hate Hillary - 10

Irony is a sick bitch. IHH's 10 point turd is the lowest point total since Buck's team lost 39-2 in Week 6. This puts him tied with webcats (who also scored only 10 points in Week 5) as the second biggest weekly losers. If you take Mark Bulger out of the picture, the score would have been a more respectable 24-42.
MVP - Mark Bulger QB - -14 Points (1 Int, 5 Sacks)
Goat - Mark Bulger QB - -14 Points (1 Int, 5 Sacks)

webcats - 49
RFTR - 58

The Shortest Name Bowl winner is RFTR. If he ever checks his team, he would see that his TE is pumping gas at an BP in Paramus.
MVP - LaDainian Tomlinson RB - 32 Points (4 TDs, 105 YDs Rushing)
Goat - Brad Johnson QB - -3 Points (1 Int, 3 Sacks, 1 Fumble)

San Jose Arrowheads - 50
The Columbia CRUNCH - 90

San Jose got smoked, which does not matter because they are the first team to clinch a playoff berth at 9-2. With Brett Favre at the helm, San Jose could see some rocky roads ahead and I'm not talking about ice cream. TCC is 8-3 and faces the formidable Robots Eat Babies next week.
CoMVP - Tom Brady QB - 24 Points (4 TDs, 244 YDs Passing)
CoMVP - Larry Johnson RB - 21 Points (2 TDs, 154 YDs Rushing)
Goat - Brett Favre QB - -1 Point (1 Sack, 73 YDs Passing)

Tax Dodgers - 61
Rose Hill Reddogs - 67

The 4-7 RedDogs eked out a win against the 7-3 Taxers. The win keeps RHR two wins ahead of the Chumpions for the cellar. The final 3 games for RHR are against teams with a combined record of 21-12 so they still have a shot at the cellar, here are the scenarios for that to happen:
1) RHR loses all 3 games and ends up with a 4-10 record AND Hot Wing Chumpions win at least two of their final games
2) Hot Wing Chumps loses 1 of 3 games and end up with a 4-9-1 record AND RHR loses 2 games and ties one.
MVP - Chad Johnson - WR - 29 Points (190 YDs Receiving, 3 TDs)
Goat - Randy Moss - WR - 0 Points (1 Catch, 8 Yards)
