Let's see, how'd I do yesterday?
1) The Panthers are due for an offensive explosion with DeAngelo and Cam leading the way.
Result: Opposite. The one bit of fantasy enjoyment I got out of last night's game was that the guy who owns Cam Newton in my keeper league has been busting my stones about owning Mike Vick for years now. On the downside it'll take more than a slumping QB to shut that guy up.
2) Bench the defenses for this high scoring game.
Result: Pretty much opposite. I mean, you weren't going to start the Panthers D no matter what. Giants D? 3 picks, fumble recovery, 2 sacks in what was practically a shutout? Yeah, opposite.
3) Eli is unreliable and can't be counted on for back-to-back big games.
Result: This is trickier, Eli played a solid NFL game, but his fantasy numbers were fairly pedestrian, so not really opposite, but not really correct either.
4) Start Brandon LaFell and Victor Cruz.
Result: Opposite. Starting Andre Brown and Ramses Barden? Now that would have been brilliant. But since I thought Ramses Barden was an Iron Chef or something, it didn't occur to me to mention him. And who knew Ahmad Bradshaw could be replaced by just any ole guy you have hanging around the locker room?
Like I said, Mush City. I'd feel a little worse about cursing the Panthers with my bad karma if Carolina didn't play like a bunch of Pop Warner rejects getting whipped around their home field by an injury-riddled Giants team. Sheesh.
