After 4 weeks of play, #PittaParty is sitting in 8th (!) place, with a record of 1-1-2. I’m shocked, to say the least.
One main source of pain has been the performance of Aaron Rodgers in Weeks 2 and 3. I can assure you that if he would have given me the 25-35 points that I expect weekly, I would probably be sitting on a 4-0 record.
My RB crew has also been letting me down, with Stephen Jackson my main source of disdain. Thank goodness someone dropped DeAngelo Williams and I picked him up on waivers, because I need whatever help I can get with Run DMC off on his Bye Week.
Not quite sure what is going on with Antonio Gates, but I am expecting a big week from him. He’s playing the Saints’ dreadful defense, which I hope leads to more targets.
I know that my team is better than 8th place. I am building my team for a marathon, not a sprint, and there is plenty of football left to play. I hope that the moves I have begun to make on the sly end up benefiting me in the end: Failure is not an option, ladies.
I can assure you this: I will not finish this season with more than two ties.
