HWC Football Week 10 Recap

Hey! The recap is once again here at GOP and College, and once again, it was another W for the Chumps. The league took a bit of a shake-up this week as many of the top teams fell to giant killers. Let's take a look shall we?

Gumbo - 35
Hot Wing Chump-ions - 69
Gumbo has had Trent Green as his starting QB ever since the beginning of the season. If I were more oblivious than I am, I might actually think that Gumbo updates his team. But the fact is that if he has checked his team even once this season, I would be amazed. Gumbo received 4 goose eggs this week, 3 of them were from people who actually were previously announced as not playing. Among the players on the bench for Gumbo are Marion Barber from Dallas, Matt Leinart and Dominic Rhodes. The long slide backwards keeps going for Gumbo. And at 34 points, this game was Week 10's Blowout of the Week!
MVP: Steve McNair - Steve stuck it to the Titans, as I expected racking up 373 yards, and 3 scores. But he still threw 2 picks and was sacked once for a total of21 points.
Goat: Gumbo - C'mon man. This is just pitiful.

Buck Turgidson - 71
fmragtop's spewers - 45
Poor fm. There was nothing he could do to prevent Buck from rolling over him...except play Carson Palmer over Gavid Garrard. The extra 26 points would have at least tied the game, and playing Joe Nedney over Mike Vanderjagt would have given fm a much needed win. Instead, Garrard threw 4 interceptions agianst THE TEXANS! Did he yell to the Texan corners, "Comin' to you!?"
MVP: Rex Grossman - 246 yards, 3 TD's but with 1 pick, and 2 sacks for 16 points.
Goat: David Garrard - 214 yards, 4 interceptions and 2 sacks, -6 points

webcats - 49
I hate Hillary - 45
Anytime you face off against LaDanian Tomlinson, you'd better have your A-Game. Unfortunately for IHH, that was not the case. Marc Bulger didn't throw any TD's this week, something that Rams fans haven't seen in ages. The thought of a Rams game without a pass to the endzone is as foriegn as a Muslim extremist welcoming a Jew into Mecca. I just wish LT would lay off the TD fever, and give some to my tight end, Antinio Gates.
MVP: LaDanian Tomlinson - 104 yards, 4 TD's, for 31 points. Was there any doubt?
Goat: Marc Bulger - 215 yards, 0 TD's, 1 pick, and 4 sacks for -6 points.

Tax Dodgers - 43
RFTR - 64
This was an upset to set all of them by. Since when did Big Ben actually have a good game? And when was the last tiem Randy moss only have 8 yards of offense? Moss has only 452 yards of passes this season, and 3 of the 4 Raider passing TDs. What's even worse is that's 200 yards over the next best reciever. I was wanting RFTR to lose this week since that would FINALLY vault my Chumps out of last place, but it was not to be.
MVP: Ben Roethlisberger - 264 yards, 3 TD's, 0 picks, and 2 sacks for 19 points
Goat: Randy Moss - 8 Yards. That's it. 0 points.

San Jose Arrowheads - 76
The Ball Sackers - 60
That sucked. I was rooting for Wyatt to upset the top seed, but it wasn't to be this time. The Sackers went 5-0 and have been 1-4 since then, averaging only 55 ppg instead of the 70 ppg he was having right out of the gun. But the Arrowheads in general just out starred the Sackers. With 4 players making up 59 of Arrowhead's 76 points, it's hard to overcome that.
MVP: Willie Parker - 213 yards, 2 TD's, 24 points
Goat: Jon Kitna - Slated to have a rocking day vs the wreched 49ers, but instead only 202 yards, 1 score, a pick, 3 sacks and a fumble for 1 point.

Rose Hill Reddogs - 55
The Columbia CRUNCH - 44
If Safety Man was still working at the plant, the heckling from The Dog would never end. Sadly, this is only the second time this season the Dogs have scored more than 50 points. The last game was in Week 6 vs. Gumbo where the dogs lost 64-78. If it weren't for Chad Johnson, Reddogs would have been the laughing stock of this week's games, but instead, he pulls out a nice W.
MVP: Chad Johnson - 260 yards and 2 scores, 27 points.
Goat: Larry Johnson - Yes, I'm putting him as the Goat. Only 75 yards and one score against THE DOLPHINS??!! 9 points.
Week 10 Rewards!

Best Come From Behind
Gridiron Wookies - 74
Robots Eat Babies - 63
This game came down to the wire, but with Wookies only trailing by 2, and Steve Smith coming into MNF vs. the Bucs, it looked pretty grim for the Robots. Sure enough, Smith came through. With a stunning 149 yards and a TD, Smith put the game away for the Wookies.
MVP: Steve Smith - Heck of a game gives the win to the Wookies
Goat: Peyton Manning - Only 236 yards and one score vs. Buffalo? Were you hung over?

Clash of the Weinies
Hector Vex O-Trons - 44
bRight & Early - 32
If this game is any type of preview for next week's match b/w myself and Vex, I'll take it. Both teams had a lousy performance with one or two star players. This game makes it easy for me to choose the MVP, but who out of all of the losers gets the Goat award?
MVP: Donald Driver - 191 yards and a score, 17 points
Goat: Alex Smith - 136 yards, 3 sacks and a fumble, -6 points. Eww.

Now that that's done, let's look at our updated standings and matchups for this week.
