    If it makes you feel better, Hopkins not doing shit is killing me in my other finals.

    I'm gonna need another miracle like I had last year to beat Clock. I think you'll have a lot of people sitting

    Thanks! Didn't think it was going to happen until jujus random pointless drive at the end. 4th year in a row through a lot of sheer dumb luck in the finals. Definitely didn't deserve to win this year.

    I'm pooped in redraft. More surprisingly less pooped in dynasty. Looks like my rubbish pick swap rights are looking less stupid.

    This team won the championship. Completely on the back of Gurley's untouchable playoff run. Also got a solid 20 points from Antonio Gates in the final, which was a pleasant throwback.

    Did not expect to be able to recover after OBJ went down, so I'm really pleased. It helps to have your RB1 and RB2 score like 160 points combined in weeks 15 and 16.

    Damn no Hopkins this week is really going to hurt my other finals.

    Side note can we change playoffs next year to not have week 17 in the finals? Maybe throw in a bye week instead and do one week matchups or something.

    I prefer a 6 person playoff starting in week 14. Top 2 seeds get a bye, finals are week 16 and that's it.

    Watching the Music City Bowl. Honest-to-God the worst officiating I've ever seen.

    Victory!

    I'd like to thank all my trade partners and the players I took chances on that panned out (looking at you Thielen and Lewis).

    GG Monkey, unlucky showing by your team. Rematch in next years finals?

    Cheers Rah! I don't know if my team will make it again. @silentclock's absurdly unlucky injury run this year says all we need to say - I just need to draft well and thank god I have more than one pick this year

    (AND CAN JOHN ROSS PLAY NOW THAT MARV IS GONE!!)

    A friend of mine just sent me that bracket and I just moved around the logos in paint.

    Well while my title defense in redraft fell short, 3rd isn't a bad consolation (outscoring both finals teams in the process, lol)

    I like everything but your Super Bowl result. Wish I could have that much faith in my Saints right now, personally. I'm having a hard time getting over that bed-shitting against a 4-11 Bucs team.

    Pats over Rams. A callback to the pats first Lombardi. Not to mention it'll fit the pattern of two straight, one miss, and one win from the start only in reverse.
