Magill FFL: Shocker! Omeda is Out

12/16/14
 
By Ken Magill
 
After romping through the league and looking pretty much unbeatable all year, Omeda’s Oh My Omeda suffered an @ss kicking this week at the hands of Fluent’s Fluent in Kicking @ss, 102.6 to 160.08.
 
Sadly for Omeda, that means no Lebanon bologna football for them this year. They are done.
 
One reason for the loss is Omeda’s quarterback, Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers, had one of the worst performances of his career against the Buffalo Bills this week, completing 17 of 42 passes for 185 yards and two interceptions.
 
Only twice this year has Rodgers’ quarterback rating dipped slightly below 100. His quarterback rating this week was 34.3.
 
This is the second week in a row the Bills’ defense has given a top-rated quarterback fits—last week was Denver’s Peyton Manning playing for Responsys—and helped knock a top fantasy team out of the Magill Report playoffs.
 
Ouch. Shooting pain in my left arm. Profuse sweating. Nausea. I’m writing positive things about my lifelong team the Buffalo Bills. That’s okay. They’ve got two games left to get their asses stomped and make me feel at home again.
 
As a result of the win against Omeda, Fluent is in the championship. Fluent is co-managed by two guys who have won Magill Report Fantasy Football championships in the past for other companies—Jordan Cohen and Jarett Lewis.
 
Meanwhile, The Net Atlantic Storm knocked team Yesmail out of the playoffs by beating them 177.4 to 150.44.
 
Net Atlantic now faces Fluent in the championship.
 
Despite having put up the most points in the league this week, Net Atlantic is considered the underdog against Fluent next week by Yahoo! projections.
 
Yahoo! gets fantasy football projections wrong a lot, however.
 
Also, both companies in this year’s championship are within reasonable commuting distance of Magill Report world headquarters in Central Valley, NY.
 
As a result, I will deliver the championship spoils personally to this year’s champion.
 
At stake are a beautiful engraved crystal trophy from Crown Awards and a regulation-sized Lebanon bologna football from Dietrich’s Meats in Krumsville, PA. Mmmm. Mmm.

Thanks again for allowing us to play in your league again this year Ken! This was one of the best fantasy years I've had in the regular season.. but sadly We're Done! On a side note.. At least I don't have to root for the Packers anymore this season. As a long time Bears fan (I know we're bad) it was very hard watching football with my friends and acting like I was not happy every time Rogers had a good game. I just told them yesterday that Rogers was my QB this year in FFB and that I've been secretly rooting for the Packers all season. Good luck to the remaining teams. I'm definitely going to miss out on that bologna football! Mario
