Sponsored Post: Just Keeps Getting Worse

Your weekly update on my travails in the Blogger Football League, sponsored by Procter & Gamble. For background, see this intro post.

My swagger from three weeks ago has withered. Two weeks ago, I got steamrolled. And last week, I got smoked again, this time by Diana from National Football Post. Brady stunk. Chris Johnson stunk. Miles Austin? Well, you saw what happened to Tony Romo. I'm in a post-hubris doom spiral.

So what happens this week? I'm facing another rising power, Jarod from Midwest Sports Fans, who is 5-2, riding a 2-game winning streak and the No. 2-ranked team in the league. I've got Brady, hopefully slicing up the Vikings; Chris Johnson (who knows?); LaDainian (back from the bye week!); and the 3-headed WR situation of Miles Austin (ugh); Kevin Walter (eh); and Malcom Floyd Michael Crabtree, live from London. I am not confident.

Consider that: I have gone from "I am SO winning this league" to "I am not confident."

I need a win. Badly. At this rate, they're going to strip me of my "swagger" label.

Check out P&G's Take It To The House page on Facebook. Be sure to look for the new contest where you predict the players who will have the top 5 rushing or receiving plays from scrimmage, and if you get them all, you win some insanely good prizes.

The P&G Blogger Fantasy League (BFL) is a group of 12 online sports folks competing on the fantasy platform for the chance to win a donation for a local charity, furnished by P&G. The NFL Entities have not offered or sponsored the sweepstakes in anyway.
