The Life

On Dilfer and Blitzes
ESPN The Magazine

'Twas the night before FFL semis, And all through the
land, Every nimrod was crying: "Gamer, give us a hand!"

With just two weeks left, let's examine the wars,
And pick out some names that will get you high scores:

In Week 16, Muhsin Muhammad stands tall
'Gainst a lame Chargers D, give him the damn ball!

Fred Taylor's a no-brainer -- this guy is on fire,
He's got the pitiful Bungles, his game will go higher.

Oakland faces a Seahawks D that ranks darn near last,
So start Tyrone Wheatley, who torched them in games past.

On to Week 17, if your luck so permits,
When contenders play and all also-rans sit.

In N'awlins they await the return of Saint Rick,
And hosting the Rams, he's my pick to click.

Arizona lets in two rush scores per game,
On this day, those scores bear Stephen Davis' name.

Be sure to start Del Greco, George or McNair,
And you may win it all on the last day of the year!

Now I wish you the best, hope your team doesn't suck,
Merry Christmas to all, and to all, well ... Good luck!
