And so it begins, again 

Our fantasy football entry in the Webloggers league makes the playoffs again. That's not a big deal, but I loved being the object of this post by d-42. He beat me even though I played every correct player this week, thanks mainly to the Cleveland Browns quitting and giving up 22 points to the Bills defense. (Hugh, you've got some 'splainin' to do.) I've lost two in a row now with performances that were only so-so.

For those who follow these things: The commissioner is Sean at The American Mind (he's out of the playoffs) and Steve Taylor's Polibloggers clinched the last spot away from Josh to earn the right to play James Joyner's regular-season champion Rodeo Clowns. The Scholars play Kevin Holtsberry's Collected Miscellany in the other semifinal.

We roared back to win the league last year after starting 1-3, and we hope the late rash of injuries to stars Randy Moss, Thomas Jones, Chris Brown and David Givens can be overcome. I'm more concerned that my tight ends (McMike, DGraham) will reappear in the nick of time.
