Three Losers & a Douchebag

Each Monday, I will write a post entitled “Three Losers & a Douchebag”, where I will identify “Three Losers” — guys who were likely in your starting lineup and should have played well but failed miserably — and “a Douchebag” — a guy who should not have played well but did (and was likely either on your bench or on your opponent’s starting roster, adding to the pain and annoyance). It has very little (read: absolutely zero) relevance to what may or may not happen next week. Mostly it is just my way of venting.

Three Losers

1. QB Matt Schaub (HOU): I know NYJ has a solid defense. But all you could muster is 166 yards passing, 0 TDs and 1 INT? Painful. Even QB Marc Bulger outscored you in standard leagues. Which is even more painful.

2.WR Andre Johnson (HOU): I suppose it is not surprising to see Johnson on this list considering the day Schaub had. But people obviously expected more from Johnson, who was consistently drafted as a top-3 WR. Unfortunately, he started the season with a 4-catch, 35 yard performance. Which means you would have been better off with WR Kelley Washington (BAL) or WR Bryant Johnson (DET) in your lineup. Ouch.

3. WR Steve Smith (CAR): Smith had 3 catches for 21 yards. Most — okay, all — of this can be blamed on QB Jake Delhomme, who looked awful. Smith did garner 13 looks. But 3 catches and 21 yards is not what people expected out of Smith when they took him as high as they did. Hopefully Delhomme gets his act together, or it is going to be a long season (mostly involving blocking) for Smith.

And a Douchebag

WR Brandon Stokley (DEN): Seriously — WTF? You had zero catches until the pass intended for WR Brandon Marshall was tipped and miraculously landed in your hands. Then you took the ball and ran for a TD, giving you 1 catch for 87 yards and a TD on the day. Which is worth 14.7 points. You went from zero to 14.7 points in a matter of seconds. And the play won DEN the game. There are more than a few games out there who’s outcome was determined by this unbelievable turn of events.
