Thank you Deion Branch, Wes Welker and Tom Brady. Because of you, I’ll be walking like a toy soldier for the rest of this week.
I lost the bet, so I sang my ballad at BWI (see last week’s column* for details). Because my lungs bellow like Pavarotti, I received a colonoscopy on the house from those good folks, the Transportation Security Administration! I’m no longer full of you know what! Go, me! Mario Manningham still did better than all the other wide receivers, and Bernard Berrian.
Let’s compare the stats, shall we?
Mario Manningham 61 yds, 1 TD vs. Terrell Owens 17 yds
Mario Manningham 61 yds, 1 TD vs. Steve Johnson 68 yds
Mario Manningham 61 yds, 1 TD vs. Dez Bryant 0 yds
Mario Manningham 61 yds, 1 TD vs. Reggie Wayne 42 yds
Mario Manningham 61 yds, 1 TD vs. Branch/Welker 90+ yds, two TDs apiece (doh!)
Mario is a WR2 start this week playing at home against the Redskins, but I can’t showcase him every week or this column would get as predictable as weekly touchdown dances from Dwayne Bowe.
So for Week 13, who will grab the mic on amateur night at Jackpot’s? Stay tuned for the next big thing on Bleacher Report.

About Me, Wendell "Papa Smurf" Gaymon
I’m not really a little blue hairless half naked leprechaun who lives in a decked out mushroom. I’m an average Joe like you, who spends his eight hours of sleep obsessing over this game we call Fantasy Football. You’ll find I’m a bit off-kilter with my picks, but I think that’s how you win best, picking the best players with the best matchups.
