Cumbee likes to talk a lot of trash, and five wins this week make it look like he deserves it. However, those five wins weren’t in dominating fashion especially given that he was the only player without a bye this week and had two undefeated teams. Sure he got wins out of all four of his NFC teams, but three of those were by a combined seven points. One of those was an undefeated Falcons team needing a 55-yard field goal with one second left to beat the Raiders!
Three of Cumbee’s wins came at the hands of Brian’s Brown Tea Party. And while Romo was Manning the bar in Brashaw’s convoluted team name, he didn’t seem to be manning the win column against my Ravens (who I may have to trade at this point; they were shaky before the injuries, and now this). His Colts also got rocked by Sanchez Time and the Jets. At least Brian was able to sweep a two-game set with Robyn, thanks to Peyton’s Monday Night Tebow performance.
Robyn’s Buccaneers got an early win over Cumbee’s Chiefs and balanced it out when her Dolphins squeaked out one over my Rams (a pair of really interesting teams to watch by the way), preventing a four-way tie in the NFC West and creating one in the AFC East.
The Win Bonus
Which brings us to the bragging Andrew Cumbee. He has talked so much trash about my Tennessee Titans this season. He’s even put them as the worst team in the NFL. And while he claims that things are different in primetime, I think he’s just making excuses for me drilling his first-pick Steelers.
And late Sunday afternoon I got this text:
Cumbee: “Boom. All my NFC teams win. And Bills and probably Texans.”
Me: “We shall see.”
Cumbee: “Pack is terrible this year. Too bad.”
Me: “Any given Sunday”
Cumbee, don’t mess with me in primetime, man. Speaking of which, I got wins over Prime’s past teams Dallas and San Francisco as well as a win with one of his former teams, Baltimore.
That win gave me a tie with Cumbee for the week victory, scoring each of us four points.

The Fan Bonus
Every other week fans are asked to decide a winner to a random (No Coast) Biased contest. The winner of that contest gets an additional four bonus points. So even though a player may have a rough week, the fans can keep them in the hunt by appreciating their savvy. This week’s Fan Bonus Contest requires the players kept in the spirit with Breast Cancer Awareness Month and suggested their favorite Disney Princesses. Vote for your favorite and spread the word. The turnout is getting bigger each week so every vote counts.
- Robyn: Belle is the most like me in personality. I’m a bookworm who doesn’t always fit in, and while my family is very important to me, I’d also love to have some freedom and adventure in my life. All I’m missing is the cute talking household objects and the hot, tortured prince in love with me.
- Cumbee: I’m choosing the Hippos with tutus from Fantasia. You don’t need an explanation, they’re hippos with tutus.
- Brashaw: My favorite Disney princess is Little Red Riding Hood. C’Mon, after the way I screwed up my draft, you can’t be shocked that i would screw this up too…
- Parker: Without a doubt, Cinderella. It’s the story every sports fan loves. They don’t call it an “Ariel Story” or a “Sleeping Beauty Story” or a “Snow White Story.” They call it a “Cinderella Story.” And they don’t call James Braddock “Belle Man.” The story means even more to me because I have always given Kid Sister something Cinderella for birthdays and Christmases going all the way back to her baptism.
With the win results and just the win bonus this week, a total of 20 points were at stake. Here are your leaders.
