Brian's Boss Team
Here's a list of sports scenarios where it's borderline excusable to go 0-for-2: A double-fault in tennis, a hitter's line in baseball, and the Jazz facing MJ's Bulls in the Finals. That's basically it. Going 0-for-2 on field goal attempts this past week? Seems like Brett Maher might have just toe-bashed himself to the waiver wire after that sort of effort.
All of the cake, none of the icing: The six starting offensive skill players on Matt's Team (three WRs, two RBs, one TE) combined to record a whopping 370 total yards. None of those starters could find his way to the end zone in Week 13.
