UnderDawgs Thrive on AdversityPosted: September 24, 2008
The Dutchess UnderDawgs enter Week 4 of Nightcap fantasy football play with an undefeated record and a "bite me" mentality.
The big Dawgs came to play once again last week, running all over the Pittsburgh Stealers in a defensive muscle tussle to raise their record to 3-0, good for undisputed possession of first place in the Somers/Armonk Division.
Next on tap for the Dawgs is a contest with the G-Whizzers, who have been established as early five-point faves despite their 1-2 record.
"If you can’t run with the big Dawgs then stay on the porch," said Dawgs owner/GM/coach Mad Dawg. "We plan on curbing the G-Whizzers straight up against the nearest fire hydrant."
Despite their 3-0 start, Mad Dawg, who is also the Dawgs offensive coordinator, has come under fire for sitting Ronnie Brown, leaving five touchdowns and 45 points on the bench.
"We were told by our Miami connection, who deals directly with Dolphins coach Tony Sparano, that Ricky Williams would get most of the touches against the Patriots," explained a Dawgs spokesperson. "Rest assured, our offensive guru is in chateau bow-wow this week. Fortunately for him, the Dolphins have a bye week."
And so do the Dawgs. No less than five Dawgs — including Brown, three wide receivers, and the Super Bowl champion Giants defense — will be missing in action on Sunday.
However, the Dawgs seems to thrive on adversity, like pit bulls in a China shop.
