Missing starting quarterback Donovan McNabb did not hurt the Macho Row Throwbacks this weekend. The Macho Row Throwbacks move to 2-0, but once again it does not come easily. The Throwbacks knocked out the heavily favored Maclin's Marauders, beating the Eagles bloggers division favorites 99.5-71.5.
Overcoming a terrific performance from personal favorite Matt Schaub (33 fantasy points), the Throwbacks took a 72-71.5 lead into the Monday night football game, thanks in large part to the woeful kicking from Marauders and place kicker Jeff Reed. Reed missed two field goals, giving him -2 fantasy points, and handing the Throwbacks the slightest lead possible going to the Monday night game. On Monday night the Throwbacks pulled away with career performance from tight end Dallas Clark, who recorded a team high 27.5 fantasy points. Clark scored an 80-yard touchdown on the first play of the game to all but clinch a week two victory.
Next up for the Macho Row Throwbacks are back on the road next week against Heard in the Cheap Seats, another Phillies Blogger Division rival.
