The top 4 make the playoffs and all 12 teams are still in the playoff picture.
1) Mookies Minions
2) The Raven
3) Vegas Hurricanes
5) Floppin Nutz
6) General Lee
8) Waffles House of Pain
10) Hometown Hornets
11) Surflexus Bigcats
12) The Non Blogger
I have absolutely no future as a Vegas handicapper as I picked Mookie to finish last and The Non Blogger to finish near the top.
BFFL TEAM OF THE WEEK – Mookies Minions takes the honors with his 28 point victory over Hoyazo. He set a new BFFL point record with 89!
MOWED DOWN TEAM – Waffles House of Pain could only muster 46 points in a losing effort.
GAME 1 – Floppin Nutz – 56 over Mowenumdown – 47
It came down to the battle of the Bells (Mow has Mike and Nutz has Tatum) as both teams were in a virtual tie going into the last game. In the first two games the two had basically spilt the carries, however for this game Tatum was named the primary ball carrier. As a result, he recorded 6 points and Mike recorded none.
Difference in the game – For the Nutz, G. Jennings had a HUGE TD catch and recorded 11 total points. He was projected for 1.
GAME 2 – The Raven – 62 over Hometown Hornets – 49
The Raven got solid performances from T. Brady and T.J. Whosyourmama while the Hornets only had two players reach their predicted total.
Difference in the game – Fred Taylor lost 135 yards as well as one rushing TD to rookie Maurice Jones-Drew. This would have made a huge difference in the outcome.
GAME 3 – Surflexus Bigcats – 68 over Waffle House of Pain – 46
This has to be considered the upset of the week. Surf won despite one of his starting running backs being on a bye week. Surf got a huge performance from RB C. Portis (19 points) as well as QB C. Palmer (21 points) . Waffles had solid play from most of his players but WR P. Burress hurt his chances with –1 point.
Difference in the game – Surf got 40 total points from two players. If anyone gets 40 points from only two players, they will get a W.
GAME 4 – TripsRight – 54 over The Non Blogger – 48
This was a battle of two evenly matched teams. Trips got solid play from several players but WR D. Jackson put him over the top with 14 points.
The Non Blogger took a huge hit when top pick S. Alexander broke his foot. It will be tough for them to overcome this loss.
Difference in the game – TNB only got 8 total points from their TE, K and Def while Trips got 22 from those same positions.
GAME 5 – Mookies Minions – 89 over Hoyazo – 61
Just call Mookie the steam roller. He had huge performances from QB E. Manning, WR R. Williams, WR J. Walker and RB B. Westbrook. The only disappointment for Mook was his TE.
Call it bad timing for Hoyazo, his 61 point output was the 4th highest of the week. He received great performances from his Kicker as well as his Defense.
Difference in the game – It would have been tough to beat an 89 point output but Hoyazo lost several points at the QB and RB positions.
GAME 6 – Vegas Hurricanes – 57 over General Lee – 53
Vegas rode a 28 point day by QB M. Hasselbeck to victory. He needed it as one of his studs (F. Gore) missed part of the game with an abdominal strain.
General Lee got solid performances from his Kicker as well as his defense, but 8 total points from his RBs and WRs.
Difference in the game – Hasselbecks breakout performance of the year.
