3FL Notes: S6: Week 16 (SuperBowl) Preview

OK, so maybe the semifinal games were a little more lopsided than anyone thought they would be. The average margin of victory was more than 33 points...

Half of the engraved trophy plate is decided. Now we just need a first name. Who will open the present of a championship on Christmas day? Will Coach Coaldog be getting or giving the lump of coal? Will Coach Drew's Monday Night QB be attempting a comeback or sealing a title victory? We'll have to watch and see.

Week 15 Recap

Top Scoring 3FL Team: Dumbbums - 85 points

Player MVPs:
Peyton Manning (QB/Ind) - 29 points
Marvin Harrison (WR/Ind) - 22 points
LaDanian Tomlinson (RB/SD) - 21 points

It's finally here! SuperBowl week in the 3FL...

For 7th Place:
#4 ray ray haw vs. #7 Lightning
Both of these teams looked promising during portions of the season, but now each is on a three game losing streak and fighting to not end up in eighth place. The P's and Q's (and IR) have not been helpful to either team. But all that having been said, it should be a good playoff matchup.

For 5th Place:
#3 Predacons vs. #8 Yuengling Brewers
The Preds went without a TE last week and still turned in their highest point total since week 9 - when they defeated the Brewers. This should be a fun one to watch, as the coaches of these two squads will be together for the holidays. Football on a 42" (or 57") HDTV can't be bad, no matter the outcome.

For 3rd Place:
#1 The Comfy Chair vs. #6 Spiked Vipers
The curse holds for a sixth consecutive year. The number one seeded Chair went down in flames last week, scoring the low total among playoff teams and Coach Skrabby's low total of the year. The Vipers saw their star QB post two points (as opposed to his record breaking performance in week 14). Will the Chair start a new winning streak to end the season? Or will the Vipers come away with their first ever top three finish?

3FL SuperBowl VI:
#2 Baltimorons vs. #5 Dumbbums
Here it is! And worth all of the hype, too. This great matchup will be a Christmas treat for all, especially the coach who comes away with the trophy and has his name permanently engraved in 3FL history. Coach Drew is seeking his second title in three years, while Coach Coaldog has yet to play for the coveted piece of hardware. The Steelers game will weigh heavily on the outcome. But so will the solo performances of LaDanian Tomlinson, Marvin Harrison and Tony Romo. Yahoo! is predicting a tie and so are many in the media. For the record - the first tiebreaker for the playoffs is total team TDs. We may need it.

I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas.

Thanks to all for another fun season!

Good luck this week!

  1. Last year I took notes on coach haw's draft strategy. His team has consistently made the playoffs and he has two championship titles. While lately he has come up short in his playoff appearances, I decided to incorporate what I learned into my own draft strategy for this year. It is fitting, then, that I should be playing him in the final week of the 3FL season - both having come up short in our quest for the 3FL trophy.

    So who do I take notes from for next year; the 'Morons, who drafted 3 QBs or the 'Bums who have way too many players from the same NFL team?

    Maybe I just need to form my own strategy from scratch. We all saw what happened to the teams who took advice from external sources.

    It has been a fun season. I will see you at the 3FL banquet (AKA the New Years Party).
