3FL Notes: S7: Week 16 (SuperBowl) Preview

The curse wins again.

The #1 seeded, top scoring, record-tying Lightning have gone the way of our last six top seeds. Coach Thad's team scored their lowest total of the year in a loss to the SuperBowl-bound Renegades. Meanwhile, Misfits, Inc. punched their ticket to the big game by outscoring everyone else in the entire league.

Week 14 set the record for most league points in a playoff week. Last week tied the record for least league points in a playoff week. You just never know what is going to happen in the 3FL...

Top Scoring 3FL Team: Misfits, Inc. - 81 points

Player MVPs:

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

For 7th Place:
#5 Baltimorons vs. #7 Dumbbums
Coach Drew did predict a rematch of last year's SuperBowl - but I'll bet he didn't think the loser of it would end up in eighth place. The Baltimorons put themselves on the wrong end of the records last week, scoring the second fewest points ever in a 3FL playoff week. This should be a great game between the two dim-witted teams, though, with Romo-to-Owens highlighting a battle that will last from Thursday night all the way through Monday night.

For 5th Place:
#3 Marauders vs. #8 ray ray haw
Both of these teams had decisive wins last week after sub-par quarterfinals games. Randy Moss broke their regular season matchup wide open and he may do the same thing again. But the final score may rest upon the sit/start decisions of Coach haw and his corps of six WRs. Or the legs of Adrian Peterson on Sunday night.

For 3rd Place:
#1 Lightning vs. #6 Spiked Vipers
Is it ironic that the (usually) high-flying Lightning can blame much of their semifinal loss on the weather? The curse sent a reminder through the snow showers and now Coach Thad has to settle for playing Coach GooMoo for third place. As for this game, it pits the NFL's two best QBs against each other in what should turn out to be a high scoring affair. Neither team has ever finished higher than fourth place in the 3FL, so one of them will earn a bronze virtual statue on their Yahoo! fantasy sports profile. Does anyone have the weekend forecast?

3FL SuperBowl VII:
#2 Misfits, Inc. vs. #4 Renegades
Who would have guessed these two would meet for the championship and the trophy? Nobody. During the entire 2007 playoffs the Renegades received a total of zero pick'em votes from our league managers. Zero. But that didn't stop them from making it to the SuperBowl. The newlyweds of FitzCorp come storming into this game with some momentum and a few favorable matchups. Will they chose the right starters? Or will Coach Val surprise everyone again? Both teams have players in the MNF game on Christmas Eve - but Santa can only bring the trophy to one of them. We may have to wait until we hear reindeer up on the rooftop to see who it is...

I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas.

Thanks to all for another fun season!

Good luck this week!
