3FL Notes: Week 16 (SuperBowl) Preview

If you didn't stay up until the very end of MNF then shame on you until training camp starts. The haw was feeling the full brunt of the curse and trailing by five points with just over ten minutes to go. And then somehow the Bears D forced three turnovers - the last one with only :39 seconds left in the game - to give them a one point victory.

Meanwhile Misfits, Inc. was off to a rocky start until Michael Vick and DeSean Jackson combined for 32 fantasy points in the final 7:28 of their game against the Giants.

There is a lesson in all of this; don't go to sleep. You never know what can happen in the 3FL, especially during the playoffs.

SuperBowl week is finally here!! Who will be receiving a late Christmas present? We'll have to watch and see.

Here we go...SuperBowl week in the 3FL!

For 7th Place:
#5 Stiletto Stompers vs. #6 Lightning
Every year we have one unlucky team that ends up a lot lower in the standings after the playoffs than when they started. Both of these teams fall into that category, with the high hopes of week 14 giving way to the possibility of ending up eighth and carrying a three (or four) game losing streak into next season. Come see the Josh Freeman vs. Jason Campbell show!

For 5th Place:
#7 Predacons vs. #8 Baltimorons
This is actually going to be a really good game. It's almost a shame that it only crowns the winner of the consolation bracket. Still, with players in every game throughout the week it will be a back and forth battle that comes down to Monday night. Either way, both of these teams will end the season higher than they started in the playoffs.

For 3rd Place:
#2 The Comfy Chair vs. #4 Renegades
I still don't believe what happened on Monday night. I thought it was all over when Percy Harvin caught a TD against the Bears Defense on the first drive. But somehow the haw clawed back and put the Renegades here, against the unlucky Chair. Can Coach Val take another MNF comeback, this time from a WR and a K? I think she'll be OK. She has a wedding to plan.

3FL SuperBowl X
#1 ray ray haw vs. #3 Misfits, Inc.
Here it is! A great matchup deserving of our tenth SuperBowl. Can you believe we've played a decade of fantasy football?

We all know the storyline here - it's Brady against Vick, the two top scoring QBs in the league. But don't rule out a lesser known player coming up big and claiming the trophy for his coach. Will it be one of the haw's elite RBs? Or one of the Corporation's high flying WRs? Or someone out of the blue? It all comes down to this!

Can the haw break the curse and win their third title? Or will Misfits, Inc. engrave their name on the trophy for the first time? Don't forget to stay up for Monday Night Football. It should be a great one - and the 3FL title awaits!

Happy Festivus, Merry Christmas and good luck this week.

Thanks to all for another fun season!
