3FL Notes: S14: Week 16 (SuperBowl) Preview

That was an underwhelming playoff week. After a regular season that saw the league score the most points in our 14 year history, we just witnessed a tie for the lowest playoff week point total ever. Even more interesting was the fact that any of the four teams in the consolation bracket would have beaten any of the four teams in the championship bracket.

Those numbers won't happen again, though, and we've got a title to hand out! Whose name will be etched upon the soon-to-be-updated trophy? We'll have to stay up for Monday Night Football to find out.

Top Scoring 3FL Team: Dumbbums - 80 points

Player MVPs:
Dez Bryant (WR/Dal/SV) - 23 points

Here we's SuperBowl week in the 3FL!

For 7th Place:
#7 Lightning vs. #8 Yuengling Brewers
Appropriately, the seventh and eighth place teams will battle for seventh and eighth place. It's a pretty equal matchup even though 11 of the 14 Brewers players have a red letter beside their name. The Bolts are somehow pretty much unscathed. We are forced to watch Brady vs. Romo to see which team can at least get one playoff win and not start the 2015 season on a L4+ streak.

For 5th Place:
#5 Dumbbums vs. #3 Spiked Vipers
I told you that the 'Bums down week during the quarterfinals was an anomaly. They outscored the entire league by almost 20 points in the semis and that just might happen again. SpiVi was second in scoring last week as Dez Bryant took over the game and the matchups seem to favor Coach GooMoo. It's too bad that this game is only to see which team ends up winning the consolation bracket.

For 3rd Place:
#2 Predacons vs. #4 Misfits, Inc.
Here we go again. The team with the best record and the team that has scored the most points in league history will once again be left off of the championship trophy. They have a combined 25 playoff berths and 6 SuperBowl appearances with zero 3FL titles. The Preds scored about half of their projected total last week while leaving their top scorer on the bench (again). FitzCorp didn't have enough healthy WRs to fill all three starter spots, and their backup QB broke his leg before scoring a point. All of this just means they will play for third place and have to wait until next year (again) to try to win it all.

3FL SuperBowl XIV
#1 the HAW vs. #6 Baltimorons
Coach HAW has three titles. Coach Drew has two. Why not let them play for another? The CAPS come in winning 12 of their past 15 games and they ended up top five all-time for weekly point total and season point total. I think I know what their coach has been up to in his retirement. Anyway, the HAW are the definite favorite (-23 points at this writing) but that's why they play the game, right? The 'Morons limp into the SB with 2 IRs, 1 O, and 2 Qs. Ouch. They do have the curse on their side but Coach HAW is the only one in our history to win it all as the one seed. So there goes that.

Can the HAW make it 4 in 14 years? Will Aaron Rodgers return to the MVP list and lead an amazing upset? Whose mantle will be need to make room for the championship hardware? We've got one weekend to find out!

It all wraps up just in time for Festivus. Good luck this week.

Thanks to all for another fun season!
