Yet another scintillating season nears its climax with the advent of the playoffs.  Dreams were dashed; hearts were broken; heroes rose and fell; last year’s champ finished out of the money and Y2J proved once again that you can be competitive with a roster full of Pitters. 

Playoffs?!  Playoffs!?

Spen’s Spen’s Angry Reds


The league’s resident commie decided to share the wealth of fantasy by scoring a second to last point total.  He would go on to blame his failure on the commissioner, the league set-up and a faulty tin foil hat.  He takes Shanahan du jour Roy Helu, Tim Tebow, and RACKERS!! with him.  Keepers: none.

KC’s Keystone Cops

Saddled with Ron Paul campaign stumper Peyton Hillis, KC tried to do it with a cast of special teamers, injured old farts and underachievers.  And Eli Manning.  Keepers:  none.

Cap’n Chaos’ Chaos Unlimited

The sacred Chaos looked poised to make a run at a title defense, but BBR’s early struggles and Mendenhall’s unreliability doomed him to an 11th place finish despite accruing 1000+ points.  Unfortunately he also yielded almost 1200 points.  Keepers: Roethlisberger, maybe.

Brinker’s Jackssmirkinrevenge

Quite possibly the worst team to ever play in thee MGS FFL, and certainly one of the poorest maintained, brinker failed to break the 900-point plateau, the only team to do so.  In his defense his team also yielded 1200+ points, second most in the league.  Also, I’m not sure who Jack is or why his mirkin wants revenge.  Keepers: none.

Now, on to the big show!

#1 Finny’s The Sportin’ Woodleys vs #8 pensodyssey’s Chix of Cromartie-Gao

What a year for the finman.  He’s like the league’s Marv Levy—still competitive into his 80’s.  Rodgers, of course; his points total was nearly half of brinker’s entire team.  But Antonio Brown, Adrian Peterson and Matt Forte were all excellent performers too.  No one could possibly ever hope to even compete with the juggernaut Spurtin’ Weirdlies; but the chickens will do the right thing this weekend and suit up anyway, hoping Mike Vick can finally justify his keeper tag, that Vincent Jackson can put it together two weeks straight, and that Arian Foster will be Arian Foster.  Former Woodley Darren Sproles, too, and Jimmy Graham.  The Woods are pretty banged up coming into this week.

Prediction: The chickens are built for postseason success, but still, Rodgers.  Finny by an assbeard hair.

#4 AJ Law’s Taint Ticklers vs #5 scacalaki’s Hungry Whoremongers


The Homongers were the hard luck team this year, scoring 1300+ but finishing just a game better than .500.  Brady to Welker about sums it up; but Steve Smith’s reappearance and MJD’s workhorsemanship were big contributors also.  AJ’s finish was perhaps a bit flattering; a league low 1050 points allowed had something to do with it.  Cam Newton was a great pick up after he lost Peyton for the year, he has the two Dallas wipeouts in a very friendly matchup, and Shady McCoy could go for 20 any given game. 

Prediction: Brady gets his points, the Whoremongers keep a-monging into round 2.

#3 jonzr’s Felonius Thunk vs #6 kluisi’s BenRapedMeToo


Jonzr’s season was by and large saved by the pick up of DeMarco Murray, and the play of Rob Gronkowski.  They might be peaking at the right time.  Pip Livers might be about to put the hollow December numbers we’ve grown accustomed to.  BRMT is the beneficiary of Chris Johnson’s sudden renaissance, plus he gets a friendly match up versus New Orleans.  Calvin Johnson is about the only Lion left worth having.

Prediction: The Bonzr Schooner rolls on.

#2 msdmnr’s Msdmnr’s Mongrels vs #7 y2joyce’s Experienced Livers


The mongrels boast the third of the must-have qb’s in Brees, and good (if unpredictable) secondary scoring in Harvin, Michael Turner, and Ryan Mathews.  The Livers, though, get a tasty matchup with the Lions’ Stafford against Minnesota and Ray Rice versus Indianapolis.  Seriously, Rice looks like a stone cold lead pipe lock this week.  Could be offset by the Baltimore defense for msdmnr though.

Prediction:  The mongrels advance but barely.  Closest game of the week.

I gotta hope Rodgers and Lynch carry my M*A*S*H unit team against the Chix, who, it should be noted, were one of my reg season losses.

Have a feeling that I'll be more Schottenheimer in the playoffs than Levy, but the senility part fits.  This morning I gave the dog my blood pressure medicine while I took his Frontline.  At least the Woodleys will be flea-free.

BTW, I went ahead and got an early start on the roster revisions for the playoffs.  Got rid of the W/T and the W/R but kept the bench for now.

Wait... what?  You'd better not be in aj's remote throwing range if you changed the roster set up for the playoffs!

Well done as always.

I am concerned about the Livers' favorable matchups.  He's got lowest point total of playoff teams, but looks ripe for an explosion.

Not sure if my championship run last year was a fluke or if this year is just a sophomore slump.  Either way, a bad draft combined with a few bad decisions make for a lousy season.  Looking forward to a better draft slot next year.

Good luck to all those still alive!   tt02

I haven't looked at the league yet this week, but I assume the roster changes will only happen in 2012?  Can't make setting changes midseason and definitely not before the start of the playoffs.

BTW, nice work on the predictions.

Finny comes out throwing haymakers, getting 14 from Antonio Brown, but the chickens are able to punch their way out of the corner with a strong 8 from IDP Dqwell Jackson.

Bonzr gets an early edge with Polamalu outpointing Wallace by three-quarters, and aj strikes first with a strong 12 from the PSD.

Time for the Rodgers shitshow to begin.  Didn't get nearly enough out of the o'clock games; I actually think I lost points in the second half, Vick interception, Foster and Blount fumbles.  Almost as painful as my severely aching head.  I can feel the backs of my eyeballs.

Also, commish, is there a reason why we get points for rushing attempts but not receptions?  Seems ass backwards.

Well, Livers came into the playoffs ready for action.  Almost all his guys met or exceeded projections.  Mongrels, not so much.  Turner has been fading lately, Bradshaw a non-factor, Burress - did he even dress?

On the bright side, I don't have to lament any coaching moves - Livers beat my starters and bench COMBINED.

Held onto Gerhart until early November, finally gave up spot needing replacements for rash of injuries, and he wasn't seeing the field at all.  So he comes in and bites me in the ass in the playoffs.

Good win, y2J.

The Woodleys would like to take a moment to Tebow for Baby Lord Jesus bringing his team surprise FF points via receivers and TEs with his running game decimated and Rodgers sitting out mid-3Q.

At 113.00 I had the roundest score of the day.  

And I'd like to take a Tebow for the gift the Dallas kicker (ice, ice baby) game me last night.  For surely The Romo would have racked up a few more pts in OT for BRMT.

Can Finny get 40 points outta Brown, Akers and the SF def?  It will take minor miracle.  And Bonzr needs seven and change from Polamalu to beat the whoremongers.  Looks like scac and y2j are headed to granddaddy of 'em all. My sources tell me joyce informed his team via twitter.

Is an 80 yd INT return for a TD really that much to ask?

Livers got great performances from Stafford and Spiller, while Toby Gebhart siphoned AP's TDs, Rodgers shat it, Forte was sidelined, etc., etc.

Seem to remember last year's team shitting it in similar fashion.

Oh well, nice job Livers, unless Antonio can have the best day by a WR in, uh, ever.

Championship weekend is at last upon us.  After the circus that was MGS FFL media week, the jousting poles are finally greased and both combatants are %110 and looking to grab bragging rights at the virtual Orange Julius.  Scac leads his hungry Hungry Whoremongers looking for his first title since 2004, while Joyce's seasoned Experienced Livers are also looking for there first title since... since... .  We'll just note that Joyce has been to the final before. 

The Homongers are led by Brady, who gets a maybe great matchup against Miami.  The Livers are lead by redneck tub o'lard Matt Stafford who looks to fatten up on the SD secondary.  The marquee backs-- MJD and Ray Rutgers Rice respectively-- draw tough matchups in @TEN and CLE, so that should be a push, too.  This one's coming down to secondary scoring.  The Homonger's Michael Bush is @KC, who surely shot their bolt last week, while the Livers expect big things out of Brandon Marshall versus a shitty, shitty NE pass defense.  Both teams might be following the same game on defense, scac has Houston while the Livers seem intent on starting the IND def. 

Should be a close one, good luck to both worthy contestants.  Let's keep it between the whistles and between the sidelines.

Fantastic shit going down in the championship game.  Scac is down 32 with Gonzalez, Bryant (atl k) and the GB D to play; joyce has nothing left.  If the GB D tcb's tomorrow, we'll see what ATL can do vs. NO monday.

This is truly a tale of two teams getting hot at the right time, penso.  The Livers haven't lost a game since the last time they were beaten and you could say the same thing of the Whoremongers.  There's no quit in these teams, they've taken on the persona of their coaches. While the Whoremongers have a few more bitches in the chase, it appears the drunken Livers stumbled into the endzone enough times to pull this one out, if you know what I mean :nudgenudgewinkwink:  Yes, we may have a new Queen of Fantasy Fooseball tomorrow evening!

Cornflatulations to Joyce.  Ever the bridesmaid, he finally pops his cherry, most noteworthy in that he did not have Brady, Brees or Rodgers.

I'm sure the victory is not at all tainted in the public eye because he did not defeat the chickens en route.
