Pack Attack (128.25) vs teamAlaska (103.32)
Pack Attack (4-9) gets win #4 on the season and finishes the season winning three of their last four! They will be looking to build on that momentum and hopefully carry it over into next season. For teamAlaska (7-6), they finished off the season losing five of their last six games and yet they STILL made the playoffs! At this point I think teamAlaska will take it however they can as this is their first playoff berth since the 2011 season. They had went 8 straight years without a playoff berth and now all that is history as they are back and looking for championship #2!
U Don’t Know (127.70) vs 16hrs Ahead of You!! (116.34)
U Don’t Know (9-4) starting in Week 3 was being talked about as a team that had the right pieces to be one of the top teams in the league and then after six weeks they had yet to lose a game. They struggled a bit in the second half of the season going 3-4 in their final 7 games however here they are with this win sitting as the #1 overall seed. They are clearly one of the favorites to win it all! 16hrs (5-8) can’t find a way to get the win in this one but they showed something this year that we haven’t seen in years past and that is they fought all the way up to the very end. Even in this game when they had nothing to play for they didn’t get the win but they did make a game of it. That’s the positive side. In the not so positive side of things, it has now been a decade since they have had their last winning season or made the playoffs. That ties the all time record set by U Don’t Know. There you go 16hrs.. your motivation for next season.
Big Papa (151.99) vs Sportsfreak (115.63)
Wow! What an improbable run Big Papa (9-4) has been on these last 5 weeks! This is a team that 5 weeks ago was 5-3 and although a good team there were not many people listing them up there with the top teams in the league. Fast forward to today and they just finished up the last 5 games of the season on a 4-1 run and find themselves not only in the playoffs but finishing as the #2 seed and enjoying a first round bye! That is impressive Big Papa! You know it is always said it’s not how you start but how you finish and they have finished as one of the top teams in the league and now are two wins away from their first ever championship. Well done! For Sportsfreak (3-10) you thought things couldn’t get a whole lot worse but somehow in the last week of the season they figured out a way to make things a little bit worse! With their loss and Pack Attack’s win, Sportsfreak takes over and will finish in last place in the league this year! A tough ending to an already tough season!
HHH (146.98) vs BIGBOY! (124.45)
The last four weeks we saw once again the HHH (7-6) team that started off the season 4-1 and looked like one of the better ones in the league. It is hard though to make the playoffs when you have a stretch where you lose four games in a row and that is what happened to HHH as they went 0-4 in weeks 6-9. Had they found a way to win one of those games they would be in the playoffs right now! This is a good team that hit some tough luck and unfortunately for them they will be left playing for a consolation round championship to prove they are the 7th best team in the league! 🙂 BIGBOY! loses another game and finishes their season out at 5-8. This will be the first time in their now 11 seasons in this league that they have missed the playoffs in back to back years. Better luck next year BIGBOY!
Bossman (157.51) vs Starrfavrerodg (110.23)
Bossman (8-5) did what they are known for and that is taking care of business when it counts. They were hoping for a little help so that they could snag that they could sneak into one of the top two spots but that fell through so they finish off at #3. They are now back in the playoffs and ready to avenge their Super Bowl loss from a year ago. Starrfavrerodg (8-5) loses their 3rd straight game but all that is history now as they finish off their rookie campaign with an impressive 8 wins and a playoff berth. I know they are happy with their regular season (minus the last three weeks) but now is when the real fun begins and they are out to win a championship. We will see both of these teams in action next week as the first round of the playoffs begin!
DaUnderdog (112.07) vs PackerFANatic7 (65.01)
I have to say I am impressed with the way DaUnderdog (6-7) finished out their season. They won three of their last four games and finished it off with an impressive win over a team that was fighting for their playoff lives. Nicely done DaUnderdog. For PackerFANatic7 (7-6) they picked a terrible time to have their worst week of the season. I am not sure if it was the pressure that got to them but the only person who came to play this week was J. Robinson and he is an undrafted rookie! Everything was there for the taking as all they needed to do was win and they were in thanks to losses by teamAlaska and Rapids Plungers but they couldn’t get it done. They will now be left playing the “what if” game for an entire year and will miss the playoffs for the third straight year. Both these teams will however be playing in the Consolation round so they will be trying to prove they are the best of the rest!
pack slayer (141.92) vs Rapids Plungers (101.12)
This has been a bit of a frustrating year for pack slayer (6-7) as their team would look great one week and then awful the next. pack slayer coach Jared W just couldn’t get his team to show any type of consistency and that was what cost them a playoff spot this year. They did come out and play well this week and dominated a Rapids Plungers (7-6) team that last week put up a record 241 points. I am not sure if that makes it even more of a frustrating year for pack slayer as they feel like they should be one of the 6 but the fact of the matter is they aren’t and now they like eight other teams will be left trying to figure out how to get back to the playoffs next season. For Rapids Plungers (7-6) this has been an interesting year. They started off the season slow by losing three of their first four games but they moved back into the playoff race by going 4-1 the next five weeks only to finish off the season at 7-6. At the end of the day, this is the defending champion, they are in the playoffs and they have showed that they can get hot at any time! Even though this season maybe hasn’t gone exactly as planned they now are in a position to win three more games and defend their title! Not much more you could ask for!
That’s it for this week everyone. Have a great week!
