2000 Week 5 Edition


The first of three interdivisional weeks. I will try to predict all games (no comments) from all the leagues.

Halas League

Week 5 comments

Wayne Fontes 101.04 - 56.44 Pigskinned Monkeys

I predicted Monkeys by +5 and it is Fontes by +45. I was realy wrong...
Finally we have on winless team in Halas and it is the 'big' loser of this game.
Fontes had good performances from all his players (double digits scores except for WR Mcknight 03.70).
Monkeys, on the other hand, had only tw odouble digits scorers with good old WR Jerry Rice (12.60) and WR McCaffrey (11.10).
Player of the Game : QB Drew Bledsoe, NE : 26.84

Week 6 preview

Gale Sayers 3 - 3 Walter Payton
Lincoln Assassins +5 - Kardiac Kids
Shek Republic - Kiwi Air +10
Sportin' Life +5 - Thundering Gerbils
Meat Weasels - Wayne Fontes +10
Oklahoma OhNos +30 - Pigskinned Monkeys
Brigantine 69ers - Weapons of Love +5


Rooney League

Week 5 comments

Boston Swarm 88.14 - 47.14 Four Horsemen

It is Warm by +10 (while I predicted a +40 margin...)
Only bright spot in Four Horsemen lineup is QB Grbac 18.44. I don't mention other players because none has reached 10 points...
Boston Swarm surely didn't expect to win this easily, that's why he recommanded his stars to rest (RB James 12.30, RB Staley 03.20 but might be out for season, WR Harrison 10.50, WR Glenn 12.00).
Player of the Game : QB Donovan McNabb, Phi : 27.14

Week 6 preview

Franco Harris 2 - 4 Terry Bradshaw
The Lewinsky Swallows - Boston Swarm +30
Hoosier Tornados - D.S. Dolphins +5
European 99'ers +15 - Panama Pilagers
Molino FFL - Wisconsin Z-Force +30
Class Dismissed +5 - MediaBLITZ
Titan Traders - Four Horsemen +5


Brown League

Week 5 comments

Starfleet Academy 88.44 - 66.24 Austin Powers ITM

Starfleet by +22 while I predicted +15, not too bad !
AITM looks ugly and with this low 66.24 score improved his game average to 64.5... Notable player is RB Terrell Davis with 2.40 and an injured ankle.
Starfleet put a show with 3 20+ guys (QB Griese, RB Garner & WR Schroeder).
Player of the Game : WR Bill Schroeder, GB : 22.80

Week 6 preview

Jim Brown 2 - 4 Otto Graham
Cleveland Browns +20 - Atlanta Jackhammers
Maho Marauders +15 - Conquering Heroes
Degeneration X - Gridiron Dominators +15
Starfleet Academy - daUCBcat +5
Austin Powers International Team of Mystery - Huntley Hackers +10
Ebola Zaire - Connor's DawgPen +10


Landry League

Week 5 comments

Dogs of War 123.60 - 112.24 Spittin' Camels

I predicted Dogs by +40, and it's just +11.
Dogs of War gained this high scoring game to take the Roger Staubach Division lead and remain the only undefeated team in Landry league.
For the Dogs, RB James had his lower score for Y2K with a 'low' 12.30 but WRs Bruce 28.70 and Robinson 24.60 were great. Don't discount TM Ravens second shutout (12-0 vs Cleveland) and 18.00 points.
Camels tried to air it out with a 5WR lineup. 3 were great (Moss : 34.80, Rod Smith : 16.00, and D Alexander : 21.30), 2 were inefficient (Pat Johnson injured and Pathon : 2.80).
Player of the Game : TM Ravens, Bal : 18.00

Week 6 preview

Roger Staubach 3 - 3 Tony Dorsett
Dogs Of War +40 - Montana Peg Legs
New York Logic - Jellystone Flyin' Yogis +15
Bristol County Bulldogs +10 - Mensa Midgets

Oakland Parliament Funkadelic - Damage Inc. +30
Spittin' Camels +5 - We Are Borg


Lombardi League

Week 5 comments

Cambridge Critters 123.16 - 116.62 Las Vegas Grayhounds

Critters by +6 while I predicted by +15. I don't feel too bad this week.
Grayhounds has the highest total points scored against in all NGFFL and dispite posting 116 points, they still lose...
Many great players on both sides with only two players under 10 points WR Hayes for Grayhounds and RB Richardson for Critters.
Player of the Game : WR Issac Bruce, StL : 28.70
