MOB 22 - RED RAIDERS 6 ...  Papi (21-11-112-2-0 & a sack) tossed a couple of short touchdown passes to PacMan B (5-40-1) and Birdman (2-30-1) to put the Mob up ... RR's Wheaties (38-16-205-1-2 & 110 yards rushing) ) found Boog (3-46-1) from 22 yards out for a touchdown to make it to a one-score game ... but late in the contest, LB Bryant (Truth) stepped in front of a short RR pass and took the interception 42 yards to the house to seal the victory ... the Mob made 2 key off-season pickups to add fire-power to an already strong defense by signing the age-less legendary LB Cruz (1 sack) and one of the all-time top cover-corners Super D (Optimistic) ... reuniting Super D at one corner with former Savages teammate Jarred (1 int) at the other, gives the Mob one of - if not the best, corner-tandem in the league right now ... the defense shinned here against RR with 7 team sacks on the day, lead by Icon's 3 ... Trippz and Waverson each had one ... but rest assure, no one on the Red Raiders will be pushing the panic-button just yet, as the champs have been routinely known as slow-starters ... they posses a plethora amount of play-makers with the likes of Mr. Manley (3-33), Jim Jones (3-35), Simba (3-23), Texas (3-57) and HeHateMe (1-11) ... and they might have made the biggest free-agent splash this off-season by grabbing the #2 (soon to be #1) and #4 all-time sack leaders Eze and Big Red (1 sack)... in Red Raiders entire history, they never had a player get them more than 7 sacks in a season ... now they have 2 that can get them that in one game - apiece!  ... and just a heads up - Eze is just 3 sacks from tying and 4 from breaking the all-time sack record currently held by Superbowl ....
 
TEAM X 12 - PREDATORS 0 ...  Juice completed 14 of 24 for 186 yards and added another 115 yards and 2 scores on the ground to lead Team X to its first ever opening-day win with a surprising shut-out over the Predators ... X had solid play from their usual cast of offensive weapons Twin1 (1-10), Twin 2 (2-30), Money (2-25) and Manny (3-31), but not to be out done in free-agency this off-season, they also made a couple of key acquisitions that brings some swag to the defensive side of the ball ... former Predator Riggs - who lead the team with 5 catches for 80 yards from the TE position, is one of the best LB's in the league and brings leadership to a defense that was much-needed ... another fantastic addition, Perry (2 sacks), is going to be a problem for opposing QB's ... Ace and Rambo also had a sack apiece and Carlis had a key break-up on a long pass for the defense ... and while it appears that just about every team benefited from free-agency this off-season, the Predators might have been hurt the hardest ... they lost their #1 and #2 leading receivers from a season ago - which happens to also be their #1 and #2 interceptors (Cody & Johnny) ... their top LB (Riggs) - who was also their #3 interceptor ... and their leading pass-rusher (Ian) who had 10 for them last year ... so GM 5th and 8-time league MVP QB Mag B (28-10-136-0-0) are in need of someone on this roster to fill all those big shoes ... they still have the dangerous Jaeda (2-51 and a int) and long-time vets Ito and Phreak (8th all-time on receiving list), and big Energy (2-17) is always good for a dink-n-dunk here-n-there ... but they would love to get speedy youngsters like Jett (2-10) and Storm-Reyes involved in the mix real quick ... Edwards had a pick ... but the Predz defense provided no sacks as Team X's front wall pitched a shut-out as well ...
DUCKS 20 - WOLVES 8 ...  Bizzy lead all passers on the day completing 23 of 44 for 312 yards and 3 scores ... and got huge production from his TE's Bronson (5-42), Punisher (2-31) and Smash (1-6-1) ... Crudup had the days-high 84 yards receiving on 6 grabs and a touchdown ... T-Coop hauled in the other score from 35 yards out ... and if it wasn't bad enough the Ducks already have last seasons MVP TeamFox (4-66) to frustrate opponents, they've now added 2015 Spring MVP Mayi (Johnny) and 2015 Fall Best Defensive Player and ROTY winner Zalasar (Cody) to their assault weapons list ... Zalasar lead the league with 8 picks last year and picked off 2 more in this game, while Mayi and Ra-Ra each plucked one against the Wolves ...  the Wolves are lead by last seasons Superbowl winning hero's B. Smith (40-17-188-1-4 and 50 rushing) and Webstar - who lead all receivers Sunday with 9 receptions (68 yards and a td) and are loaded with a talented mix of play-making vets like Von aka Prolific (3-50), Nitty (1 sack), Surprize, Nyce (1-8), Ian (1 sack, 2-29), Bino (returned xp int for 2 pts), Cane (Koda) and rookie Mase-Money (2-33) ... can't really call this an expansion team, but this was their first time out - and not taking anything away from the Ducks, but the Wolves needed this game to get acclimated with each other ... now watch out ... sff
2016 SPRING REVIEW
DUCKS 56 - TEAM X 0 ...  Bizzy was smoking hot and completed 19 of 24 for 315 yards and 6 touchdowns ... and just to give you an idea on how well this offense is moving right now, he currently has thrown more td passes than ALL the other teams in the league combined! ...  GM E-Money has given his QB plenty of play-makers to play with ... Crudup remains unstoppable (5-117-2) ... Johnny (Mayi) touched the ball twice on defense and both times ended up in the end-zone (one on his interception and another off a lateral) ... Fox scored twice as well (4-30-2) and had a 32 yard punt return to setup his first score ... Cody (Zalasar) snagged 5 for 94, a score and his 3rd pick of the season ... the TE's continue to contribute big as Smash has now scored in back-to-back games and also chucked a extra-point score to Biz ... Punisher rumbled for 38 yards on one of his 2 catches ... and they also allowed no sacks ... defense pitched a shutout as Papa and Jay-Rosa kept bringing the heat and ended up with a sack apiece ... for X, the game just got away from them too early and too fast  ... Juice (27-15-166-0-2) was effective once again on the ground and racked up 85 yards rushing ...Twin 1 lead the team with 54 receiving yards (on 3 catches) and Shamar caught 3 for 24 ... but X wasn't quite ready for a shoot-out with a team like the Ducks ... their next touchdown thru the air, will be their first touchdown thru the air this season (all their scoring so far has come from the ground)...
RED RAIDERS 20 - PREDATORS 6 ...  both teams suffered opening-day losses, and each wanted to climb out that hole here ... but only one would be able to do that ...the Red Raiders defense was tough - allowing the Predators just 53 yards and 1 first down in the first half ... and when Predz punted, the Red Raiders Magic Mike had some big returns to set up a couple of short td throws from Wheaties (29-20-214-2-1 and 85 rushing) to HeHateMe (4-46-2) to take a 13-0 lead into the half ... after the break, the Predz came out and scored on their opening possession in the 2nd half, when Mag B (32-15-200-1-3) found newly signed free agent wide receiver HD (2-31-1) for a 26 yard touchdown to make the score 13-6 ... but it was a Magic Mike kinda day and he snagged a one-handed interception (his 2nd pick on the day) and returned it 54 yards for a touchdown ....  the score would remain 20-6 the rest of the way ... Mr. Manley chipped in with a team-leading 62 yards receiving (on 4 catches) and the sack-bunch of Big Red (2 sacks), Eze (2 sacks) and Randy kept things hostile in the pit for the defense ... TriggaMike also had a pick ... Ito lead the Predz in receiving with 4 for 71, while Mag had 2 sacks ... newly signed Ahkiel came down with a pick ... stat-note: Eze's next sack will tie him with Superbowl for all-time sacks
DAZED-N-CONFUSED 26 - WOLVES 21 ...  tight epic battle ... the Wolves took a 14-6 halftime lead provided by 2 defensive touchdowns ... the first came off a B. Smith interception that was pitched back to Bino who took it in for the score  ... Dazed would get on the board on a Mas (36-16-318-1-3) one yard run ... and then with just seconds before the half, Nyce made an interception and ran it in from 17 yards out for a Wolves touchdown ... in the 2nd half, a Mas-to-Toro 34 yard completion would setup another touchdown run by Mas (from 4 yards out) to close the gap 14-12 ... the two sides traded another score each - Von (4-65-1) caught one for 16 yards for the Wolves and Toro (5-123-1) hauled in one for 26 yards for Dazed ... score now is 21-18, Wolves ... Shorty stops a Wolves drive with a pick ... then B.Smith (38-20-265-1-2) immediately responds by grabbing his 2nd pick on the day to stop a Daze drive ... but Daze gets the ball back with about 30 seconds left ... and on 3rd down, Mas finds Tank (7-103), who bounces off 3 Wolves and picks up blocks from Peanut and Joe and races 38 yards down the sideline before getting knock out at the 12 ... the very next play with just 12 second left in the game, Mas bootlegs right and scores his 3rd rushing touchdown on the day to give Daze their opening day win ... sff!
MOB 36 - PREDATORS 26 ...  This  was a pretty close battle until the Mob slammed the door with a Papi to Pacman B 58 yard touchdown play to put the game away ... Papi finished with a season-high 403 yards on 22 of 31 passing and 5 touchdowns ... Pacman hauled in a couple deep scores (55 & 58 yards) and ended the day with 3 td's on his 4 receptions for 120 yards ...  Icon and Alstott caught the other Mob scores ... Skillz was targeted a lot and snagged 11 receptions for 140 yards ... Trippz had a sack ... Papi and Icon each had a pick apiece (Icon also grabbed his 4th sack on the year) ... Predators offense looks to be on the same page now, as Mag B threw for 399 yards and 4 touchdowns (20 of 35) ... Jaeda (4-112) and Edwards (4-107) provided some big down the field plays ... Ito (5-40-2), Weapon-X (3-75-1), Jett (1-12-1) and Energy (3-53) all chipped in on the O's biggest output so far this season ... defensively,  Papi doesn't make many mistakes (no turnovers in his first 2 games) and the Mobs front can be stingy when they want to be, so the Predz D came up empty in the big-play department (no sacks/no ints) ... but despite the 0-3 record going into their bye, GM 5th should feel positive about the teams effort in this one ...
DUCKS 34 - DAZED 22 ...  Bizzy guided the Ducks to their 3rd straight win, completing 16 of 23 for 262 yards and 4 scores ... one of his many weapons, Crudup (4-84-1) is off to a super start and currently leads the league in receptions (15), receiving yards (285) and tied with Pacman in scoring (4 tds) ... the versatile Johnny - after scoring 2 defensive td's last week - caught a 43 yard td and also threw a 38 yard td pass to Cody Zal (2-46-1) ... T-Coop (4-72-1) is emerging as another explosive piece to this offense ... Bronson (4-35-1) represented that productive TE crew this week ... Ducks offense is getting plenty of glory, but the defense has been getting aggressive too as Trick (2 sacks) and Jay-Rosa (1 sack) made their presence felt in the pit all day ... but Daze is dangerous bunch and can compete with anyone ... Mas completed 22 of 38 for 302 yards and 3 scores ... Toro (4-100-2) showed he has that other gear, racing thru the Duck defense on a 64 yard catch-n-run ... Peanut (5-69) and Joe (5-63) were in on a chunk of the receiving action and AJ snagged an early sack for the defense ... but when you're playing a team like the Ducks, you can't allow them any free-scores - easy td's were scored by wide-open left-alone Ducks - making it difficult for Daze to keep up here and dropping their record to 1-1 ...
RED RAIDERS 19 - TEAM X 7 ...  Congratulations to Eze as he grabbed the 2 sacks he needed to surpasses Superbowl and become the new all-time leader in career sacks with 121 ... Wheaties (19-15-213-3- & 80 rushing) tossed 2 first half scores to Simba (4-59-1) and HeHateMe (3-37-1) while Mr. Manley (3-47) contributed also, and the champs took an early 12-0 lead ... but 30 seconds before the half, Juice (24-17-233-1-0) found Twin 2 in the back of the end zone for a 27 yard td, to narrow the score 12-7 by the break ...  in the 2nd half, the dog fight continued ... Red Raiders were racking up sacks (Eze 2, Kurt 2 and Big Red 1) ... Riggs (4-84) and Steve (5-44 and an int) were moving the chains for X ... Carlis had 2 interceptions ... but for the 2nd week in a row, Magic Mike - who if he keeps this up, his new name will be "The Closer" - scored the nail-in-the-coffin touchdown - this one on a 30 yard pass from Wheaties ... for X, they displayed that gritty toughness they're capable of ... and have to wonder - if not for a missing flag on Steve's 2nd half interception, which he was about to take 80 yards to the house to give X the lead and some late-game momentum ... how this game could've turned out ... sff!
MOB 26 - DAZED 14 ...   Waverson ignited the Mobs defense right away by grabbing sacks on Daze's first 3 consecutive plays (he'd finish the day with his career-best 4 sacks) and Birdman (4-50) returned a 1st half interception 66 yards for a td ... but later in the game - thanks to Daze's Shorty getting a safety and Tank's 2 td's, the Mob was now clinging to just a shaky 18-14 lead ... last season they let Daze stick around and ended up losing to them OT ... and this game had the same feel ... but Karon came up with a couple of key defensive plays - first braking up a pass in the endzone on a 4th & one play ... then the next series he added an interception to stop another Daze drive ... soon after that,  Papi (35-19-263-3-1) would put the game away for good when he hit Pacman B (4-62-2) on a deep out and up for a 32 yard td - Pacman's 6th score this season to lead the league ... Skillz lead the Mob with 7 receptions for 100 yards and a score ... Icon had a int and picked up his league-leading 6th sack ... Trippz had a sack also ... Daze 's game-plan is, keep it close till late in the game and then pow! ... Mas (33-24-237-2-3) was doing his effective side-arm slinging to Tank (7-122-2), Toro (6-62 and an int) and Prince Ikeem (6-30), while the defense was getting big plays from guys like Shorty (a safety and a sack) and Tamir (2 sacks) ... but this time, they just couldn't deliver on the pow! part ....
WOLVES 19 - TEAM X 13 ...  the Wolves are finding out, there are no "gimme-games" ... trying to rebound from that stunning loss to Daze 2 weeks ago, they found themselves in a another dog-fight here ... it took a one-handed, first-down-making, circus-catch from Surprize (2-37) on a 4th & 10 play with under a minute left in the game before the Wolves could run the clock down and leave with the W ... B. Smith threw 2 td's, rushed for 82 & a score and scooped up 2 sacks ... Webstar (8-85-1) is currently #2 in the league receiving with 22 receptions (Crudup has 23) ... Bino (1 td catch/1 int) just keeps making plays week in/week out ... Mase Money (3-26) is the teams No. 2 receiver and provides a nice change-up ... defensively, whenever X tried to establish some sort of  momentum, Nitty (3 sacks) was there to put an end to that ... Smallz had a sack as well ... but X was playing fearless ... making his first start at QB, Tyler (35-16-269-2-1) threw a 19 yard td to Twin 1 (2-39-1 & a int) to even the score at he half,  7-7 ... Shamar was a major factor here, pulling in 6 receptions for 125 yards and a 2nd half score ... Bullet and Twin 2 each plucked picks and Ace had 2 sacks ... but when it came time to make a stop on that late 4th&10 ... Wolves connect ... and go home with the W ...
DUCKS 24 - RED RAIDERS 6 ... as in each of the 2 battles above, this game could've ended another way if not for a play or two  ... but it didn't, and the Ducks are 4-0 ... Bizzy (34-26-312-4-1) proved once again, that this offense is hard to stop  ... Crudup (8-118-1) has scored a td in every game this season so far ... Johnny (5-57-2) has 5 td's on just 12 combined touches (offense & defensive) and also has a td throw ... his 15 yard td grab here gave the Ducks their late "put-it-away" score ... Cody Zal had a 20 yd td catch and a sack ... T-Coop (3-45), Diaz (3-20) and Punisher (2-14) made clutch plays when called upon ... as did Trick (2 sacks) and Lah (1 sack) ... Red Raiders tried rotating 2 guys at QB  ... Magic Mike (110 yards-1 td passing/64 yards rushing) and Eze (103 passing/62 rushing/1 sack) both took shots from the helm, but a lot of RR's drives stalled once inside the red-zone ... Mr. Manley (5-62) had his most productive output of the season ... Randy brought in 3 for 43 ... Mr. Wonderful (3-26) and Simba (3-23) grabbed some check-down stuff ... Jim Jones interception setup the Magic Mike to Boog 10 yard td ... Jay T and Big Red each got to the QB once ... but it's the Ducks who score twice in the final two minutes to wrap up week four ... sff.
DAZED 28 - TEAM X 18 ... Mas had a sharp game, throwing for his season-best 27 completions, 4 td's and 360 yards  ... he's the only qb to throw over 300 yards in every game this year ... and in the last 2 games, he's connected on 73% of his attempts, so he's sortakinda in a groove right now ... they're a better team when they're getting big plays from Joe - and he had some big plays here - catching 6 for a team-leading 97 yards while pulling in his first td grab and snagging his first int of the season ... Tank (8-78-1 / 1 sack) and Toro (5-86-1) did Tank and Toro type things ...  Nav (4-52) pulled in some tough grabs ... Prince Ikeem had an interception, while both AJ and Tamir (3-29-1) each had a sack apiece ... Team X's Tyler took his 2nd straight start at qb and continues to prove he's capable of providing sparks - completing 20 of 34 for 252 yards, 3 td's and 75 rushing on the ground ... Bowers (4-59-2), Steven (7-84-1) and Twin 1 (4-52) were the prime targets and displayed their big-play potential ... Perry (2 sacks) and Ace (1 sack) worked hard at applying pressure ...
DUCKS 32 - MOB 12 ... Bizzy completed 23 of 30 for 250 yards and 4 td’s … Fox (8-124-1) and Punisher (2-21-1) each scored first half touchdowns to give the Ducks an early 14-0 lead … but the Mob was able to close the gap when Papi (36-24-272-1-0) hit Cojo (5-73-1) for a 22 yard score right before halftime, 14-6 … and early in the 2nd half, Papi – who also ran 5 times for 107 yards – scored from 2 yards out to put the score at 14-12 … but the Ducks would pull away for good with short scores by Crudup (8-68-1) and Cody (2-15-1) … Cody would also add a game-ending pick-six to widen the margin … E Money was super disruptive in the pit and came away with 2 sacks for the Ducks … Jared (7-74), Birdman (5-51) and Optimistic (4-47 & a int) were on the receiving end of most of the Mobs passes … Trippz and Icon had a sack each … stat note: with just 1 interception in 155 attempts, Bizzy finished his regular season with the 2nd best ever "interception rate percentage" by a quarterback ... his 0.645% is only 2nd to Icon's 0.354% mark set way back in 2002.
WOLVES 32 - PREDATORS 21 ... Capitalizing on 3 first-half interceptions made by Mike - one in which he returned 66 yards for the games first score, and an Ahkiel (16-8-107-1-1) to Jaeda (2-25-2 and 1 int) 21 yard td hook-up, the Predators took a 14-6 lead into the half ... Danny (6-75) pulled down some clutch grabs ...   Energy came in at qb and did a nice job moving the team, completing 6 of 9 for 73 yards and hooking up with Jaeda on a 4 yard score ... Ra-Ra had a sack for the Predz ... but B. Smith (24-12-147-1-4) did most of his damage on the ground, and mostly in the 2nd half where he rushed for 116 of his 148 rushing yards on the day ... he scored 3 td's- including a 74 yard burst ... Von (3-63-1) caught a late 26 yard score to give the Wolves a small 5 point lead (26-21) ... Predators get the ball back with less than a minute left ... they're driving down the field ... looking for their 1st win of the season ... but the Wolves corner Blizz steps in front of a sideline pass and takes the pick-six 64 yards to the house to close out the game ... sff.
MOB 35 - TEAM X 26 ...  Papi completed 19 of 29 for 283 yards and 2 scores while also picking up 81 yards and 3 touchdowns on runs ... Skillz lead the team with 5 catches for 90 yards ... touchdowns were hauled in by Cojo (from 42 yards) and Birdman (from 6 yards) ... Alstott (3-27), Pacman B (2-45) and Bossman (2-30) were the other contributing offensive weapons ... defensively, Trippz picked up his 5th and 6th sacks of the season ... Cruz was also in on a sack ... and the long-time veteran Icon pulled down his 90th career interception ... Team X got another promising performance from quarterback Tyler, who threw for 112 yards and 2 td's - both to Bowers (5-31-2) - and rushed for 117 and a 12 yard score ... Juice also saw some qb time and hooked up with Steven (4-50-1) on a 21 yard touchdown ... Ace and Perry each snagged 2 sacks as they finished the season with 6 sacks apiece to lead the team ... stat note:  Good season for careful quarterbacks as, Papi, with 1 interception in his 152 attempts (.657) had the 3rd best all-time "Interception Rate Percentage" by a qb in a season.
 
RED RAIDERS 41 - WOLVES 0 ...  Wheaties threw 4 touchdowns while completing 14 of 23 for 246 yards and picked up 76 yards and a touchdown on the ground ... HeHateMe caught 2 short scores ... Simba scored twice as well - one on a 1 yard run, the other a 38 yard reception ... Mr. Wonderful (3-45-1), Boog (3-69-0), Jim Jones (1-38) and Mr. Manley (2-37) provided some big plays ... the defense swarmed and finished with 6 team-sacks - 3 by Jay T ... Kurt had 1 and Big Red got 2, and finished in a tie with Icon for the league-lead with 7 ... Trigga had the games only turnover on a late interception ... Wolves B. Smith did throw for 224 yards, but the RR defense contained the leagues leading rusher on the ground, limiting him to a season-low 39 yards rushing ... Von (5-89), Nyce (4-39), Web (3-30), Bino (2-36) and SixCess (2-20) were all involved, but the Wolves just couldn't get anybody in the end zone ... Koda had 2 sacks for the Wolves defense ...
DAZED 36 - PREDATORS 20 ...  shots were being fired as both teams combined for over 1000 yards  in passing ... Mas threw for 519 yards and finished the season #1 in passing yards with 1826 ... in this game,  he completed 26 of 40 and connected on 5 td throws ... Toro caught 9 for 150 and 2 scores and also had a pick ... Joe had 105 yards and a td on his 4 grabs plus he had a pick too ... Tank had 4 receptions for 75 and a td ... and Shorty scored on a 59 yard pass play ... Tamir (3-62) and Nav (2-44) were in on big plays too ... the Predators have to be this seasons strangest story ... after being one of the leagues top-tier teams last year, this year they finish winless ... but they didn't go down without a fight as Mag B threw for a league-high 534 yards on 40 of 53 passing ... Danny (8-172), Jaeda (7-111-1 and a pick), Mike (8-70-1 and a pick), Storm-Reyes (4-72) and Edwards (4-40-1) all had their most productive day #'s wise - but the team could only cash all that in for 20 points ... Superbowl did pick up a sack and brought his career total to 121 ... but remains 1 sack behind the current all-time sack king, EZE ... sff.
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE UNDEFEATED 1ST PLACE DUCKS
Dazed defense got off to a promising start on the very first play of the game when Prince Ikeem grabbed an interception to setup a Mas to Toro  12 yard touchdown 4 plays later  ... 8-0 Dazed
...  both teams spent the rest of the first quarter feeling each other out ... each had drives that stalled inside the 5 ...
... until B. Smith bootlegs left and scores on a 10 yard run to tie the game up at 8-8 ... and after Daze turns it over on downs, Wolves score again, as Money Mase makes a 3 yard td catch ... Wolves lead 14-8 ...
... on the Wolves next possession, they strike again, this time on a Webstar 50 yard catch-n-run to go up 20-8 ... however, with under a minute left in the half, a shanked 8 yard punt by the Wolves gives Daze  great field position and a golden opportunity  ... but despite 3 tries from inside the 5, they fail to score and Wolves take the 12-point lead and momentum into the half ...
... the Wolves assault continued in the 2nd half ... Ian picked up his 3rd sack of the game ... B.Smith threw his 3rd touchdown pass - a 65 yard scoring play to Smitty ...  Money Mase scored his 2nd td, this one on a 4 yard run ... both corners, Bino and Blizz had interceptions ... and Nitty just simply dominated the line of scrimmage with SIX second-half sacks ... Wolves 33 - Dazed 8
The game started out with tough defensive stands by both sides ... Red Raiders Sims had an early interception, but the champs were unable to cash it in for any points as each team were forced to exchanged punts early ... 
Team X was being stingy as Perry had 2 sacks on Wheaties on back-to-back plays  ... but with 5 minutes left in the half, Mr. Manley caught a 10 yard td while rolling on his back to put Red Raiders on the board, 7-0 ... 
... a Big Red sack would force Team X into a 3 & out ...
