Nöykkiö ‘niners is the champion!
The bowl game was again an eighteen point victory, and the second ever for a team fielded by me (the first one happened in 2007).
Key to the game was quarterbacking, on both ends of the gridiron. While Drew Brees produced once again (and dismantled the 27 year old Dan Marino yardage record in the meanwhile), the opponent’s playmaker, Tony Romo, netted a zero against the Eagles.
As in the semifinal, I was losing bad, before the last game of the week. In Monday Night Football Saints dismantled the Falcons, and the duo of Brees & Colston netted me 40+ points, and Matt Bryant, Atlanta’s kicker, added twelve. Apart from a suspiciously quiet Greg Olsen (a fat zero from a game where Panthers scored 48 points), the whole team delivered.
The draft, where I picked last went much better than I originally thought. Out of top 15 players, Nöykkiö ‘niners fielded three (Brees, Jones-Drew and Welker) and the top defense (SF). Two players were hurt by long injuries and would probably been higher in the standings (Austin and Forte). Then again, a lot of players went down this season, so I was lucky to retain the top guns in healthy form.
Bring on the next season.
And in the real world: Niners and Saints both in the playoffs.
