WRG Jennings, gnbLawn Ranger110
WRB Lloyd, denMetal Militia    105
R/WL McCoy, phiLarue117
TEMercedes, jagFranklin Jag73
KM Bryant, Metal Militia111

Some weirdness:

  • P Hillis was undrafted. Nice snag, Militia.
  • Yes, the FRENCH FRY dominated the All-P34 teams this year with 4 selections! 

  • The SMG and Metal Militia tallied 3 All-P34 players each as well. 

  • Alas, none of these teams made the playoffs.

  • The 4 playoff teams combined only had 4 players on the All-P34 teams: Larue 2, Lawn Ranger 1, Palatine 1, Goldfish 0.
What does it mean? Got me.

And, your P34 2010 MVP is...

QB - T Brady, NE

174 points



#89 DITKA - Playoffs

Coach!   Mike Ditka and the classic flat top

Der Playoffs - Round 1

Round 1 matchups are set:

  • Mellonville Larue 59, Palatine Pirate 59 [boxscore]

  • Naperville Goldfish 62, Lawn Ranger 50 [boxscore]

Mellonville wins the playoff tie based on his head-to-head victory over Palatine in week 6, 69-60. Both playoff games were decided during the Monday Night Football game featuring the Bears @ the Viking. Naperville's Chicago defense came through for 16 points. Mellonville withstood a torrid comeback by Palatine's Robbie Gould, who had 16 points as well.

Ack. I can't believe this, but...


Or should I say fantasy football armageddon.

Yahoo has changed the result of the Mellonville v. Palatine game. Larue RB has had his week 15 rushing tally reduced by 1 yard. See?

Yahoo Week 15 stat corrections

This "stat correction" reduces Mendendhall's rushing tally for the day to 99 from 100. Therefore, it also reduces his points for the week to 10 from 11.

So, the final and official round1 scores (I hope) are:

  • Palatine Pirate 59, Mellonville Larue 58  [boxscore]

  • Naperville Goldfish 62, Lawn Ranger 50 [boxscore]

I'm especially glad to have my fantasy aux site. We'll always have the boxscore where Mellonville tied Palatine. We can shake our heads about it in the old folks home decades from now.

PS - The Mendenhall one yard correction actually became an AP story:

Steelers' Mendenhall loses 100 yard game

Rock n roll, baby.

Well, that's a wrap:

Golfish win!

It was a fun, crazy season:

  • Palatine and the Lawn Ranger made their first playoff appearances. Congrats guys!

  • Mellonville was this season's hard luck team. The Larue dominated the regular season by finishing first and leading the league in points scored... only to get bounced from the playoffs at the last possible moment by "The Mendenhall Debacle".

  • Naperville went 12-4 and won the title despite being 9th in the league in scoring at about 52 points per game. Sometimes it's better to be lucky, than good. It was Naperville's 2nd title in 8 seasons of Payton34 (and Jonesy) fantasy football.

Thanks to everyone for playing.

Next year!
