Playoff Game Tie-Breakers To Be Reviewed?
It is likely that when the 8 YFFL Owners convene this off-season for the annual Owners Meeting, the No. 1 priority on the agenda will be coming up with a fair tie-breaker should a playoff game end in a tie. Some owners believe that bench players should be the tie-breaker while more conservative owners want total touchdowns to determine who wins.
Davidson's Luck Continues To Roll
Outside the YFFL, Brian Davidson can't seem to buy any luck these days. Tuesday's flat tire was the most recent reminder of that trend. However, inside the YFFL Bri Davidson teams have been fortunate all season. Role players like Correll Buckhalter have come up big just at the right time all year. Combining some luck with some talented MVP candidates (Steve McNair, Steven Davis) and emerging stars (Santana Moss, Chad Johnson) has been the right combination as Davidson has compiled a 17-3 record this season.
Trade Deadline Passes Quietly
There were no trades this past week which surprised many owners as every team is mathematically still alive for the playoffs. On an interesting side note, Bobby Sansone has been involved in all five trades dating back to August 18 of 2002. Sansone has been involved in 8 of the 10 YFFL trades over the past 3 seasons.
Rudi Johnson, Dominack Davis Hope Waivers Is Here To Stay
The Waiver Wire was as busy as ever this season as owners looked to fill holes caused by injuries and bye weeks. Two of the best pick-ups have been the Merry Men's Rudi Johnson and the Gooks Dominack Davis. Both acquisitions have enabled their respective teams to claw their way back into the playoff hunt. Rudi Johnson told YFFL.com that because of the addition of waivers, he will be able to feed his family this Thanksgiving. Likewise, Davis said that he will now be able to quit his part-time job as a chair lift operator at Mt. Abram this winter.
Aceto Impressed With Walker, Burleson
Newly acquired WRs Javon Walker and Nate Burleson were quick to impress their new owner. Walker scored twice in Week 9 (although not in the lineup) and Burleson added a TD this past weekend as the Refugees look to rebuild for 2004.
Kinsman To Stick With Warner In Week 11
Kurt Warner, who hasn't scored since Week 1, has been named the Week 11 starter in the Buddies pivotal AFC West showdown with the Thugs. Seneca Wallace had been pressing Warner for the starting job but Mike says Warner will keep his job until Michael Vick returns in time for the regular season finale.
