Postcards from Camp

Summary

After getting off to a 1-8 start, the White Guys were able to win three of their last four and pulled off the win in the Stupor Bowl to snare the coveted #1 pick. The White Guys finished the year with four wins, which they were lucky to get as the average margin of victory was only 4 points. The White Guys witnessed one of the greatest injury comebacks in NFL history as Adrian Peterson returned from a torn ACL and proceeded to nearly set the NFL rushing yardage record. Peterson just missed out on having a 4th straight 100 point season due to the fact he missed Week 1 on the White Guys bench as a precautionary move. Aceto played musical chairs at the QB spot, which became something of a running joke in the Power Rankings until they were finally able to settle on Sam Bradford as their QB.

Critical Question

Have we seen Larry Fitzgerald's best days? Fitzgerald has been plagued by terrible QB play ever since Kurt Warner hung it up and most owners have probably forgotten what an elite talent Fitzgerald is. With Carson Palmer under center until the Cardinals terrible o-line sends him off on a stretcher, Fitzgerald should be able to once again assert himself as a top five YFFL WR.

Player to Watch

Sam Bradford, QB STL - Aceto has to be hoping there are more days in Bradford's future like the game he delivered in the Stupor Bowl last year when he had 22 points. Bradford has a revamped WR group to work with and the Rams have installed the offense he used in college in an effort to take advantage of the talent he has. The White Guys will go as far as Bradford takes them.

Lineup

Sam Bradford, Adrian Peterson, David Wilson, Larry Fitzgerald, Roddy White, Tony Gonzalez, Matt Prater, #1 Overall Draft Pick

Outlook

It's crazy to think that a team drafting #1 could make the playoffs, but that's what it's looking might happen for the White Guys. To make it even more surprising, this is a team that could probably cut 8-9 players before the draft. Aceto made a wise move to turn down all the offers he was getting when most in the league were calling for him to purge his roster and rebuild. I'm still surprised he kept Tony Gonzalez at the trade deadline, but it looks like he lucked out and will get one more season from the nearly 20 year veteran. When he adds the top pick to his lineup he will be able to match up with any team in the league not named the Chickens or Mallards. However, if Bradford rises to the occasion he will be right with those two teams fighting for that first round bye. The White Guys are a dark horse Super Bowl contender in 2013.

Projections

8-5; 563 Points; 2nd Place NFC East
