Week 4 Fireworks
Alex Smith handed the Chickens their first defeat in one of many shootouts
With NFL bye weeks starting up, six teams out of action (including high powered offenses in Denver, Seattle and Cincinnati), and patched
together lineups throughout the league, it looked like it was going to be a slow week of YFFL action.
Not so fast, my friend.
YFFL teams combined for 833 points in Week 4 (the third highest scoring week in league history and most points scored during a bye week) including
a 91 point outburst from the previously winless Brothers, 80 points from the Dragons, 75 points from the Eaters and a 60-60 tie(!) between the
Huskers and Boys. 23 different players scored two or more touchdowns, including Matt Asiata and Larry Donnell, who each scored 3 touchdowns
(going up head-to-head!) despite never scoring a YFFL TD coming into the game.
Week 4 also marked the first defeat for the two-time defending champion Chickens, who became the last of the unbeatens to fall. A late TD from
Brandon LaFell on Monday night sealed the upset victory for a bye, injury and suspension depleted White Guys squad, prompting the '72 Dolphins to
pop the champagne and send a severely hungover Nick Buoniconti on a frantic search for his pants this morning.
Eaters vs. Buddies
Mike's going to have a field day ripping the YFFL media if the Buddies pull this one out. Too bad they're not going to. The Eaters have enough to take down Manning. Hopefully, Kurt will be heard from in the forum as he takes on the league bully.
