Jon Kinsman, YFFL Commissioner

November 08, 2022

Just three short weeks ago, the Refugees were 5-1, avergaing more than 65 points a game and some people in the YFFL media were ready to call off the season and crown them as champions.

Fast forward to today, and the Refugees are a team in crisis.

After losing three consecutive games (all while failing to top 40 points) the Refugees find themselves down two games in the division with just five games left to play and reports signal that Super Bowl MVP Josh Allen may have sustained some sort of elbow injury.

While Allen has slowed his record scoring pace to open the season, the blame for the Refugees recent struggles has to be laid on owner Anthony Aceto's skill positions players, who have mustered a paltry 4 touchdowns combined over that 3 game span. Luckily, the Refugees have the struggling Eaters (losers of their last 4 games and 7 of their last 8) on tap in Week 10 as they attempt to "get right" and chase down the division leading Bear Poop.

With the trade deadline looming in Week 11, will the defending champs make a move to solidify their playoff chances?

Elsewhere around the league, good teams did what good teams do (win) and bad teams did what bad teams do (lose). That includes the 8-1 Buddies, who scored 82 points (even with 38 points from Joe Mixon on the bench!) to down the 2-7 Llamas, the 8-1 Chickens, who outlasted the 2-7 Dragons in a 58-50 slugfest, and the 7-2 Bear Poop, who squeaked by the 2-7 Eaters 26-25 to increase their lead in the AFC East. The Big Boys were also able to continue their momentum from last week and defeat the Beans 50-37 in what may be a pivotal match-up as we start to sort out the NFC Wild Card situation.
