Wildcardweekend went and came in only 2 days. On day 2 all 4 games were played, and I stand here with 2 out of 4 correct. I, Robbert Graaf, must hit it better now.
But here it comes. Divisional week. This is where the 4 topseeded teams joins in on the fun, and have only 8 teams left in the playoff. Sadly the stats department got caught with the pants down around their ankels because of the fast wildcard round, so I am still referring to week 15 stats.
This time I start with SHC.
Kislev White Wolves
(No1) vs Grenzburg Greenskins
Now the big boys enter the arena. my oh my. White Wolves are a great side, and just maybe my favorite to win the SuperBowl this season. Yes, and early guess, almost putting my head on the block here. Just listen to this. No2 in most TD (28), Tied best defence(round 16 stat 13 TD conseeded), 3rd most cas (55 cas, but most cas of remaining teams). So on all important parametres they are in the top of the league. No wonder they went No1 overall seed in regular season with an impressive record of 13/2/1. Coach Doofr somehow managed to get some of the best players on his team. And they perform well. Players like Blitzer Fletcher Cox (ST5/Tackle/Break Tackle/MB) and Blitzer Asnnel Robo (A5/Tackle/Guard/MB) will be top performers here. The team got more stars than these 2, but they are top of pop if you ask me. White wolves brings 15 players to the game, and it looks like Greenskins only bring 14 it seems.
Greenskins on the other hand comes from the wildcard round showing Bilbali Rangers the door. Greenskins just sneaked in the playoff with a round 16 draw against the Rangers, they then took care of later. Well played by coach Matthueycamo. Skins also got a good defence with only 14 TD against in the season, and is a team great at blocking. You want to watch Blitzer Derek Trotter (Tackle/Dodge/Jump Up/MB/PO) as he made 10 blocks in the rangers game, and was a dominant force in the Greenskins drives. Another player to look out for is Catcher Art Monk(AG4/Fend/Dodge/SS) who ran 37 yards with the ball that game and made both TDs also.
So we have to great defences, and 2 teams who can score TDs. Greenskins runs a very solid offence, and White Wolves has been performing all season.
I see this game as the most close game this round. Last time the 2 sides met it was a 1-0 win for the White Wolves, and I think they will do it again. White Wolves win
this one. So Matt. You must make an Avanlanche trick on me this season. ;)
The other game in SHc is:
(No2) vs Brionne Buccaneers
Wolfskins comes from a byeweek and they bring a full team of 16 players. However. 4 of these players are rookies. (no bios made.) /boo
On the other hand, the stars will not need to go on LoS anytime soon. Wolfskins comes undefeated into the playoff with a 9/7/0 record. Very impressive. Wolfskins also know how to make TDs and are 3rd in the league(27 TD), and they are 3rd best in total blocks(736 blocks). Like any top team they have their fair share of freaks in the team and Catcher A. J. Jenkins(AG5/Block/Leap) is one of them. Another play I like to put foreward here is Ogre Tony Mumbay (Block/Dodge/guard) who is not flashy at all, but he is solid and does what ogres does best. Stand in the way, and make is teammates better. Wolfskins also got som +ST to help with all the blocks.
The Buccaneers comes from a crazy wildcard game. The had some stars out in that game but still took home a though fought win. Now Franchise Ogre Friedrich "Gentle" Dunkelhelm (ST6/Block/Guard/SF/BT) is back. He must play his best to lift this team after some horrible fan threw a rock at ST4 Lino Todd Nathanson last game, and he lost some ST on that hit. This shook coach Meanandugl so much he had to leave the stadium for a bit. But was he really outside getting info on the opponent, so he could turn the horrible start to a win? We were all happy he came back, and took the fight to the opponent. Well done! Bucs also need Blitzer Michael Liedtke (Frenzy/Tackle/MB/PO) to shine to move on from this game. Also blitzer Jacquotte Delahaye showed some willpower and made 14 blocks last game. Players like him can pave the way for Bucs here. These 2 teams has not met in ages, so the last game was a 2-2 draw. back then Wolfskins had another coach, so hard to predict this game. These 2 coaches has never faced off in DLE!
Rumours from inside Bucs training ground before the big match, indicates the team is shook from the loss of Todd for the next game. Both teams has taken some losses the last games, so The Battle of the Sickbed this is. Wolfskins wins
. Sorry Mean. Your battered team is on quite the journey, but it ends here.
This brings us to KFC.
(No1) vs San Luis 49ers
(No6) One to Watch!
Patriots come from a byeweek, and brings a full 16 man squad.(edit! Ogre is missing) Patriots are defending champions and didn't lose a game all regular season this season. They come to the playoff with a 10/6/0 record. Impressive. But funny enough. They are not leading in TD, nor in defence, and they are split 4th in cas made(52). But one thing they do. They position well. Patriots are no1 in least blocks taken (478). that means they don't lose many players, and bring a good group of players to the playoff. The top stars are players like Blitzer Winston Douglas (PO/MB/Jump Up/Tackle/Pro) and Thrower Blake 'The Boss' Bortles (ST4/AG4/+MA/Block/Tackle/Fend). Bortles runs the ball, and Winstons clears a path for him. But some of the real stars and the players to watch are the group of linemen counting +AV/wrestle, +ST on seeral linos ect. Hard sturdy guys, who can take a punch when needed. Coach Bghandras has build a team completely to his liking, and the synergy between team and coach is was makes this team a dangerous opponent.
Facing this Goliath is new returned David(Coach Neubau) of the 49ers. He speaks a lot. He speaks about how his team doesn't fit his style ect. But he still took home a win against the Gunners in a dominant way. Is he underplaying the team potential? A team with players like Catcher Alshon Jeffrey (AG4/ST4/AV8/block - DLE Vampire no1) a good ballcarrier. Last game he ran 27 yards and made both 49ers TDs. Another star is Blitzer Frank Nunley (Tackle/Dodge/Juggs/MB/PO) with 10 block and 2 cas last game. He made a huge difference in the Gunners game. Since his return, Neubau has won 5 games and drawing 1. He claimed the Razorbacks were lucky back then, but he can beat the Patriots and show the Razorbacks how to play ball. Can you tell I, Robbert Graaf, covers all Razorbacks games? We get back them in a bit. So. erhm. Neubau! ehrm. yes. Undefeated since his return, so he can put up a big fight here.
No doubt. Patriots are huge favorites here. (I know, I'm buying into the 49ers agenda), But here is the cracker! 49ers win!
Yes, this is a long shot, but only picking the favorites is no fun!
Last game of the round is:
(No2) vs Marienburg Foxes
Razorbacks started the season with guns blazing and beat the Foxes 1-0 in the firts game of the season. Razors are tied 1st in defence (13 TD taken round 16 stats), and are split 5th in fouls made. So no big stats here. Teamperformance and roster is alike. Very mediocre. No real +ST not that much guard ect. But the team is build to the liking of headcoach SpecialOne. Top players on the team is Blitzer Alec Ogletree (+MA/Frenzy/tackle/MB) whos is the prime blitzer and safety on the defence. Another star is Thrower Tyler Wilson (+MA/Leader/block/Acc), who is the main ballcarrier on the team. Its a fast team, with several +MA players, but nothing fancy. Razors comes with a 8/6/2 record, and has shown some decline in form as they lost the last 2 games of the season, once the byeweek was secured. Can they bring back the form from the start of the season? Or will they stumble now? Razorbacks has a couple of players out with injury, among them prime 1turner Corey Fuller.
Marienburg Foxes comes from the wildcard round where they beat Middenheim Classics 1-0, but lost a good lino in the process. Foxes bring 15 players to the game. Last game an unseen player stole the picture as blitzer Yale Lary scored the only TD, and is starting to make a name for himself. Foxes also bring Catcher Steve Van Buren (+AG/+MA/Block/SS/NOS) a good household player always dangerous with scoring TD. Foxes is a team that can utilize all their players, so you never know who will really shine for the team. Lary is the lastest example of that. Is a well coached team, and they stole the division title in front of rivals as 1horns and Cards, and prove me wrong in my predictions of even making the playoffs. This team is the stuff of tough. They don't give up.
Razorbacks and Foxes have met in playoff before. Season3 where Razorbacks won in the wildcard round with a beat up team from regular season. With that in mind and the week1 win this season, I think the Razorbacks wins
. Sorry misterlonestar. Razorbacks will break your playoff dreams once again.
This was all from me this time.
