Harry Again & Again & By Default ...

There is a very good reason for the Paydirt recap to come out today. As GM, I had to wait to see if the Paydirt crown handed to the New England Patriots this year would stand up in court! Of course when all the lawyers fees were settled, payments to the arbiter of the “Deflate gate” were processed, and the last die fell into the dice tower… Tom Brady and the Pats were vindicated and once again the old guard holder Harry Flawd held off the challenge of a couple of veterans and a couple of stalwart youngsters to win both the AFC and NFC heats and take the Super Bowl Title by default—giving him a total of nine.

It was a strange and very intriguing AFC Heat on Wednesday, as we picked up four new players, including long time Paydirt player but WBC newbie, Dan Overland, who would lead his Steelers into the AFC title game. The opening round saw all but two of the games finish with both teems within hailing distance if only they could manage another TD. That included two OT games, where Dan’s Steelers nipped Paydirt veteran Bill Place’s Browns 27-21, and Derek Landel’s Broncos topped Sam Berk’s Bengals. Remaining on that nail biter theme, Round 2 saw only one game not finish within a single TD. It was a very competitive season! Big moments from Round 2 included Ryan Friedman getting a late FG to beat Paul Bean 37-35, Dan’s Steelers defeating Mark Love’s Jaguars 35-34, and Joe Yaure’s Jets topple Derek’s Broncos 41-38 using the point spread to his advantage. Joe continued his mastery of the spread with the Jets taking down 2002 champ Bill O’Neal 39-38 next, while Harry was getting all he could handle from Dale Long’s Broncos, trailing 11-0 late in the third quarter, before Brady tossed two late TDs to win 14-11, and Dan’s Steelers finally steamrollered Ryan’s Ravens 42-9. Joe finally ran out of steam against Dan 45-44 in an amazing game with many players watching and hanging on the back and forth tussle until the very end. In the other game, Harry once again had a rough go with his Patriots, playing Dan Dolan’s Dolphins tight throughout the game until a late Dolphin pick.

The AFC Championship was predicted to be a high scoring, but tight game. Well, one out of two ain’t bad. NE picked off Pitt on the first play of the game and scored two plays later. Another quick score made it a 14-3 lead. Pitt had trouble holding onto the ball, as they climbed back to 14-10 and held NE for a punt, but the return man could not hold onto it for a fumble and NE once again capitalized for a TD. The dagger came with NE leading 28-10 but Pitt on the NE 5 with :30 left in the half….and again NE picked off the pass to end the threat, coasting to a 48-25 win.

Over in the NFC Heat, we celebrated the return to Friday from Thursday, as 24 players took the field, up eight from last year. Lesson learned. Harry did not bid on any teams, instead just waiting to see what team would be left to keep it even numbered. What was left was Tampa Bay—the worst team in the set. So we figured we would play the spread and hope for the best. Round 1 again produced many exciting games with Joe Betz and the Eagles topping Versek D and his Packers 50-45, Chris Palermo taking out chart designer Ron Pisarz and his Giants 44-42, and Geoffrey P’s Redskins defeating Paul Bean’s Seahawks 35-33. Tourney favorite Detroit coached by Ray Stakenas II was taken down by Doug Gallulo’s Falcons 28-7, while the other Lion team of Steve Vance moved on by taking out Derek’s Cards. The games in Round 2 were much closer, with Harry and the Bucs going OT to beat the Redskins 27-21, Tim Dolan’s Dallas beating Steve’s Lions 29-26, Dan Long’s GB holding off Sam Berk’s Eagles 30-27, and Joe Betz holding off Greg Coulter’s Vikings 30-21. Only Doug’s Falcon’s 37-0 whitewash of the Panthers was a laugher.

Round 3 was easier on the nerves, as Tim Dolan (Dallas), Dan Long (GB), and Harry (TB) all won by 10 or more. That set up two of the greatest games in recent history. Tim Dolan took the bye with Dallas, so Harry and Dan set up to play GB vs TB. On paper, the Pack was a heavy 28 point favorite and came out playing like it. By halftime, Rogers had thrown three TD passes to bring the Packers to within 28-21. TB squeaked in a FG before the half ended to slow the onslaught, but it was now only 31-21 at the break. TB used a masterful ground game to keep zeros on the board in the third quarter. GB scored a TD but TB countered with a FG to make it 34-28 with a little over eight minutes left. Dan then scored on a breakaway run to make it 35-34 Pack with six minutes left. TB turned it over on downs and it looked bleak for the Bucs. but with 3:50 left and GB on the 35, a 3rd and 4 GB 5-yard run, was nullified by a holding penalty! GB punted, and TB drove to the GB 35 yard line, where Patrick Murray calmly nailed it thru the uprights for the win!

The NFC title game was more drama, as the spread this time was a mere 19 points! TB held the Cowboys to zero thru the first quarter, and looked in prime shape to play the spread into a win. Tim had other thoughts, as Dallas quickly scored ten points to cut the lead to 19-10 late in the half. Dallas drove to the TB 8, but on 4th down missed the FG to close the gap. TB then countered with a FG scoring drive of their own to make it 22-10 at the break. The only scoring in the 3rd quarter came via a Dallas FG, so it was now 22-13 entering the 4th. TB scored a TD early in the 4th, but Dallas countered with a score of their own to make it 29-20 with 6:50 left. Tim had the ball on the TB 35, threw the Long Pass…rolled a 15….and got picked off! TB drove for a FG, and Romo then followed that with a TD pass of 45 yards, but when the Onside Kick was coddled in by TB, the upset stood: 32-27 TB!

Another great year and everyone sends their kudos for the excellent detail and accuracy in making the charts to Ron Pisarz. Anyone who wants to get a leg up on the competition….contact Ron and get the charts early when they come out in April 2016!
