Thread: Super Bowl VI Preview/Predictions

    Super Bowl VI Preview/Predictions

    THE game is here boys. THE game is the one that all 24 owners have set their sights on. THE game is where the most deserving of teams play. THE game is the one that truly separates the boys from the men and the pretenders from the contenders. THE game this season is on Thursday, December 22, 2011 at Lucas Oil Field.

    Two of the most storied franchises of the Gridiron Junkies Football League will once again face off in this monumental game; Super Bowl VI. THE game will feature the Little Rock Razors (16-2) vs. the Los Angeles Playas (18-0).

    This matchup truly pits the best two teams of the 2011 GJFL season. The #1 ranked team from the Lombardi and Levy Conferences. This game will be a dogfight until the very end. Both teams possess arguably the most balanced teams through all facets of the game in GJFL history. The old adage is true in this regard, numbers never lie; and the numbers are staggering.

    **DEFENSIVE RANKS**

    On the defensive side of the ball, the Little Rock Razors quietly ranked #1 in overall defense. The Razors ranked #2 against the run allowing 76.3 Y/G, #2 against the pass allowing 170.9 Y/G, and #2 in least points per game allowed with 14.6. If that wasn’t impressive enough, the Razors also posted #1 in INT’s and #1 in turnovers while amassing #9 most sacks in the league.

    On the defensive side of the ball, the Los Angeles Playas dominated their competition all season. The Playas ranked #2 in overall defense. The Playas ranked #1 against the run allowing 72.5 Y/G, #5 against the pass allowing 191.4 Y/G, and #1 in least points per game allowed with 9.0. The Playas not only lead the league in least points allowed per game but they were #9 in turnovers, #1 in stopping teams in the red zone while amassing #1 most sacks in the league.

    **OFFENSIVE RANKS**

    In a game where the defenses are mind-boggling great, offense needs to be prevalent in order for some points to be scored. Fortunately for us, these teams’ offenses are arguably better than their defenses. How could this be? Well…

    On the offensive side of the ball, the Razors ranked #4 overall averaging 376.8 Y/G, #7 in points per game with 24.9, #16 in rushing with 105.1 Y/G, #3 in passing with 271.8 Y/G, and #4 in passing rating.

    On the offensive side of the ball, the Playas ranked #3 overall averaging 377.0 Y/G, #1 in points per game with 31.4, #1 in rushing with 179.1 Y/G, #17 in passing with 197.9 Y/G, #1 in passing rating, and #1 in fewest turnovers.

    **PREDICTION FOR SUPER BOWL VI**

    The Razors and Playas coasted for much of this season as evidenced by their respective 14-2 and 16-0 regular season marks and their identical 2-0 playoff run thus far.

    The two teams played 6 common opponents resulting in the following:

    Pittsburgh – Razors w 12-10, Playas w 13-6
    Philadelphia – Razors w 34-17, Playas w 26-6
    Erie - Razors w 16-14, Playas w 31-0
    Long Island - Razors w 32-6, Playas w 31-3
    Rochester - Razors w 30-13, Playas w 41-17
    Lake Shore Dr - Razors w 30-27, Playas w 41-6

    As you can see, the two teams beat the same 6 opponents without a glitch, however, none of the 6 teams made the playoffs.

    Keys to victory (for the RAZORS):

    1.) Phillip Rivers needs to meet his average of 271 yards per game if not surpass it;
    2.) Offensive Line led by Jahri Evans and Jordan Gross need to limit the #1 defense in sacks to no more than 3;
    3.) The offensive gameplan should call for some more play action and draw plays from Peyton Hillis and Benjarvis Green-Eillis to limit #1 sack defense from zeroing in on Rivers on every play;
    4.) #1 defense needs to play man-to-man on occassion to help shut down Mike Williams and Greg Jennings;
    5.) #2 against the run will need to key runner to stop Arian Foster but most importantly, the receptions out of the backfield;
    6.) Win the time of possession battle.

    Keys to victory (for the PLAYAS):

    1.) Tony Romo needs to improve on his 195 yards per game average against this #2 pass defense;
    2.) Keep Jahvid Best fresh as Arian Foster might need a few more breathers than usual;
    3.) Offensive gameplan should call for more passes with their LB's in coverage which would get Brandon Pettigrew and Jason Avant just as lethal as Mike Williams and Greg Jennings;
    4.) Blitz, Blitz, and more Blitz;
    5.) Limit Phillip Rivers from too many offensive touches;
    6.) Win the turnover battle.

    Who will this game? Will it be the defending champs and two-time championship winner in LA? The same defending champs looking to be the first ever team to go undefeated in a GJFL season. Or will it be the team in LR looking for their second GJFL championship? This is very hard to predict but this clash of the Titans will go to the...wait for it...wait for it...wait for it...

    the RAZORS...barely but...Razors 21, Playas 17.

    DISCUSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Stalwart (before I forget, great write up as usual), I started to think about player rankings and how we matched up. It's surprisingly close, Playa's LB's are freakin amazing. On paper, I think my team is better on offense but Playa's running game is so !@$#!$!$ good, can it be stopped? And will that be the difference in this game.
    On defense, his front 7 beats mine while I have the bigger advantage at DB. Problem is, I have to stop the run or I'm done.
    I'm afraid Playa's run game, blitzkrieg LB's and better game planning skills may spell my doom. On paper though, I should give him a run. And if its tight and I have the ball last, Rivers seems to come through more often than not.

    I tried to do a quick breakdown by position below. I need to hire a sniper to take out Foster.

    Offense:
    QB – advantage Razors
    Romo vs Rivers

    RB – advantage Playa
    Foster vs Hillis

    WR – advantage Razors
    Jennings, D Jackson and Mike Williams vs A Johnson, Welker and Amendola

    TE – advantage Razors
    Pettigrew vs Witten

    OL – advantage Razors
    9-8-7-6-8 Playa total 38
    9-10-8-6.5-8 Razors total 41.5

    Defense:
    DL – advantage Playa
    P 9-7-7-7 vs R 8-8-7-6

    LB – Super advantage Playa
    P 10-8-9 vs R 8-8-7

    DB – advantage Razor
    P 7-7-8-7 vs R 9-8-8-7

    Total defensive ranking #'s:
    Playa 86
    Razors 84

    Game Planning skills - super advantage Playa

    I will agree that the RAZORS might have a very slight edge in the statistical categories and matchup breakdowns. However, MR INTANGIBLE immeasurably rests with the PLAYAS. For that reason is why the PLAYAS complete the undefeated season by defeating the RAZORS 20-19.

    FANTASTIC write-up maybe the best one yet!

    Scarry how similar these two teams are and how far the rest of the GJFL is from them!

    Well done man, I love reading these things.

    The ultimate advantage is always with playa, as ive said before the only person who knows the game better is the guy who created it. Unfortunately that makes for an intimidating task playing him, for anyone.

    Both teams are STACKED with talent, Rick is one of the elite few to have won a title.....and have a very well built/run team that is capable of contending every season. Playa's record goes without saying.

    My heart would like to see Rick win it, as well.....to be honest....Im sick of seeing Playa kick the **** out of everyone. My head tells me that while Rick's team is more than capable of beating LA, the gameplanning will hurt him....as it does everyone against Playa.

    This is the first year ive seen a lot more teams come closer to nudging staking their claims to divisions/conferences which is awesome, I was very happy to see teams so much more competitive.

    I believe Playa add's another title, I will be rooting for the Razors....however I am going to call it Playas 24 Razors 17.

    Oh shut it Playa, you know nobody likes to see a team go undefeated. Just like we were all so happy to see KC upset GB, we'd be just as happy to see LR upset LA. Hicks against the gays, moonshine verses wine, Old Milwaukee (you know it as the beast) takes on michelob ultra, I carry the standard for the little people, as we rise to slay the giant.
