  Plumbing catastrophe
Our hearts and prayers are with the good people of Texas.

But I can't help but to think this could have all been avoided if Jerry Jones had used a giant plunger to unclog the drain before that giant toilet known as Texas Stadium had overflowed and caused all that damage.

Don't play in the puddles boys and girls.

Jeff's Pro Bowl Picks

by jeff beyel

QB-Tom Brady-
LA Rams-Set new standard with 5231 yards and was secind in league in TD passes with 45. After several seasons of unfulfilled promise, Brady hit it big for 14-2 Rams.

RB-Doug Martin-
Seattle Seahawks-I know, what about Tennessee great Adrian Peterson? AP led league in rushing with 1616 yards and 9 TDs but Martin came over to Seattle from Cleveland and his presence really pushed the 'Hawks to the next level and a championship. Martin would rush for 1450 yards, 15 TDs, and had a 5.1 YPC average.

WR-Julio Jones-
Atlanta Falons-Jones was brilliant once again piling up a league best 1934 yards and 25 TDs! He also averaged some 17.3 YPC.

TE-Rob Gronkowski-
LA Rams-Tough category but Gronk tied for TDs among tight ends and grabbed 59 balls for 978 yards and a staggering 16.6 YPV average.

T-Sebastian Vollmer-
Arizona Cardinals-Vollmer opened 24 holes and did not allow a sack all season while having just 4 bad blocks.

G-Marhsall Yanda-
Denver Broncos-The perennial star guard had another sparkling season posting a stunning 33 holes, 2 sacks, and 0 (that's right) bad blocks. Yanda remains the gold standard at the position.

C-Ryan Kalil-Indianapolis
Colts-A very tough category but Kalil had 19 holes and allowed just 1 sack while also having just 1 bad block for the Colts.


DT-Aaron Donald-
Cleveland Browns-What a stud this guy is...11 sacks, 15 stuffs, 17 hurries, 1 forced fumble. There were others right there but he was the best over-all.

DE-Muhammad Wilkerson-
New Orleans Saints- 17 sacks, 24 hurries, and 8 deflections all led league. Add in 4 forced fumbles and ya have the complete package.

OLB-Robert Mathis-Indianapolis
Colts-Broke own record for sacks with 23. Was also second in hurries with 19. There are some very deserving players at this position including the Giants' Kalil Mack, Buffalo's Vonn Miller, and several others.

MLB-David Harris-
New York Giants-What a year Harris had from the inside recording 6 sacks, 6 hurries, 12 stuffs, and 12 deflections to register an outstanding over-all slate.

CB-Ryan Logan-
New York Giants-Logan quietly had a terrific year sniping 6 balls, deflecting 15 passes, and allowing just 50.8% completions on balls his way.

S-Marcus Gilchrist-
Los Angeles Rams-Part of a super Ram secondary, Gilchrist limited passes his way to just a 40.3 completion rate while snagging 3 picks and tallying 11 deflections.


KR-Dwayen Harris-
Detroit Lions- Some dynamic returners this season but Harris took 44 back at a 29+ average and a TD.

PR-Travis Benjamin-
New Orleans Saints-Another tough call but Benjamin took back 31 punts at a 10/7 average and took one to the house.

K-Mason Crosby-
LA Rams-Crosby nailed 32 of 43 filed goals and hit on all 67 PATS enroute to compiling a league best 163 poimts.

P-Sam Martin-
Philadelphia Eagles- 34 of his 74 (46%) punts were inside the 20 and he did not get a ball blocked all season.

  Miami enthusiasm at all time High
Earlier this season and after Jeff Beyel took over the Dolphins, Sun Life Stadium finally broke the record for loudest crowd when a season ticket holder sneezed while clapping.

On a side note... coach and general manager Jeff Beyel is working on getting the team's last Super Bowl team picture transferred from black and white to color.

  Interview with Super Bowl Winner, Jamey Dilbeck
Q) How does it feel to win your first Super Bowl in Paydirt?

A) Sweet! This is my first championship in any football league of any kind and I can't imagine tougher opponents throughout the entire year to compete against.
Q) What did you do to scout the tough Vikings, and what did you see that you could exploit, or strengths you saw of his you needed to avoid?

A) I knew he could put yards on the board so somehow I had to grab as much clock time as I could with my running game. It had pulled me out of the fire again and again all season long. Picking up RB Doug Martin in a midseason trade allowed me to dictate the flow of most games. I knew my WRs, DeAndre Hopkins and Larry Fitzgerald, could be counted on to be in on practically every down with 10+ durability ratings. Fitz grinding out tough short yardage catches and Hopkins blowing by the secondary coverage as he ran wild for 5 TD receptions.

I knew my teams' capabilities well enough after playing almost a perfect season that I didn't really prepare for the Vikings as much as I prepared to play my game. I had used a bend but don't break defense all year long - but Eric almost broke it enough to win.
Q) What can Paydirt do for season 5 to improve?

A) More radio shows, something weekly to bring out more owners to the web site (like Jeff's weekly picks - I love those!), players of the week? use the vote section for POTW voting.

RB: Minimum of 3
HB/TE: Minimum of 3
WR: Minimum of 4
OL: C = Min of 2  G,T = Min of 3

  Tony Romo bumped into RGIII earlier in the week. The resulting injury caused both to be laid up in the hospital for 3 weeks with broken bones.

In other news, Len can finally stop holding and hoping. It looks like PAFL free agency for Tony, then off to do play by play with Jim Nantz.

Hey Len, maybe Phil Sims will un-retire and lead the Paydirt Cowboys to victory.
