Filed under: POD Fantasy Football League Update: Back-To-Back Titles


For the second consecutive year, I have won the Pride of Detroit Fantasy Football League. A year ago I defeated Nate D. in the finals, and this year I beat latif by a score of 103-75. I had an enormous cushion going into Tuesday night's game between the Vikings and Eagles, but he had Michael Vick, Lesean McCoy and the Eagles D/ST. I had Percy Harvin, but I was definitely worried that Vick and company would have a big day and erase my lead. As it turns out, that didn't even come close to happening, allowing me to go back-to-back as champion of the POD FFL.

Here is a look at how the playoffs played out this year:

Round 1

(1) Hyperion Ecta - BYE
(2) DrewsLions - BYE

(3) Sean Yuille (a.k.a. Better Than Mayhew) defeated (6) SGDBW90, 116-73
(5) latif defeated (4) BennieBladesFan, 99-78


(5) latif defeated (1) Hyperion Ecta, 98-86
(3) Sean Yuille defeated (2) DrewsLions,108-94


(3) Sean Yuille defeated (5) latif, 103-75
