Smooth Moves by BIG O

  • Even if you cried trying to win, you still won. And the Toyota Hall of Fame is proud of BIG O either way.
  • The 17.50 points scored by Paul Posluszny ranked eighth in the league in scoring this week and fourth for any player on BIG O this season.
  • Miss Cleo, is that you? The 8.02 points scored by Brandon Graham, who BIG O picked up this week, beat his projected point total of 4.63 by 73.2%.
  • Corey Graham scored a season-high 16.00 points and beat his scoring projection by 29.2%, which also is a season-high.
  • The 12.00 points scored by Johnathan Cyprien were a season-high.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Sometimes 98.30 is enough. Unfortunately, the Toyota Hall of Fame has confirmed this time it's a smaller number than 137.27.
  • After a season-low 2.50 points against a projected 9.56, Earl Thomas has now scored below his projection in every game this season.
  • Hate to point fingers for why a team loses, but RIGHT HERE. Jadeveon Clowney had a season-low 2.00 points against a projected 6.58 and scored below his projection for the second time this season.
  • In the midst of a season-low in scoring, Patrick Chung also did not meet his projected points (4.50 points scored versus 8.55 projected) for the second time this season.
  • Note to self: don't start a player when they're going to have their worst game of the season. Mychal Kendricks had a season-low 2.50 points against a projected 5.13 and underachieved for the second time this season.

What If

  • BIG O would be 3-0 if they played twin 2's Team every week.
  • BIG O would have beaten only one other team besides twin 2's Team this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? BIG O would have defeated twin 2's Team 136.38 - 96.63 had they played each other last week.
  • If they played the same schedule as twin 2's Team, BIG O would be 0-2.
  • BIG O would be 8-7 if they played every team every week.
  • twin 2's Team would have lost to three other teams besides BIG O this week.
  • twin 2's Team would be 0-2 if they played the same schedule as BIG O.
  • If they played every team every week, twin 2's Team would be 1-14.

He also cashed in a rushing carry for a score, giving him four touchdowns on the afternoon. In the 13 games that would follow in that ’92 campaign, Metcalf would only hit pay dirt a total of three more times.
