MINNESOTA SIGNS EDINGER

After going 0/2 on Field Goals, and a 96.2% PAT percentage and 67.1% FG percentage after 4 seasons, the Minnesota Fighting Pike have released Kicker Alex Trlica. The 6'0 220 Texas Tech product may still have a career in the FIFL given his abilities.

In his place, the Pike have signed veteran Kicker Paul Edinger. Edinger ranks 6th all-time in FIFL history in kicker points.

One record that could be broken: Kicker Luzayadio holds the record for most Tackles as a Kicker with 59. Alcorn and Hamilton are at 58, with Edinger at 57.

"TO" SETS SIGHTS AT PR RECORD

Pittsburgh WR Terrell Owens has been at the WR2 slot most of his career. At the WR2 slot, this has given him a good number of chances at running up some Punt Return numbers.

Below are the top 5 in FIFL history in Punt Returns. Averaging 34 returns a season, Owens would need at last two more seasons to top the record set by Rashied Davis in returns, but possibly more if he wants to catch him on yards. One of the best all-time was Chris Horn who had his career cut short. Who knows where he would have ended had he played as long as the others.

TRAINING CAMP COMING UP

The draft is completed and FA picks are nearly complete. Time for teams to get their rosters settled at 53 and training camp numbers in.

Training camp is positional... fill out the chart and email the commish. Maximum is 65 and minimum is 5.


COMMAND SELECT LB HARRISON WITH FIRST PICK

The Kansas City Command selected LB James Harrison with the first pick of the 2030 FIFL Draft. The Command are rebuilding off a 1-13 season after moving from Colorado where the Wildcats had a 205-226-3 record and 2-0 in Gold Cups over 30 seasons.

Harrison surprisingly is the first LB ever selected #1 overall in the draft going back to 2000. QB Andre Ware was the first ever QB selected #1 back in 2028 by Rochester, so that just leaves a Center, Fullback, Kicker or Punter, which unlikley the last 3 will ever happen.

SAP Center (13,500), San Jose, CA
 

Summary: The Connecticut Coyotees defeated the San Jose SaberCats 23-20 to win Gold Cup XXXI, and their first Gold Cup in ranchise history. Trailing 20-16, Connecticut and QB Keith Null went on a 9-play, 66-yard drive and scored on a 5-yard TD pass from Null to WR Kassim Osgood with 0:13 left in the game. Null was 24 of 29 for 253 yards and 3 TD's in the game. Passing was the only thing Connecticut could do as the San Jose defense stuffed Connecticut's running game all day for a total of -1 yards. San Jose had previously taken the lead after trailing 16-10 earlier in the 4th quarter. HB John Clay was on his way to Gold Cup MVP as he ran 30 times for 138 yards and a TD while catching 9 passes for 88 yards and a receiving TD. San Jose controlled the ball against Connecticut as well, only losing it in the final moments.

NEED SOME HELP WITH TEAM PROFILES????

Since you all don't have the game, and perhaps need some help with what a Dallas Offensive Profile does, or a Bears Defensive Profile really does, I have supplied some examples of what would happen if I ran the NFL teams and what the numbers would be.

Basically, ran 3 seasons using the NFL96 teams... runs 1 and 2 had no injury's set, while run 3 did. Also, season 3, I updated the recordbook on a weekly basis.Use these tools to your advantage. CLICK HERE to view.
