Players of the Week – Week 3
By Sean Dochney
Joe Guiffre – Shockers
The early season rust appears to have been shaken off for QBs around the JSGFFL as big games were put up by multiple players. Joe “Don’t call me Woody” Guiffre (any fans of 1950s folk singers around?) put up the best day of all the QBs around the league. Joe played 2 games and combined for 865 yards 15 touchdowns and 2 interceptions on the day as he led the Shockers to dominating victories over the Clam Slammers and the NJ Devils. His 2 nd game against the NJ Devils is what pushed him over the top to earn QB POTW. Guiffre went 28-40 for 485 yards and 9 TDs. Joe is now leading the league in passing yards and touchdowns with 1658 yards and 28 TDs. He has done this with only throwing 4 interceptions on the year.
Anthony Caputo – Strangers with Candy
By far the closest game of the week was between Strangers with Candy and Average Joes. Caputo would go toe to toe with Average Joes QB Brandon Koppenjan, as they both threw for over 400 yards on the day. At the end of the day, Strangers with Candy would hold onto a 47-46 win over the Average Joes and Anthony would earn the runner up spot for QB of the week. Anthony’s final stat line would end up being 25-43 for 486 yards 8 touchdowns and 2 interceptions.
Cam Blackwell – Strangers with Candy
Many receivers did more than enough that would normally earn them a spot in this week’s edition of POTW. Terron Maples, Chris McIntosh, Charlie Barbiere, and Zach Emmett all had huge games, but there is no controversy in WR of the week as none of these men put up the kind of game that Cam Blackwell did this week. Cam was very clearly Caputo’s favorite target for the day and Cam put up some real gaudy numbers in the close victory over Average Joes. Cam was a touchdown machine as he caught 8 passes that went for an astonishing 296 yards and 5 touchdowns.
Anthony Carlo – Rabid Squirrels
Carlo is quickly becoming a main fixture of Players of the Week. Carlo helped his Rabid Squirrels to a big 66-13 win over the Rattlers. He had 9 catches for 199 yards and 3 touchdowns on the week. Defenses around the league do not have an answer for Carlo as he is sitting in the top 3 in the league for receptions, yards, and touchdowns so far this season.
Steve Soletto – Shockers
Steve had another big game rushing the QB this week as his Shockers would go on to win their games in dominating fashion. Steve would end up with 5 sacks on the day and is now leading the league in sacks with 10. No QB ever feels comfortable when Steve is rushing in on defense.
Steve Bailey – Blue Jackets
The Blue Jackets blew out the Warriors 46-6 this past week. The Blue Jackets D was dominating all day and Steve was a big reason for this. He would end up with 2 interceptions on the day and is now in a 3 way tie for most picks in the league with 4.
