The WEST TEXAS 'MERICANS are winners here. They only made one move, and though it was a minor one, they got rid of Braaten who was in his contract year and is a premier backup QB. In return, they gained a decent rookie backup in Dominic Moss, as well as an 8th round pick.
TEAM YISUS also won. They got Derek Monroe, and got him to RFA status. They also got a backup quarterback who might need to play now that Diaz is failing. They secured two more draft picks from the Cherubs, and are pleased enough with Jerrold Gilpatrick's play in order to make him a starter.

Scaglione's shoulder collided with Diaz's throwing hand, and their heads collided. A flag was thrown, and Scaglione didn't return, but Diaz broke his right ring finger and suffered a concussion. Scaglione has been suspended for the next game and fined $100,000. But where does Yisus go from here?

Let me take you back to last season. It is the final week of the regular season. The Moon Monsters were facing Team Yisus. The Monsters led in overtime, 30-27. All the Monsters had to do was prevent a touchdown to win immediately, or give up a field goal to stay in the game. Team Yisus was on their own 33 yard line. It was 4th down and 9. A stop by the Monsters would win them the game, and since then they would have a higher pointspread, they would be in the super bowl. Thi would surprisingl put Team Yisus in last place. So now the Monsters attempted to stop Yisus from gaining 9 yards. Charles Diaz attempted to pass it to Ndidi Rennell, but the play was broken up by Buzz Blackmon. However, on the other side of th…Read more >
