I know I have mentioned the winners of the Pro vs Joes in an earlier post but I just had to bring it up one more time.
Did a Pro Finally Win Pros vs. Joes?
A pro has never won the Pros vs. Joes Challenge. No, seriously, no pro has ever won it. 2009 was the first year won by Joe Dellzenero. Then Les Sandlin won in 2010. Jason Tapley took it down in 2011. And finally Danny Mueller won in 2012. So luck would even out and a pro would finally win in this, the fifth season, right? Wrong again! High stakes player and "Joe" Chris Banks dominated his league and the overall leaderboard scoring an outrageous 3194.85 points to average 199.68 points. To be fair to the pros they did win three of the six leagues:
- "Tecmo Bowl" League #1 - Joe - Jeff Tirabassi - Cornfins P's vs. J's - 2835.8
- "Madden" League #2 - Joe - Wayne Ellis - Coltsfan - 2849.8
- "SportsTalk" League #3 - Joe - Chris Banks - Cobra Kai - 3194.85
- "NFL Fever" League #4 - Pro - Kevin English - DraftSharks.com - 2743
- "NFL2K" League #5 - Pro - Jim Day - FantasyTaz.com - 2881.45
- "Mutant" League #6 - Pro - Micah James - FantasyInsights.com - 2799.2 (My league where I cam in 8th)
I can only hope the FFPC does the PvJ again. It is a great contest!
