We’re Back …

The SSS blog has been mostly silent this year, and the lack of content might make you think that Robo has been hiding away from the SSS, too embarrassed at 1–9 (RIP #Rob0–10) to spread the news of the SSS and too repulsed by his teams’ performance to immerse himself in its stink.

But if that were true, would Robo resurrect the blog for week 11, introduce the new website (better rosters, updated charts and graphs, etc.) for week 13, and single-handedly (please volunteer if you’d like to assist) pump out the highest volume of articles seen in the SSS vicinity since Hags ran that digital content farm back in 2016?

Just wait — the next 6 weeks will speak for themselves.

Note: We made a few significant changes to playoff seeds last year:

  • Seeds #1–3 are division winners (by record) seeded by points
  • Seeds #4–6 are wild cards seeded by points
  • 4th and 5th spots are determined by record, 6th wild card is determined by points
  • Each week is re-seeded (Toilet Bowl included) so that the highest seeded team plays the lowest seeded team

12. Chicago Gunslingers (3–7)

SSSupremacy Rating: (Coming Week 12)

Points: 1020 (11th)

Playoff Spot: #10

— — — — — — — — — —

Yes, GUNS has some edges on robo (4 total points and 2 wins), but if we value even a fraction of ROS projection then GUNS slips ever-so-narrowly to 12 here. He’s got three weeks to avoid the bye-bye-BYE and if he does, three more to secure a single win of not-sacko relief. The editors aren’t confident he’ll avoid it.

11. AI Takeover (1–9)

SSSupremacy Rating: (Coming Week 12)

Points: 1016 (12th)

Projected Playoff Spot: #12 (bye-bye-BYE)

— — — — — — — — — —

#Rob1–9 just doesn’t have the same ring to it.

10. daddy’s boys (4–6)

SSSupremacy Rating: (Coming Week 12)

Points: 1027 (10th)

Projected Playoff Spot: #9

— — — — — — — — — —

The boys have been very good this year, scraping out 4 wins and even topping plow for the first time ever. Can they do it again and save daddy’s facehairs?

9. Boston Clamjammers (2–8)

SSSupremacy Rating: (Coming Week 12)

Points: 1056 (9th)

Projected Playoff Spot: #11 (bye-bye-BYE)

As the sack-to-sack sacko, Jamm can’t be feeling great about his positioning. He’ll need to pick it up to avoid rewriting SSS history books to replace hags as the doormat of the league.

8. cannibals (6–4)

SSSupremacy Rating: (Coming Week 12)

Points: 1133 (7th)

Projected Playoff Spot: #7

— — — — — — — — — —

After years and years of being better than his record and results would suggest, cannibals is having a very suspicious 2020. Points seem ok, record seems ok, but recent output and ROS outlook seem very precarious. Stay safe out there YUMY.

7. Bedwetters (5–5)

SSSupremacy Rating: (Coming Week 12)

Points: 1140 (6th)

Projected Playoff Spot: #6

— — — — — — — — — —

Somehow still clinging to the #6 spot, PISS will have to consider checking lineups from here on out. He’s one of the teams that could truly end up winning the league or getting sacko.

6. Plow (5–5)

SSSupremacy Rating: (Coming Week 12)

Points: 1130 (8th)

Projected Playoff Spot: #8

— — — — — — — — — —

So it’s great that plow isn’t dominating again this year, but the prospect of him sneaking in and somehow winning it all again is just too much for pigeon to bear.

5. ICARUS: From Dawn to Dusk (6–4)

SSSupremacy Rating: (Coming Week 12)

Points: 1189 (5th)

Projected Playoff Spot: #5

— — — — — — — — — —

So this is going about as expected. He mortgaged about as much of his franchise’s future as he has in real life mortgages, but instead of bringing back 30% on that money he’s got Antonio Brown and Jamison Crowder. A playoff appearance won’t make it worth it — he’ll needat least the semifinals to even get to the point of sending Rudy Giuliani to baselessly allege trade success to the preSSS.

4. The White Mamba (7–3)

SSSupremacy Rating: (Coming Week 12)

Points: 1194 (5th)

Projected Playoff Spot: #4

— — — — — — — — — —

This reminds me that it’s been a long time since I had to search for Scalabrine photos and there’s a small part of me that misses those days.

3. Revenge of the Sea Hags (7–3)

SSSupremacy Rating: (Coming Week 12)

Points: 1239 (2nd)

Projected Playoff Spot: #3

— — — — — — — — — —

Hags is here and he’s here to stay folks. A strong squad, lots of picks, and a newfound caution around plow are the pieces he needed to climb out of the basement.

2. Schrodinger’s Cat (6–4)

SSSupremacy Rating: (Coming Week 12)

Points: 1231 (2nd)

Projected Playoff Spot: #2

— — — — — — — — — —

Chod is somewhat of an (p)enigma in the SSS. Some seem to hate him (pigeon), some seem to hate (pigeon) that others don’t hate him (robo), some seem to emote (mamba) that others hate him (pigeon), and most are kind of confused by the whole thing. One thing that isn’t confusing is chod’s strength going into the playoffs and the inevitable playoff resolution to his (p)enigma. Let’s leave it in 2020 shall we?

1. Dead Pigeon (8–2)

SSSupremacy Rating: (Coming Week 12)

Points: 1378 (1st)

Projected Playoff Spot: #1 (BYE)

— — — — — — — — — —

Pigeon is the clear favorite this year and he’s been putting together all the pieces: Draft picks (Jacobs, Kyler), auctionees (Davante), UDFAs (Robinson), trades (Juju -> Keenan), reliable defenses (Steelers, Colts), and a social media strategy that AOC would be proud of. If you’re an aspiring GM, do what he’s done (and start players not on BYE). If you’re an aspiring champion, knock him off before he becomes a dynaSSSty.
