Heading into the postseason

We didn't do so bad for ourselves. Ended up 3rd out of 8 and off to the playoffs. Despite the early problems with our roster, we had a solid team by the end of the season (all rankings are based off of ESPN earned points as of this Tuesday):

Two top-5 quarterbacks (#3 Rodgers and #5 Rivers)
Three of the top 6 running backs (#1 Forte, #5 Barber, #6 Williams)
Top-ranked Ravens defense/special teams
Top-5 tight end (#4 Cooley) and kicker (#5 Longwell)

Really the only place we did just okay was with the wide receivers, and even then we still ended up with #5, 6, 7 and 11 in the rankings.

Plus, if you look at the top 15 scorers in our league - we've got five of them. No one else in our league has more than two. If only we had managed to get this roster straight out of the draft!

Thesis has been sent to the committee, and I'm submitting the requested writing sample for my job interview process tomorrow. Onward and upward!
