2012 Brothers Keeper Champion: The Year of Yer X-MOM

After finishing the regular season with a three game losing streak, Yer X-MOM (the 2011 Brothers Keeper Toilet Bowl Winner) got a bye week in the first round of the playoffs. Just the break with the past that was needed for two, close, last man remaining wins. Brothers Keeper has a new 3-Time Champion: Yer X-MOM (P Smith).

Yankinfowlsandfeline (J Smith) had defeated Yer X-MOM in week 4 and week 13 of the regular season. Yer X-MOM's nemesis of 2012. No other team had beaten Yer X-MOM twice in 2012. He had a chance for revenge on the biggest stage of all: the 2012 Brothers Keeper Championship Game. There is no other way to

The championship began with a large lead for Yer X-MOM after Matt Ryan's stellar game on Saturday night. However, Yankinfowlsandfeline (J Smith) regained the upper hand with a better performance by Aaron Rodgers. Other than the QBs, the rest of the players on both teams underperformed for the most part. Sure Randall Cobb and Joique Bell scored 13+ points but most other players did very little to note. All that remained after the late afternoon games was about a 25 point lead held by Yankinfowlsandfeline with only a lone RB left to play for Yer X-MOM ( P Smith).

Marshawn Lynch was drafted in the 8th round in 2011 by Yankinfowlsandfeline. After a terrible start to the year he was dropped. Yer X-MOM picked him up off the waivers and held on to him but did not start him throughout the rest of 2011. Lynch was started so few times that he was eligible as a developmental keeper for Yer X-MOM in 2012 worth only an 8th round pick. Yer X-MOM held on to the RB and was rewarded for it in the 2012 championship game against the man who dropped Lynch the year before. Loyalty is a wonderful thing. Payback even sweeter. Yer X-MOM going from worst to first is also significant.

Congratulations to all of this year's league participants. It was very competitive. Good luck this offseason.
