Power Rankings

1. Team Kugler (Schweitzer Title) – 3-0 

Team Kugler is the obvious #1 following Week 4. They got their most impressive W to date.. Winning 34-7. It wasn’t just the score – but the opponent – they destroyed 2x Defending Champs Team Jimenez on Thursday Night. It wasn’t even close. QB Anthony Kopp accounted for 4 TDs in this one, with 3 coming through the air. Eric Hennessey and Dan O’Neill both hauled in a TD on the night as well.  These guys look to keep up the hot streak here on Oct. 19 against new #2 Team Elisco in what will be The Bucket List Game of the Week!

 

2. Team Elisco (SLA Insurance) – 3-1

Team Elisco is up a couple of spots this week following their huge Win over former #1 Team Apuli. They won 21-18 against Team Apuli, dishing them their first Loss, and the Game was not as close as the score would indicate. Just a great Team effort by them. QB Cody Davis tossed a couple of TDs in this one — to David Shechtman and Brian Gutt. They now turn their attention to their 5th Game, which will be against new #1 Team Kugler in The Bucket List Game of the Week.  Can they de-throne #1 in two straight Games to claim the #1 spot for themselves?

 

3. Team Tickman (Chicago Trolley) – 3-1 

Team Tickman picked up their 3rd Win of the season in Week 4 and it was a really nice bounce back after Losing in Week 3 to #1 Team Kugler by a few Touchdowns. Their Defense flew around on Thursday Night – and shutout a really good in Offense in Team Saltzberg. QB Andrew Sledd threw 2 TDs and hit Kyle Lewis + Rob Heroux in the endzone for those scores. They look to get back on a winning streak, with their next Game coming against Team Rudy, who will be fresh off their first W of the Season.

 

4. Team Apuli (Hakimian Imports) – 2-1

Team Apuli drops out of the #1 spot following their Loss to Team Elisco in Week 4. They Lost 21-18 – just couldn’t get a key stop when they needed it. QB Andy Cohen did throw 3 TDs in this one.. This group always seems to bounce back fast and will not dwell on the Loss. They are too talented to stay down for long. On Oct. 19 they will try to get some Revenge on past Playoff Losses when they take on 2x Defending Champs Team Jimenez.

 

5. Team Saltzberg (Live Clean CHI) – 2-2

Rounding out the Top-5 this week is Team Saltzberg. They fall a few spots following their Loss to new #3 Team Tickman. Their Offense just couldn’t get it going against a very fast Tickman Defense. These guys are very good though and have shown that they have the ability to bounce back quickly following  a Loss. That is exactly what they will try to do when they take on the winless Team Barbati on Oct. 19.

 

Rest of the Pack (Alphabetical Order)

Team Barbati (Dr. Jacob D.D.S.) – 0-4

Team Barbati is getting closer. They didn’t breakthrough for the Win but their Offense finally got going on Thursday Night. They Lost 26-2o to Team Rudy, but this is something they can build upon here. QB Jack Murphy tossed a TD and ran in 2 more on the ground. Brian Pfeiffer hauled in his first TD of the Season. Expect a 2nd half surge from these guys. They look to pick up their first W against #5 Team Saltzberg on Oct. 19.

 

Team Jimenez (Karyn Collection) – 1-3

The 2x Defending Champs are struggling right now – but this is nothing we have not seen from them before. They fell in lopsided fashion to #1 Team Kugler on Thursday Night. Again, we are used to seeing them sputter in Regular Season before turning on the jets come Playoff time. This is the norm. Until we see them fall in the Playoffs, can’t hit the panic button. They take on old Rivals #4 Team Apuli in their fifth Game of the Season.

 

Team Rudy (The Bucket List) – 1-3

Team Rudy got their first W of the Season on Thursday Night, edging out Team Barbati 26-20. This is exactly what they needed to turn their season around. They still have an entire second half to play and now have some momentum on their side. Captain and QB Dillon Rudy threw 4 TDs in the Win and ALL OF THEM went to Skyler Norris, who surely made his presence felt on this night. This combo could not be contained. They look to keep it up against #3 Team Tickman, who these guys know very well. That should be a fun one!

 

That’s it for Week 4. Good Luck in Week on Oct. 19! Go Cubs!
