2020-03-14 01:07:24 - S37 Recap/S38 PreviewReport Abuse

Is it possible to miss the playoffs after two consecutive years of making it and still have the most successful season in franchise history? That is the storyline this team is selling after coming up a game short of getting into the playoffs despite going 11-5 again, as DCW had done the previous two seasons.

S37 was the toughest schedule the Washingtonians have ever faced, and this squad proved it was capable of playing with all of the best in RZA. DCW played an incredible 11 games against teams that finished 8-8 or better and went 6-5 against them. This also included beating each NC division winner (going 4-1 against these squads) and beating both teams in the Elite Super Bowl. When taking into account the SC playoffs, DCW went 4-2 against the Elite Conference Finals qualifiers and notched a victory against each one.

The story of the season was the new star QB T. Okui putting the team on his back and leading the offense to some impressive stats on offense, and the break-out party of YA-product MLB L. Boren, who led a strong LB corp. Beyond these two units, however, the team showed some regressions in other aspects. The OL, which led the league in pancakes a season ago, slipped this season, and the DL and DBs struggled all season. In S36, Alanis led the team with 8 INTs whereas in S37, the entire defense combined for 7 INTs. The inability to force turnovers, too many missed tackles and blocks all contributed to the team missing the playoffs.

Earning team honors for S37 performances are as follows:

Team MVP: Okui (QB) for winning most game balls
Offensive MVP: Okui (QB) for most MVP points (O)
Defensive MVP: Boren (LB) for most MVP points (D)
Trojan Contributor: Zelený and Galloway (WRs) and Konvalinka (FB) for scoring the most TDs
IHOP Lineman: Baboram (OL) for recording the most pancakes
Harris Teeter Double-Bagger: Boren (LB) for recording the most sacks
DC Lotto Picker: Santana (CB)/Thawan (LB) for recording most interceptions
Best QB in Elite: Okui (1st)

DCW did make some noise in the SC playoffs, after completing another 15-0 season. For the first time in franchise history, the Washingtonians made it to the quarterfinals and notched perhaps the most impressive win with a 48-10 over the top ranked team in the game, Wilmersdorf Wadenbeisser.

Several players retired this season, including top WR Zelený, TE Voorde, FS Dimitrov, DE Loftsson, OC Suvorov and OT Baboram. Baboram surely will find his way into the team’s Hall of Fame; the former second-round pick was a six-time pancake leader (Suvorov, the next highest, was a three-time leader) and found himself on the All-Star roster for 30 games. Back-up and first YA promotee FB Centeno also retired.

The team did not get any help from its rookie class last season, and in fact, none of the draft picks are still on the roster. Like last season, the rookies are not expected to see much, if any, playing time this season. From the YA, WR Isidro Spinks, RB Rico Messina and FS Brent Baggett join the squad. The coaching staff is pretty high on all three and they should see limited time in a back-up capacity. And in a weak draft, the team managed to find three players that should provide some depth after losing so many veterans. In the first round, Safety Logan Hacker is pretty much a finished product and is more or less a place holder until more talented players come up in the system. But the team did find some potential contributors in the second round (TE Curt Bowers) and third round (CB Kenny Blais). More exciting, the team has a handful of YA players ready for promotion next season as the youth movement continues.

Speaking of the All-Star game, DCW became just the 10th team to beat the All-Stars in a full-tilt, no mercy game, winning 30-28, but the game was more one-sided that the final score reflected. DCW went up 30-14 with about 8:30 left in the game and the All-Stars rallied for two late TDs to make the score look close.

Despite winning the franchise's first ever Elite Playoff game, somehow the offseason generated as much excitement as the highly successful season.

The S36 season played out very much like S35, with DCW feasting on team's with sub-.500 records to go 11-5 again, and earn the final wild card spot again. The big change this time, however, was the Washingtonians no longer felt the weight of the spotlight and put together perhaps the best game in team history en route to a 30-0 win in the wild card round against the Chelt Nam Bobbers, a team that has had its way with DCW in every prior meeting. The momentum continued into the first quarter in the divisional round against behemoth San Diego Blitzkrieg. Everything was playing out as planned except for the Washingtonian's ability to find the end zone, but they led most of the first quarter, going up 6-0. But the Blitzkrieg scored a TD just before the end of the first quarter and then rallied for two fast TDs in the second quarter to knock the wind out of the underdog, who ultimately lost 38-12.

In the Super Cup, DCW went 15-0 in the regular season and put together an impressive playoff run winning in the first three rounds before losing to the Black Dragons in the fourth round. A third quarter collapse, where DCW was outscored 13-0 was the difference as the team lost 30-17. Much like in the Elite playoffs, the offense's inability to sustain drives and find the end zone cost the team.

Earning team honors for S36 performances are as follows:

Team MVP: Ostapowicz (QB) for winning most game balls
Offensive MVP: Ostapowicz (QB) for most MVP points (O)
Defensive MVP: Alanis (LB) for most MVP points (D)
Trojan Contributor: Zelený (WR) for scoring the most TDs
IHOP Lineman: Baboram (OL) for recording the most pancakes
Harris Teeter Double-Bagger: Thawan (LB) for recording the most sacks
DC Lotto Picker: Alanis (LB) for recording most interceptions
Gerber ROY award: Boren (LB) for best rookie performance
Best Elite OL: McCartney (2nd place)

The team captain for S37 are Ngahu (O) and Jana (D).

As the team looks to take the next step to become an Elite champion challenger, the ownership addressed the offense by bringing one of the best quarterbacks in the game, Takashi Okui, from the Michigan State Spartans. The QB play was inconsistent last season, and the hope is bringing in a star like Okui will be the missing piece. The skill and physical prowess can't be questioned, but others have pointed to Okui's prima donna status and the fact he has never won the big game before. But the ownership felt the potential outweighed the risks and signed him through S38.

The addition of Okui is about the only addition to the roster as a weak draft might not see a single player stay on the roster. The Youth Academy to see the promotion of WR Deon Leslie, QB Samual Rice and K Jared Wiggins. None of these three are likely to see playing time this season.

The big loss was the team's first ever draft pick, MLB Alanis. Alanis is a sure bet to make the team's Hall of Fame; he was the team's S35 MVP, six-time defensive MVP, three-time sack leader and seven-time interception leader. His storied career included time in Sea Devil 2, Sea Devil 1 and Elite. The team is very deep at the linebacker position, so there isn't expected to be much of a drop off, but his presence will be missed on the field.

The S35 DC Washingtonians ventured into rarified air, proving to be among the best teams in the world. The team earned the privileged reserved for an elite few: getting to compete in all three of the most prestigious playoffs: Super Cup, Champ of Champ and RZA Elite.

After rising above expectations and going 11-5 in the regular season, DCW received its first ever invite to the Elite playoffs, winning the final NC wild card spot. Some critics have pointed out that DCW benefited from a generous schedule (the team went 9-0 against teams with losing records and 2-5 against teams with winning records with both wins being narrow victories over rival Leeds Celtics), but as Coach Buckland is quick to respond, "There are no easy wins in Elite." The team didn't help defend Buckland's statement with a lackluster game against the Black Dragons, losing in the wild card round 34-10. But finishing second in the division means DCW will get another go at competing in Elite and washed away S33 memories of going 7-9.

For the second consecutive season, DCW went 14-1 in SC divisional play and made a deep playoff run. An exciting third round OT win against fellow Elite BobBoy Magpies set up a match with RZA legend Pete and his Guinness Consumers, but the offense struggled to find any rhythm in this one, losing 21-17 in the fourth round. Finally, in the CoC, DCW dispatched two other Elite teams to make it all the way to the semifinals where a slow start against eventual champions, OrangeCrush, ultimately ended the playoff run and S35. Trailing 20-0 at the half, the team regrouped and rallied in the second half making OC fans a bit nervous before coming up short, 32-21.

After the season ended, DCW challenged the All-Star team to an exhibition match, and despite being a heavy underdog, the Washingtonians battled through an exciting first half before taking control of the game in the 4th Qtr en route to a 38-24 victory. Fall so impressed the All-Star team that he was invited to join the team for five more games before officially retiring. Fall is only the second Washingtonian to be invited to play with the All-Stars and the first to spend his entire career in DC.

Earning team honors for S35 performances are as follows:

Team MVP: Alanis (LB) for winning most game balls
Offensive MVP: Ostapowicz (QB) for most MVP points (O)
Defensive MVP: Alanis (LB) for most MVP points (D)
Trojan Contributor: Weinstein (RB) for scoring the most TDs
IHOP Lineman: Baboram (OL) for recording the most pancakes
Harris Teeter Double-Bagger: Alanis (LBs) for recording the most sacks
DC Lotto Picker: Santana (CB) for recording most interceptions
Gerber ROY award: Lucas (LB) for best rookie performance

The S36 captains are Ngahu (WR, offense) and Heinrich (SF, defense).

Most the entire team returns to defend the Elite spot for another season, with only star RB Jahaur Fall retiring. Losing Fall will move more burden onto QB Ostapowicz, who had a so-so season last year. But with a stout offensive line, the team hopes the younger RBs will be ready to step up and contribute. The offense won't be getting much help from the rookie class, with most of the talent joining the LB corps. LB Lavern Boren is the blue-chipper of the group, and is expected to make an immediate impact harassing QBs. Joining him is fellow YA LB Kraig Serrano, who would be a more celebrated prospect most seasons if not for the presence of Boren. From the draft, first rounder Jason Farmer is a bit old for a rookie (23 years) but has the experience and physical tools to hang around, though it is not sure if he will stay at his natural position of LB or move somewhere else on defense. The final rookie of note is YA call-up OL Tracey Madden, who will benefit from a veteran corps in front of him to learn from. The other two draft picks, Allen Duncan (2nd) and Angus Montgomery (3rd) will have a hard time staying on this roster.

Losing only one player, the expectations are high on this season's squad, and once again, the play of QB Ostapowicz will determine just how much success this team will enjoy. A return to the playoffs and securing a third consecutive season in Elite are the goals, but will be a challenge to meet. Another competitive SC division also will test the team, but the expectations are to return to the SC playoffs.

Good luck to our Washingtonians, and let's have another fun, memorable season!

We are the Champions! For the first time since winning the SD 2.2 Super Bowl in S27, the DC Washingtonians won the big game, knocking off familiar rival, Dortmund Griffins, 19-10, in a defensive showcase. The championship also comes on the 25th anniversary of previous owner's most successful season when the Venice Panthers won the SD 1 Super Bowl in S9.

It was an impressive season for the Washingtonians who went 15-1 in the regular season with the lone blemish being a loss against former Elite sparring mate, the Baltimore Ravens. That four-point loss set aside, no team came closer than 17 points to DCW during the regular season and the team easily won the AC South division and earned the AC top seed. In the first two rounds of the playoffs, DCW overcame slow starts against two AC North opponents. First against Naprzód Marsz!, the offense sputtered for most the first half and the defense had difficulty getting off the field surrendering many time-consuming drives. Trailing 6-0, the offense finally put together a TD-scoring drive about midway through the second quarter to go up 7-6 and the defense came up with several big plays to hold on to a 20-6 win. In the conference championship, a game that will be replayed in the District for many years to come, DCW spotted the Michigan State Spartans a 21-0 lead and no one was playing well. But on the next drive, the team managed an important momentum-changing TD with less than a minute left in the half. That was followed by another TD drive to start the second half and turned this back into a game, trailing 21-14. MSU responded with another score to put DCW back in a two-score deficit, 28-14. Failing to score on the next drive and punting it deep into MSU territory, the team was hoping for a quick three-and-out to get the ball back. Instead, MSU methodically marched back down the field all the way to the DCW 12 before a game-saving INT by CB Terentiy Doronin breathed new life into team, which took the favorable field position after the 42-yard return to score another TD, now down 28-21. The defense got the stop on the next drive, and former Gerber ROY winner Unnikrishnan Narang took the ensuing punt 72 yards to the endzone to tie the game at 28. The defense continued to lock down the Spartans giving the ball to the offense with about 5:30 remaining and great field position. Needing only two minutes, QB Alois Pytlík, who was named tournament MVP, found WR Robert Galloway for an 8-yard TD pass to take the first and only lead in the game, 35-28. The Super Bowl win against Dortmund lacked the drama of the previous game, and for a change of pace, DCW rushed out to a 13-0 lead. But the inability to get TDs and settling for FGs kept the Griffins in the game and they got the score down to 13-10 midway through the third quarter. But a pair of K Leandro Cabral FGs sealed the win. For the game, Cabral nailed FGs of 56, 49, 57 and 52 yards proving to be a dangerous weapon.

In Super Cup play, the regular season win streak unsurprisingly came to an end...unsurprising because this was a tough division, but the team that beat them was indeed quite surprising. In three games against SD rival, Växjö Gladiators AFC, DCW won two with great ease, but lost the Super Cup game 17-12. The loss ended the win streak at 62 wins. The loss, however, was the team's only slip-up and they returned to the playoffs and advanced all the way to the third round before losing to the Styrian Bears.

The S34 players of note were as follows:

Team MVP: Pytlík (QB) for winning most game balls
Offensive MVP: Pytlík (QB) for most MVP points (O)
Defensive MVP: Schmidt (LB) for most MVP points (D)
Trojan Contributor: Zelený (WR) and Covington (TE) for scoring the most TDs
IHOP Lineman: Suvorov (OL) for recording the most pancakes
Harris Teeter Double-Bagger: Schmidt/Thawan (LBs) for recording the most sacks
DC Lotto Picker: Dae (CB) for recording most interceptions
Gerber ROY award: Judge (RB) for best rookie performance
SD 1 Tournament MVP: Pytlík (QB) for most tournament MVP points
SD region individual award: Cabral (K) best kicker in the league

The S35 team captains are Ngahu (WR) and Heinrich (SF). DCW welcomes a large rookie class, headlined by a free agent hire, QB Ionut Doros. He'll spend the season training to take over the team in a few seasons, but the team is high on him. The other player that has people excited is YA product LB Cameron Lucas. While buried a bit on the depth chart, he will get some playing time off the bench. The other YA players include CB Rigoberto Carson and SF Isiah Kirk on defense and RB Kelley Farnsworth on offense. The draft added two more potential starters, but while both are talented and lightning fast, both come with character issues. The first round pick, CB Jarvis Cannon, is a bit undersized, but is tough as nails. In the second round, WR Mitchell Embry bring the rare combination of strength and speed plus incredible hands that could make him a dominant player in the future. With almost the entire team returning from last year's championship squad, all of the rookies will have the luxury of easing into the mix.

The story of S35 will be dominated by how well does QB Bożydar Ostapowicz fill in the shoes of Pytlík. The team had hoped for another season or two from the former captain, but he conceded that the wear and tear was just too much. He was brought to this team to get them to Elite, and he achieved this twice. In addition to his one Elite season with DCW, he also played in three Elite seasons with the AS Roma Wolves, and he is a strong candidate to be DCW's first inductee into the hall of fame. Also retiring is the team's other former tournament MVP, LB Murat Schmidt, who was the star of the team's S27 SD 2.2 tournament run. The speedy LB could pressure the opposing QB while also providing pass coverage and back up the DL with run-stopping ability. All three skills were on display in his final season during which Schmidt posted career highs in sacks (16), INTs (3) and forced fumbles (2).

Despite the losses of these veterans, this DCW team is still a solid team headed into S35, but will they be good enough to have a better Elite showing than two seasons ago when the team went 7-9? Time will tell, but these guys won't be intimidated by anyone on their schedule. Similarly in SC play, the team faces another tough division but should be favored to win it; a return to the playoffs is expected out of this team. And as a Conference Championship winner, DCW returns to the CoC Cup and has a favorable first round draw.
