I plan on playing a west-coast style ball control offense. A scheme that Bill Walsh pioneered under Paul Brown in his Bengals days. Steve Young had high marks for passing percentage and TD to interception ratio. Berry, Smith and Sharpe had good hands. I have Hayes when I need to stretch the field.

All my O-linemen were renowned run blockers. The Smiths, Sharpe and Berry were all great downfield blockers with should add to my rushing totals.

For the running game Sanders game wasn't predicated on having a Fullback blocking for him Csonka can form a thunder and lightning combo like he did in Miami with Merc Morris and Jim Kiick.

Haynes and Cribbs should give me a short field.


They should be well rested given my running game and the lack of turnovers should keep them on long fields.

Unfortunately I lack the sure fire way to stop Elway: Dan Reeves. But I have Too Tall Jones. People forget how dominant he was, his 100 sacks came playing in the QB's face coming from the left side of the line at 6'10" he had a long reach to bat down passes and wrap up the QB.

I will have my players mock Shawne Merrimen's Lights-out dance to distract LT.

I have Fletcher as a 3rd and long specialist and a fifth DL for jumbo fronts.

Without facing a kicker or punter this one should be a rather easy one for Memphis to win

In deference to JCD let's assume he was able to fill those spots.

Sanders, defense lifts Memphis over Pittsburgh

Memphis (AP)--Barry Sanders had 87 yards and a touchdown while the suffocating Memphis defense held the Maulers off the board for 56 minutes in a 23-7 win.

The first quarter was scoreless as both defenses limited ball movement. Michael Strahan and Cornelius Bennett registered sacked for Pittsburgh, who limited the Showboats offense to just 1 first down, while the Memphis defense was equally up to the task, with Chuck Howley forcing a LaDainian Tomlinson fumble after John Elway moved the Maulers into Memphis territory.

In the second quarter, a Paul Krause interception of Elway set the Showboats up at the Pittsburgh 31. Five plays later, Sanders punched in a 6 yard touchdown to give the Showboats the lead.

After several more punts by both teams, the Showboats offense put forth a 83 yard drive starting deep in their own territory, culminating in a Jason Elam field goal as the half ended as they were unable to score from inside the 10 yard line. Steve Young was 6/7 on the drive, connecting three times with Shannon Sharpe.

After the half, it was more of the same for the Maulers offense. Unable to move the ball on the ground as Tomlinson finished with just 45 yards on 16 carries, they became one-dimensional relying on Elway's arm and the Memphis pass defense stood tall as Elway was unable to move the ball past midfield until late in the fourth quarter. Too Tall Jones and Bob Lilly each recorded a pair of sacks.

The Showboats offense would add a pair of field goals to the board in the third frame as Young moved the ball efficiently down the field. In the fourth quarter, a deep strike of 61 yards from Young to Hayes would extend the lead to 23-0.

The late Pittsburgh score came courtesy of Kellen Winslow Sr, who had 3 catches for 55 yards on the drive including a 21 yard TD pass as Elway finally managed to solve the Showboats pass defense. However, the Showboats were able to run out the clock with Sanders to prevent a late comeback try.

With the victory, the Showboats advance to the Divisional round where they will host the San Francisco 49ers.
