Figured it would be a good time to start checking on how players of some minor renown are doing in the UFL.
At quarterback, Brooks Bollinger is having a pretty fantastic season, averaging 8.9 yards per attempt while completing 68.3 percent of his passes, and throwing 11 touchdowns against two picks. J.P. Losman is right behind him, and then there's a big gap before the rest of the league shows up.
Cory Ross leads the league in rushing yards, but he's got 32 more carries than anyone else in the league; he's averaging only 3.9 yards per carry. DeDe Dorsey is second, and has a gaudy 8.5 YPC to show off (albeit with 71 yards coming one one carry).
Bollinger's big receiver is former Giants practice squadder Taye Biddle; he's tied for the league lead with Craphonso Thorpe at 19 catches, but he has 352 receiving yards to Thorpe's 191, which is second in the league.

"Last team with the ball wins" is a cliche, but sometimes cliches are the best way to get across the central narrative of an important game. If you like great quarterback play, you have to watch the NFC Championship Game.
