Two to six days later, and it theoretically could have been accurate; however, it would still likely not have been.

Turn of the year relevant? Christmas? Other holidays?

Could it have been accurate earlier? At the relevant day? One day later? More than six days later? Is there any time where it probably would be accurate?

Postseason? Game against the Jets? Relevant that the Pats had the Bye? Assuming the Jets game to be relevant, can we now determine for a fact whether it would have been accurate two to six days later?

Assuming the Jets game to be relevant, No to all of this - remember when I posted this puzzle. can we now determine for a fact whether it would have been accurate two to six days later? It would have only been accurate 2 to 6 days later.

Wow, this is going really slow. I'll try and give a pretty big hint, as I'm not ready to $poyle this one:

-The game was the January 2 game against Miami.
-One of the two relevant players is Julian Edelman.

Tom Brady relevant? Anything in here relevant? (Since I'm not sure how to interpret what I'm reading...I'm still at a loss about football)

Miami's loss to the Patriots relevant?

Miami's loss to the Patriots relevant? No

You know, I might as well.

**********SPOILER**********

On the day of the Miami-New England game (January 2), I was flying from CT to NC, so I couldn't watch the game. To keep me updated, my dad sent me text messages as to what was going on. One of these texts was something along the lines of "ellison just had a 40 yd catch and run, 1st and goal". I realized that my dad must have meant Julian Edelman, as the Patriots had no player on the team named Ellison, and "Edelman" was the only name close to that. (Don't worry, I wasn't texting on the plane; I was in the airport at the time.)

However, two days later, the Patriots signed a defensive lineman named Attiyah Ellison, before releasing him on the 8th. So I realized that the text message could have been accurate if the game had been played two to six days later, as there would have been an Ellison on the team; however, it probably would not have been accurate, as Ellison is a defensive lineman and Edelman is a wide receiver.

And the title: It was two acronyms: YAC and SMS. YAC signified a wide receiver (it means "yards after catch") and SMS pointed to a text message.
