@Ragman,
Sorry, but I just looked over my picks again and see that I picked far too many road teams to beat the homeboys. I gotta make some changes 'cause statistically 12 road teams beating homies CAN'T be right.

Will I act as my own worst enemy?
Here are my revisions:

Jax. Jags beat Buffalo Bills* @ Jacksonville
GB Packers* beat Det. Lions @ Detroit
KC Chiefs beat Oak. Raiders @ KC
Minn Vikes beat Ind. Colts @ Minn.
Car. Panthers * beat Chic. Bears* @ Carolina
NY Giants * beat St. L. Rams* @ St Louis
N.O. Saints* beat Wash. Skins* @ Wash
Cinci. Bengals beat Tenn. Titans @ Cincinnati

Late Games, 9/14:
TB Bucs beat Atl. Falcons @ TB
Seattle Seahawks beat SF 49ers @ Seattle
NE Pats* beat NY Jets* @ NY (P's D shows strength against Favre vert game )
SD Chargers beat Denver Broncos* @ Denver
AZ Cards* beat Miami Dolphins @ Arizona (Chad WHO?)
Balt. Ravens* beat Texans @ Houston (combined scores under 20 pts)

Sunday Night Game, 9/14:
Pitt Steelers beat Cleve. Browns @ Cleveland

Monday Night Game, 9/15:
Dallas Cowboys * beat Phil. Eagles* @ Dallas 27-20
Tie-breaker score

I never did find my tally sheet but I am now up to date with yall's picks. 17 pickers so far. We are missing Rockhead (who has said he is working on his), LionTamer, Cowdoc (who posts after the end of the workweek) and Maporsche.
We also need some corrections from Alex.

I note that one of the Sunday games is Baltimore @ Houston. Hurricane Ike looks like it will hit land very near Houston Saturday morning. I haven't heard any plans to change the game's time or place in the event there is damage to the infrastructure or mass movement of displaced residents.
One of our players, Edgar, lives in Houston.

@realjohnboy,
I just took this info off a local channel's website:


HSID has canceled Friday and Saturday football. The Astros may move Friday night's game to 1:05pm. The Houston Cougars have moved their game with Air Force to the SMU campus in Dallas with a 2:30pm start.
And as for the Texans, they're just waiting to see. The ravens may try to fly into Houston Friday rather than Saturday for Sunday's game. But right now, it's all up in the air depending where Ike goes.

Houston is actually 40-50 miles inland which should modify the full brunt of a bad one. With a direct hit they'll get wind and rain aplenty, but are in little to no danger from storm surge. Galveston and others at waters edge will no doubt be advised to move inland but I can't see a large scale evacuation of Houston. Our friends and relatives who live in the area aren't planning to leave.

@Ragman,
Good move. There will be a lot of folks from say, Galveston, who will, we can hope, be wanting to return home on Sunday.
We have an A2K thread going called "Hanna, Ike and Josephine." Lots of maps and links to local tv. Perhaps someone smarter then I am could post a link to that.

@ehBeth,
ehBeth: I may have spotted an error when you transcribed your game choices:
You had typed, "Benny and the Jets @ Tampa Bay"

However, the actual choices are TB Bucs (not the Jets) or Atlanta Falcons. Which one is your choice for this game?

@ehBeth,
I put it down as Atlanta, figuring that was some music group from there, I am not into pop culture.

Thass funny. I'll take Atlanta.

@realjohnboy,
bump, bump. We are looking for a couple of players from last week, and also are welcoming any new players.

Here is the slate for Week #2. 16 games, once again, but no Thursday night game. So the deadline for getting in is Sunday afternoon before 1 pm Eastern US time. An * after a team's name indicates they won in Week #1.

Early Games, 9/14:
Buffalo* @ Jacksonville
Oakland @ Kansas City
Indianapolis @ Minnesota
Chicago* @ Carolina*
Green Bay* @ Detroit
NY Giants* @ St Louis
New Orleans* @ Washington
Tennessee* @ Cincinnatti
Late Games, 9/14:
Atlanta* @ Tampa Bay
San Francisco @ Seattle
New England* @ NY Jets*
San Diego @ Denver*
Miami @ Arizona*
Baltimore* @ Houston
Sunday Night Game, 9/14:
Pittsburgh* @ Cleveland
Monday Night Game, 9/15:
Philadelphia* @ Dallas*
(And please don't forget to pick the final score in that last game).

If anyone who did not play last week would like to join, we would welcome you. The scoring has been set up such that folks who don't get to pick in every game don't get penalized. We would love to have new players.

@realjohnboy,
Here's the requested link for the Hanna, Ike, and Josephine thread
http://able2know.org/topic/121862-16#post-3401011

We probably need to run another ad on a separate thread to generate new interest in this one though. Otherwise folks looking in at the beginning won't realize they can join up even though we've started
