So I have this chart. And it is so neat and tidy. 16 rows down the left plus rows for scores. 25 columns across the top. Each of us gets a quarter of an inch of column. Each of you is worth a quarter of an inch to me.
The early games are over. I attack my nice chart with blue and red highlighters. Blue is a correct pick. Red is a bad one. I used to use green rather than blue but it dried up. I make no political statement by using blue or red.
Through the early games--I have that here somewhere--: there is really not much to report. Five of us have 2 wrong picks; four of us have 5 blunders. Those in the latter category may recover. Perhaps not.

Last week I said we were mediocre. This week, so far, we are even more so--if that is possible. 13 games over (Balt@Houston postponed) and 2 to go.
Alex has to wear the A2K clown costume (did yall even know we had an A2K clown costume?) after going 2-9 plus two abstentions.
The rest of us are, as mentioned, undistinguished in our picking success, ranging from 5-8 to 8-5.
Ah, 8-5: Realjohnboy, Foxfyre, ElStud and Imur. Every player here has the Steelers, and the 8-5ers all have Dallas. Tie-town, perhaps, with Fbaezer and Ms Cowdoc joining in the tie if Philly wins.

@realjohnboy,
Oy vey! Sure were some upsets. I'm not sure that I want to see what that changes to my orig. choices did to my week's success rate.

However, all that being said, there were some great football games. Sure is good to have season under way. That Redskins-Saints and Broncs-Charger games were pretty damn interesting. Especially with the way Broncs-Chargers ended and how they scored. Gotta feel bad for a good Charger team being snake-bitten with those 2 games with last-minute officiating decisions. Of course, Chargers still had a chance at the end to do something to change the result, so it's not as tragic as it seemed on the surface. Gotta be the best 0-2 team in many seasons. Charger's next week's matchup with the Jets should be interesting. Sure can't see Jets faring too well with that one, either. This match is in SD. Gotta love Favre, but this is his "Welcome back to the NFL" greeting!

Surprisingly, the Pats win was pretty solid. This shows what a well-run team they are and how deep their talent is (beyond Brady). Moss was basically out of it and they STILL pulled it out. Without being too giddy, let's see what happens when they face a strong playoff-bound team. Jets don't seem to be too strong on either side of the ball...so far.

@Ragman,
Let this be an example as I'm the 'poster-child for "never-make-a-change-after-your-first-choice"! My changes resutled in a loss of 4 out of 5 points. I'd have been 10-4 if I'd made no changes after my first choices. Only one change resulted in a win. Oh well, at least I didn't put any money on it!

@Ragman,
You should be consoled by the fact that you have until November to change your mind on the Baltimore-Houston game, Ragman.

@wandeljw,
hehehe! Too bad there's not much riding on that. Baltimore MIGHT be a playoff team IF they get their act together.

And skipping the NYG @ St Louis game. I tried emailing you @ the blind address (whatever that is) but it failed.

@alex240101,
Alex's picks for Week #3 are duly recorded. Please return the clown costume, washed and pressed, along with the big shoes and the red nose, to A2K Central. I am sure it will be needed again.

My sis has a "duck umbrella" for karaoke night at the bar. By group vote, one must sing their song under the umbrella as a sign to the newbies to go outside and take a smoke...

Alex is cool, for a Mitten guy...

Week #2: Imur won the week, thanks to his predicting that a lot of points would be scored in last night's tiebreaker game. He said 62 total points. The actual total was 78. It was one of the highest scoring games in Monday Night Football history.
He finished the week at 10-5, tied with Johnboy, Foxfyre and ElStud. Five players came in at 9-6 and six eked out a winning week by going 8-7. Six folks finished below .500.
The standings and next week's schedule coming up shortly.

Standings after Week #2: Wandejw breaks out of a 3-way tie for 1st with a second good week. His winning average is now .677. Ragman, who was in a tie for 1st last week slips into a tie for 2nd with Johnboy. Their winning % is .645. Noticable is that Johnboy is the only player to have a double digit number of wins in each week. "Mr Consistency."
4th place belongs to Liontamer at .625; he did not play last week.
Fbaezer (.612) is in a tie for 5th with ElStud (who rose from 9th) and Jespah (who sank from a tie for 1st).
Sublime checks in with a decent week (.600) and claims 8th place.
Tied for 9th (.580) are McGentrix, Osso, Edgar and Imur (who rose from 17th).
Tico, Region, Foxfyre and Cowdoc are tied for 13th (.548) with Cowdoc tumbling from 5th after a losing week.
In 17th are Ma Porsche and Ms Cowdoc.
Rockhead, who really needs to start paying attention sits in the 19th slot along with Ehbeth. Each of them did pretty badly last week.
Still in 21st (.466) is Mysteryman who has to be smiling as George (22nd & .451) and Alex (23rd & .413) race to the bottom of the standings.

As always, please let me know if have screwed anything up. Good luck in week #3.
