@realjohnboy,
If I'm in the whereabouts of Ragman and Cowdoc on this game, I'm doin' pretty good.

@realjohnboy,
medicore...nahh.. I'll bet it's those first-game blues. I'll bet our first week's games last year were some lower scores too. I wonder how similarly we tracked?

Of course, the 2nd week won't be a picnic either - especially with certain franchise players (QB Brady) missing for a game or 2 (or gone for the season .......wahhh!!).

@Ragman,
the following link shows last year's thread and the scores after the first week. Seems pretty much at the same relative scoring.

The winner of Week #1 is Ragman. He, along with Jespah and Wandeljw, ended at 12-4. Total points scored in the Denver-Oakland games: 55. Jespah and Wandeljw had expected fewer points than Ragman's pick of 37.
So in 1st place @ 12-4 (.750): Ragman, Jespah and Wandeljw.
In 4th place @ 11-5 (.687): Fbaezer.
The 5th position is a tie @ 10-6 (.625): Realjohnboy, Liontamerx, Cowdoc and Ehbeth.
A bunch of folks clustered for 9th @ 9-7 (.562): McGentrix, Osso, Edgar, Rockhead, Tico, ElStud and Region.
Maporsch holds 16th @ 8-7 (.533).
Tied @ 8-8 (.500) for 17th: Imur and Alex.
In 19th @ 7-9 (.437): Foxfyre and George.
Holding down the 21st slot @ 6-9 (.400) is Mysterman.
The best ESPN picker finished @ 11-5 (.687).
The worst one would fit into our pack, going 9-7 (.562)

So this was only Week #1. Plenty of time for improvement.

Let me know of any errors. Thanks for playing.

@realjohnboy,
Thanks for all your work, RJB! Will Ragman get extra points for being the weekly winner? (I am only concerned because Ragman is always at a disadvantage when playing against me. Smile )

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.

Okay Maporsch, lmur, Alex, George, and Mysteryman. Do you think we've given them enough of a head start?

Since Jespah did so well on week 1, I'll follow one of her methods.
Pick the team with the longest name:

Jacksonville over Bills
Kansas City over Oakland
Indianapolis over Minnesota
Carolina over Chicago
Green Bay over Detroit
Giants over Rams
New Orleans over Redskins
Bengals over Titans
Buccaneers over Hawks
Seahawks over 49ers
New England over Jets
San Diego over Denver*
Arizona over Miami
Baltimore over Houston
Pittsburgh over Cleveland
Philadelphia over Dallas 45 points (28-17)

Puh-leeeeze. Only the finest calligraphy is acceptable. I must be an expert by now. I've had the tools for at least 30 years and take them out and look at them every couple of years or so.

@realjohnboy,
No just the default typeface on the board whatever that is - changed to large and bold.
