This is, by my reckoning, our 12th year of doing this. We had five players the first year. In recent years we have grown to the mid-twenties.
We post a full schedule of the games, usually on Tuesdays, ahead of the Thursday through Monday's matches.
Your job is to pick the winner in each game.
Here is the schedule for week #1:
Thur - 9/8 -
Carolina Panthers @ Denver Broncos
Sun - 9/11 -
Tampa Bay Bucs @ Atlanta Falcons
Minnesota Vikings @ Tennessee Titans
Cleveland Browns @ Philadelphia Eagles
Cincinnati Bengals @ NY Jets
Oakland Raiders @ New Orleans Saints
San Diego Chargers @ Kansas City Chiefs
Buffalo Bills @ Baltimore Ravens
Chicago Bears @ Houston Texans
Green Bay Packers @ Jacksonville Jaguars
Miami Dolphins @ Seattle Seahawks
NY Giants @ Dallas Cowboys
Detroit Lions @ Indianapolis Colts
NE Patriots @ Arizona Cardinals
Mon - 9/12 -
Pittsburgh Steelers @ Washington Redskins
Los Angeles Rams @ San Francisco 49ers
PLEASE REMEMBER to guess the final score in the last game.
I need to shape up, lots of stuff going on that I get but then commentaries fly past.
The first game is a Super Bowl rematch. This should be fun. I'm kinda
leaning toward the Panthers right now.
Are those prices for real?
I will go first.
New Orleans Saints
Kansas City Chiefs
Green Bay Packers
Los Angeles Rams (26-13)
Reportedly, Tony Romo (Dallas) will be out 6-10 weeks.
The backup seems pretty good.
I didn't know the Cowboys #2 quarterback also is hurt. I want the other team now.
Waving to all and hope everyone had a great summer. I certainly did.
I'm pondering the new teams, new QBs and the newly hatched personnel. Seems like it's Been 2 seasons since I last played not just one. What an amazing summer it's been.
I'll be away from home for the whole season except for the first 3 or 4 games. I'll be logging in from overseas. Hope the Internet connections will be good.
Where are you going, Ragman?
I have changed Edgar's pick in Week #1 from Dallas to "the other team."
We hope so too, kiddo. Meantime, be well and happy.
I hope you are not talking about Prescott..
Realjohn, Rags has posted on his life off and on here, no links, but he has been through serious whirlwinds, health wise.
He has had a turnaround, the love of a good woman, will be traveling.
Congrats to edgarblythe for jumping right in with his picks!
They look pretty good, too.
Well, except for that misguided Jets pick.
