Thank you so much! I'd wish you luck with your picks, but apparently you don't need it! I just saw you're #7 on our Leaderboard! Nice going. Now stop it! :-)

 

You are welcome!! But remember where I ended up on the picks last year - second last place. So now I'm gonna be a bit more savvy in my picks (*hopes*)

 

Happy B-Day, darling!

My sister called me Friday to say she joined in a $5 pool at her office, and wanted help on the tiebreaker (point total for the MNF game). I guessed at something.

 

She emailed me to say she has 9 games correct so far.

 

I hate her right now.

Week Three has come and gone, with some surprising records, huge scores, more injuries and some awesome picks this week. The Baltimore Ravens have set a record, by going 0-3 for the first time in franchise history. The Saints also are 0-3 - surprising some - while the Lions and Bears (oh my!) are 0-3, surprising no one.

 

Injuries abound again, with Ben Roethelisburger now out for six weeks with a MCL injury and the Packers WR Davante Adams out with an injured ankle.

 

There were a lot of high scores this week, with GB killing KC (38-28), the Bills racking up 41 points (to 14) against Miami, the Falcons defeating the Cowboys (39-28), the Cardinals embarrassing the 49ers (47-7), and Seattle shutting out the Bears.

 

Everyone did really well in the picks this week, with near perfection being AimingForYoko, with 15 correct, the Jets pick being the only incorrect one. chrissytd and ExplainItAgain are right behind with 14 correct each. Most of us got tripped up by picking the Jets over the Eagles (who knew the Eagles could actually win a game!). Only AimingforYoko, ebk57 and P2C2E picked Philly to win.

 

Overall, xaxat is the Master of Picks this week with 33 points, claiming the sole lead! jennifer6973 and chrissytd are right behind with 32 points, while DrSpaceman73, merylinkid and AimingforYoko are knocking at the door.

 

Here is the Week 3 Leaderboard

Ravens @ Steelers

••Big Ben is out- The former president of officiating Mike Perriera (spelling?) said a flag should have been thrown. Hopefully he'll get a fine. Now that piece of trash, good for nothing scum bag Michael Vick gets to start till Ben comes back. I really don't like him.

Sunday October 4th

Jets @ Dolphins

Jaguars @ Colts

Giants @ Bills

•• May as well flip a coin for the first 3 games. It has nothing to do with who's going to play the best & everything to do with who's going to play the worst.••

Panthers @ Buccaneers

Eagles @ Redskins

Raiders @ Bears

Texans @ Falcons

Chiefs @ Bengals

•• The Bengals just can't go 4-0. Right?••

Browns @ Chargers

•• Are most of these games difficult or is it just me? I will kick myself if the Brownies win- since I just changed my pick.••

Packers @ 49ers

Rams @ Cardinals

Vikings @ Broncos

•• Did yinz see those Directv commercials with Peyton in? If not, you should google them People seem to think that it's Peyton's age that's made him lose a few steps this season. I think it's his skinny legs. Also- how funny would it be if he yelled, "Omaha" in that little voice? Maybe I watch too much TV.••

Cowboys @ Saints

Monday October 5th

Lions @ Seahawks

Ravens over steelers, can't overcome loss of Ben.

Jets over Dolphins.....but the real winner is the fine city of London, and those who like waking up at 930 for football

Colts over Jags.......if the Colts struggle this week I give up on them for the year, and I hope Pep gets fired

Bills over giants

Panthers over Bucs

Eagles over skins......it seems some think we shouldn't write Redskins, but honestly to me Skins seems more racist

Raiders over Bears.....when is the last time The Raiders could look to a game and almost be a lock for a win?

Falcons over Texans

Bengals over Chiefs.

Chargers over Browns.........Is the name Browns racist as well? (I know its origin, its a joke)

Packers over 49ers.....49ers only chance is a time machine back to 1995. Also only way this game would be watchable

Cardinals over Rams

Broncos over Vikings

Saints over Cowboys

Seahawks over Lions

Somehow the Pats will beat the Titans in the bye week..... not sure how, but they will find a way.

Ravens @ Steelers   Ravens   They're due and Michael Vick is competent but not great.   Plus he's fragile.

Sunday October 4th
Jets @ Dolphins   Jets   I think they can pull this off and the Dolphins are into their annual falling apart a bit early.
Jaguars @ Colts  Colts.   Too bad they got their act together a week early.
Giants @ Bills   Giants.   Not really sure, but what the heck.
Panthers @ Buccaneers  Panthers   I think Cam is old enough to win this one.
Eagles @ Redskins   picking either one is going to kill me, just kill me.   Eagles.   Only because the Skins are in worse shape.  
Raiders @ Bears   Raiders weep, weep.
Texans @ Falcons   Falcons   Yeah Julio is hurt but they will find a way.
Chiefs @ Bengals  Bengals.   The red head will beat Big Red.
Browns @ Chargers   Chargers.   Oh just kill me now.
Packers @ 49ers  Packers   Is there any doubt on this one?
Rams @ Cardinals   Cardinals.   As long as Palmer stays healthy the Cards are a team to reckon with.
Vikings @ Broncos  Broncos even old and broken down Peyton is still Peyton.
Cowboys @ Saints   boy, which back up will screw up less.   Cowboys.   Sentiment no other reason.   I don't expect to do better than the middle by the end of the season so I might as well go with the heart.   But if Weedon screws this up .....

Monday October 5th
Lions @Seahawks    bwahahahahahahahaha.   Could be a trap game but I doubt it.   Seahawks.

 

I get 9:30 a.m. Sunday football.   I'm giddy with excitement.

I wonder how many games will be affected by this hurricane? I know my area is expecting 2 ft. of rain and lots of flooding but the Panthers are playing in Florida not at home. I think the North East teams have away games. Anyhow, if you are in the storms path stay safe and dry!

Everyone did really well in the picks this week, with near perfection being AimingForYoko, with 15 correct, the Jets pick being the only incorrect one.

Actually, I missed the Bengals over the Ravens, hence the joke about the Ravens' secondary allowing two A.J. Green TDs in the last seven minutes.

My cat's picks last week were better than mine were the 2 previous weeks combined. I don't know if I'm embarrassed for myself or proud of my cat. I'm going to stick with her formula, which is cats and birds win. Also, hate the Jets and Giants.

Ah. And being a cat- she probably likes to claw at balls to deflate them too.

 

It all makes sense. Thanks for explaining your reasoning.  If I don't do well this week, I may take to blind-folding myself and throwing darts at a sign that says "home" "away" and just picking on which word the dart is closer to landing.

HAHAHAHA Josh Scobee will be released on Monday, if not by 6am tomorrow, amiright??

I can only hope you're right- but I'd really like if they sent our idiot head coach Mike Tomlin & worthless (backup) QB Vick with him. This is gonna be a very long next couple weeks for me and every other Steelers fan.

I may do something I've never done and pick against my Steelers in Week 6 vs Arizona.
