Hey two things before I start here.
1. I hope this is in the right forum, if not I will correct it next week.
2. I can't remember who started this last year so I hope you don't take offense that I am not giving you credit for it.
Last year here on PP.o many of us participated in a game where we picked the winner of every game that week. I would like to start that up again this year and would be willing to keep each week's tally unless someone else wants to. Anyway, here we go.. here is the list of this weeks games.
Oakland at New England
Tampa Bay at Minnesota
Denver at Miami
Tennessee at Pittsburgh
Chicago at Washington
New Orleans at Carolina
Seattle at Jacksonville
Houston at Buffalo
Cincinnati at Cleveland
NY Jets at Kansas City
Green Bay at Detroit
Dallas at San Diego
St. Louis at San Francisco
Arizona at NY Giants
Indianapolis at Baltimore
Philadelphia at Atlanta
Good luck everyone.. Picks this week would be due at 7:59 Central time Thursday night.

Please send beer to:

my apartment
Niles, OH

or just get together w/ me the weekend of 9/23-9/25, I'll be in town. PM me for cellphone info.

I've been using scores to make my picks for the last 3-4 years. It makes it more interesting. I think I got about 5 scores exactly right last year. I still have records of it on my computer I'll double check it, when I have enough time.

Hey, if the Swami can do it, I can. And so can you.

You'll be in the cities the weekend of 9/23 - 9/25. I'll have to check my schedule to see if I'll be up there that weekend.

I can't believe you have about 5 scores exactly right. The NY Times did the same thing for I don't know how long (it was chronicled on Tuesday Morning QB) and they got 1 game right out of 900 something if I remember correctly. I hope someone knows what I am talking about and can back me up on that.

I double checked, I actually only got 2 exactly right:

week 12
Jaguars 16
Vikings 27

week 16
Chargers 31
Colts 34

I had several that were off by one point or where I had the spread, but was off by a FG, for instance I said 27-17, and it was 24-14.

Here are some close ones from 2004:

week 2 p/a
Texans 17/16
Lions 28/28

week 10 p/a
Bucs 13/14
Falcons 23/24

week 12 p/a
Saints 20/21
Falcons 23/24

week 17 p/a
Cowboys 23/24
Giants 27/28

For the 2004 regular season I got 165 right and 91 wrong (straight up, not sure how I did against the spread), and went 6-5 in the playoffs.
