  3. Enjoy watching @Biggie's 3rd string Falcons play @IPS Temp Admin's 3rd string Broncos! The non-debut of Joe Flacco for the Broncos should be exciting to see!

  8. https://www.si.com/nfl/2019/02/10/alliance-american-football-opening-night-highlights-ratings The caveat, of course, is that the XFL originally drew big ratings as well, but they quickly crashed. Let's see how the AAF does over time! The XFL debuts next year.
  9. Yep. Sorry, I'm calling it. I have mad respect for Nate B and Jason W and they do support it, but I am not buying it. 499 rec, for 5,390 yards and 30 TDs at 32 years old doesn't cut it, regardless of playoffs. Especially not in this era.

  14. Forcing hands with a big bet, BasemntDweller2 retakes the lead going into the final week of the MGT competition! But he can't rest easy; the top of the leaderboard is right on his tail with less than $100k seperating each of the top 3 contenders! With only the Super Bowl left to battle over, who will be left standing atop the hill when the dust settles?! -= CONFERENCE CHAMPIONSHIP ROUND RESULTS =- Feature Game: L.A.

($15,000 for the correct call) A Pats TD from a 1 yard goal line run by Michel was the first score here. 3) Which conference will put up more points this weekend? ($15,000 for the correct answer) The NFC put up 49 while the AFC went at it for 68 points. Guesses on the AFC win. johnny and Jose were the only players to nail this one. 4) How many field goals of greater than 50 yards will be converted this weekend? ($15,000 for the correct team) Greg Zuerlein's game winner in OT of the feature game was good from 57 yards out and was the only 50+ yarder converted on Sunday. 5) Pick the winner: New England @ Kansas City ($15,000 for the correct pick) *yawn* Hey guys, the Patriots are in the Super Bowl. Again. Wake me when next season starts. Do numbers at the end of your name make you psychic? Only BasemntDweller2 and RedSoxFan9 called this game correctly! -= THE LEADERBOARD =- @BasemntDweller2 - $448,200 @RedSoxFan9 - $359,400 @thewhyteboar - $313,550 Slug - $183,000 @Keyser_Soze - $81,000 @Alpha1Cowboy - $78,500 @johnny - $63,200 @Jose - $30,000 @Greatoneshere - $21,000 @mikechorney - $17,000 @Kal-El814 - $10,500 @Biggie - $0 @SFLUFAN - $0 ####################### ** PRO BOWL BYE WEEK ** ####################### The Pro-Bowl is the MGT thread's Bye week!

  17. The New York Jets’ head coaching search has reportedly come to an end with the selection of perhaps the most boring name on the market. Despite a list of potential candidates that included exciting assistants like Kansas City’s offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy or hotshot Cowboys d-backs coach Kris Richard, the Jets have opted instead to pick up the Dolphins’ sloppy seconds, hiring Adam Gase to replace Todd Bowles. Gase just got fired by Miami after a 7-9 year, and he only managed a 23-25 record in three seasons. But hey, at least he went 5-1 against the Jets! Also related: I am so confused.
  18. In a bittersweet MGT moment, a big bet on his beloved Seahawks lifts thewhyteboar back to the top of the pack! The lead is retaken, but only by the slimmest of margins! With only 3 weeks left the bets are getting riskier as the stakes get higher. Who'll be left standing when the dust settles in the end?! -= WILD CARD RESULTS =- Feature Game: Seattle Seahawks @ Dallas Cowboys (-2.5) The Cowboys managed to hold on to eek out a victory on the field, but fail to cover the points, losing by a score of 22-21.5 (24-2.5). Bets on Seattle win. -= QUESTIONS =- 1) What will be the first scoring play of the Feature Game? Seahawks touchdown, Seahawks field goal, Seahawks safety, Cowboys touchdown, Cowboys field goal, Cowboys safety, or other? ($7,000 for the correct call) A first quarter Dallas field goal kicked off the scoring in this one. Calls on a Cowboys FG get it. Biggie was the only player to get this one right. 2) How many total turnovers (combined, both teams) will occur in the Feature Game? ($8,000 for the correct number) Rayne threw an interception for the game's lone turnover (1). Nobody guessed this. 3) Of the 4 Wild Card games this weekend, how many will be decided by 8 or fewer points? ($6,000 for the correct answer) 3 of the 4 wild card games were decided by a single possession, with only Colts vs Texans having a bigger margin. 4) Who will be the most penalized team this weekend in terms of number of penalties (not yards)? ($6,000 for the correct team) In what turned out to be a relatively flag-light weekend all around, the Texans were your biggest violators, getting flagged for 8 accepted penalties. Bets on Houston win. RedSoxFan9 was the only player to get this one right. 5) Pick the winners ($7,000 for each correct pick, $9,000 bonus if you call all 3 correctly) Indianapolis @ Houston L.A. Chargers @ Baltimore Philadelphia @ Chicago Bad week for the home teams as all the road warriors go home happy. Nobody called all 3 correctly to earn the bonus. 6) Name the player who will rush for the most yards AND the player that will have the most receiving yards over Wild Card Weekend? ($15,000 for each player named correctly, $20,000 bonus if both names are called) Marlon Mack ran over Houston to the tune of 148 yards and Allen Robinson caught 143 to lead all receivers in Chicago's losing effort versus Philly. Nobody called either player. -= THE LEADERBOARD =- @thewhyteboar - $359,550 @BasemntDweller2 - $330,100 @RedSoxFan9 - $273,400 Slug - $200,000 @SFLUFAN - $151,000 @Keyser_Soze - $148,300 @Alpha1Cowboy - $78,500 @Jose - $65,400 @Biggie - $39,000 @Greatoneshere - $21,000 @mikechorney - $17,000 @Kal-El814 - $10,500 @johnny - $9,100 Remember; it's never too late to start (OK, so maybe now it's kind of too late..)! Everyone begins with $1,000 no matter which week you jump in! Good luck to everyone in the Divisional Round! Feature Game and Questions follow this post! -= THE RULES =- 1. You make your bet and answer the questions simply by posting on the thread each week with your pick for the featured game along with your bet, followed by your answers to the prediction questions. 2. Everyone starts with $1,000. If a user doesn't start until week 3, they still start with $1,000. Your best bet it to get in early and play every week. 3. If you somehow reach $0 you are not out of the competition. You can't bet on the feature game during weeks that you are broke, but you can answer the prediction questions and hope to earn cash to gamble the following week. 4. IMPORTANT: I will set a deadline for getting your entries for the week in (usually before kick-off of that week's first game). It is imperative that you make your post before the deadline. The entry thread will be locked at the deadline so if you don't get your entry in by then you lose out on the chance to make money that week. 5. I work full time AND coach youth football AND go to school when I can AND have a near crippling gaming addiction AND probably drink too much. Responsibilities and personality flaws allowing, I will attempt to post the results and the next week's game/questions each Tuesday, as early as possible. Keep in mind though that there may be some wackiness here and there based on my schedule and hangovers. Pay attention. 6. For the official recording of stats/yardage NFL.com will be used. Whatever their site says on Tuesday morning is what counts. No whining. 8. Accounts created within the current calendar month are not eligible to play and any entries from such accounts will not be considered. -= Previous Weeks =- Week 1 Week 2 Week 3 Week 4 Week 5 Week 6 Week 7 Week 8 Week 9 Week 10 Week 11 Week 12 Week 13 Week 14 Week 15 Week 16 Week 17 Wild Card Round

  20. With the college football season starting up Saturday I figure now's as good a time as any to make this thread. No really great games though. Kind of odd since they had a season opener in Australia last year, this year we just get Prairie View at Rice
