  1. Despite losing on the Feature Game, Biggie makes a couple clutch calls on the weekly questions to hang on to the lead! -= WEEK 3 RESULTS =- Feature Game: The Steelers hold on to beat the Bucs by a score of 30-27, covering the -2. Alpha1Cowboy and Slug were the only players who called it right. 1) What will be the first scoring play of the Feature Game? ($600 for the correct call) Harvard to Harvard, Fitzpatrick connects with Brate on a red zone touchdown pass for the first score of the game (Bucs TD). 2) Over or under? 50 combined points in the Feature Game. ($500 for the correct call) The teams combined for 57 points Monday Night; bets on the over get the cash. 3) Air Superiority: Name the QB that will throw for the most yards in week 3. ($800 for the correct name) Ryan Fitzpatrick goes for 400+ 3 weeks in a row to take the passing title this week with 411 yards. Nobody saw the Fitzmagic happening 3 weeks in a row, but it did. 4) Name the team that will get penalized the most in Week 3 ($800 for the correct team) The 49'ers were penalized the most in Week 3, getting flagged 14 times. Dirty cheaters. Biggie was the only player to recognize their devious ways. 5) Call the winners: Green Bay at Washington Cincinatti at Carolina Denver at Baltimore ($500 for EACH correctly named game winner, $1200 bonus if you call all 3 correct) There's no place like home? The Redskins, Panthers, and Ravens all beat their visitors by double digits. Only 3 players called Washington, but it was SFLUFAN who called all 3 winners being the lone player to get the bonus cash for the week! 6) Name the kicker that will boot the longest FG in Week 3. ($800 for the right name) Ka'imi Fairbairn got the longest field goal this week with a 53 yarder in the 3rd quarter for the Texans. Nobody called this one. 7) Escape from Los Angeles: Which team will rack up the most combined offensive yards (rushing and receiving) in the Chargers vs. Rams contest? ($600 for the correct answer) The Rams and it wasn't even close. 525 total yards of offense for the Rams and 367 for the Chargers. Calls on the Rams win. 8) Name the player who will rush for the most yards AND the player that will have the most receiving yards in week two. ($1,500 for each player named correctly, $5,000 bonus if both names are called) Christian McCaffery takes the rushing crown in Week 3 with 184 yards while the air title goes to Jordy Nelson who pulled in 173 yards. Biggie had a feeling about McCaffery and it paid off, being the only player to call either name correctly and allowing him to hang on to his lead. Nobody got the bonus. -= LEADERBOARD =- @Biggie - $8,500 @Alpha1Cowboy - $7,200 @thewhyteboar - $5,650 @mikechorney - $5,600 @RedSoxFan9 - $5,200 Slug - $4,900 @SFLUFAN - $4,800 @Keyser_Soze - $3,300 @Greatoneshere - $3,200 @johnny - $2,700 @BasemntDweller2 - $1,650 @Kal-El814 - $950 Remember; it's never too late to start! Everyone begins with $1,000 no matter which week you jump in! Good luck to everyone in Week 4! 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. 7. 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
  2. This week appears to have a lot of good matchups. Falcons vs Saints, Pittsburgh vs Tampa Bay should be exciting. Pray for Detroit, Arizona and Buffalo
  3. 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
  4. Week 2 is in the books and Biggie scrambles to the top of the leaderboard, being one of only 2 players to pick correctly in the Feature Game! -= WEEK 2 RESULTS =- Feature game: The Cowboys pull out a 20-13 win over the Giants, covering the 4 points. Bets on Dallass win. Biggie and Alpha1Cowboy were the only players to see this one coming. 1.What will be the first scoring play of the Feature Game? Giants TD, Giants FG, Giants safety, Cowboys TD, Cowboys FG, Cowboys safety, or other? ($500 for the correct call) The first score in the Feature Game was a 64 yard touchdown pass to Tavon Austin (Cowboys TD). Nobody called this correctly. 2) How many turnovers (combined) will occur in the Feature Game? 0-1, 2-3, 4-5, 6-7, or 8+ ($600 for the correct call) They were pretty safe with the ball, eh? Only 1 turnover in this one; an Eli fumble. Nobody called this. 3) Mile High Kicking - How many total field goals (not PATs) will be made in the Oakland @ Denver game? ($700 for the correct call) 4 field goals were tallied in Denver this weekend. 4) Name both the highest and lowest scoring teams in Week 2. ($700 for each correct team, +$600 if you name them both) Your scoring leader this week was Chiefs who hung 42 on the board in Pittsburgh and the lowest scoring team was the Cardinals who got completely shut out (0). Nobody called the Chiefs, but Keyser_Soze and Alpha1Cowboy both knew Arizona was in for a bad week. 5) Call the winners: Minnesota at Green Bay Miami at NY Jets New England at Jacksonville ($500 for EACH correctly named game winner, $1000 bonus if you call all 3 correct) Results here were: a draw (everyone gets credit), Miami, and Jacksonville. RedSoxFan9 was the only player to make the right call on Jacksonville. Nobody earned the bonus. 6) Name the quarterback that will have the highest number of pass attempts in Week 2. ($700) Roethlisberger hucked the ball 60 times to lead the League in passing attempts in week 2. Nobody called his name. 7) Name the player that will score the first touchdown in the Texans @ Titans game? Again; by "score" I mean "the guy holding the ball in the end-zone". Only call the QB if you believe the first TD will be a rushing TD by him. Say, "nobody" if you believe there will be no TDs scored. ($800 for the correct answer) Nobody guessed that Dane Cruikshank would get the first TD of this game, hauling in a 66 yard pass for a score. 8) Name the player who will rush for the most yards AND the player that will have the most receiving yards in week two. ($1,200 for each player named correctly, $5,000 bonus if both names are called) Matt Breida led the field in rushing in week 2 with 138 yards while Brandin Cooks pulled in 159 through the air to take the week 2 receiving crown. Nobody called either player. -= LEADERBOARD =- @Biggie - $5,600 @Alpha1Cowboy - $5,100 @mikechorney - $4,900 @thewhyteboar - $3,950 @Greatoneshere - $3,200 @RedSoxFan9 - $3,200 Slug - $2,900 @SFLUFAN - $2,400 @Keyser_Soze - $2,100 @johnny- $1,700 @BasemntDweller2 - $1,650 @Kal-El814 - $1,350 Remember; it's never too late to start!

  5. https://deadspin.com/texas-school-superintendent-gets-racist-on-facebook-abo-1829171001? Coach Bill O'Brien responded to this comment:
  6. Some of the week one games seemed sloppy, so with a week under their belts the teams are surely ready to put out better results than a 21 all tie and a 47 - 3 demolishing right? Can Chicago keep that dominating defense on for 4 quarters against the Seahawks or will Wilson pull an Aaron Rodgers?
  7. Week 1 is in the books and sees mikechorney taking the early lead! It seems a lot of us had a little too much faith in the Falcons. It wasn't pretty but your reigning Super Bowl champions managed to pull it out. -= WEEK 1 RESULTS =- Feature Game - Eagles win 18-12, beating the 3 points. Bets on the Eagles pay out. 1) What will be the first scoring play of the Feature Game? Eagles TD, Eagles FG, Eagles safety, Falcons TD, Falcons FG, Falcons safety, or other? ($400 for the correct call) The first score in this one was a 21 yard Matt Bryant field goal for the Falcons. 2) How many yards will Devonta Freeeman rush for against the Eagles this week? - Under 50, 51-99, 100-149, 150-199, or 200+ ($500 for the correct call) A few players saw this pitiable performance coming. Freeman rushed for only 36 yards before going out of the game with an injury. Guesses for under 50 take it. 3) How many penalties will be thrown in the feature game? ($600 for the correct call) Week 1 saw a ton of flags thrown and this one was no exception. 26 penalties were assessed in the Feature Game. 4) Who will score the Saints' 1st touchdown this week? ($800 for the correct name, or "Nobody" if you believe that they will not score a TD this week. And by "score" I mean "the guy holding the ball in the end-zone". Only call the QB if you believe the first TD will be a rushing TD by him.) Kamara scored the Saints' first touchdown on a 5 yard run in the first quarter. 5) Call the winners: Jacksonville at New York Giants Washington at Arizona Seattle at Denver ($500 for EACH correct named game winner, $1000 bonus if you call all 3 correct) Several players called 2/3, but nobody earned the bonus. 6) How many total points will be scored in the Monday Night game (L.A. Rams at Oakland)? 0-10, 11-24, 25-36, 37-45, or 46-55 or 55+ ($600 for the correct guess) 46 points were tallied in the Rams vs Raiders contest last night. Guesses on 46-55 pay. 7) How many field goals of 50+ yards will be converted in Week 1? ($400 for the correct answer) 5 field goals of 50+ were booted this week. 8) Name the player who will rush for the most yards AND the player that will have the most receiving yards in week one. ($1,000 for each player named correctly, $5,000 bonus if both names are called) James Conner takes the week 1 rushing crown with 135 yards while Jared Cook and Michael Thomas share the receiving title with 180 yards each. thewhyteboar was the only player to call one of these names (Thomas). -= LEADERBOARD =- @mikechorney - $4,500 @Alpha1Cowboy - $3,500 @Biggie - $3,500 @thewhyteboar - $3,250 @Greatoneshere - $3,000 @RedSoxFan9 - $2,900 Slug - $2,200 @BasemntDweller2 - $2,150 @Kal-El814 - $1,850 @SFLUFAN - $1,850 @Keyser_Soze - $1,400 @johnny - $1,000 Good luck to everyone in Week 2!

  8. I decided to make this thread a bit earlier in the week. I'll probably not have internet for a couple of days plus this week you can hype yourself up to get disappointed later in the week. Games start on Thursday, let's go!

  10. Time to bring this thread back. Starting it off classy with the (now old) Kellen Winslow Jr. news. Last time I posted it was just robberies. Now I guess he's been trying to rape 4 women over 50 years old, one 71. 😨 https://deadspin.com/prosecutor-kellen-winslow-jr-threatened-to-murder-wom-1826877164

    Football Why Your Team Sucks 2018

    The Browns My favorite bits: Amazing. Fucking amazing. I wouldn’t trust the Bengals to make a fucking mustard sandwich properly, and yet here are the analytics masters of the Browns blindly entrusting their fate to Mike Brown’s fax machine. Why, it’s almost like the Haslam family is instinctively careless with formal documentation! Did I mention that the Niners got Jimmy Garoppolo for just a second rounder?
  12. The Reporter Who Won’t Let the NFL Go off the Record Mark Leibovich spent years digging under the skin of Washington, D.C.’s power brokers. When he turned his attention to the world of pro football for a new book, he found an awfully familiar set of characters. Goodell evinced no sense of humor. When Jane Skinner Goodell told Leibovich that her husband had the NFL shield tattooed on his butt, Roger Goodell made sure the reporter knew she was joking. Goodell was eager to talk in detail about how he’d crushed a Pilates or SoulCycle workout. “It’s almost as if he’s making himself a Vince McMahon creation, right?” Leibovich said. “I’m the dick in the suit and I work out a lot. You can see it, because the suit is kinda tight.”

  14. - This is probably RG3's last real shot to show that he deserves to be in this League. Whether it's in Baltimore or elsewhere, he's playing for a roster spot. Can he perform well enough to get some coach's attention? - Debut of the Bears' rookie head coach. He'll be evaluating the roster, but can he manage (admittedly non critical cause preseason) game situations. What's his offense look like at full speed? Does Trubisky seem comfortable with his system? - Heisman winner Lamar Jackson's NFL debut. I don't care if it's preseason; football is back!

    Football Premier League 2018/19

    Just a few hours away from the big kick off, going to be a great season I think. Manchester City have to be favorites to retain the title, but Liverpool have strengthened their squad and could run them close. Other teams to watch out for are Wolves and Fulham, who have made some ambitious signings since getting promoted. Everton also look to have a much more balanced squad after their busy transfer deadline day and will be pushing for a top 6 finish. Fixtures: http://www.skysports.com/premier-league-fixtures
  16. I'm surprised Ray has managed to keep this shtick going for as long as he has. And, lest we forget, Ray "obstructed justice" in a double murder investigation. If you're keeping score, the Pro Football Hall of Fame has two inductees "linked" to a pair of double murders (Ray Lewis and OJ Simpson) and one inductee who all but definitely murdered a guy (Marvin Harrison).
