  1. Obviously the marquee game to watch this week is the 9-1 Chiefs at the 9-1 Rams. Sadly the game won't be played in Mexico anymore so the fans can actually go to the game now.
  2. A crazy week for the MGT sees Alpha1Cowboy reclaim the #1 position! The leaderboard has been shaken with several big leaps up and a few brutal falls. It's anyone's game! -= WEEK 10 RESULTS =- Feature Game - Carolina Panthers (+4) @ Pittsburgh Steelers Someone call the ASPCA because a bunch of cats were murdered in Pittsburgh Thursday night. Bets on the Steelers win. QUESTIONS 1) What will be the first scoring play of the Feature Game? Panthers TD, Panthers FG, Panthers safety, Steelers TD, Steelers FG, Steelers safety, or other? ($2,000 for the correct call) The night started off well with a 20 yard TD pass from Cam to McCaffery. Little did they know... (Carolina TD). Kal-El814 and Greatoneshere were the only players to call this one correctly. 2) Keeping the offense on the field: Which team in the Feature Game will have a better 3rd down efficiency (percentage of successfully converted 3rd downs)? ($1,800 for the correct call) Pittsburgh converted on 72% of their 3rd downs to only 36% for Carolina. Calls on the Steelers get the money. 3) Name the player that will score the first touchdown in the Buffalo @ NY Jets game. And by 'score' we mean "the player holding the ball in the end zone". ($2,000 for the right name) Lesean McCoy scored on a 28 yard run off tackle for the first of the game. Nobody saw Shady coming. 4) Name the NFC East QB that throws for the most yards this week. ($1,800 for the correct name) Yup. Wentz. 5) Call the winners: NY Giants at San Francisco Washington at Tampa Bay Jacksonville at Indianapolis ($1,800 for EACH correctly named game winner, $3,200 bonus if you call all 3 correct) Only Jose and mikechorney called the Giants to beat the Niners. Nobody got all 3 correct to earn the bonus. 6) Which team will score the MOST points in Week 10? ($2,500 for the correct answer) The Steelers edged out the Saints by 1 pt on this question, hanging 52 on the Panthers. 7) Punters are people too. Which punter will have the longest boot in week 10? ($2,500 for the right name) Michael Dickson had a ridiculous 68 yard boot for the Seahawks. I'm actually shocked that 4 players got this one. Good job. 8) Name the player who will rush for the most yards AND the player that will have the most receiving yards in Week 10. ($5,000 for each player named correctly, $11,000 bonus if both names are called) Winning for both rushing and Best Name, Cleveland's Nick Chubb tallied 176 yards on the ground while Philly TE Zach Ertz pulled in 145 through the air to become the first non-WR to take the receiving title this season.

  3. I made this thread earlier just for the Dez news. I doubt anyone cares in the end though. Thursday game looks good for a change. The rest of the week not so much.
  4. 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
  5. Almost forgot there is an amazing game between two 1 win bay area teams tonight.
  6. Judging by this schedule there seems to be a lot more tricks on the list. Green Bay vs Rams, New Orleans vs Minnesota looking like the highlights of the week. New England gets another prime time game and against Buffalo this might be an ugly one to watch. And do we think the Browns and the Steelers can tie again?!
  7. Some big bets and some great predictions scrambled the top half of the leaderboard pretty heavily this week! Out of the fray comes Alpha1Cowboy who climbs to the top of the hill going into the half-way point of the regular season! -= WEEK 7 RESULTS =- Feature Game: The Broncos trampled the Cards, blowing away the -2.5.

Teams on a Bye don't count, smartasses.

  9. That's right, you might have forgotten this was a thing but we have our first international game of the year! I'm sure you'll all wake up early to watch this electrifying matchup between the Chargers and Titans! (Turns out it is the second but I'm leaving the original text for shame purposes)
  10. A huge shake-up in the standings this week as Biggie is finally knocked from his perch and BasemntDweller2 takes his place atop the leader board!

  11. Only two undefeated teams are out there, Rams and Chiefs. On the flip side there are no winless teams through 5 weeks which is impressive going by past seasons. So either a lot of teams are equally as bad or the bad teams got better.

    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. TNF game shows promise this week. If it is the Vikings from two weeks ago it should be good if it is the Vikings from last week it should be bad. Two undefeated teams playing this week.

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!

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.

  21. https://deadspin.com/texas-school-superintendent-gets-racist-on-facebook-abo-1829171001? Coach Bill O'Brien responded to this comment:
  22. 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?
  23. 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!
