Come one, Come all. Let's have some fun.

This one is just strictly heads-up score. If there's enough interest I thought about setting up an "against the spread league" which I don't think we've done before.

Any interest in this?

I'm in.

You might think about starting a thread on the main page. If others are like me, this might have slipped their mind. The only reason I remembered is because my regular FFL draft caused me to wonder, "Hey wonder if the TT Pick 'Em league is going this year..?

And are there two pick 'em leagues this time; vs. spread and straight up or just the straight up??

I only joined one and I think it was straight up. If there's another, I want in.

Just the heads up right now, didn't seem to be much interest in the spread.

I'll start it and see what happens.

I'm in. I guess "pick 'em" leagues will be all I have this year. Hell by the time I realized it was FF season it was too late to join a league!

I'm in dead last with 3. :spit:

I'm the guy in the back of the class, chewing gum, laughing at the straight-A's at the front of the class. :bubbles:
Straight-A's? The leaders are 7 of 11 in the early games. Nobody seemed to get the KC, Chicago & New England games right.

I know I didn't see Miami jumping on N.E. like that and I sure as hell didn't see both K.C. and Chicago losing at home.

Picked seven "upsets" this time; hit on five of 'em.
Should have stayed with my gut and picked Seattle at home. Had it picked then changed it.
That's what I get for listening to them damned "talking heads" on the tele.
Still 13 of 16 ain't a bad week. Back up to within 5 pts of #1.

We're comin' for ya JC!!

You had a nice week. I only went 12 of 16. It was the 2nd week I picked 12 correct.

I did the same thing with the Arizona-San Francisco game. I had Arizona picked and I decided to change it. I don't think I'll be picking against Seattle at home..

Got JJ?
I believe the New Orleans Saints were put on this planet to screw my picks and survival picks...lol. I'm still in survival (I have Dallas tonight), but New Orleans is worth a strike a year in that game.

I was doing pretty good when the 3:00 PM games started to roll around. I was 10-0 in games started before 3:00 and 1-3 after.

Yeah, I looked in around that time and saw you were perfect to that point. I would have high-fived you if I could have.

There were quite a few underdogs I picked this week that just seemed obvious to me.

Cincinnati was at home against a divisional opponent they beat on the road. Tough game but I saw no reason to not pick the home team in it. Although, I'll readily admit a cheap pass interference call saved this pick.

Buffalo was a dog against a Jets team that simply doesn't have a QB. I didn't even think about picking NYJ in this game but I've been picking against the Jets in survival almost every week.

Two of the biggest toss-up games to me this week were Minnesota/Tampa Bay & Philly/Arizona. Both games came down to the wire.

Indy & Green Bay also seemed like obvious picks and I was wrong in those games, but so was the rest of the league. Only 5 picked New Orleans correctly and no one picked Pittsburgh.

Tampa Bay has QB issues and frankly, just has had no luck AT ALL this year; so I went with Bridgewater.

I decided AZ at home was a better pick than Philly on the road.

I wouldn't bet on the Jets if they were playing Rice. That's yet another hard (as in NONE) luck team.


EDIT:
And I STILL hate these freakin' Thurs. night games.

A few tough games to pick this week, for me anyway.

Arizona at Dallas- anyone know the status of Romo yet?

Denver @ New England- Does Brady have the weapons to keep up?

Baltimore @ Pittsburgh- always a tough game

Last I heard he was questionable-slash-gametime decision. I'll hazard a guess and say they will give him a shot in his lower back just before the gametime and he'll play (being careful since it's so close to his brain matter and all). :kitten:

I think Brady is good to go. I'm not doubting him again until he's missing an arm or something.

Hell, I'm already down one because the Saints finally learned to win on the road.
Broncos/Pats and Ravens/Steelers are tough calls. I'm leaning home team right now. But I'll have to see which teams are the gimpiest come game time before my final pick.

Romo is not playing but I'm still not sure how much of an effect it will have on this game. The Cardinals are not usually a high scoring team and I think the Cowboys can win this one at home with Weeden as long as they're running the ball effectively. I did have this game as a "1" in my confidence league before I knew Romo was out, though. My pick: Dallas.

Manning has more weapons on offense and a better defense. This game will likely come down to one of these defenses getting a crucial stop and Denver has the better defense to get it. My pick: Denver.

You're right, this is a tough AFC North match-up. Easily my favorite rivalry in the NFL right now. I usually go with the home team in this game especially when they're playing good football. With that said, Tucker will probably hit a game winning FG as time expires to win it for the Ravens. My pick: Pittsburgh.

Another toughie is Chargers @ Dolphins
Seems like the Chargers would be a no-brainer pick
but I don't know if I trust them when they have to travel cross country
wonder if it's real warm in Miami today
