    Tonight: New York Giants @ Washington Defensive Football Team and Some Random Guys on Offense

    Are they trying to deliberately tank Thursday ratings?

    I think that has the potential to be a good matchup. I am looking forward to it. I will be flipping to this game during breaks in the Ohio U vs Lafayette game. Go Bobcats,

    I'm not sure, the defenses might put some points on the board.

    I'm in the funny position of being a fan of Heinicke. He won me over when he took over when Smith got hurt. He's a real competitor ... but one without much of an arm, I think. He can't have the top spot for long.

    If I am reading his stats right, it took 6 games with the Panthers for him to finally throw for 300 yds.

    Greetings!

    I'm going to send out the reminders at about noon. I think I have enough Picks already in for this week that I don't mind doing Reminders the slow way so that people who already picked don't end up with them.

    Thanks! The non-duplicative way is easy enough when a bunch of people have made their Picks already. It's when only a few people have that it actually becomes faster just to send a reminder to everyone.

    Note: I feel like we're missing someone this week, but given that this is Week 2, it will be easy to figure out who it is from the standings after the week is over. Unfortunately, there were zero new entries this week, as far as I can tell, which takes UnJon's added prizes off the table. Who knew that so many people wouldn't want to come and snatch up some EV?

    Lots of love for Dallas and Houston. In fact, no one likes the Chargers or the Browns.
    Lots of love for the visitors.

    Variance is sometimes an enemy and sometimes a friend. With two games to go, I'm 4-0 (one confidence) so far this week! I don't think I've ever started a season of this game 8-2, so I'll definitely take it!

    Their loss is everyone else’s gain. I hereby donate $100 to the pool, to be used to increase the perfection bonus in weeks 9-18 from $10 to $20.

    Good luck all!

    That's awesome! Thanks UnJon! If we have weeks such as Week 2, then that can get pretty big!

    What would you like to have done if there is no 6-0 record in Week 18 (and any other weeks leading up, if applicable)...the way I handle the perfection bonus, I just end up keeping that money.

    In case you missed it, I think Ed Collins posted this on the Official WOV NFL Pick'em Contest thread by mistake.

    Not sure who normally would post the Week 3 results and updated standings in this contest but it looks like it has slipped between the cracks. A breathless forum waits.

    In any case, lots of appreciation for whomever does this: I understand they get paid even less than the moderators!

    They are probably waiting for all the games to be played before posting the results. Dallas crushing Philly but game not over yet….

    My fall from grace will be sudden and painful

    The pressure is now on Johnzimbo, as I will be betting all 5 of his picks next week on FanDuel.

    Don't let me down, Johnzimbo!

    I have picked the Chiefs all three weeks -and once as a confidence pick - and they haven't covered the spread once. What a disaster.

    I started out in 16th place, fell to 17th and now to 18th. So, um, . . . I am really stinking up the contest. I can't seem to get the hang of what is going on this season.

    Even FastEddie, the so-called AI bot, is ahead of me. Mission just went 0-6 and yet he is still ahead of me. AZDuffman started out by announcing that he would be terrible at this -and he is ahead of me. I'm just an epic fail.
    So many better men, a few of them friends, are dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things live on, and so do I.

    I don't know what the hell happened. I was 8-4 going into the week, but if you include my last two Picks last week, I am 0-8 in record and 0-7 on actual Picks. I seriously hope nobody is Martingaling my Picks. There's the magical seven in a row...and past result would suggest I am more than 50% to get it right.

    Or, maybe I'm not. I wonder if this will be the year I regress to the mean?

    now you gotta go for the "you suck" prize. Yeah, instinctively a player wants to say "no way" but there's money involved!
