Week 2 NFL Pool

Sep 22 2009 Published by under Uncategorized

Week 2 of the NFL season is in the books and we had a clear winner this week, no need for a tie-breaker. Mad Hatter pulled out the win from the rest of the pack by getting 10 predictions right and being the only one to take the Bungles as 9 point dogs. Shockingly, not only did they cover, they won outright which proved to be the difference. Nipping at the heels of MH were a collection of 9 win predictions by PiT, AA (both performing well using unconventional metrics for picking), Nat, Mrs. Comet Hunter and myself. So confident are Candid Engineer, Genomic Repairman and Tideliar, they decided to give the rest of us a head start and made only 1 pick combined.

Like the Stanley Cup being passed around, it's time for Mad Hatter to hoist the trophy.

    I know I didn't have a good week, though I haven't checked to see how bad I actually did. Glad to see my Jets came through.

    Gotta say I'm pretty darned happy with how my "unconventional system" is performing right now!

  • Odyssey says:

    Damn coffee grounds... Their picks SUCKED.

    I suggest making the coffee grounds pay by pouring boiling water over them.

    it was a dark week for the hope and dreams ;)I honestly don't understand why my picks got THAT bad the second week but I will go with an old acting saying "if the premiere is great, never go to the second showing since that will inevitable suck. The third time though, it is all back to good". here's to hoping that works for me next week :)and congrats MadHatter!

    Sadly I am the fucktard that forgot to save their picks and didn't notice it until yesterday morning. Besides I prefer not to lead the pack but rather bask in the medium lit lukewarm glow of mediocrity. Enjoy, you are all welcome.

    I suggest making the coffee grounds pay by pouring boiling water over them.They were unceremoniously dumped. Hopefully they are now a pile of moldy, festering, worm-ridden compost.*Damn it. Now I'm going to have to read the bloody sports section... * Worms on a caffeine high!

    MUahaahahahahahahahah!!!!!Unconventional? Who cares!?!?

  • Prof-like Substance says:

    For those who didn't get their picks in, the settings allow for one week to be dropped, so you get a pass this time. GR - At least the one pick you did get in was a winner.

    Congrats to MadHatter - my goal is to just improve week to week 😛

  • chall says:

    Alyssa< I would love to improve from this week anyway 😉

  • Candid Engineer says:

    Um... totally forgot. Will be dropping that week I guess!!

  • tideliar says:

    What a clusterfuck! I realised on Saturday night I hadn't done my sodding picks. and then the whole weekend went "Twilight Zone" NFL anyway...The Steelers & the Titans lose? The jets beat the Pats? WTF is going on?
