Steelers are good especially once they get their whole team together.

I'm surprised that only 2 people picked the Jets this week. I mean it is the Jets, but the Colts looked horrible last week.

Bell + Bryant + Ben playing like he has lately = decently scary team on offense imho. Defensively they might be incomplete, but honestly no team is complete at the moment, and many are FAR from it.

I have a feeling things will look way way different by midseason. There will be lots of panicking and general confusion, but the final stretch of the season should see some big streaks put up by the best 4-6 teams in the league, while the others largely tailspin.

Recovery-wise (of the 0-2 teams so far) :

Seahawks : They should be a contender for the NFCW, but the weaker O line is a concern. They miss Kam. 10-6?

Colts : They look fairly bad, but they just played back to back games against teams with solidly great defenses. Their division is a joke. 9-7?

Eagles : Deep systemic problems. They gutted their O line, they have no WR talent to speak of, their RBs don't fit the system, and the QB looks lost. Putting in Sanchez in THIS mess of a division I think nets them an 8-8 or 9-7 run, but they may lose so many division games along the way that it doesn't matter.

Giants : They are likely to be healthiest and most put together the soonest in the division imho, even if there will still be holes. Possible 10-6, but that would mean 10-4 the rest of the way, so I think 9-7 is more likely.

Ravens : I don't follow them, I have no idea.

Texans : Hah. Put Watt in at QB and then we'll talk. Even their defense this year has been giving points like crazy, and Watt hasn't broken a game open yet.

Lions : In that division? Even dropping Suh, they shouldn't be this bad. They are clearly regressing, and Stafford is beat up. I heard in the game coverage earlier that he is going to play in Denver. BIG mistake. If the Vikings defense beat him up, who just got done making SF's offense look like a Super Bowl contender, then Denver's D is going to wreck his world. 0-3 start, and then they travel to Seattle, who should have Kam back and be very, VERY pissed off? 0-4 start. Dumpster fire.

Bears : Dumpster fire.

Saints : Dumpster fire. Brees is banged up, and there just isn't talent at any level in that organization right now. They will finish with a lower record than WAS, bank on it.



What in the actual fuck happened this week?



Terrible week as far as picks go and the Colts look like they will be worse then they where last year.

ANNOUNCEMENT - Week 2 Results and Standings

When was the last time that the Buccaneers, Redskins, Jaguars and Raiders all won in the same week? But that wasn't the only crazy thing that happened this week, so we are looking at the worst results in the history of the prediction league that goes back to 2012. People with a positive record are marked green while no-shows are red.

Following these devastating results, the standings don't look pretty either. The leader's current win percentage (.625) wasn't enough to make the playoffs last year, so that should give you an idea how bad things are after week 2. Only eight people managed a top 3 finish in both weeks so far while eight people are still scoreless.

Week 3 can only be better. Hopefully.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I dropped 21 ranks in one week. All-time record. I am so proud.

Well, damn, if you miss too many games there is no longer a chance to win and the game becomes boring. Was out of town and so I guess I am out in week two. Oh, well.
