OH BABY. No one gives up game-winning turnovers quite like my man Lamar!



As much as I hate the Ravens, that loss sucks balls because Lamar was clearly limited by the coaches and that O line. Tough loss

My take aways from week 1

KC is a super team. I dunno if you guys watched that game but the Browns took it to them for 2 - 3 quarters. But the fumble, and botched punt were enough for KC to come back and win. You truly have to play a perfect game to win them

Lamar's talents are going to be wasted if the coaching doesn't adjust

The Saints are scary, I almost believed they were good because of Drew, but nah. They are a complete team

If GB loses to Detroit, Rol should start to worry

Jalen Hurts and Tua are good enough to lead their teams to victory regardless of what talking media heads say about them

... I thinkt Josh Allen is definitely overrated if he plays like he did week one in the coming weeks

It's not the coaches fault that Lamar can't pass from the pocket to save his life. That's the problem. He's a one trick pony, and in the NFL, one-trick-pony's do not win Super Bowls. The league is too good and too well coached for that. It's the same reason why Vick couldn't win.

Run-first QB's are great for the highlight reels, but they're too easy to figure out and stop.

ANNOUNCEMENT - Week 1 Results and Standings

View the spreadsheet with all collected data here. Check your own statlines and let me know if there are any mistakes.

Heroes of the week: Level1Death (2), Shaunodon (2), Angelus (1), NobleTeam360 (1), sethnintendo (1).

This season's week 1 was a mediocre start for the prediction league with only six positive records. However, the new Hero Pick rule had quite a high success rate with 7 out of 15, that's 46.7%. People without successful hero picks landed exclusively outside of the top 3 records, so maybe an ounce of risk each week might not be so bad. Then again, valuable stats are only formed with at least one month of data, so that's what I'll keep an eye on. This year's spreadsheet has a new table for hero pick statistics, just to mention this once more.

The week 1 standings do not differ much from the above table, but they do take into account the PP values instead of records alone like the results above. That's why the rankings differ a little bit.

Looking ahead to week 2, most matchups seem clearcut at a glance. On one hand this is bound to lead to many similar sets of picks, but on the other hand it opens up more opportunities for hero picks.



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