    Is this season over yet? Someone who missed an entire week will soon pass me. My only solace is that I have more that Bill. Oh wait, he didn't join this year's contest or he'd be kicking my butt, too. Good luck to those fighting for 1st place. And Gretchen, your perseverance and solid picking will probably propel you above me soon! Good luck!

    I took a shot at picking the Colts yesterday, seeing how Tyrod Taylor was not playing for Buffalo. For those who missed it...

    0-0 Game, Colts miss a field goal (I know the weather made it nearly impossible, but still...)
    7-0 Bills take the lead, then their #2 QB is knocked out of the game, so their #3 QB comes in
    7-6 Bills - Colts score a TD and go for 2 and most likely the win, and they make it. But is is called back for Pass Interference, so they settle for the extra point and the the game 7-7.
    Colts get one more chance before the game ends, but they miss another field goal. We go to Overtime.
    Bills are setting up for a chance to win with a FG, although that was a big risk. Shady McCoy breaks loose for the winning TD, and the Colts lose 13-7

    *sigh*

    Your mistake... to think that the Colts might win a game...in a snow storm...in a tsunami... in a tornado...ect.

    You noticed how they wasted time at the end of regulation with the ball at the Buffalo 40?

    Why try for a rushing TD when you can try a 50 YD + field goal in 6 inches of snow??!!!

    You only have the #5 all time rusher in your backfield...Like Seattle in the Superbowl with Lynch!! LOL

    Thanks. I guess it is a little consolation after getting killed in the fantasy playoffs.

    Very excited to have defended my title this season. I always hate picking Week 17. After the Eagles blew it in the early game, I didn't know if my late picks were going to hold up. But the Falcons and the 49ers came through for me. Thanks as always goes to Bill for sponsoring all of these competitions every year. Looking forward to adding another trophy to the shelf.

    Damn! One game out of third. Congrats to the winners, particularly Elazansky who essentially went wire to wire.

    I led at one point this season. I'll take that.

    Congratulations to ELazansky... amazing!!!!

    Thank you Bill for putting shit together!!

    Lots of fun but I'd like to see the contest continue through the playoffs. It might be easier to predict the playoffs than to predict week 17!!!


    Thank you to all participants!!
