I have been debating whether I want to participate this year or not. I figure it can't hurt to throw a bit of season opener support behind my team though.

Funny, I was thinking the same thing this morning (that I ought to participate, not that the Packers are my team) AND will go with the same pick:

Packers over Vikings

you could always make it double elimination?


in memory of Tommy:
Giants over the Cards

can we change our pick before the game we chose starts, so long as we meet the dead line for the next game?  Im sorta iffy on this giants pick, I wanna see what ESPN says :)

Looks like the "conventional wisdom" took most of week one off. Good luck to those who remain.

I think someone made a second contest for those who got eliminated early last year.  Kinda like a toilet bowl tournament. 
Ajax should have been named Warlord, not Swan.

First off, Hoopz is right.

As usual, week 1 was the hardest week.  Now the hard part is figuring out if teams like the Eagles are really that good or if teams like St. Louis are really that bad.  Last year the 49ers started strong and fizzled fast.  What can the Patriots do without Brady?  Why did the re-tooled Jets need a last minute interception to beat 1-15 Miami?

A few opening day observations:

1.)  NEVER count on Cincinnati to either win or lose
2.)  When it comes to the chargers, see observation #1.
3.)  Tommy is still an idiot.

I did, not that it helped.  I actually switched off the Pats thinking Brady might not play... and switched to the Colts.  Sadly I was 2-3 on that compound prediction.

We can run a second one after this one is over if people want.  I have like 4 copies of each of those games.

markvp speaks truth here. I made the foolish leap of faith based on the rookie QB factor of the Ravens, completely ignoring the fact that the Bengals have spent more time in the spotlight for shenanigans than anything else. Happily my Steelers more than made up for my horrible pick by playing a complete game in only 3 quarters. Gonna be another fun season.

Slim pick'ns this week.

I gotta wait and see if anyone gets hurts in to today's game.

I was very tempted to save New England for this week.  Luckily my pride refused to let me get kicked out in week one.

So what exactly happened to Brady's knee?  ACL?  They are not disclosing apparently.

Poor Charger fans, I saw the end of that game. You could have heard a pin fall on carpet when he caught that TD.


You should have been at Gilette Stadium, then, when Brady grabbed his knee.  People weren't even breathing.

Shoot...I chose the Chargers in week 1 of this, and Brady was my QB in fantasy footbal  :'(

Yes, and rumors of MCL partial tear as well.  The usual pattern is that he's out for 2008 and spends 2009 playing weirdly.  If he ever gets back to his level of play from most of his career it probably won't be until at least halfway through 2009.

I live about 3 minutes from Gillette Stadium.  I'm tempted to driver over there, stand by the players' entrance, and hold a big sign that says WINNING REQUIRES A SPLEEN.

Nah... even if Young goes further off the deep end they still have Kerry Collins.  He's better than Simms.

EDIT:  interesting... Wikipedia says he signed with the Titans but the NFL does not list it in the transactions log.  Can we say agent trying to make the Patriots make a move?

I heard it on ESPN last night, before even looking at Wiki, so there could be more to this.

Wonder why the transactions log is so unreliable this year.

Just got this in an info service email:

Quote
Vince Young - QB, Tennessee Titans

Updating a previous report, ESPN.com reports that the MRI on Tennessee Titans QB Vince Young's left
knee revealed a sprained medial collateral ligament. The team is not giving him a timetable to
return, but quarterbacks can return in two to four weeks. Minnesota Vikings QB Tarvaris Jackson
returned from a MCL tear in two weeks earlier this year.

Kerry Collins will step into the starting role, which means Tennessee receivers
can reclaim at least some measure of fantasy relevancy. The Titans also signed Chris Simms as
insurance. Young has battled a variety of injuries during his brief NFL career, playing through
several, so his time frame for return could certainly fall on the short end of the two- to four-week
spectrum. However, it sounds as if Young has some issues beyond the knee to deal with as well.

It's probably not as much about Brady as it is Belichek and his arrogance.  Not only to cheat, but to get caught and use the standard 9 year old's answer of "I didn't know it was against the rules".  Then the fact that they would run up the scores last year, being an ass to everyone after games were over, the b.s. of the injury report etc.  How ironic is it that it was the first time in 50+ weeks or whatever that Brady wasn't on the injury report and he got hurt?

Ajax should have been named Warlord, not Swan.

Did anyone see the Broncos Chargers game? Cutler fumbles the ball with 1 minute to go, but because the ref blows the whistle and calls the ball dead, the fumble somehow gets overlooked and forgotten about. This is the dumbest rule ever, "I blew my whistle, so no matter what happens, my whistle is right" stupid. So. to make a long story short, the Broncos end up winning the game when they never should have had the ball and in effect, ruined and corrupts the NFL and both teams records. The ref even all but admitted he made a mistake. Fine, you made a mistake, but that does not mean you continue on and let the mistake go and have the wrong team win the game.  :dizzy:
