And, off we go. Can't find an option to email last year's participants so this is the only notice. Using your DTF username will keep some of us from cursing you on a regular basis.

I had one week - ONE WEEK! - where I forgot picks and it took me out of contention.   I'm setting reminders and notices, and THAT mistake won't happen again!

What I loved about this were two things:  it gave me digital proof on line in a league that I had been in for years (because I did the same picks in a handwritten league),....and.... to show that I do know a thing or two as to my knowledge of picking games, even though I do not offer many opinions on the NFL thread.

Stadler.......I sympathize.  I was holding my own, staying within a few games of second, plus or minus a game or three of you throughout the season, even after CoolChris grabbed an insurmountable lead.  And then I missed a Thursday night pick and two Saturdays near the end.  I stupidly went really crazy on my picks the last couple of weekends to try and make up ground (like an idiot.....FAIL !).

Went from 3rd to 6th somewhat quickly.  Still proud of what I did in the end.

And....if you look at the 'survivor' pool.....Dr.DVDT and I set a record for the longest tie before his ultimate win.  BUT....I picked the Browns to beat the Chargers in Week 16 (won five bills on that one).....so, I feel I get a free pass this entire season if I make a totally goofy pick or two ;)

Same here. A buddy and I have been doing this nearly 25 years playing for a bottle of firewater. We switched to this online version for simplicity. There is a downside, though. Things become quite a bit more strict. In the old days if one of us got a pick in late it wasn't really a problem. We've both overslept and whatnot, and neither of us are going to cheat the other. Thursday night at 7:45:

Dude, you know there's a game, right?
What? Fuck. Uh, Bengals.
Alrighty, then.

A marathon, not a sprint, but finally, for one week, I sit alone atop the leader board.

Picking up where I left off last season, I am doing terribly.

Eh, I wouldn't go that far. It's early.

And something I just noticed, Houston and Cincinnati have let down every participant in the first two weeks.

Apparently last week was pretty easy to pick - 4-way tie with 13 correct calls.

Methinks this week is gonna be a tad tougher.

I'm doing terrible. What else is new?

I'll stick through until the end though, unlike SOME people who do poorly...
