I picked a lot of 'dogs this week.  That didn't work well for me last year, but we'll see.  The first week is always tough, because emotions are high, dreams haven't been dashed yet, and players are still finding their legs.   We'll see!  Nothing like starting the season in the hole!

Not sure if I will participate this year. Another kid in the house and waning interest in the NFL means I won't be following as closely in years past.

I wanted to do this, but signing to Yahoo just for this? No thanks.
And you may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"

I don't blame you. I've had my yahoo acct for 20 years, from way back before they needed your life's story to sign up. Creating bogus accounts is hard now that everybody requires a phone number. One of my projects is actually to pop $20 for a burner phone just to register a new slew of anonymous yahoo and google accounts.

On the bright side, kit appears that Yahoo will now automatically import your picks from different sets. Now you only need to fill in one and the others will be auto-filled. That would have helped last year when I borked the standings by being a careless oaf.

I might still do this for myself, for a bit of fun. I did it for a few weeks last year, but I started late (week 7 or something). It might be interesting to see how I get on starting from the beginning.

I'm still on a high after my perfect week... last year?  The year before?  Can't remember.  I'm never going to be that good ever again, so why bother trying?

Plus, lol-NFL.
I didn't know I could handle another 10 inches and it was rough but in the end I'm glad I did it.

I'm repeating myself, but it hasn't changed:  this was a tough week to pick.

It's not like anyone has been on fire this year.  Three of us were tops last week at a whopping 9-7.  At this time last year, most of us were +30 in correct picks.

2   Splent  28-18-2
3   Destiny of Chaos  27-19-2
4   Rattlehead    27-19-2
