That's about it. The winner gets... ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! You know, except for bragging rights.

I'm picking Pittsburgh to win tonight.

Great! Just what I always wanted! Haha. Seriously though, it sounds like fun. I'll join in on that. Did you guys see that the Raiders picked up Richard Seymour from the Patriots by giving them their first round pick of next year? I'm so stoked. Seymour is perfect for fixing Oaklands run-stopping woes. IF he shows up anytime soon, it is gonna be amazing. Discuss.

Right. It's usually customary to post your pick on every game all at once, like so.

Tennessee at Pittsburgh: Pittsburgh
Miami at Atlanta: Atlanta
Denver at Cincinnati: Denver
Minnesota at Cleveland: Minnesota
Jacksonville at Indy: Indy
Detroit at New Orleans: New Orleans
Dallas at Tampa Bay: Dallas
Philly at Carolina: Philly
Kansas City at Baltimore: Baltimore
Jets vs Houston: Houston
Washington at Giants: Giants
San Fran at Arizona: Arizona
St. Louis at Seattle: Seattle
Chicago at Green Bay: Chicago
Buffalo at New England: New England
San Diego at Oakland: San Diego

At the end you tally up the results and if someone wants to put everyone's stats together to keep track, all the better.

It's a shame that Tennessee lost last night as they were the obvious better team. Oh well, those things happen I guess.

Kind of a copy and paste from Holla.

Miami at Atlanta: Atlanta
Denver at Cincinnati: Denver
Minnesota at Cleveland: Minnesota
Jacksonville at Indy: Indy
Detroit at New Orleans: New Orleans
Dallas at Tampa Bay: Dallas
Philly at Carolina: Carolina
Kansas City at Baltimore: Baltimore
Jets vs Houston: Houston
Washington at Giants: Giants
San Fran at Arizona: Arizona
St. Louis at Seattle: Seattle
Chicago at Green Bay: Chicago
Buffalo at New England: New England
San Diego at Oakland: San Diego

Might look like I only changed one, but that's because I did lol. I agreed with all the rest of your picks.

At the end you tally up the results and if someone wants to put everyone's stats together to keep track, all the better.

Yeah, I'll do this and every Tuesday I'll make a list of who's in the lead and whatnot. I actually planned on doing that anyway. :P

Just make sure to post your totals though.

Damn. That sucks. He'll probably still make the Pro Bowl for how well he plays in the games after that though. Haha. That dude is such a machine. Anyways, I'll make the roster for anyone who wants to join in on the pick game. I'll probably just make it in this format if it sounds good to everyone else.

#Ranked | Total | Gain This Week | Average Per Week | Username & Rise/Drop
I'm thinking a Win = 1 point, Tie (albeit rare) is .5 points, and a loss is worth zero. And at the bottom I'll have copy pasta for the next weeks games schedules. Expect them on Tuesdays after Monday Night Football.

Here's my picks for the week.

Jaguars @ Colts: Colts
Lions @ Saints: Lions
Cowboys @ Buccaneers: Bucs
Eagles @ Panthers: Eagles
Chiefs @ Ravens: Ravens
Jets @ Texans: Texans
Dolphins @ Falcons: Falcons
Broncos @ Bengals: Bengals
Vikings @ Browns: Vikings
Redskins @ Giants: Giants
49ers @ Cardinals: Cardinals
Rams @ Seahawks: Seahawks
Bears @ Packers: Packers
Bills @ Patriots: Patriots
Chargers @ Raiders: Chargers (As much as I hate to say it.)

Don't make it very complicated, but you can do it if you want to.

1 point in your win column if you get a win, 1 point in your lost column if you pick wrong, and ties should go right in another column named ties of course. I don't think you should get points for a tie as it actually means two people lost in my opinion, but I guess it doesn't matter because everyone will get the same amount for that anyway.

Rank us like a normal list and maybe include the information like, "Most right in a week", "Most wrong in a week", etc..

Alright, I made a template, more for myself than for you guys, but you can take a look at it and see what you think. There's a most number of wins award, and a highest win% award (so people who join late have something to shoot for) And anyone who wants to join in at any time feel free. Just make sure you have picks for EVERY game before kickoff of the opening game each week. It's not fair if you only make picks for whoever is playing the lions. :) Enough of this though. I've been craving an Angus Deluxe burger from McDonalds all day. I'm out of here. Haha.

I think that the Steelers-Titans game shouldn't be counted for our activity because a lot of people didn't make picks until during or after that game. Plus that way, more people can get in on this before the Sunday games start.

But... I guessed that one right... Haha. No, I agree. The due date for the Week 1 picks is 12:59 AM Eastern time (which is also Newgrounds time) this Sunday. I say that because 1 o'clock is the kickoff for the first games, and once the first kickoff of the week starts, the picks should be locked in for obvious reasons. Until week ten, the first kickoff of Sunday is the first game of each week. In November those damn Thursday night games kick off. We'll probably just vote on those separately. Sound good to everybody? As of right now there are 7 people participating.

I'll agree with the whole not counting the game this week as not only did I get it wrong, but I also agree with your reasoning behind it. I'll still keep track of it personally, but I won't post it in the thread.

Richard Seymour STILL hasn't reported. This shit is starting to piss me off. If he's not there in 5 days, he's eligible to be suspended for the whole season. We could have used him against San Diego so much, but there's no way in hell he's gonna be ready by Monday Night. What a bitch. :/

According to this article that came out today, he says he's on his way to Oakland he just had to take care of other issues, like help move his family to South Carolina . ... Right
He says he'll play on Monday Night but I'm with you. I don't think he'll be prepared.

That article came out after my post. Haha. Thanks for putting that up though. I breathed a nice sigh of relief.

He says he'll play on Monday Night but I'm with you. I don't think he'll be prepared.

They said he's in perfect shape and apparently he's got a chip on his shoulder... God I hope that this situation gives the raiders a moral boost coming into this game. 2 of the last 3 years we've had a monday night game to open the season, and it always ends terribly. Not to mention we've got an 11 game losing streak to the chargers. :/ An excerpt:

Seymour plans to play in the Raiders' season opener on "Monday Night Football" against the San Diego Chargers. "I'll be the guy on top of the quarterback," he said, according to the report.

Well last week was a bad week for me. First Ohio State's defense can't hold USC and then the Browns let Adrian Peterson run all day.

At least the Browns offense scored a touchdown though.

Sometimes it's better to be lucky than good.

In week one? I think he gets one more week and then he gets the hook if he implodes again but I really don't know who they can replace him with. It's not like they have a quality backup.

The biggest issue that came out of Sunday's games was McNabb's injury. He fractured his rib and they can't use Vick until Week 3. It's going to be interesting what they do when they play Saints next week.

A pretty quiet day for Farve. I guess you don't have to do much when you have Adrian Peterson mowing down people for a 64 yards TD. :)

Passing CP/AT YDS TD INT

Passing CP/AT YDS TD INT
K. Orton 17/28 243 1 0

Granted Denver was playing a worst team and everything, but you do also have to recognize that Orton was playing with an injured throwing hand and they had noted that his accuracy was poor and to be honest you really don't know who's better than who and who's good or bad until teams get a couple of games under their belt.

But I'm pretty sure we all know Denver won by luck and that Cutler played very poorly. As a Denver fan though I hope this continues even though it probably won't. Denver just seems to get lucky when they play.

I've also realized how nasty the Philly Defense was and was surprised at the scores that Detroit and Cleveland put up as I thought they would lose worst. I was also surprised at how Sanchez moved in the pocket to look like he's been a pro for a couple of years now for the Jets.
