Results are here. Converting the spreadsheet to html is a pain in the neck. Any tips, email is in the profile. Onto the results. Congrats to Monica Poland who moved into the lead after getting 9 points. Also congrats to all who made perfect game predictions: Monica Poland - Chargers by 4 and Catfish - Patriots by 11. This weeks picks: San Diego Chargers at New England Patriots - Sun 3:00 pm EST on CBS. New York Giants at Green Bay Packers - Sun 6:30 pm EST on Fox. This weeks bonus, scored the same as the games, which team's punter will punt for the most total yards and how many yards will that be?

Oh, and trox also had a perfect game prediction of Giants by 4.

Wow, I've never got to pick in a round first before! Lets see if it helps or not. OK here it goes! New England by 21 Green Bay by 19 Bonus Mike Scifres, from San Diego with 248 total Yards.

A herculean task, apoch! And thank you for the bonus questions, they're keeping me alive. I'll be back on Friday, by which time the crystal ball will no longer be cloudy.

I will buy a beer for anybody who picks Chris Hanson.

New England by 17 Green Bay by 10 San Diego punter has an even 200 yards because he will be busy. Apoch, thanks for this play-off pick 'em. Much fun and an opportunity to display my underwhelming mediocrity in all it's glory. And I accuse Monica Poland of using POP'eED's. Don't you dare throw your trainer under the bus.

I will buy a beer for anybody who picks Chris Hanson. Given that I'm not likely to win, I'm so very tempted to take you up on this. As long as I can choose the beer, that is. (chimay reserve -- and he did punt once on Saturday, so there. But as Madden once remarked of Hanson, "That man has the best job in the NFL.")

LBB, that's exactly what I ordered at the Beijing Grand Hyatt1 bar last month when I had an hour and 130 RMB to kill. 1. No, I did not stay at the Hyatt, was just passing through.

New England by 17 Green Bay by 12 The San Diego Punter (What, you mean it's not my compatriot Darren Bennett anymore?) for 190 yards. BTW, I believe I scored 3 points in the first week, so can the spreadsheet be adjusted?

No, you are on Australian points.

You mean from this angle my '6' is really a '9' this week? Cool. Thanks.

It should be fixed owlhouse. Thanks for pointing it out.

Patriots by 17 Green Bay by 10 San Diego/Scifres with 201 yards Wow, it wasn't until I just now put in my choices that I noticed a fair number of 17 and 10, San Diego with around 200 yards picks. Either we're all mad... or we'll all a collective genius!

Hey, I think my points need adjusting, as well. Seems I should probably have a 0 where my 2 stands. Basing that purely on self-awareness of my own capabilities, not past performance. My only regret is that, getting in too late, I can't win me a Costanza. NYG by 10 NE by 13 Who's punting for GB these days? I think he'll go for about 214.

posted by Texan_lost_in_NY at 01:10 PM on January 20

I can't believe the Pats took a knee in the last minute. Why- was it just to avoid injury? The game was won; even an interception run back for a touchdown couldn't win the game, so why not toss another 7 on there, or at least try for it? I'm just bitter because for the second week, the Patriots turned it off once the game was decided, blowing my chance at making the damn SpoFi pick-'em spread.

posted by hincandenza at 05:27 PM on January 20

Oh, and to add insult to injury, not only did I not hit the spread in the Pats game, but Green Bay's Jon Ryan outpunted Mike Scifres of San Diego by 3 yards, 193-190, to take away THAT pick as well. Only two people even picked the GB punter, although a few got within a couple of yards of the actual total, and owlhouse actually picked the exact yards of San Diego's punter (190). Christ, this is why I don't gamble with real money. :)

I hate this game.

Sorry for the delay in posting the standings everybody. I'm swamped right now. I'll have the standings and new picks (including the extra special super bowl bonus) up by Sunday night at the latest.

Thanks Apoch, no problem at all with the delay.
