Picks must be submitted in this discussion before the game's kickoff. So if you miss Thursday night's opener you can still choose the Sunday and Monday games.

Use these ones for now, unless I submit a new set on Saturday/early Sunday:

A correction has been made to a game result last week: New Orleans 48, Arizona 41. The change gave Ufez a 13-point lead over Tron7 that's gotten completely out of hand this week.

Tommytrump also has picks that need to be added.

Time for some higher mathematics. No, I don't mean trying to operate my slide rule (I still have my old one from college) while smoking some interesting substances. I mean really complicated stuff like addition. I now trail the leader by 166 points, and with my "smashing" win of last week, I actually made up 1 WHOLE POINT on our leader. My conclusion is that the NFL season needs to be more than 3 1/2 years longer for me to have a chance. rcade, can you call your good friend Roger Goodell and have him arrange that?

I am outraged. I am beyond livid with the wrong that has been perpetrated against me. My intelligence and integrity have both been impugned, and I will not sit here and accept that wrong without raising my voice in a one man cacophony of protest. How dare you assign to me -10 points for Tampa's loss, as if I am a fool, and would lock that pick? Sir, I did not lock that pick, and deserve a score befitting a prognosticator of my skill and cunning. 19 points indeed! I, in fact, scored 29 points! Harumph. Lock all of these suckers!!

The grievous wrong on Tahoemoj has been corrected. I can only blame my own failings. Tahoemoj remains in the exact same place, but 10 points further away from Holden and a potential threat to NoMich. So much drama!

posted by rcade at 05:24 PM on December 30

Thus, my fragile ego soothed for the time being, we move on. I hope we all learned something from this horrible experience.
