Week 1 Prediction Games: New Regime & Saints Domination



bignerd here, I've taken over the score keeping part the contest from howtheyscored.  He deserves a huge round of rec's for taking on this task the last few seasons.  I'm quickly learning what a massive undertaking this job is and I certainly understand why he baited some sucker into taking it over.

As new scorekeeper I can assure you a few things. 1) Spelling errors, grammar failures and "Is English even your first language" moments are all par for the course, I apologize in advance. 2) I've challenged myself to add some new features to the scoring results.  Expect slow but steady improvements as the season goes along ... this week I just hope to survive. 3) You can always ask questions about the scoring and contest rules. I'll do my best to answer.

Enough of the administrative housekeeping, let's get to Week 1 contest results.

Thoughts on Week 1

Initially I thought we had made fools of ourselves and I should be selling this list of losers to a bookie in Vegas. After all, only two predicted a Seahawks victory. However tallying up the final results, 49 out of 78 participants scored points. Its mostly me who should be an embarrassed and ashamed. I'd apologize but I don't have a twitter.

The Week's Big 5 Prognosticators

  1. SaintsFanInIraq - The Saints fan but military hero perfectly predicted the Houston 34-24 victory over shameful Indy. In addition, anticipated the pitcher's dual in the Ravens vs Jets game. He would have looked like a real genius with a Showcase Showdown prediction of 1-0 ($1 ploy).
  2. DuikeBuike - One of two who predicted the Seahawks victory, not even Fearless Frog high off licking Lofa Tatupu's back would have predicted the Seahawks! Also best prediction in the CIN @ NE game, thanks for the garabage points Carson Palmer! Keep an eye on this guy
  3. rlott#42 - My boy! May not have foreseen Taylor Mays dropping to the 2nd round, hasn't been around all that much with travel plus a crappy internet connection but he knows his football. Another perfect score in the Houston vs Indy game. He's also been touting the Seahawks for weeks, he just didn't pick them.
  4. ezoo - Don't know much about this cat but keeping my eye on him now. Was all over the Chiefs on Monday night while scoring well on the Ravens vs Jets and Bengals vs Patriots. Hint, cheat off him next week.
  5. these3words, snowweasel30, price14rays, AKinferno - Deserve some recognition for a strong week. If they weren't tied at #5 I'd talk more about them but I don't have time. I had to build this score recap from scratch while cutting and pasting every bit of this report!!! I want my life back.

If you didn't make the Top 5 and want attention (like tre9er always does) than make a stink in the comment section. Explain how great, terrible or Seahawk survivable for 25 minutes you were with your predictions or whatever ... I don't care. Be assured I will take notice.
