Hognostications 2012

Talk about the AFC, NFC, the NFL Draft, College Football... anything football that has no Washington Redskin relevance.

All-in-all I'm glad we went online but a few thoughts for next year.

1 No big deal but switch to Yahoo!

2 If a guy does not submit picks give him the worst score of the week minus 1. So if a guy forgets or can't get online and the worst score was me going 5-11 that guy would be assigned 4-12. That way a guy doesn't quit after missing a week. Somehting like this should be an option.

3 Change the end-of-year tiebreak. The current one weighs late weeks over early weeks which is not neutral and actually kinda backwards since some teams sit a lot of people in the late weeks.

Thanks for running things.

Me too. This was another game I wanted to change all week, but couldn't bring myself to pull the trigger. I can't believe Seattle gave their game up. This is the week of the visiting team.

Same mistake here. But it is not an unreasonable mistake. Jets had played strong games over the last two weeks.

Sanchez and Ryan have reached the limit of patience with Jets fans.

very difficult to predict the outcomes when the team that shows up does not play or execute anywhere close to what they've been doing
Minds are like parachutes, they only work when they are open

Robert has to make a huge effort to show he's got what it takes to be a future great QB - we need the real RG3 not the hyped version

Hail to the Redskins

I bet Norv Turner is not the HC of the Chargers next season. :twisted:

I do not know if you guys saw a terrible dropped pass which could have given them a chance to win against the Browns but plays like those and putting the whole team in that mess is not going to cut it with the owner.

Me thinks the FO of the Chargers goes as well (deservedly so).

Okay, time to set a limit. Anyone who continues to not pick through the end of the byes is done.

I thought they were done already.

All you need to be done in this competition is NOT to pick a single week.

Yes.

What about that suggestion for next year about giving a guy who misses a week the worst score of the week minus 1. Any thoughts?

Looks like Justice will win :(
Good week this was. Just missed us, TB over OAK, and PIT over NYG (can't say that last one upsets me :twisted: ).
