Hognostications 2011 Season

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

I'll submit your request.

Thanks! I really appreciate that it was well intended. As I mentioned before it's just my personal taste.


:shock: c'mon Kaz - there are a few here that know you better than that

The Redskins need to change to improve - we need a better GM and we need to do a better job of who we bring in to coach and play here - players and coaches need to be held accountable when they do not do their jobs well

I play in a money pool and in THAT pool I have correctly picked our 3 losses. I saw it posted that no one has ever Hognosticated against the 'Skins and gone on to win it all.

Is that true?

I picked the Bills for money this week.

Don't know about EVER hognosticated against the skins... but no one who has ever hognosticated against the skins has ever won in that season. That is a fact. The small sample suggests that the former is true, as well. Karma is a fan of loyal hognosticators...

My son's soccer team has also correctly picked the Skins' three losses by losing their game each of the three Saturdays before the Skins played and lost. For this reason, I am guaranteeing a victory today Vs. the Bills. 8)

This answered my, perhaps, poorly phrased question.

and to be clear - hognosticating against the Redskins here is ALL that counts - looks like the 'rule' will hold up again

been a VERY tricky year, this one :oops:


ONE THING has been very easy to 'predict' again this season

Hoss has done a fantastic job running this again

thanks bro - much appreciated by all


happy New Year to you all
The Redskins need to change to improve - we need a better GM and we need to do a better job of who we bring in to coach and play here - players and coaches need to be held accountable when they do not do their jobs well

Really? How? Who has obtained more top 3 places in this tounament through theyears? Have you added all the wins over the whole set of Hognostications? Can you post this number if you have it?

That is true and credit goes to you for that. But the previous one? Mmmm Doubt it very strongly. :hmm:

Absolutely, I can back it up. I'll have to go back through my posts, but I did a tally a couple of years ago and it wasn't even close. You and I were neck and neck for the title at one point, but you dropped out mid-season one year, and I pulled away.


Ok, so I finally have some spare time on my hands, and decided to go back and do the research to back up this claim. Here are the results:

Year 1

1. 166 - 74 Redskin in Canada
2. 160 - 80 Texas Hog
3. 157 - 83 joebagadonuts
4. 156 - 84 JSPB22
5. 152 - 88 Redeemed
6. 147 - 77 Chris Luva Luva
7. 138 - 72 SkinsJock
8. 137 - 73 Justice Hog
9. 129 - 95 1niksdeR
10. 125 - 81 skinz74
11. 119 - 79 FanfromAnnapolis
12. 108 - 72 Punu

Year 2

Ok, so I'm having a hard time finding results from this year. It was the first year using the software, and there were glitches. The Hosgnostications section is frozen at week 7 of year 4, and some links to blogs in the above threads are no longer active. Above are several links that gave me hints at totals. A couple of years back, I went and found the totals, because I wanted to compare my totals to RiC's. At the time, I had tallied his first 4 seasons at 608-326. So subtracting his other years' totals, I came up with 147-95 for his year 2 final stats. From my playoff thread, I know this was the final rankings for that year.

1. HOSS
2. airhog
3. funbunch
4. JSPB22
5. joebagadonuts
6. Redskin in Canada 147-95
7. Justice HOG
8. JPM36
9. TincoSkin
10. Dangerfield
11. Mursilis
12. EA7649

8. TRO 124-88 58.5%

10. ChrisHanburger 152-104
11. Hoss 150-106
12. SkinsJock 143-113

And, although my claim was made before this season, here are this year's totals for completeness:

Year 7

1. DarthMonk 167-89
2. Hoss 166-90
3. andyjens89 165-91
4. DesertSkin 164-92
5. Redskin in Canada 162-94
Warmother 162-94
7. Deadskins 157-99
8. tribeofjudah 155-101
9. BigRedskinDaddy 153-103
KazooSkinsFan 153-103
11. SkinsJock 152-104
12. vwoodzpusha 133-123
13. 1niksder 125-131

So, as can be plainly seen, I am the only board member who has competed, and finished in the top 12 (actually top 7 :wink: ), in all 7 seasons, so my claim to the overall lead is also justified.
