This week was basically a tale of the "haves" and "have nots". Half of us finished with a record of 12-3 or better, while the other half of us finished with a record of 9-6 or worse. The games looked difficult to predict, but Brad, Phil, Tony, and myself each picked 13 of 15 games correctly, all tying for the week's best record. Beth keeps grasping for upsets, though, and instead grabs the week's only sub-500 record at 7-8. While she officially moves into last place, there is no similar action on the other end of the rankings. Even with a great mark of 12-3, Kerry's lead erodes by yet another game this week as Phil earns a record of 13-2 and closes the gap to one. The contest rankings could kind of be divided into three separate tiers: the upper tier of 4 players is separated by only 3 games; the middle tier of the next 4 players is separated by 2 games; and the bottom tier includes the remaining players just trying to stay above water. It has been a rough season, but with only 4 full weeks to go and then playoffs, the end is indeed in sight.

Alan: "In week #2 & #3 I punched a loss for Dallas, but I think I left a chad hanging. I'm asking the attorney general for a complete recount."

Phil: "I know the Titans are beaten up, but the Vikings defense is so bad they might not be able to stop me."

Cody: "Here you go... my picks would definitely have to go to the home teams this week, however, I have no intention on winning this week... so I figure I'd let someone else have a crack at it this time!"

Email quotes from the week:

Kerry: "If I missed one, assume I meant to pick the winner and give me credit for it."

Brad: "Let's warm up the old hedgehog and see how this goes."

Tony: "Good Luck beating me this week, HA! HA! HA! HA! HA!"

Kerry: "11 wins one week, 12 the next. But I am slipping out of first. Phil is kicking butt with his picks. Hey Phil, lets do lunch. I have some ideas on some possible upsets you may want to pick... yeah, upsets."

Brad: "The new site works just as good as the old one, but I was hoping some sort of migration error would have occurred, resulting in an increase in my win total."

Alan: "I think I did well this week. I'm coming back into dominance!"

Kerry: "I most likely will not win this thing. Phil is really on with his picks. But as long as I top Mr Sneary, I will consider this a success. I will rejoice if my wife tops Alan in the final standings."
