To put it bluntly, Jay knocked us all out cold this week. He owned us with his lone upset pick of Cleveland over Jacksonville, and joined only Beth in picking Minnesota to finally get its first win of the season. Jay was in last place only two weeks ago, but now moves into a first place tie with Phil, who has made less obvious but still impressive moves toward the top. The rest of us got beat over the head this week. Ray, who had a week-leading record of 11-3 last week, tanked with Susan and Alan to get a below-500 mark this week. Of course, it doesn't help when easy-money games like Indianapolis vs. New England go all wrong, or when the Ravens pull off an impressive victory in Denver's imposing home. But as they always say... "That's why they play the game."

Kerry: "Shannon, instead of the Cowboys, please change my team to Jerry Jones. After all, this is about him, and not the Cowboys. Oh, wait a minute. If you put a picture of his face on your website, it might not work anymore. Nevermind. I'll stick with the Cowgirls."

Email quotes from the week:

Alan: "Kerry knows that he can never overtake me. I am the greatest!"

Kerry: "Usually Sneary talks loudest just before he goes crashing down. Alan, get a parachute."

Kerry: "It is fun to see what my Arch-Enemy [Shannon] has picked before the weekend's games. May Miami stomp the crap out of the Rams. YOU ARE GOING DOWN BY A POINT!"
