This week was much more stable than others we've witnessed recently. Fully half of us finished with 10-4 records, and only one of us scored below 500. The upset bug didn't have a lot of bite this week, helping to keep most of our picks in the "W" column. Dallas, Cleveland, and Tampa Bay tried to pull off upsets, but were denied. However, the Jets and Chiefs were more successful and together handed each of us two losses. But overall, this week was extraordinarily dull, resulting in the least amount of change in the winners' circle in the contest thus far. Kerry and Alan remain leading the contest, while Phil and Tony drop a game back as they each finished 9-5.

Email quotes from the week:

Cody: "I saw that you changed my logo on my name... I hope you tell everyone that TAMPA BAY is what I started out as and you were the one to put GREEN BAY on there in the first place. I do like GREEN BAY... if you would have left GREEN BAY as my logo, I wouldn't have minded at all! I just don't want anyone to think I'm a fair weather fan..."

Tony: "This is getting pathetic. I have no freaking clue who is gonna win or lose week to week. Oh well, here is my roll of the dice. . ."

Brad: (he missed a pick last week) "Let's see if I can manage to pick all of the games this week (and I don't even mean pick them correctly!)."

Shannon: (to everyone) "As soon as you get your picks in, you can sit back with everyone else and enjoy the butt-whipping that will occur this weekend as I go 14-0 in my picks."

Kerry: "We'll see how accurate the magic darts were this week... I need to get one of those magic 8 balls. Probably would keep giving me 'Try again Later'."
