Week 3

September 26 - 27

Getting pretty much what I deserved after all my mouthing off for the past couple weeks, Brad, Joe, Jason, and Kip did the best they could to kick me right in the tail. Each of them scored a very admirable 11-3 record, while I flunked out with a poor 8-6 tally. Granted, it's not like this contest exactly allows you to plan butt-whippings for fellow contestants. One week you might be the giver, the next, likely you'll be the recipient.

So, a three-game swing throws Shannon back down into a tie with Alan for third place. Flying under the radar, Jason sneaks into second. But the truly interesting development is the new tie for first, shared by Joe and Brad. Oddly, both players had the exact same picks this week. Over the next couple of weeks, it will be intriguing to see which player makes the first move - and whether said move bears the mark of genius or foolishness...

Speaking of bright/dim picks, this week certainly brought its fair share of surprises. Kip and Tracy win "Pick of the Week" honors by taking Houston over KC - that one was almost completely unfore-seeable. However, Tracy and two others had solo disaster picks. Mike was the only one to pick Arizona over Atlanta (so close!) Cody alone wanted an extra L by taking SD over Denver. And only Tracy was bold, yet careless, enough to take the Lions over the Eagles. The Jags' win in Tennessee shocked pretty much everyone, except Lloyd, Shane, and Mike. However... those same three were also the only ones to take Tampa over Oakland. You can't win for losing, guys! As for group blanket picks, every-one correctly guessed Minnesota and Seattle (even Tanya, painfully going against her Niners).

Here are some player quotes from Week 3...
Shannon: Give up now! It will make your inevitable failure easier at the end. ;-)
Tracy: After last weeks ass whipping, it would be pretty easy to give up...
Kerry: my brief visit to the cellar is to get things ready for your arrival.
Brad: Will we receive taunting messages as long as you are in the lead? What happens when you relinquish your tenuous hold on 1st? Just curious. LOL
Shannon: The taunting messages are most fun ONLY while I'm in the lead! So of course they will continue... until one of you slackers takes the initiative to dethrone me!
Cody: I'm no longer going to talk trash...however, just keep in the back of all of your minds... this is MY year... and there can be only one winner!
Tanya: What if I just walk downstairs and beat the sh*t out of you? Would that stop the messages?
Kerry: I'm willing to pay $ to see that!!!!!
Tony: Remember the grade school playground? Remember kids trying to get other kids to fight by chanting: Fight, Fight, Fight... Iíll drive over and me, Kerry, Satish, Joe, etc. can follow Tanya into Shannonís cube and can start chanting.
Tanya: Every one at work knows me so no one would be surprised and they'd know Shannon had it coming! Shannon could commiserate with Brett after that A$$ kicking they took from the Bears. (yes, I realize SF is 0-2!!!)
Shane: Worst start I've had in a long time. I may have to start listening to the lady in my office who picks teams based on their color schemes.
Jason: Shannon going down like the Titanic.
