    Iced Keg wears the 2013 crown. He'll pick the Colts every week this year so he's low hanging fruit for all you ersatz pigskin prognosticators.

    Tall Guy's wounds still sore from the bitter week 17 defeat.

    Menik hung around but it was really a two-horse race.

    Fourthisto could not back up the pre season hype.

    Shaxspear rallied but had nothing in the tank at the end.

    I beat GoFuckYourself by four games but still ended up buying him a beer this year. (How did that happen?)

    Bobert did not finish and had to be euthanized on the track after week 12.

    I guess I'm in again. Hopefully go back to my 2012 picking ability instead of my last years.

    I'm irresistable, that's why.

    Also, my recollection is we bought each other multiple beers.

    I did a playoff fantasy challenge last year and I obsessed over players every day, it was fun and I took 3rd among my coworkers, but I can't imagine going into a full season fantasy league. I like pick em pools because I can look at it once on Wednesday evening and not have to worry too much until it's time to collect my winnings.

    I know very little about football. I usually just follow the Redskins who are my favorite team (unfortunately). When they're bad (almost always) I don't pay much attention to the rest of the NFL until the playoffs. Anyways, blah blah blah, nobody cares. This should be fun.

    Last bump before opening night.

    We're up to 18 suckers.

    Name the last SB Champ to lose on opening night of NFL the following season.

    Looking forward to defending the title. ^ They should get me at least 11 wins.

    I was going to say that but does the first Sunday count as opening night? If not well then it isn't the Ravens because they didn't play the Thursday night opening game last year. Unless of course you are referring to their previous SB s win.

    She doesn't miss a game, I guess.

    The poor Ravens had to go on the road to Denver last year to defend their SB honor and got poleaxed on the Thursday night NFL Kickoff game. The Orioles, who were well out of contention, would not change their game time to help out their neighbors.

    I did see the game, but I wouldn't have known had I not just watched Top 100 Players of 2014 on ESPN last weekend. 7 TD passes by Manning was a pretty impressive stat, so it stuck.

    I like beer.

    Nope. I knew it was Denver as the home team. I knew it was some controversy on how the Ravens didn't open up the season at home. Sorry if I can't remember every single game detail from last year.

    Week 2 seems fairly straight-forward to me with not many surprises... I'm only saying this because it'll probably get blown to bits... maybe 2-3 coin-flip games, but otherwise I think we're reaching if you're picking the underdog. Maybe not much changes to the standings after this week?

    Crombrenner takes down week one over Locachica with the help of a lower numbered tie breaker.

    JorgeC forgot his picks but still gets 6 wins (tie for last) because of the "Unit Rule."

    Looks like Fourthisto and Menik had bad camps and weren't ready for Week 1

    Don't forget the Thursday night game, y'all.

    I am in 3 pools, two for money and this one. I switched up a couple picks in the others and ended up taking second and losing out on the cash in the other two. I am still kicking myself. Not that bragging rights aren't great, but I could really use the money.
