Time for a Baltimore win.

Postby SniperShot » Mon Oct 31, 2005 11:02 am

Not counting the MNF game tonight:

Sweet Sixteen: currently out after week 8: 14 players, 8 of which had a bye.

Left in the championship:

2 players with 4 picks

20 players with 3 picks.

57 players with 2 picks.

80 players with 1 pick.

Total 159 players left IF Baltimore loses tonight…

If Baltimore wins which would defy reality how many sweet sixteen players would kick the can? Didn’t Houston have a tied game with Indy at halftime last week? Didn’t San Fran beat Tampa this week? If Baltimore finds a way to win this guess how many people would be done? You don't have to guess because I already did the research.

After sifting through the 11 pages of picks:

36 players would be cut… 36 lives hinge on this MNF showdown and I would be surprised if it’s a Steelers blowout like some people are saying. Baltimore always seems to show up on Monday night especially when it’s the Steelers they play. Should be a good game and hey: Anything can happen on Halloween night! Even if Ray Lewis and Ed Reed are gone the Ravens could still find a way to win... I don't know about you but I have 2 fantasy players and a defense in this game tonight plus I'll be rooting for Baltimore to knock out those 36 people. Wow I can't remember when my fantasy games were on the line plus there was this much pressure going into MNF. Big time game tonight hope it's a good one...

Go Baltimore!!

Yep, a lot of guys' seasons hinge on this one game. I still think the Steelers will come through with the win, though...

Steelers are 10-0 under Cowher at home on Monday Night.

The Ravens stink, and they are without their two best playmakers on defense.

I understand this is a division game, but with all the things given here, as long as the Steelers do not take the game lightly, they should roll in this game.

And yes, I only have one pick left also. This is starting to look a lot like last year. Here was my remaining pick breakdown last year:

16, 8, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 1, 0.

I blew it with one week to go before the life preserver and didn't use my bye. :-B The stupid Giants decided to tank a game they were winning by double digits in in the 2nd quarter to the Bears.

This year has gone like this:

16, 6, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, ? (hopefully 1).

If I make it to next week, I WILL be taking a bye and will take Indy to beat Houston to make it to the promised land. B-)

That would be pretty funny if more than half the players don't submit picks the week after next just to make it.

You gotta bow to the almighty life preserver, man! Image ;-D

That's the one I've wanted for over two years now, and I'm not going to jeopardize it like I did last year. :-)

That was one huge collective sigh of relief I heard at the end of the Steeler game. :-D
