My tongue will taste of gin and malicious intent. says:

I rule.

As a whole we actually did a good job. I saw plenty of Culpepper, Mcgahee, Mcallistar, Walker and Collins. I would say we did a good job.


Except the guy who picked Carson Palmer. :-b

Looks like my Culpepper call was right ;-D Alot of others called it though.

Wow alot of people were right seemed we had more correct predictions then wrong and predicting a player to bust is pretty much educated guessing.

Walker and McAllister don't really count, because they were bad because of devastating injuries, which you can't predict, and not bad numbers, which you can. You didn't make a good prediction; they just happened to get unlucky and you happened to be lucky. Oh, and all the people who said Antonio Gates, you must feel pretty stupid, eh? :-b

Wow, I'm pretty good at this. I said Priest Holmes was going to bow out around week 11, so I was close on that injury prediction. I also said Kerry Collins and Kevan Barlow would bust. Not too shabby, though Barlow wasn't exactly a reach.

Zippydayglow said Shaun Alexander would bust. Heheh, yeah, sure. :-b
