It's go time baby... (Matchup Meltdown)

Postby SniperShot » Mon Oct 23, 2006 5:48 pm

I've waited a year. A full year to get back into position to survive through week 10. Last year I was down to one selection for 6 weeks leading up to week 10. I lost IN week 10 and I still had a bye... Granted this was "Sweet Sixteen" where 134 players were riding Indy week in and week out. I almost never took Indy. I took the high road and rooted madly against Indy week after week while I took another game. Eventually this caught up with me though and dashed all hope in week 10.

After that day in 2005 I vowed to come back with a vengeance.

So far 83 people have bit the dust. 83 people done. Gone. Removed from contention.

My measly two picks are suddenly ahead of many people. And pending the outcome tonight maybe even MORE.

Well my friends now is DO or DIE. With many of us choosing between 4 or even 3 games next week the pressure is on.

Who lives? Who dies? Which game WILL YOU TAKE?

Actually the better question is which game CAN you take...

All I know is come Wednesday when I open up that post in MM I'm going to be holding my breath. I've got a couple of sleeper games next week that I'm hoping like heck I'll be able to choose.

Good luck to all. I've been waiting a long while for this moment to arrive again...

I only discovered this forum this year and so i don't have any idea what that Sweet Sixteen is. What is the difference between Sweet 16 and MM? Which of them is more exciting?
Can this game be added again without removing MM?

Geez, 83 people out! Was a wacky Week 7!

Maybe we better stick with the Colts or the Bears. 8-o

Sweet sixteen was the same game only all of the games were allowed to be picked from each week. Now that new logic has been added to prevent the obvious picks from being chosen every week...it's a lot harder. I was able to make it into the playoff weeks last year...this year....out in week 7. :~(

Knowing me, after posting this I'll go on to pick the two most lopsided games next week and go out horribly.

I wonder who takes Indy this week... I had them as an option, but I honestly think they will lose.

I agree, I also had them as an option, but put my season on the line in favor of Carolina.

Now that is an option I wish I had. Lucky you. I'm laying my life on the line with Green freaking Bay and the Giants who messed me up last year. :-o
