As usual it's that time of year again to provide a little flair of drama for our Matchup Meltdown field heading into week 6, In case you've never noticed I love writing like this...
Fun and games are over. If you've ever picked NFL games correctly in your life nows the time to nail a few. When the majority of us have 2 or 3 key games to pick from things have now officially gotten grim. This is where contenders rise to the top and pretenders falter. This is where the true predictors stay steady while everyone else chokes under pressure. This is where battle tested veterans wonder if they still have something in em, and the new guys eager to rise to the top and show their predictional skillz.
70 players with 1 pick remaining. 71 with just 2 picks left, still another 70 with 3 or more picks. That's clutch and it's only week 6. Last year "Go time
" didn't seem to happen till late October. This year looks like we're headed on a crash course a little earlier... I wouldn't be surprised if 40 more players hopes and dreams are shattered at the conclusion of this week.
Only the top 32 players this year get a prize. Only 32 can walk away with a shiny new addition to their stash of icons. And of those 32 only 1 can be crowned champion while the others fade away into oblivion with thoughts of 2008 on their mind in early November... (or earlier!) 211 players currently left alive, some already on life support, others on cruise control. We've seen huge falls from the top spot almost every week. DelhommesFan1 accurately predicted the outcome of all 16 week 1 games. And has yet to post since that day on September 2nd.
jayday and I shared the spotlight for a brief week, now we've long since free fallen from that spot and we've got Amazing Oopah and kmcpherson11 somehow holding on!
Now is the time to submit those picks with authority and confidence, now is the time to crush the opposition, or rather let them crush themselves, now is the time - to shine. . .
