Let the drama begin (Matchup Meltdown)

Postby SniperShot » Tue Sep 09, 2008 5:58 pm

And so another quest for Matchup Meltdown glory begins...

So another trek through football wilderness commences...

Another exciting journey of football matchups starts...

Exciting and exhilarating moments blended with enduring and emotional moments...

Moments of pain, moments of despair...

Moments where you realize all hope is lost...

Moments where you come to understand your hopes have been dashed...

Moments where you vow to come back and do better next year...

Moments to shine, moments to fail...

This is Matchup Meltdown. This is 2008.



As always with a flair of drama I kick off another thread for Matchup Meltdown discussion. All that's missing is orchestra music and a voice over...

9 picks right out of 16 for week 1, I'll take it. Last year Jay and I managed to get 15 of the 16 right though... Jay decided to use his bye in week 1 this year, an interesting strategy. Maybe not an entirely planned strategy ;) but a strategy nevertheless. Week 2 looks tough at first glance. Might take a while to decide on which games to go with.

One things for sure- I won't be dumb enough to pick against Brett Favre on Monday Night Football this year with my last remaining pick.

Week 2 was brutal to pick. The teams that would normally have been favored (NE, SD, IND, etc.) have some tough matchups and the people I expect to win are all on the road (my top 4 ladder picks are road wins). :-P

Not to mention that Dallas is playing Philly so the normal safe picks have tough or road games.

Yep I agree, not even 1 real easy or safe pick this week. I could easily leave this week with 3 picks left. :-o

6 picks left going into week 3... Not very good but I suppose it could be worse.

There are people down to 2 or 3 already. 8-o :-o A very rough start to the season. :-o

I've got 7 provided the Cowboys win tonight, and with so many upsets and things, I feel quite lucky to have that many left. :-o
