I do so hope Hugh Janus is able to get his picks in on time. While he's out of the running for the Pick 'em Trophy as well as the fabled Costanza, the last I checked he was at 90 degrees from reality and thus lapping the pack for the mythical "Leary Trophy".

I'm left with only one choice: go for the Costanza, 100%. I don't imagine I'll pick a single healthy, active roster player for the Super Bowl pick' em. :)

And how about dyams, whose pick consistency has not only netted him the lead, but makes him look like the downstairs neighbor of the Beast.

I'm not sure if I should be embarrassed or proud to be trailing someone who didn't even make picks in week 3. I'm not trying to suck, but apparently I know less about NFL football (which I do watch) than CFL football (which I do not watch).

posted by bender at 04:37 PM on January 20

Just like my regular fantasy season I overestimate Eric Decker, and my defensive player choices are generally wrong. Otherwise, I'm happy at this point. Tight race.

posted by dyams at 05:37 PM on January 20

rcade, you gave me a point for picking the 49ers.

Either this means the NFL has reviewed the game and reversed the final outcome because of inept officiating benefiting the Seahawks ... or an oversight on your part.
