First off an apology. Incredibly sorry for not posting a thread for the chance to make Week 3 Picks for the Cincinatti game. I do these on the weekend, yet found myself whisked away for a snowboarding trip and unable to get to a computer.
My sincere apologies, and to be honest pretty damn pissed off due to the implications of the divisional game.
Anyways, we are still playing, and I hope for that to be the only occurance.
Below are the results and standings from Week 2 @ Chicago, where a hard fought game saw the Steelers lose momentum late defensively, as well as miscues on offense and special teams, led us to a disappointing 17-14 loss to the Chicago Bears, who took the oppurtunity to capitalize on our mistakes.
Was also great to see the number of participators rise from 62 - 86. I am really happy to see so many enthusiastic and competitive participants.
Congrats to TheCommish and Catesinator for correctly, and boldy, picking the Bears as winners in the game.
Also congrats again to TheCommish who stood alone at the top of the weekly score, scoring a very low, very impressive 2 points! Many had picked blowout victories, but the end result was a close, defensive orientated grind-it-out affair.
The Wooden Spoon award for Week 2 belongs to our very own loyal contributor, PixburghArn, who predicted a high scoring affair which was not to be, suffering a 34 point score for his debut in the competition.
Below are the Weekly Rankings, and the Main Standings. Note that the Average Score is the more important stat of the two at this stage, due to new players participating. By seasons end, the average score will be the winning stat, but only to those who participate in at least 10-12 weeks of action
WVPiratesFan is our leader through 2 weeks, with an average score of 4 points, however with TheCommish having a very impressive debut week in the competition, Im sure there will be a lot more parity between results
Still plenty of time for those lagging behind to catch up. Cant say im happy at coming 38th in the game i created : /
Heres the results:
