This is something Matty used to do every week that I liked, so I felt I would pick it up since nobody else seems to want to. Plus, I love this kind of thing!
I will be picking who I think will win out of all the games, plus one to two upsets per week. I will keep a cumulative tally for the season to see how well I do, but here's the kicker: I want 3 other Phinsiders to join in on this with me. I have to be able to rely on them to do this week in and week out, and I would like to choose consistent posters that are not already featured on the front page regularly (sorry Lefty et al) in order to help grow this community.
Anybody who is interested can email me at email@example.com with the subject header "Phinsider - *your screen name*" with your picks. Please mark one of these picks to be this week's upset pick and explain why you chose that game. I will choose 3 people to be included. Below is a list of the games:
Detroit @ Dallas (1 PM)
New Orleans @ Jacksonville(1 PM)
San Francisco @ Philadelphia (1 PM)
Washington @ St. Louis (1 PM)
Tennessee @ Cleveland (1 PM)
Buffalo @ Cincinnati (1 PM)
Minnesota @ Kansas City (1 PM)
Carolina @ Chicago (1 PM)
Pittsburgh @ Houston (1 PM)
Atlanta @ Seattle (4 PM)
NYG @ Arizona (4 PM)
Miami @ San Diego (4 PM)
Denver @ Green Bay (4 PM)
New England @ Oakland (4 PM)
Jets @ Baltimore (8:30 PM)
Indianapolis @ Tampa Bay (Monday)
Just to clarify: one's love, or lack thereof, of Henne or the coaching staff will have no bearing on whom I will select. The only thing that matters is that I can count upon you to send me your picks on a weekly basis (grammatical proficiencies are a bonus). In fact, fans of other teams can join in too, that would be ideal.
Also, I realize there are probably a few pick 'em leagues around here, but it is more fun to be able to read and comment about the picks.
