Nice picks, Lynn.

I knew you were having a good week but not a 1st place good week. Good job.

Tight bunch at the top after 3 weeks.

6 points between 1st and 5th.

It's a rare one for me. I'll revert to the norm by this weekend.

Yeah I am with you on that. As of now I am near the top of the leaderboard. Regression to the mean is certain to happen.

Should be a 5 point deduction any time someone uses the highest weight against the Vikings.

Maybe double the penalty if that highest rating is FOR the Packers.

Boy, I am MORE than happy to have picked wrong in the Chicago v. Carolina match up. And next week the Bears go TO Seattle, so that will be a very tough game for them.

Have to hope for losses in the division to counter our own, you know.

Because everyone picked Seattle I am better off with them losing tonight.

Be nice to finish the week with only one game wrong - like a champ! - but I will lose ground.

Stupid Ian showing off, taking away the shine of such a great week picking. All luck on his part though.

I seem to be inadvertently spreading some misinformation. The Bears play at Falcons next week. I don't know how I got that mixed up except that I did notice a shift in the magnetic field around my house. It might have been that. Still a tough game for the Bears I hope.

It's not really a mistake when you come back and correct it, so I'm still batting 1.000!

People are idiots. You know how on the picks pool site it shows what percent of their users are picking which teams? Right now it shows that 76% are picking Detroit and 24% are picking Minnesota in this weekend's game. I expected it to be something more like Minnesota 60%, Detroit 40%. Not a runaway or anything like that - but geez. I'm picking Minnesota and giving it my 15 rating. Pooh!

You're surprised?

After the debacle in Green Bay... Vikings looked like defenseless farmers. Offense couldn't move the ball, defense couldn't stop the other team.

I fully expect the Vikings to give the Lions everything they can handle and more on Sunday.

SKOL.

Last week I was leading this thing and thought I had made my week five picks early. When I came back to check Thursday night I hadn't made my picks and it didn't allow me to pick any of the remaining games. I was thinking of just quitting but I might try to jump back in.

At least the week you missed was fairly high scoring on the low end. Highest so far anyway.

If this happens to you (or anyone else) again just let me know. I can input the rest of your picks and the only rule is that for the Thursday night game you have to take the losing team and the highest rating.

But now you get a special opportunity to show how you can overcome a missed week and bounce back to the lead!

Hey all I have just lost the desire to keep up with this. I knew I had to make my picks yesterday and couldn't muster enough ambition to do it. Good luck to all.
