    Whelp.... The Quickie Standings after Week One are:

    Biggie 1.006
    Chris 1.004
    Raven 1.003
    Rich G 1.003
    Thanks, Rich.

    On to week two.

    Oh. And STAFFORD!! Way to git'er done, son!!

    Rules:
    • One pick per week
    • Your chosen team must be at least a (+3) underdog (Only games listed in this column are eligible)
    • Your chosen team must win the game outright (no 'pushes' or 'covers')
    • Season winner is the one with the most upsets correctly chosen between Week #1 through the Conference Championship Games (20 weeks all together)
    • There will be a points system to determine a winner in the event of a tie
    • Points will be accumulated by adding the game spreads for your correct picks (if you take Carolina (+4.5) and Carolina wins, you will be awarded a win and 4.5 points). Be careful making picks based on the number of points possible. Points only count if you are tied for the total wins lead when the whole contest is finished.
    • The No Upsets Option: Predict correctly that 'No Upsets' will occur in any given week and you will be awarded one win and a point total equal to the sum of all the spreads in that week's Upset Special. If you wish to exercise the 'No Upsets' Option, that prediction is due by 5 minutes prior to kickoff of the first game of the week in question. This includes Thursday Night Football or Saturday games. The 'No Upsets' option is confined to the Upset Possibilities listed in this article.
    • Picks are due no later than 5 minutes before the scheduled start of the broadcast time for your game. The FootballPros.com time stamp on your post is gospel.
    • Spread lines, once posted, will remain static throughout the week. This isn't The Sports Book at Caesar's Palace, after all.
    Let's. Get it. ON!!

      God, I hate that song.

      I'm on either the Jags or the Eagles. Let me think on it for a bit.

      Somehow I completely missed this. Been a busy weekend.

      Guess my only option is the Eagles, so why not?

      Still time to get on the Eagles tonight.

      Raven scored 3 with the Cowboys.

      Amy, Brain and Ragar nailed the Iggles last night for 3.5 points.

      The rest of us? Negative, Ghostriders.
