    Good outcome, but except for a few drives, I thought the game itself was a little below average, compared to how the Steelers and Browns games usually go, myself. But all hail Troy Polamalu! :bowdown:

    I work in downtown Cleveland, and there were a lot of sheepish faces there today. There was talk on local radio wondering what the heck Romeo Crennel was thinking at times, too. Altogether, a pretty satisfying day for a Steelers fan living among the Browns heathen--er, I mean "faithful."

    I am kind of worried about Big Ben's shoulder, however, since he refused even to acknowledge questions about it in the post-game interview. What is so bad that he won't even talk about it??? It didn't SEEM to affect him much in that game, but can he keep playing with a bum shoulder? Or will it heal soon? Hmmm.

    Ah, well, let us bask in victory while we can!

    Sadly enough, Big Ben has a history now of acting like an injury isn't a big deal. Like not long ago when he did a face plant off of his motorcycle at a high rate of speed and then had his appendix removed and went ahead and started the season. I think we would have been better off had he waited a couple game in.

    I didn't like the jolt his shoulder took and am hoping that he isn't talking about it simply because it isn't a factor. Wishful thinking, I'm sure.

    Polamalu is and incredible asset to the Steelers. Agreed with this: :bowdown:

    Go Steelers!!

    Steelers ftw. I don't think his shoulder is a problem after watching tomlin's press cofnerence.

    Hmmm, it seems like Teuf's AWOL, doesn't it? I don't know where he lives in real life. Maybe he's one of those poor folks dealing with Ike's aftermath?

    Anyway, I was bored, so I took a stab at compiling the Week 2 NFL picks.

    Here is what I counted as winners, based on info at NFL.com, in case anyone thinks I messed up:

    CHI @ CAR: CAR
    BUF @ JAC: BUF
    OAK @ KC: OAK
    IND @ MIN: IND
    NO @ WAS: WAS
    NYG @ STL: NYG
    GB @ DET: GB
    TEN @ CIN: TEN
    SF @ SEA: SF
    ATL @ TB: TB
    MIA @ ARI: ARI
    NE @ NYJ: NE
    SD @ DEN: DEN
    BAL @ HOU: CANCELLED
    PIT @ CLE: PIT
    PHI @ DAL: DAL

    Based on that, I think FireCrazy won, although there's a little bit of controversy. What was Teufel Hund's vote for PIT @ CLE??? He foolishly hates the Steelers, but was he saying so in his picks because: a.) he recognizes their mad skills and thus was being forced to pick them to win against his will, or b.) he thinks no one that evil could win and so absolutely couldn't bring himself to pick them against the Clowns--er, Browns?

    I lean toward NOT giving him credit for picking the win (sorry, pal!) in fairness to FireCrazy , but I think we need a consensus and/or input from Teufel. Thoughts?

    Here are the results I got, with the correct picks shown. Everyone, please check your own to be sure I didn't make a mistake:

    Winning picks:
    CAR, BUF, OAK, IND, WAS, NYG, GB, TEN, SF, TB, ARI, NE, DEN, PIT, DAL

    Non-winning picks:
    CHI, JAC, KC, MIN, NO, STL, DET, CIN, SEA, ATL, MIA, NYJ, SD, CLE, PHI


    Black Betty: 8 CAR, BUF, WAS, GB, TEN, TB, DEN, PIT
    FireCrazy: 10 BUF, WAS, NYG, GB, TEN, SF, TB, ARI, PIT, DAL
    Teufel Hund: 9? BUF, IND, NYG, GB, TEN, SF, TB, ARI, NE
    Insta: 9 IND, NYG, GB, TEN, SF, NE, DEN, PIT, DAL
    Kahlan_FHP: 7 BUF, IND, NYG, GB, SF, ARI, PIT
    Cynic: 7 IND, NYG, GB, TB, ARI, PIT, DAL
    Cetric GL: 8 IND, NYG, GB, TEN, SF, ARI, PIT, DAL
    Tyrtle: 9 BUF, IND, NYG, GB, SF, TB, ARI, DEN, PIT
    Yanta: 8 OAK, IND, NYG, SF, ARI, DEN, PIT, DAL
    Maximus Neximus: 8 BUF, IND, NYG, GB, TEN, SF, DEN, PIT
    Techthys: 8 CAR, IND, NYG, TEN, TB, ARI, NE, PIT

    I'm happy to throw the payment books on my single vendor at the house shown in my signature later this evening after work, if Teufel hasn't already done it at his house (I haven't checked lately.) Or if someone more well-known, and perhaps therefore more trusted, wants to volunteer, that's fine, although I won't cheat anyone. I think we should all try to pay before the deadline for Week 3 picks, which I think will again be noon Eastern time this Sunday, since the first game for Week 3 is again 1:00 p.m. Eastern, according to NFL.com.

    WOW 2 weeks in a row! WHO DA MAN!!

    I think Teuf lives in the mid west, but not sure. He IS a trustworthy guy so , Im sure he'll be back to make payments and continue his venture in the NFL picks.

    Actually in fairness I think he was choosing the steelers. He never mentions the browns, the only team he mentions is the Steelers, regardless of what he says about them. Just my opinion.

    Agreed. I think it's a tie between the two of them. :D

    This weeks games were awesome and close to watch.

    Well, except for my Buckeyes! WTH!!!!!!!!!!:sad4:

    I guess it's clear that, for now at least, YOU da man! :bowdown: Good job!

    It sounds like you're willing to wait to collect your Week 2 winnings until we hear from Teufel, so I won't put the payment books on my vendor after all. If you change your mind, maybe you can set up a vendor yourself and we losers could pay you directly. But maybe Teufel wants to keep track himself of who who has paid and who hasn't, since some people had their winnings from Week 1 carry over to Week 2's betting.

    I think I'll end my involvement for now, except maybe to start a Week 3 thread later tonight, unless someone else does it.

    -------------

    EDIT: Oops, I see now that the consensus is leaning toward having a tie between Teufel and Fire, which has some merit. So I think we really do need to wait to hear from Teufel about how to collect the bets and distribute the winnings. So now I'll DEFINITELY keep quiet--for a while! :)

    I predict Baylor Bears will win the Big 12 and go on to win the NCAA Championship.
