    This past weekend the Colts-Pats game was big. Really big.

    Not the game -- neither team being 7-0 made it a little less dramatic -- but the premiere of a new Peyton Manning Commercial.

    If you missed it (if, for example, during commercials you were too busy using a thesaurus to look up new ways to say "Fire McDaniels" in the Official Game Thread) Peyton was shown enjoying free hotel nights, while snide comments from hotel porters and maids went completely over his head.

    Which made me wonder: by commercials like this one and the immortal "cut that meat", Peyton has made a career of looking like a really nice dumb guy. Yet during games he stands at the line, waves his arms like a madman, and shouts babble usually ending in "hike". And is hailed as a genius. What's wrong with this picture? When will the 98% of NFL commentators who think Manning is Albert Einstein reincarnated catch on to the fact that the commercials show the real Peyton and the shouting and arm-waving is just an act to pretend he's actually doing something? I don't get it.

    Anyway, there was indeed a Pats-Colts game between the commercials, and we lost a close one. Often we when lose opposing fans or Pats contrarians win, but this week the top six got the winner wrong but still almost predicted the correct score. This is a big part of the Predict the Score contest: predicting the general way the game will play out is as important as picking the winner.

    A trio of players missed by just 6 points: Calciumee, PatriotDynasty_12, and PATSNUTme. But one player did better.

    Congratulations to this week's Predict the Score Winner, jgpatriot!

    Season Standings

    A bit of a shakeup in the season standings, but things are closer in general as 31 players are now within just 3 TDs of the lead. Bostonian1962 is back in first place, jbb9s climbs to second with his predict-a-tie strategy working... so far.

    The * means you have used your allowed one skip week. This week the average score was 14 points.

    Just a thought - for next year.

    Rather than hand a person who misses a week the average score, just give everyone a mulligan with their worst score/missed week. Why reward a person who didn't make a prediction with a better score than half the people who did make a prediction?

    Or alternatively, place a limit at the maximum number of points you can be off by - say, the 75th percentile, or the 90th percentile, or 20 or 25 points, for example - and also make that the same number of points given to anybody that misses a week. In addition, if people miss more than one week they won't be eliminated - but it will be challenging for them to catch up.

    From 2nd last week to 64th this week. This here predictin' business is harder than it looks. I don't mind being wrong; it's the losing I can't stand. So when being off by 15 points is added to a bitter, unneccessary loss...in what bizzaro world again was the HC of the NEP living that persuaded him to believe that settling for FGs 3 times out of 4 trips to the RZ was a proper recipe to defeat the dolts, in Indy?

    Clearly. my week victory is like an 0-12 team beating a 11-1 team. Nice but it does not move you much in the standings (79 to 66). :p

    Screw the focus on the next game, I will enjoy this small victory for a while.
