Football God: Week 13 Professional Edition

Another week in the books. Let's start with some predictions for the week. This is our first real shake up as far as Super Bowl predictions go. San Diego and Philadelphia both fell to 4-7 this week, which gives us the ability to make our first cuts in the Superbowl winners.

Bono had Philly, John and I had San Diego. It's pretty safe to assume that none of us will be winning this year. All together, there were 5 people who had one of those teams in the Superbowl, with Colin and Chris each having one of those teams in the Superbowl, but losing

Seven people had Philadelphia playing for the NFC championship. 3 had San Diego.

9 of the 12 of us had San Diego winning the AFC West, with Jim and Shawn picking Denver, and Folden taking the Raiders. As of now, it looks like those three are the only ones with chances to get points there.

In the NFC East, 9 out of 12 people picked Philadelphia to win the division, with Shawn, Simon, and myself being the only three to pick Dallas. The only person that didn't have Philadelphia in the playoffs this year was Simon.

Fantasy Football

Things took another crazy shake up in fantasy football this week. Here's your week recap.

Simon (5-6) v Folden (5-6)- This was an elimination game of sorts. Folden has been streaky all year, starting off 0-3, winning 5 in a row, and now losing 4 in a row. Folden's team has depended on Vick and Steven Jackson all year. They didn't show up and Simon took advantage of it. Simon got big games from Jimmy Graham and Sebastian Jankowski of all people.

Jim (6-5) v Andrew (7-4) -Andrew got hit with the same treatment from Drew Brees as I did from Tom Brady this year, with Brees putting up about 100 points in the two games he played against Jim this year. Jim got off of his slide to push himself back in position for a bye, while Andrew took a hit to fall back closer to the pack.

The Glove (4-7) v Adam (6-5) - I went into this game on a league best 6 game winning streak, while Munez came in winner of 3 of his last 4 games. Munez's team played well, kicking the shit out of my team. Munez moves to 5-7, keeping his fantasy playoff chances alive. In his 2 games against me this year, Munez has earned 40% of his wins, with Tom Brady scoring 102 points in the two games combined. I fall to 6-6, and my once strong team is in serious jeopardy with Fred Jackson, Ahman Bradshaw, and D-McFadden all going down to injury in the recent weeks.

Geiss (5-6) v Colin (7-4) Colin came into this game with the chance to basically lock up a playoff spot for his team. Geiss came in trying to hold onto the last playoff spot. Geiss rode the recent stellar play of Chris Johnson and was able to overtake Colin, despite Beanie Wells running for 1,000 yards this weekend. Geiss moves to 6-6, while Colin loses his 3rd in his last 4 games to fall to 7-5.

Bono (5-6) v Shawn (5-6)- This was another elimination type game, with Shawn pulling out a tight win against Bono. Bono dealt with receiver inconsistencies again, while Shawn got good outings from both Roddy White and Eric Decker. That was the difference.

McLane Bowl II
Joe (6-5) vs John (5-6)

John made an effort this week in Football God, and did pretty well for himself. John came back from his loss to Joe at the beginning of the season to pull himself to 6-6 on the season. It's amazing that if he had paid attention all year to this, he would probably be in first place in the fantasy league. John got solid play from his line-up as well a big game from Roy Helu to beat Joe.


Colin 7-5
Andrew 7-5
Jim 7-5
Joe 6-6
Adam 6-6
Geiss 6-6
Simon 6-6
Shawn 6-6
John 6-6
Bono 5-7
Munez 5-7
Folden 5-7

Playoff Scenarios

Here I'm going to detail for you guys, what each person needs to make the playoffs with only two weeks left.


Colin 7-5 vs (Andrew 7-5, & Folden 5-7)

Colin only needs one more win to clinch a playoff birth. He plays Andrew & Folden. Colin has lost 3 of his last 4, but his team is so strong that winning one more shouldn't be a problem. Also, Colin is leading the league in points, so one more win would realistically give him any advantage in a tie break situation.

Andrew 7-5 vs (Colin 7-5, & Shawn 6-6)

Andrew is in the same situation as Colin, except he's not as for sure of a thing as Colin is. Andrew is in 3rd in points, and would most likely be able to win in a tie break situation. However, you never know what can happen. What's for sure is that next week Andrew and Colin are playing in a game that will put one of them in the playoffs for sure, and have the other in a likely elimination situation in the last week of the season. Andrew or Colin could still lose out and get in, if things fall their way. But we won't know that until the smoke clears in two weeks.

Jim 7-5 vs (Folden 5-7, & John 6-6)

Jim is in a similar situation as Colin and Andrew. He has the second most points in the league, and is one win away from making the playoffs. He could still lose both of his games and make the playoffs, however it's not for sure.


Adam 6-6 vs (Bono 5-7, & Geiss 6-6)

I'm still in the playoff picture, but my team had almost a double loss this past week. I lost my game, but I also put up very few points, too. This could come to bite me in the ass in a tie breaking situation. If I beat Bono and put up a lot of points next week, I'll likely be in, however it could come down to me and Geiss, head-to-head, playing for a playoff spot.

Geiss 6-6 vs (Shawn 6-6 & Adam 6-6)

Geiss is in a situation where he controls his own destiny, and his two games left are against people who control there own destiny too. Geiss has a lot of points so a win and two strong showings should get him in. Two wins will for sure.

Joe 6-6 vs (Simon 6-6 & Jim 7-5)

Joe has a lot of points, just like Geiss and I. So, a win would and a loss would likely put him in the playoffs in any tie breaking situation.


Simon 6-6 vs (Joe 6-6 & John 6-6)

Simon has the twins to close out the season, and is pretty close in points to Geiss, who sits in 6th. Simon controls his own destiny too, but if he loses any of his two games left, he's going to need a team in front of him to lose a game to get into the playoffs. Luckily, Geiss & I play in the last game of the season, so if he loses to Joe, he can still sneak into the playoffs if he puts up enough points to win a tiebreak.

Shawn 6-6 vs (Geiss 6-6 & Andrew 7-5)

Shawn is in a similar situation as Simon, however winning out doesn't necessarily put him in the playoffs. It likely would be enough to get him in, however he would need to make up some slack in the points department

John 6-6 vs (Munez 5-7 & Simon 6-6)

John is in a pretty decent situation, because he doesn't play any of the power houses to finish out the year, and can simply win out and still make the playoffs. His biggest issue is that this dude isn't beating anybody in a tie break situation, so one more loss and he's done. Luckily, there are enough people playing teams in front of him that if he wins out he will most likely make the playoffs.


Folden 5-7 vs (Jim 7-5 & Colin 7-5)

Folden has a huge uphill battle here. He needs to beat the two best teams in the league to finish off the year, and also hope that a lot of teams in front of him lose. And, unless his team puts up 200 points each of the next two weeks, he's not beating anybody in the tie break. But, all's not lost for him yet. All he can do is finish strong and hope for the best. Folden needs to hope that Munez and Bono can win out, and that he can out point them.

Bono 5-7 vs (Adam 6-6 & Munez 5-7)

Bono is in a tough situation as well. He needs to win out, plain and simple, and also hope for the best. It's likely over for him. However, if his team can put together a couple of 150 point games, as it did early in the season, he may be able to squeeze in to the post season.

Munez, "The Glove" 5-7 vs (John 6-6, & Bono 5-7)

The Glove is winning the little engine that could award from me this year. He started the season 1-6, but is likely done for the year. However, if he can finish off at .500, just like Bono and Folden, he could find his way into the playoffs. It's very unlikely at this point for all three of those guys to make the playoffs, but you never know.

Fantasy Thoughts.

The difference record wise between first place and twelfth place in this league is 7-5 and 5-7. Two games seperate first and last, which is pretty outstanding.

Two weeks ago, Andrew was 7-3 and almost a sure thing to make the playoffs. He has since lost two straight games, and one more loss could put him in danger of missing the playoffs.

Munez was 1-6, 7 games into the season. He is 4-1 since.

Bono has only scored over 100 points since week 3 of this season.

I am 0-4 against the 3 teams at the bottom of the standings this year, and 6-2 against everybody else.

Pro Pick 'em

Joe and John tied at the top with 13 correct predictions, with me bringing up the rear with 9. Joe had 25 points total this week, and took down the 5 point bonus. Next week is the last week for the 5 point bonus for the season.

Overall Scores

college pick 'em + pro pick 'em + fantasy football 10 points per win + (bonus)= total

Shawn 146+115+60+(15)=336
Andrew 146+109+70+(10)=335

Colin 134+124+70+(15)=343
Bono 134+112+50+(15)=311
Joe 131+106+60+(10)=307
Jim 126+112+70+(5)=313
John 75+84+60=219

Overall Rankings

1. Colin 343 (even)
2. Shawn 336 (^1)
3. Andrew 335 (-1)
4. Folden 315 (-1)
t5. Simon 313 (^3)

10. Geiss 306 (even)
11. Munez 291 (even)
12. John 219 (even)

So after taking a week off, Simon and Jim are back to being tied. I'm interested to see where we all stand next week after the smoke clears on college predictions. Check your points. Check mine. Until next week, I love you all.

Football God: Week 13 College Edition.

Let's start with each conference, from the top.


Clemson vs Va Tech next Saturday

Jim's the only person that can still win points here.

WAC, MWC, SEC, Sun Belt.

None of us scored any points. It was looking pretty good for the people who picked Nevada to win the WAC, until they blew their last two games of the season.

Big 10

Wisconsin vs Mich St

Still in it: Shawn, Adam, Bono, Munez, Joe, Geiss, Andrew.

If Wisconsin wins then all 7 of us get points. If Mich St does, nobody does.

Conference USA

Thank God this one finally got figured out.

It's down to Southern Miss vs Houston

Adam, Bono, Simon are the only ones who can still win points there. If Houston wins the three of us get points, if Southern Miss wins, then nobody does.

Pac 12

Oregon vs UCLA

still in it: Everybody except for me, Colin, and Simon had Oregon winning the Pac 12. So if Oregon wins the other 9 people get points.


The cluster fuck that is the MAC sorted out this weekend too. It's down to Ohio vs Northern Illinois

Myself and Simon had NIU
Geiss and Munez had Ohio

Big 12

Oklahoma vs OK ST

It's kind of nice for the Big 12 that their first year without a conference championship, their last game worked out for them to be basically a conference championship. If OU wins we all get points. If not, none of us do, so it's kind of a wash for all of us.

Big East

WVU, Louisville, Cinci.

Pretty simple here. If WVU wins, they at least earn a share of the conference championship. So everyone that had WVU would get the points.

In College Football Pick 'em this week, Simon, myself, and Joe all finished with 12. The totals are below for the season.

Shawn 146
Andrew 146
Adam 141
Munez 141
Geiss 137
Simon 136
Folden 136
Colin 134
Bono 134
Joe 131
Jim 126
John 75

Next week, we will have all of the prediction points in for college football, except for the winner of the national championship game. I"ll be back with more totals for NFL tomorrow.

Football God Week 12. Part 2 NFL and Totals

So, week 11 of the NFL is over. I'm tired, so I'll try to get through this a little quicker tonight. Let's jump into the pro pick 'em.

Geiss won this week, correctly predicting 12 out of 14 games. Nice job, bro. Shawn and Folden were right behind with 11. So for this week, for the third time in a row, Shawn has won the bonus. He did that with 23 correct predictions this week.

Here's where we are with the Pro Pick 'em overall right now.

Colin 112
Folden 108
Shawn 103
Bono 101
Jim 100
Simon 100
Andrew 98
Geiss 97
Joe 93
Adam 90
Munez 89
John 71

Onto Fantasy Football

So, for the first week in quite awhile, there is a bit of seperation in the fantasy standings.

The playof spots in fantasy football stayed the same, but with a little bit of movement. Andrew fell from 1st to 2nd, losing to Simon. And Geiss went from 5th to 6th after losing to Jim.

Simon & Shawn, who both started off strong, before hitting pretty bad losing streaks, just rebounded and won their games.

The Glove didn't fit this week, and Munez lost his first in the last 4 games.

Also, the Football Gods have quite their smiting of both Joe and Colin, and are allowing them to be victorious again.

1.Colin 7-4
2. Andrew 7-4
3. Jim 6-5
4. Adam 6-5

Adam (6-5) vs Munez (4-7)
Andrew (7-4) vs Jim (6-5)
Bono (5-6) vs Shawn (5-6)
Folden (5-6) vs Simon (5-6)
Geiss (5-6) vs Colin (7-4)
Joe (6-5) vs John (5-6)

Overall Totals

College pick 'em + Pro Pick 'em + Fantasy 10 points per win + (bonus) = Total score

Shawn 135+103+50+(15)= 303

Football God Week 12. Part 1? Plus, the state of Oklahoma's Championship hopes Crash and Burn...see what I did there

So, as long as I can stand it, I'm going to start doing 2 part blogs. They are just so long, and by the time I get to the end of them, I no longer give a shit. So, Sundays will be College Day, and Mondays will be Pro day. Let's start with the NONSENSE that was college football this week.

The BCS became the BCMess this weekend, with #2 Ok St, #4 Oregon, #5 Oklahoma, and #7 Clemson all lost, opening the door for just about every team in the top 10 to have a chance to make the BCS championship. On another note, how shitty is it to like college sports in Oklahoma today. Friday Oklahoma ST lost, Saturday Oklahoma lost, and also Ok St's women's basketball coach DIED IN A PLANE CRASH! Apparently, these guys haven't been appeasing the gods. They should have let those Children complete their sacrifice of the adults for the Corn.

I'll talk more about the BCMess at the end of the post. But for now let's focus on some pre season predictions in the conference championships.


The first pre season prediciton is official. TCU has won the MWC, which means that...well, none of us get any points. So there is a literally no reason to bring up the MWC again for the rest of the year.


It's down to: Clemson, Virginia, VA Tech

Still in the hunt: Jim

That's what your ACC championship looks like now. Jim is the only person who can gain points from the ACC championship now, but somehow Virginia is still in the mix here. And, they find themselves in a fortuitous situation. Virginia hosts the Hokies next week. Virginia Tech may be the most under the radar team, who wins every fucking year. They've won at least 10 games every year since 2004, but never seem to get into the National Championship.

Big East

Still in it: Louisville, Cincinnati, WVU, Pitt, Rutgers

Still in the hunt: Everyone

Seriously, Cincinnati must have no desire to win this conference. We all had WVU or Pitt. They play on Friday. There ya go. I have no idea who would win in tie breaking situations. But, I think the Big East does Co-champions. So, if both end up winning the Co-championship, we'll all win points.

BIG 12 (10?)

Still Alive: Ok, Ok State, Not Ok State's woman's basketball coach

Still Alive: All of us

It comes down to both of those choke artists game against each other.

Big 10 (12?)

It's down to: Penn St, Mich St, Wisconsin

It's down to: Shawn, Adam, Andrew, Bono, Munez, Joe, Geiss

Michigan St clinched their side of the conference (the legends or whatever), while Wisconsin plays Penn St next week to decide who they will play against.
Everybody else had Nebraska, who blew it this weekend. Wisconsin needs to beat PSU and Mich St in consecutive weeks. If they lose, nobody gets points.

Conference USA

Down to: Houston, Tulsa, Southern Miss, East Carolina, Marshall

Down to: Simon, Adam, Bono, Joe, Andrew

Southern Miss should have locked their side up last week, but they lost to a bad UAB team. They play a bad Memphis team next. They win, they are in the Conf Champ. They lose. It's down to them, Marshall, and Ohio and I have no fucking clue who wins. Houston plays Tulsa on Friday. The winner makes the Conf Championship game.


Down to: Ohio, Temple, Kent St, North Ill, Toledo

Down to: Shawn, Simon, Folden, Geiss, Adam, Andrew, John, Colin, Munez

Between the 9 of us, we have like 4 of those teams winning it. So, I. don't. fucking. know.

PAC 12

Look, I don't know. I don't know how the conference championship game is going to work in this conference. Is USC allowed to play for it. I don't know. I guess we're all still in it. If Oregon wins, it knocks those of us out of it that have Stanford. If Oregon loses it's Stanford.


Still in it: Alabama, LSU, Arkansas, Georgia

We all had Alabama winning that conference. I don't know what the hell is going to happen here. All I can say is that John had Arkansas in the National Championship, and if they win against LSU, then that's a fucking awesome pick.


Still in it: Lousiana Tech, Nevada

Still in it: Simon, Geiss, Folden, Joe, John, Munez

Nevada could have locked up the WAC this weekend, but blew it to Louisiana Tech. So LT plays a bad New Mexico team next week for the conference. It used to be a lot easier to predict this conference when Boise St was there.

Sun Belt Conference

Winner: Arkansas St
Correctly Predicted by: NOBODY

We're all bad.


BCS Top #10

2. Alabama
3. Arkansas
4. Oklahoma St
5. VA Tech
6. Stanford
7. Boise St
8. Houston
9. Oklahoma
10. Oregon

Add Oklahoma and Oregon to the list of teams that nobody can get points from. Basically, we all have one team left in the Title Picture. John with Arkansas, the rest of us with Alabama.

6 of us (Shawn, Adam, Simon, Andrew, Bono, and Folden), all have Alabama winning the championship.

My prediction.

LSU beats Arkansas, Auburn beats Alabama, Oklahoma beat Ok St, Notre Dame beats Stanford, VA Tech loses to Clemson, and Houston leap frogs Boise St to play for the National Championship, where they beat LSU 83-6.

College Pick 'em.

Munez did some domination over the rest of us, correctly predicting 14 games. Nice job. Shawn was pretty close behind with 12, and Folden with 11. The rest of us were significantly further down.

Overall Standings:

Unbelievably, Shawn has caught Andrew.

Shawn 135
Andrew 135
Munez 130
Adam 129
Folden 128
Geiss 127
Simon 124
Colin 123
Bono 123
Joe 119
Jim 116
John 75

Tomorrow, you'll get the fantasy and pro updates. Even though, all the games are either blow outs or (in the case of Simon and Andrew) already have gone final. Looks like there will be more shake ups in the standings though. May do a pro predictions update if I feel like it. Until tomorrow, I love you all

Football God Week 11...I wish Folden still wanted to be our friends

Hello, my friendly friends (except folden).I'm going to start with a bit of a college football prediction update by conference and national championship picture to start things off.

National Championship

The Big game of the week had Stanford getting analized by Oregon on their home turf. That's killed my chances of having them in the national championship. So we'll add my name to the list of the dead.

FSU - Folden
Stanford - Adam
Wisconsin - Andrew/Shawn

Keep in mind these aren't the ppl we have winning the national championship, just the team we had getting beat in it.

The two teams at the top LSU & OK ST, nobody had in the national championship.

11 of us had Alabama in the national championship, and six of us had them winning it. They currently sit 3rd in the BCS.

The only person who didn't have Alabama in the Championship was John, who had Arkansas. They currently sit 6th with a game against LSU still to come.

Bono had Oregon in the National Championship, and they currently sit 4th.

7 people had Oklahoma in the National Championship, with 6 people having them winning it. They sit 5th.

There are some shake ups that can still happen in that mix, with Arkansas v LSU & Oklahoma and Oklahoma State still to play.

In our BCS game picks, I'm not even going to try and make an update until they are picked. However, I will say this as a clarification the way the points go. If you had LSU in a BCS game, but not the national championship, you do not get the points for it. Just as I, having Stanford in the national championship will not get points if they make a BCS game. Next, conference champion updates.


The ACC championship game will be Clemson vs Virginia Tech. None of us will get any points from this, except for maybe Jim, who had VA Tech winning the ACC.

Big 12, MWC, SEC

We all had Boise, Oklahoma, and Alabama winning these. Basically, it doesn't matter who wins these. But for the hell of it, Boise is basically done, Bama probably done, and Oklahoma beats OK state they win the Big 12.

Big East

We all had WVU, who are 3-2 in the big east race, except for Andrew and Chris who had Pitt. They are 3-2 as well. Pitt and WVU play eachother next, and they both also would need a little help to win this conference, mainly in a Cinci loss.

Big 10

This is an interesting conference to break down. Folden had Ohio State, which isn't likely to happen at this point. The rest of us had Wisconsin and Nebraska winning the conference. Neither of them are 1st in there side of the conference right now, with Michigan St and Penn st holding those distinctions. Mich St plays Indiana and Northwestern to finish off the season, so there would need to be an upset for them not to make the championship game. Nebraska plays Michigan this weekend. If they were to win this game, and Mich St were to lose, Nebraska would have the tie breaker.

In the Big 10 leaders or whatever the fuck, Wisconsin plays Ill and Penn st. So, if they win out they are Jerry Sandusky's penis in a 10 year old's the the locker room.

Conference USA

This Conference is pretty clear cut. Southern Miss (which nobody picked) against the winner of the Tulsa v Houston game. Nobody picked Tulsa, and myself, Bono, and Simon are the only people who picked Houston. So, basically everybody but the three of us should be rooting for Tulsa in a couple weeks. Also, Houston is very close to clinching an automatic at large BCS bid.


You would think with only two weeks left, this conference would clear up a bit. But, it the fuck won't. As of this time; Ohio, Temple, Kent St, Miami (OH), Northern Ill, Toledo, Ball St, and Eastern Michigan are still able to win this conference. For fucks sake. Everybody, has a chance to win points here (except Bono). So fuck this for now.

Pac 10

Oregon will win one side of this conference, but who will they play in the conf championship? Ucla....or Arizona St...who are a combined one game over .500...Is it to early to anoint the championship to Oregon, and we can just skip that pitiful game?

Simon, myself, and Colin had Stanford...everyone else will most likely be winning some points.

Sun Belt

We all sucked baddddddddd...moving on


It's come down to Nevada and Louisiana Tech, which leaves half of the people with a chance to win still. Nevada plays LA Tech this week, so I'll get back to you...on to the pick 'em.

Pretty simple for the bonus this week. Shawn performed well again, and put up 20 combined points. A few people put up 19, but that's not good enough. Shawn also cut into Andrew's lead a little bit in the overall college standings, which is pretty sexy. Overall totals.

Fantasy Football

Another crazy week in fantasy, with the standings getting closer and closer. We had five games remaining in this season going into this week, with 9 teams at either 4-5 or 5-4. Let's see how the games played out.

Bono (4-5) vs Jim (5-4)

Bono's smack talk question of "can i get a fucking break" has been answered with two wins a second win in a row. Bono got a huge game out of Fitz, while Jim lost his 3rd straight game. Bono got another break, this one in the form of Matt Schaub's foot. So, now Bono has the two best WR's on his team who have noone to throw the ball to them. More on Jim in next week's preview.

Simon (4-5) vs Geiss (4-5)

Geiss's team can't decide if they want to be a bum squad that put's up 60 points a week, or a monster who puts up 140. There really isn't any other middle ground for him, but this week they showed up huge putting a hurting on Simon's team. Simon started the season 3-0 and since then have lost 6 of it's last 7. Credit to Geiss on the nice start of Laurent Robinson.

John (4-5) vs Folden (5-4)

John's strategy is starting to pay off. He's up to 5-5, even though he doesn't touch or look at his line up. Folden's team seems to live and die on Vick's abilities to play well, and he may have to make his playoff push without, now that he has broken ribs, and is still a black qb. Folden has lost 2 in a row since his 5 game winning streak. Folden also doesn't call and doesn't come home anymore, so he doesn't want to be friends anymore.

Adam (4-5) vs Shawn (4-5)

This was a game of trending upwards vs trending downwards. My team took stellar games from most of the team and a great performance of Michael Bush to take down Shawn. Shawn started the season 4-1, now falling to 4-6. I, on the other hand, started 0-5 and am now 5-5, tying Folden for the longest winning streak of the season.

Colin (6-3) vs Munez (6-3)

THE LITTLE MAN WON'T STAY DOWN. I'm such a lover of Munez and all that he is. His team started 1-6 this year. Virtually out of the playoff race. He then put up wins against Simon, Jim, and Andrew to move to 4-6 on the year. Colins smite of the Football God's last weekend continues to plague him, as he loses his second game in a row. The big difference in this game was Tom Brady's 37 points vs Jay Cutler's 4.


Andrew (6-3) vs Joe (5-4)

Andrew's team put up 150 points this week. Half of those coming from Aaron Rodgers and the fucking bears defense. Credit goes to Joe, whose team hadn't put up a lot of points in like 4 weeks. However, Andrew lucked out with the self destruction of the Lions this weekend. Seriously, at 4:00 on Sunday, it looked like Andrew was going to get murdered, but his team ended up putting up a big number.

This moves Andrew to 7-3, in sole possession of first place. One more win may be enough to put Andrew into the playoffs, and going 2-2 down the stretch will certainly be enough.


Andrew 7-3
Colin 6-4
Jim 5-5

Joe 5-5
Folden 5-5

Current Playoff Picture

1. Andrew

4. Adam
5. Joe

3. Jim
6. Geiss

2. Colin


This is the last week before we start replaying our schedule, when revenge games start up. As of right now the cut off for playoffs is 5-5. As you can see, that means that Bono, John, and Folden would not make the play offs because of the tie breaker, which is the most points scored. So, the last four weeks of the season are going to be BANANA!

Bono (5-5) v Colin (6-4)

Bono tries to get above .500 and into good playoff positioning. Colin tries to get back on track and hope that Jay Cutler doesn't shit the bed again. Bono hasn't scored a lot of points this year, so he needs another win pretty bad here. However, Colin seems to have the better team and matchups here by far.

Folden (5-5) v Joe (5-5)

This is a big match up for both of these guys. Something has to give in the standings at some point, and this seems to be the week when it will happen. Folden is in the same position as Bono points wise, but a loss wouldn't end his season. Whoever wins this game will be in position for a playoff birth. The loser will need to make up ground.

Adam (5-5) v John (5-5)

Ditto in almost every way in this matchup. I try to extend my winning streak to 6 games, while John tries to extend his not giving a shit streak to 8 weeks. I would like to consider this an easy win, but knowing John's team, they will probably put up 130 points.

Andrew (7-3) v Simon (4-6)

Simon needs a win and he needs it bad. It sucks he's going against the best team in the league to get it, however this may not be as bad as it seems. Simon is getting Andrew on a week when Andrew has 4 players on bye, so he has a pretty good chance. That's why I'm calling this my UPSET OF THE WEEK.

Jim (5-5) v Geiss (5-5)

Jimbo's team is trending down lately. He has lost three games in a row and he goes against Geiss needing a win. Unfortunately, he has Drew Brees on bye. Jim, who had gone off all year long, has hit on tough times recently. Geiss has an opportunity to get above .500 for the first time in a long time, and it's a pretty good match up for him to do it.


Shawn (4-6) v Munez (4-6)

The Glove tries to continue his save the season campaign against Shawn, who has dropped 5 games in a row. This is pretty much two teams trying to keep there season alive against each other. Shawn's gotta win another one at some point (right?). The loser of this game will not be mathematically eliminated, but the writing will essentially be on the wall.


(college pick 'em + pro pick 'em + fantasy football (10 points per win) + (bonus)

Andrew 126+88+70+(10)=294

I'm tired, so I'm just going to end on the note that Jim and Simon are tied for the 4th fucking week in a row. Check up on your numbers and mine boys. Until next week, I love you.

Football God Week 10 - UPSET SUNDAY/monday

So, I'm not going to do a college predictions catch up, I'm going to wait until next week. By then, we should have a clear picture of some thins. Instead, I'm going to focus on how fucking crazy fantasy football was this week. And, when we get to the standings, I think it's going to be surprising how close this is.

Andrew (5-3) v Folden (5-3)

This was the only game this week that was between two teams with winning records, and it wasn't even close. Andrew figured out that the best way to beat a guy on a hot streak is to score 160 goddamn points against him. Andrew moves to 6-3, Folden loses for the first time since week 3, moving to 5-4.

Now for the fun. The next 5 games were between the teams that are 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12 in the standings, against someone with a winning record. And, you know how they all turned out. All 5 of the worse teams won! In(fuckin)sanity.

Colin 6-2 v Adam 3-5

I'll start by talking about this one, because there is a personal story that comes along with this game. I was in Buffalo this week, and Colin and I made plans to hang out Sunday for the football games. Sunday morning, I got a text informing me I was being cancelled on so Colin could do FUCKING HOUSE WORK. This was the Football God's way of paying me back for this unmanly act. And keep in mind. Colin and I are good friends. We were in the same fraternity. He lived in the same house as me for a year. I was in his fucking wedding 5 MONTHS AGO.

So because of that, I want to thank my team for whoopin that monkey ass all weekend long. The longest win streak in the league now belongs to me at 4, as I move to 4-5, Colin moves to 6-3.

(side note: When I started my win streak, I taunted Joe, via text message. He responded with something along the lines of "yeah, well you only have one win." Since, then my team has not lost. Speaking of Joe...

Joe 5-3 v Geiss 3-5

This matchup came down to Monday night, Joe had a 15 point lead, with Desean Jackson to play. Geiss had Matt Forte. Jackson might as well have not even showed up. Forte did, and in the 4th quarter Geiss took the lead. Geiss moves to 4-5, Joe 5-4.

Munez 2-6 v Jim 5-3

MUNEZ, MUNEZ, MUNEZ. Jesus christ, I love rooting for the underdog. Munez had a 6 game losing streak, which usually takes someone out of a fantasy football league pretty fucking quick. However, Munez has rebounded to beat Jim, who has suddenly hit hard times, for his second straight win. Jim jumped out to a good record this year, and holds a substantial point lead over everybody else but Colin, so he can take a little bit of a slide, but obviously not for to long.

This game came down to tonight, as well. A tight score with Munez having PHI defense playing against Jeremy Maclin for Jim. Somehow, Phili's D put up just enough for Munez. He moves to 3-6, Jim to 5-4.

John 3-5 v Shawn 4-4

Poor Shawn had 5 players on bye this week, including all of his running backs. Nothing screamed loss like this game for Shawn. Except, John hadn't changed his line up in 3 weeks, so who the fuck knows. After only playing in 3 games this year, Peyton Hillis was finally benched, and John got some steady play as both men move to 4-5 on the season.

Bono 3-5 v Simon 4-4

This was one hell of a game. Bono had less than an 8 point lead going into tonight, with Simon's kicker, Alex Henery left to play. Henery made it to 7 points halfway through the 3rd quarter. Bono had less than a one point lead, meaning that any score by the eagles would end it for Bono. However, Henery was shut out the rest of the game, and Bono and Simon both move to 4-5.


Colin 6-3
Andrew 6-3
Jim 5-4
Joe 5-4
Folden 5-4
Simon 4-5
Shawn 4-5
Adam 4-5
Geiss 4-5
Bono 4-5
John 4-5
Munez 3-6

Pretty hard to believe that 9 games into the season 3 games is all that separates first place from last place. In fact, if the playoffs started tomorrow, there would be a 6 way tie for the last playoff spot. I've played in close to twenty fantasy leagues, and I've never been in anything this tight.

Next Week's Matchups

Colin 6-3 v Munez 3-6

If Munez wants to continue his comeback he's going to have to do it against Colin in a week where there are no NFL teams on bye. At this point, with 5 to play, two more wins would likely get Colin into the playoffs, where 3 would guarantee it. For Munez, his only hope is to keep on winning.

Bono 4-5 v Jim 5-4

Bono's team finally showed up last weekend, and all signs point to him getting Andre Johnson back this week. Jim has lost two in a row, and losing a third could take what was originally a near certainty for playoffs and put it in doubt. Jim has some good matchups though, so it may be an uphill battle for Bono.

John 4-5 v Folden 5-4

Stephen Jackson has gone off lately for Folden, but so has Adrian Foster for John. Folden is most likely not going to win any games off a tie breaker this year, so it's important for him to keep on winning. John continues to play the part of the guy who gives the least shit this year, so because of that I'm going to pick him for the UPSET OF THE WEEK. Folden has better matchups and is projected to win by like 30 points, but something tells me John is going to sneak into the playoffs and win this whole thing, despite his lack of caring.

Adam 4-5 v Shawn 4-5

One of us will move to .500 this week. Trends would say that it would be me. I'm riding a 4 game winning streak while Shawn is on a 4 game losing streak. However, Shawn started off strong and now his team is all done with there byes, and they are getting healthy too. Likewise, his matchups are far better than mine. Should be an interesting game.

Game of the Week

Andrew 6-3 v Joe 5-4

Despite having a team that doesn't look great on paper, Andrew's scrappy team continues to win, despite having no real superstars (save for Aaron Rodgers). Joe started off 3-1 and has sputtered a bit since then. They are matched up very well this week, with Aaron Rodgers projected to put up a disgusting 37 points next week. Before the season, Andrew talked about taking Rodgers with the 3rd overall pick, and I tore him up for it, saying he should take a back. I WAS WRONG.

Interesting Stats

I have beat the 1st place team 2 weeks in a row.

Going into our game in week 5 Me and Folden's combined record was 1-7. Since our game, our combined record is 7-1.

In his current 3 game losing streak, Simon has lost by a combined 16 points. That's brutal.

Colin has scored at least 100 points in every game this year.

Week 9 is the first time Bono has put up 100 points since week 3.

9 of the 12 teams in our league are either 4-5 or 5-4.

College Pick 'em

LSU beat Alabama this week and the BCS punished them by dropping them 1 fucking spot in the polls. I say fuck that. Huge game this week between Oregon and Stanford.

In Pick 'em Shawn rebounded to score 12 and win this week. I was right behind him with 11. Here are the stats on the season

Andrew 116
Shawn 112
Adam 112
Geiss 108
Folden 108
Simon 108
Bono 108
Munez 106
Colin 105
Joe 102
Jim 101
John 75

Pro Pick'em

In Po Pick 'em myself, Colin, Simon, Joe, Folden, and Jim all scored 8 points to take the lead, with Shawn coming in at 7. This means that Shawn and I tied with 19 total points to win the 5 point bonus this week. Totals for the season

Colin 94
Folden 90
Simon 83
Shawn 83
Bono 82
Jim 80
Andrew 80
Joe 79
Geiss 76
Adam 75
Munez 73
John 71

So, let's get to the standings. College + Pro + Fantasy 10 points per win + (bonus) = Total Score

Andrew 116+80+60+(10)=266
Shawn 112+83+40+(5)=240
Adam 112+75+40+(10)=237
Geiss 108+76+40= 224
Folden 108+90+50+(10)=258
Simon 108+83+40+(5)=236
Bono 108+82+40+(15)=245
Munez 106+73+30=209
Colin 105+94+60+(15)=274
Joe 102+79+50+(5)= 236
Jim 101+80+50+(5)=236
John 75+71+40= 186


1. Colin 274 (even)
2. Andrew 266 (^1)
3. Folden 258 (-1)
4. Bono 245 (even)
5. Shawn 240 (+3)
6. Adam 237 (+3)
t7. Jim 236 (-1)
t7 Simon 236 (-1)
t7 Joe 236 (-2)
10. Geiss 224
11. Munez 209
12. John 186


Simon is tied for the 5TH time in a row. 2 with Folden, 3 in a row with Jim, and this time as well with Joe.

Colin has led Football God all year.

Next week, there really should be some predictions in. But, we will have to wait and see.

As of now, Oregon, Stanford, Alabama, Arkansas, and Oklahoma are all teams that we had in our predictions for the National Championship that still have a chance to make it. LSU and OK ST, the two teams at the top, nobody had.

Until next week, I love you all.
