Hey guys, sorry I've been so shitty this year about getting any updates in. But, I'm gonna try to make up for it a little bit now. I'll start the 2014 season off with everybody's intros.
Your Champion: Joe McLane
Football God History:
Joe has been extremely consistent, constantly finishing in the upper half of the league every year since he started playing in this league. No reason to think any different this year.
2014 Prediction: 2nd
Last Years Runner Up: Colin Reilly
Colin turned the corner a couple of years ago, and it's been either feast or famine for him. This year he either takes a step forward or takes a step back.
2014 Prediction: 5th
Last years 3rd place finisher: Rob Klingensmith
Funny story. I remember Rob's first year in Football God he had Carolina winning the Superbowl and Oklahoma winning the NCAA Championship. Both of those teams were so bad, that by October both of Rob's champions were 100% eliminated from contention. Rob makes ballsy picks, and he either struggles or thrives.
2014 Prediction 11th
2 Time Champion Anthony Folden
Anthony has been the most consistently successful player in the history of Football God. He is one of only three people to play every year, and he has finished in the top three 4 out of 6 times. However, two of the last three years he's been struggling near the bottom. He's a lot like the 2014 Steelers. Trying to reclaim that fame.
2014 Prediction: 6th
2 Time Champion Adam Johnson
2008: 4th (of 4, so not good)
It's always weird typing my name in the third person. I have two championships and a second place in my history, but I hated my draft 4 rounds into it and was drunk when I made my predictions
2014 Prediction 10th
2011 Champion: Shawn Voyten
Shawn has a history of either crushing it or middling. It feels like a big bounce back year for him, but I also picked him last year. So fuck him.
2014 Prediction: 4th
Just Out of the Money Last Year: Andrew Johnson
Andrew has done pretty well under the radar the last few years. Finishing just out of the money in 2011 and 2013, and only two spots back in 2012. I get the feeling though that Andrew put less thought and give a shit into Football God as in years past.
2014 Prediction: 9th
Chris Coldsmith (Munez)
Munez has struggled since his first year in Football God. He steps out of the box on some of his Predictions, which hasn't always worked out well for him. Maybe he flips the script.
2014 Prediction: 3rd
Aside from 2012, Jim has been consistent in Football God. That's his only trip into the lower 3rd of the standings. The problem is most of the time he finishes in the middle third, right outside of the money party. I feel like this year is the year Jim...keeps doing the same
2014 Prediction 8th
Finally, my favorite part of the introductions.
The real question here is how did John not finish in last his first year??? John opened the season this year by forgetting to do his College picks. The question now, is John the only dynasty we have had in the history of Football God?
2014 Prediction: Dead Last
(Glass Shatters. Stone Cold's music hits)
After a two year hiatus, Dan Geissler has returned in sexy fashion. Bringing with him a new baby and a South Carolina tan. Amazing how Geiss has lived down there for two years and still doesn't have as bad of an accent as Bono did after he moved an hour and half away from home.
2014 Predicton: 7th
And, finally, introducing, my prediction for the 2014 Football God Champion
Gary has no history, having never played Football God before. He seems like the type of guy to use smarts and idiotic luck to pull his way to a championship.
2014 Prediction: 1st
Last year I only made four predictions. I got 1, 2, and 3 wrong. I said Voyten, Folden, and Andrew. But, as usual I got the last place team correct. John, as always. So, here are all the predictions for this year in order.
Football God VII Predictions
Why have I picked you where I have? I have no idea. I picked John #12 because he always finishes in last. And, I picked Gary because of Karma. Karma for how much all of us that know him made fun of him for his misspelling's during a fantasy draft.
I'll be back either later this week or next Monday with the first scoring update of the year. Salude.
